  1. I work from home most of the time. It's fabulous. It's the way of the future baby. Take it seriously while you do it. Be responsive to your boss, etc. But don't stay stuck in a mindset that's unnecessary. In my experience, "thinking" (versus manual) jobs + a work culture that values a work/life balance = flexibility like working from home. Enjoy it for as long as you can.
  2. I agree completely. What would a poster expect a rational reader to advise other than to leave him. It seems you need to ask your therapist to really help you get out of this relationship OP.
  3. It will be hard to break the pattern of yearning for that which you cannot have. Have you considered therapy?
  4. Hi Greta, Didn't you have an issue of unrequited love with an ex too? Someone who cheated on you and recently tried to cheat on his girlfriend with you? If so, perhaps you have a larger pattern of being attracted to men who are not emotionally available to you? Also, are you still in a relationship or did that end?
  5. Sorry dude, but you let this happen when you bought a separate house with your fiance and let her brother move in. I seriously would not agree to marry someone who put me in such a situation.
  6. No excuse for your choice to stay really. You should have dumped him long ago.
  7. Lol I'm surprised this thread hasn't been closed. OP, what happened with the girl?
  8. Something I thought you might find interesting below. And there is a TON of evidence to support it ...: __________ Elder care is a final frontier in the gender wars. More than 65 percent of older people who need long-term care rely solely on family and friends, and most of those caregivers — estimates range from 59 to 75 percent — are women, according to the Family Caregiver Alliance. A recent study by a Princeton researcher found that daughters step up twice as often as sons, regardless of job status, child-care duties and other variables. The findings suggest that gender and tradition
  9. I agree. If you are trying to change someone you have just started a relationship, you should really considering getting some help. A therapist may be able to help you get away from the relationship.
  10. For all the reasons others have stated, this is a no-go relationship. Flip that fish back into the water.
  11. I actually agree with you here. Same with the use of "feminist" as a pejorative. Funny story: I used to get into long discussions trying to "reason" certain things. Mrs Darcy: [in the middle of a discussion in college] ... there is significant racial and economic discrimination in the criminal justice system. Person: No there isn't. Stop being a tree hugger. Mrs Darcy: No, I can prove it. [site statistically significant evidence.] Person: Well, that group commits more crimes. Mrs Darcy: Well, not necessarily. No for X. Yes for Y. (Let's say Y is a drug like marijuana.
  12. I don't think anything fruitful would come out of telling him about the exchange. You would be using the "micro" example to make a "macro" larger point. And it seems he would focus on debunking the example. Does Jay's temp job impact his unemployment insurance payments?
