COUPLES COSTUME EDITION!
I’ve received several different emails about Halloween related relationship problems. Instead of replying to all of them you should dump your stick in a mud bf/gf because anyone who doesn’t like Halloween is OBVIOUSLY not worthy of your time or committed relationship, I will just give you one of them right now for you to weigh in on.
This isn’t really an email about breaking up with my guy if he doesn’t comply, more like, how can I make that happen?
I really want to go out dressed up together – something easy – and he is absolutely against it.
What do you think?
Hmmm.. Well Emily, if he doesn’t want to dress up, he doesn’t want to dress up.. there’s no point in bringing him along if he’s going to be miserable the whole night. I’d sooner leave him behind.. BUT the real question is does he not want to dress up OR does he not want to dress up in a COUPLES COSTUME?
So I ask you,
When you’re in a couple, do you like to coordinate Halloween costumes with your partner? If so, is it something that new couples can do, or should it be saved only until after you’ve met each other’s parents and perhaps even promised eternal love?
Or does all that coordination make you want to gag on a spoon?
Let me know!
This was just too funny not to share.
You’re going to read this question and be like, WTF Katy? This is so ridic.
BUT, I just read Magic Johnson is being sued by a former flight attendant who says he forced her to “regularly squeeze his red vines to make sure they were soft.”
HAHA that is so insane, right? I mean I love red vines, but sadly I must squeeze my own.
More on that HERE.
Now take that and compare it to the infamous P Diddy “Making the Band” cheesecake incident.
NOW WHO WOULD YOU RATHER WORK FOR?!
I could have sworn we’ve tackled a similar issue before, but no matter. With the debate last night and election season under way (early voting started yesterday my friends), here’s this week’s SIDTA email from Ryan.
Taryn and I have been dating for two years. I’m a conservative while she’s a self-proclaimed “bleeding-heart liberal.” And as the presidential campaign gets into full swing, I’m wondering if this is an issue we can overcome.
Our friends all know we don’t see eye to eye on many subjects, and it’s like the elephant in the room wherever we go. AND sometimes the things she says makes me question not only our compatibility, but her sanity.
Do you have any tips for surviving this election? Or is this hopeless?
FIRST OF ALL that would be a deal breaker for me – I could never date someone with vastly different views from my own.. BUT THAT’S ME. I think politics are very important.
I wouldn’t waste my time dating outside my political party.. That’s like ASKING to ruin a relationship.
But maybe you’ve been here before?
Can you date across the aisle?! Or should Ryan jump ship?

Ryan needs to grow up. Your opinion is just that, an opinion. If anything, she should dump that jerk.
as a gay, liberal, atheist, I know I can’t date across the aisle.
My best friend is VERY liberal and I’m conservative. I’ve come to realize that no matter if we don’t see eye to eye on things, I love her for her and her friendship. If she makes him happy other than political views, I say keep her around. I do understand a relationship is different than a friendship, but I feel if he is truly happy they can overcome it.
Oh helll no! Disaster n will never do it again!
No you cannot date someone who is a different political party, especially a liberal. I grew up very conservative and value hard work ethic. If he’s not conservative he’s out. My man is going to work and is not going to live off the government!
Yes absolutely!..politics has no effect
intellectual people will see this as a problem. people who want to have legitimate discussions about the future of this world, those who care about current events, those are the people that say dump him. the ones who said it doesn’t matter are probably morons.
My girlfriend and I see eye to eye on politics. Given, we are a gay couple lol.
speaking of politics, where do YOU fall Katy?
give it up ryan. dems and rep are like night and day
political affiliation doesn’t matter as long as they’re open minded and are willing to understand your views and not put you down because of them
I am an ant, not a grasshopper! Democrats are grasshoppers!
I knew it, you’re a republican aren’t you?
Argue politics all evening and then have great make up sex. You two are living the American dream.
my husband and I have different beliefs. it’s all about respect.
you could just avoid talking about politics?
THERE’S NO WAY THIS CAN WORK. POLITICS ARE EVERYTHING PEOPLE! i’m with you girl, i’d never date someone who didn’t agree with me – useless relationship!
just turn off the tv until november 7?
