Dear Wendy: “Should I Reach Out To The Friend I Dumped?”

I am somewhat of a loner, so I really value the few friendships that I do have. A year ago at this time, I had three good girlfriends: Kay, Sid and Jan. Kay and I are both single, Sid and Jan are both married. I have always known that Sid is a somewhat unstable person, but last winter she did something inexcusable. She took our friend Jan out for a night on the town, they both got drunk, and Sid offered her up to some military men on leave, telling them “her husband cheated on her, she needs to get laid” (not true, her husband was on a business trip). She willingly let a group of unknown, potentially violent men abduct Jan into their vehicle. Jan was seriously disoriented, frightened, and only got away by faking that she had to pee and running for it out the side their car. She got in touch with me the next day, telling me not to go out with Sid on my own ever. I completely sided with Jan, was disgusted by the danger that Sid put her in, and cut off contact her.

Girl Talk: Why Did She Have To Marry Him?

When I got married, one of my oldest friends wrote on her card, “I am so glad you married someone so cool!” When she got married a year later, luckily I felt the same way. I know we’ll be friends for a long time, because I think she married someone that brings out the best in her, and she’s making happy life choices as a result.

I wish all of my friends fell into this category. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy: “Should I Befriend My Ex-Boyfriend’s New Girlfriend?”

One of my first really serious adult relationships happened when I was in my early- to mid-20s. We ended things after about three years, two of which we spent living together, and although our breakup was extremely heart-wrenching and hurtful, over the years we have been able to develop a much stronger relationship as friends. When he started dating his current girlfriend last summer, I wasn’t surprised when I didn’t hear from him as much (previously we had been hanging out an average of twice a week, sometimes more) because sometimes that’s just how things go when you meet someone new. But as the six month mark passed and my conversations with him were few and far between, I began to wonder what the deal was. He confided in me that his girlfriend had trust issues — MAJOR ones. (She was checking his browsing history on his computer, she made him de-friend me on Facebook, and every time he brought up my name or made an attempt to hang out with me, an argument would ensue.) They’ve been dating a year now and I’ve still never met her. The last time I talked to him — we’ve managed to see each other a handful of times since he started dating his girlfriend — he mentioned that he is thinking of proposing. I would like for his girlfriend to get the chance to know me. Additionally, I know my ex misses our friendship and still cares about me deeply, enough so that he has always stuck up for me and made sure she understood that her jealousy and trust issues were HERS, and not caused by anything I did. Should I make an attempt to befriend his girlfriend so that she becomes more comfortable with me? — The Ex
