Do you need relationship advice? Ask omne!

Sarah Connolly

You may know, omnevelnihil and I share a women's cycling blog, and this is his latest idea for a column...

Sometimes life can be hard. There are all sorts of complicated decisions that need to be made and we’re mostly operating with imperfect and incomplete information. This is especially true in the fraught and perilous world of personal human relationships. We either don’t think at all or we overthink way too much and invariably we fuck something up. When you get down to it, relationships are a lot like bike racing:

  • Complicated
  • Unfolding quickly
  • Constantly changing
  • Incomplete information
  • Too much thinking
  • No thinking at all
  • Disastrous

If only there were some simple and clear way to understand relationships just like racing bikes!

Well lucky for you, we’ve decided to do something about it. Starting next week we’ll be running a regular “It takes two” relationship advice column, giving you the very best (or possibly worst) relationship advice possible, in language you’ll understand – race tactics! We’ll all learn together as elite US-based cyclist and coach Heather Nielson assists us in making sure you don’t end up faceplanting on the roads of love.

Drop your questions into the comments, or email us at prowomenscycling[at]gmail[dot]com and we’ll pick the best/most desperate ones to answer.

Don’t worry lonely cyclists, your love troubles will soon be over (or just beginning)!

I should stress, this is nothing to do with me! But dear Café friends, I am aching to see what kind of relationship advice omne can come up with, so - if you have a question that you want to ask, for yourself, or "for a friend" - or you just want to make one up to see what kind of answers you'll get - please please please please head over to our blog and leave a question in the comments (anonymously or not!), or email one directly. There's no way this can go wrong, right?
