    I'm not sure there's a need to "officially classify" date/not date/something else. As long as I knew where I stood with someone, short of occasions requiring legal paperwork that have no-kidding-real more »

    Wow! Most of my friends in LTRs are thrilled to the stars to get away for a few days.  Logistics are trickier if they have small children, but even they make it work sometimes.

    I am not in Beth's shoes and I get tired of the amount of tie that friends in relationships talk about them. I can't imagine keeping a friends that made pitying comments about where I am "supposed to more »

    Dear LW:  If you really are Beth's "Close Friend" then - bless you - tell her that guys won't come to gatherings if she's going to be there.  It will likely hurt like holy heck and then some, but she more »

    LW, weddings are a strange animal so you need to let go of the friend's wedding-adjacent guest lists. [For example:- We had been married 3 years when my husband was in our best man's wedding. I was no more »

    "How is Joshua supposed to compete with sexy Griffin?" What? Are we in 4th grade? Are we trophy much? ... and I don't see in TTSS's update that she is any more attracted to Joshua, just that he remain more »

    LW, sounds like you are going with the flow of his life without drawing him into yours. Make plans with your friends that include him. Suggest something you'd like to do with him. If he pushes back an more »

    LW, another possibility. I'm going to give this guy the benefit of the doubt and say that he may not be in a place to be The One - for you or anyone - right now. For some [and I count myself among the more »

    Not "an overly sensitive preggo" - Criminy, LW, stop using pregnancy as your excuse! You've got a hot friend. You knew this. So your husband thinks [thought] she's hot. He married you, your hot friend more »

    I had a co-worker who told me she loved me. She was a serious flirt.  I left the company [about 3 years later].  Every few years I get a Christmas card from her asking if I'm still married. Two years more »

    I don't get the whole anti-flirting mindset.  OK, flirting while the SO is right there is tasteless. But flirty emails? Office banter? You gotta get through the day, and working with humourless automa more »

    Also bugged by "I also don't want to just watch TV with a great guy for the rest of my life".  Really?  I realise that I am no longer poor, but I seem to recall that we did more than watch TV - a lot more »

    Not going to jump all over LW for wanting to cut loose and live a little after choosing to live lean while she was raising kids. I know I have glimmering hopes to live a little once my son is through more »

    There's a bit of difference between ' being friendly' and 'being friends.'  Certainly with young children involved you will have contact.  It's in everyone's best interest to keep it civil, even amica more »

    Can an LDR work? Sometimes. But I really think you're setting yourself up for a fall, here. On the basis of one magical after-midnight your are all starry-eyed [OK, special], excited that she may trav more »

    LW. How do you deal with his gifts that miss the mark if they don't "cost a small fortune?" Deal with this one the same way. Everyone's clairvoyance fails from time to time and that's OK. But if you'v more »

    More like: "I'm in a relationship with a terrific guy who left a job he loves to be near while I'm in Med School.  He's not happy that I'm never there for him, but jaysus! he knows I'm in Med School a more »

    LW, You say you are [more or less] home with a solid friends & family support system. What kind of increased support are you looking from from your boyfriend as you move into your rotations? My observ more »

    After spending the day at a job he doesn't like, you want him to come home and talk about it? Huh. Different strokes, I guess. You are concerned that women flirt with him. Huh, again. So, apparently y more »

    If I were "emotionally devastated and plagued with self-doubt" by my husband ditching me and a friend said he had feelings for me, it would not be pretty for either one of us. If I'm already sunk deep more »
