    Words and Phrases to be BANNED from Love Letters

    There are words/phrases that just set my teeth on edge.  Let's all list our pet peeves here so LW's will be forewarned! I'll start:

    Fast forward - duh, we know that time passes
    Spot on/right on/nailed it - yeah, we get it
    HJNTIY - we saw the movie

    Who else has some?

    I don't think ANY words or phrases should be banned, including sexually explicit terms.

    Re: Words and Phrases to be BANNED from Love Letters

    Let's NOT ban "polyamoury," despite what some may think.  OK, I realise this is a concept introduced by the Church of All Worlds, a rather flaky organisation started by some fans of Ray Bradbury's "Stranger in a Strange Land" who say they picked up this concept from his book and, along with several other precepts, started a Pagan Church based thereon.  (Bradbury himself was none too thrilled, I've heard.)  It's not quite swinging (you tend to keep to a select group of lovers who are all on board with the concept, as opposed to different partners as often as possible), but polyamourists are also not circus freaks and would not thank you for labelling them as such.  (Probably neither would swingers, come to think of it.)

    Re: Words and Phrases to be BANNED from Love Letters

    This should be banned for all advice-seeking letters everywhere, on the web, in print, etc: "I am married to/dating a "wonderful" guy/girl, but.....he/she is a" [fill in the blank, usually something really bizarre.]

    Every time I read a letter like this, I wonder what the definition of wonderful is if a pedophile/chronic nose picker/neanderthal/cheater still meets it.

    agree w ashmama.  Don't tell me how awesome someone is and then tell me how dreadful s/he is.  It just confuses me.

    "I never thought I would be writing to LL..."

    especially when followed by something like 

    ..."because I am married, successful, a superhero, (or some other class of people with no problems)"

    Grilled Cheese

    It's way over-used and most don't even use it in the proper context.

    Speaking of 'Grilled Cheese,'......

    "He told me it's the best grilled cheese he's ever had."

    What the heck do you think he's going to tell you?!?

    Words and Phrases to be BANNED from Love Letters

    I've just read Meredith's explanation of how and why she developed the euphemisms grilled cheese and grilled cheese sandwiches.  In that same explanation, she uses the words sex and sexuality.  If it's OK to use sex and sexuality, why do we need the euphemisms?  She also writes, "I love a good euphemism - don't you?"  NO!  I can't stand them.  My position is "Tell it Like it is."

    I think cuddle puddles themselves should be banned - not just the words.
