On Faking Orgasms for Fun (?) and Profit

This is cool and everything, but I don't really get why we aren't discussing Polly's casually masterful "Little Red Corvette" reference in reply number two?

On Depression, Mothers-in-Law, Friendzones

Is this comment thread still being read? Because I would like to say that I was LW4 for six years, our relationship was word-for-word the same, and it COMPLETELY SUCKS. Respect your own desire more than that. GET OUT.

I'm your Ghost of Love Life Future, LW4, and guess what? Your future love life is really hard and terrible, because you're stuck in a situation where you're trying to get over your ex, but you can't tell anyone that, because your ex-boyfriend was NEVER YOUR BOYFRIEND. Or even your real friend. Because a good friend wouldn't encourage you to do this to yourself.

And just in case you're harboring any of the following thoughts: it's not secretly-sorta-romantic. It's not, you know, kind of like a movie, but a not a mainstream romantic movie, more like an indie type movie, like kind of twisted but also cute in a weird way, you know? NO. IT IS NOT. It's nothing. It's a non-relationship. Start working on your self-respect (you're wrong that this isn't a self-esteem thing; if your self-esteem were better you wouldn't think you belonged with someone who can't be bothered to "notice" or "label" how he feels about you), and STOP investing your energy into this guy.

I know other people have already said a lot of this stuff to LW4, but it's really hard to resist the impulse to try and yell at your past self.

Of all the typos in this piece, "white whine riesling" is my favorite.

On Texts From Jane Eyre

@Yahtzii YESSSSSS I am SO excited that that tweet, possibly my favorite tweet by anyone, is becoming a recognizable meme all by itself!

On The League of Ordinary Ladies: Summertime

@SuperGogo I thought so too, but unlike you, I was not glad when I figured out what he was really saying. I was, in fact, deeply disappointed.

On Engagement Stories, Cuddling, and Wonderful Boyfriends

"Do you really feel like Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson were having a platonic relationship in Lost In Translation?"

Kind of! That's what always made it such an interesting movie to me? Look, let's just not bring Bob and Charlotte into this, okay? They have their own problems.

On You Spoil Us, Mr. Ambassador

So, this appears to be a British ad(-vert), but they DID run it in America, right? Because I have vivid memories of watching it and taking it *completely* at face value. Like, wondering if one day I would ever be rich enough to afford the decadent luxury that was Ferraro Rocher, face value. I didn't make that up, right? They showed it in the States?
