    I frequent the site IMDb.com, which stands for Internet Movie Database. I love movies and it can be a great website to get information on upcoming films and whatnot, as well as movie showtimes in my area. One feature that they have on the site is the Daily Poll. This is a feature where regular [...]

    Thanks to all of you for your comments. You’re right, I was being too hard on myself. I liked especially how Sex-Toy-James talked about looking back every 5 years and thinking about how naive you were. I defintely do that about many different things.

    I am not asking for anyone’s thumbs up or down on my boyfriend. I’m the only one here that actually knows him so that would just be silly. I was asking about this whole baby thing. Sorry if the two postings so close together garnered any confusion, it’s just that the abortion revelation literally HAPPENED [...]

    I don’t know this woman at all (and I honestly don’t know how well he knew her either) so I cannot speculate as to her reasons for telling him about the abortion after the fact. I’d like to say that if it were me and I chose to have an abortion without telling the father [...]

    I agree with you Matt and that’s really what I was worried about as well. That’s what I meant when I said I didn’t know what to say and that it would be inappropriate for me to say certain things to him at that time.

    I responded to you in that post and you misunderstood what I said. We have political conversations all the time. Do we agree on everything? No. Does he know I’m a strong feminist and respect me and my beliefs? Yes. But this post was not about asking you to pass judgment on who I’ve decided [...]

    I think you misinterpreted a big part of what I was saying. But that’s fair and I knew what I was getting into with this story on this website. Yes, he would’ve preferred she carry the baby to term so that then she would’ve given up the child to him to care for for the [...]

    My boyfriend recently told me something that, in all honesty, I don’t quite know how to deal with. Well, it’s not something that I have to deal with, but I don’t know what to say to him about it and it left me kind of just staring blankly at him knowing that whatever I said was [...]

    So basically, I feel like a hypocrite. For years and years I thought, well in my mind I knew, that I didn’t want to have children. It just wasn’t for me. I watched my friends get married and I had all the conversations with them about babies and how excited they were and the whole [...]

  • SFLCircle commented on the blog post The Name Game   3 years, 2 months ago · View

    I’m not married yet but I’ve thought about this whole Name Game quite a bit. I love my last name because it means a lot to me. It’s really the only Jewish thing about me and I couldn’t really see giving it up. Plus, it gives my whole name this great flow in my opinion [...]

    Great post. But I do have to agree with davenj as well. While the assaulter might see those signs as unspoken approval, it can be a really difficult situation for bystanders to judge whether or not to get involved. I’ve tried to speak up on behalf of other women I’ve seen being harrassed before and [...]

    I think this is very good advice. I don’t understand why a lot of guys for some reason seem to always forget the simplest ways to let a woman know that you like her. You don’t need any special tricks up your sleeve. And hey, if you get shot down, you get shot down. It [...]

    I worked at many restaurants in my life and your observations are very interesting and spot on. The last restaurant I worked at did have ONE male host but that was only one in the whole year I worked there compared to about 10 females. If you worked in the kitchen you were most surely [...]
