Re: Problem at work

I'm not completely clear about what she's doing, but can't you just ignore whether she is online or offline? Unless you need her to answer a question, just do your own work and ignore her.

Re: Fatherhood Dilemma

I think you have a number of options, all of which have upsides and downsides. To start with the more obvious one of finding a younger partner: the downside is, to be safe, she would have to be about 20 years younger than yourself. That's a big gap, and it will feel a big gap. She'll be the same age...

Re: Still going on

I agree - I would cut ties and stop replying. This is a man who wasn't interested in a serious relationship with you before, and who is now risking your marriage, and using you, to feel better about his own problems. This is not innocent, and I imagine neither of your spouses would be OK with it if ...

Re: Tough Spot

To be honest I think I wouldn't if you can help it - if by any chance you have got the wrong end of the stick and they actually weren't planning to get rid of you, it would tend to erode your credibility in the role I think. How are things now?

Re: Tough Spot

Hi Pete Gosh that sounds really horrible. I don't know much about employment, so I mentioned your situation to someone I know who works in HR. This is what he said: Ah yes I see a key piece of information there about the just under two years service. The point at which they can get rid of him withou...

Re: Social media boundaries

It would be useful to have a reply from a male, since they may see these things differently, but here's how I see it. (For context, I'm a 46-year-old straight female in a long term relationship). I do see this sort of thing as mild infidelity - he's showing a clear sexual interest in other women. Th...

Re: When is it right?

I think it's fine to be talking to two women at the same time - why shouldn't you? I think it's even fine to be dating two women at the same time, provided that they know you are seeing someone else. I would say that's fairly normal. Most people though would be unhappy about sleeping with someone wh...

Re: Advice

To be honest it's difficult to know what was going on for her and what she was thinking. The fact that she didn't want to discuss moving in together is significant; if it had been something she was thinking about, expecting, and looking forward to then I don't think she would have responded like tha...

Re: What should I do?

That does make sense then. I think myself it would be better to completely end your financial connection with the first lady, for everyone's sake really. Could you stop the payments but with plenty of notice (six months, maybe even nine months) so that she has time to make other arrangements? That w...

Re: What should I do?

Well a couple of questions spring to mind. You refer to the first lady as a friend - does that mean you never had any kind of sexual/romantic relationship with her? If you did , then that makes her an ex rather than a friend. In that case, I can see why a current partner would not be happy about a c...

I'm so glad to hear it's finally over and you can start to re-build your life and have a good time now, Glasgowgirl. One good thing that will come from all this suffering is that you'll be stronger in your own self-confidence and opinions now and you'll always spot the signs if someone tries to do t...

I really do believe we are soulmates I'll say to you something that someone on this site once said to me when I was in a very similar situation and that I found helpful - soulmates goes both ways . Your soulmate wouldn't dump you out of the blue when you seemed to be getting on so well. Your soulma...
