Hey, shallow people need love, too.
/biatch needs to get over her insecurity, dude needs to quit looking in the mirror when fapping.

Probably wouldn't come out and play.

Totally not letting him down easy. Nope. Totally not doing that.

How do beautiful women end up insecure?

One of life's mysteries....
 
2012-11-02 07:09:42 AM  
Hot or not.

I can't tell you how many times the exact same thing has happened to me.
 
/ can't tell you because it never has
// have 26 minutes to get to the gym

It must be the sharp knees....

If he's so attractive, then let's see his nudie pics. Also, if he thinks he's so hot, he's going to come out of the closet soon...wearing his girlfriend's pink stilletos.

Unrelated: Yay! Prudie says I can continue sending my brothers fart jokes and insulting comments about other people because it's juvenile--and that's a good thing.
 
2012-11-02 07:12:51 AM  
I hate when this happens. Getting dumped by a 7 makes me feel like a 9.
 
2012-11-02 07:14:17 AM  
Maybe what she means is, "Cute guys aren't interested in long-term relationships." Which is mostly true, because they don't have to be. If she's interested in a LTR, this is not the right guy.

This is not the same as saying that they all cheat, of course.

Dude, she was in the Caribbean getting some BBC. Let her go man, cause she's gone.
 
2012-11-02 07:21:36 AM  
It is beautiful, but so was he. He just wouldn't let her see him smile.
 
2012-11-02 07:21:38 AM  
She feels guilty about f*cking other dudes on vacation.

moothemagiccow: I hate when this happens. Getting dumped by a 7 makes me feel like a 9.


Took me a second, but once I got the joke I really enjoyed it.
So what happens if you're dumped by a 10? Or are you the only 10 out there?

/Just broke up with GF
//She played the George Costanza "it's not you, it's me" card
///It really was her
////Slashy slashy

I don't claim to be an expert like Prudence, but just reading the first two lines of that guy's letter, I think I found the problem.
 
2012-11-02 07:26:23 AM  
I found the letter from fed-up mom at the bottom of the page quite interesting.

As far as the dude, go look at yourself in the mirror some more, it'll be ok.
 
2012-11-02 07:26:49 AM  
She's farking someone better looking than you.
 
2012-11-02 07:27:58 AM  
It's about damned time she answered my letter!
 
2012-11-02 07:30:52 AM  
That end of men bullshiat (third letter) needs to stop. Sure, it is totally fine for a woman to partake in any role in society, but the moment a man diverge from your John Wayne Schlick fantasy you claim it is the end of western culture. This is more in response to Pru than the author of th letter.

I dated a ridiculously hot guy once. I mean perfect stupid face, perfect stupid pearly teeth, perfect stupid hair, perfect stupid bright blue eyes... it was a joke among my friends. But there was not really anything going on behind the good looks. He was successful at his job as an editor but he had absolutely no personality whatsoever. I may as well have just lugged around a cardboard cutout of a hot guy and had the same results as that relationship.

When we broke up I told him I was too insecure to be with someone as attractive as he was. I didn't want to hurt his feelings. It's the new "It's not you it's me."
 
2012-11-02 07:32:30 AM  
The egos around here... Subby was referring to the fart-jokes letter, folks!

/fart jokes are never not funny

Pretty much what I was thinking. His personality sucked so she came up with this excuse.

And sending flowers to the office after only 4 months? That's damn cheesy. Usually funny girls with great personalities are beyond spontaneous flowers early on. Spontaneous flowers 3 years into a marriage, however, may be received differently.

Yea he sounds clingy too. If your girlfriend of only a few months goes on vacation to a tropical island without you and then doesn't call you when she gets back, that's a sign that you're no longer dating. Move on.

I'm off and on seeing someone who while pretty is really quite dumb, but very endearing.

She's a world of dysfunction and you got of easy, pretty boy. Have fun farking her "friends".

Okay, that made me laugh.  And a valid point. Things that make you go, "hmmmmmm....."

I still buy flowers for my wife for no other reason than to make her smile (she likes flowers).  We've been married 17 years now.

I'd ballpark him around, oh, 120ish, I guess.
has a lot of emotional problems, as well.
his dad gets stitches because he fell, poor thing is nearly hysterical 4 days later. Meanwhile, my dad is sitting on a table across the room in a box...are we seeing a bit of a disconnect?

I'm guessing he was always telling her about the hot women whose advances he was turning down while they were together in favor of being with her, and also making a big deal about how he used to date hotter women but now he loved her for her personality, yada yada, and she got tired of hearing it.

This was literally the very first thing that came to mind.

Dear Prudence,

She broke up with me on the phone.

Do you know where I can buy a grenade launcher and not get caught?

Thanks,
Some Dude

"You're boring. Boring. Boring."

"Oh. Okay. Dueces, biatch. I'll just go hook up with a celebrity."
 
2012-11-02 08:54:19 AM  
She was cheating on you on vacation, nail her friends instead. This reminds me of my last girl friend who broke up with me because my cock was to big.
 
2012-11-02 08:55:01 AM  
If I had a dime for every-time a girl dumped me because "You're too good looking" or "You're penis is too big" I'd be set for life.



/never ever happened. not once.
 
2012-11-02 08:59:23 AM  
Damn, I thought Subby meant the 3rd letter.
