I love all y'all. I do. But can we please stop with the vaguely anti-R&B, anti-hip-hop qualifiers? Because as much as you're saying "I dig this and I wouldn't usually," that kind of statement has a tinge of "this genre is... [more]

As for the other bit about me finding her attractive, I'm not entirely sure I follow; don't people sometimes ask each other out solely based on person A finding person B attractive in some way? I'm going to assume that not everyone who dates is... [more]

This is a great post! It reminds me of a hilarious misinterpretation that some friends and I made when we were working in Shanghai and none of us had much mandarin. We all arrived via Hongqiao airport, of course, and one of us (armed with a... [more]

(I just want to point out that to me, as someone who dates any ol' gender at all, the issue here is monogamy as much as it is bisexuality - there are many bisexuals in monogamous relationships. If you want to support your girlfriend in... [more]

I find it incredibly depressing that the split turns out to be the result of the male half of the couple having an affair. (One assumes with a younger woman.) I had hoped that it was just, you know, a divorce, not a "famous dude can't... [more]

I think it will become clear fairly quickly if this is going to work or not - give it a few more months. I once broke up with a smart, non-intellectual person because we didn't have enough in common...and it was exactly that. We didn't... [more]

Yeah, basically this is people leveraging racism and misogyny (seriously, what possible non-misogynist rationale is there for battered-woman humor?) to make money and get more famous. Obviously, people know this stuff is racist, they know it's... [more]

And I also really hate the electronic leash thing - the idea that I am socially obligated to respond to every text like it's some kind of drop-dead emergency even if it's just "oooh, did you see the pretty sunset?" Not to mention the idea... [more]

....and guess what gender and race good old S. Asma belongs to? And his general physiognomy? Short, swarthy and chubby or blond, blue-eyed and thin? And his social class? Is he one of the few proles teaching at Columbia? A short look at Wikipedia... [more]

The only problem I have with people saying they're vegetarian when they're not is that it gives people the impression that they can slip pork stock into my soup because they have learned that vegetarian means "does not eat large chunks of... [more]

You know, I bet a lot of us know women (or guys) who have done a little porn. I know I know a reasonable number of people who have done sex work, ranging from a fairly trivial "I did a little go-go dancing at a club when I was 20"... [more]

I've never, never understood why helmet laws were such an issue. I cycle a fair amount (although that's gone down a bit since I got a motorcycle), grew up where helmets were mandatory until the age of 18 and wearing one just seems normal. The... [more]

I read the Hugo "planning to murder his ex" piece when it was live. This is what I remember: That he decided that he and his girlfriend would both be better off dead - both were depressed and messed up and drunks, if I remember... [more]

I always wondered how much of the mockery actually had to do with his ethnicity, actually. I mean, I've watched a lot of these horrible, horrible situations play out on the internet and it seems like the victim is very often someone who is already... [more]

Okay, thirties-ish lower income person here. Not only is it always understood that folks pay for their own food at parties like this one, but I would be aghast if one of my friends felt she had to pay several hundred dollars to take all of us... [more]

Self-care is important, yo. If you're already giving a lot in this relationship and you need some time to rest, don't go to the party. Depending on your relationship with her, either explain the situation and apologize or just sick out. I've been... [more]

Hold up, Code Monkey! Okay, here is the scoop, from someone who is probably a lot like you: don't stop talking to her. Don't refer to the love incident, either to apologize or to expand. Just carry on as normal, and invite her on a capital-D... [more]

to be acutely aware that women in general have a much shorter window in which men in general find them attractive But please be aware that this is a political statement - not an inherent truth. It's one of those internet observations that... [more]

Also (sorry to keep going on): you need to have your locus of approval inside yourself. This "sorry for existing and being so annoying and needy on an advice site" thing...oh, I did that too. (And sometimes fall back into it, but it's... [more]
