    I almost gagged at the cheesiness of that letter icon_razz.gif

    What I don't get is why someone would put a letter so personal on the Internet?

    I liked it. It had some interesting things so say about ego dynamics, but it isn't the only reason to marry, not by a long shot. Two people can have massive egos with enormous cannons, but they simply turn them outwards from the combined citadel of themselves as a fortress and defense against the world outside.


    I think it's more about being in mutual weirdness with each other. Good old Dr Suess.

    YourName2000 saidBut it's par for the course for Huff Post...target demographic: fat single white women between the ages of 30 and 45 with 10 tubs of Häagen-Dazs in the freezer ("for emergencies"). icon_confused.gif



    Lol I legit laughed for about ten minutes reading that. They have a couple tubs of Ben and Jerry's to in case they run out of the good stuff.
