What’s your love and relationship problem?
Ask Meredith at Love Letters. Yes, it’s anonymous.
Just one update from a summer letter writer who was trying to figure out sparks. This person could use a breakup pep talk, and a reminder about what spark really is – or isn’t. Hi Meredith, This is an update on the sparks letter in May. The guy and I later reconnected. We became a couple and dated for a few months. I wanted to plan a trip to see my family in another state – an aunt and uncle for a birthday celebration. I paid for the plane tickets, and I thought we were fine. Two days before the trip, he broke up with me. It wasn’t clear the reasons. I tried to get my money back for the plane tickets, I couldn’t get a refund. Due to not getting the refund, I couldn’t go to the trip. The plan was, he was going to get a hotel and pay for the food. He canceled the hotel before we broke up in order to get a refund. I am sad over the breakup. I feel bad for letting my family down. Do you have any advice on how to deal with this breakup? I miss him. – Sparked My thought – this wasn’t about sparks, just about complicated travel plans and bad timing. There’s a lesson here about continuing to date – and about getting refundable tickets.
