[ - ] My friend from high school and her husband just became foster parents. They refer to the little girl by only her first initial and only post pictures of her from the back where you can see the back of her heard but not her face. I wonder if this is a rule for all foster parents or more of a recommendation or if it's just something they decided to do on their own for the child's safety. I imagine the little girl's bio mother in in jail or dead but maybe she's out of jail on probation and there is concern that the bio mom will kidnap the little girl if she finds her through social media? Anyone have experience with the foster care system and know the answer to this? 9 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

You are so typical of my 40-somethign single friends. You don't WANT to be married. You throw every excuse out there and create obstacles to intimacy. It's fine to not want kids--there are many out there like you, but I don't think that's your issue. I think you are repressed and afraid. Therapy will help you immensely in every aspect of your life.

I think your logic makes sense, but I think you will find someone that works for you, you just haven't met him yet [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] WWYD: 15 yo DDs (twins) both have dearly wanted to get into acting for some time. Have done little things, taken classes, and have sent in submissions w/ little response, extras on a movie. Just got an email to set up a meeting w/ an agent but they're only asking to see one. Important details - the other one (twin they aren't asking for) has been going through a hard time, feels her twin prettier than she is, a little depressed, more withdrawn and down and she's the one sadly who's skin breaking out etc. I do everything I can to boost her up, buy her skin creams, cheer her on but she doesn't do much to help herself. Also her BFF kind of pulled away from her this year and she's really down about that. If she knows they don't want to see her, she'll be crushed and I'm worried. But first twin could get a shot at something she really wants. Do I just bury this and never tell them or move forward and deal w/ the emotional consequences for other twin. I emailed to see if 2nd twin can come to be considered but ugh - who knows. TIA, thanks 26 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I have twins. Your DD needs to learn to live in real world. One of mine is a superstar. The other is not. However, other learns to find ways he thrives. Do not screw one for the sack of the other. You will not help one, only hurt the other. [ Reply | More ]

Those are the odds of making any money, like doing a few commercials, guest staring a few times a year on TV shows, summerstock. And of course once a woman turns 35 parts dry up. Also, there are literally 10 parts for a man as there are for woman. Do the math, movies, cop shows, tons of male parts. OP is suffering from magical bleeding. [ Reply | More ]

She will have other disappointments. Nothing will likely come of it anyway. So in the end, the less attractive twin won't be affected. [ Reply | More ]
