Tell Me Your Problems

I'll definitely be able to help you out with this one. One deal-breaker for me was a young man I was dating who lovely and polite to me, but never said thank you to service people - waiters, cashiers, etc... It was appalling. I have more, should I keep going?

But egads, I think that man is too far gone for our zine.

OK. Here is one little honeymoon horror story of mine, and one I heard from an acquaintance:

1) paramour gives Aggie a lovely book. Very nice choice. Books are good. Paramour writes mushy inscription in book. How sweet, right? Paramour then proceeds to COPY the mushy inscription into his journal. Holy wanker alert!!

2) my acquaintance just LOVES that her paramour so politically involved, and protesting everything from homelessness to people who eat egg yolks. The dealbreaker for her, however, occurs when her paramour pulls a "coitus interruptus" (is this the right term?) in the middle of the night to go bail out his ex who has been arrested for punching a police officer in the face.

Is this the kind of stuff you are looking for?

My most definitive The Honeymoon's Over moment: I got home one Saturday afternoon and found a 6-minute phone message from paramour. It was an accidental message that occured when the crack-addicted prostitute he was with sat on his cell phone's redial button.

How about this scenario:

Heterosexual, non-polyamorous couple; she has an out-of-town male guest visiting who will be staying in her bachelor apartment with her for the weekend, sharing the same bed. "It will be purely platonic," she says.

"But does he have the hots for you?"

"He used to, but not any more."

"How about you stay with me at my apartment and let him stay alone at your place."

"Oh, I couldn't do that!"
