OP who knows who my "one" is, and has no desire to be with anyone else. Through out my life, I've dated many guys. Quite a few were for years, was engaged twice but I broke them off because it didn't feel right,I even had a child and married the father. I loved my xH, but I wasn't in love with him. After my marriage ended, I dated. Then one day, I took a chance on going on a date with a guy who had no picture on his dating profile. Something told me to give it a try. From the day we met in person, we both knew this was something amazing. He never introduced any woman to his family, ever. Within 2 weeks, I met his whole family. We spent a year and a half knowing we were each others "one". Bad things are keeping us apart right now,it is possible some day we can be together again. I know I would be able to love again...but there is a difference in loving someone, and knowing who your "one" is. My parents and my uncle didn't lead sad lives,they were all quite happy. Just because we're not with someone, doesn't mean we're not happy. I'm leading a happy life in other aspects. No one should depend on being with someone else in order to be happy. Occasionally I am able to communicate with my "one", but we're not emotionally dependent on each other.

Since when was a tax return supposed to pay for anything? Don't count on it, folks. That's not the general idea of paying taxes.

OP CL hug poster here. After two weeks, still emailing the guy daily and sometimes several times a day. It's platonic and much better that way because he's 42 and lives with roommate(s).He seems to do well in the IT biz and even has his own driver (unless he meant taxi driver...) I admit that I'm sorta judging his situation when I'm in the same situation. I'm 30 and still live with roommates, but can't see myself like this 10 years from now.

Trader Joe's continually impresses me with their new products. I bought Matcha Green Tea Latte mix and had that with some steaming almond milk. Heavenly! I splurged and bought their Facial Serum with Antioxidants (9.99) and I must say after one application my skin is noticeably softer.

My grandparents were terrible parents and lame at best grandparents. My parents were terrible parents and continue to uphold the family tradition of being lame grandparents. I hate that I can't offer a good family to my children. We're good parents, but there's no sense of unity or family beyond our front door and I can't fix that. Even my brothers are lame uncles and they have no children so the family is shriveling up and dying. Since we couldn't be parents until we got older, I expect to be dead before we can be grandparents. My poor kids. I hope they marry into big, loving families so they can see what that kind of love feels like.

One year my husband and I were treated to a night in a fancy hotel downtown. When we pulled up to valet, the bellhop went to our trunk to get out our luggage. I made way back there so I could grab my jacket. As I grabbed it bellhop was pulling out my suitcase and when he started to pull out if trunk, the ripped part of my suitcase at the zipper and 2 pair of my lacey underwears fell out!! Of all damn things those fall out!! I was so embarassed but so damn glad I didn't have my granny period underwears!! I picked them up and stuffed them into luggage amd bellhop says to me "don't worry, shit happens and I've seen worse." Now I tell people to buy hard case luggage and avoid the soft material.

My 17 yo SIL, her cousin, and her roommate from school are watching my 4yo while dh and i go on a date this afternoon/night. They are asking permission to take ds to a local beach and have promised to keep me updated and have him back before dark. I really dont know how i feel about this. Every motherly nerve in my body is screaming hell no, but the logical part of me is saying that theyre responsible, and i cant keep him safe forever, nor can i keep him locked up in my sight forever either..... So anyone have any input while i mull this over?

Some times I like to browse dating sites to see what's out there, but I never contact anyone. I feel that since I found the one who made me feel whole, I have no need to find someone else. Him and I can never be together again due to something terrible happening to us. I don't think it would be fair to other guys because they can't compete. My parents love each other, but they couldn't be together...when they broke up before I was born, they never saw anyone else. My uncle met a woman when he was in his 20's, fell in love and planned to marry her. He never talked about what happened, but for some reason, they couldn't be together. He died in his mid 70's, was never with anyone else, never had kids. I come from a gene pool that believes once you found 'the one', then your heart is complete, even if things happen and you can't be with that person. I'm content knowing that my 'one' still loves me and always will. I think a lot of people who spent most of their life alone, and die alone, were people who knew who their 'one' was, and didn't feel they needed to look for another. Some people don't need to have someone physically in their lives to feel complete.

I just made pancakes for the first time ever. DH always makes them, but he is out of town. I'm 34. They were pretty easy-but I'm not telling him!

I suppose if we are going to discuss luggage costs for the forseeable future, ill join in!! I can honestly say that I'm a grown woman and have never bought a single piece of luggage. I have also never bought a purse. I inherited a couple of suitcases, and hubs has a few. He bought me my first and only purse as well.
