In 25 years, nobody will need to drive. Autonomous (driverless) vehicles are a thing and aren’t too far off. They’re already test markets for seniors.
LW, I’m sorry your sister is sick and her life is shortened. That sucks and I don’t know how’d I feel in your position. However, you threw me when you replied and said all you can think about is your care when your elderly. That’s not your cousins job, nor her future children’s. It’s not even guaranteed your kids will help if you had them. The best anyone can do is prepare and make plans for themselves. I’m not having children and certainly don’t expect my nieces and nephew to take care of me when I’m old.
Likely, since you and your parents are taking care of your sister, this has prompted you to think about your own mortality and what that looks like. You’re concentrating on the wrong thing. As others have said, please build a full life for yourself. You can do that while still caring for your sister. You deserve to be happy too. I think a support group is a great idea. There are also plenty forum posts on making new friends as an adult. Check them out.

I’ve moved twice as an adult to new cities and states and both times it took at least six months to both make friends and feel settled.
What helps me is finding a rhythm that works. Like sunday mornings I like to go grocery shopping and stopping at a fancy coffee place. Saturday’s, I like a fitness class then lunch. Those habits stick and feel good to me. Also, putting myself out there. I joined meet ups. I invited myself to things. It may feel weird at first, but it works!
As others have said, I would give it a few more months.
Yes again to counseling. It helps. Really. It does.
Also, you don’t have to be a rapist to creep women out.
I keep thinking about this letter and there letter yesterday on the main page about the serial cheater. The later, I could handle. This is much more concerning.
I don’t think you really understand that you’re trying to control this woman’s behaviors and reactions. You’re disguising this control as a need to know to better yourself or concern for other men’s feelings. She’s being nice to you now because she’s afraid of you.
If a guy that I was casually dating said to me what you said to this woman, about her having to tell some other guy she’s not looking for exclusivity, I’d run far, far away. That’s super controlling and frankly, scary. She probably picked up on these vibes and decided she was no longer interested and tried to let you down easy. Even you contacting her about this party or show was unnecessary. You’re not making her jealous. I guarantee what’s she thinking is I wish this guy would leave me alone.
Again, if you can’t deal with what are normal dating behaviors, you shouldn’t date until you fix it.

Yeah. ParaGard is the non-hormonal one. My dr advised me against it because I already had heavy periods and vomit-inducing cramps for exactly the reason you said Fanny. I was concerned with the hormones with the Mirena, but she said the dose was so low, that it would be nothing like the pill. She was right! And I love the Mirena.
I swear, I don’t work for the company. There are just so many articles about how people don’t like IUD’s and I’m now an advocate.
I honestly do think you should consider counseling.
And I don’t recommend dating until you do some work on yourself.
Even the comment about another guy charming her more so she chose him is a little cringeworthy.

I took off one day. Again, there’s no one answer. Every woman’s body is different.
If you’re that worried about pain, ParaGard might not be a good bet and you should consider a different iud.
I hate to break it to you hhans, but not everything in life will be made clear to you. You’re going to have to learn to live with a little ambiguity. If that’s impossible, seek therapy.
People say and do things all the time and then change their mind. She told you no in a polite way. That’s all you need to know.
Another entertaining read this week. Much appreciated.
“DDWKS?” … Superb. I give it an enthusiastic two thumbs up.
No breakouts here. Or weight gain.
If your insurance covers an IUD, you can always have it inserted and if you don’t like it after a few months, you can have it removed.
