Seriously. My advice is to light that dude on fire, and THEN do all the good stuff Polly said.
I miss the old comments here that were an interesting discussion with LW1. What happened to those?
@franceschances I'm glad you like that part, but that's the worst part for me. When I realize what a fool I dated, and how foolish I seemed to others, the nausea of self-recognition is overwhelming. At least for a couple of years. I can laugh about my bad college and early-twenties choices now.
Love this. Familiar in its distance and heart-rending.
I love you, Ask Polly. These are the best pep talks.
@themegnapkin You are correct. Draper, at least, would not refer to his children he ignores as "the little royals" or write out his justifications for cheating to an advice column. He would just publish it in the paper.
Ugh, I also watch too much Mad Men.
LW #1 imagines he is Don Draper, is probably actually Pete Campbell.
This. A thousand times this.
Blue jays should have been higher up on the list. Blue jays are assholes.
