My dear Jack, you’ve got to summon up courage to ask her out. You’re going to die in silence wishing for her if you don’t summon the courage to ask her out.

You keep dancing around her, circling like a wagon in a Western B Movie, imagining all sorts of scenarios in your head.

And all the desire in the world will not produce a marriage. Ask her out. If you don’t bite the bullet and ask her out, you’ll be friend-zoned. She’ll be the wife you never had.

My dear Jil,
I received your missive but I really didn’t know what to make of it. I think the issue presents a deeper problem than it seems at first glance. You’re locked in a vice and I hope this mail propels you to seek escape from the cycle of unhappy relationships.

Dear Jack,

I’m a bit concerned about some of the things I see going on. Seems our societal values are now so warped distortions are normative.

My dear Jack,

You’re a victim of Lagos Landlord Syndrome (LLS). It’s a term I coined for your situation. What’s LLS you ask? I’ll explain.
