Comment on: Cold feet about the proposal - Love Letters - Relationships questions, advice and more
Posted 04/14/2014 10:08:54 EDT
Exactly. And the bad relationships are really bad excuses. I'm giving major side-eye to the fact that the letter writer says he has a hard time trusting women as a group. I don't know if the letter wr more »
Comment on: The âMangagementâ movement: Is it really happening?
Posted 04/02/2014 01:10:46 EDT
Yeah, I guess you're right. It's not like men wear rings ever, like after getting married.
Posted 04/02/2014 01:10:16 EDT
This is pretty silly. My fiance works a desk job, while I work in lab science. It's much more inconvenient for me to wear any ring (especially a gemstone engagement ring) than it is for him.
Posted 04/02/2014 01:08:30 EDT
How are men's engagement rings ending marriage? They're engagement rings ... it means the man is engaged to be married.
Posted 04/02/2014 01:07:55 EDT
I didn't want an engagement ring, and my fiance wanted to get me one. So we compromised: he could get me one if I could get him one. He loves wearing it, although lots of people assume he's already ma more »

So one of the reasons why it's going to be hard to end this relationship is that you're going to feel like you're shallow. Look at you, being shallow and selfish for breaking up with someone who is ju more »

Okay, soooo can we MAKE upskirting illegal? This is really stupid.
Comment on: Early morning workers, residents enjoy Twin Donuts in Allston - Allston Brighton - Your Town - Boston.com
Posted 03/04/2014 02:47:36 EST
I'm actually not surprised to hear they also own the Brighton Cafe; both places have the same great greasy spoon vibe. I prefer Brighton Cafe over Twin Donuts because Twin Donuts doesn't have a bathro more »
Comment on: American Airlines drops bereavement fares - Destinations - Boston.com
Posted 02/27/2014 01:05:07 EST
Right, because the only way to have a single, consistent program for both airlines would be to have no bereavement fares, instead of having bereavement fares available for both. Makes TOTAL sense.
Comment on: BAA issues new restrictions for Boston Marathon participants - News Local Massachusetts - Boston.com
Posted 02/26/2014 08:05:26 EST
I'm not sure how many of these rules are really going to be helpful. No signs bigger than 11" by 17"? I'm also surprised about the runners' belongings. That sounds like it might be really stressful. I more »

I want to echo what Meredith said about liking your relationship as it is now. If you are not happy NOW, you will not be happy married to this person.

Comment on: Fed-up voters meet the enemy and it is ... them? - News Nation Washington - Boston.com
Posted 10/19/2013 01:40:37 EDT
Considering the effects of GERRYMANDERING and VOTER DISENFRANCHISEMENT, this article is complete bull. The Globe should be embarrassed that they published it, and it should be removed immediately for more »

Mental illness ("sickness") doesn't compel you to kidnap, rape, and imprison women. Castro is indeed a monster.

Divorce IS an option. Kids are more perceptive than you think; even if they don't know what's going on, they probably can feel that something is wrong at home. Children are happier with happier home l more »
