WKND FEEDBACK

Heartbreakers wear skirts too

March 11, 2004

Heartbreakers come in both sexes ("To Avoid the Broken Heart, Simply Avoid the Heartbreaker," by Samantha Bonar, March 4). What would you call a woman who becomes, over the period of two months, increasingly intimate while the hapless "boyfriend" respects her wishes to "go slowly" and not press these intimate encounters to the point of going upstairs to her bedroom?

And, once the happy couple finally do decide to head upstairs, what would you call a woman who takes her "boyfriend" to the brink of half-clothed excitement and says, "I'm sorry; I'm not ready yet," leaving the "boyfriend" to put on a happy face and reassure her that "he could wait as long as she needs to," only to, five days later, be dismissed, told, "I just don't feel the same here. There's a disproportionality of feeling"?

You and Dorothy Parker and women, generally, do not exclusively own the doormat concession.
