    Agree. Sox fan is the most say-nothing-about-you descriptor. Being a passive spectator isn't really that fetching. It's a plus if you add it onto other cool things that you personally do but it should more »

    I thought that too. It sounds like a badly-written character. My protagonist is from Boston, is a Sox fan and she talks like a Sox fan, so let's have her say "wicked" early on to set the tone... more »

    Good advice. more »

    I took that to mean that the guys she met were not open to things getting more serious, that they just wanted to hang out casually indefinitely. more »

    I think Friendly is on to something. If not a job change, maybe a commitment to new activities or something that will help you see yourself in a new way. more »

    Oh come on. People say "wicked" in casual conversation all the time (if you grew up here). It's very different to use it in a letter... more »

    This phrasing made me wonder if it was a fake letter or if the person added these details to disguise their real identity. Like, this is really a person transplanted from Ohio who wants to be anonymou more »

    She's being demanding. What's he's doing is not outlandish. It's OK for two people not to be together all the time to have a good relationship. She should take a few classes or do something constructi more »

    How is it being a doormat to accept that he's got interests that keep him pretty busy? more »

    Even kickball-cornhole leagues can be good. It's regular exercise and a sense of community. Plus, he likes it. It's good for him. Why try to take it away from him? more »

    Don't agree. Why should he have to give up guys' nights entirely? Unreasonable. If he is in team sports, you have to be at games and practice. It's a sign he does make commitments. She sounds codepend more »

    I think he just has activities he likes and wants to keep them. Sports stuff has a regimented schedule and if you're on a team the team is depending on you, so... if the games are on certain nights, t more »

    Agree. Mistake to bring this up as a problem. He enjoys these nights. Maybe she should develop interests of her own on those nights and she won't miss him so much. BCAE has great classes in fun stuff more »

    Is this about missing him or keeping score/count of how much time you have vs. them. Rather than complaining and turning something he enjoys into a "problem" you might take another tack: Find positive more »

    He was rude. How old is he?

    A mature person leaves the party early for his previous commitment.

    To just totally forget about someone? He's either immature and rude or a candidate for AA. more »

    No----most people would be angry that someone made a commitment to meet and then never called. Note all the comments. He's rude. If she's a psycho its for second-guessing herself and asking if she ove more »

    If she was important, he would have said upon arrival, I need to leave at such o'clock because I have a commitment... He didn't, lost track of time and there you go. She's not that important to him. O more »

    No---rude is rude. This would be unbearably rude if it happened between friends. The behavior shows utter lack of respect. more »

    Self esteem issues. She is seriously considering whether she overreacted or not or whether she should talk to him again. She is wondering: did I overreact? No honey, you did not overreact. Move along more »

    Posted 06/25/2015 12:58:28 EDT

    No, he's probably gone through a number of women in that time and found that some will take his crap but eventually most won't. Someone probably dumped him again and he thought of who might be worth c more »

    LW should not apologize for her tone or have anything else to do with this oaf (my mother's era vocabulary, but it suits him). Don't second guess yourself. Just move on. more »

    Calling him a flake is kind. He's rude and inconsiderate and doesn't honor commitments. If she was important to him, he would have remembered the commitment and called. This says he doestn't respect h more »
