So did New Age guy want to have sex? And in general, when you get a booking that starts out talky/non-sexual, how do you/the guy transition it to sex? Part of me thinks it's easier because when payment's involved there's less pressure but I can image that some men would never get around to it if left to their own… » 10/30/14 5:00am Yesterday 5:00am

I feel this so hard! I've been swimming pretty intensely for two years. I hate people thinking that I'm doing it to lose weight and being surprised at how fit I am for a fat girl. I'm fat, I've always been fat, and I've made peace with the fact that I might be fat forever - but I'd like to be active and badass and… » 10/30/14 4:50am Yesterday 4:50am

I'm going to this on Thursday! I think Miller is the creature and Cumberbatch is the doctor in the one I'm seeing, but if we like it we're planning to go back in a couple of weeks and watch it again with the roles reversed. I'm excited - perfect night-before-Halloween viewing! » 10/28/14 9:56am Tuesday 9:56am

Maybe I'm just slow, but it takes me pretty much exactly 40 minutes to get ready without makeup in the mornings. I take a shower, moisturise my face, blow dry my hair, find underwear and socks, pick out clothes and put them on, use my inhaler and brush my teeth - it all adds up. Though I'm not a morning person and I… » 10/26/14 8:53am Sunday 8:53am

I'm trying to get some quality gaming time in today (I'm sick! I need games to make it better!) but my cat keeps sticking her butt in my face right when Lara Croft is in a precarious position. Thanks, cat, now Lara will never get off creepy cannibal island. » 10/25/14 12:45pm 10/25/14 12:45pm

My husband and I got second-hand wedding rings. Hell, he proposed without a ring at all and my mom ended up buying me a ring (a small aquamarine on clearance) to wear because she thought it was weird that I didn't have an engagement ring. I didn't care, though, I just wanted to hurry up and marry the guy! » 10/25/14 4:24am 10/25/14 4:24am

I completely agree with this. It makes me cringe when liberals (And I often proudly include myself in that category!) defend him by saying things like "In France that's totally normal and nobody would bat an eyelid". Regardless of your feelings about whether a politician's personal life should be up for media… » 10/24/14 12:56pm 10/24/14 12:56pm

As someone whose husband died of cancer, I second this. People who are carers or are grieving or going through an emotional upheaval in their lives aren't well equipped to ask for what they need. So if you're close to someone in that kind of situation, do whatever you can think of to help even if you're not sure it's… » 10/22/14 7:56pm 10/22/14 7:56pm

I feel this pain. Even Amazon doesn't carry my allergy-ridden cat's food. I have to order it from Germany - luckily I live in the UK and it's not crazy far, plus they have an English-language website, but believe me when I tell you I now know the German words not just for all the common types of meat (plus duck! and… » 10/22/14 5:27pm 10/22/14 5:27pm

Cover your own ass first! I still think you should file a police report, juuuuuuust in case. Then get them to confirm in writing that you don't owe anything. Cashiers checks or electronic transfers seem like the safest way to pay them in future, if you can get them to confirm a real name/acct number. » 10/22/14 3:42pm 10/22/14 3:42pm
