You've been in a relationship for a few months and it's going ok. Not super, but fine. Which of these things would be factors in ending the relationship? Anything you don't check, it's assumed that you could overlook that fault and try and work through it
December 4th, 2013
oh jeez....tqc....until recently, I've been single for the better part of 3 years (separated from ex husband in June 2010, divorced in November 2011).
I've had 3 other relationships not including my current one since my exhusband and I split. the 3 previous relationships ended around the 1 month point (found out 2 were cheating...the 3rd wasnt kid friendly like he said he was)
anyway, I've recently hit the one month mark with my new guy. I honestly don't know how I got so lucky. It seems like he's better for me than anyone else has been.
ok....with that random back story....I think that I could love this guy. but how soon is too soon to let him know? I don't want to jinx it or scare him off. (he's in the process of a long, messy divorce from his ex. I'm not the rebound from that relationship. he's dated 4 or 5 women since he and his ex split a long time ago)
for those of you in relationships, how long did it take before you fell in love? how long did you wait before telling your SO?
I'm all awkward with this stuff. :( the ex husband and I were together from the time I was 15 until right before I turned 26. I'm 29 now. (boyfriend is 32...not so relevant, I know.)
dk/dc how's the weather? Southern Illinois is nice right now...I have my bedroom window open. they're calling for a winter storm tomorrow into Friday. ugh...damn weather!

For those who have, what triggers it in you? Will you share some of the videos or music that gives you those wonderful brain orgasms? Mine below.
Do you buy the same sort of food for food drives that you buy for yourself? Why/why not?
When buying a gift for a child, does your social/gender opinions ever enter the picture? Meaning, if you don't support Barbie and the message she gives girls would you buy one for a child?
When you purchase a doll do you automatically buy a white baby doll/Barbie? Do you automatically buy a black one? Why/why not?
Would you buy a little boy a doll?
How about buying a truck for a little girl?
When purchasing for a toy drive, would you rather purchase a large gift for one child or buy a smaller, less expensive gift for a half dozen children?
All of these questions prompted by me at Target not knowing what the hell I'm doing. Every toy I picked up seemed loaded with social consequences. And then I just felt rotten. :(
Have you bought a pet from a breeder rather than adopting? Can you help me understand why you would choose that route? I sincerely want to know...
Any suggestions on how I can help him with this? If someone else is vacuuming then I sit with him, pet him, and talk to him, but it only seems to help a little bit.
Will he ever get over this? We've only had him eight months.
What are some things your pets are scared of?
I've never been in an Elks Club before, and I had no idea they served dinner. All I could picture was Fred Flintstone and a bunch of grown men wearing silly Buffalo hats. Or maybe that was Ralph Kramden. I dunno.
What can I expect?
What are some other good, quick-read books that I can use to cleanse my palate after fighting through A Dance with Dragons (the 5th Game of Thrones book)? I've read the Hunger Games trilogy and loved it. YA or not, doesn't matter, I just want something fast paced and interesting.
I have some cellophane gift bags so I was thinking of filling one each - any ideas for what to put in?
They are boys, aged 3 and 9. I'd like the bags to be similar because they might compare, but the age difference might make it tricky. They like playing outside, reading/being read to (but don't speak English very well) and apart from that I don't know anything helpful for present buying. I will skype them again before I go but I'd like to buy things before then.
My ideas so far have been bubbles, bouncy balls, little colouring books, those giant balloon punch bags. Anyone know where I might be able to get just two of each of those online? Any "older" ideas for the 9-year old?
The only ones I can think of are Roseanne, Everybody Hates Chris, and Malcolm in the Middle. I feel like a lot of shows might talk about being broke or struggling, but then they are still very obviously well off or comfortable.
So my question is..... what is the coldest weather you have ever experienced in your life? How about the hottest? :-) What kind of weather do you love best?
