    The 3rd "love of your life" - pretty funny.  That's why people should avoid searching for "the one" or "my soulmate", etc.  It's a fool's errand because there is no such thing.

    "Soul mate"??? Ugh - that's such a ridiculous term.  Well LW, there's not a lot you can do, no matter how close you are to Emily.  I'm sure it's tough to see your friend making what you think of as a more »

    Maybe the LW isn't really upset that he's paying off his credit card(s). And maybe it's not that she's focusing on a "piece of jewelry".  Maybe it's because she doesn't see him making any definite pla more »

    We have so many methods of communicating with other people these days, yet bad communicating is the reason for many, many misunderstandings.  LW, you may have been wrong about her feelings for you all more »

    Isn't this the same letter that appears day after day?  "We've been seeing each other for x number of months, but he says he doesn't love me - oh, what can I do?"  It can't get any plainer.  This part more »

    Attention editors:   Does no one edit copy any more?  He "had drank"????  It's "had drunk" and yes, it does matter.

    Geez, LW.  You already know the answer and the people responding to you are telling you the same thing.  He's NOT yours, so there's really nothing to give up.  Just move on.  You don't need a big disc more »

    I am shocked, shocked, I tell you.  Actually I am shocked.  With D.C. pushing him to do it, probably promising lots of bucks and help, I am amazed that he declined this.  I think there are still many more »

    Excellent suggestion. That gets two undesireable people off the dating scene. more »

  • Comment on: We're so different

    Posted 10/19/2012 11:18:33 EDT

    LW: It's not the religion, dog or number of children (two is an excellent number) differences of opinion that worries me. It's that he wants to move back home - ick! You sound a person who wants some more »

    I'm confused. I can't tell if the LW is a woman writing about a man or a woman writing about another woman with all the references to "this person". Upon re-reading, it could be a man writing about a more »

    I can't believe that Mittens and I love the same show.  This has kind of spoiled "Friday Night Lights" for me.

    Geez---it takes too long to figure out what "Da blog iz broked" is trying to say and by then I don't care. At all. LW, I cannot believe that a woman in her late 30's is falling for this pile of crapol more »

    Wow. Lots of people beating up the the letter writer and beating up on Meredith today. But the LW deserves it! I don't know how a 36-year-old guy would want to have a relationship with a 24-year-old s more »

    Just to be clear: the $10,000 we gave for our son's house was not a demand on our part. They needed some help with the downpayment and we offered to provide that help. We were glad to help them buying more »

    I don't believe in expensive weddings. I didn't have one and didn't want to contribute to one. When our first son got married we gave them $10,000 several months prior to the wedding as a downpayment more »

    Ugh. This is cheating, even if it's via email, even if there hasn't been anything physical......yet. Given the opportunity, he obviously will. Yep, time to bail. There is no way to rebuild trust with more »

    Housewife, homemmaker, stay-at-home-mom. It doesn't matter what title a person takes. In this case it's a she, so is she taking care of the house - apparently not? Is she at least being a good mother more »

    LW: Don't worry about losing him because he's "the one". THERE IS NO SUCH THING. There are many people with whom you could build a life and a family. If this guy isn't onboard with your plans, there A more »

    Rico! Don't retire! I love your comments, even though many end in recommendations for bike rides. And you are correct again: how old are these people? It does matter. LW: No matter how wonderful this more »

    LW: With a few exceptions the consensus today is to hang in there. Yes, you're young and yes, people's ideas about having children DO change. When we got married at 24 my husband and I agreeed on 2 th more »

    Meredith: do us all a favor and do not run any more letters from people (women!) seeking "closure". I'm just plain tired of seeing that stupid word. LW: you got taken by a scam artist/bad person. Acce more »

    LW: What you're describing is how people might talk about their marriages - after about 10 years. Going into a marriage with no passion is a huge problem. Believe me, crazy sex will go away, but if yo more »
