[ - ] It is very interesting to see how differently people behave around different people. The "shining star" of my high school, who was a great friend of mine and nothing but respectful towards me and the girls I knew went to jail for raping two young women. The boy I dated sophomore year, who never laid a finger on me, beat the shit out of his next girlfriend. Who people are around you isn't necessarily an indication of what they are capable of. 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I don't have these extreme examples but I have had several cases where I think very highly of someone but later learn they are rude and jerks to others. Or cases where I think someone is a jerk the moment I meet them but they are a favorite of other people. Some people are real chameleons. [ Reply | More ]

Mine was a married guy, I'm the product of an affair. We met once or twice when I was little but I didn't really remember much about him. I attended a top boarding school and ended up getting into his alma mater (his other daughter was rejected, which played into the dynamic). A week or so before I got the letter he contacted me with the good news (he is friendly with a lot of people from our alma mater) and asked to see me. We met up for dinner and it was so weird. He asked me very impersonal questions (what do you want to do with your life, what are your hobbies, etc.) Then he told me I should be a lawyer and handed me a check for 5500 dollars.

My dad was a deadbeat, left when I was little. I married a man with money and it ended up in some magazine. His aunt showed him the article and he tried to get contact with me, after years of not wanting to know me and not giving my mom a dime. I told him to go to hell. [ Reply | More ]

Weirdly, I know several people who have been in this situation, a couple of times due to parental alienation. One was a guy who had two biological sisters (half) he'd never met--products of his dad's earlier marriage. He got in touch, they met and it went fine but they don't have much in common and I don't think communicate often. Another is a friend whose father had other children in a different relationship and now that all the parents are deceased, she reached out. One sibling responded and they have a real bond now; one wants nothing to do with her. And I know two women who reached out to their fathers after years of no contact and gained a different understanding of what went down during the divorces. Both are now in regular touch with their fathers (and their half-siblings). One of the mothers has not reacted well but also can't deny what happened. [ Reply | More ]

depends -- if he's taking the shuttle, absolutely. if he's taking a regular flight, he can still make it if he has priority clearance. He can still make it even if he doesn't have priority clearance, but goes to the front of the security line and begs the folks to let him jump the line. But he will have to hurry/run. He basically has no more than 15 minutes to get through security and to the gate. GL! [ Reply | More ]

It's not just one drink over the course of the evening but I know when he gets out of work so it's only a drink or two at the time we speak and plan for the next day. He's usually in bed by 9.

sounds totally, totally f'kd up but I have problems blacking out after a couple of drinks, well maybe after 3. Even if it's over the course of an evening. So weird and freaks me out so much. Did some research recently and, it doesn't speak to a larger problem it's just that this happens with some people. I actually hide it from my dh a bit because it's so embarrassing. And, I've cut way down on my drinking because it freaks me out so much. Whole evenings are gone from my memory. [ Reply | More ]
