I agree. Overly analyzing things is a problem.
Maybe he should do on-line dating with the intent of finding a relationship so he does not have to deal with hitting on friends thing that he has a hangup about.
The sad thing is that people who have never been in relationships / had sex are bad at relationships/sex.
@garlicmustardweed A lot of American bashing is done out of weakness. America is the overdog so we pretty much have to take some critism without getting upset. That guy is still a douche.
It is odd to me that the biggest problem with the husband is that he has an asshole friend and was unsupportive one time two years ago.
Proposition 8 was wrong. I voted against it.
It is crazy that that guy lost his job over this though. The majority of the state of California was pro-proposition 8. While not in favor of proposition 8, Obama and the entire democratic establishment was against gay marriage.
Norms against firing people for their political beliefs are a good thing.
@biggestfan online dating might be a good idea. Women tend to get a decent number of responses
@sallysitwell Polly was harsh but LW1 is annoying.
She is sure that she only kissed E in the doorway and was disgusted by it but she also says she "did not remember kissing E AT ALL."
she needs to pick one excuse and stick with it.
Good advice on both of these letters. Especially letter 2. Guys should break up in that situation. Don't mess with the baby making years if the significant other wants to make a baby and you don't.
The advice to lw1 is good as well. Being honest to yourself and others about who you are and what you want is a good idea. No sense attracting people who don't really want the real you.
The need/want distinction is not as clear cut as you make out. You can survive with out a lot of things that you need. Love. Friendship. And sex as well.
@BoatGirl guys stare at hot women all the time. It is a thing.
@HBM this problem is super hard. I honestly have never seen a good solution to this issue.
English, motherfucker, do you speak it?
