why do people keep talking about whether anger/outrage are appropriate or justified? the letter writer didn't say she was angry, just not interested anymore. and that she's sweet enough to even feel bad for this shows there's nothing wrong with her as a person. it's just not her thing. i can't blame her. i would lose interest too, and feel guilty about it. a bit.

and not disclosing a hysterectomy is not analogous. you can still have any and all kinds of sex with a hysterectomy. you just can't have babies. i somehow don't think breeding was a consideration in this instance.

agreed--shoes are the hardest part of it. plenty of large sized women's clothing around, cause...plenty of large ladies. but gaining weight doesn't make your feet much bigger--maybe 1 size, no more.

@jujube80 you know nothing of life, as evidenced by your comments. i am 50. it all looks very different to me now than when i was say, 25 or 30, in that i can see the specter of what awaits me, not that far in the distance. dan gave this man the right advice. just take the old folks' word for it.

yep. the only thing missing from this advice was to reassure him he did not come across as a psycho, just confused and unsure. and that's totally natural for him to be those things at this point in his young life.

lyft winds up being a cheaper, better experience every time. anyone care to make a case for the taxi industry that isn't complete bullshit? i'd love to hear it, and haven't so far in this thread, or anywhere else.

@11: i just moved here and i find it to be friendlier than the sf bay area, my native land. people here give you the benefit of the doubt, they are more open, more eager to spend time with you. but maybe it's just me. in any case, i don't get the "seattle freeze" like so many warn me about. my main problem here is my own insecurities and sadness. and i brought that with me from san francisco. dumping it asap, too.

should have been called "bear in mind." it was a good film, and hopkins carried it, the man who "rose above" and did so convincingly.

yuck. married for 25 yrs, stultifying, infrequent sex. i predict divorce after this experiment fizzles, which it will. (hint: his 4th choice consolation scenario is her first choice, and doubtless what they will wind up doing). i'm 50 now, and been there, tried that. but they will find out themselves eventually...

yeah, step up to offer help. it’s the most civilized way, for sure. offer to hold his place in line. it sends a message to him that taking his kid to the bathroom is important, without getting him on the defensive, and making a scene in front of his kid. it’s so obviously the best way, i don’t know how anyone could argue against it.
