I was having a "What is with the long hair thing" conversation recently, and observed the following: I get a total lady-boner over a dude with long hair. LONG, as in a full head of glorious hair past the shoulders and worn down, not in a ponytail or man-bun. It turns my head. It makes me go, "Ooooh, MY." SILENTLY. To… » 3/18/14 7:16pm 3/18/14 7:16pm

AUGH. I have a friend who is going through the same thing. It has been awful on her. First, they both denied what was going on, until the facebook and Instagram picture trail became too obvious. They got together while my friend was still crying on her best friend's shoulder about the break-up, and the best friend kept … » 3/12/14 3:59pm 3/12/14 3:59pm

I'm in my 30's, and "witch/witchy" has been a compliment the women on one side of my family have used for as long as I can remember. It basically means "above it," intriguing, marching to the beat of your own drummer, mysterious, powerful, intuitive. Stevie Nicks is witchy. Anjelica Huston is witchy. » 3/11/14 9:47am 3/11/14 9:47am

This was my thought. I can see being a writing teacher and saying, "In order to write well, you need to be able to write from different perspectives. If you are writing about the contemporary world, or about history, you need to be able to write in the voices and characters of a lot of different types of people." To me,… » 3/11/14 9:30am 3/11/14 9:30am

The sort of "loudest," strongest initial reaction I had to this was, "I would never date I guy I knew had ever paid for sex." A lot of my thoughts and reactions have been touched on throughout the comments here, so I'm going to do my best to sum up those pieces of my own perspective that I think are already in here. This… » 3/10/14 9:57am 3/10/14 9:57am

Hahahaha! I was mad at your boss for this entire fictional meeting because I so wanted to yell "BUT SKYNET!" because I totally absorbed into the Terminator hypothetical. Like, this is exactly how we (meaning humans/government) would fuck that up. » 3/03/14 11:00pm 3/03/14 11:00pm

In high school, I think the "at least someone is paying attention to you/be grateful for that validation" and "I want you to be attached so I don't have to compete with you," factors are strong. I had a conversation at a sleepover one time that consisted mostly of statements like, "You are FIFTEEN YEARS OLD. It's about time … » 2/12/14 9:38am 2/12/14 9:38am

They are insane. Surely the woman who can send a mass text before six in the morning can call in her friends as reinforcements if she gets into some sort of real conflict with the hospital over what's about to go down. I wonder if she actually just cleared the mucus plug and her water didn't break at all. My husband… » 2/11/14 10:54pm 2/11/14 10:54pm
