Chat: "This house is clean."

As we move through cities, towns, landscapes, some of these places become "haunted" by lost loves, great moments gone by, pain endured while there, and so many other things. Tell me about your hauntings and whether or not the ghosts are still there. [more inside]

Dear AskMe, My Husband's T-Shirt Has Llama Stains.

My husband and I are both MeFites - he introduced me! - and we often wonder about other couples or close friends who reference Metafilter in various 'inside joke'-type ways. Do you do this? And how? [more inside]

Staying in bad relationships

A few months ago, there was a post on the blue, linking to a question on captainawkward.com. It was about young women who stay in bad relationships. I can't find it. [more inside]

Looking for an old question about relationship experiences...

I have been combing through AskMeFi looking for a question that I remember reading approx. 2 years ago about relationships. I cannot find it here or in google search. I am curious if anyone has bookmarked or favorited it and will happen to remember. [more inside]

I think I might be my own grandpaw, or six degrees of Brandon Blatcher

I was wondering, has anyone has ever charted the tangled web of linked to/by relationships, or if that was even feasible with datamuckery? It's approaching four years since the great enspousening, and I was wondering how we are all interconnected. [more inside]

How Blogger Begat the Push-Button Publishing Revolution

This Neat Flowchart from over at Wired didn't seem like enough for a FPP but it's really interesting to see what all the Pyra Labs people have done since 1998, including starting things like Metafilter. "At the close of 1998, there were 23 known weblogs on the Internet. A year later there were tens of thousands. What changed? Pyra Labs launched Blogger, the online tool that gave push-button publishing to the people. It was a revolutionary web product made by a revolutionary web of people who went on to build much of the modern net. Here’s how Pyra propagated."

Lead me to my people.

"A while back there was a thread in which people described their awkward obliviousness to social or sexual advances. There were accounts like "She said "Would you like me to take my shirt off?" and I replied "No, I think it looks nice."" "
Anyone able to identify the post?

Has there ever been a relationship thread that didn't overwhelmingly swing "DTMFA?"

... and then she kissed him

This AskMe question had all the hallmarks of a frustrating unresolved drama in-the-making ... but it's suddenly got a happy ending!

A couple minor feature requests fulfilled

Slight preferences tweaks: birthday (year optional) and relationship status (datingfilter!) were just added. My profile shows what it might look like to logged-in users.

AskMe Relationship Questions

Is it time for freetherapy.metafilter.com? Nothing against this poster or their particular situation, but it's perhaps the most egregious example I've seen of the "I just want someone to talk to" style of non-question that seems to increasingly pollute AskMe.

The definition of "chatfilter" is one that's hard to tie down, but an AskMe post starting with "Which love option would you choose?" and ending with "My mind's made up but I'm curious: What would you do?" seems like it fits the bill.

Crush contacts

I tried to add the ever-sparkling Sidhedevil as a crush with the "Add Contact" thingy, however after submitting the form no relationship type was mentioned in the list. All the other relationship types work, but crush just won't stick. I appreciate the way this plagiarises Real Life, but still think this constitutes a bug.

Men, women, and relationships

What are some good community sites, other than AskMetafilter, where people can intiate discussions on topics like this one? It's a good question in a bad place, IMO.

How close are we on Metafilter?

Amidst all the talk about grudges and nemesii; stalking and vendettas; personal beefs and antipathies, the fact remains that, when you've been on MetaFilter for a while, the chances are that you've also made a few friends - or, at least, established some pleasant, lasting empathetic online relationships. Are they - or can they be - considered friendships? Or are they better considered fleeting and virtual, ready to evaporate at the first hastily answered (or unanswered) e-mail, not worth the paper they weren't written on in the first place?
