Sadly, we still live together. Divorce is expensive. I wanted to give her time to see if she got disability (she didn’t) and now she has started working and we are finishing our lease.

I took a big step and invited someone I am dating to an event with friends. First time to introduce anyone to my friends since my marriage ended. Also had him to my house overnight.

I also have a strong preference for reddit. Parts of do, rightly so, have a bad rap. It’s a tool. It is what you make of it. I have been part of good reddit communities with awesome moderation. It's a better tool than kinja to be honest.

I agree. Rationally, I get it. If anything, she should have been happy to have a fresh start in a new job. Clearly, this was coming. My initial response was guilt.

I tried very hard to have empathy - even when she was horrible. I doubt it helped, but I have no regrets about approaching it with compassion rather than anger. That’s often the best we can do at work. Hopefully your coworker has outside friends and family that are helping.

She is the worst person I’ve ever worked with. I have a date with my favorite sweetie tonight. Other than that, I think I will actually just rest Read more

Had a bit of a boozy afternoon. Now doing laundry and getting ready for a trip. Having a long weekend away with someone I've been dating for 5 months (yikes! hard to believe) and I super nervous. Not sure why. Need the long weekend though.

It really almost always comes down to your freq. flyer status. If you want an upgrade, but one. Otherwise, it is pretty unlikely with some elite status or miles to cash in.

Been feeling weird all week. The move from married to separated and dating combined with me really doing poorly at work, it’s making me a feel a little strange about my identity. The good news is that dating is fun and I’ve had several good interviews. I expect to find a new role soon, but this week I Read more
