She Mail: Girl Dumped Boyfriend After Thanksgiving
Julie Fisk is here to help. If you’ve need advice or want us to hash out a problem on the air for you, let Julie share some of her wisdom.
I’ve been wanting to break up with my boyfriend for a while now but haven’t had the heart, especially since we spent Thanksgiving with his family out of state – something that had been planned for months.
But now that the holiday is over, I dropped the bomb Sunday and told him I wanted to see other people. He was totally outraged and asked why I’d allow him to introduce me to his entire family if I was just going to dump him anyway. I explained that I didn’t think it was right to break up right before the holidays. I tried to do the right thing but he made me feel really bad about it.
Did I screw up or was I right to wait until after Turkey Day?

Dear Turkey Day Dumper,
Sorry Turkey Day Dumper but I think your ex-boyfriend is right. You should have said something BEFORE the trip. It’s important to be honest with yourself and your significant other, ESPECIALLY if the thrill is gone. Someone is going to get hurt no matter what by that point, so it’s better to back out gracefully before anyone else (like his family) gets involved. The good news is that you’ve already gotten the hard part out of the way. You should send him a nice apology note and then both of you can get on with your lives.
