OK, 40's, never married, introverted, "not good at reading signals". I'm just going to throw this out there...maybe it's completely off base. I have a friend who dated someone like this, and it turn more »

Although I think Meredith makes some good observations here, I would wonder why this other woman felt that she had to drop this information about your husband on you? Why would she barge into your pe more »

If this is a hoax, I hope the people involved are caught, and are called to account for a very heartless act.

True enough. She doesn't know unless/until she actually has the conversation with him. I think that this is a good example of the dangers of asking a friend -- even a well-intentioned friend -- abou more »

The way this situation is going, it's not healthy for any of you. If you really want to be with this person, and are thinking in terms of the rest of your life, you've got to fight for it. I had a f more »

Well, if he's not trying, then you've got to take care of yourself. You don't say exactly why these other jobs didn't work out, but at this point -- since you've talked to him about it, and it's stil more »

It might not be a really expensive event that he has in mind. He knows you, and he probably realizes that something expensive wouldn't be your style. You can have a very special, very personalized p more »

Yep, "the trust is kind of gone". That's the most important sentence in the letter. You have great times together, but if trust isn't there, what kind of a relationship is it, really?

This is horrible. I grieve for this family -- I can't begin to imagine. To all those gun owners out there: Is your gun and ammo safely secured, right now? Do you know where the key is to the cabine more »

In regards to the title: "madest thou look! Here endeth the trick!"

OK, I knew someone like this...*talking* about therapy (it's "under consideration") isn't going to help. It doesn't sound like laziness to me. Therapy, maybe some antianxiety medication may help. I more »

You raise a good point, Jim. I don't know if there really is a way to keep someone who is hearing "compromise on your principles and go kiss some (rear end) to find a job". I think most, if not all, more »

I have been going through the 2014 What Color is Your Parachute, (Bolles, 10 Speed Press), and it is excellent -- he says basically what's being said here. Networking is *very* important, and that co more »

Consider yourself very, very lucky that you've got a supportive mate. It sounds like he's rebounding from unemployment in a way that shows good character, even if it means a (temporary?) pay cut. Do more »

I think it would have been better if the brother had told her that this guy had asked for her number, and had let her know -- in advance -- of his reputation. Then, let *her* decide whether she wants more »
Posted 01/14/2014 10:08:02 EST
Yep...This is what I was thinking. He thinks she's career-driven, so won't commit fully to a child? I'm guessing here...Having said that, what kind of a father would *he* be, if he can make statemen more »
Posted 01/03/2014 09:54:32 EST
Well, I think she reacted appropriately; I agree with Meredith on that. You say you've been exclusive "for weeks"...if I recently had a conversation about exclusivity with someone, taking down my pro more »

OK, you don't trust him (and there's a good reason for that), and that's driven you to snoop. Do you need any more information than that?
Posted 12/31/2013 09:27:58 EST
Look, you're vulnerable; going through a divorce. These things happen. But look at what he said: he's "reevaluating" his marriage. You don't say in your letter whether he's told you that he has se more »

I think my arteries just clogged...
Posted 12/26/2013 09:34:16 EST
When you say "confronted", do you mean you challenged him in his beliefs, or do you mean you just talked to him? I'm hoping you just talked to him. If he is not interested in Church and that's "a hu more »

See, this is why I think the T should take of the equipment it already has, before spending huge amounts of money on new stations, etc. There are now a whole lot of people who are late for work, miss more »

Well, this is not your issue, it's his. As far as I know, technically, there's no inpropriety if she's no longer a student/employee/etc. Tongues may wag; and it may get very uncomfortable if they're more »
Posted 12/03/2013 09:24:06 EST
I have this hunch that part of the reason the LW's feelings are so strong is because she knows he's unavailable...she's got all sorts of fantasies built up about him. Meredith's right about that. Th more »

Lesson number one I learned in AlAnon: You can't rescue. Lesson number 2: Don't try to compete with the bottle, especially if he's not acknowledging the issue. If you're going to be involved with more »
