After 20 years of marriage, I suspect LW#1 gets turned on when he sees the wife get all dressed up to go out - so good advice to plan something specific for sex; maybe a dress up date at home.
As for LW#2 - he said 4 1/2 years ago he preferred monogamy; seems misguided to enter a relationship hoping he will reconsider at a later date. It may not have been wasted time for either of them, but seemed doomed from the start. Time to move on.
LW#3 - Yes, your clueless ecosexual should shower already, but a wet washcloth by the bed is good too...

There is content and there is delivery - either can distract from the other. It is a receptive balance of those two characteristics that creates true communication. In this case, it seems that the true audience is not the stated recipient, but those who can overhear on each side - "preaching to the choir".
commented on Bernie's More Popular than Ever, So Why Is He Still Losing So Badly?
We are not just voting for a President, we are voting for an administration. The devil is in the details, and a Republican administration would castrate any chance for equality and justice during the next 4/8 years. I plan to vote Democrat, no matter what, but Bernie can't win a national election. He can remain a beacon for progress, just not as president.

Rail needs to have a dedicated right of way, and the ability to control intersection traffic signals if the rail cars are on the same grade as vehicle traffic, to be effective, otherwise it's just a line of attached buses with steel wheels. The cute factor will wear off soon enough.
commented on Saying Good-Bye to Mama's
I worked in three different buildings close by in the '80s and went to Mama's frequently but trailed off; took a long time client there just a few months ago knowing it would close - same place, exactly. Oh well, time and so forth...
