He puts me on his lap and lets me use the wheel while he uses the pedals. Is this a metaphor I'm missing or just a tremendously stupid thing to do?
I love that somehow "The best" part started with, "he has a gold tooth".
Skipping down to answer #1: I also don't want to to get married. Personal opinion only, but I don't like the institution. I'd do it for the financial benefits, and I'd do it if my life-partner really wanted it for her own personal reasons, but given my druthers, I wouldn't.
And I'm perfectly 100% cool with the idea of sharing my life with someone and being in a fully committed, lifelong relationship. I actually like that idea quite a bit. But marriage in and of itself is something I don't particularly like the thought of.
So if LW#1's partner is anything like me, I disagree with A Dude. I suggest she flesh out why her partner feels this way, and maybe why he decided to express it now. She may find the answer more satisfactory than she thinks.

What do we want?
Not to be ground up and put into beef lasagna
When do we want it?
Um, always, I guess?
@WaityKatie I heard 60% of monkey meat is actually just mislabeled lemur anyway.
@WaityKatie There's a Monkey in Your Meat will be the title of my next children's book.
"You won't eat our meat, but you glue with our feet."
I'm irrationally angry at LW #4. I'm picturing being their friend and having this happen to me, and how UNCOMFORTABLE and EMBARRASSED I would feel, and how FUCKING CARELESS and SELFISH and NARCISSISTIC my friends would have to be to do this to me. Jesus H. Christ, my stomach is feeling all clenchy and angry right now.
[I recognize that my anger is disproportionate to how this letter actually affects my life. Fair warning, though, if you are a rame-friend: don't fucking suck off your boyfriend in MY FUCKING CAR because you "can't wait". Ugh]

@WaityKatie My mom bought me some clearance LA Gears long, long after they were cool. She was so proud and excited to be able to buy something fashionable for me for once, in a house where new clothes were a rarity. I wore those crazy-garish discount shoes every day to my school full of rich kids (and was definitely mocked for it), but I never told her. This stuff stays with you, huh?
