    Holy crap to the girl who bought a samurai sword. People are cray cray. What happened to verbal confrontation first?? I mean yeah he’s shitty for cheating on her but doesn’t mean he deserves to be hacked up.

      He claims he never cheated, but his comments are mad funny! … In gamer-speak …

      I just showed my husband the article. Make sure he knows there are crazier people than me out there.

      LOL. YIKES.

      When I was young, during a particularly bad relationship, I’d go crazy with rage…and want to do things like “waiting to exhale” (Remember THAT movie?! I am having so much nostalgia for the 90s. )

      I think I threw clothes out a second story apartment once, but like, two articles of clothing. And I locked my ex and roommates out of the apartment while I listened to Fiona Apple and boo hooed into my 7eleven slushee on the corner of Tremont in Mission Hill in Boston. That’s about as dramatic as it got.
      Everything is so much funnier with time.

      She I guess he now is awful. People don’t seem to like the advice. I stopped reading it after having followed Prudie for many many years.

      I like Daniel Mallory Ortberg’s work. I didn’t always like the advice given, but I liked how open he was to criticism and other POVs.
