This is just fantastic.
@jaimie GET AN IUD! Seriously, I went off of hormonal birth control for just a month (because I couldn't get into my doctor for a refill) and I noticed that I was constantly jumping my bf's bones. When I put two and two together, I swore off birth control for life. There is no reason to be scared of an IUD, the insertion is uncomfortable, but it is 100% effective. As in you cannot get pregnant. Period. Talk to your doctor, I really think it is a shame to waste a perfectly good sex drive!
@Jaya This is seriously the funniest series, I get so excited whenever you post new recipes. I know you are probably getting tired of it, but if you continue in this quest (not even an ironic Q!) I will find it hilarious, every. single. time. Thank you.
@Reginal T. Squirge My first crush was the first time I saw a boy.
@Emmanuelle Cunt Agreed. I think they'll get back together, have terrible sex and then remember why they broke up in the first place.
@Bittersweet He has the best tan I've ever seen
@Briony Fields Yes, I wish there was a GIF of that seagull
@charlesbois Yes addition 2! I could totally look at 900 of these. I mean it's Friday, not doing anything else...
@Lana @twitter I really agree with you on this, especially on your point about different expectations. LW3 is not bonkers, (LW3 - if you are reading this, you aren't bonkers!) she has a right to set her own boundaries on what level of friendship she thinks its appropriate for herself and her boyfriends to have with members of the opposite sex. Some girls would be totally cool with their boyfriends making and pursuing friendships with women they meet online, or elsewhere, but this letter writer just isn't one of them. That being said, the hard part about the situation is that her boyfriend IS okay with it. And when she talked to him about it he thought she must be insecure about herself because he doesn't think there's anything 'wrong' with what he's doing.
LW3 should ask herself 'If I knew my boyfriend was going to do this for the rest of our lives/relationship, would I still want to be with him?' Because as we all know, men don't change. At least not without wanting to change on their own accord. If you don't want to be the lady at the cocktail party whose husband is flirting with all the other ladies when you are 40,50,60+ years old then you need to move on to finding a guy who has the same expectations and comfort levels around friendships with the opposite sex.
In my own opinion, I have good guy friendships from HS, College, and work and I'm always happy to see those guys, so I've never felt uncomfortable when meeting an old friend/coworker of a boyfriend. But I don't imagine that I would enjoy having a boyfriend who was frequently increasing his stable of female friends, and that's okay.
This makes me realize how I'm usually drunk during kisses, and my only 'the moment before' thoughts are 'CUTEBOYMAKEOUT!' score one for maturity. Also, #14 was my favorite, adorable, but GIRL Backpack and fanny pack!? I would really like to hear the story of that day, amazing.
