I understand that the artwork on the column had to do with the STUNG 'signature,' but is there any particular reason why it's a Powerpuff Girl?

@12 -- By Dan's own admission, he knows so little about fashion it actually screws up the tastes of those around him. If he ever has to dress fancy, he lets his husband pick his clothes.

I'm a little disappointed that Dan didn't call out Pent Up on the fact that he said he can't just go to a sex worker because it has to be "by a person [he] can get to know."
What, is a sex worker just a blowjob vending machine to this guy? Sex workers aren't people that you can get to know, with feelings and hobbies you can talk to about, and it just so happens you patronize their business to meet them in the first place? Does this guy see it as beneath him to be polite and pleasant with everyone who takes his money, or is it just the people who could conceivably provide a service that he's apparently all but willing to risk his marriage over?
What an asshole. Dan, you really should have called him on that.

I'd like to second checking out the furry/scalie community. What with people who roleplay being dragons and other such monsters, and people who like to roleplay out predator-pray scenarios, there is a contingent of the furry fandom that would be sympathetic and possibly even eager RP partners.

I'm more than a little curious as to how much therapy she's had. She only vaguely mentions it once in passing. If she's had years and years of therapy and this is where she's at, then she may just have to live with it. But if she's had, like, a month and a half, I'd say go back.

commented on SL Letter of the Day: The Care Package
I'd be willing to bet money that getting knocked up made her take stock of what kind of guy she's dating, and she realized she's just done with him. More or less what #27 said.
Though that said, if I were him I'd probably still have some sort of care package delivered (especially with some money to help cover expenses), but I wouldn't suggest actually texting her when he gets back from his trip. I'd have the note say "Gonna be out of town for a few days, but after that if you want to talk I'll be available." And then that's it. No more contact from him unless she reaches out first. It's pretty obvious one way or another that this relationship's over and that regardless of how he has or hasn't acted she's seeing the pregnancy as something he's done to her.
And if I could address the guy, I'd emphasize: Do not talk to her again unless she contacts you after that. You sending her a care package is not a promise that she'll accept or use it and it does not obligate her to talk to you again if she doesn't want to.
