foo monkey: gunther_bumpass: Yeah I'm down to like "maybe I should write to that kid I had a crush on in 5th grade".

This lockdown has got to stop soon.

I'm having dreams about a girl from seventh grade.


You mean, from when you were in seventh grade, right? Not like, some current seventh grader.

Gramma: This is really easy advice for me to follow.  I haven't dated since the 70s. Everyone that I dated is now deceased.

Too late.

We've exchanged sourdough cultures and mask-making materials. Pretty sure under the new rules that means we're married now.

Yikes.

Recycle cans and bottles and you're some sort of hero, but do it with sex partners and you're some sort of asshole.

etoof: realmolo: forgotmydamnusername: realmolo: BigSquibowski: Angry biatch says what now?

She isn't angry. She's giving good advice.

Once you "break-up", don't contact the other person. It's that simple. The ONLY reason to contact an ex is to make *yourself* feel better. And making *you* feel better isn't your ex's problem. And vice-versa. It's over. Learn from it and move on, but don't revisit it.

Time heals all wounds. Don't re-open them.

/everybody does it once, hopefully they learn their lesson

Nope. Money, if there end up being child support payments necessary, or some sort of illiquid assets to divide.

Well, yes. Divorce is different. I wasn't really thinking about ex-spouses.

But *even then*...unless kids are involved, you shouldn't be talking to them unless absolutely necessary. And better to have the lawyers do it.

What is she has all the classy dildos? Those aren't cheap, and I want them back.

realmolo: Time heals all wounds.


No it doesn't. Don't spread this bullshiat. Some wounds just don't heal and the expectation that they just will, eventually, hurts people. A person stays open, raw, and vulnerable.  I agree with your sentiment and your point, but not this specific phrase.  The time heals lie is what makes people say things like "you've grieved long enough" or "why aren't you happy yet" or "it was a long time ago, it shouldn't matter now".  It makes people hate themselves for not being "over" something yet.  If time healed all wounds there wouldn't be a mental health field at all.

Opening with an apology after ghosting years ago would be weird as fark. Better to start with the basics. Pretend you've been thrust years into the future due to a freak static electricity and whippets anomaly. 'What year is this? Wow phones got bigger that's strange I figured they would keep getting smaller! Did face masks become a new fashion trend? I've met the physical manifestation of time, it's a triangle. Anyways, you up?'

The can repave the road, repaint the lines, add snazzy new reflectors, some new landscaping, new street lights. But in the end, the road still goes the same way to the same place.

Well, most do. Some are realigned, truncated, or extended.

But not yours.
