@7 Life is much simpler when you recast Any Man's Desires as The Urges of an Entitled Man. It really saves so much effort, a v. handy shortcut to end all debate. No need for discernment, or even thought really. if it is a [cis] man, it is entitled, then watch that Fav's roll in. Success!

@12 Duh, if you are cheating, you are validating that the woman you are cheating with is so much hotter/more awesome/more desirable than your present person. Never underestimate how much it turns a woman on to feel like they're superior to some other woman.

ah, a "miniscule" number of attendees did some stuff (that we won't mention specifically) that made Bernie look bad. What's important is that we say that Hillary looked just as bad. That's the important part.
Way to be a journalist, Mr. Baume, I bet your mentors are smiling in their graves!

I don't feel like this is good advice. The fundamental problem is that they aren't on the same page. But this is a symptom, as was his wifes weight gain and subsequent loss coinciding with her waxing and waning libido. They are fundamentally not on the same page. They seem pretty responsible about being able to execute openness, and it doesn't especially seem that there is deep trust issue... but they're just not on the same page. What do you want to bet one wants to have kids much sooner than the other? What do you want to bet these two had disparate sexual histories before marriage? etc.

Without the full throated support of the NBA for a new team here, I wouldn't have voted for the vacation either. This is not Chicken-and-Egg, I feel the league has to show commitment. They actively worked to prevent SAC and MIL from moving to Seattle with no horizon for them NOT doing such a thing for future vulnerable teams, and seem to have no appetite for expansion.
