    We have been living together

    for the past 3 years. I work and go to school. He doesn't have a job, doesn't go to school, and smokes pot every day. It's a hassle to get him to help me around the house. But after 7 years.... I have overlooked his misgivings. Until recently. He isn't there for me financially...

    Lost Love

    I broke up with my boyfriend two months ago. We were together for 1 year. I only have myself to blame. I knew our relationship wouldn’t work when we first started dating. We lived so far away from each other and we were so immature. It was too serious and we were too young. If...

    In Hindsight ...

    Never, ever commit to marrying a girl until you first go through a crisis with her. If she rallies to your side and sticks by you no matter what, she's a keeper. If, instead, she turns on you and abandons you let her go. You've just avoided making the biggest mistake of your life...

    because it was instigated by his parents who met me for the first time and passed judgement just based on seeing me for two days): they said I looked like I was the "popular" kind and looked like a flirt and thus not loyal and they said I didn't care for him as much as he did...
