@Sun Tongs Hurray! so glad you are here.
@lasso tabasco I love this "VOMIT NEWS" to "hey soup!" sequitur.
@up cubed DOING IT. DRYING IT. Over half way! I'm going nuts because denying myself something makes me think about it alll the tiiiime. My roommates are team players with me though, so we are suffering together and being pretty productive. Also it made me swiftly realize a dude I went on a couple dates with was super boring, which had I not been distinctly sober may have gone unconfirmed for another week.
I need to chime in AGAIN to point out how happy I am that this community still exists and comes out strongly in favor of carrying one's own.
@Myrtle That speech is stirring.
I want to chime in to demonstrate my support for this wonderful article. Walk in dark alleys alone! Do not live in fear.
@frenz.lo Who is the good girl? Is it she?
@adorable-eggplant YES Thank you. Also, have we no open thread, truly? Rue the day . . .
My resolution is to be sluttier.
I keep saying this half-jokingly, but it's kind of serious. I'm finally comfortably single AND dating around for the first time in about five years. I've also grown up about some sexual confidence stuff and recovered from a stupid abusive long term situation that was full of shame and horrors. So I want to go out and feel free and fun and fuck some dudes or gals and love all of it and be unabashed and explore with people that I like!
ALSO I HAVE DECIDED TO DO A DRYNUARY AND I AM FREAKING OUT OVER THIS DECISION ALREADY D: SUPPORT GROUP SUPPORT GROUP
1. Because your husband needs to feel like he has claimed you as property in order to feel secure
2. Because we (men) don't care how you feel about your family. If you love your daddy so much, marry him.
