Comment on: Everyone is getting married
Posted 08/28/2015 03:00:08 EDT
This was hardly a head-spinning letter. If she didn't mention she had anxiety, this would just be another "everybody is getting married and I feel left out" letter.

I didn't get "crazy" at all from her post. Panic attacks can be purely chemical and not based on anything external. She's doing what she can to take care of herself physically.
Comment on: When do I tell him?
Posted 08/26/2015 11:30:34 EDT
After date 3 and making out, that's the rule of thumb for any "big" secret (this does not include cheating/marriage status). Why tell if they aren't actually interested in you?...
Comment on: Teen?s text to suicidal friend: ?You have to just do it.?
Posted 08/26/2015 11:19:39 EDT
She's a piece of crap and should rot in jail until she's actually sorry. The look on her face says everything. I'm not seeing a double standard here.
Comment on: My sex drive is back

Us "kids" have been using rebound for 25 years or so, so there has got to be something more recent that is equivalent.
Comment on: Brookline woman is the first openly transgender White House official

Be glad you feel that you were born into the right body/sex then. I'm always happy that I am attracted to age appropriate people and didn't get stuck only being attracted to teenagers, like some.
Posted 08/19/2015 10:56:24 EDT
I can't be excited about this. A former Boston coworker who is trans has been working in the White House since Obama came in. Maybe he doesn't advertise, but he clearly doesn't want notoriety for it.
Comment on: We're opening our relationship
Posted 08/17/2015 12:13:37 EDT
This is probably the most important question/comment on here. Because the response would be largely indicative of whether this can work or not...or how long it would work. I don't see this guy wanting more »
Comment on: Waiting for chemistry
Posted 08/13/2015 01:27:43 EDT
I think that he is worried if he is capable of intimacy. But clearly feels that it lacking is a problem. I think if the horse was willing, he'd ride. more »
Comment on: An awkward second date
Posted 08/11/2015 10:56:09 EDT
I'm torn between asking to see what she says and waiting for her to put forth the effort, if she is still interested. more »
Comment on: How do I block him from my life?
Posted 08/10/2015 12:50:20 EDT
Blurry photographs are such a give away (once you've been through it). I had a guy who lied about his age, and had a blurry pic up of him on a good day about 20 years ago. He then proceeded to actuall more »
Comment on: Should I reach out after the breakup?
Posted 08/06/2015 12:10:38 EDT
I hugely beg to differ. If politics is a huge deal to one person, but not to the other one (and you don't agree on anything) and the person wants to watch the news all the time and discuss it with you more »
Comment on: Her ex interacts with her family on social media
Posted 08/03/2015 12:15:42 EDT
I don't think he really wants every beach outing, dinner out, or whatever else his wife is posting to be blasted to her ex. I think that's fair to like a little privacy from this dude. more »
Comment on: I know he's not "the one"
Posted 07/30/2015 09:41:17 EDT
I think she feels guilty for not feeling more for him, and attributes it to their difference in background. She could be dating Mr. Financial District and still not feeling anything, but she's not exp more »
Posted 07/30/2015 09:37:45 EDT
I think this woman would be more interested in him if she had 10 more years of fruitless dating under her belt and this guy would seem pretty decent... more »
Posted 07/30/2015 09:28:04 EDT
Man, people are slamming you, LW. Yes, you need to break up with him. I don't see why all the vitriol though. Plenty of people "bide their time" in relationships. I dated a guy for two years at your a more »
Comment on: Getting past the third or fourth date
Posted 07/28/2015 12:38:03 EDT
I'd call it disappointment issues that make her question herself. She certainly is lucky that it didn't make it farther...like getting sucked in by newly divorced dude, possibly STD'd, and then told h more »

Comment on: He's different with his friends
Posted 07/20/2015 03:18:44 EDT
I drank like that. By the time I was 5 years older than Mike, I realized I was an alcoholic. Even though it seemed like just "partying." more »
Comment on: A Run of Bad Luck in the Bedroom
Posted 07/14/2015 11:43:45 EDT
I'm sure it is just awkward laying there and then her saying, "it's ok, it's ok." And not, "WTF is your problem ?!" more »
Posted 07/14/2015 11:39:20 EDT
I would also add that maybe skip the coitus and just go old school and only get to 3rd base. Practice doing other "sex" and normalize it for him. The only thing I would say is to think outside the box more »

Best comment on here. more »
Comment on: I Don't See His Friends
Posted 07/09/2015 12:25:13 EDT
I think she should start running with him. If it still doesn't work, and she hasn't already dumped him, they may have a future. Or just F him and move on. more »
Comment on: Boyfriend Or Baby
Posted 07/08/2015 01:01:16 EDT
And with technology/adoption and some money, there are options to have children if you want them. Nobody can argue with a woman's desire to have a child, or should. But she may not get the family she more »

I'm tagging onto the most liked bc I am intimately involved with a situation like this, not only bc I am also 40 with fertility issues (but married). My friend was in this EXACT same situation. Exactl more »
