Turgid prose is what led to the disconnectedness and the adulterationist behaviors on the part(s) of those parties of which we have identified as participants in the aforementioned relationship about which we and the English language are being tortured to our deaths with.

Turgid fucking prose, my friends. Don't let it destroy your family too.

What elenchos said. I.e., ATH would have a lot better luck with the ladies if he didn't sound like Frasier Crane.

They should set up a scene. "Run across" each other somewhere, pretend they don't know each other, flirt, go to a bar, date "secretly", and "go back to my place". All the spice of adultery plus the benefits of reconnecting their marriage, etc. etc.

Or what Poe said. Either way.

@7 for the insightful win, at least until the cops arrest the spurned babysitter who guns down the entire family.

As a rocket scientist, I can say with authority that the solution is to try having sex and reconnecting with eachother. It just might work. Fnarf actually had a decent suggestion for something specific to try. Unless the author is trying to say without saying that although he is hot stuff, his wife is nasty and that's why he just can't get it up.

there is nothing in that letter but pure bullshit. There is no existing world that person is describing.

There's a dating service for people who want to have affairs. He should start there.

He didn't seem to have any trouble finding someone to cheat on his wife with the first time. Why not try the same technique?

Or perhaps a courtesan? (oh wait, they're called escorts now.)

I DON'T UNDERSTAND I'M LIKE THE PERFECT CATCH YET I CANNOT FIND ANY WOMEN.

Oh wait, that's right, I'm emailing Dan Savage for run-of-the-mill dating advice and am therefore a social retard.
