I don’t get it either. He isn’t allowed to make your kids laugh in your presence? Why is it disrespectful or an overstep?April 18, 2023 at 9:02 pm in reply to: Advice re partners ex #1119715
I echo others and think you’re crazy jealous. It’s weird that you didn’t want him in close proximity to her and wanted him to go outside. You were in a public place.
I’ll also echo others and say snooping isn’t normal or healthy.
I’ve snooped twice in my life. One time, I was being super insecure. He gave me zero reasons to feel insecure. I just was. And I was young. The second time, it was because it was a bad relationship that I should have gotten out of much, much sooner than I did. Therapy helped with that one. A lot.
My husband, I’ve never snooped. I don’t know his passwords. He has female friends that he hangs with. It’s all good.
You haven’t mentioned any reason that he’d make you feel insecure. From my experience, there’s definitely a difference between being super jealous and real cause. You should work on it so you can have a solid, happy relationship.April 15, 2023 at 5:34 pm in reply to: Tell me it’s ok to divorce #1119660
I’m so sorry you’re going through this bloody mediocrity. I hope you find some peace and heal. That’s a really rough time. I’m glad you’re seeing a therapist and don’t feel guilty. It’s shitty all around.

I’d LOVE a red Chanel purse. If I ever purchased one, it would def be vintage.April 9, 2023 at 10:32 am in reply to: DW Community Catch-up Thread (Formerly ‘Anyone going on awesome dates?’) #1119580
Ooh. That sucks about the sweater!! Good to know.
I bought my first pair of Mother jeans in January. I like them, but am still happy with my normal Madewell jean purchase. A lot more affordable too.
I used my birthday Anthro % off for the Mother jeans.

I’m a fan of Cuyana and Emerson Fry. I get compliments when I where things from both, especially Emerson Fry. The black linen dress I bought there last summer is definitely a winner. Any day now, I should be receiving a pair of navy wide leg linen pants from Cuyana. I’m also obsessed with their silk dress. I own in two colors and wear a lot. My first one I’ve had for over five years now. Their Pima cotton stuff is really nice too.
For affordable basics, I hear people like Quince, but haven’t tried them yet. Was considering ordering a couple of the silk camisoles from there. I love the ones I have from Cuyana, but colors are limited and they’re expensive.

Thanks! I’ll look into it.
Yellow is one color that has me perplexed. I can’t do many pale colors, except maybe a peachy orange or a few light pinks. Yellow has to be specific. Maybe a marigold.
A lot of the colors that are popular right now or that I’m seeing in stores are a NO.April 8, 2023 at 3:39 pm in reply to: DW Community Catch-up Thread (Formerly ‘Anyone going on awesome dates?’) #1119565
I think it’d be fun! Where was it, if you don’t mind my asking? Doing it with a couple friends would be a good time.April 8, 2023 at 7:40 am in reply to: DW Community Catch-up Thread (Formerly ‘Anyone going on awesome dates?’) #1119561
That’s fun Copa! Did you enjoy it?March 5, 2023 at 1:04 pm in reply to: DW Community Catch-up Thread (Formerly ‘Anyone going on awesome dates?’) #1118980
I think I’m a warm. I’d have fun doing a color analysis though. Report back Copa!March 2, 2023 at 6:15 pm in reply to: “Can you field one more ‘plus 1’ question?” #1118930
There could be a million reasons why you didn’t get a plus one. Plenty of people don’t add plus ones unless you’re married or in a longer term commitment.
1. I’d do some digging to see if other non-married folks have plus ones, not just you. But don’t be mean about it. It could easily come up in some kind of conversation.
1a. If it’s across the board for everyone, go. Have fun. Your boyfriend can still go. He’s an adult. He can find something to do during the ceremony and reception if you want to make a trip out of it. Or go solo.
2. If it’s literally just only you who didn’t get a plus one, you can decline and then reassess your friendship. Or whatever feels right to you.
Whichever it is, don’t make a stink about it.March 2, 2023 at 9:20 am in reply to: “Should I Stop Seeing My FWB?” #1118917
Wendy is absolutely right. LW, FWB only works if you’re ok with casual sex. I’ve been in both situations:FWB with zero problems because we both just liked having sex w/ one another but knew that’s all it was. And the FWB where he felt like a boyfriend and it took a lot of therapy to unpack that.
This is telling: “We didn’t see each other or do anything for the whole month and then last Sunday I texted him, he came over and we had sex just like the first day. He was looking into my eyes kissing me.”
Just from that sentence alone, it was easy to see you either have more than FWB feelings or on the verge of them.
You didn’t do anything wrong. He didn’t do anything wrong.
This is a good learning experience, especially understanding what you’re comfortable with intimacy-wise. He was honest and respectful of your feelings. Not all people will be.
