Dear Dr. Strangelove,
I’ve been seeing this girl for about a month now. We met randomly during one of my lecteur classes when I asked her if I could borrow a pen and it was like at first sight. She’s pretty, smart, all the other adjectives that could be used to describe someone you’re attracte too– except for one thing, her voice.
At first it wasn’t so bad but the more I hear her speak, the more I want to stick my head in a stump grinder. Really though, it’s like Fran Drescher on crack. I like her but don’t know if I can look past the sound of her voice. What should I do?

You’ve got two choices, either break up with her or learn to live with her blood-boiling voice. Learn to love her inspite of her faults or end it in the nicest way possible.
Some may think you’re shallow because a voice isn’t something you can change but if it’s really that bad and you can’t look past it, it’s better to end it sooner than try to force something that just isn’t there. While you may not be able to tolerate a single syllable that comes out of her mouth, there’s another guy out there who will be able to deal with her voice, and maybe even find it endearing in some weird masochistic way.
