On Ask Polly: I'm 33 And Single. What Am I Doing Wrong?

@calamity I. Am. You. That book is my bible in some ways, but the kids thing is the gaping void that keeps me from buying in 100%.

On Ask Polly: I Am Severely Chafed By My Gentle, Compassionate Boyfriend

@Xenu01 Yeah, she seems to think she deserves this guy as...penance? or something? for her past dalliances with Bad Boys. Like this is just what she deserves and it's the only alternative to abuse, and she assumes she just doesn't get it because she doesn't love herself enough. It's just a different form of the abused mindset of taking the blame.

On Ask Polly: I Am Severely Chafed By My Gentle, Compassionate Boyfriend

@Xenu01 YES! I came down here to see if I was the only one thinking, wait, what? She's telling the LW to settle for someone who thoroughly turns her off after 5 months? Polly consistently nails it, but this one makes me uneasy. I just don't see anything in him that recommends him as a partner to this particular LW.

On Advice Is Futile

@Jane Donuts So true. That is exactly why I like flipping a coin. Seeing a choice made for me--even if I don't go with it in the end-- recalibrates my gut reaction to RELIEF! or AAH! NO! rather than sifting through the endless nuances of potential outcomes. Aaaand after typing this out I'm going to take my own advice and apply it to my current existential crisis. ["something about myself"]
