I'll just be over here, swooning.

And I thought it would be a simple answer. Like all relationships, it should be built upon a foundation of outstanding sex.

Jesus Christ.

If I am parsing this correctly, he has not yet asked her out, right? He's just thinking about it. So possibly he should ask her out first to see if she even likes him before building her a trash-zeppelin of interfaith grokking. Just in case she thinks he smells weird and wouldn't date him even if he were Cyprian, Bishop of Carthage.

"Woman. Your heart throbs in sympathy with mine own. Here, I have created for you a kitchenette wrested out of non-being by the act of hope. Step inside my air-barge of awareness and we shall reign over a new creation from dozens of feet above the ground, you and I."

"I'm actually seeing someone."

"Ohmigod, Carol, I'm so sorry. Fuck. Fuck. I knew I left something off my Things To Do Before Carol And I Ascend To The Temporal Skies As Swan Emperors checklist. FUCK. Well. Okay. I guess – call me if things don't work out."

(that said this was totally gorgeous and also I could have really used this advice about 8 years ago)

@melis I have to disagree with you there. Silver chairs, floating pink curtains and ethereal spinet first, ask questions later. Because who could resist them? Have lures at the ready.

Well Mr. Ford, I take back what I said earlier. You can denigrate TLC all you want. That was great.

Wonderful but also: Would you like to know the secret ingredient that enabled me to get married to a theist (a CATHOLIC no less)? The key is: Post-modernism.
