Predicament of the Week
In which Breakup Girl addresses the situation that has, this
week, brought her the most (a) amusement, (b) relief that it is happening to
someone else, and/or (c) proof that she could not possibly be making this stuff
Dear Breakup Gurrl,
OK. so I have these problems. their names are Patrick and Preston. lemme
give ya a lil background info on both of em.
PATRICK: is this really gorgeous football playa @ my school. now I think
totally beautiful but kinda a jerk. OK, really a jerk sumtimes but other times
he's a really fun guy. i also think he's hella cool cus he's really
well...we went out at tha beginning of last school year for like a cupla months
but i broke up with him because i didn't want a boyfriend @ that moment. this
broke his heart. (or so everyone...including him...tell me.) well, we didn't
talk hardly @ all after that but he still really liked me. i, unfortunately,
couldn't return tha feelings. then, @ a party about a month ago, he came up
to me (out of tha blue) and just struck up a convo with me and totally acted
like he liked me. this was cool with me tho cuz i had recently decided i liked
him and had been thinkin about him a lot. tha prob was that he was slightly
drunk, but not so much that he wasn't aware of wut he was sayin. to this day
he says he meant everything he saud that nite. so we've been talkin 4 about
a month, which is kinda ok.
OK. PRESTON: wow. preston is this incredibly sweet, passionate, caring guy.
i guess u could call him tha "perfect" boyfriend. we went out for a cupla
also. we broke up tha day school ended this year, like, two months ago, cuz
he was just too real...too perfect, ya know? i'm so used to complete jerks that
on tha rare occasion when i get a good guy, i freak and don't know how to hold
on to em. i'm so used to defending myself (emotionally) that i can't take tha
loving, sincerity of a good guy.
WELL my real problem is this...preston and i have been talkin for like tha
past month. he called me and told me how much he still cared for me and all
and i just can't resist, but yet ialso want to push it away @ tha same time.
now call me shallow but I'd rather go with patrick because I'm a
a football playa...and i'm not scared of hurting him because i don't honestly
thinks he cares 4 me tha way preston does. now i think i mite love
i don't want to go with him because i don't wanna hurt him again. i care 4 him
too much to make him hurt tha way i did b4. So wut do i do, bg gurl? i know
i'm one big twisted sistah so PLEASE HELP ASAP!!

dear gemini wunder,
well gurl, i mite go ahead and call ya shallow.
i know how hella cool it feels to date the
but (1) "hes a football playa" and (2) "i dont honestly think
he cares for me" ... are two *twisted* reasons to go out w/ someone.
gemini, if ya dont LIKElike preston for who he is,
whateva. but how did u get so "used to complete jerks?" is it cuz
you call yourself "shallow?" and so u figure that your
have 2 B shallow 2?
well, whoeva the next guy is, i hope you spend tha
cupla months not defending yourself, but cheering 4 yourself.
god, i feel like a big dork.
