Since you asked - Can this be real ?

I can't help but read the lame-o advice column Since you asked in

It is just too earnest to be a parody. This week some lamer is distraught that their beighbou dumped them for a new buddy and Cary Tennis gives a hilariously long winded answer. Except he's serious

Dear Cary,

My neighbor and I were inseparable friends. We had morning coffee about three times a week. We had intimate, confidential conversations. We visited every day in our front yards.

Things were going along fine until I got a job. I would be getting ready for work, and I would see her strolling up the street for regular morning coffee with another neighbor. The hurt came when I realized that my neighbor had totally dumped me and had moved on to this other friend. When I was at home, she no longer had the time of day for me. Everything now was about her new friend. I felt dumped and betrayed. I am having a hard time with this, as she lives next door to me. I can't get it out of my mind. I have cried a lot of tears over the loss of this friendship. Our houses are close together and I see her often in the course of a week.

I want to move on, but it is so hard having the person who betrayed my friendship living right next door.

What advice can you give me?

Spurned Neighbor
