Testing out Boyfriends

September 26, 1995
Dear Bethy,

Well, I said I'd wait until someone asked me out to dump Patrick. Here's my chance. This guy named Ronald asked me out today. Actually, Mina asked me out FOR him, but that's okay. I'm gonna say yes. I'm just nervous about dumping Patrick. I at least want to see him Friday without dumping him. If something great happens I'll dump Ronald. If not I'll dump Patrick. OH BOY my life is confusing!! Oh well. I guess

I have to see what kind of relationship I'm looking at with Ronald. If it's a shy conversation thing like at elementary school. Or if its talk, call each other, etc. like lots of people at my new school. That'll help me figure this all out!

Here is a try at a goodbye letter to Patrick:

Dear Patrick,
I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but I don't really think its really going to work out for us to be in totally separate schools and totally separate lives and still go out. I'm really sorry. I hope we can still be friends. See you at Youth Group!
Peace and Love,

How does that sound?? Too cheesy?? Oh well. I'll have to think about it.

Poor Patrick. I'm sure he'll be devastated. IF he knows we are actually still together. Probably not. And lucky Ronald! He sure is getting a super-great girlfriend. Has anyone ever been less enthusiastic about a new boyfriend? "Uh, I guess I'll date Ronald until I see what he has to offer. If its better than what I'm getting from Patrick, great. If not, that's cool. I have a back up."

My superior morality is to be admired. As is my note-writing and conflict-avoiding abilities.


There's not much else to say here...
