Jul 5 Timothy commented on FBI: Clinton "Extremely Careless" With Classified Material, But No Charges.
@11..."intent" is an aspect of the law that the FBI had to consider. Not so in the cases you list. But, you know, facts.
May 19 Timothy commented on Bernie Sanders Supporter Robert Reich: "Work Like Hell" for Hillary Clinton if She Gets the Nomination.
I for one will not be part of the group begging the Sander's Tantrum Team to support HRC. There may be others who feel called to do that, but not me.

I'm focused on defeating Trump. And HRC is more than deserving of our vote and our respect. To conclude otherwise is to simply ignore reality.

So, take your toys and go home as you wish. Meanwhile, I and others will still be here doing the actual work of moving the country forward.

Maybe it's time I stop ignoring those bored people by the transit tunnel. Perhaps it's time to start sharing a message with them.

@55...Maybe I'm not making my point well.

But hey, if in your experience dating women, you've found a wider range of early dates that are willing to talk about masturbation, that give me hope! ;-)
May 3 Timothy commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Soft Serve.
@52...I've dated a range of different women. From lifetime members of The Wet Spot to newly divorced who married young with little other experience. My point being...in the range of women, there are many who even after we've slept together just don't want to talk in certain ways about certain things. Men make the mistake of thinking "this is what I'd want, so all men must want the same thing!" Same holds for women; women tend to think that all other women are like they are. But I'm telling you that women are all across the board on how open they are talking about certain things, with most (in my experience) needing more time (even after having slept together) to get comfortable with certain conversations.

@49 Lava...I was going to push back a bit on your post @47. But loved your post @48.

Dan frequently gets the tone wrong on how to men should communicate with women. All women? Of course not. But in my time dating women, the vast majority will not respond well to direct sexual discussion in the early stages of dating. To be clear, I've dated many who would be OK with that, but they are far outnumbered by those who would rather I be much more subtle.

So...your suggestion of flowers is perfect. It can communicate so much without saying much directly. ... cheers!
Apr 19 Timothy commented on This Past Weekend's Democratic Caucuses Were an Unbearable Ordeal.
@4...most precincts don't even have a PCO. Now you're going to have each individual precinct find a PCO, elect a delegate...and have the whole thing Notarized to boot?

Yeah...good luck with that. :-)

Here's what you can do: pick any of the following two, but not all three:

Fast, Cheap, Good.

This breathless complaining as though babies were murdered and democracy was thwarted is getting silly.

So people had to spend several hours doing boring politics on a sunny Sunday. Bernie still got his delegates. Hillary still got her delegates. Nothing changes.

Of course we can improve the experience...but that won't necessarily shorten the process. If anything, it will allow more time to spend on platform issues.

Talk to her. Talk to her doctor together. Find a new doctor. Get counseling. Have patience. Understand this may be temporary. Set some goals and expectations. Discuss the possibility of opening up the relationship if this doesn't change over time.

ALSO...cheating with the friend has the potential to harm her as well. What if she develops feelings for the man? What if she wants more than he's willing to offer? Why involve her in his dishonesty?

Marriage, in my mind, is not meant for when life is good. Marriage is there for when times are tough. For leaning on each other. If we only think of marriage when it's convenient, then why marry? Just be single and openly date.

As a man who is starting to date women who are experiencing menopause, this is part of recognizing the women in our lives as human. Not just as sex toys. We take the whole person; and if we can't, we respect them enough to be honest about it. We do this not only for respect, but because we will likely go through difficulties as well, and would want the same in return.

There's a better path to human relationships than simply dishonest and disrespect. And how about some self respect too?

I'm tempted to run a statistical analysis of Dan's advice over the years, to prove to him that he's changed dramatically. Because I'd like him to square his current advice with advice he's given in the past, and explain the difference.

Dan has changed. I remember when the only time Dan thought cheating was justified was when there was an absolutely debilitating reason why sex was impossible, and that leaving would harm the partner more than staying and cheating. But even then, he used to first advise talking with the partner and trying to work it out together.

But now?
