[ - ] My ex husband was unnaturally attractive (like an earlier poster pointed out about Matt Bomer). He is one of those men where whenever he walks into a room, literally every woman, regardless of age or marital status, wants to pounce on him. Unfortunately our marriage did not work out, but I constantly think about him (sometimes just admiring his face, other times my thoughts are entirely sexual). Right now I just feel like catching a cab and going over to his apartment, I know he just got home from work about now... ugh. 30 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

One of the worst nannies we ever had in our home came from the irish agency, you are a complete waste of time and apply absolutely no screening or filter. Once a parent calls you just post the details on sittercity and craigs list and then pretend you know these people. [ Reply | More ]

I've used them for all my 4 nannies - wouldn't use anyone else. All the references were checked and I got a full background check for each. Even helped me during emergencies. [ Reply | More ]

nanny agencies are employment agencies - what are your expectations? They screen and select so you don't have to wade through the mess on these other sites. They can decipher the the real from the fake - that why I use them. Then again if you're a SAOM you may have the time to do this. I don't. [ Reply | More ]
