It’s time again for Shortcuts. For every question, I’ll give my advice in just a few sentences because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great that being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go.
When you say “it,” do you mean the “My Little Pony” tv show? If so, why do you have to watch it with a straight face? It’s a silly, colorful, kids’ show. No reason to act as if you’re watching a Civil War reenactment on PBS. Make some rainbow-colored Rice Krispie treats and watch thirty minutes of some silly kids’ tv if it makes your boyfriend happy. Have a cocktail if that helps. And if you mean something else by “it,” like watching your boyfriend gallup around while wearing a horse’s mane, then I’d probably MOA if that’s not your thing.
I’d be more concerned that he cancels one of the few plans you’ve made to actually be alone together. Clearly, he’s not prepared to be present in this relationship with you. MOA.
You have a high sex drive and yet the fact that you don’t remember when you and your husband last had sex doesn’t bother you? What about your husband’s sudden erectile dysfunction? I’d be making an appointment for him asap and accompanying him to find out what’s going on, which, if I had to guess, is probably a whole lot of sex with people who aren’t you. Yes, you should be worried.
