Do I have any obligation to warn women about him? My friends and I were debating this hypothetically until two days ago, when I saw him on a date with a woman I know. Do I tell her what a douche this guy is, or do I let her discover it on her own? —What Would Dan Do?
A: If this douche weren't so transparent — if women didn't see through him instantly — Dan would feel obligated to warn his female friends. But as this douche is transparent, WWDD, Dan wouldn't feel obligated to warn women away. Don't get Dan wrong: Dan would still warn anyone he knew who 1) has a pussy and 2) isn't a crazy bitch, because Dan's a meddling douche. But Dan wouldn't feel obligated. So it's your call, WWDD.
Q: Do I have a duty to disclose to my wife that a guy licked my balls? —Balls Already Licked Last Summer
A: There's more to this question — a lot more — and I actually answered it already. BALLS's question was the Savage Love Letter of the Day last Wednesday. Folks with the Savage Love app (SLAPP) for iPhone get the letter of the day delivered directly to their phones. To find out what happened to BALLS' balls, and what he told the wife, you'll have to get SLAPPed.
