the sound of teenage girls laughing near you when you’re by yourself is literally the most terrifying thing a person can experience

Anonymous: Hey Melanie - firstly, love the blog! I just wanted to ask, do you think it's okay to tell an ex that you were faking it after you broke up? He dumped me via text and I'm sad about it but I think he should know that he's not all that!


Hi! Cheers! I don’t know if you’re referring to faking it emotionally or during sexual stuff but I’m gonna assume the latter because it’s slightly funnier and easier to respond to. Anyway, I’m gonna say faking it in the first place is a terrible idea but (full disclosure warning) I do it anyway because I feel bad. Which is stupid! And ridiculously unhealthy. It’s so funny because I contemplated doing this as well with an ex, but then I thought to myself “is the satisfaction of me telling him he sucks at sex, going to balance out the lack of satisfaction I got in bed?” and the answer was no. Especially because they’ll either a) think you’re lying to get back at them or b) think you’re just petty for bringing it up now instead of during your relationship. So I’m gonna say final answer is DON’T DO IT. Just talk to your friends about his weak sex moves and laugh. Melanie awaaaayyyy!
