Ditto. The only thing I’ve been able to complete are masks. Short and urgent project... Mailing some Wonder Woman print masks out to friends this week. That at least, feels good.

I’m with ya. I am introverted but I definitely started hitting the edges of my tolerance in the last few weeks. I jumped on some online dating sites, just hoping for some steamy chatting really... but even that I’ve found a bit emotionally draining. It’s distracting, but the loneliness is still here.

So not just you. I get contact from couples looking for unicorns far, far more often than I ever get a match with lesbians... Read more

Yup. Just yup. I’m a bisexual woman who was in a committed monogamous relationship with a man for 9 years. I came to peace with being ‘rounded up to straight.’ and erased. I wasn’t facing discrimination from the mainstream culture or randos in public — and that is great! — but I also didn’t want to play a single more Read more

Yeah... I don’t think I’d be quite brave enough to rely on it on it’s own either, but I’m happy to pop a pill and see if that minimizes the number of UTIs I get a year. Even when I was very sexually active, mine were never as frequent as you described. Fingers crossed D-Mannose is a good fit for me. Thanks again!

What amazes me is the number of people respond with variations on “You’re not likable!” and “You’re not the president!” Read more

“I’m confused, and I think men are confused” about the #MeToo movement,” Weinstein said in his rambling statement. “I think about the thousands of men and women who are losing due process, and I’m worried about this country.” Read more

I don’t know if this is helpful at all, but one of the cooler gifts my mom gave me as a young teen was two hours with a serious makeup artist (and a budget for some make up) who just, taught me some stuff. About brushes/tools, about keeping it simple and about dressing it up a bit more. I think the woman’s main gig Read more

That is not dumb or inane. That is THE DREAM.

Hah. Thank you very much. I’m speaking to a lawyer next week, but this adds some new questions to my list for them. Read more

I am talking to a lawyer next week and I appreciate the anger. I’m trying to keep my own anger well-measured and a bit separated from the issue of spousal support. I’m actually more disappointed in him then anything else. I don’t think he’s fundamentally a garbage human, but he’s been acting like one for quite a while Read more

He’s going to badmouth you anyway (I know the type) so being humble isn’t going to avert any unpleasantness. Read more

Yeah. The courts would probably give me 3x to 4x what I intend to ask for, but I think I’d be 100% comfortable with far less than the the medium/average amounts, and I’m hoping to manage this without taking that path.
I feel a little bit badly that he knows if he wants to fight, he’ll loose, but I’m hoping my initial Read more

Yes. This is exactly how I feel. In the long-term, he did take care of me in many ways in this partnership (especially financially), which is why I don’t feel it would be right to pursue some sort of maximum level of support, but in the short term, there needs to be some balance here.

Thank you - It’s a strange thing because my ex was usually able to talk a good game about me not being responsible for his issues, but when it came right down to it he didn’t take the kind of steps I would have taken with my own anxiety/mental health to make sure my partner isn’t left holding the bag.

Thank you! Honestly, I really relate to this. Even now, I’m really not that mad with him. I’m disappointed and frustrated with him, but mostly I’m angry with me that I accepted, and trusted and waited for so long. After the way he handled the spousal support conversations (which wasn’t that bad, but was also no better Read more
