Ultimatums: Taking the next step … or not?

Filed under: Advice — posted by Breakup Girl @ 10:35 am

UltimatumsDecision time on December 7, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

I’m struggling with the decision of whether I should break up with my girlfriend. I’m 32, she’s 28 and we’ve been dating for a little over a year. I guess it’s to the point of do we take the next step, marriage, or do we go our separate ways? I had thought that we were progressing towards marriage. However, for the last several weeks, she has seemed increasingly unhappy. Neither of us seem to have much interest in sex anymore. And, I know that both of feel the other is taking us for granted. Don’t get me wrong, I think she is a great person. And, the last thing that I want to do is cause her pain. But at the same time I don’t want to waste her tine and mine on a love that’s grown cold. I guess the nutshell questions are: Is there hope to respark what we once had? And, if so, how?

— Jim

Dear Jim,

Time to pop the question. No, silly, not that question. This one: “Hey, muffin, is there something bothering you?” What worries me is not that you two are unhappy; it’s that you, Sparky, have no clue as to why. Either you two have to hone that thing we call Communication Skills, or you have to admit that your heart isn’t in this in the first place. And I have to admit that I’m leaning toward the latter. Why? Well, to be fair, perhaps passionate poetry just isn’t your thing. But “Don’t get me wrong, I think she is a great person,” is what you say before you say, “However, I am a stronger candidate for the school board.” Not before you say “I do.”

  3. I contacted Dr. Lee on http://ancientfathersandmothers.com and also gave him a call on his mobile number which is +1408-359-6554, because someone that I loved the most suddenly left me. I have always been the one that has been hurt. I knew that when I first met him, he was the one I have always been looking for. For some reason he’s been holding on to the pain from a past relationship. Dr. Lee so far has been in contact with me every day and has decided that he will take my case. He told me that me and the guy was very well matched and he will help clear his mind from all the negativity. Thank you Dr. Lee of http://ancientfathersandmothers.com. Thank you for choosing my case. Thank you for bringing happiness back into my life again. We have never been this happy or passionate, all thanks to Dr. Lee of http://ancientfathersandmothers.com. The most happiest part of it all is that we are now living together in same apartment. Go grab your happiness via http://ancientfathersandmothers.com and it’s also possible to give him a call on +1408-359-6554

    great. I don’t know who you’re however certainly you’re
    going to a well-known blogger when you are not already.

  9. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive a
    forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83
    views. I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

  11. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well
    as with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it
    yourself? Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like
    this one these days.
