Q:boxers or briefs
Q:Gumball or stick of gum?
Stick of gum.
Q:What would you do if challenged to the ALS ice bucket challenge?
Send in as much of a donation as I could scrape up, and then get a video of me dumping a bunch of ice water over my head, most likely. Maybe in my kilt? I don’t know. I’d have to think about how to make it interesting.
Q:are you straight? b/c if you are it's extremely inappropriate for you to try to mediate intra-community LGBTQ+ struggles, dude.
I’m bisexual, but thanks.
Q:"Want to go for drinks? I'm buying."
Okay, but I have to warn you…
Q:Poutine Wrestling, Kaylee and Inara are Referees.
Okay, I have to draw the line here. That’s a terrible way to treat poutine! I’d much rather just eat the poutine and hang out with Kaylee and Inara.
Q:Please do what you wish to me.
That is a tempting offer, anon. But no promises that it won’t mean that I’m going to make you put on an apron and be my assistant in the kitchen. (Regular kitchen. Not, like, a sexy kitchen.)
Q:I have a coupon for a free pizza.
I’m skeptical, anon, I’m going to need to know where this coupon is for and make certain that our interests in toppings align.
Q:Cheesecake filled, dark chocolate cupcakes, with strawberries.
You. Yes. Here. Now.
See, this is why details add so much more than just one word…
Q:7 word seduction: There's a hungry kraken in my pants
That… is somewhat disconcerting. No thanks, anon.
Q:My new secret is I have been refreshing your page for the last 20 minutes and being sad.
I’m not entirely sure why you were sad, but I’m sorry?
(If it was because you were waiting for your secret to be published, I still have a mess of them to work through. I’ll do the rest of them after I get some sleep. Sorry.)
Q:I'm in love with someone that I know I may never be able to be with in terms of a formal relationship. We share this connection but part of me knows that what we have may not grow to be something more. For now, I love and value what I have with them and appreciate every minute I spend with them
I think that’s the best way to handle it. It’s always kind of hard to tell what the future is going to be, especially with relationships. But it’s always good to enjoy what we have now, and whatever happens in the future can be dealt with then.
Q:Secret: Cishet(?) female here- sometimes I wonder if I am in fact genderqueer/genderfluid and possibly a little into girls? Sometimes I like to be pretty and girly and cute, but sometimes I like to be a lot more masculine & called by male pronouns because it makes me feel more powerful. Also I've often wondered how I would be at eating girls out (had dreams about it, too.) After years of being shamed about my body, I mostly just find women intimidating because I would feel gross in comparison.
I think this kind of goes back to what I was saying about the other anon earlier- we’re told that we’re supposed to fit into specific slots, and we aren’t allowed to consider anything that wanders outside of those boxes. Which I think ends up hurting a lot of us.
If that makes you more comfortable, anon, then I hope you can explore it.
Q:Did you hear about the UFO sightings over Huston? For a week up to it I was having dreams about being abducted by aliens and being forced to be their tour guide. It was a little too weird on timing for me and now I'm wondering if they were dreams.
That’s a little disconcerting, anon. Have you ever had dreams like that before?
Q:It's been over a year since I've had sex and talking to women terrifies me because I never want to be that guy that makes a girl uncomfortable in any way. This is exacerbated by my roommate parading a different girl through my house every night.
That’s a really hard position to be in. Really, the only way to get over that is to talk to women. Do it outside a sexual context, someone you aren’t interested in having sex with. Talk to them just like you’d have a conversation with a guy. And if you aren’t making them uncomfortable, then take confidence in that.
(If you are making them uncomfortable, then you need to do a couple things: Apologize, leave them alone, and go back over the conversation to figure out why they were uncomfortable. It’s understandable to feel guilty about it, but don’t let that guilt overwhelm you to the point where the guilt is everything.)
And then once you’ve gotten better at that? Then focus on the sex thing. But don’t look at sex as the primary goal, just treat women like human beings first.
