Dec 7, 2016 Mike Friedman commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: The Current BF and the Ex-Intern.
Did he fuck her? No. Did he make out with her? No. He went and had a drink with her in a large group.

Chill out lady. You're being a crazy irrational person. This is YOUR bullshit. He was simply trying to spare your feelings and not create drama, but you create the drama yourself. I have a feeling this isn't the first time, ether.

He has friends. Some of them are female. He's allowed to see them. He's allowed to not tell you every detail of what he's doing when you're otherwise super busy and focused.

If a man was writing this letter, Dan would've been all over him for being a controlling douchebag.

And if knowing things about this woman makes you crazy, why do you follow her on Instagram?

God, I hate It's A Wonderful Life. My family was not in the cult of this movie, so the first time I saw it, I was about 25. I despised it. I wanted them all to die, especially the angel.

Wait. I'm supposed to have sympathy for someone who's hubris and greed got her into trouble?

We're not talking about a family trying to buy into the American dream. We're talking about someone who took some huge risks with her own house and then was surprised when they didn't pay off?

And then she votes for Trump? Please.

Dan is right, LW.....why are you living with someone (whether you're officially "together" or not) who makes you miserable and slut shames you for something harmless? It's none of her business. Period. End of discussion.

Move out, get your meds checked (maybe if you're not constantly around someone who makes you miserable you'll feel better on the depression front) and get yourself laid. You deserve it.

"Learn some manners?"

So we have to be nice to people who tolerate racism and misogyny and antisemitism and homophobia? So we don't hurt their fee fees?

Do the right thing and dump your poor fiance before you snare him into a life of misery. What a fucking drama queen.

Dear, please get some help. Dan's right. Get thee to a therapist!
Oct 22, 2016 Mike Friedman commented on Why Do So Many ST3 Critics Want Buses When Trains Would Be Better and Cheaper?.
What you all should really be asking yourself is why you have two separate agencies running buses and trains? Just look at the Bay Area where the balkanization of public transportation leads to things like a train pulling up just as another one is pulling away. When questioned, the agencies tell you "not my problem," as if wanting to transfer from a light rail to a commuter train was some crazy stunt, instead of me trying to go home.

Buses and rail should be managed TOGETHER. With the same sources of funding and integration. It's not rocket science. Really, it's not.
Oct 10, 2016 Mike Friedman commented on SL Letter of the Day: Thanks For the "Cure," Mom..
I'm gonna pile on and say Dan is absolutely right. Silence on this subject unless she brings it up. Then a very cold, brief email.
Oct 4, 2016 Mike Friedman commented on Oh, Come On, Stop Complaining About Pumpkin-Flavored Everything—Pumpkins Are Delicious.
Pumpkins are delicious and not just as dessert.

The problem is the "pumpkin spice" anything just tastes like shit and has nothing to do with the actual plant.
Sep 20, 2016 Mike Friedman commented on Savage Love Letter of the Day: Daddy Issues.
Honey, please don't make dating an older man sound like a terrible affliction. Just date people you want to date, that you are attracted to and don't worry about what other people think. It's pointless. I'm 52. Trust me on this one. I've been out of the closet for 36 years.

I've fairly recently discovered the power of the word "Daddy." It's amazing and I love it and so do the younger men I play with.

Finally, maybe it's time to move out of the small town you grew up in and move to a big city. More Daddies to choose from.
