@26 If your partner wants to guilt trip you into a high risk pregnancy so that you both can pass on both of your "terrible genes", you should break up.

@10 I'm well aware of why my e-HUMPing idea isn't feasible...a girl can dream though!

I say do some kind of online e-HUMPing for those of us who are so far out there not even a "World Tour" would get to us. Such a tease!

Are there any options for remote viewing for those of us who don't live anywhere near the PNW?

This reminds me of the time when I was convinced that a boy I liked did in fact like me back because we both wore #11 on our respective soccer teams.

I was 13 yo.

Nice to see some uplifting news with all this shit from Russia.

But seriously, I think the US flag is more an international symbol for "USA! USA! USA!" than anything else.

@34 If you're not trying to be a jerk then why did you feel it necessary to say anything at all "without knowing the details"? I did take responsibility and make a good decision for myself by ending it. But this isn't a sort of immediate red flag that jumps out at you on a second date. It's easy to justify away when so many things about the relationship are amazing, and the psychological toll it took wasn't even obvious to me until I started my new relationship and my bf gave me a new perspective.

Especially with this guy lying through his teeth, I wouldn't be surprised if this woman has sort of forgotten what a healthy relationship between two people who are ridiculously attracted to each other actually is like.

OMG this could have been written by my ex. End it SWNH, PLEASE! I'm a pretty attractive, athletic chick with awesome boobs who used to have no problem with my sexuality and going after what I wanted, and 6 months with my ex just wreaked havoc on my sexual self-esteem. I finally left that relationship after figuring out just how toxic his lack of sexual interest in me really was to my sanity, and this is even after I figured out that it wasn't a lack of sexual interest in me, it was a lack of sexual interest in general that was prompting his constant rejections. It's like a sneaky, non-confrontational version of slut shaming to have your bf constantly tell you no. I became ashamed of my sex drive, felt weird flirting with him, and stopped initiating any kind of physical contact. I still have issues initiating sex with my current bf, and I'm only now starting reconnect fully with my sexuality.

If you take nothing else from Dan's response, just read these words over and over again:

"The lies you're telling, on the other hand, are more like acid. They slowly eat away at someone's sexual self-esteem and ability to enjoy sex until there's nothing left."

Not to mention the fact that if she is in fact older than 28, if she wants kids the longer you stay with her the more you're taking away from her ability to find a partner who IS attracted to her while she's still in her baby-making prime.

If you really love her, stop being a douche and end it already.

I hope I'm so lucky as to be having "the best sex ever" when I'm 60. Also, comparing the evolution of your sex life to the evolution of a rotary phone to iPhone 5 was brilliant.

@20 that is actually a brilliant way to look at it. I like it. You can't be fully culpable in one situation and play the victim in the other,

Honestly I see this as almost more of an example of America's ridiculous relationship with alcohol rather than an example of America's ridiculous relationship with sex. If kids were actually taught how to drink, if people actually took responsibility for the amount that they drank, we'd have less of these kinds of these kinds of issues.
