Your Problems Solved

"My girlfriend wants to move to another country where there are more job opportunities but a much higher crime rate. I’m terrified of going, as I don’t think I’d ever fit in and feel safe walking the streets (which I love to do), but there’s no future where we live now, and I don’t think I’d ever make enough money to even move out of my parents’ house. What should I do?"
—Awl pal Julie Klausner's advice column is pretty much what you'd expect, which is to say hysterical.

Harrison Ford in Working Girl, a;dlkfasdjfa;lsdgjf…

I dunno, I'm old school. I'd say William Powell in The Thin Man.

Is it Brazil?!? Because I'm planning to move to Brazil to be with my girlfriend, and everyone around here is all up upons, like i'm moving to Iran or something

"Maybe you could light her and yourself on fire in public? Then I’d have to watch one less “man gets people to break out into a dumb song in a park” viral video, and you’d both be dead."

It's nice to know there are still people in this world who can write inspiring prose.

Wow I was just there and reading that and closed the tab and it brought me back to the first tab which was The Awl and the tease for this post was at the top! My life is crazy!

"But yeah—not a lot of people know how to “court” anymore, sorry. It’s an unfortunate side effect of the equal-rights movement and the mass confusion it caused among men who had no complimentary ideology to feminism…"

Scene: a park

Ideology walking by, notices feminism sitting on a bench, reading.

Ideology: My, you look lovely today.

Feminism ignores ideology, holding the book in her hands slightly higher so that he won't see her reddening cheeks.

The End.

"Attention-whore soon-to-be-fiancee" made me cackle with such wicked joy I expect to be sent home soon for mental health reasons.

I need to get some problems so I can read Julie Klausner's answers to them.

I loved the column and laughed a lot! The comments, however, made me scared and sad. I forget that not every place is as nice as this place.
