If I might make an analogy, Sean. I’ve had more than my share of first dates off Match.com which were similarly peppered with angry comments about “that fucking whore” that they had previously dated.

Male of female, LGBTQ, doesn’t matter. When someone speaks of an ex- whom they once professed to love- this way, they’ve just telegraphed how they will speak of you should things not work out.

Not only is this bad form, it speaks to a level of garbage we carry inside about others. I have learned to excuse myself and leave, and in cases such as yours, Sean, leave that office off the list for the same reasons.
