Even if Trump doesn’t follow through on his promises to be ultra-conservative and dictator-like, his vice president Mike Pence (who actually has political experience) has a history of limiting women’s healthcare. Do I call tomorrow, do I call in two days, does anybody call anymore? Dates grow into dating, dating grows into more, and just after you think that nothing’s happening… Holding hands on wintery walks, big plans on Saturday nights, showing up together at parties, and feeling like everything’s all right. I suppose once in a while some combo of spinning electrons, random nights, and crackly connections ends up turning flickering questions into interesting reflections.

Or you know, just stop having sex, specifically with any dude who didn’t vote for Hillary.
