Dear Breakup Girl,
When I go out with a guy, and things aren't working out, of course, it ends.
I have been dumped only once in my life, so I am usually the one who does it.
But, for some reason, when I break up with a guy, a piece of me really wants
him to still want me back. I am cool about when and where to do it, but I have
always wondered if what I wear when it happens makes a difference. I still want
him to fall for me afterward -- should I just wear something regular, something
that shows off my figure, dress up, or go grunge? Or does it even make a
-- Li'l Miss
Listen, Missy, put your ego back in mothballs. Wanting
him to want you back is human, but acting on it -- especially if you dumped him
-- is tacky. Don't go there. No matter what you're wearing.
But while we're on the subject, Breakup Girl will
pause for a fashion moment. When it comes to looking marvelous (for
non-nefarious purposes), believe none of what you read about cute
sundresses and soft, fuzzy sweaters as boy magnets. There are those of us who
know from experience how guys react to the sight of women playing hockey.
Breakup Girl's fashion advice: whenever possible, wear full equipment.
