    Berating her for wanting sexual pleasure is hilarious.

    The "cherish" part is what really stands out. Wow.

    Yes. So sad. My guess is he'll string her along another year or two, dump her, find some 27-year-old chick and have kids with her (his kids will be older and less resentful...slightly.)

    I hope you aren't one of those women who, once they have their own kid, want the other kids to disappear. But even if you aren't the kids will definitely lose some of their father's attention and they more »

    Yeah. I've been single twice as long. No magic formula, no guarantee. A really difficult truth for so many people to face. I blame rom-coms. more »

    The only real issue is work. If you can get a leave, then rent (do not sell) your house and go. If you can't get a leave, save up all your vacation and go for as long as you can. Meredith is right--yo more »

    But why give in to that expectation? Why buy what they are selling? That's what I don't understand. Some of friends feel this way too, but I never, ever believed joining a dating site meant I was goin more »

    A thousand times, this: It. Is. Not. Personal. The only way to endure online dating is to view it as an interesting window into human psychology and to keep those hopes and expectations beaten down li more »

    Goldie is right. I've met a string of 50-year-old straight men who have discovered the concept of the open relationship, and want fervently to convince you of its superiority. Met one just last Sunday more »

    Um, she can have a child on her own. I have two friends who have done it and are happy as clams. What she cannot (or at least should not) do is have a child AND a relationship with a man who does not more »

    I'm sorry. He's already given you his answer. If you really want children, you know what you have to do -- and ASAP. Most men who already have kids and then hook up with a younger chick will just go a more »

    Every sentence contradicts itself. "We didn't click but there was an immediate sexual attraction." "We never got closer but we grew closer." I don't know whether this is impressive or frightening. Or more »

    I don't think it's insulting. I think it acknowledges that men are not the mindreaders women so often expect them to be. If you want jewelry for your birthday, tell him. If you want him to leave the t more »

    First of all, Aziz Ansari is confusing love with romance and cathexing. This is not uncommon. It is also incredibly destructive. Love is not ephemeral.   As for the LW, she can make a move but my gues more »

    "I seem to be constantly interested in someone new."  Is there a problem here? I guess that depends on how you define problem. If not being capable of true intimacy and connection with another human b more »

    Are people on dating sites really looking for friends, or is that just what they tell themselves (and the people they want to, um, yeah?) I guess I'm old because I don't get that at all. I have plenty more »
