This site wouldn’t be what it is without the active participation of all of you. Your insightful, funny, smart comments add different perspectives and valuable advice that I’m sure goes a long way in helping others sort through the issues in their own relationships. After the jump, some of the more memorable comments of the week (maybe you’ll even see your own!).
Desiree in “Should I Tell My FWB About My Miscarriage?”: I actually agree with you. Women, by a fact of biology, are more in tune with the consequences (or blessings, depending on a woman’s situation) of sex. I think men, in their uterus-free state, can more easily ignore these consequences. A reminder of the potential significance of their personal choices is not a bad thing. Wendy mentioned that this girl should “use multiple forms of birth control” as a result of this experience. But doesn’t the guy deserve the same advice?
callmehobo in “Why Is My Ex Bragging About His New Girlfriend?”: RR- I read your last sentence and this is immediately what leapt to my mind….
I’m a strong, independent black woman who recently moved in with her bf of three months. However, when we started moving stuff into our new shared apartment- I noticed several of his moving boxes were labeled ‘White power’ and ‘KKK stuff”. Should I be worried, or should I just MOA?”
SpyGlassez in “How Can I Stop Comparing Men To My Best Guy Friend?”: Don’t think of each date in terms of “MARRIAGE! KIDS! NOW!” because guys can smell desperation, and it smells like a zombie saying, “BRAAAAIIIIINNNSS!”
_jsw_ in “I’ve Only Been Married Seven Months And Am Already Miserable”: […] I have complete faith that you can be a wonderful single parent because, right now, that’s exactly what you are. Unless there’s an almost miraculous change in him, you’ll be better off alone – and available for when an actual man catches your interest. I know it’s easy to bash on strangers, and I know I don’t know your husband, but what you’ve written provides very little leverage to see good in him.
ReginaRey in 20 Things It’s Okay to Say to Your BFF: To go along with number 11… : ‘Nope, definitely NOT a good idea to Facebook message your ex boyfriend’s new girlfriend, ‘for her sake’.”
lemongrass in “I Want to Get Married So His Parents Will Be Okay With Us Living Together”: If the end of this sentence: “I want to get married because” is anything other than “we love each other, have similar life goals and core values, and want to make the commitment to spend the rest of our lives together,” then you are getting married for the wrong reasons and it will not last.
kerrycontrary in “Once a Cheater, Always a Cheater?”: LW 1- it may not be once a cheater, always a cheater…but I’m pretty sure it is “consistently a cheater, always a cheater.”
