Because it’s not a meaningless day of bullshit for the vast majority of people?

hi! this: “The good news is, there is no way to do 135 crunches a day correctly, if by correctly you mean “in a way that will make a goddamn bit of difference,” particularly given your diet, so I think you can probs relax about them. The only restaurants in New York required to post calorie counts are chain

It’s interesting how I hear the marriage isn’t feminist thing and I think “maybe you should understand how things evolve though history and in there are a myriad of social contexts you aren’t considering... also maybe stop telling this to a FUCKING LESBIAN YOU HETERO NORMATIVE PIECE OF SHIT.”

I would trust a felon, because at $65/day that vintage bike is a STEAL.

My small wedding was planned on a Sunday morning just so we could have the “reception” at an all-you-can-eat champagne brunch that I love at a hotel. You gotta do you on your special day.

No kidding. This is my dog (schnauzer mix). The only person he’s ever bitten is me, but we’re terrified that he’s going to bite someone else. And this is a problem, because this poor dog NEEDS to be socialized with humans (he wasn’t when he was a puppy, surprise) but we don’t know a lot of people in our area and it’s

You are probably going to get a lot of dumb posts from people (who haven’t spent a day in their life volunteering with homeless pets) about how this was all your fault. And those posts will list all the things you “should” have done.

Cue anxiety attack. I am officially 1 year and a day from my wedding and have literally $70 to my name. I have cut back on all expenses (buh-bye, Netflix, I will miss you!) and don’t splurge on anything and it still looks like I will need to get another job to contribute anything to our wedding. Budgeting for the

Yep, if you spent more than $40 on your wedding you are an idiot who cares more about pageantry than your actual marriage. That’s how that works!

Agreed 100%. Your wedding is yours, and if you know what it costs and have the means to pay for it without starving or ruining your credit, there’s no shame in celebrating as you want to. I’ve been to weddings up and down the price spectrum, and what matters is that the couple is happy and in love. You do you.

This is great. There’s so much shaming now about wanting to have a “nice” (whatever it means to you) wedding. Humblebrags from brides who held a bouquet of organic lentils in the courthouse and couples who chose to buy a house/go travelling instead, or those who spent $5000 on their wedding in 1970 with zero

I got hit on by a guy at my own bachelorette party. And I was wearing a penis veil and light up “Bride” sash.

I think it’s partly just due to people not noticing your ring. I noticed no decline in street harassment after getting engaged or married - they aren’t looking at your hand! Even guys who speak to you often don’t notice. I worked 2 weeks at a new job wearing my rings every day and many of my (male, some quite sleazy)

It didn’t fully hit me that harassment... I mean “compliments” had nothing to do with me (but everything to do with power) until some guy hit on me all day at a seminar as I was 7 months pregnant. My belly (with wedding band) wasn’t a deterrent. A ring won’t do shit.

When I lived in Ireland, a radio DJ did a survey where he asked girls who weren’t engaged or married to wear a wedding/engagement ring when they went out one weekend, and email in if their experience was the same as usual, or if they got hit on more or less than usual. It was almost 100% more.
