On The Engagement Phone Cover and The Wedding-Industrial Complex

Oh my god thank you for this. I am getting married soon and I cringe every time I see this stuff specifically marketed to flaunt your engagement, a period that normally lasts less than a year!

A girl I know just changed her Facebook cover photo to say "He stole my heart so I'm stealing his name" and I wanted to barf.

@claire2222 Did you read the one she linked to? Because that was pretty well formulated and researched.

I would probably make a shitty coder because I have like five pairs of shoes that need to be resoled or shined.

On Coming-Out Technology, Exiting the Girlfriend Zone, and the Lesbro Conundrum

@Slapfight I keep thinking too that QC is acting like the only type of intimacy is sexual intimacy. Yes, there's no risk of them having sex here, but watching your significant other become really emotionally intimate with someone who ignores you every time you're around can do a number on you too. And yeah, as adorable-eggplant said, in any relationship you have to understand each others boundaries and be willing to work with them, both ways.

On Coming-Out Technology, Exiting the Girlfriend Zone, and the Lesbro Conundrum

LW#3, I get where you're coming from mostly. It shouldn't matter that she's an attractive woman, but the bit about her not really acknowledging you when the three of you hung out sounded like something to be legitimately concerned about. Of course he's allowed to have his own friends, but they should probably recognize you exist when the three of you hang out.

Whenever this jealousy monster has bitten me, however reasonably or unreasonably, I find I just need reassurance. I definitely think if this comes up again to talk to your boyfriend, and make it about you, not about this other friend or him. Say what you need him to do to make you feel more comfortable, whether it's include you in a few more outings with this new friend, or maybe just give you a few extra hand squeezes when he's talking to them. Hopefully your boyfriend will understand that it comes out of some insecurity, and do his best to make you feel secure while still being able to explore new friendships.

On Someone Explain Dating to Me

I'm now worried my fiance is going to leave me because he read all those stories and realized that by just being a normal fucking human he could date everyone.

It's like the negging is done for you!
