Ask Toni: The Modern Custody Battle


I dated a girl for 10 months and eventually lost interest because I felt we were better off as friends.  We shared a lot of the same interests and hobbies, and at one point, she even invited me to join her cycling group. 

After our split, she asked that I be dropped.  Everyone agreed and now I don’t have anyone to ride with.  Can’t we all just get along?

Reality check, you lost the custody battle.  No sharing friends on weekends.  Just the thought of people in way-too-tight matching outfits, chafing their midsections makes me ill. 

Put the cleat on the other foot, how would you feel if you were dumped, and she was prancing around in a leotard like nothing happened? What if she added a new beau to the crew?  Swallow the rejection and join a gym.  The weather is always sunny and 68 degrees.
