Ultimatums: Making things right

Filed under: Advice — posted by Abby @ 10:09 am

UltimatumsCourse corrections on December 7, 1998

Dear Breakup Girl,

Here’s my story… I was supposed to have been married to my long time girlfriend, companion, lover and best friend of many years this past fall. I screwed up incredibly in early 1998 by telling her I wasn’t sure of our plans. I moved out of our apartment and away for a few months. We kept in touch during this time and I have been extremely regretful of my decision and I am asking her to let me back into her life.

I proposed to her a month ago but she said she needs time to sort things out. She is the love of my life. I want to move forward and make things right. I think she does as well but the pain and lack of trust in me is still there. I want to hold on to this dream of us being together forever.

What should I do?
— Bumming in the Bay

Dear Bumming,

Ask her (a) what she needs you to do in order to help restore trust, and (b) exactly how much “time” she needs. Then do (a), and hold her to (b).

  1. Nice post. I learn something new and challenging on sites I stumbleupon everyday.

    It’s always interesting to read articles from other authors and
    use something from other websites.

    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. However just imagine if you added some great
    visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos, this site could certainly be
    one of the very best in its field. Terrific blog!

    that makes people want more? I mean Breakup Girl »
    Ultimatums: Making things right is kinda boring.
    You could look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they
    write post titles to grab people interested. You might
    add a related video or a picture or two to get people interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it would
    make your website a little bit more interesting.
