Rather than just give dating and relationship advice, I thought my readers might like to know what happens to couples after they receive advice from Miss A. So here is a letter I received from someone who asked Miss A. I will do more of these as they come in.
Dear Miss A,
You recently responded to my question about “burning bridges”. I really appreciate your advice and wanted to let you know that things went smoothly! I told the guy that things were starting to get serious with someone else and that, although I truly enjoyed spending time with him, I was probably going to end up being in an exclusive relationship with someone else. He appreciated my honesty and said that he wasn’t looking for a relationship, so a friendship is totally do-able. I just became “exclusive” as of this weekend with the guy I wanted to get serious with and we are doing well!
I know you and I have met at functions in the past and share lots of mutual friends, but I don’t know you well. As an outsider, I would like to let you know that I admire what you’ve done. I’ve heard nothing but nice things about you, you give great advice, and carry yourself very well. Keep up the good work!
Also, if you ever need help with events please let me know – I’m always happy to donate time and energy to good causes.
