Lane and her ex-boyfriend Tod became platonic friends after their relationship ended; shortly after he got married to a woman named Trish.
Now, the issue isn’t that he got married to Trish or that he even got married at all; the issue is that all of her friends and everyone around her is married and she can’t seem to hold onto a relationship for longer than six months.
She reached out to The Bert Show because she wanted our help asking Trish to go out to lunch with her, not to hang out and be friends but to pick her brain about what she did to get married.
The Bert Show, however, didn’t think that it was necessary for Lane to meet Trish for lunch and all agreed that it wouldn’t end well.
Cassie encouraged Lane to take a moment and enjoy her singleness “You’re not broken just because you’re single, and just because you’ve had a lot of relationships that haven’t manifested into marriages.”
Timing is a major topic often discussed on The Bert Show, and to Bert, there’s nothing wrong with Lane, she just hasn’t met the right person and it’s just not the right time. “If you want us to text and try to get you this lunch we can do that, I just think all of us in here don’t think it’s really going to accomplish what you want, and frankly I just think that right dude hasn’t come along yet and chances are you’re not doing anything and if you are, you’re not gonna get that from the ex-boyfriend’s new wife.”
So, instead of doing Texting Tutor for Lane, The Bert Show asked her a few questions about herself and encouraged interested listeners to reach out for a date with Lane.
Here’s her email:
Hi Bert Show,
It’s great to hear from you. I love that you guys follow up on listeners who have been on the air with you in the past. It is so nice to know that you and your audience are interested.
So, a relationship with Daniel turned out not to be destiny. We did go out. We actually went out a few times and I thought he was really nice. I really thought he felt the same about me. I was actually really surprised and disappointed when he told me that he didn’t think it was worth our time to keep seeing each other. He said that he just didn’t think we had a lot in common. I mean, I guess he is right. In retrospect, I can see that. However, I did start feeling sorry for myself once again.
Then, something kinda weird happened. About a week after he told me he didn’t want to keep dating me, I got a text from him. He told me that he had a friend that was asking about a girl he had seen on his instagram account. He figured out that his friend was talking about me. He told me he knows this would be strange, but he wanted me to meet them out for a drink because his friend thought I was cute. I almost didn’t go, but figured why not. Well, I ended up having the best time. Daniel ended up leaving after one drink, but his friend and I hung out for several hours. Fast-forward to now and it seems that I may have finally found “the one” for me. I really like him, and he seems to really like me. Who knows where this will all end up, but for now, I’m feeling pretty darn optimistic.
Anyhow, hope you all are well!
