"It's interesting to come back here after all this time. It is true that time heals alot. What I do notice that hasn't changed are the hijackers on this site. David"

Eric replied to David Arbelaez's discussion Retroactive jealousy
"I wonder if you didn't have an idea that she was 'experienced' prior to your marriage. Is it the exact number of partners that bothers you the most? 10, 20 or 25, how were things between you before you heard the magic…"

"Alright there David,   If you led a similar path before to your wife then I doubt it would be an issue for that you couldn't come to terms with.   I made a pact with myself what to me is acceptable in a fiancee' history…"

Todd Serveto replied to David Arbelaez's discussion Retroactive jealousy
"David---this topic comes up now and again, and I'm going to tell you what I honestly believe, even though it might not be popular in our current cultural climate. Sex is like fire--contained within its proper boundaries, it's…"

Titus Techera replied to David Arbelaez's discussion Retroactive jealousy
"Yeah, so far as I know, Mexicans are rather Catholic and lean conservative, but I've seen the occasional Mexican hipster girl. If anything redeems the forlorn species of hipsters, that kind of girl will. But I digress. Your kids are going to be…"

"Shane, I opposed conservative to promiscuous, which is clever, if obvious. -- Everyone is a liberal in the picture. But when sex and drama start, liberalism disappears: it is useless. Shame is the word you are looking for when you talk of chastity…"

Jacob Bauer replied to David Arbelaez's discussion Retroactive jealousy
"I hope it's a good prize.   My girlfriend's family is Mexican, so no surprises there as far as religious affiliation goes. No moralizing other than some occasional mumbo-jumbo about how lonely and sad a world without God…"

Shane replied to David Arbelaez's discussion Retroactive jealousy
"Conservatism is not used here in the political sense, but rather the vanilla flavored ice cream sense, do we need mint chocolate chip to live a flavor filled life?  Nope.  But, I like it.    That Alyssa does not try to persuade…"

Titus Techera replied to David Arbelaez's discussion Retroactive jealousy
"I agree, the man turned coward. But I do not agree that his conservatism was a problem, because I do not agree that her promiscuity was a good thing. Had she been a happy woman, then Holden might have felt like her love or company or example would…"

Shane replied to David Arbelaez's discussion Retroactive jealousy
"I agree, there is no character arch.  But then, such is life.  Which makes for poor story, but powerful example.  We either learn, or not, from our experiences.  Yet it is our experiences which make us who we are.  Even if…"

Shane replied to Joe Metal's discussion A question about gym etiquette
"Yeah, if you're doing supersets like that it's ok to keep the equipment you need on hand. So you could set up two bars at your bench, one for rows and one for press. Or a couple sets of dumbbells. Just re-rack your weights when finished.…"
