On What Should We Call People Who Enjoy A Drink?

"Alcohol dependent" was what I called myself (I've since given up the drink). But I think "drinker" works just as well.

On Ask Polly: My Mom Keeps Guilting Me About Visiting For Christmas!

@2189378665@twitter Having good boundaries is the key to successful family interactions. I've definitely de-camped to a hotel on past visits with my SUPER XTIAN parents.

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

@913372052@twitter I get where you are coming from, but it's also totally possible to have AWESOME, UNDENIABLE physical chemistry with someone who is wrong for you in every way. It can't just be the only thing, and often I think it's misleading.

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

Wow this column really hit me in the soft parts. Amazing stuff!

Also: why WHY do men want to molest me when I'm doing the dishes? PLEASE STOP.

On Ask Polly: My Life Is A Beige Pointless Hellscape!

LW: Clearly from your self-description, you are depressed. Do whatever it takes to get un-depressed. Polly's advice is AWESOME, and I will only add to that: if you are a drinking person, consider stopping for a bit. Alcohol is NOT the friend of the depressed person.

Also: if you have millions of little projects/hobbies and none of them seem to ever get done, try prioritizing just the one or two most important ones. I find that multiplying/diversifying my focus means I can never succeed (or fail!) at any one of those projects, thus no forward motion or definitive action results. If I can concentrate on just one or two things, tho, I can really create something that has worth to me. And I happen to REALLY like that feeling.

On Ask Polly: If I Dump My Needy Girlfriend, I'm Afraid I'll Ruin Her Life!

@RDM Mainly due to the obvious, overweening narcissism.

On Scott Walker Goes Shooting For The Presidency

Abe, do you know if his enthusiasm for Harleys pre-dates 2013? That also seems SOOOOO put-on to me.
