When your significant other agreed to stop watching porn early in your relationship, you were relieved. But now that you’ve been dating for a few years and everything’s otherwise great, you can’t shake the feeling that they haven’t quite given up porn and it feels like a betrayal. Is porn cheating? On this Feedback Friday, we do our best to get some perspective on this and much more!
And in case you didn’t already know it, Jordan Harbinger (@JordanHarbinger) and Jason DeFillippo (@jpdef) banter and take your comments and questions for Feedback Friday right here every week! If you want us to answer your question, register your feedback, or tell your story on one of our upcoming weekly Feedback Friday episodes, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. Now let’s dive in!
On This Week’s Feedback Friday, We Discuss:
- Due to your own complicated history, your significant other’s possible consumption of porn feels like betrayal. Is there a way to understand it from a different perspective?
- You spent six years training for your dream job only to be disqualified on a technicality. How can you motivate yourself to endure a similar time sink for another career when you know you’re not getting any younger?
- As a business owner, how do you deal with the deadbeats who take advantage of your good nature and don’t respect what you do enough to give you fair value for your services?
- How do people transition from the period of time they need to get experience in their field to the time they get paid for making use of that experience?
- Your significant other wants you to list the names of the people you’ve dated and slept with in the past, and then delete them all from your social media. Is this at all reasonable?
- You assumed you were having an email conversation regarding a business proposition with a man you know named Sam, but it turns out it’s been with a woman named Sam whom you don’t remember meeting. Now what?
- You’re normally a great conversationalist, but when it comes to interacting with a superior, you find yourself worrying too much about accidentally saying the wrong thing and the conversation ends up stagnating. How might you overcome this?
- Life Pro Tip: Looking to cut the cord but dreading the inevitable call to the cable company where they badger you into not leaving? Tell them you’re moving out of state where they don’t offer services. Your cancellation call will take a fraction of the time.
