Official Giant Bomb Thread Mostly for Complaining About Dan in Idle Banter Posted July 18, 2015 Yeah, I can't listen to Danswers for that reason. Taking life advice from a single 29 year old guy who writes about video games for a living is probably not the best thing ever. Though, I spew tons of advice on my own podcast, so I am the pot calling the kettle black. When Danny O'Dwyer was trying to rationalize leaving his fiancee of like 7 years for an hour on the podcast, I couldn't take it. It really sounded like he was trying very hard to defend a decision that he still didn't make up his mind over. It takes courage to walk away from something like that, but his demeanor and language sounded like he was trying to convince himself it was the right decision Also, Dan R. is the last person I would ever take advice from. He is a nice guy, but he has some really odd worldviews and closed-off ness that I don't think of what I would want from someone giving me advice. Personally, I am really open to trying new things, kind of like the way Drew seems. Like "Fuck it, I will try it at least once!" kind of attitude to new things. Dan is very guarded about some things, and very open about others. It would also make sense that Dan would have the views on relationships and money he has due to his childhood upbringing. I have plenty of friends who had divorced parents, and they very much seem to act the way Dan does. Very closed off and afraid of committing to someone. It only makes sense, as you have a very real example of relationships/marriage not working out.
