Dear Wendy: “My BFF Dumped Me Because My Husband Is Friends With Her Ex”

I have been friends with an interesting lady for about six years. She even was a bridesmaid in my wedding in July. My problem is this: she and her boyfriend of four years had a pretty nasty breakup a few weeks before my husband’s and my wedding; no one was really in the wrong, they were just really terrible together and the relationship should have ended years ago. Before they broke up, she and her boyfriend and my then-fiance and I would double-date. My husband and her boyfriend ended up really hitting it off and becoming close friends, a status they maintained following the break-up. About a month ago she decided that she had to cut her ex, and everyone connected to him in any way, out of her life, including me. I feel a huge sense of loss because she was perhaps my closest friend, but I never wronged her in any way other than not demanding that my husband end his friendship with her ex as it seems she would have had me do. Should I leave any thoughts of renewing the friendship and move on? Should I call her and ask her to go to lunch? I can’t help but hope that, in time, she will become a more stable and mature person and we can resume our friendship, but at the same time, I am still reeling from the betrayal that I feel. — Missing My (Immature) Friend

Dear Wendy: “I Can’t Stop Dreaming About My Ex”

I keep dreaming about my first love, in an obsessive, gut-wrenching way, even though I am in a long-term relationship with a man that I really truly love. My current boyfriend is amazing to me and I am really scared I am going to screw things up because of my strange behavior. The dreaming started when I saw my ex for the first time last summer, after not seeing him for three years. In my dreams I am trying to read letters from him that I can never open, or we are having an affair. I always choose my boyfriend in the end, even though there is a part of me that misses my old love. I get that this is a closure issue, but the question is how do I deal with it? Do I seek him (the ex) out to try and make the dreams go away or do I continue to suppress them, which has over the past year only made things worse? I have to do something, because they just won’t stop. — Sleepless in Seattle

What’s Your Post-Breakup Recipe?

I was reading this article where a woman claims her good friend came up with what she calls the perfect post-breakup recipe. Her post-breakup regime includes “a prescription for the anti-insomnia medication Ambien, so she could sleep at last, and a five-point recovery plan that included a rigorous exercise program and a few nights of passion with a beautiful stranger.” I recently broke up with a guy that I was dating casually for about six months. I was forced to dump this dude because while I liked so many things about him, he didn’t want a relationship and I did. Plain and simple. It felt like it was the appropriate moment in our relationship — and in my love life — to take a stand against all illegitimate dating situations. I’ve done enough ambiguous dating/hooking up already. I’m going for all or nothing now. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: I Can’t Get Over The Friend Who Dumped Me

I still don’t know why June* stopped talking to me.

We had been friends for over 10 years when she suddenly stopped answering my emails and calls. We hadn’t argued. She was OK. She simply disappeared from my life, and now five years later, I’m still obsessed with why. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “Should I Wait Around For My Crush To Get Over Her Ex?”

I’m a lesbian and there’s a girl I’ve been hanging out with on a daily basis for a while now whom I’m interested in. Until this summer, we were both in relationships, but at the beginning of this school year, upon finding out I was single, she immediately said, “We should date!” Since then, I’ve been getting really mixed signals from her (we’ve drunkenly made out twice, and kissed a few times sober, but with a lot of platonic hanging out in between). She’s told me that she’s conflicted and although she really likes me, she doesn’t want to hurt me because she isn’t over her ex. Honestly, I had expected this, and told her that if she needs some more time, I’d wait (to which I got no real response). I’m more into her than I’ve ever been into anyone in my life, so I’m willing to wait, but I feel sort of stupid and it bothers me that I’ve turned down other offers in the meantime. She told me before that it took her almost a year to get over her last ex, so I don’t know if I want to wait THAT long, but if I lose my chance with her, I know that’s a regret I’ll carry around for a long time. What should I do? — Tired of Waiting

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend Calls In Bomb Threat On Plane Carrying Man To His Wedding

There are crazy exes and there are cuh-ra-zy exes. The woman who called in a bomb threat on an airplane carrying her ex-boyfriend to his wedding takes the cake. Canadian police said they received a report of a man carrying a bomb on a flight from Toronto to Karachi, Pakistan, where the man planned to get hitched. After an emergency landing in Stockholm, Sweden, 273 passengers were evacuated from the plane (seriously, this is my worst nightmare) and a SWAT team arrested the groom. No bombs were found on the plane, of course, and the ex-girlfriend admitted to authorities she was just trying to ruin his big day. Clearly, this bitch has never heard of getting wasted and showing up to the nuptials unannounced. Congratulations, lady: In the Crazy Ex Olympics, you would win! [Daily Mail UK] Keep reading »
