Dear Kelly,

Any tips for getting over a breakup?


Dear Cameron,

Thank you for coming to me with this question. For those of you reading who are not Cameron, Cameron reached out to me via Instagram DM. Obviously this question suited itself well to the brevity of an Instagram DM, as heartache is universal and doesn’t need much explaining.

But for those of you with more complicated issues — like, say, maybe you want to explain a dynamic you have with a neighbor’s cat and need my advice on whether or not it is normal, or maybe you need to figure out how to tell a friend that everyone knows the majority of his conversational jokes are stolen from Mitch Hedberg’s 1999 episode of Comedy Central Presents — you may email me: I’m here to help. Now, back to Cameron.

I’m sorry you’re going through a breakup, Cameron. That blows. You have my sympathies and, on the occasion that I am one day able to grant unlimited wishes both in person and via the internet, one future wish (terms and conditions will apply).
