READERSвЂ™ GUIDANCE ABOUT PAST WEEKвЂ™S PROBLEM
Last weekвЂ™s problem: A 23-year-old woman wrote about a man she kissed in a nightclub. Later on, she told him that she liked him but he stated he just wished to be friends and didnвЂ™t wish to be вЂњtied downвЂќ. She said this made her feel unsightly and undesired and she desired the advice that is following Trish: вЂњShould we continue being their buddy or put my emotions apart and proceed totally?вЂќ
ReaderвЂ™s advice: it had been refreshing to see such a mild, almost traditional problem in Tell Me About It. I do want to tell this girl that, although itвЂ™s unlikely this is actually the final time she’s going to feel the bitter pang of unrequited romantic emotions, she shouldnвЂ™t lose heart. I’m within my 60s and I also can remember experiences that are various these from my teenager years and my 20s. Does not every person? They truly are simply element of growing up. After an excellent little bit of rejection вЂ“ the majority of that I can laugh about now, decades later вЂ“ I discovered the passion for my life at the same time once I actually was romance that is nвЂ™t expecting.
Move ahead, enjoy your young life, focus on your friendships, develop brand new passions, continue adventures, and don’t forget: you wonвЂ™t even remember this manвЂ™s name while it hurts now, in years to come. Barbara, Co Dublin
