Dear Connor,

      I'm so sorry to hear about your breakup. Girls are a pretty terrible species, if I do say so myself. I don't really have any real advice, because I've never cheated or been cheated on. I'm sure you ex-girlfriend is really sorry, at least if she has any kind of conscious. No one feels like they're completely in the right when they cheat on someone they love (I'm just assuming that she loved you and you loved her, sorry if I'm wrong or something). The only thing I know for sure is that you should not feel like you're the one at fault. At all. You did nothing wrong, and it doesn't matter if she just did it for fun; you don't know what happened behind closed doors. Maybe she was promised a relationship by this guy (who sounds like a real wank, by the way) and then he rejected her later. She could be embarrassed that she cheated for virtually nothing, and that would make sense...she lost a (presumably) great relationship for a crappy guy.

      I'm pretty much just speculating, but I hope it did something for you. I'm not great at giving advice or comfort (to quote Chandler Bing, "I'm not great at the advice. Can I interest you in a sarcastic comment?" Do you watch Friends? Best show ever). But hey, I have some juicy aspects of my life too, and they're pretty similar to yours (kind of).

      A little over two weeks ago, my boyfriend of almost two years (it would have been two years this upcoming January 7th) dumped me out of the blue. I still haven't been given a reason other than "this isn't working out" and "I just can't do this anymore", when I thought we were in a good place. Did I mention he also ended it over text? It sucked. Like, really sucked. I cried for three days straight and didn't understand what I did to him to deserve it. Then, less than two weeks after he broke it off, I see a Facebook post from this girl at my school named Delaney. She wrote a message saying that she just wanted to let her family and friends know that she was in a super great new relationship with the love of her life! This love just happened to be my ex-boyfriend. He didn't even wait two weeks before jumping into a new relationship, throwing away nearly two years of our relationship. I've been getting in fights with both Delaney and Kevin (that's my ex-boyfriend, Kevin Long) and then I just started getting some semi-threatening text messages from Delaney's friends, who won't name themselves, but who clearly don't like that I even existed in Kevin's life at all (for two years, might I add...again). So I don't know how long this is going to last, but it's just gonna keep going. I'm not going to back down from defending myself and the strength of our prior relationship to pretty much everyone.

      Sorry that this was also pretty sad. I guess it's just easier to confide in someone who I don't see, you know? It makes it less real and a bit easier to tell you everything. Thanks for indulging in my weird story and for telling me about your life.

      Also, I see that you found my twitter. Thanks for standing up for me.

Sincerely,

Sydney Porter
