“Dear Alexandria,

I’m in love with a woman. But she might be too unruly. What do I do?


Clearly N. Alias “

“Dear Clearly N. Alias,

Have you tried giving her definitely-not-drug-flowers? What about alcohol? Bitches love alcohol.

If all else fails, resort to the mating dance. It’s a ritual that has been performed time and time again for centuries. Sweep her off her feet, profess your love, show her your strength, and make her lady parts tingle with fiery passion.

If that fails… tressertag bracelet cuff the bitch.

Best of luck,


“Dear Alexandria, with Tressertag coming up, I would really like for a man to bracelet me, even though there’s no one courting me and I can expect an arranged marriage anyway. I know that it’s silly for me to pursue romance since my father will be looking for a political match for me, but it just seems like it would be nice to experience, even a little. What should I do?”

“Dear some-clever-alias,

They won’t tressertag bracelet you?! that’s awful! I personally have never been braceleted myself, but if I were in your shoes, here is how I would make it happen.

Step 1: get a bracelet
Step 2: ask a guy to help you put on the bracelet because it is soooo difficult and you need help
Step 3: once they help you put the bracelet on, inform everyone in the room very loudly that that man or woman has tressertagged you. For instance, “OH MY GOODNESS LORD ARAGA THATS SOOOOO ROMANTIC! MARRY YOU FOR THE DAY?! ABSOLUTELY!”

Not only will this inform the room that you have been taken, but it will prevent him from getting out of the commitment. If he is startled like a opossum you’ve just found in your pantry, remember to remain calm and let him know there is no escape. He is yours now. If he says a mistake has been made, break down and cry on the spot. Let all eyes fall on him and let him choose embarrassment or a day of enjoyment. Besides, Let’s be real, most marriages now a days are arranged. Sometimes you just have to do the arranging. Do the woo’ing from there.

Also, since it’s the season of love, I figure I should give you some valuable insight: give a man an inch and he thinks he is a ruler.

Good luck!
