@m.b.20 I felt that way about Glen - excused it due to binging it! Loved the show though

@fzmclaren this is victim blaming. She said no. We should be questioning why he thought it was ok to ignore the bourdaries. I do believe for her own health and well-being she needs to get out.

Thank you. I stopped watching this show a couple of seasons ago for the same reasons. They need to be calling out unhealthy behaviours instead of letting them continue unchecked 

mamamia-user-893622181 March 22, 2021

@rush nope the good old snappy kind! We had to trial a few to make sure it was a quick, clean death (one rat dragged a gentler drop 12m and back). You only need a few drops of the linseed. I literally dip a bit of wire in and dab it on the trap. Keep it in glass as they'll eat through plastic!

Mice and grasshoppers. Best thing to line the traps for mice is linseed oil - they can't get enough (you'll get 3-4 in one hit - and it won't harm birds, dogs or cats that may come across them

@jo bloggs I grew up with a similar dynamic and it drives me mental.

Yeah. Well our new motto is, "have the confidence of a Married at First Sight expert who has exclusively failed for seven seasons."
THIS ^^^
I can't even watch it anymore- there used to at least seem to be some effort to pair people together for a chance at love. The difference between now and when it started is huge and not for the better.

@nessa it's fantastic that you haven't had any issues. Clearly this is not the case for all women. It is somewhat concerning that you believe only women who fit certain physical criteria are likely to have issues.

mamamia-user-893622181 March 10, 2021

I've been horrified by what Morgan has been writing and saying about Markle for years. What's more concerning is that his employers supported him and provided a platform for his vitriol. Where is the accountability there?! You can dislike someone and voice it once but to do so in the way he has and for the length of time he has (they met in person once!) is abusive.

@singlemumof3 I spent years beating myself up but please don't feel ashamed. You aren't to blame for his unhealthy behaviours. I told myself that it was my ex's mental health issues and he didn't mean it. Ironically, I now have depression and anxiety because of my relationship with him, and realise that poor mental health doesn't mean treating those you love like dirt.

mamamia-user-893622181 March 6, 2021

He has not only betrayed you but repeatedly lied to you. Please leave - if not for your sake, then for your girls. Show them that they deserve someone who is honest and 100% committed

mamamia-user-893622181 March 6, 2021

@chrissyinthemiddle yep, 100%. My ex cheated on me and everyone blamed me (I even had an email sent to me) - apparently I deserved it. I was paying both our bills because he'd gotten himself into debt and was walking on eggshells to make him happy. I miss those friendships but I know how blinded I was so I can't really blame them for believing the worst. He completely isolated me so there was never an opportunity to present another side

mamamia-user-893622181 March 1, 2021

I'd love to see a line drawn before someone dies (people have already committed suicide overs3as following their experiences on 'reality' tv - pointing out unhealthy behaviours as they occur, rather than encouraging/ignoring them for ratings would be a good start. Most people can see participants certainly aren't partnered anymore with an expectation of love 

mamamia-user-893622181 February 25, 2021

@rush me too! That and her flowers. Absolutely stunning 

mamamia-user-893622181 February 19, 2021

There is no justification. If you don't want to be with someone own up and end it, before checking to see if the grass is greener elsewhere.

mamamia-user-893622181 February 16, 2021

I experienced a few of these but by far the worst was the sudden oily hair/dry scalp combo. My hair would be rank within hours of washing it and is only coming good now, a year later, after much trial and error 

mamamia-user-893622181 February 16, 2021

If you're feeling run down ask for a blood test! I spent six months sick to the point where I was barely functioning (unable to drive, barely eating, out of breath walking a few metres, passing out and cramming sleep into every possible spare minute before a blood test finally confirmed low iron. Incredibly frustrating that it took so long given that I was having weekly Dr appointments and had had a heap of scans, meds, etc thrown at me but no-one thought to check iron levels. Turns out I'm lactose intolerant and failure to absorb iron is a sign  

mamamia-user-893622181 February 14, 2021

You deserve better. Please rip the bandaid off now. It will hurt but it will hurt much less than further down the track when he leaves you for his "one." In the meantime, you're missing the opportunity to meet someone who sees and values you in their present and their future.


I've been in a relationship with someone where it was all on their terms and believe me, life is far richer and happier out of it.

If you're not ready to make any decisions, maybe tall to a professional who can be an impartial sounding board

mamamia-user-893622181 February 14, 2021

@rush I'm not keen on it. I'd rather have regular 'us time' and thoughtful gestures that show we care than one big, overblown day

mamamia-user-893622181 February 12, 2021

And adding to this...(personally experienced):

- leaving used tissues and bandaids on the table
- letting your kids use a bowl as a potty
- commenting on your waitstaff's physical appearance
