  • commented on the question What should i do about my roommate/friend and everything else?! am I wrong?!
    Go to your school*s housing office and tell them what's going on. You're contract with them is that you're paying for a double occupancy room with another female student. Sharing a small room with a third roomate ( of the opposite sex ) is NOT what you signed up for. Tell them you want to switch rooms.

  • commented on the question where can I go with my girlfriend?
    Sounds to me like you're doing everything right! There is no "magic" place that will make her want to take this friendship to another level.

    Love often grows from friendship. The worst thing you can do right now is be pushy or needy. Just keep doing what you're doing. Only time will tell if this is meant to be. If you're still just friends by autumn then it will be time to accept it.

  • commented on the question Follow my heart and lose my friends and family... or lose the love of my life but keep my friends and family?
    At the end of the day, the only one who can live your life is you. Making decisions just to keep others happy will only lead to resentment and regret.
    That being said, you have to understand and respect your family's concerns. They're not only struggling with what this means regarding your own sexuality, but also that your choice means you won't have children with your partner or enjoy as much support and understanding from society at large. Most large cities have active LGBT communities, but it is still a lonely and isolating way to live.
    Your relationship is still young. You need more time to figure out if this is what you truly want to do.

  • commented on the question How do I deal with a messy man (and future messy kids)?
    You have to make it clear in your own mind that it is not your job to clean up after him. You also have to understand that he will not change.
    So where does that leave you? Before you move in with him, both of you have to come up with a plan. Start by agreeing that you don't expect him to morph into "Mr Clean" and he can not expect you to clean up his messes. Then come up with a budget that includes a weekly house cleaner. I think the extra expense is well worth it as it will save you both a lot of resentment.

    You have doubts, so it's not the right time. Once you're ready, you won't need anyone else's opinion on it.

    It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt. Opposite sex friendships are great, except when they cross the line into flirting and innuendos. Messaging about how fun it would be to have sex together is not "friend zone".

    Hope you'll both walk away from this with a lesson learned. Grinchly, if a guy's interested, he'll never use "friendship" as an excuse not to get closer.

    Wellthissucks, don't play with peoples' hearts. It's flattering to have so many female friends to flirt with, but you're not treating them like real friends.

    Since you're approaching this as "going along with him" as opposed to deciding for yourself, without feeling pressured, the answer is a resounding NO

  • commented on the question Girlfriend's parents not keen on me at all, girlfriend very reluctant to help solve the issue
    Not all families are happy and supportive. There is nothing wrong with adults who choose to distance themselves from a dysfunctional family. She seems to have chosen not to share everything with her parents, and that sounds fair enough seeing as they aren't supportive and even go as far as not talking about her in a positive way.
    The problem is that you don't approve with the way she's chosen to cope with this (avoidance) and she could very well end up feeling backed into a corner.
    Ask yourself if you'd be happy with just her or if you need a wife who comes with a "normal" and supportive family.

    Chiiiilies, how long to do you a new carpet will look good in your house? You also haven't taught them to be respecful and careful with things that don't belong to them. I wouldn't blame your husband for not replacing the carpet or buying nice things for the house until after the kids have moved out!

    You are wrong waterjen. Love and compassion towards your husband should make you see how cruel and unreasonable your "no sex" stance is.
    You don't like his "solution" ( neither would I ), but at least he's trying to save your marriage. The ball is now in your court and the clock is ticking. I think it's high time for you to see your doctor and a therapist.
    Before you dismiss this by thinking no one "understands" you, I'm also a postmenopausal woman married over 26 yrs.

    Halfwitty,you're a lucky man. Your wife loves you and she's doing this because she wants to keep you around. Quit complaining and find a sunblock that is "dry".

    Getting a pet should be a unanimous decision. What nerve to bring in an animal against your partner's wishes then expect him to "pull his weight". Sheesh.... stoop and scoop momma.

  • commented on the question Insurance form asks for weight-is it wrong that I'm upset my wife won't tell me her weight to finish the form?
    You have every right to be upset. Your wife is very lucky to be covered under your insurance! How about letting her write down her weight on the form and she can then seal the envelope. Short of having her step on a scale in front of you, you'll have to take her at her word, wether she tells you or writes it on the form herself.

    How far are you from the closest larger town? I would look up clubs that typically attract men; amateur sport clubs such as rowing, archery, climbing ect. Oh, and golf! A lot of single men I know spend weekends on the course!

  • commented on the question Girl-friend spends more time with her friends than with me. Why?
    You're the one who's conflicted, you don't know what you want. You want to be with her, but you don't want to fall in love. You want "friends with benefits" but want her to love you and put you ahead of everything else. I read your question twice and you just seem "wishy washy". Sometimes you just have to say what you really mean. Do you love her? Do you want to take a chance and see where this goes? Yes or no? If she's getting that same mixed message then it's no wonder she's not willing to make you #1 priority.

    5 years ago you accepted a painting in lieu of repayment. A deal's a deal, sorry. It was up to you to sue her back in 2006 when she broke your first deal ( repayment in a week). The last agreement is the one that stands.

  • commented on the side Squeaky Doors In The House
    I'm siding with him, maybe having been married over 25yrs to a man who never, ever remembers to fix sqeaky doors and other small honey-do items has biased my view on this... He does take care of the BIG things, like financially supporting his family, making sure my sons and I were safe and loved. Yeah yeah, would be nice if he remembered but since the sqeaks bother you more then him then why wait and stew? Squirtting a little shot of WD40 isn't beyond the scope of routine housekeeping.
