love stinks


** Click here for Episode 161 **

It hasn’t been a happy New Year for all of TeamAMT, for instance poor old Anon:

I’ve just told the love of my life that I am happy being her friend, and that I’m OK with her dating another guy simply because I want her to be happy. It didn’t end like in the movies where she finds new feelings for me and I carry her off into the sunset for a good shagging; she’s in fact telling him that she would love to go out with him as I write this.

I’ve tried to take solace in my decision saying it was the nicest thing to do and that I’ll be able to look back on this and be proud, but right now that isn’t cheering me up. I started popping a load of bubble wrap to take my mind off it, but I’ve run out.

So answer me this: how can I make the soul-crushing pain go away and cheer myself up in the process?

Help a heartbroken chap out, readers: go to the comments and tell the man what to do when the bubble wrap runs out.

Katie also has problems in the romance department:

I may have done something truly terrible.

So Nick has been my best friend since we were 12, we’re both 20 now and 3 nights ago we had sex. It wasn’t horrifically awkward but it wasn’t the most incredible event of my life. We’ve pseudo-casually talked about it and made awkwardly amusing compliments about each other’s ‘prowess’ but I can’t help but worry that I’ve ruined everything.

I know that When Harry Met Sally dealt with this before I was born and that it probably wasn’t the best post-pub home for Christmas idea but what’s done is done and now I need someone to tell me that everything will be ok.

Everything will be ok. There, are you better now?

    Hello from a frequent listener in Washington DC.

    In the last episode I listened to, you discussed various ways of attaching those computer wrist pads to your wrists. At least that’s what I think you were talking about.

    Here is a link to a company that sells these:

    I bought one in a stationery store and it is better than anything else I’ve tried. Plus, it is easy to travel with. (It is easy lose as well.)

    Thank you for the wonderful podcasts.