Halloween is just around the corner.
You know what that means? Prepare to be bombarded with Halloween’s 1 – 234023842308 (or whatever number they’re on now), NighmareS on Elm Street, and Friday the 13ths on every cable network!! In fact, AMC has got a marathon on RIGHT NOW.
[Because in classic horror movie style, once a good villain is created, you ride out the franchise until the audience is exhausted with the plot!]
So today’s question deals with some of our favorite Hollywood psychos.
** I SHOULD ADD: ..and probably caught by **
Jason has a better theme song. AND at least you’d have a fighting chance against him.. with Freddy as soon as you hit the sack, you’re toast.
Which would YOU rather?
We haven’t done one of these in a while, so let’s tackle Kaylnn’s email today.
You know the drill – I present you with an issue sent to me from a listener, and as an unbiased third party, you answer!
I have been seeing this guy “JOHN” for a few weeks. We have a lot of fun together, but I can’t stand when he pays for a nice meal. It’s not because I don’t like to be treated or anything, HE JUST NEVER TIPS WELL. I’m starting to get embarrassed by his behavior towards servers and sometimes have even found myself sneaking a few extra dollars under my plate.
In all other aspects, he is such a catch!
What should I do?! SIDT?
OH MAN. TALK ABOUT ONE OF MY PET PEEVES. I HATE PEOPLE WHO DON’T TIP SO MUCH, I’M STUCK IN CAPS LOCK.
Everyone has come across a few servers that aren’t up to Christopher’s professional standards, but barring any rudeness or serious issue with your dining experience, this is someone’s pay check!
I too would be embarrassed to go out with a guy who seemed a bit stingy once the check was dropped off.
Now, I’m not sure if this is just because I was once a server AND bartender myself, but I know that sometimes, you’re just having an off night. And while I understand a tip should reflect the quality of service, if you feel compelled to slip a few extra bucks to compensate a cheapskate – DUMP HIM.
What do you think? Am I wrong?
Comment below or text me to 23504.
Some texts from 23504:
Dumping a guy just because he cannot tip well is totally immature. There are other reasons to dump a guy but this is very lame..it’s better to communicate. Not every one is good with tips. Some people have not worked as a server so they don’t really know how important it is..
DUMP HIM. People who treat their servers like trash are going to eventually treat you like trash
Has she confronted him about this? Some people just don’t get the tipping thing until someone presents the rules and reasons. If she has and he doesn’t care I’m for dumping… Shows he doesn’t care much about respecting others.
If he’s not nice to the waitress, he’s NOT NICE!!! You could always offer to leave the tip, thats what i do when my boyfriend taks me to dinner. I would ask him about it and if he doesn’t see the error in his ways DUMP HIM.
If the service is bad, then it’s no problem. If we’re just talking about a busy place and an overworked waitress, then there’s a problem.
Is he just bad at math or doesn’t know what’s appropriate?
i don’t really care…. he’s not cheap if he’s paying 4 it!!! Lol! don’t worry abt it!
Not cool I was a server. And I will tell my bf to leave a better tip
DUDE. We make 2.15 an hour. Only a #*&$ continuously stiffs. Dump that guy.
Definitely need to give him a chance to explain himself. If he gets defensive, then you have your answer. Also, if you feel like you can’t talk to him about things that bother you, he probably isn’t the right guy anyways.
I’m a true believer u tip based on the kind of service u get.I waited tables and I was trained u bring every thing to the customer without having to ask like napkins and refills when there glass are half way and I also there food unlike today some one else bring s ur food not ur server.Todays waiters won’t even pick up your plates when ur done they also have some one Else who dose that for them
Not tipping at all is a bit cheap. I would myself tip %10 for bad service, but never NOTHING. Those people live on their tips!
What if my bf OVER tips?
just offer to split the bill, he pays tab – you pay tip. win win!
yes he’s cheap–you should of tipped just to be a B___tch,maybe he would get the point-mabe the waitress was new on the job–he should take things into consideration–that is all their pay is.
I think a guy should at least tip a couple dollar even if the service sucks. that’s shows a lot of class, especially on a date. Him not tipping can be a sign of his stingyness.
