It’s Friday and Amelia Hamilton is here to answer all your questions on lying men, vintage cars and the best time to make amends.
I’m sensing my karma’s knocking. When is it too late to say, “sorry I was a wasteful, childish twit and I hope you’re doing great?”
It’s never too late to try. Get in touch and tell that person you’re sorry — extend the olive branch. What could it hurt?
Will you come help me work on my motorcycles?
I’m more of a vintage car girl but, even at that, I mostly just look at and drive them. I don’t really need the grease under my nails, you know? What I can offer is to make beer and snacks to keep you going while you work on it yourself. Take it or leave it.
How do you respond to a charming, cute guy who is so used to lying he doesn’t realize he’s contradicted himself three times in one minute?
Call him on it, gently or overtly. Gently would mean statements like “Oh, really? I thought you said X?” Overtly would mean like “Dude. You JUST said X. Get your act together.” Make sure he knows he’s caught, and walk away. Nobody is cute enough to deal with that, but maybe he’ll be a little more truthful with the next girl.
