[ - ] Moved to a new town last year and became friendly with this woman - for the 1st few months we made lots of plans etc but for the last few months she has been blowing me off - cancelling plans. I think her other friends think I am not"cool" enough for them - I don't want to deal with this High School BS - she is haveing a party in a few weeks - I originally said yes but now I am thinking of cancelling - I really feel it is healthier for me not to get caught up in this type of pettiness - should I cancel and our ds are friends - how do I handle that? 4 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Maybe you did too much too soon. Go to the party, but don't "hang" on the host. Meet other people and have a good time. [ Reply | More ]

you are getting caught up if you cancel. she invited you, you said yes, so you go. maybe afterwards you don't keep pursuing as much and let her make the next move. sometimes friendships have an ebb and flow also. you might just be super self conscious. i'm sure you have other issues of not feeling cool enough and are projecting on this situation. if it is true, than it will surface and she won't initiate getting together with you anymore. then you can move on and find better friends.

Going to Massachussetts is too far for us, so we're looking at NY & Ct upstate. Wondering what Litchfield is LIKE...the tone of the place? Not interested in the Hamptons scene--and it's just really $$$. [ Reply | More ]

Litchfield is wonderful. The locals aren't always the warmest to NY'ers, but it doesn't bother me. I seriously considered moving there fulltime but decided against. Lots to do, good restaurants, beautiful country and close! [ Reply | More ]

What is popular to do there...like Millbrook is horsey for example. You'll probably laugh, but part of the reason I'm interested in it is that the architecture of the area is so darn gorgeous. I love antiquing, love a good library & good bookstore. Like playing tennis...are there community courts or only country clubs? Any cultural stuff in the summer, like Tanglewood in the Berkshires?

Your life changes because it isn't about you anymore. Your focus and priorities change which may effect the way you feel about going back to work. After they're born, it's all about the baby. [ Reply | More ]

THat's just it - you really can't predict how you are going to feel about being a parent/having a kid/working, etc. until it happens. And your emotions will be ALL over the place the first month or two, so don't make any rash decisions. Just try to go with the flow and keep an open mind. [ Reply | More ]
