Re: Dumping a Fiance'

So why didn't he? Was he feeling too pressured to "get married" that it overcame this judgment he had made about himself?

And what about you? Did you understand that this was a risk with him? And if not --- was it something you

Re: Dumping a Fiance'

You know, SP, that's an amazing amount of self-awareness.

My ex said the something similar to me as we were getting divorced - that he should have realised that marriage was not for him - he was not willing or able to put in the work to stay [more]

Re: An Open Letter

I was told by a friend that it was supposed to stand for Nazarene - to show solidarity with the Christians being persecuted in Mosul.

I don't have a FB page, but I use Twitter for work, and I've seen it there as well.

Re: OT: text speak

You're right, I think it is all about context. In the context of these boards, or in work email (or actually any email), it should be almost verboten.

In a situation where brevity is of the essence (you're dashing off a one-or-two-word [more]

Re: Completely OT: trashcan on desk

Let me guess, you were born before 1980.

Not the person you were replying to, but I was born before 1980, as, I would presume to guess, were the majority of the regulars on this board.

Re: OT: Non-profit ethics

Thank you for all the advice and suggestions.

Metrochick is right - the two groups do have separate target markets. One has more money though, and there is the desire to tap into it, maybe peel off some of the more progressive [more]

OT: Non-profit ethics

I don't know if this is the correct board, but it is well-travelled, so I will risk it.

I do some work on occasion with a non-profit here in town. In one of the richer suburbs of Houston, there is another non-profit that concentrates on the [more]

Re: "Food Art" Stupidity, Insensitivity

When I used to travel in India, I saw the swastika EVERYWHERE. Growing up in Europe, I found it difficult to take - there was a visceral reaction every time I saw the symbol - on the backs of vehicles, painted on walls, even [more]

Collection on credit report

I didn't want to hijack the earlier thread, so I'm starting one of my own.

How long does a collection take to fall off a report? I have one on my credit report from 3 years ago. It is a disputed bill with AT&T. I never had that phone [more]

Re: FGM study

There is a difference.

Like you, I have only been around circumcised men, and I don't know of a single one who has lifelong complications from the procedure.

However, FGM results, pretty much always, in problems and pain during sex [more]

Re: Millennial crybabies in the workplace

Oh god, yes! There's such need to be told constantly how they are doing. I mean, every freaking day.
