(Jeez, God forbid you ever fart or burp or accidentally cough in her mouth.)

Sorry, Mario. Your princess is in another castle. Look for the one who likes cock.

Gotta say, I love the bluntness makes me laugh every time and while still keeping being true.
Kudos

Youch, that last bit was a bit harsh, and that's comin from a guy who generally treads all over other's feelings without a care. Sound advice from my generally lacking point of view all around this time, though I'm glad I'm not the guy with the stalker chick. Anyway, thanks for scaring off the boredom while waiting for class to start

This time around, some good, direct advice for folks. I like it.

Skitkarl is also an insult in Swedish. THE MORE YOU KNOW *rainbow*

This is my favourite advice column EVER. Also my favourite on the Escapist. =D

Zevran the Pansexual? Amazing name to put to that letter.

The last line was just brilliant. Well said.
And the girl who is the "best friend" is just downright creepy.

I thought that last one was a little bit too harsh. You've given more credence to pleas with less likelyhood of working before, that one just stung, almost as if it were you were attacking him (which you clearly were, but the shear level of bluntness, even from you, seemed excessive). It's not like anyone did anything wrong, so one or two lines saying that if she was thinking she's a lesbian, then she's probably a lesbian would have softened it (you know, like your more usual style).

Beyond that, the other two seemed pretty solid. I don't think the girl in one was using sex as a reward, but then I probably missed something, and am a little bit too tired to re-read

"People get gross, they get ugly - and yes, they get drunk - but love is about accepting all sides of a person, even the part that drinks too much Yeager and maybe starts cursing out houseplants in ancient Icelandic."

I actually laughed. Out loud.

Also, that girl did sound like a creepy stalker. Like she wasn't too far away from killing him, stuffing him, and keeping him FOREVER!

Third piece of advice was horrible
(even if funny)

My fiance was a "mostly" lesbian when I met her. Not confused about her sexuality, but preferred girls and ect. Don't give up.

I think my starting with "my fiance" shows you how anything can happen.

What is a "Pansexual"?

Not judging or anything, I just never heard the term before.

It's basically bisexual, it just certain type of bisexual.

They are attracted to people for their personalties not their bodies, they also don't have the typical type of relationships were one person becomes/takes on the role of the girl/bitch/bottom/sub and the other becomes the boy/butch/top/domme.

They do completely equal in all things relationships instead.

Lara Crigger:
Everybody gets stupid-drunk sometimes. It's not a big deal

I was genuinely surprised by this part. The first assertion, obviously, is patently untrue. I know numerous people who do not get "stupid-drunk" at any time.

I'd also disagree that it's not a big deal. I certainly wouldn't stay in a relationship with someone who drunk to excess, even if it was infrequent. I realise that many people aren't bothered by it, and that's fine, but at the very least it's unhealthy. It doesn't seem a far stretch to call it unattractive either (incoherent drunkenness != sexy).

I find it unusual that people are taking his getting drunk badly. The letter implies that they don't drink very often. It's not hard to drink too much when you don't know you're limits, and to those who are deriding him just because you personally don't drink and find it "wrong" somehow, you guys need to grow up. "Everybody" in this case, is hyperbole people. Would you rather she had said "Everybody (except those that don't drink)"? I doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. Fact is, yes, "Everybody" drinks, and of those that DO drink, yes, "Everybody" gets stupid drunk sometimes. It's not a bad thing unless you're hurting yourself or other.
And acting like an asshole when drunk is not something to be ashamed of when you don't really drink in the first place. At least, not as ashamed as this guy seems to be. Apologize for acting like a dick and move on. Drink less next time. However, there really isn't a whole lot of detail. "She found it unattractive" is a pretty vague description of the events, but come on people, if he had acted like a drunken idiot, he'd know it and not be in this confused predicament.

There is nothing unhealthy about getting a little too drunk infrequently, sometimes you lose track of what you have been drinking, sometimes a drink is made a little stronger than you anticipated, things happen and as long as getting overly drunk isn't a habit then there is nothing wrong with it.

I know bisexuals who are completely equal and don't follow specific roles.
I'm not quite sure the difference between bisexual and pansexual is, personally, it's just the way people identify them. I would say pansexual means they can be attracted to people regardless of gender, and maybe reject the idea of binary gender as well, so they prefer say "pan" (all) rather than "bi" (both).

Ah yes one of my friends was like that, she was mostly lesbian and he was willing to work through it and hope she changed. They were engaged for three years and she left him for a woman after being tired of the lie.

Not to belittle your story but yes anything can happen.

That story is nothing like mine.

She treated her homosexuality like it was wrong and needed to "work" through it and "hoped she changed". The problem was innately hers and you can see it from a mile away. You can't just cross your fingers and hope to not be yourself anymore.

Besides, better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all
