    Without going into too much detail, here in Japan, landscaping is pretty much non-existent in my own experience, not that I'm particularly bothered by that. It also means that there's no expectation of manscaping, which is nice because I only ever bothered to on request anyway. Among Japanese guys I've talked to, they don't seem to have much preference either way as far as how they like women to be. Other westerners I know run from hating it to not caring, which I guess is to be expected.

    Weirdly enough I've only watched the Still Open's cause I'm burned out from all the RT podcasts, but these make me want to get into Always Open at least. Also, that ending haha

    I did long distance for 3yrs with my current husband. I was in Canada and he was in Texas and I can definitely confirm that it is haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaard. Happily living in Austin now :) really wonderful when it all works out.

    I REALLY hope we get more Miles and Flanagan in the future. Perfect balance for the cast and offer fantastic perspectives.

    I am also going to say that I love this show because it's wonderful to know that there are girls with the same quirks and beautifully weird thoughts as me. This show is so relatable and reminds you that you're not the only one thinking or doing ______.


    Love love love

    Well I suppose my story begins in 2009. When I first became infatuated with my ex. We had a lot in common but that fizzed our after 2 years. After many years and many struggles like her getting pregnant with her first husband child. After divorce and looking at the guys on the plate (it's too long to get into that story). But the end of the conversation is you need to see who they are as a person and see who you are as a person before you can make any determination of them as a person when it comes to your own.

    Depends on personal growth, in my experience. Had a girlfriend in college that I got along very well with, but I was awkward and had no self-esteem so the relationship went no where. Fast forward years later, we meet up, fall in love, and decide to give it another attempt. This time, however, I was in better shape, was better groomed, and much more confident, which led to a happy and successful relationship...until recently when she realized that she wasn't all that into me anymore and dropped me Gavin's beer during an Off Topic podcast. Sudden and clumsy!


    So yea, if you feel that both of you have grown enough to warrant another try, go for it. Just don't fall for the trap baited with loneliness and familiarity, because more times than not that never works out.

    My husband moved to MN to start a job while I finished off my Grad degree at MS State....6+ months separated (only married 2 yrs at the time) with only phone calls and minimal comp chat, but it worked...22 yrs strong!

    I think the temptation to reconnect with an ex is there, however after you spend time with them it becomes extremely difficult to build a friendship off that let alone a romantic relationship. At least in my experience.

      They specifically mentioned Still Open, the First Member exclusive. They didn't mean Always Open, the free Rooster Teeth Production.
