  1. Titled, "Why Women Don't Want a Female Boss" I think women have to fix this side, if they ever expect men in the workplace to see them as rational. https://hermoney.com/earn/careers/why-women-don-t-want-a-female-boss/ And from Forbes... "Women Bullied At Work:..." https://www.forbes.com/sites/heidilynnekurter/2020/02/19/women-bullied-at-work-heres-why-your-female-boss-dislikes-you/ From Linked In: Why Women HATE Working with Other Women https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-women-hate-working-other-roos-brekelmans *** All those articles, from legit places.
  2. LOL... I wonder if he's picking up on how unpleasant it is to work for a woman. Sadly, there are many many places online you can find horror stories of either bad female bosses (they tend to be much worse and seem many more than male), but also horrible, mean, unhelpful, competitive female coworkers. I'm not sure if males are the same way to this extent. My husband has never had much trouble with men in the way women have with each other at his workplace. And it was the same at my workplace. Barring maybe one or two men, out of 100, they did their job, weren't petty, rude and un
  3. Not sure if this is addressed to me? E4 did say this was inappropriate, so I was agreeing with her post, as well as her take on the quasi-step-parent dynamic going on.
  4. I can see this dynamic being right, in that the OP's boyfriend has a lot of guilt over the girl not having good parents, or parents who had her way too young and aren't as involved in her life (I'm guessing?). Sure he's not her father per-se, but the situation does seem to fit into what E4 described.
  5. You don't look desperate to me. You're thoughtfully planning this out... I'm sure you know more about the situation than we do, AND you sound ready to nuke it if the red flags get too much. Good luck, I sincerely hope it works out for you!
  6. In my opinion, from reading ENA off and on for a long long time, a lot of people do this. They are distressed by something, get advice they don't like, reject it, and then it happens again a few more times until they open their eyes. He may not be in that position, he may really know more than us about his own situation, though. But in general, people do not like taking advice they don't want to hear. They close themselves off to it, retell the story in a different light to make look not as bad.
  7. Being that you're from India, I thought of a different perspective, bouncing off of Jilbralta's comment for assistance. Her comment is right, and I think he saved you a lot of drama in your long-term future. In Indian cultures, wouldn't you have to see her a lot, interact with her a lot, even if you lived in Canada, she'd probably make visits and stay for a week to possibly weeks? And isn't it kind of normal for Indian daughter in laws to defer to their MIL's? I know some areas are more traditional in this, and then some areas are modernized. But think about it... if he
  8. So we just got back from a few hours at a huge spring party for the church. Ugh it was soooo good to get out and see people we know again in a fun environment like that. I can't believe it, but 3 of the moms I love seeing at those coops were there and came up to me to talk !!!!!!! I could have died of happiness ❤️ We got there late - after the long naptime/quiet time where I splurged on reading here. I mean there was absolutely no point in going during naptime, no one would have been happy 😂 so we waited and caught the last few hours of the event. It was so. much. fun. T
  9. LB, I remember your story from another post... I do think if you both give it time, love and understanding can grow. People in arranged marriages have love grow fairly regularly, not that yours was arranged, I just mean there is always the possibility you can work it out if both partners are willing to try.
  10. I don't know... I've known some marriages where they are both incredibly happy with each other, and the man swears it's because he found an Asian wife that values things differently and treats him kind, respectful, loving, affectionate. It is possible, not sure on the statistics or probability.
  11. I don't know... in my opinion they make better wives than the typical American woman/Westernized woman. American women are incredibly selfish... not that the women from the other cultures aren't that way as well, but sometimes, you can find a better one over there because the chances are higher. My mom does come from a traditional Polish background. I do accredit a lot of things that make me different from the average (terrible) American wife/mom is due to that EE background of valuing and seeing life differently. I think there are differences though between EE and Asian women th
  12. Wow... it is almost creepy how similar we are... I'm legitimately amazed at the similarities. I mean there are differences, too... I've always had this strange sense of calm, peace, and deep deep contentment in my life, whereas MyLolita has a lot of angst, dissatisfaction when she wasn't being true to herself. I know this is going to sound arrogant, but I've always known myself, which I believe has led me to always feel a lot of confidence in my choices and quiet assurance that leads to contentment. I knew what profession I wanted to pursue at age 9... had already made serious life pl
  13. 😂 OMG I laugh at the fact anyone would be peeping at another's journal, and hating what they're reading, yet still persisting in it! WHYYYY?? How could they possibly not have anything more worthwhile in their life to give their attention to? I'm like... enjoying myself way too much reading her journal ❤️ I would never spend time reading something like that if I disliked it. Are their lives really that boring, that meaningless and empty, that they'd read something they hate? 😂 I don't know why, but that made me laugh so hard. Who on earth has time to give to something they
  14. From MyLolita again above... I think this is why I've had two close friends who were prostitutes. We both seemed to understand the deep needs of men, that all (most?) of them really want, is a woman who gives them love, respect, and attention and actually enjoys sex with them. I don't know how I learned that by staying a virgin and never being around a promiscuous environment, very sheltered actually in a strict religious environment (not prudish though! Strict on rules but eccentric and vibrant on life outlook). My mom did teach me a lot of stuff about men and how to under
  15. Ok, I have to stop cluttering up MyLolita's diary pages!!!! What the hell is wrong with me? LOL I should have been more conscientious! Anyway, because I'm still reading through her stuff and have ALL of quiet time to veg out and read with delicious delight, I'll post her stuff here and then talk to myself... LOL... like a nutcase. But I think I've been mostly talking to myself here anyway, so.... 😂 OMG!!!!! Yes... I've always thought this was true!!! I've always thought this about those strange Prince Charming types. Prince Charming is just not f*ckable. He's just not som
