Like the creative writing workshop advice goes, if one person tells you a piece of feedback about your story, that's just their opinion, but if ten people give you the same note, there's probably something worth paying attention to on the input side.
"You dumped me, remember? Kindly sigh into someone else's moving boxes."
I believe the classic phrase is "don't set yourself on fire to keep somebody else warm."
It is that time when I pretend that the search strings people typed in are actual questions. Details? What details. Mitigating circumstances? Ha! It's all assumptions, all the time!
Was your dentist flirting with you?
No. And if he was, gross.
"Say, Old Bean, it was really fun to have sex for a while, but I'm going to need you to find a new topic of conversation."
What if a) loneliness really sucks and b) finding romantic love is not primarily an internal and external makeover project?
