[ - ] I was at beach for a weekend with old friends. One friend brought along her new, nice, rich boyfriend. She is 45 and a single mom. My other friend, who has no children and a great DH, went for a walk with the new, rich boyfriend who opened up about his new girlfriend (our mutual friend). Our friend told him to run -- that his girlfriend (our longtime friend) does not appreciate him and is using him for money. While this is somewhat true based on private conversations, I am very mad at her for ruining my friend's (last few) chances at finding a good dad for her son and someone with money. My friend who gabbed says she's honest and "can't stand" people being used. My DH thinks she did the right thing. But I'm appalled. Who is right? 39 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

op: This is what upsets me because my friend self-presents as a 'responsible' person and to be honest I think she's just frustrated that our mutual friend (who is beautiful) keeps landing on her feet in the guy department. It's so passive aggressive to me and I feel like telling our mutual friend what she said about her to her new boyfriend.... And at this point there's a kid involved. Not cool! [ Reply | More ]

Please, at 45 she'd be irresponsible to pick a partner because she's sexually attracted to him (NP from below). If she still gives him good sex, it is her choice. What is she going to do, date a car mechanic whom she finds attractive? How many professional men of 45+ with a lot of money are sexually attractive? But what that money can get you can be a turn-on.

NP: Disagree. Gold-digging is in the eye of the beholder. If she liked him and was prepared to be a good wife to him, and he was happy with her also, what is the problem? If she's planning to divorce him in 3 years for the money, OK. Otherwise, every relationship is a compromise and everyone gets something out of choosing to be with their partner. And everyone has some complaints - doesn't mean we "don't appreciate" each other. [ Reply | More ]

Does she spit up a lot? Is she fussy? Doesn't sleep well? Wants to be held when she sleeps? Hates the carseat. My DB1 had silent reflux. At first we thought it was just spitting up, but then she stopped eating much but we never connected the two with her ped. I wish we had given her Zantac. DB3 had the same spitting up and I immediately went to Zantac. She now is the best eater of the 3, at 18 months. Look into whether it could be reflux. It can cause an oral aversion. [ Reply | More ]

op resents this child because she IS sweet, kind, and beautiful. In other words, nothing like op. (Notice quiet is seen as a negative.) But darn it, op can spell grateful and thus her superiority is assured! [ Reply | More ]

You don't know that. Some HS couples get married, though they wait until after college or grad school. It's not that abnormal to have strong feelings for that person, even if young. If it were, all of Facebook wouldn't be full of married people wishing they could marry their HS sweetheart or trying to hook up with them again and divorce actual spouse. [ Reply | More ]
