Sugar & Spice advice column: January 22, 2016 Edition

By in Distractions

Q: I am in love with my best friend’s brother but I don’t know how to tell my friend. I really want to be able to make this happen with him and I am pretty sure he feels the same. The only thing is that I don’t think my friend would be too happy with that. Should I just tell her or keep my feelings to myself, like I’ve been doing for the past three years? — Irena

Sugar: In my experience, keeping things to yourself is usually the way to go! No need to bother other people with your feelings. Just hold it in and I’m sure he’ll still find somebody great!

Spice: Three years? Sounds like you’ve already invested, so why not go in it for the long haul?

Q: Hey Sugar and Spice! My girlfriend takes “Netflix and Chill” a bit too literally. I don’t mean that all we do is watch Netflix. I mean when we’re getting down and dirty, she refuses to turn the TV off. Apparently Brooklyn Nine-Nine helps her get off. How do I tell her that I would rather not listen to Andy Samberg during my vinegar strokes? — Thomas

Sugar: Have you communicated your thoughts to your girlfriend? We learned in elementary school that whenever we needed to talk to someone we should approach the situation with “I” sentences in order to assert yourself in a non-threatening way to the situation. Try something like, “I feel sad when you watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine instead of focusing on me during our love making.”

Spice: You lost me when you indicated that listening to Andy Samberg’s nasal rat voice wouldn’t help you climax even harder.
