That's not creepy at all. Not al all.

What a douchebag. "publish and iterate?" What does he even mean? That's a stupid phrase. he thinks he's saying something deep and profound and he just sounds like a dumdum.
Feb 7 Mike Friedman commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Maybe Sex Just Isn't His Thing.
Excellent answer. I'd add one thing. If you're stymied by this, go get some therapy to help you sort out the issues you're dealing with. Find someone who's experienced in dealing with sexual orientation issues and isn't going to shame you (don't be afraid to therapist shop and tell them why you're coming to see them). Good luck!

Dude. Seriously. Chill.

Don't hold grudges. Ever. Not in romantic relationships, not in platonic and family relationships. They're toxic. And they only end up hurting you.

It was one of the lessons I learned early on in my current 11 year, and going strong, adventure with a wonderful man. If you forgive someone, mean it.

In most of the country the only place to get half decent coffee is Starbucks. So they're stuck. HA! :-)
Jan 25 Mike Friedman commented on Trumphoria: Dow Jones Industrial Average Hits 20,000.
Everyone should listen to this Planet Money episode on.......Why the dow is stupid and why it's meaningless.

No serious economist thinks about the Dow, looks at the Dow or uses the Dow to do anything.

Hate to break it to you, but "gift" as a verb has been around for 400 years.

"The use of gift as a verb is not new, at least according to the Oxford English Dictionary, which lists examples of gift used to mean to make a present of from as early as the 17th century."

also

"Incidentally, there is a second, less controversial verb sense of gift: namely, to bestow with gifts, the gifts here being talents, skills, powers, and other positive qualities. The word in this sense usually appears in the participial form—e.g., “She is gifted with great musical ability.”"

As with many things grammatical, it's another case of young people needing to get off your lawn.

Did he fuck her? No. Did he make out with her? No. He went and had a drink with her in a large group.

Chill out lady. You're being a crazy irrational person. This is YOUR bullshit. He was simply trying to spare your feelings and not create drama, but you create the drama yourself. I have a feeling this isn't the first time, ether.

He has friends. Some of them are female. He's allowed to see them. He's allowed to not tell you every detail of what he's doing when you're otherwise super busy and focused.

If a man was writing this letter, Dan would've been all over him for being a controlling douchebag.

And if knowing things about this woman makes you crazy, why do you follow her on Instagram?
Dec 7, 2016 Mike Friedman commented on End the Saddest Year of All Time with the Saddest Movie of All Time.
God, I hate It's A Wonderful Life. My family was not in the cult of this movie, so the first time I saw it, I was about 25. I despised it. I wanted them all to die, especially the angel.
Dec 6, 2016 Mike Friedman commented on Trump Voter Rudely Woke Month After Trump Wins Election.
Wait. I'm supposed to have sympathy for someone who's hubris and greed got her into trouble?

We're not talking about a family trying to buy into the American dream. We're talking about someone who took some huge risks with her own house and then was surprised when they didn't pay off?

And then she votes for Trump? Please.
