We have a system that if a purchase comes from our non-joint checking accounts, the other person doesn't question it. It keeps us from fighting about things we want to buy for "fun". DH bought his scissors lift from his money and I bought the elliptical from mine. I showed him the elliptical and he actually said it's really nice and it's probably good I bought a good one. It's going to last a long time and I'll definitely get my use out of it. I think it's just hard for DH because he grew up poor so he has a hard time spending money and thinks I should too.

I wish I weren't so bad at interacting with people. I really just do not care much about forming friendships or anything....I don't think I ever did, really. I was always a bookish, nerdy kid who preferred books to people. I just hate that so many extroverts in my life like to make me feel shitty about this.

In response to a confession. I know this isn't the point of your post, but why did you put Voltaren on it? I ask because I just bought a tube yesterday to try on my knees.. I thought it was for arthritis?

What would you do if you found out your s/o lied to you about the past? He's embarrassed by things he did, but he has always said we can't build a relationship on lies. He doesn't know I know about it, but I do. I confronted him and he lied. Over and over.

In response to a confession. This was mine. Here we go again. He's in the hospital getting checked out for a possible stroke and I'm worried about how to make it seem like I care.

BF came home sick. He asked me to run some errands.(No problem) There is construction. So my drive there and back took 1.5 hours. I stopped and talked to my daughter for 1/2 hour or so and dropped off some lysol to my mom. While at my mom's he pulled up acting like a asshole. Throwing shit, yelling that I have been out running the streets all night, sped off. I was gone for exact 2 hours at that point the sun was shining bright. I apologized to my mom and drove home. When he runs these errands it takes him 4-5 hours. I'm so pissed! I'm not cheating (never have) so this is bullshit. I can't talk to my daughter or mother now? He told me I'm nicer to strangers at work than I am to him. Strangers dont flip out on me over nothing! I'm almost always nice unless I'm getting screamed at over bullshit. I think he's got a guilty conscience! He can fuck off. I'm looking at apartments.

I'm so, so, so loving the bit of a break I'm getting from DH right now. He's so loud (just in general) and I'm very much loving my peace and quiet right now. I will definitely start missing him soon, but for now it's a nice little break from his stomping, loud voice, and him playing the TV super loud so he can hear. I wonder if all people who are starting to lose their hearing are so loud? It can't be too uncommon.

I just found out my dad got engaged to the woman he just met in June. I don't know how to feel about it. I haven't met her yet. They only dated long-distance and I feel like they barely know each other. I had a long chat about it with my sister and we're more concerned for my dad that she may try to take advantage of him or something. I get that maybe he just cannot be alone in life and needs a partner, but I also feel like he is WAY jumping the gun. The kicker is that he's planning their wedding for about the same time of the 1 year anniversary of my mom's death. It just feels...rushed to me. I feel slightly disrespected that he didn't feel the need to introduce her to me or my siblings until after he got engaged to her.

DH hates his job. Fine, I get it. Says he's going to look for a new one. Great, find a new one. He sends off maybe one resume a month and that's in a good month. If they ask you to fill out information in addition to submitting a resume, he won't do it because it's a hassle. Same if they want a cover letter; it's a hassle. If you want a new f-in job, then quit being so GD lazy. Either that, or STFU about your current one. He's been bitching about his job for 7 years now but has done diddly squat to do anything about it because "it's too much work." Oh, he did spent hundreds of dollars for someone to write his resume, that he has only sent out a handful of times in the last year. Seriously may lose my shit if he complains about his job one more time.

Overspending H has gotten us into a bad position. His credit cards are still sky high because he won't stop charging (he tries to say it's because of interest charges), and he has NO savings. Now he's hurt his back and isn't able to work for a couple weeks. DS and I took money out of OUR personal checking accounts as well as our joint savings (which is for college costs!) to cover the bills H can't pay this month. (I work and pay several bills as well as all groceries, toiletries, household goods and whatever the pets need. DS pays for his phone bill, gas, clothes, textbooks and other food.) I'm so angry.
