My boyfriend just scored his first big promotion at work, and has spoiled himself with a new Rolex. I was thrilled at first, until he started telling everyone about it — I find this really flashy and materialistic. How do I get him to tone it down? Easy – forget the soft approach of asking him whether he’s aware of his behaviour. Rather, insert the word ‘Rolex’ into your everyday conversation with him as often as possible: “Hi,
Ahoney, how was your Rolex day?”, “What do you feel like for Rolex dinner tonight?” and so on. When he asks what the hell you’re doing, tell him this is the way he’s sounded ever since he got his watch, and that he needs to wind things back a smidge.
QI was on a date with a new guy at a comedy club. One of the comedians started to poke fun at Malays by saying they receive preferential treatment from the government. I found these observations unappealing but my date laughed away! And get this: He’s Malay! What should I make out of this?
ACLEO contributor David Smiedt has been betraying his sex in print for over 10 years. He will tell you things your man won’t. taught us anything, it’s that this type of entertainment is very subjective. He was having a good time without jumping on the offence train. But this doesn’t necessarily mean he endorses the view. Just because it didn’t float your boat, there’s no need to read anything into his behaviour. It wouldn’t be our cup of tea either, TBH.
Yes, I like it rough!
