Dear Wendy Updates: “Keeping A Secret” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Keeping a Secret,” who got pregnant by her boyfriend of four months while practicing the rhythm method as their only birth control. “I don’t want to burden him with this pain,” she wrote, “and I feel that I’m responsible for the mess I’m in right now since everything leading to it was my decision. I want to act as if this never happened but I’m afraid if this man does end up being the person I marry, I may regret keeping it from him for the rest of my life.” I/we tried to tell her that her boyfriend was as responsible for the pregnancy as she was, and it wasn’t her job to protect him from the “burden.” After the jump, find out whether she decided to tell him or not.

Dear Wendy Updates: “Fixated On The Fantasy” Responds

Dear Wendy Updates: “Not Naturally Selected” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Not Naturally Selected,” who wondered when and how she should tell a new guy in her life about a genetic disorder she suffers from that, among other things, would make it nearly impossible for her to ever carry a baby to term.

Dear Wendy Updates: “Master Debater” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Master Debater” who was concerned that she and her boyfriend didn’t seem to be on the same intellectual level. “I’m a girl who loves intellectual debates and discussions.” She wrote. “When I try to have these discussions or debates with my boyfriend, he ends up just agreeing with me because he rarely understands what I’m even talking about.” She worried about what might happen later in their relationship when they were faced with important decisions and she didn’t have “the benefit of a partner who can think deeply and critically about things.” So, was the difference in intelligence a dealbreaker for her? Or, did she figure out a way to make it work? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: “Wanting More” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Wanting More,” who connected with someone she met online and hoped to start a relationship with him. They had tons in common and she was spending a lot of time with him, but he told her he only wanted to be friends. “I don’t know what to do; do I hang out with him and get over my feelings? Do I give him and our friendship time to see if something develops?” she asked. I told her not to waste her time. “If you were fine being friends with the guy and harbored no hope for a relationship with him, I’d say there’s no harm in continuing to hang out with him. [...] But the truth is that you do have feelings for him and they sure as s**t aren’t going to go away if you keep spending all your time with him.” So, did she take my advice or did she continue seeing him, hoping he’d eventually come around? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: “Newly Single” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates,” a feature where people I’ve given advice to in the past let us know whether they followed the advice and how they’re doing today. After the jump, we hear from “Newly Single,” a bisexual woman who wrote to me a year ago when her engagement ended. She said that before her breakup, she questioned whether she could really be happy with only a man in her future. “Thankfully, I’m not faced with that dilemma any longer, but now I’m faced with a new one,” she wrote. “I’m fairly young (25), and I’ve never really dated anyone besides my ex, regardless of sex. [...] I think that I would feel uncomfortable discussing my dating history with anyone — even if I was dating a guy — but now I’m faced with the fear that I’ll be judged for not having enough experience with girls.” So, how is she doing a year later? Is she dating women now? Still sticking with men? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »

Dear Wendy Updates: “Possible Pushover” Responds

Hey, are you someone I’ve given advice to in the past? Do you have an update on your situation you’re willing to share? Email me at {encode=”dearwendy@thefrisky.com” title=”dearwendy@thefrisky.com”} with a link to the original post, and let me know whether you followed the advice and how you’re doing now.

Her new boyfriend said she shouldn’t let him just have the truck, but more than getting money she deserved, she wanted to put the whole mess behind her and thought putting up a fight would only prolong the ordeal. So, did she give her ex the truck? Did she make him pay for it? Or, did she hang on to it for herself? Find out after the jump. Keep reading »
