My life-changing breakup

My life-changing breakup

Q

Hi Darcy. First of all, you are amazing. Thank you for giving young women like me someone to look up to.

So I just had a breakup and I’ve been drowning in “how to get over a breakup” posts.

What I really want to read is someone else’s breakup story from someone I admire. I know you’ve been married for a long time but you must have had a breakup at some point. Would you ever  consider sharing your own struggle with a breakup?

A

Absolutely.

Is the third time a charm?

Is the third time a charm?

Q

Dear Dr. Darcy:

I dated my ex for almost 2 yrs. We broke up summer 2017. He up and left one day and blamed it on dealing with a family death and, "this is how I always act when something like this happens."

We remained friendly and friends-with-benefits for a good 8-months. Then he got a new job and did not need me anymore, I guess. Three months after no contact he contacted me and told me he made a huge mistake. Told me everything I wanted to hear. I was a bitch to him the first few months because I was scared he’d leave again. I wanted to embrace him but did not. He told me he changed and was not going to quit anymore, [so we got back together]. Then, he quit. I am now back in the friend zone again because he’s stressed with his father’s illness and his career.

He is the love of my life. Do I stay friends in hopes we can work out things once and for all?

The Dick Pic

The Dick Pic

The only thing that sets off my patriot-phobia [read: shame of being American] more than hearing Trump speak is the statistic that 49% of single American women have been on the receiving end of a penis photo they didn’t request.

From accidental penis tweets and unsolicited sexts to cyber-flashing random women on subway trains through AirDrop, an epic number of women today are finding themselves face to iPhone with the dreaded dick pic.

The thing that mystifies me is, WHY?

WHY THE DICK PIC?
