You could be right. Very similar preoccupations/obsessions/recurrent and usually irrelevant comments.

I agree and this should serve as a wakeup call to those stupid enough to be contemplating shacking up with someone else

She insisted on staying home!". These situations exist because both parties go along with it - either there was never any real disagreement at the time about one party staying home (it's only in hindsight that the story becomes "she refused to work!") or the husband went along with the situation rather than rock the boat, in which case he created the problem for himself.

The Halle Berry comment what was piqued my suspicion.
The continuous misogynist remarks ... tiring.
All we are missing are the cartoons.

Looking back a previous posts (May of this year)

I have a question relating to this thread, and hope some of you can help with your personal opinion as to how to proceed.

I have been divorced now for 4yrs, and been dating here and there, mostly short term due me having criteria and non-compromise factors. I have a child who spends time with both parents on a week on / week off schedule.

I met a lady recently with 2 kids who has been separated for 1yr, but she is the highest earner, and her ex got the daycare nanny pregnant and already moved in with her. However, their kids spend time between both homes, and there is no formal schedule in place and no support of any kind being paid.

Initially, my gut told me the situation seems complicated, and I should avoid getting involved. However, there was an initial attraction and we embarked on this 'lets see what happens' dating. She has no plans to sort out the divorce, and it seems to me that she is not over the situation yet, and I find the arrangement (ex is able to come to her place when he wants) she has odd, especially if am going to be hanging out there.

Anyway, I have ended the relationship as I don't think it's fair on me or her, and she probably needs time to be mentally ready to have someone new in her life.

Your thoughts on dating people in the separation phase, establishing friends with benefits, and sticking to deal breakers?????

Sound familiar?
