We receive daily updates on the road toll - why don’t we receive the domestic abuse death toll?
Anyone posting physical threats needs to be reported to the police. There is a law against “using a carriage service to menace, harass or cause offence” and it carries a penalty of 3-10 years imprisonment.
I’ve been replaced twice by younger women.
The lengths this guy went to in order to confront this woman who “owed” him an explanation make it chilling.
I experienced a not-quite-ghosting after 3 years. I believe it was exactly what you described. A man who was too cowardly and uncomfortable to have ANY difficult conversation, so instead chose to avoid talking and run away.
In movies and fiction, our partners are perfectly in tune with us. They have exactly the same expectations as we do in every scenario - that’s how you know they’re “the one”.
In real life, not so much.
Perhaps it’s time to stop expecting another human to read your mind and make your expectations clear. It may feel a little strange at first but I guarantee it’s worth it. If you have been specific and your partner chooses not to deliver, that’s a whole different kettle of fish to them not realising how you expected things to go.
Personally I was never interested in a push present but clearly it means something to you. Do you know for certain that your partner knew your feelings on the matter?
Don’t get hung up on “if he loves me I shouldn’t have to say anything” - that’s a romantic ideal. Put on your big girl pants and tell him what you need.
Mine was 3 years.
And now 4 years down the track the scars are still there. I no longer date because I can’t face going through that again. I’m too old for this shit.
When my ex gave up smoking several years ago he was an absolute dick.
I bit my tongue for several weeks but finally lost my temper. I reminded him that the fact that he was going through withdrawal did not give him license to take it out on me.
He did pull his head in somewhat after that, and has been a non-smoker for several years.
Some crankiness is to be expected and overlooked where possible. But that doesn’t mean he is absolved of all responsibility for acting like a decent human being.
Did it escape your notice that she's a comedian? Personally I think it's great to be able to laugh at ourselves and some of the admittedly ridiculous things we do as parents.
I feel your pain.
Jockey Parisienne cheeky range. Not going to be as flexible as your others, but very comfortable.
However I'm finding it harder and harder to locate these in store now too :(
If you want to have some fun with this, have a discussion next to me she’s over for dinner. Along the lines of “Dave and I are concerned that you’re unable to remember my name. Have you been to see your doctor lately? At your age it might be a good idea to have a comprehensive test of your cognitive function.”
Actually the best policy is not to play the passive aggressive game. Address it directly, in person, and in front of your husband. Demonstrate that at least one of you is capable of acting like an adult.
Does it matter?
My kids have their father’s surname purely on the basis that it’s easier to spell, and my surname as a middle name. But seriously - why does it matter?
Unfortunately some people are never going to get this. You can't always predict when anxiety and panic attacks are going to hit, and it can hit so hard that there is nothing you can do other than remove yourself from the situation.
I think it would be a good idea to talk to your friend, but think carefully about how you word your apology. You didn't do this intentionally, and it's not your fault that you have a mental illness - you shouldn't feel the need to apologise for that. But it may help her if she understood that you wanted to be there, and wish that you hadn't had to leave.
Being around people who choose to be judgemental about your condition is really hard, and can exacerbate your anxiety.
Tempting, but I suspect this is WAAAAY more hard maintenance for thick hair.
In 2017 why do they still have to wear dresses or skirts?
Being married and having a family doesn't mean that you stop being an individual.
What's the harm? A bit of alone time is healthy, and there's no reason that you can't do the same if you wish.
"Keep yourself open to love, knowing that it's going to come."
It's called a 'fairytale' because it's unrealistic. And the sooner you realise this, the better off you'll be.
There are some toys that need to remain broken! If battery operated, bend the contacts so that the batteries don't work. That way even if someone replaces the batteries you're still safe.
