Hannah and Her Scissors & Be Stale My Heart

by Amy Alkon
newlyweds but dated for three years. She’s always been truthful and forthright, so I was dumbfounded that she kept this from me. She claims they’re “just friends,” insists the past is the past, and won’t discuss anything. I had trust issues with my ex-wife and have abandonment issues (thanks, Mom), but had ZERO insecurities about my wife until this.

Home Invasion Is Where The Heart Is & Swept Off Her Feed

by Amy Alkon
in, made us strip to our underwear, then bound and gagged us. We were tied in chairs, back to back, but were able to hold hands. (We weren’t hurt, and my mom came home and untied us a couple hours later.) I’ve always been attracted to this woman, but she has a boyfriend.

Thin Line Between Love And Haight

by Amy Alkon
jealous and flew out a few times to see me until I said yes to getting back together. We’ve had a phone relationship since January, with visits whenever possible. Well, I’m starting grad school on the East Coast, and won’t be mobile for three years. But, as for moving to be with me, he’s now saying he doesn’t know if he can leave San Francisco.

The woman who mistook her sinkhole for a boyfriend & Single trite female

by Amy Alkon
of his clinginess until we moved in together. If I want some “me time,” he gets offended. If I don’t stand or sit next to him or cuddle with him, he claims I don’t like him. If I eat lunch with a friend instead of him (as I do daily), he’s upset. Even when we spend time with my family, there are repercussions (moping and drama when we get home).

Mystery meet, thumber romance & every clod has a silver lining

by Amy Alkon

Serial monotony & Searching for that special yum one

by Amy Alkon
Marriage used to play out on the Wal-Mart model: the idea that one person would meet your every need from altar to gravestone. Couples these days seem to understand that this is ridiculous, and have friendships outside the relationship.

Gilbert Grope & Rogained another fan!

by Amy Alkon
had drinks in my neighborhood. He drank too much, and asked to hang at my house so he wouldn’t drive under the influence. I didn’t like this because I’m used to guys using this ploy for sex, but he said if I didn’t let him in, I was making him drive drunk.

Sperm Wail

by Amy Alkon
found “the one.” She’s gone from being ultrapicky to swearing she’ll just marry the next guy who doesn’t pick his nose at the dinner table. Wow.

The power of positive sinking & Past control

by Amy Alkon
It’s terrible, what happened to his roommate, but moving into somebody’s place and then announcing, “Oh, by the way, I’m traumatized by people having sex'” is like saying, “Did I mention that I’m deathly allergic to cats? Not to worry, I hear they don’t feel a thing when they get put down.
