DEAR AMY: I recently left a relationship with a man who was emotionally and financially controlling and frequently verbally aggressive toward me, complete with expletives and a physical threat. After we broke up, he would send me endless text messages and emails, calling me an evil whore.

She tends to get blinders when it comes to male attention, and he can be very charming and manipulative when he wants to be. Your roommate has made a choice. You should be honest with her about the impact her choice has on you. I believe that when you host a party, you really should not expect your guests to do anything except show up and have a good time. My wife gets very upset if guests do not jump out of their chairs to help put food out or take out the trash during the party.
She gets so upset that the party becomes a source of stress for her. She will make it quite obvious that she is unhappy during the party. I believe that when you offer to host a party, you should take care of everything and if you want help, ask for it, but I do not expect people to come and work. Your wife is obviously stressed by the effort these large gatherings require.
You should tell her that because she always seems so unhappy during and after these parties, it might be best to take a break from large-scale entertaining.

In the midst of a bar-hopping boozy weekend, a good guy friend of mine and I were discussing relationships over coffee as we nursed our hangovers with sleepy eyes and uneasy stomachs. Taking a breath only to sip on her vodka soda, she was nonstop complaining about her relationship and how she wanted out. Not how anyone wants to spend a night, but furthermore, not how anyone wants to feel in their relationship.
I wanted to know more information about this situation and probed him for any legit reason as to why she hadn’t gotten out already. She seemed miserable, so what was the hold up? He said that she feels as if her boyfriend has become just like a roommate in her eyes. The relationship is void of chemistry, sparks, and flirtations. They’re just kinda stuck in an everyday saga of living with someone where there is really nothing left in the relationship and no one knows how to get out.

Lots of people have told me unequivocally that they would never date a friend’s ex. They wholeheartedly believe that it’s wrong, disrespectful, and if a friend did that to them, they’d never talk to that person again. They believe this is something everybody knows, that they’re just following the rules. What I’ve noticed, though, is that every person I’ve heard espouse this worldview was straight.
This rule is almost never stated or enforced among queer communities. If you’re gay, you will almost inevitably date a friend’s ex at some point. Queer communities are often small and insular, and once you’ve found one, you tend to hold on to it for dear life. It’s difficult to meet people you’re romantically interested in beyond an already-defined circle, and outside of your city’s queer scene, most people you run into are likely to be straight.
Even if you meet someone to whom you think you have no previous connection, a minute conversation almost always reveals that she went to high school with your college roommate, used to be on a volleyball team with that girl from your book club, and had a six-month stand with your favorite barista. Queers don’t tend to expect our dates to come into our lives completely free of prior complication.
