Awkward Situation of the Week: A child reacts to a photo of Lindsay's butt injury.

This Week's Questions:

  • Jim asks, "How can I talk about sports without knowing anything about them? The closest thing to a sport that I know is the debate team from high school. Now I am in my first job and people are talking about basketball and football, especially, because of the Superbowl. I don't know who anybody is and am very confused. I am left out of all the conversations at work. Any advice?"
  • Kaitlin (BF/Late 20s) asks, "Aloha everyone. I am bisexual in my late 20s and this question relates to the lesbian side of my sexuality. I am in an awkward situation with my boss. We started a sexual relationship a few weeks before Thanksgiving last year. It's a small company with only a little more than 30 people including me and her. She is known to my coworkers as kind of uptight and snobbish. I thought this in the beginning, but after landing a big account she took me out for drinks and had a few more than she should have and made a move. I was a little drunk, too, so I went with it. Here we are now, still fucking each other in the new year. I've learned more about her since then. She is more wild than uptight, but puts on this mask at work and I think it might relate to my problem. I've wanted to disclose our relationship to HR since the beginning. At first she put it off and I didn't think much of it until after the holidays when she said she wanted to keep it a secret so it's more fun. I still can't get her to agree to disclose with me. I said I'm going to have to if she doesn't but she says she'll deny it. But she said--and this is where it gets unusual for me--that she wants me to report her for sexual harassment instead. Not anything bad, but for grabbing her ass or something. She wants me to choose what it is and report it without telling her so it's a surprise and she can act realistically like she didn't know about it. This has me a little concerned. It seems like she has a fetish of letting loose in some strange ways, but I also worry she might want to break it off and is trying to do it through making me look bad with HR. Or maybe she wants to break up and fire me with cause. I like her and the sex is great. I want to believe we can make this work, but I have no idea whatsoever how I can deal with this. What do you think?"
  • Stokey (31/SM) asks, "Hey Awkward Humans, I have an online dating dilemma. I am a 31 year old man and I like young woman. I am not attracted to older woman or even women my age. I tried but I just don't like them. Perhaps my tastes will change with time but for now I am this way. I am on and OkCupid and I set the age limit to 21, but I am still getting messages from older women my age and a little younger. I do not want to tell these women they are too old every time they message me. I have contacted customer service on both web sites to ask how to enforce the age limits better, but if there is no way how can I reject these women kindly? They are fine people but I am not attracted to them in the least."
  • Raman asks, "My girlfriend always makes mistakes when she does things for me and I can't help but be very angry every time. Then she gets mad at me and we always have a fight because of this. All I want her to say is "Sorry." What's wrong with that? Why does she always get so mad? It's her mistake. Don't I have the right to be angry?"
  • Evan asks, "I really want to buy Bukkake but I live in New Zealand and as per usual, Amazon says no. Could you please let me know if you are able to ship to Christchurch, NZ and if so, what it would cost? Can pay directly to you via PayPal, Google Wallet etc. I’d be stoked if I could bust the game out at a normally boring ‘couples dinner & games night’ soon. My girlfriend’s friend’s boyfriends are mainly steak and potato jock-types and I would like to make them uncomfortable for once. :)"
