The “D” Word

Posted on | August 23, 2015 | Comments Off

Dear Short Answers:
My girlfriend decided to get a nose ring and it completely grosses me out.  Every time I look at it, I think she’s got a bugger sticking out of her nose.  And I almost say “you’ve got a bugger sticking out of your nose” before I remember what it is.  Would it be wrong for me to ask her to remove the nose ring when we are together?  I don’t mind piercings in general but this one is disgusting.

Dear Don:
The way you say it is “mission critical.” Start with something like “you have the cutest nose I’ve ever seen…” and state your preference for her’s unadorned. But then it’s over. Say it once as nicely as you can and then live with the outcome.
