O.K....I have one for you...A friend of mine was dating this married guy. He and his wife had been separated for 2 years and they have a 5yr. old son. The guy is "in between" apartments and staying with my friend regularly. His wife calls him every morning, my friend found this offensive. This is a 2 parter...part one, he asks to borrow some money from the g/f to take the wife out to dinner...should she loan him the money? Part 2 When she complains to him about his wife calling he tells her that she is the mother of his son and she can call him whenever she wants and he will always meet with her when she thinks they need to talk, and if my friend doesn't like that she can take a hike. Should she take a hike?

Believe it or not these questions were posed to me by my friend.

Question should be, "How do I know if a guy is a total douche?" and then you relate sharon's story.

I think if her friend still doesn't leave him, she never will.

I love how guys like that always seem to have a girlfriend, but I always have a buddy or two who are legitimate good guys and can't get a date to save their lives.

The ultimate answer is that, when it comes to choosing a good boyfriend, women are retarded.

I wish I could say I have never fallen for a total freaking psycho hosebeast, but I can't.

The problem with jerks is they don't reveal their jerkiness right away. They reel you in with sweetness and seeming perfection for a few weeks. Then they slowly ease up the jerkiness, frog in boiling water style. Before you know it, you are lending money for said jerk to take their ex out to dinner.

It's about falling in love with an image in your head more than an actual person. It happens to everybody at some point, I reckon.

...or when said hosebeast starts stalking you. That's a really nice turn in the relationship.

But seriously, what is a good way to meet people? Bars suck, Match and other online services are a disaster, have no family in the area to look out for me & set me up with anyone, and friends have failed me miserably. So what do you do? How do you get all those "good guys" and "nice girls" out there to meet?

Honestly (regrettably), I have no freaking clue. I am dating quite possibly the awesomest girl in the world (insanely, is-this-too-good-to-be-true? awesome), and I met her by sheer dumb luck. I mean, she lives about 200 miles away and she just happened to visit here a bunch of times in one month last winter.

The Fox Valley is a really hard place to meet people if you aren't a complete dullard and hate going to places like The Bar. (Which I guess is redundant.) My best advice? Find friends in bigger cities and go fishing there.

I can do you one better on my friend. She did NOT break up with him...he broke it off because she wasn't comfortable with her feelings toward his wife.

So then...this SAME girl teaches at a two year tech school. I will pose this as a question, but you will be able to figure out what happen...
Dear Steve,
I am a teacher in a 2 year institution and one of my students has a crush on me. He has left me text messages about how he gets "hard" in class watching me teach and how he is suffering from "blue balls" from the times that we have talked. Should I go ahead and go out with him even though he is my student? It is obvious he finds me attractive. Please let me know before the semester ends.
(honestly...this one friend is driving me nuts...)

wait did the blue balls reference push her closer to saying yes or saying no... sounds like this will work out real well.
