When one wants to stop being a stage 5 clinger, are you able to do it cold turkey, or to not suffer withdrawals, do you need to do it gradually i.e. 4, 3, 2, 1?

@43and becoming invisible  I think it's more that things like status are more appealing to straight women than to straight men.

@elle44 I mean unfair dismissal and redundancy are two separate things.

Yes I know, in the past at least, if a company made a role redundant it was illegal to advertise that position for 12 months.

In 2006 I was made redundant from my role. Around six months later I was on the company's website and my exact role was being advertised; they just changed the title. 

But in my case it wasn't anything dodgy. The company lost their main contracts and couldn't be certain of getting future contracts. They then did get a big contract, so needed that role filled.

@tumus88 Unfair dismissal doesn't apply to redundancy.

@sara78 Two questions. 

So, as per this example, you'd rather a guy openly told you 'I met someone better than you'?

Re. "I get out of my mind irate if a guy ghosts me and just keep texting them rage texts"
Ummm, is that legal?

I dont think honesty extends to telling someone: I met someone yesterday who's better than you, so I'm going to try to be with them instead of you - "I hope you understand".

" is credited with pushing her husband to pursue the presidency"

Huh? I thought Melania Trump was literally crying the night Donald Trump won the presidency?

"’it's no one's business. It’s my real life. So best people stay out of it"

Said the individual who's been on four (4) reality shows?

So why was the original conviction thrown out three years later?

"women NEVER getting up to pee after sex"

There was actually a movie that had this; with the woman also telling the man why. But sorry, I don't remember the movie's name.

@rush Also, wont it fade the clothes, if they're constantly exposed to sunlight?

What about that endless 'girl trying to get boy back' dance at the end of Trainwreck? That dance would've taken ages to learn and co-ordinate.

Perhaps this is a sign that adult women (and men) should stop looking to celebrities for moral guidance.

"He told me that the girlfriend had moved to China now, so did I want to pick up where we left off?”

I find going to sleep the hardest thing. When you're home alone the whole day, everyday, it's like your body doesn't know that late night is the time for sleep.

I remember a case where a wife was going to divorce her husband, but the husband didn't want her to get any money. But instead of hiding it, he spent it. He liquidated all the family assets, and then deliberately blew it all on wine, women and song.

But it didn't work. A (female) judge ordered that he still owed a portion of that amount of money to the wife.

@paul Sorry. I realised afterwards that was the case.

But I think the disqus format, where the name of the article appeared (and linked), was preferable.

Also, it would be good to know how many comments the article has.

mamamia-user-869298775 April 30, 2020

I assume someone's already raised this, but just to be sure...
When you go to the comments page, it doesn't show and link to the article the comment is to.

"the world lavished more praise on [Adele's] smaller frame than they ever did on her musical accomplishments"

Ummm... Adele's musical accomplishments have been lavishly praised and celebrated.
