Re: “Is he spoiled, or is she 'emotioning'?

Thank you Elle for taking the time to do some reading.

Are you, by any chance, a collector of 18th Century nasal rebreathers? That would certainly be an interesting happenstance. I hope you took a bit of time to click the Google+ button below any of the articles you found interesting. I find that encouraging.

And referring to any resemblance... yes I do.

Re: “Is he spoiled, or is she 'emotioning'?

Hi Amy. Google Search snippets are a funny thing. While I was casually going through my search results I see this:

"When I was in my late teens, I was hot to be completely independent from my parents. Now that I'm in my late 40s, I wish my parents would get high on LSD and ..."

Now, of course you know I just had to click to find out what you wanted them to do once the acid took full effect. Paying your electric bill was not on my radar. Though this compared to them say, finger painting the SUV seems a bit more pragmatic.

Now - I'm off to look for my dimmer switch.

Re: “Advice goddess

I always get a kick out of people saying this causes this, and that causes that, without backing up their words with actual studies or statistics. Appalled wife is speaking for herself obviously when she says "Pornography causes great harm to marriages," as she backs it up with no statistics.

Your response was well written and informative.

Re: “Advice goddess

Miss Four Eyes. You mentioned that you photograph better without glasses, and I'm wondering if that's because of the lenses or the glasses themselves. I am a glasses wearer with a hobby of photography. The best way to photograph with glasses is to remove the lenses. Give it a try and maybe you'll like some of your photos. :)

Re: “Advice goddess

i heard that you actually have timed how long it takes guys to have sex...and in the wanton case maybe you should too. it seems that you can't get your arms around anything larger than sexual attraction so your watch would probably peg out at about 5 minutes. "you" know that guys only have one thing on their mind.
maybe in this wanton case the female should take some medication to get over how men really are.

ps..i think you're a sexy thing and it would take me 4-5 hours to make you happy..a note from a fond admirer

Re: “Advice goddess

As an older woman who had a guy (boy) 15 years my junior in unrelentless pursuit, I'm thinking major Oedipus Rex. Time for the old couch, baby, and not mine! Up to ten years difference can be flattering, but I think he'd get a little bored watching me cover those pesky roots every month. Obviously the inability to comprehend "no" isn't generational; a gender issue, perhaps?

Re: “Advice goddess

As an older guy who usually has success with younger (20's) women. You hit it on the head or, over "beside himself's, head) most of my young ladies approach me! To continue pursuing a much younger woman is CREEPY!
Older guy's, trust me LOTS of younger women enjoy what older guy's have to offer..and, MANY DO NOT! If a younger lady has interest, she will show it! "Besides yourself" attempt NOT to be the "PERV uncle, or, dirty old's unseemly, and makes it tough on the rest of us!!LOL Goddess, your column ROCKS!!!

Re: “Advice Goddess

FUNNY S**T! As a man, one with a fuzzy back, I STILL won't date a woman with a better "handlebar" than I can grow! Seems like No Prob. W/hair, is a little to defensive!
Her "fur fury" might be attributed to, too much hair of her own! just sayin'

Re: “Advice Goddess

At 27yrs., I was BLESSED with almost white hair. Now at 47yrs., I wouldn't trade my thick silver hair, snowy white goatee for ANY color. Most women I date are much younger, 20+yrs., younger! I would recommend a SERIOUS dose of self confidence! A little more time at the gym, a lot less time absorbing t.v. bullshit!
Most younger women tell me my hair is an instant attraction. Probably because a tall good looking older man, and, a sexy young lady draw a lot of looks! Hey, try NOT to end up with purple lips!

Re: “Advice Goddess

Amy, from the overweight, the neurotic, and, just plain STUPID, I think you call it like you see it! REFRESHING! In the PC "OH MY GOD DON'T OFFEND ANYONE" world in which we reside, open oppinion ROCKS!
When you can't controll your food..DECEPTIVLY want to create life, or, are just a flippin' LOON...DAMN PEOPLE, GET A GRIP!!!
One small suggestion to EVERYONE..if you are thinking about ANYTHING that also sparks some need to seek an advice a cookie, sit down, turn on Jerry Springer, and, push that thought out of your little brain! just sayin'

Re: “Advice Goddess

I may be ugly on the outside, but you lady are ugly on the inside. And that is a lot harder to fix. For someone who thinks they're some sort of authority on rudeness, you deserve an award for hypocrite of the century.

The only excess weight this woman should feel required to lose is the boyfriend.

Re: “Advice goddess

Trying (to stay the same), is still a jerk and yeah SURPRISE hasn't changed./yawn
He should be honored he was given a mercy "bedding" from the soccer lesbian.
Im thinking if he likes sexy dresses maybe he should invest in some for himself.
might work.

Re: “Advice goddess

The Love Bloat: Great advice by the way Amy. Having been in an open relationship I can tell you that they have their issues as any other relationship, period. One is not better than the other nor prone to success or failure more than the other. What I do know is that you should be with someone who shares your basic values. Multiple partners is definitely something that should be a shared value not just an "okay I can deal with that" but rather "yeah, me too" sort of thing! I feel it's also wrong in a relationship to acknowledge the values up front and then after you are together for a while; one of you changes your mind. Unfortunately that is life and life changes. When that moment happens you really should stick to your own set of values because changing them for someone else just doesn't work, at least not for the long run.

Amy's advice about finding someone else is really sound because he is being selfish and that's never a good way to be in any relationship. Bottom line, open relationships work and so do closed ones! They only work, however, if all the people involved are in agreement on how it should work! Been there, done that, no T-shirt though. Just my two cents...

Re: “Advice Goddess

I totally agree that the cell phone has caused people to become more self-involved and self- important. I can't stand the twitter movement, for I don't see the need to anounce trivial moments of one's life to the internet world. My biggest pet pev is people talking in public so loud that everyone is included in the conversation. I work in customer service, talking on a phone all day long and the last thing I need when I get home to my small one-bedroom apartment is to hear my neighbors taking a smoke break on the porch balcany close to my livingroom window and talking on the cell phone the whole time. My closest neighbor does this about 2 or 3 times a night. Now people can't just smoke outside, they have to talk on the phone while doing it. Uuuggghhhh!

Re: “Advice Goddess

I managed to be a stay-at-home-mom for a whole 6 months before I wanted a job so badly that I ran screaming back to the workforce. Now my son is six, and I still can't get housework done in an efficient time frame when he's home! Was this guy cleaning in the presence of children, and was his wife, too? Apples to apples? Maybe you're just a super-cleaner and should go work for the Merry Maids.
