    Relationship FAQ

    Q: my gf/bf broke up with me and I think I might be able to get them back. should I try?
    A: No

    Q: But what if [insert any reason here]?
    A: Still No

    Q: Does age matter?
    A: Yes and no. Age is important only in its tie to experiance. A 21 y/o who has lived on his own since he was 18 and who has a steady job with some sort of future (not Mickey D's or the supermarket) will be more ready to commit than a 27 y/o still living at home or working in a dead end job/bouncing around jobs. If you are still in highschool don't even discuss marriage. You are not ready.

    Q: I think I'm ready.
    A: No you're not

    Q: Yes I am, this is true love.
    A: No you're not

    Q: Does money matter?
    A: Yes, but not in the sense of how much the other person has. Look at spending habits. Do they eat out a lot? Do they buy things they can't afford? Do they have credit card debt? Are they on drugs? If the answer to any of those questions is yes use caution. Spending habits are where people become broke. Being broke sucks. If you marry someone who is broke you will likely end up broke.

    Q: All you need is love, right?
    A: No, you need commitment. No matter how much you love some one, if you marry you will go through periods where you can't stand the other person. You won't even like them. Commitment is what gets you through those times. Sign a pre-nup too.

    Q: We don't need a pre_nup because we won't ever divorce.
    A: There are two possibilities:
    1. You get divorced. The pre-nup makes it less messy since you agreed on everything before you hated each other.
    2. You don't get divorced. The pre-nup sits in a safety deposit box or somewhere and never bothers anyone.​
    So you either win or you tie. Isn't that a better deal then tie or lose?

    Q: I want to get engaged but I can't get married for 4 years. Is this a problem?
    A: Yes. Engagements are supposed to be fairly short. They give you time to plan the wedding. If you are really "meant to be together" waiting to get get engaged won't hurt. I'd plan on a 6-12 month engagement.

    Q: Haven't you had some bad relationships?
    A: Yes, I wasn't following my own advice.

    Any other questions send them to doctor love (dantose) and I will answer them.

    What if I've secretly fallen in love with you, dantose, and want nothing more than to bear your children in my womb? Or how about the fact that Koffing totally turns me on, and I feel like making out with th everytime I see his avatar? I REALLY DO LOVE YOU! KISS MEH!

    Whoa, whoa, whoa...Every answer is supposed to be:
    Call her a cheating hussy and walk out in a pissy fit!

    Breach of tradition, I blame Durf!

    A: I would say attempt to "ban yourself" again. Also, increasing shower frequency and deodorant may allow you to change your name to "notsmelly"

    piff My friend we are the only traditionalists left. I was just about to post the same thing you did. Not to mention I am the only one who still greets people with a pants-ing and a solid punch to the throat.

    Nice! Can we get a sticky?

    I do have an issue with:

    If I don't trust her enough not to get a pre-nup, I won't get married in the first place.

    I have a a question for the doctor; after getting intiment with a girl I love I broke out in a full body rash, is this a sign that she and I are soul mates?

    A controversial issue, but I would agree with close to everything.

    What about,

    Q: Should I take the advice of a bunch of strangers in an internet forum or in me day to day dealings with reality?

    A: Hell no.

    And the corollary

    Q: Should I ask for relationship advice from of a bunch of strangers in an internet forum or in my day to day dealings with reality?

    A: Double hell no.

    Rule of thumb: Anytime you have a question about a relationship, the answer is no. This is because if you have to ask a question of us, you shouldn't be in a relationship in the first place.

    Good job, Dantose. 'Boosh did something like this a while back, but it got lost in the reset.

    Great! trust her all you want, get a pre-nup anyway. if getting the pre-nup causes problems then the relationship wasn't as good as you thought.
