• Why are some people on Yahoo! Answers so nasty and judgmental?

    Seems like whenever I ask an opinion question I end up getting several really nasty and judgmental answers, which really ticks me off. Then I look at their profile and realize that they are really just teenagers with nothing else to do besides troll Y!A.

He's never been married or had children. Recently we reconnected after being out of touch for four years and he asked me out on a date. One thing lead to another and we ended up sleeping together. Since then we have spent time at his house and mine, often without any physical intimacy. I enjoy his company and he enjoys mine, but when we talk on the phone it's just "talk to you later" or "see ya" at the end. I know he cares about me and I care about him, but is it just friends with benefits or are we considered to be dating? Just curious for the opinions of others.

  • Do you think it's wrong to "love the one you're with" if you can't be with the one you love?

    There's an old 70's song with a line that goes, "If you can't be with the one you love, then love the one you're with." Do you agree with this? BTW I am just curious of other's opinions.

  • Cheater or not? He accused me of wanting to sleep with every male boss I ever had?

    My soon to be ex-husband used to accuse me of wanting to sleep with every male boss I ever have. When I got a new job, he would ask me if my boss was a man or a woman. If I said man, he would ask, "Are you attracted to him? Do you want to sleep with him?" I have never wanted to sleep with any of my bosses and think it is both... show more

If I said man, he would ask, "Are you attracted to him? Do you want to sleep with him?" I have never wanted to sleep with any of my bosses and think it is both unprofessional and unethical to even consider doing that. If I said no he would persist and say, "Well are any of your co-workers male? Are you attracted to them?" I would say yes but no I am not attracted to them. This went on for 4 years. Do you think it was because he was sleeping around and trying to divert his guilt to me? Just looking for opinions. BTW I am already separated and in the process of divorce. He is 38 and I am 42, so we aren't kids either.

My doctor can't see me until Wednesday. I had this happen to me once when I was in my 30's before I had my daughter. The doc prescribed birth control pills which stopped it. I was wondering if there were any non-hormonal ways to stop this? I don't feel anemic but I don't get good sleep anymore. Could this be a sign of periomenupause?

Domestic Relations told him to pay up or they would extradite him back to Pennsylvania (where her and I live) and put him in jail. He's partially disabled due to a car accident a year ago so he asked me if I would drop the support order. I told him I would modify it, but then I got to thinking that he hasn't supported her in nearly a year and the monthly payment is so low, so let him pay for his mistakes. Am I being heartless? BTW I am a single mom who works 40+ hours a week so that I can take care of my child. He doesn't see her except once a year.

I thought if he ever really loved me he would at least try to contact me, despite what I said. Instead he withdrew most of his money out (thinking I would try to steal it), changed the locks, returned the wills to the lawyer, contacted a lawyer, and will not send me my paycheck. Does this prove what I thought for the last year that he really didn't love me and didn't trust me? I think so - just looking for opinions, both male and female. If you're going to give me a mean or flip answer, don't bother replying.

Current husband takes most of my money that I earn for bills and for his own purchases. I am left with $200 per month which has to cover gas in the car, food, and any other incidentals. Yet he goes golfing every week and plays in a pool tournament each week. I am often home alone each night and he doesn't like me contacting my family. We never spend any holidays with my family, and he treats me like I should be honored that he chose to marry me! I am 42 years old and now he wants me to have a baby so he can show how "manly" he is that he had a child. I almost died having my daughter and I was 34 when I had her. Add to this that I have high blood pressure and am prone to ovarian cysts yet he is insistent that I have his kid. Do you think I am wrong for thinking of leaving and divorcing him?

  • What is a good beginner guitar for an 8 year old girl?

    My 8 year old daughter wants to learn how to play guitar. I bought her a kids guitar last year but it's so cheap that the strings don't stay tuned and the fret board is loose. I'd like to get her an acoustic guitar but one that's smaller so she can learn to play it well. I want to spend under $200 if possible.

  • I have a weird allergy to oranges. Does anyone else have this?

    If I eat so much as a single orange section, my whole mouth tingles and stings within a few seconds. It starts on the roof of my mouth and then spread to the rest of my mouth. This has happened to me since I was a child. Weird thing is I am not allergic to other citrus fruits such as lemons, limes or grapefruit.
