It’s time again for Shortcuts. For every question, I’ll give my advice in three sentences or less, because sometimes the answer to a person’s question is so obvious and the need to hear it so great, being as clear and frank as possible is simply the best way to go. Today we discuss lap dances, shoplifters, and mack daddies (the moral trifecta!).
How can some guys get turned on buy a stripper who usually sees him as dollar bills and is not sexualy attracted to him? Shouldn’t he have more self-respect and dignity? It’s kind of pathetic. — Not a Fan
You’re assuming that every guy who can “easily get a one-night-stand, occasional hookup, girlfriend or friends with benefits” is emotionally stable and not frustrated, while every guy who enjoys the instant and no-strings-attached gratification of a lap dance isn’t. That logic is about as faulty as arguing that sexual attraction must be mutual in order for a person to be turned on by another. I think many Angelina Jolie and Ryan Gosling fans would dispute that.
What do you think she is up too? — Dazed and Confused
I’m not sure what’s she’s up to, besides smoking and shoplifting, but I will say, as someone who tried to read the first 50 Shades of Grey novel, burning through the whole trilogy isn’t exactly the same thing as “book reading.” I’d advise that you and your daughter join your girlfriend in therapy and work through your family issues with the help of a professional.
MOA right away and find a guy who only has room in his life for one woman, I mean bitch.
