[ - ] I dated a guy who was dating to marry. I was 34 and wasn't marriage minded. It took a month before it clicked he was doing and saying all the marriage stuff. It repelled me and I sabotaged it. Anyone know what I mean? 2 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You can't really sabotage something that you don't want anyway. I suspect that if you were in love with him you would have been more "marriage minded" at the time. I got married at 36 and had a blast in my dating years, even through a heartbreak. Still, I wasn't marriage minded until I fell madly for my dh at 35. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] our lightbulbs burn out all the time (example: have gone through three in the bathroom in two weeks, replaced a full track light in the entryway twice in 6 months) and fuses blow pretty often (if we use the toaster with the kitchen light on, for example).

NP: actually, in reality, most of the girls stuff is in reaction to the guys stuff. i've yet to meet a married woman (no less a married MOM) who feels "entitled" to go off and do girls stuff on a whim. many manrried men/dads do. "this is my annual golf trip/vegas weekend/weekly poker night/whiskey night - you knew about this when we got married". in fact i've actually heard men say that you have to get htose things established BEFORE getting married so that you are entitled to them once you're married. but the truth is, that once you are married and esp once you have kids, your life is no longer entireley your own and you aren't "entitled" to do things just bc you did them before. and if you want to do them, you should at least consider your family in planning them. so yeah, i think a lot of women started doing stuff bc they should get some gilrs time if dh was doing guys stuff all the time. but those women arrange for sitters, leave the kids w grandparents, etc. adn run the dates by htheir dh about 100x before they make plans" - APPLES AND ORANGES!!!!!

If there's one thing I've seen about Trump, it's that he's more than willing to say whatever it is he thinks his supporters want to hear, no matter what it is, even if it directly contradicts something he was just very publicly saying previously in the campaign. Or just yesterday. He doesn't have a cohesive campaign, he has a stage show. The craziest thing about it is that everybody who even moderately supports him seems to sincerely believe that when he sounds somewhat rational he's really only lying to everyone else, and the stuff he says that they support is what he'll really do. If he weren't literally playing with the future of the country, you could almost respect him for his skill as the most skilled used car salesman of all time. He is selling the shit out of empty promises that won't pan out, and people are gladly lining up to buy his crap. [ Reply | More ]

Too bad so sad. It's important for all the angry Muslims to realize that they weren't kicked out of the country, only denied naturalization at this point in time. And nobody forced them to move to Sw in the first place. IMO, they should have settled in the US/Canada where people can more or less do as they please so long as they aren't disturbing the peace or harming anyone. Or they could have tried harder to fake assimilating until they got their citizenship. -can/am mom [ Reply | More ]
