Ask Baba Yaga: How Do I Deal With My Boyfriend's Past Partners Gracefully?

by Francesco Francavilla
History. Luggage. Almost every partner you find these days has some. Meeting that luggage in person, however, has it's own special kind of challenge and Baba Yaga has some pretty "tasty" opinions on what to do.

This week's question and answer (via poet and oracle Taisia Kitaiskaia* of The Hairpin):
(Originally posted at The Hairpin HERE)

Lots of people re-reading the advice on this one. Here are some comment highlights:
  • Slathered in man syrup? :slowly pushes lunch away with one finger: (JessicaLovejoy)
  • Hell yes staying away from that syrup. (wanderluster)
  • The fastest way to get rid of an ex-anybody is to be nice to them.
    Always worked for me. Staying far away just attracted the crazy aka syrupy hands all over my flapjack. MinisterofPretty(MP) 
I will never look at syrup the same way again. *shudder*

What do you think of Baba Yaga's advice?

Want to ask Baba Yaga a question of your own?
You can!
There's now an email address where you can send your questions
directly to Baba Yaga herself.

To encourage Baba Yaga to continue imparting her no-bones-about-it wisdom (ok, there may be some gristle in there... bones too), I suggest we not to leave her box empty... 

Thank you Baba Yaga (& Taisia).
