I read cards, which does not (necessarily) involve being psychic, so no, I don't "know" what you are worried about. The cards do show that you have reason to be worried though. You have resources at your disposal, but don't seem to know how to use them. You're withdrawing from people while secretly hoping a wise leader, a father figure type, will reveal himself. At the same time, you're mistrustful of people around you, and the cards say there is a male figure around who may be out to deceive you. I think the cards are saying that you are afraid of making a big mistake, that it involves money, the stakes are high and the risks are real. You need to do your own fact finding now, make your own decisions and don't be influenced by charming men. Sound familiar at all? [ Reply | More ]

Curious about sweater dresses. I feel like they only look good on really thin people. At 5'5" and 117 lbs, I actually feel way to curvy for them. Am I styling it wrong? [ Reply | More ]

I actually don't think it has to do with thinness so much as lack of curves. I do not think they look good on people with breasts and/or hips. If you are built like a ruler (whether thin or thick) I think they look okay. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I'm married, 29 years old, and a mother of 3 kids. Earlier this year, I started a graduate program. My DH just finished his PhD last year, so it's not like I'm coming in completely alien to the situation. Most of my cohort range in age from 23-28. We're all very friendly with one another, and they know I'm married with kids. However, there are CONSTANT comments like "Ugh, I hope I'm never cursed with a child". I was at lunch with two girls from my cohort a few days ago. One of them said something about hating children and never wanting them, which was met with a giant high-five from the other girl. It's just always stuff like this. I always nod and say, "It's not for everyone. I understand that." It's just pissing me off at this point, though. Should I say something? What would you do? 37 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You need to come to terms with the fact you are older and in a different stage of life (with having kids) than your classmates. If you were ok with the fact that you are different than them, this would not bother you. You sound like you slightly resent their freedom OR you think you are superior to them. They are probably reacting to that more than anything else. [ Reply | More ]

How does feeling insulted that they said they hope they're never cursed with kids or talking about how shitty life would be with children make me sound like I'm jealous of them or superior to them? I find it rude that they're able to openly insult me. I've never once said a word to them about it, so they're not "reacting" to anything. [ Reply | More ]
