“Scared He’ll Be a Schlub” Responds

It’s time again for “Dear Wendy Updates”, a feature where people I have given advice to in the past will let us know if they have followed the advice and how they are doing now. Today we hear from “Afraid He Will Be a Celeb” that her boyfriend did not like the paisley shirt she bought him to wear to her girlfriend’s “electro-hippie psychedelic chic” wedding. They continued to provoke big arguments “that,” she wrote, “in his mind, they are all my fault because I bought the offending shirt.” She continued:

“It’s not even about the shirt anymore, but about the basic issues in our relationship that I think can be navigated in the long run. The short term problem is the fast approaching wedding and the fact that he ran out of time to find a garment. I give it an 80% chance of missing the window. He will attend this wedding looks like a celeb, i will be so upset that not only will the shit hit the fan again, but he will also squirt. Our mutual stubbornness, and the odds I gave him is a symbol of my bubbling resentment that he places the blame on the “shirt that launched” a thousand ships and broke the camel’s back. ” What should I do?”

I contacted her recently and asked if he ever found anything to wear to the wedding and how they are doing today. Its update:

Yes, yes, he did find something to wear, and that’s a story in itself. I can update: we’re still together … should I include the part where I took myself to Iceland for my birthday, slept with someone else – we’re half open – I intentionally came back to say goodbye permanently, then I went to Arizona for a trip to San Pedro where I was sure the mescaline Tell me to finish it but instead I got the message that my friend is an idiot, and will always be an idiot, but that at its core is good for me and that I, too, am an idiot? Jokingly, it would be too long, but you get the idea.

I understood the idea and I want to hear more.

If you’re someone I’ve given advice to before, I’d love to hear from you too. Email me at wendy@dearwendy.com with a link to the original post, and let me know if you followed the advice and how are you now.
