I wish a hotel room designer would explain some of their choices. No door on the bathroom is not romantic. And nor is a bathroom with a window to the bedroom. (For real, at a hotel we stayed at in Melbourne you could sit on the bed and see the loo. There were blinds, but it was still weird.)

I think you need to Google "sunk cost fallacy". You've invested a lot of time and emotional energy into this relationship, but that doesn't mean its good for you any more.

@missblonde I've got the rose toner mist, I don't know if it does anything, but it  smells really nice! I'm using the jojoba company oil, but I'm not super in live with it. I think I prefer the rosehip oil I used in the past.

@gypsy I think in this case there has been so much focus on her financial shenanigans that I just figured she'd taken the money and done a runner. Guess that was a red herring.

@monty maybe if men can't restrain themselves from making tactless comments, they should stay at home until they learn some self control.

@flaka I think this could have been interesting if they'd genuinely tried to match people they thought would be compatible. And they could have given them tasks that aim to bond them - something like the "36 questions to love" thing, had them really try to get to know each other. I think there could have been potential for something a bit deeper and maybe a bit thought provoking, but they've gone for cheap drama. Which, for some reason, rates well.

This show is famous for its terrible matches, why would this year be any different? The whole point is to make as much drama as possible, they don't give a rats backside about actual compatibility, or who gets hurt in the process. If any couples actually get along, that's sheer luck more than anything.

Bloody hell, for $680, that cream would have to give me an entirely new face!

I still find the whole influencer thing somewhat bemusing. I guess we just have to remember that they are basically just ads, their whole purpose is to sell us stuff. It's not that much different to me reading Dolly magazine back in the day, and seeing all the new, cool fashions - followed by dozens of ads showing me exactly where to buy those new, cool fashions!

They all look beautiful, but I absolutely looooove Courtney's gold sequins! Wear what makes you happy, folks.

"Remember your baby hasn't read the books", I like that a lot!

Well, I was not expecting that end to the Melissa Caddick story!

If you really want to have a cake, I've been to a few weddings where the cake was the dessert. Two birds, one stone.

@andigirl yup. I can get on board with a straight leg, but those 'mom jeans' are going to make me look like that SNL sketch.

@cat when that argument comes from another woman I have to wonder if there's an element of denial in there. "If what happened to my friend was sexual assault, what about all those things that happened to me?" Maybe if they don't admit that it is assault, then they don't have to deal with the fact that they might have been assaulted too.

Nice photo, Jack looks proud as Punch!

Good lord, Bec Hewitt's daughter is only 15? That's what having rich and famous parents will do for you, I guess! I genuinely thought that was Bec standing with another grown woman. Also, I saw a comment about Ella Emhoff today that said it looked like someone had finally managed to squeeze all the Seinfeld characters into one person, and now all I can see is a very pretty George Costanza wearing Elaine's clothes. (Very envious of her gorgeous curls, BTW.)

@talbotpc sometimes mine does that when the comment is a bit long. I find if I hit the enter key a few times, then backspace a bit, the comment button comes back up as the page goes up. Took me a while to figure it out, and doesn't always work, either, but maybe give it a try.

@random dude you had to have a good dictionary, a big thick OED or something. Not the one used by the wordfinder game I downloaded on my phone, which frequently disallows legitimate words! 🤬

@gu3st also, is that even the right word in that context? "The hard to find basket trick"?
