Comment on: She calls the shots
Posted 09/22/2010 09:50:50 EDT
By the way, have you seen The Hangover? Your relationship reminds me of Stu and his ultra-controlling girlfriend.
Posted 09/22/2010 09:46:22 EDT
Do exactly what Meredith suggests...Sign up for some activities that don't involve her. If she freaks out, you have your answer!
Comment on: He hasn't cut off the other woman
Posted 09/03/2010 09:29:12 EDT
He has been leading this girl on for years?! First of all, if he lied to her and can continually lead her on, what makes you think he isn't doing that to you? How can you be sure that he isn't seeing more »
Comment on: Can I grow to love my friend?
Posted 09/02/2010 09:39:15 EDT
Agree with Meredith. Get rid of both of them and start fresh. Also, try to stay sober enough that you don't take advantage of anymore nice loyal guys. more »

Lily said: "I assume he has a job? Any job today runs a CORI check. If he has a job, they know his past and hired him anyway." This is not necessarily true. Depending on the industry and the size of t more »

Just thought a couple of jbar's points were worth repeating: 1. Check to see if he is a registered sex offender. 2. You need to know this information because this eventually could affect the custody o more »

Agree with Meredith entirely today. The only way to make an educated decision is to have WAY more information than you have now. I would like to suggest that you briefly put your "heart" aside and foc more »
Comment on: He's horrible with money
Posted 08/16/2010 09:39:21 EDT
I agree that he is avoiding dealing with this major issue. Though I know you mean well, it might be making the situation worse if you are pressuring him to get his finances in order so you can potenti more »
Comment on: He blew it on my birthday
Posted 08/11/2010 09:39:13 EDT
Yes, I would be annoyed too that there was no acknowledgement. And his excuse is complete junk. But this is no deal breaker. more »
Comment on: Her negativity is making me miserable
Posted 08/10/2010 09:33:55 EDT
Has she always been this way? Or has it evolved through the years? From what you describe, it doesn't seem that she truly recognizes that there is a problem and she doesn't seem to be showing any incl more »

Meredith is wicked smart and you should listen to her. more »
Comment on: Should I marry him?
Posted 08/04/2010 09:50:40 EDT
It's never going to be perfect. Life is not like the movies. Sounds like you have a great guy who makes you happy, which is pretty lucky, in my opinion. Agree with other readers that maybe sprinkling more »
Comment on: She cheated while we were on a break
Posted 08/03/2010 09:53:31 EDT
"It feels like the only difference between what she did and cheating is that she asked for time off." Um...yeah! If you are on a break, you aren't together and therefor it wasn't cheating. As Meredith more »
Comment on: Updates and more updates
Posted 07/26/2010 10:04:13 EDT
Thank you for the updates! A lot of happy endings, which made me smile on a Monday morning. Joni - I'm so sad this didn't work out for you. You had a lot of people rooting for you. It sounds like you more »
Comment on: My job or my boyfriend?
Posted 07/22/2010 09:39:22 EDT
You have been dating for only 6 months! Why is this a big rush? You two are still in the honeymoon stage of the relationship. It's way too soon in this relationship for you to completely change your l more »

Thank you for a great story! It's great that someone is doing something to keep dogs in their loving homes vs. having to go to a shelter. more »

Tessa said: "She is not "picking sides" - perhaps he needs support right now, and you are doing fine." Just because she is doing well doesn't mean she doesn't need the support of her family. The mothe more »

What a crazy situation! I think you have every right to be angry and you should let your mom know that this is unacceptable. You're her daughter and you should be her first priority. If she wants/need more »
Comment on: Am I having an emotional affair?
Posted 07/12/2010 10:13:07 EDT
Please, please do not see Brian in person! It's only going to make things more complicated. What are you expecting to get from it anyway? As other readers have mentioned, how would your husband feel i more »
Comment on: My guy likes to party all the time
Posted 07/07/2010 09:50:59 EDT
I disagree with Meredith today. The fact that he puts you on hold to wait and see what his friends are doing is a huge red flag. He should want to be around you and spend quality time with you. I get more »
Comment on: Will it be my place too?
Posted 07/06/2010 10:17:10 EDT
So your boyfriend has invited you to live with him basically for free and you are upset because he wants to hang his posters on the wall? It doesn't sound like he is the one with the problem. First of more »

As you have learned the hard way, the grass is not always greener. But now that you are in this position, use it to your advantage and figure out what you really want. It sounds like you are in no con more »
Comment on: Should I date my ex-husband?
Posted 07/01/2010 09:24:08 EDT
I really enjoyed your letter and it sounds like you two have a great friendship, which is pretty refreshing for exes. The only thing that makes me nervous about your letter is this line: "He has helpe more »
Comment on: Am I doing it wrong?
Posted 06/30/2010 09:48:19 EDT
Reminds me of a story I saw a story on the news this morning about a new book - Last One Down the Aisle Wins. The idea of the book is basically that your 20s are meant for figuring out who you are and more »
