Anonymous asked: I read your 'Go after her. Fuck, don't sit there and wait...' post. There's a girl I like. She might like me. I have been 'waiting for a sign' but I really want to tell her that I like her, but I am literally the worlds worst person when it comes to doing stuff like this. Any suggestions? In an ideal world how would you like someone who had a crush on you to tell you?

As One Does
Oh, you know, just spending the morning before work washing my hands with bleach to get out the words “Fuck You” that I scribbled with a pen on my fingers after two glasses of wine at an East Village bar last night.

I don’t know if I’m ready to get rid of it all though - the pretty pictures, the meaningless images. I don’t know how my words would react to the loneliness. I’ve been getting an idea to start fresh, but my sentimental side always wins out. I guess I...

Since I've Been Single - A Post-Valentine's Day...
I have been technically single for a little less than six months now. In that period of time: I have been propositioned for a threesome with my best friend. Two different men who were “working on their novels” stopped calling me back. I discovered that meeting for drinks is always preferable to meeting for coffee. A hipster that I thought seemed like a “really nice guy”...
