    Writing a Dear Jane letter.

    Ok, I just had to write one of these things and its never easy, how do you tell some one that you no longer want to hang with them and basically have no time for them. I already told this person in person but she didnít get it the first time. So I tried to be very detailed in my writing and walking her step by step out the door.


    What I did was first did the typical, its not you its me and then did the your better without me thing. Ya know the same old song and dance, I think I did ok, but what would you write. Just in case I need to expand.

    Re: Writing a Dear Jane letter.

    Someone has a stalker!

    If you told her in person, and she "didn't get it" I'm betting the letter might not work either. Sorry dude. How explicit were you in your conversation/letter? Don't use euphamisims or innuendo. Just flat out say what you said above.

    Here's keeping my fingers crossed for ya. If that doesn't work I'll buy you a drink at Lost Bar sometime!

    Re: Writing a Dear Jane letter.

    Exactly! Dont say anything like "its just not the right time" because that might give her the false hope that maybe in the future things will be different.

    I'm anti Dear ______ letters but if you tried the face to face route and it didnt work then I guess an actual letter is ok.

    LOL!!! I hate the Dear ____ leters as well. But the face to face did nothing for her.
    And I think Hyper is dead on.

    I sure could use some Lost Bar fun....or was that the thing that got me in trouble in the first place? hmmm I love trouble.

    Dear ____


    How are you? I am fine.

    Enough chit-chat. Let's get down to buisness.

    I just can't stand you anymore. Don't believe me? Today I vomited seven times due to the memory of kissing you... make that eight... nine.

    It's not me, it is so totaly you. You are a freak and not in a good way. I knew I should have been suspicious when your mom (who is a good deal hotter than you are) said she would pay me $100 a week not to break up with you, that she was tired of seeing you in their house every day.

    Trust me, this is the best thing for me. Not for you, the best thing for you would be to visit a freakin dentist and perhaps look the word "jog" up, but I need this. I can't spend every night showering the filth I accumulated from you off.

    Why do you think I gave you roses? It wasn't to try to get you in bed... 10 vomits now... It was to get rid if that smell. You smell like a pickle wrapped up in rancid bacon and left to ripen in the anus of a dead monkey for a month. ...11 vomits.

    I'm sure that a special someone may come along, and I want to be ready for her. Every moment I spend with you is like another nail in my coffin.

    Regards,
    ______________

    T-Gel does it again!

    Mr. D, I'd pay to see the look on someones face if you gave them that letter! I love it. Then again, I'm just sick that way.

    TJL: You are a brilliant writer.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    Re: Writing a Dear Jane letter.

    Dude, if she didn't get it face-to-face, then there's something you did that gave her the impression that it isn't over or there might be a chance. Perhaps a letter isn't going to cut it (but T-Gel's might work...), but if she can't handle it in person, when she ask for clarification, I think the letter moved down on the list.

    But, in contradiction, I wouldn't recommend talking to her in person. Every moment you are with her, every action you take can be misinterpreted.

    Now as I think this out--go with the letter.

    And don't try the cliches either. The "It's not you, it's me" kinda stuff has been played to death and she'll be immune. Go with the honesty thing. Don't use put-downs (you smell funny!) or positives (you are so pretty, you'll find someone, soon!). Just say, "I'm looking at the two of us, and I don't see the future you are seeing. This isn't going to work in a manner I thought it would."

    Lastly, don't apologize for anything. otherwise, it's an admission of guilt. Use lotsa "I" sentences and stuff you know about you. Avoid adverbs like, "sorta' 'kinda''maybe'.

    If you want us in the Writer's Club to proof it, let us know. We're a pretty creative lot.

    Re: Writing a Dear Jane letter.

    ***UPDATE***


    PG13



    Ok, this is the weirdest thing ever, I sent her my letter and not the beautiful letter as written by T-Gel, and I get this back, and I quote.

    "its cool with me if you just want to hang and talk if you still want to kiss and hug is cool too! as for the (censored) (edited for TMI) some day you want to with no strings im open to it.. its not using if we both want to..."


    OK Im cool and all but I swear I didnt know I had that effect on the ladies well... maybe just a little but this is off the hizhook!
    Im so not going to go there with her, I can just see it turning Fatal Attraction. Eeeeek ! I dont need this in my life...

    besides Im not that kinda boy...
