THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik, I just wanted to thank you for your advice. I wanted to be with a guy that I had been going back and forth with between friends and FWB for a while. I just couldn’t let go because I always casually dated and never committed but felt like he was special. You told me not to push it and to move on. I did exactly that and stayed friends with him. Turns out seeing me move on was what he needed to realize he wanted the same thing. We’ve been together for a few months now and I’ve never been happier. It’s long distance now thanks to school (which goes against everything I use to believe) but I realized that it’s worth it and it works as long as you want it bad enough. Taking your advice was the best thing I could’ve done and I hope that you and Shayne work out because I aspire to have a relationship as great as yours.

My relationship is not great. I’m working as hard as I can to salvage. For some reason my advice to myself doesn’t work on Shayne, she has super powers I cannot crack.- nik
