Now slate wants me to pay money for a podcast about made up stories and FARK greenlights an ad about a podcast without a single comment until mine.

Great job guys making this totalfark subscription really worthwhile.

Dear Slate,

As part of an experiment with ethical non-monogamy, my wife let me go on a "date" with my ex-girlfriend. My wife is a my best friend and a wonderful partner, but my ex-girlfriend is smokin' hot and absolutely crazy between the sheets.

What? Oh, I don't want advice about anything, I just needed to brag to somebody, and I can't brag to my wife because she's a little jealous.

Sincerely,
Best of Both Worlds

Well, so long as it's made up, we can just do it ourselves.

Dear Slate,

My Husband Went on a Date With His Ex-Girlfriend.  In retrospect, this may have been a mistake. I found out that they weren't really going on a date with just themselves, but were meeting for a tryst with another man. I heard a lot of butt stuff was involved!  Then I found out that the other man was my dad!  I don't really need advice, I just needed to brag to somebody. I can't brag to my mom because she's a little jealous.

Sincerely,
Best of Both Worlds

I think the last thing I want to do is go on a date with any of my ex-girlfriends.  I remember why I'm not with them anymore.

In this same vein, the 2nd to last thing I want to do is have an affair.  I barely get to see my friends.  I can't remember the last time I went golfing, or sat at a bar in the afternoon and had a drink, or had a day to myself.  If I had any time out of the house, the last thing I'm going to do is muck it up with another relationship.

Even dumber are these guys who have 2nd families.  Like businessmen who go on the road and spend time with their other family.  When I'm on the road, I'm relaxing in my hotel room and going to bed before 10.  You want to spend time with another family?  Are you crazy?

Because of the Paywall, i think we should make this fake story a group effort.  Let's just add one new anicdote/revision at a time:

I can't brag to my mom because she's the one who filmed everything.  Now she's suggesting I use a website to build a subscriber base, should I use Only Fans or Patreon.

This was literally an episode of Boy Meets World. Corey asked Topanga if he could go on a date with Lauren (Linda Cardelinni, hubba hubba) to test his feelings. Or something. It tore them apart.

Pay attention people. Smh.

Never was into Boy Meets World, but I do keep up with Rachel's spin-off series.

My wife traveled for a long weekend to visit an ex a few years ago. So, more than "a date" in some ways, but less in that she wasn't curious about whether there was still a spark. It really all felt like what I think the kids call a "flex" for me. I had no worries about what they might do or fallout. I'm a way better catch than I was back when she picked me over him the first time. I would have flipped the fark out back then, but understand now that is a pretty clear symptom of terrible insecurity. Which, fyi, does not seem to be attractive to anyone.

My ex who is married to some guy traveled to visit me over a long weekend a few years ago.  We had sex the whole time.

Subtle. I like it

Yeah, they're my ex for a reason. I don't care if they were smoking crazy hot sex fiends in the bedroom, it just ain't worth the headache. Keep in mind we have an open marriage so my wife doesn't care if I get some on the side.

Dear Slate,

I paid to listen to your podcast and as a consequence my wife left me for her ex. Wat do?

I've never voluntarily sat at a bar for any reason besides the hope that sex would result from it.

inglixthemad: Yeah, they're my ex for a reason.


People always say this, and it works just fine if you were the one who dumped them. Clearly you've already  figured you aren't interested and you know why you aren't interested.

However, the picture is rather different if they're an ex solely because they dumped you, and you've been holding a candle ever since. The potential for a slow motion train-wreck disaster there is huge.

No, and maybe I got lucky, but k learned what my uncle told me very well: "SUCK IT UP BUTTERCUP, SHE AIN'T INTERESTED SO FIND SOMEONE ELSE!"

Yes, he was a DI. How did you know?

He was a card really, a nice guy unless he was being paid to yell at you. He was the one who imparted: "Who cares if they break up with you? There's a lot of other potential partners out there, like millions, kid."
