All that "click" means is that there is something in your personalities that...effervesces, that reacts strongly together, that you meet each others' needs in some strong way. I've definitely had situations where the... [more]

Aging isn't the same as disability, even though there are overlaps in experience. I know younger people with disabilities and, for the most part, their conditions are relatively stable and fairly predictable - a decent and well-run society could... [more]

I'll echo the "don't". I'm sort of troubled by the way "diverse" seems to be code for "people of color" and "poor people" in your question, and the way those things translate into "likely to rob me with... [more]

Oh my god, baijiu. I don't want it to have a western equivalent, because then I might once again face social pressure to drink it, and that stuff will knock you back. As much as I've often, often wished I was in a position to go back to work... [more]

I'd suggest making sure that your dates are dates - that they're not pick-ups or hook-ups, that is. When you meet a new person at a bar/party/etc, set another time to meet - don't just trail along with him. If you're using OkCupid or similar,... [more]

I also really like Fireside apples, introduced by the University of Minnesota in 1943. I have University of Minnesota headcannon where we are a stalwart, sincere, uptight and resolutely non-commercial land-grant institution dedicated to things... [more]

Something about "I didn't look very good before and he turned me down; now I am thinner and dress better and he's attracted" doesn't sound very good to me, at least not for a serious relationship - maybe for something casual. It's not... [more]

I have avoided the SweeTango because it's called the SweeTango. I can deal with buying something called "Honeycrisp" but SweeTango is just embarrassing. Although the apple before the SweeTango was the "Zestar", which sounds like... [more]

Also, as far as the argument given above that this performance is for politically unsophisticated white people who are unlikely to care - I have done a very stupid thing where this logic was in my head. Well, not that logic precisely, but definitely... [more]

You know, if you want to support your mother in being healthy, you might want to look at the stress in her life - if someone is miserable at work, frantic about bills, in a lousy relationship or simply bearing the entire weight of taking care of the... [more]

Oh, don't go back to school! You'll spend a lot of money, spend years out of the labor market and run up a lot of debt with no guarantee of a job. (Unless you just don't have a BA, in which case, yes, get a BA) There are lots of menial jobs that... [more]

The thing is - as I have learned - people start to think that you hate them if you never, ever go to parties with your partner, because even when your partner says that you hate parties they assume that you really just don't like them. They also... [more]

I would go with gently used shoes on Ebay or via a consignment store. I know that squicks some people, but if you seek out reliable sellers and make sure there are lots of pictures, you can do quite well. I've bought a couple of unsuitable pairs... [more]

You know, now that I think about it, it might be useful to consider why one gets visibly checked out (as opposed to discreetly). I've had very, very few experiences with this, which I used to read as meaning that I was ugly, and I used to feel... [more]

I work at a large university. The way to get past the HR system here (except, alas, for the apparently-eternal hiring freeze) is to make sure that your resume matches the job requirements. Someone can forward his or her resume to me,... [more]

The one thing that puzzles me a little bit in this article is the way that it conflates pre-existing ethical/philosophical beliefs with other "mistaken" approaches. It seems like he is saying that having any set of pre-existing... [more]

In a worst-case scenario, if I encountered a fellow who told me that he "couldn't tell me what he did", I might assume that he was actually a bit off...either lying to seem mysterious or actually mentally ill. Failing that, I'd... [more]

I add that for most people I know, intentionally and systematically reading someone else's old journals (unless permission had been given) would be a dealbreaker.... [more]

I want to add a couple of things: 1. "The benefit of the doubt" - there's no real reason to give people the benefit of the doubt when they're saying racist, misogynist stuff, unless you have a strong personal reason to do so. (Ie, it's... [more]
