As a fan of both porn and of sex in private, I find the whole idea of this show scream-worthy. I have as tough a time understanding why anyone would want to watch it as I do the rest of television.

Doormat. He's snagging everything in sight. Also, why would you want to "completely trust" someone you already know to be an accomplished liar? Poor child, I am very afraid this is not, after all, her first healthy relationship. Looks like that is a little further down the road.

Aren't most of us who date men much more interested in what he's got in his pants, rather than in his shoes?
Things happen, everyone's body has some sort of issue. Once we're as old as the LW (40's,) this is a simple fact of life. If he has to disclose his amputation, don't I have to disclose my physical issues? Viva la mysterie!

I agree with Lauchlin. We can argue over whether helping someone cheat is okay or not (I lean toward not) but I think we can all agree that putting it in crazy is a bad idea. You never know what crazy will do next.

If the letter had been written today, I'd agree with #11 completely. At that time, though, weren't wives more commonly assumed to be the husband's property, and weren't the roles so much more nailed down? For the time, it's a great letter.
And if it had come from a man, it would indeed seem very caddish, but men were already assumed to have at least the sexual freedom and the work ethic, so it would be more in the line of rubbing his fiance's nose in an ugly reality than of bravely claiming equal rights.
But if anyone wrote a letter like that today, I'd agree; they are best off remaining single.

This sounds more like it came from a sorority than a fraternity. Or perhaps more like a junior high school dance team. Oh the drama. Oh the gossip. Oh the intrigue!
I guess that was sexist. Or ageist. Or something. Oh well.

@2 - I'm uncomfortable using the restroom, even with stalls, with men in the room. I don't want to smell male pee (smells different,) don't want unknown men in the room when I have my pants down, even if they can't see my genitals. It just doesn't feel safe. Yes, I realize it's a hangup.
OTOH, I'm fine with the woman who was born a man, or even a man as low-key as this one, once in a while, especially if it doesn't even come to my notice.
Or a dad who has a little girl who needs to pee and still needs help. We need to be understanding once in a while.
But in general, a public restroom is not the same as the one at home, so I won't buy the argument that it doesn't matter since there are stalls. I worked in a place where there was a unisex, multi-stall toilet, and most of the women hated it.
