Fun-Sized Advice

On fun-sized advice

Life is much harder than I ever expected.
You’re confusing your life with your circumstances.

Why does self loathing make me feel better?
You’re confusing self-loathing with self-pity.

I broke up with him. I wanted this. Why do I feel so devastated that my ex-boyfriend has found a new lover?
Because you’re the type who refers to the person fucking your ex as his “lover.”

Is it racist when someone says “I’m only attracted to white guys,” or “I would never date an Indian guy?”
Yes. Those statements are both overtly racist.

What does it mean when a guy says he doesn’t know what he wants?
It means he doesn’t want you.

Planning a trip to palm springs. Anything I should definitely plan on doing while I am there?
There is literally nothing to do in Palm Springs except shop, get shitfaced by a pool, or cheat on your spouse. Plan accordingly.

Why do I feel better writing about my life through a third person novel versus a first person memoir?
Because you, the person writing about your life, are a different person than her, the person who lived it.

why have you deliberately chosen not to marry money? what if you happen to fall in love with someone wealthy?
Marrying money is a long-form act of prostitution. That’s fine, but I don’t have the patience or the stamina for that much bullshit. Falling in love with someone wealthy is different, but still comes with its own unique complications. (It’s so adorable when you kids equate marriage with falling in love.)

Coquette, have you ever considered opening a dating website? I think the kind of people who frequent this blog could be great friends in real life. Bit of a cringe idea maybe, just throwing it out there. Peace.
Not a cringe idea. Kind of interesting, actually. If this is something you all would be interested in, leave a comment and let me know your thoughts.

      I’m still kicking the idea around. Now that I’m on a new platform, I might be able to put together some kind of mini social network for Dear Coquette readers. We’ll see!

    Second time reading through the archives. Love you to bits! And you should totally make some sort of social/dating site 😉
