@Olivia2.0 I didn't get the impression she was religious just because she went to religious institutions. The fact that her mother does everything for her? That's just creepy.
One thousand thumbs up to all of this.
@jfruh That is a great point. The fact that it's "not real" to him doesn't mean it's not real to those ladies. He's actively fucking with people's heads out there, and that's just gross.
@werewolfbarmitzvah Seriously! Cats are incredibly hard to photograph. I could *never* get a shot that good.
@smartastic Yes! That struck me as kind of odd. I suspect Special Snowflake Syndrome.
@82442152@twitter Yes, that was my read on it, too. He said he didn't want to be a douche, meaning he doesn't want to come out and say "I'm not that into you" but he doesn't realize that by not being direct he IS being a douche. He likes your brain, he gets something out of the contact, but he's really not into you romantically.
Someone else will be! Let this one go.
I find the LW's description of him as being "quite a player" and sleeping with tons of girls to be at odds with his initial anxiety about meeting for coffee. Dude is all over the place and squirrelly as heck. I agree with Polly that he's got at least one regular girlfriend (if not more than one) who already think he's deeply committed to them.
No matter what the guy's damage is, Polly's advice here is really, really great.
@queenofbithynia Oh god yes. That made me itchy.
Well her youngest sister died, (which is probably why she needs the grieving chapter mentioned in the first answer) so: not so great!
@Mr. B At first there are all sorts of eye-rolly things going on with that show (Norman is in High School! Dealing with cute girls and being the new kid! And it's set in the present day!) but Vera Farmiga is absolutely amazing and SO deserves the Emmy nod, especially for the last two episodes of the season.
