Dear Todd Parker,

I've exhausted all of my other avenues for advice. As much as I hate the idea of asking a stranger for help, maybe you can bring a new perspective to my situation. I work for a small company that is in the process of becoming much larger; they're bringing in a lot of new people to help manage the increasing workload.

My problem is simple enough: my new boss is driving me crazy.

Dear Todd Parker, (12/03/14)

I was in a long-term relationship with a guy for a number of years. For a long time, I thought he was the one, but I gradually realized that he and I were moving in different directions and we had become incompatible in a lot of ways. So about a year ago, we broke it off amicably. Well, mostly amicably anyway. The goal was to remain friends. It wasn't easy, but I still cared about the guy, so I did my best. We didn't see a lot of each other, but it was always pleasant enough when we did.

Last week, he called me up out of the blue we hadn't spoken in a couple of months and left a message on my voicemail asking if I would like to go out to dinner with himand his new girlfriend. He told me that it was really important to him that I meet her. He also said that meeting her would be good for me and help me 'gain closure' on our relationship. It turns out that in his eyes, our mutual breakup was in fact him breaking up with me and he wanted to help me 'move on.'
