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.
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. :)
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
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?
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 neighbor..it's unseemly, and makes it tough on the rest of us!!LOL Goddess, your column ROCKS!!!
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'
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!
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 writer..eat a cookie, sit down, turn on Jerry Springer, and, push that thought out of your little brain! just sayin'
amen lady neeva
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.
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.
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...
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!
Amy, you are such a smart ass. I love you! Never change!
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.
Enjoy your advice and mostly agree, but I love your sense of humor! It puts problems into great perspective!
Your advice was great, especially about the "new" dieting discovery of more protein/low carbs is more conducive to weight loss than the line of bunk we've previously been fed. That said, I wonder how sincere this guy is about "not willing to...make her miserable." They've been married 7 years, have an unknown number of "kids" and she's "lazy" about working out. She's only gained 20 lbs. after 7 years and multiple childbirths...there's nothing "lazy" about a woman taking care of children, a house and a husband that works full-time. He didn't say anything about her slacking on any of those duties so I can presume she's doing a pretty good job of those responsibilities. I wonder what he looks like 7 years later and perhaps giving her a couple evenings or Saturdays off, without children/meals/husband/housework duties, she'd be more willing to go work out, go for walks, time with women friends, etc. He might be surprised at how re-generated she feels about getting a little "me" time.
Id watch out sweetie. Im in a marriage like that. Hes an a@$hole and tries to control everything I do. It doesn't get easier or stop there. It gets worse. RUN as fast as you can and don't end up like me in a 3 year miserable marriage/relationship where you can't find a way out.
Total honesty in a relationship is very important and if you are with someone who's response you are genuinly afraid of then it should have ended before it even began. Trust me!! It is unfortunate that it took me two tries to figure this out. You are an adult and should be respected as one. Eventually he is going to need a total play by play on every action and decision you make. As well as doing everything in his power to push out the people who will see through his delusions of this pecking order he has established.
