Sorry not everyone has your pristine American ancestry.

You can't change Jen or her place in the family, you can only change how you react to her. Cry all night because she seemed to be criticizing your choice? Get over it. Truly. You only need to worry ab more »

Stop trying so hard. You probably fit in better than you realize. It's not important for you to be BFF with all of them, just enjoy them when you get together. Some of these people must also have sign more »

I felt like she made a lot of this the kid's fault. Didn't like that.
Posted 04/02/2014 10:14:28 EDT
I reacted to that one too, but I ended up giving her a pass on that (sort of) because I *think* she's referring to the fact that they're not married, ergo, she's not REALLY a step mom. But still, the more »

Me too! I think it's partly how passive she is. It's not enough for her to know what her issues -- she needs to DO something about them. Also, I think she blames the kid for this problem ... she's ba more »

He may not be physically aggressive or violent, but it does sound like by how she keeps silent about his behaviors that upset her that she's still playing out a related dynamic. I agree with you -- sh more »

It sounds like she could speak up a lot more in general. This is probably something she has to work on. Telling him things "nicely" isn't going to cut it -- she has to be firm on what she will and won more »

Yeah, this made me wonder if she even knows the child. I mean, if she doesn't want to be involved, that's fine, but let's not make it the kid's fault.
Posted 04/02/2014 09:30:49 EDT
If you've known him for six years, you knew he had a kid. I don't understand why you got involved with him in the first place if you knew that you did not want children. I get that he's nice to you, b more »

It took four paragraphs to lead to the "reason for the letter"? LW, I'm throwing the therapy card. Your past history with previous boyfriends isn't really relevant to whether you want to be in a relat more »

"I can see us being together a long time, but the whole situation with his child/ex-wife isn't something that I want to deal with." --- I don't know what you want us to say here, LW. You can't have on more »

"I'm not ready to play step-mom, especially to somebody who already appears troubled. " --- Newsflash: Whether she lives with him or not, she is his daughter and you will have to deal with that, and n more »

"that our relationship has been ruined due to misunderstandings."
um, no, your relationship is ruined because you had an addiction. i wonder if you are really dealing with that.

Must be a pair of Scorpios. It's best for everyone to just back away from this ...

"P.S. If you truly cannot agree on kids-versus-no-kids, I feel the default decision should be NO kids. It would be wrong to bring a child into this world unless both of you are on board with that." -- more »
Posted 03/28/2014 10:02:44 EDT
Yeah, I don't agree. I think she really means she resents him NOW for creating a drama in their relationship that could lead to them breaking up. I think she said exactly what she meant.
Posted 03/28/2014 10:01:42 EDT
"I'm pretty sure that what the LW meant was "I don't want to have a child and THEN resent him for it,"" --- I disagree. I think she's saying she resents him RIGHT NOW for changing the terms of their m more »

I do NOT UNDERSTAND if she loves him so much why she never accepted any of his invitations???
Posted 03/27/2014 10:09:57 EDT
Your family is sick of hearing about him because they think of him as the Mr. Snuffalupagus of relationships. 25 years and they've never seen or met him? They don't believe this love exists except as more »
Posted 03/27/2014 10:00:22 EDT
Seriously, I was wondering this, too. If she wants him so bad, why has she never made it happen? more »
Posted 03/27/2014 09:52:06 EDT
I don't understand this as a love letter. Am I missing something? When was the last time she even saw this guy? It doesn't sound like they've gotten together in 25 years.
Posted 03/27/2014 09:49:53 EDT
"The timing was just never right for the both of us to connect."
Sounds like it's still not right. Have you even been out on a single date?
Posted 03/19/2014 01:51:45 EDT
It's okay, go back to sleep, grampy. Nothing to see here.
Posted 03/19/2014 01:28:24 EDT
That's what happens when you're the only celebrity in town. Why move to LA where they're just two in a million famous people. Here, they can be the king and queen of all Boston media.
