(Not that she ever suggested any such thing, but the idea that it should be spread because of safety is so prevalent and so wrongheaded that I feel the need to say something.)
8775 This is MY job, MY space. 8776 No, it is not. You own neither the company, your job, nor the workplace. She has as much a right to work there as you do.
Can you suggest ways that would help deepen our connection or a communication style that would open him up and act the way he did when we first got together-assertive, attentive, or how to get into his emotional mind??
True, I agree to you Lisa. The responder was too mean and just answered the issue from a single perspective. Emily has every right to not settle with ex girlfriends picture and secrecy if she is not comfortable with them.
Exactly. OP, know it made you feel really weird and awkward, and believe me, I can understand why it was weird and awkward, which is why it felt that way. But when the ex introduced herself to you in the cafeteria, that was actually a good thing. I mean, if you think about it a little more, I think you can see that once she started working there, she didn 8767 t really have another mature, workable option. What was she supposed to do? Hide? Hope you didn 8767 t recognize her?
There 8767 s kind of a test for this that 8767 s also the way to cope with this. When your friend tells you another story about Darth (or makes excuses for crappy behavior), answer like a therapist would: Don 8767 t talk much, and when you do, ask only questions.
Another thing about not sharing germs
My boyfriend and I have an agreement that whenever one of us is sick, the other person sleeps on the futon. It 8767 s helped us avoid sharing colds many, many times. Also, we both sleep better.
I guess I just give people the benefit of the doubt at all times. It 8767 s not easy to live life this way. I have zero enemies, great friends and can honestly say that I 8767 m very happy.
LW – look at the loaded language you use in your letter. You’ve made his ex the bad guy in everything and now she’s popped up and seems normal instead of being happy about it your first instinct is to want to mark your territory against her.
It 8767 s not called Anger it 8767 s called inappropriate behavior and much lack of respect and concern for his new gf. Her feelings should come first! What if the gf was doing the same thing??? Would he be ok with that? If so, then maybe he needs to find a girl that 8767 s more into a 8775 swinging 8776 type life style. It 8767 s just stupid to stay friends with an ex if you 8767 re trying to build a new one HAVE SOME RESPECT! -V
