[ - ] BF and I currently are in different countries for the next year. Although we both have friends of the opposite sex, we both agreed that we would not spend time alone one on one with these friends while DH was away. We didn't want any insecurity or jealousy to creep in while we can't be with one another. It would be different if DH was in the city, we could all go out together, but for now, that was deemed off limits. DH then sends me a text saying he made plans with a friend (woman) who was going to be in that city and wanted to let me know and make sure it was ok. I got upset bc he didn't ask first...he just did it then told me. He showed me the email exchange and he didn't even mention me in the emails (he has not seen this woman since he has met me)...and he brought up getting together with her without asking me first. I'm pissed. Would you be? 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No (DH and I did live in different countries for 1-1/2 years), but the fact that you have to make "rules" like this makes me question your relationship. Brace for impact. [ Reply | More ]

I watched a really interesting documentary on what happens to clothes that you donate. It was fascinating. Bottom line: just donate them to Goodwill or wherever. The stuff they can't sell is sold by the pound and shipped overseas. Then those clothes are sorted through and sold on again by the bail and sorted and sold on and sold on..... Eventually, some extremely poor people tiny villages in India or Africa pay a few pennies and are thrilled to get your jeans with stretched out knees. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Why do people think it is appropriate to ask if you were Muslim and start talking about Islam when they find out you are an Arab. This never seems to happen with other ethnicities. I never go wow you are Irish? So you are catholic? Yes this is my picture wearing a catholic outfit, I go to Ireland all the time and here are some pictures of some churches. So do you pray and repent for your sins often? 1 Reply [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I live in a large Arab American neighborhood in Brooklyn and assume that most of the people are Muslim. There is also a large group of Christian Lebanese and Egyptian, so it peaks my curiosity. I disagree that it doesn't happen with other ethniticies. It certainly does and I've been on the receiving end many times. [ Reply | More ]
