Guise and Dolls

Dear Michelle,

I met “Alan” in college. He was handsome, tall, smart, kind, and Jewish---as my mother would say, “What a doll.” When we got married, Alan was in medical school. After medical school, he did a residency and then an internship/fellowship. While he was a resident, we had two children. He worked long hours and we were both very tired. I figured that was why we were hardly ever intimate. I thought that everything would get better once he was in practice.

However, as time went on, things didn’t get better. We had more time and money, but he still always had an excuse for not getting close to me. Alan played golf every weekend. Then he decided to train for the marathon. He went out to run very early in the morning and then worked out again in the evenings.

It got to the point where he would barely touch me. I thought maybe this is what it’s like to be married to a very busy man. Or maybe something was wrong with me. Then I started to think that he had someone on the side and was having an affair. So, after 15 years of marriage, I simply asked him, “Are you in love with another woman?” He looked at me and replied, “no, but I think I’m in love with another man.” Then he told me that he likes to dress up like a woman. After all this, he told me that he still loves me and wants to stay married to me. 

I am enclosing a sample of his writing.  What do you think?          

Baffled in Dallas

Caption: Incomplete lower loops can show confusion in the sexual area. 

Dear Baffled,

Let’s look at the handwriting of the man your mother called a “doll” (which should have been your first hint that something wasn’t kosher).

The lower zone (The lower loops or extensions of the letters f, g, p, q, and y) represents how a writer feels about his or her sexual needs and urges.

Do you see that Alan’s lower extensions hang straight and end with a razor sharp point? His incomplete loops show that he feels that something in his sex life is lacking. The razor sharp bottoms indicate that he’s very angry and bitter about it.

Alan is very confused and should go to counseling. Meanwhile, you need to ask yourself if you really want to stay married to a man who likes to play “guise and dolls.”
