Creepily, I can see what Google searches bring people to this blog. Sometimes it’s fun to try to help these searchers out.
“I think I’m very unattracted to my boyfriend, is that a good reason to break up?”
Yes. One of the best, in fact.
“Do I text the girl that blew me?”
Depends. Do you want to see her again? Do you plan to do something nice for her if you do get together again? If the answer to both those questions is no, then, no. If yes, then text away.
“I want to be a teacher but I have an embarrassing name.”
Really? You’d let that stop you? Kids can be cruel, but if they make fun of your name it’s far more likely that they sense your shame and weirdness about it and are going for a weak spot than anything about the name itself.
Names can be changed, btw. It’s a hassle, but it can be done. Maybe this is the year that you reinvent yourself as NewName NewName Comma Teacher.
“My boyfriend was rude to my parents, what do I do?”
Ask him why he behaved like that. Let him know that it’s not cool and you’d like him to apologize to your parents. Watch carefully for his reaction – if he tries to make it your fault or your parents’ fault instead of owning up to his own behavior, proceed directly to breaking up. If he steps up and owns the behavior, write it off as a mistake for now but be watchful – is he rude to other people? Is he rude to you?
“What if when I left our second date my crush said nothing but ‘text me’?”
You could try texting him or her. Someone who likes you will text back promptly and it will begin a conversation. Someone who isn’t that into you will not respond quickly and it will not feel like a conversation.
“I hate my girlfriend now that she’s moved in.”
Oops. Do you think it’s just the strain of adjusting to having someone around all the time and that it will get better in time? Can you remember why you fell in love with her? Are you being kind to each other? If you do break up with her now, you’ll feel like less of a jerk if you put a little money aside to help her find a new place.
“My parents hate my boyfriend.”
This is a rough one. Sometimes parents have really good reasons for being concerned about their kids’ dating partners, but sometimes they are interfering and controlling. Have you asked your parents to lay out what they don’t like about him and listened sincerely to their concerns? Are those concerns good ones? What do your friends think of him?
“Girl with ugly teeth gets fucked”
That’s extremely specific, son.
