@#8- "There's just nothing there"?

Well.. duh! He's slogging the GOP Debate. He has literally nothing to work with.

LW1- Based on the letter, I'd give the director somewhat of a pass. He sent out the script before the audition, so anyone who didn't like the gig could take a pass before wasting time or being surprised. His answer though, is total BS. He *wants* to make something he could be off to. Dishonesty there is creepy.


LW3- I can't imagine how you excused the idea of Photoshopping your skin color. Anytime you feel you need to start lying about yourself for the sake of a relationship, it's time to think long & hard. He can't actually "love you" because HE DOESN'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE! Let him know you are not white before meeting in person. Maybe he's ok with your "non-white" heritage, but he is likely to feel angry about being deceived if nothing else. Not a good way to say, "Hello." And, as Dan points out, you find his views disturbing & distressing. Why do you want to be involved with someone who feels irrational hate?

LW forgot to mention he's a housecat & has a sandpaper tongue. That's why the rim jobs hurt, too.

@FunFact- Guess I should have read through the comments before posting! Sounds like you have a handle on how to negotiate a situation like that a little better in the future. I had to laugh at the idea you made a spreadsheet to analyze the comments!

I'm gonna go out on a limb here & guess the 18 year old man from Portland wasn't ignorant of the risks of unprotected sex, unless she met him at an evangelical retreat. The letter makes it sound like he has a fair amount of experience with sex, so he's not off the hook. She did stop the action & ask if he wanted to put a condom on. He should have had enough sense to put condom on before putting his dick in a stranger. He put himself at risk & now he's being a drama queen.

But, saying you get "cold sores" is a pretty weaselly way to tell someone you have herpes. And even a fairly experienced adult may not really make the connection. Even though he may not really have herpes, you've lost his trust & respect. Don't be such a coward the next time you meet a potential lover. And Dan's right: you always to assume more responsibility when you have sex with someone in that 18 - 20 age range.

The people who commit these acts of vandalism aren't protestors, they are... well vandals. That said, the government is going overboard with this. This is not justice.

She should have the right to refuse immunity, if she'd rather plead the fifth. If she is later found to have protected a criminal, she should do time.

There's always some fumbling involved in sex, but try not to fumble a ball!
Jun 4, 2012 Uncle Joe commented on SL Letter of the Day: John Shore's Advice to a Young Christian.
I think the writer's real problem isn't the pastor, it's his parents. They are the ones forcing this meeting on him. He should sit down with them and talk about this. Switching to another church seems like a great compromise, but it sounds like his mother is on the Pastor's side here.

If he can't talk sense to his parents to get out of this meeting, he can't expect much in the way of support or protection from them during any meeting with the Pastor. I still agree with John Shore. He should very calmly state that his personal Christian belief prevents him from condemning same sex marriage. If the pastor starts bullying him, then his only course of action is to remain calm and silent. If he is asked whether he realizes his error, the advice to say that he his going to pray on this issue is good.

BTW, I don't share his faith, but I don't have any respect for people mocking it. Tolerance is a two way street.
