Re: The dance

Sorry, I didn't get it :) and still don't get the comedy in that.




No, I don't think that.

I just think you should prioritize your husband over bs. :D

Re: how many best friends, close friends and regular friends do you have

My best friend = my wife

ALL of the friends I had over the years "came and went". I lost many (if not most) to alcohol and drug abuse.

Although wife and I still have friends, we simply don't...

Re: 23 Yr old at home, no job - tough love

I don't think there is ANYTHING wrong with son living at home even DEEP into 30s. If you go around the world this is the norm (only in US it isn't).

HOWEVER, most kids help out...

Re: Parents and guilt trips

Tell your father how you feel about how he is. Tell him it effects your relationship with him. If he is smart he will understand and adjust accordingly.

You should visit him, not just when he...

Trust me when I tell you this. When you become a parent, you get to see how messed up your parents were.

Just don't forget about all the positives as well.

Re: Sexually molested by father as a teenager

I'm really sorry to hear about this.

How in the world are you able to continue to see/talk to your father...heck even mother (since she clearly knows). This is extremely disturbing.

Re: I cant take this anymore

I doubt a mother would rather see her 2 children + 3 grand kids on the street vs 1 child on the street.

I would take her up on that.

Meanwhile, I would work hard to try to be on my own/untied...

Re: I cant take this anymore

You should probably remind her about all of this.

She didn't stand the test of time. I'm actually surprised it lasted 3 months (one can say that's an accomplishment).

Personally, I always...

Great post Lucy!!!

It's like anything else you do, Takes time to learn etc.

Great post right there.

The biggest part of a marriage and love is Friendship and Companionship in my opinion.

Re: Am I Being Too Sensitive?

Unfortunately all too many friendships are based on and thrive on "what does this person do for me".

Once you take that away, you find out who your real friends are.

Don't expect many/if ANY.
