Dear God, My Mother Has Alzheimer’s Disease, Please Help Her Die
In love with someone who hurt me. Convinced myself that I could make things better. Stayed on my best behavior. Given myself pep talks about why I deserve more. Reached out to other people for help. Tried drinking until I was numb. Losing pieces of myself. Like grains of sand falling through an hourglass. Counting down until I was completely empty and numb.

A female reader, anonymous, writes 31 March I know this is an old post, but it appears that people are still reading it and replying, even after 3 years. While I don’t know the ultimate fate of the relationship of the particular girl who posted the question, I feel it is something a LOT of us are going through and it ought to be addressed, for the sake of many families or soon-to-be-families out there.
I am a young woman 21 years dating a guy my age who has a 2 year old daughter. He’s not even divorced from his wife; they’re still sorting out custody issues. She lives two states away, thank goodness.

Am I In An Abusive Relationship?
Are you afraid of his temper? Or the way he acts when he drinks? Or what he might do if you tried to break up with him? Abuse is not just a matter of someone having a bad day or getting into a bad mood sometimes.

Dear Wendy is a relationship advice blog. You can read about me here , peruse the archives here and read popular posts here. You can also follow along on Facebook and Instagram. She also loves Broadway musicals and reading. She and I share all of these interests I am a year-old fangirl at heart , so we are very close. He wants her to watch history and science shows with him, and go hiking, camping and backpacking.
But those are not her interests right now, although she does participate when he asks her to. The problem is that instead of at least tolerating her fangirling, my husband tends to disparage it, and roll his eyes. All of this has tended to push her and me, to some extent away from him. Yet, while lamenting that they are not closer, he simply refuses to engage with her on these subjects.
Both of them are alike in that they are argumentative, particularly with each other, and if they disagree with each other or even have a misunderstanding neither will let it go, such that we end up with ridiculous escalating fights. I see his point to some extent. Is there a middle ground?
Ask a Guy: My Boyfriend is Stressed and Pulling Away…
Sometimes this results in a loveless shell of a marriage, sometimes it does real physical harm to the wife the stigmatization of divorce means that a lot of women live in abusive situations rather than leave their abusers. The marriages, however, stay together. Well, she did, and he abused her, and she left him. A brave thing to do in a small town. Tracy Michelle Hargett Abusive marriages suck ass.
Dear Anabelle, Thank you for the post. I find it helpful. However, I have to say I sensed a bit of “Montreal/Quebec vs rest of Canada”, buried in between the lines of the text.
I feel like I’m losing my son. Dear Emuna, I was always very close to all my children but especially my middle son. He had some serious struggles and even rebellion during his adolescence and we spent a lot of time together. Although not all of it was pleasant to say the least! He recently got married and the relationship has changed dramatically — and not only in the ways it should. Every conversation is like pulling teeth.
I tried to hint to my son but he got angry and took her side. You can look at it like you lost a son or you can look at it like you gained a daughter. If you practice the former as you seem to be , you will probably end up losing your son; it will be a self-fulfilling prophecy. His wife and his new marriage is his first priority and he is correct in taking her side. It is unfortunate that you have put him in a position where he needs to choose but it is not too late to rectify the situation.

Dear Angie — thank you for visiting and sharing your resource. Randall Keller I see only women commenting. I have been alienated for one year from my sons. The few times we have seen each, we had a great time only to have it destroyed two days later. Does this happen more against men then women? A great many men deal with this. Mandy Walker Hi Randall — Thank you for commenting. Janet I am a 43 year old mother to my 11 year old daughter and my ex-husband and his wife are in the process of alienating my daughter from me.
My attorney has not been helpful but it is too late to find another one. Based on my reading, the reason for the alienating behavior is often a serious mental disorder and an inexperienced evaluator may not recognize this. Have you asked for a child advocate to be appointed?

Tweet You think it would be really fun to have sex with me. Because, I think you can tell from my posts, I’ll do anything. But maybe you can also tell from my posts that it’s a little bit weird. Because you know that I’ll say anything, too, but sometimes, I make you cringe.
(“Peer Pressure” by Hannah Nino via ) Just last week, a review of the anthology Unsavory Elements appeared in the Global Times, and had this to say about my contribution: Jocelyn Eikenburg gives insight into the seldom spoken of (or seen) relationships between foreign women and Chinese men in “Red Couplets.”.
My favorite texts to receive from guys are: Either way, you deserve better. He never responds to anything you ever send him. There is absolutely no interaction. Zero interaction means zero things are happening. That doesn’t mean you should send hateful or aggressive messages, because negativity is worse than zero. He regularly takes 24 hours or longer to reply. It’s okay to wait a couple of hours or so because we all have busy days or, if it was late and he went to bed, the next morning.
But if there’s no response, it might not mean he hates you, but you might not be a priority of any kind. He only texts you about business matters or school matters. His texts are colorless. There’s no joking, no flirting, nothing.
Older Women Dating Younger Men: Doomed from the Start or Happily Ever After in Cougarville?
In this post, I go over my experience: Halloween in Medellin is fun. I first wrote this post about my dating experience in Medellin back in April of Places frequented by tourists in Medellin are more saturated with foreigners than before. I am aware of the underworld of sex tourism and prostitution in Colombia and I know that there are many strip clubs and brothels in Medellin; however, strippers and pros are not the types of girls that I date, nor is it something I would like to promote; therefore, I will not be referring to that in this post.
I know, this is hardly revolutionary or unique advice, but I was recently asked about this issue by a young Catholic man who called my radio had been dating a devoutly Presbyterian girl, and her father didn’t like it one bit that the guy was Catholic.
What should I do? Here are a few things to consider: When a woman is upset about something, most women talk to their friends and lean on their support group. Guys, on the other hand, typically view themselves as weak and incapable if they voice their feelings or lean on other people for help or support. The way women handle difficult emotions is much more psychologically healthy and healing, but it is what it is. Next, make sure that you give him space the right way.
What does that mean? If you start offering help or support to him, a lot of guys will actually resent it. Playing therapist typically backfires for the reasons stated above. When he feels relief from you, it will be easier for him to work out his own issues. Finally, on that same note: On that same token, if he wants to talk about his stresses or struggles, just listen.
Feel free to ask questions, but seek to understand and not help solve. When a guy shares something with you, his main desire is for you to understand him and his experience.
