definitely quit.. apparently decaf is worse than caffeinated because of all the processes and chemicals they add to it to make it decaf [ Reply | More ]

one of the starbucks baristas told me to get the sumatra decaf (its made w their clover machine-some stores will have it, some will not) its a more natural process w/out the chemicals for decaf. pregnant at 15 weeks and still drinking decaf :) [ Reply | More ]

just a guess but the object of sex according to the bible is supposed to be to procreate and gays cannot naturally do that. masturbation was also a sin for wasting the seed. [ Reply | More ]

Your reaction is understandable and normal. You just need to find a way to cope with it internally to make yourself feel better. I was once in your shoes, and the other side is far from easy. You may want to take comfort in what you have, and try to let go of desires, expectations. It isn't easy, but the "Buddhist way" is often a wise one. Best wishes to you, either way. [ Reply | More ]

I don't see why not. It's a sale not a rental so it's not as if you'll have to deal with him indefinitely. Also, since it's just his office that means less congestion for the building. Sounds like you're in touch with him too (or is it total coincidence?) so he can't be that bad. [ Reply | More ]

NP: Thank you for this last part. My situation is a bit different, but still relevant. My dad walked out when I was older, late 20's (literally vanished - cleaned out bank account and cut ties from all his kids (including one with a new DW who was 6MO at the time)), even his 85 year old mother did not know where he was). Missed my wedding, never met his grandkids. People/authorities were looking for him (due to professional breaches, missed child support for younger kids), and finally "found" him 8 years later. He has reached out to all of us and I decided that I just don't want him in my life or my kids' lives. I'm not angry and truly only wish him the best, but I have had to create a life without having a father and have worked too hard getting over him to go back. But I have a lot of guilt about it….

Yes. My mother gave me to distant cousins when I was born. She found me again when I was in my early 20's. I didn't know her or know I was adopted until she told me. We tried to have a relationship but it just didn't work out. I had gone too long without her, I guess. [ Reply | More ]

I don't have a relationship. We just didn't click — I felt like he was some old dude I wouldn't even be interested in talking to if I met him on the street. Just had no feelings for him and no obligation to try and make it work. He was really defensive and never took responsibility for what he did. I had worked it out on my own years before. He missed the bus. [ Reply | More ]

My mother was abandoned by her mother when she was a toddler. She called my mother again when my mom was in her early 30's and said she wanted to meet her again. My mom met up with her and I still remember being small (like 4) and spending a weekend or something with my biological grandmother. I also remember that there was a very angry teenager there (my half uncle i guess) who was very rough and mean behind the scenes. Anyway it was a short window, and then I guess my bio grandmother told my mother she had decided it was a bad idea to reconnect and she wanted to shut the door again. [ Reply | More ]

My father abandoned my mom when she as pregnant with me. Fast forward 10 years later he was already married and had a dd who was dying of Leukemia and they couldn't find a bone marrow donor. Guess who he decided he wanted to meet? He fought for me and got joint custody. I was a perfect match for his dd. After his dd recovered I was nothing to him. I won a scholarship to university and I stopped all contact at 18. He tried contacting me again when I was in my early 30's but my mom would not give him my address or #. [ Reply | More ]

Kind of -- biological father was a minimal part of my life from age 5 to adulthood.
