Literally Addicted: If my guy ever said 300 sandwiches = an engagement ring, I would make all 300 in one day and make him eat them and watched his stomach explode like the guy in Seven.


Perhaps you should warn him about this... He should know how easily you would go completely psychotic on him and attempt to kill him like a serial killer. It's only fair you warn him now before he makes the mistake of offering an engagement ring in an 'unapproved' fashion (or at all).

Let me suggest an interpretation that's fair and reasonable to all involved.

"Make me 300 sandwiches" means "be involved with my life for a year, and do something kind, loving, supporting, and nurturing for me."

You only want to marry someone that you know well.  You only want to marry someone who will do nice things for you.  You only want to marry someone with staying power, who can show commitment to a promise and to a person.

Making 300 sandwiches is a way of demonstrating that she fits into those categories.


/or you can put an Oedipus complex interpretation on this
//he wants to marry his mommy cause she makes sammidges for him
///and cuts off the crust, too.

suelswalker: Meh. I'd just take a trip to costco, buy enough loaves, cheese slices, and meat to make 300 crappy sandwiches and call it a day. Later I'd send him the bill for said sandwiches. If he pays and sticks around maybe it might work. But most likely I'd not be in a relationship with a guy like that to begin with unless he looked like Chris evans and then I'd just go the get knocked up route. Worst case I get a pretty baby.


You should, maybe, go to the woman's website rather than taking the Jezebel version of the story as gospel. Jezebel took a tongue in cheek comment and turned it into "bad man!" fodder.

I enjoy cooking for my SO. She enjoys me cooking for her. I don't see the issue.

First of all, why the fark does anyone care how two complete strangers live their lives? The woman took what was most likely a little inside joke between her and her BF and decided to start a blog about it. In a day and age where everyone has a blog, she decided to make hers different and clever in hopes that people might actually read it, and guess what, it worked. Now some stuck up biatch decides to come along and give her shiat for it.  Both of them seem happy so what the fark is the problem here?

It seems to me that more and more of what passes for online content these days falls into one category and one category alone. When you boil it all down it amounts to nothing more then "Stop liking what I don't like".

RedPhoenix122: Has it always been like this, or is it just recently that Jezebel seems to be nothing more than actively trying to look for things to be upset about?  It's almost as bad as right-wing butthurt.


Ah ya-know if you publish any sort expectations for a woman in the 1st 15min of her day you know your going to get be getting plenty of nastygrams full of butthurt.

What a colossal waste of time and money. Most guys would have much more respect and admiration for a woman that made 299 sammiches for a homeless shelter and brought us home sammich number 300.

Well, that might explain the obsession with sandwiches. Scandinavians pretty much spend all of their time eating open-face sandwiches, whenever they're not solving dastardly sex crimes or ascribing to Neo-Nazism.

mediablitz: The woman who wrote the story doesn't sound bitter AT ALL.


Because naturally, when watching someone make three hundred sandwiches for a guy whose morning line is 'why haven't you made me a sandwich yet', the first reaction is to be jealous and bitter that you can't attract THAT fine specimen of humanity.

lockers: Coco LaFemme: The guy sounds like a prick, and if she gets him to marry her, she deserves the misery that will come from spending the rest of her life with him.

It's possible he is a prick, but I am not going to believe from a blog post by a shrill harpy. The article drips acidic loathing of the very concept that you would serve your partner. If it was a guy doing the sandwiches, this author would have come up with some reason to hate them for that too.


Maybe this is me not fully understanding the point you're trying to make, but there's a difference between doing something nice for your partner and "serving" them.  If I'm making myself lunch and my boyfriend asks me to make him a sandwich as well (or some of whatever it is I'm cooking), I'll go ahead and do it since I'm already there and already cooking.  I'm doing that to be nice because I love him, and I like doing nice things for him.  If he expects, insists, or demands that I cook for him or do other things for him because it's my job to "serve" him, I'm going to kick him in the balls and throw his sorry ass out.

A relationship of equals does not contain servitude.

Pretty funny to see how many people made ZERO effort to go to the website in question, and instead made a snap judgement based on the Jezebel article.

Do you know more about him than the jezebel article?

Because every good one I've been in involved lots of teasing and jokes.

Serving someone isn't some power game and sometimes you go beyond nice things for loved ones. I'm not talking about demanding jack. If the edge of your involvement in a relationship ends where doing whatever the fark you please and no more, well, your selfish. But sure, lecture me about adult relationships. Go ahead. I'm going to take your ideas seriously when assault is the answer to expecting something from you.
