"he promises he . . . would [not] put the effort into a long-distance relationship if he didn't think it was worth it." What effort? Serious question, not meant to be snarky. So he texts/calls/skypes more »

That your "first love" slept with other people is NOT a "disturbing relationship event" in your past. (She slept with other people after you two broke up, right, because you said the other 'event' wa more »

sounds like this LW might be the insecure one. She "cried quite a bit" (as we can imagine, of course!) after sis gave her a wedding magazine? She HAS to be friends with everyone?
Posted 04/01/2014 09:24:52 EDT
yeah - the fact that he spent 5 years getting dumped by her for not treating her the way she demanded to be treated (and by dumping him a dozen times to make that point) is just a "misunderstanding." more »
Posted 03/31/2014 09:13:11 EDT
this, and they've broken up at least two times - first because the LW was being a jealous and controlling jerk, then because he "needed space" after another blitz of fighting. And she's noticed he more »

ah, thank you. You said it well. I posted as much in reply to others advising the LW to just keep doing what she's doing without caring so much about the family.
Posted 03/27/2014 11:30:41 EDT
why would she mention his name or say anything about him? She hasn't seen him in decades, he has tried to get them to hook up and she declines (what is she telling the fam? some guy on the internet more »

sounds like she is making it their business so much so that they all 'not just her children but other relatives) are so sick. and. tired. of hearing about this silly and FAKE roller coaster this LW ha more »

well You are Commentor Number ONE today. Best comment. he less than half *ssed it - how much effort is it to send a 3 word text (and how much do you want to bet he didn't even write out "you"). I more »

"all the other cool stuff that women have." Yup and yup. Sucks having to actually make the case to new women to get them to let you in on their other cool stuff, doesn't it?
Posted 03/26/2014 02:17:43 EDT
I agree! And he didn't even text her telling her that he wanted her back - just that he missed her. Whatever. If he did want her back, he would have manned up, made a real phone call to her, and ac more »

I think they just call that "science."
Posted 03/21/2014 10:34:43 EDT
I know, really! What else is she going to say, and what else is he going to say? He might tell her he'll stop looking, but that would be a lie and then he's a liar and their marriage will be stained more »

women do want the men to be honest, but if he's "honestly" into "Furry's Tentacle Revenge / Mouse Stomping Extravaganzaaah," then.....well, we might have a problem....

if she's looking for a way to protect herself from being hurt, deciding a few weeks in that "we are meant to be together" because "i just know" -and he gives you "the most beautiful, fulfilling feelin more »

Great post. LW is (inadvertently?) making a very effective use of the passive voice. If he leaves, time is not going to "be stolen" from you by some magical and evil time thief. HE will have LEFT of more »
Posted 03/17/2014 09:59:05 EDT
he will change his mind about not wanting to get married for another 5 years if he stays with her (mistake) and she keeps dangling the sex in front of him. If he stays, he'll be proposing in 4-6 mont more »

" you are never going to meet her strict guidelines for relationships." this. Because the "guidelines" are changeable at will according to whatever interpretation of the week some old dude (who's n more »

I think moving out was the right thing to do - why stay in that household and make the atmosphere toxic like that recent letter where the guy dumped the woman and yet she was just hanging around until more »

I think starting fresh with someone NEW is the best way to go too. I understand the impulse to return to the known when the unknown is scary and uncomfortable and awkward and just more work to get th more »

this guy being married has absolutely no bearing on his participation in the dating pool. He's probably in a gross speedo, too.
Posted 03/07/2014 09:51:28 EST
Besides making the obviously TERRIBLE decision to marry this douche-canoe letter writer, I don't see too much evidence that she's causing any trouble here. Who in their right mind WOULDN'T "talk down more »
Posted 03/06/2014 09:55:40 EST
She can "process this" till the cows come home . . . in her own apartment, where her kid isn't subjected to the adult role models in his life acting like toddlers. Of course she didn't have a second a more »
