[ - ] What’s the UB term for Great-Great-Grampa, DGGG? I found the strangest thing going through family antiques and papers in the attic, an old manuscript that starts like this: “From the desk of M. Martin: The day the blood finally evacuated by bowels was a difficult one from the start, but nothing could have prepared me for the ordeal I would suffer as the hours progressed and I found myself assaulted on all sides by my erstwhile colleagues. Little had I realized when I confessed to them the desperate state of my exhausted anal cavity that I would receive from them not courtesy and support but hostility and even disbelief…” M. Martin was my DH’s great-grandad or great-great-grandad I think. Strange no? 6 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

From another page of the manuscript: "It was that evening that the gulls came. My mother held me close. “Don’t look, baby.” They pecked at the glass. They scratched with their tiny talons. They cawed. The clamor was terrible. How did they know? How could they know? We sat for what felt like an eternity. The roof of the shed began to groan under the weight of thousands of birds. When the plywood gave way, my mother shielded me beneath her body. It was over in a matter of seconds." [ Reply | More ]

So, she stays with this guy, gets pregnant by him almost immediately after his awful acts, and then devotes her life to studying child sexual behavior-- what do you think?

I agree it sounds like there is some dark sh*t going on in that family. That said, if you can maintain an arm's length distance then you may learn quite a lot from this professor because I imagine her curiosity and interest goes well beyond academic. The danger is that she could go down a very wrong path with a theory or idea and you might not want to follow her there. good luck! [ Reply | More ]

It has been this way always, and I have implemented every strategy that I could find. There is structure and routines in our household, positive encouragement- you name it. Our child simply struggles with self control and has to have his needs met immediately. When he is hungry, bored, or tired it becomes worse. We have had discussions about it, and he realizes that he is unreasonable, but says he wishes he could help it, but he just can't- not matter how hard he tries. So I have decided to go on that, and let him know that I love him regardlessly. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I tested yesterday at 11 dpo with a first response early test, and it was negative. Is 11 days too early to test? Is it most likely truly negative at this point? :( 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

They usually do register a positive at 11dpo, but I would give it a couple of days to see if you ovulated late. By 13 dpo, you should def have a positive. [ Reply | More ]

OP: my DH is very playful with me verbally but not physically. Is that strange? He's just not a touchy-feely person. [ Reply | More ]

Why is that everyone's answer to everything on here? Gay or cheating. Some men, actually many men, just aren't that touchy-feely. [ Reply | More ]

Sounds like my entire patrolinial line, dating bad to the first known dad, Jean, somewhere on the vague border between France and Prussia. [ Reply | More ]

I don't believe France and Prussia shared a border... [ Reply | More ]

Although I could be wrong, the borders shifted do much. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Divorced 5 years with nice settlement that will carry me for a while. Met a nice man 3 years ago who was also divorced who lives on his boat (ex wife got the house) and he makes his way giving sailing lessons and crewing charters and transports. A lot in cash so he doesn't have to give his ex anything else (also they don't have any kids). I took a few sailing lessons from him and I was gun shy about a new relationship so held back. I still get his email updates from his sailing instruction business and it's obvious he's still single. He's currently moored in Port Jefferson and I'm wondering if I should email him back. His life sounds so adventurous. Carribbean in the winter; New England in the summer. Am I being crazy? Yes I've had wine. 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

sigh. In the back of my mind I keep thinking as soon as I hitch my ride to this guy he's going to hitch his to me. He talks way too much about stuff going wrong with his boat. In a movie that's romantic that he's handy in a jam. In real life I guess it means he's going to raid my savings to fix his boat. Also I'm not attractive enough to sincerely believe his interest in me. Oh well. [ Reply | More ]

Good for a fling? Here is the thing though, getting paid in cash "so he doesn't have to give his ex anything else," also means, "so he doesn't have to pay taxes." I would not be okay with either of these things. [ Reply | More ]
