"The best roommate I've ever had was a girl. The worst roommate I've ever had was another girl. But how good of a roommate someone is has nothing to do with their sex, the way I see it.There's nothing wrong about cohabitation, in my…"

"Sorry, but "almost never "to the death""? So... sometimes to the death? You're actually claiming that there are instances where two men should try to kill each other in an organized way to see who was in the right?
"My internet connection is pretty slow so I can't see all the pictures, so all I'm going to say is that your pants seem to be too long. Ultimately, where the pant breaks (folds in on itself) is up to you, in that to a certain extent…"

"Perhaps I'm not the exception. No one can predict the future, admittedly. But I still don't accept as truth the notion that every single last ex friendship ever in the entire world is an illegitimate one. "
"No, it has become painfully and almost humorously obvious to us that we would never, ever work as romantic partners again. In fact, it shouldn't have happened in the first place - I've come to realize that she is much more of a…"
"I don't think it's necessarily fair to generalize all "ex friendships" as being outrageous. Obviously the majority of exes cannot work as just friends, but I can honestly say that my best female friend (other than my current…"
"I don't think there's anything wrong with exes going out for dinner, especially if they are "foodies" and if they've remained good friends after the breakup. However, it certainly becomes a problem if you think she…"
