  • Family doesn’t want me to date him because of his job?

    I’m 24 years old (female), and I come from a middle eastern family. Started recently talking to a guy, and we’ve only been on one date so far, but the chemistry was great. Way too early to tell how it’s going to pan out obviously. Anyways, I was considering going out on a second date with him....but my family... show more
    I’m 24 years old (female), and I come from a middle eastern family. Started recently talking to a guy, and we’ve only been on one date so far, but the chemistry was great. Way too early to tell how it’s going to pan out obviously. Anyways, I was considering going out on a second date with him....but my family found out what he does for a living, and now they are all against me going on any further dates with him because they found out he’s a construction manager. P.s don’t ask me how I know this, but apparently he’s making almost 200k doing what he does. He’s redicolously career oriented. Anywaysss, none of this matters to my family....nor his drive/ambitions or his salary doing what he does. They’re telling me that they would be extremely ashamed to tell our family what he does as a career. And also telling me that I would potentially be setting up a terrible example for my future children, potentially marrying someone who doesn’t even have a bachelors degree. Anyways, all in all, I’m getting MAJOR sh*tfor even considering going out on another date with him. Keep in mind that I come from a family of doctors/engineers/lawyers. The money or drive doesn’t matter to them- they think the title of his career is extremely shameful to potentially bring up to all of our family & relatives in the future. My family has usually given me so much freedom, but for once, I feel like I’m literally trapped & living in a cage. How would you guys have handled the situation?

  • Should I tell my wife that I do not want to go to her brother's home for Thanksgiving?

    Best answer: I know this type of person - and you will never change them. You can only change yourself. And honestly, the problem here is you. You have a low self esteem because of the short term set back. And it's understandable. You have 2 choices here - run from your BIL or face it head on. You have nothing to... show more
    Best answer: I know this type of person - and you will never change them.

    You can only change yourself. And honestly, the problem here is you. You have a low self esteem because of the short term set back. And it's understandable.

    You have 2 choices here - run from your BIL or face it head on. You have nothing to apologize or explain. You are taking care of your family - and in the long run, you, your wife, your kids and your family will be much stronger for it.

    Years ago, my wife and I had similar financial problems. We circled the wagons and made some very tough decisions that were embarrassing for us with our family, friends and neighbors.

    But instead of hiding, we moved forward, with our head up high. And when someone made condescending comments, our reply was, "thank you for your opinion. I hope that when the time comes, and it will, you are able to handle the situation better then you believed we did".

    I promise you, if you feel this way about the BIL, most of the others in the family feel the same way. And when he starts on his condescending tangent, everyone (or most) will see him for what he is, a pompous as*

    PS If you don't want to go, just ask your wife to say you are sick. But you shouldn't keep them from going.

    I am a bisexual male, 28 yrs old, only child in the family, to be honest, although I am bisexual, but the rarely want to have anything to do with girls. I am more attracted to male qualities( Looks, personalities.) My parents knows I am bi, so they are saying that I should have a kid, because I am the only child, and I need to reproduce to continue the family's DNA, otherwise it'll ends in my hand. I think the my main points are (1) I don't like crying stuff (2) I need my personal space (3) I want to live my life however i want without getting stuck with a kid. (4) I am more happy with guys than i'm with girls. My parents main points are (1) I am bi, it's not like i'm gay, so why not choose to live a "normal" life. (2) I am the only child, i need to reproduce to continue the family's DNA. (3) They think I'll be happier in life with a girl because guys are all promiscuous they all cheat. (4) I'll have my kid/kids take care after me when i'm old. I never thought about family's DNA and all that crap until they talked to me about it. Now I don't know what to do? Be selfish and make myself happy not have a kid or Be normal, have a kid but be miserable.

  • Is it okay for boys to have feminine qualities?

    Best answer: All people -- male AND female -- have "feminine" and "masculine" qualities. Those are labels created by society. What one society considers to be "masculine", another society may not. Whether or not it is "okay" is a judgment.

    So one day I was crying because I was in a lot of pain with my wisdom teeth she offered to pay for the surgery because I couldn’t afford it really. After I paid £300 for x rays and consultations the date was booked. I found out my my stole some things from my room and we argued and she then said she won’t pay for my surgery. The date is already booked and now I’m going to have to pay it but I can’t really afford it. Just so people know I pay full priced rent I don’t live off anyone I’ve never received or asked for any financial help before. I’m upset also because my brother gets himself in debt and crashes cars and my mum always pays and helps him but this is something I actually need and I can’t get any help.

    I am 23. College degree good job gonna try and get some land next year and build a small house to start. I’ve worked in child care/education (ages 2-18) in one way or another since I was 14 and still am. I am excited to start my life and I feel ready but other people especially older women in their 50s/60s laugh and scoff if I mention wanting to have a child soon. I don’t know what I can do to be any more ready at this point. I am not a teenager and I am better established than many people I know. I don’t go out with friends and am good at sticking to my budget. What more do I need to do to start my life?

  • How can I get over my father losing his temper with me 5 years ago?

    I was 16 when this happened. My dad used to drop me off in high school. I had to be at school before 7:35am. My dad had to be at work at 8:00am. My high school and his job was quite a distance. We usually left the house around 6:50am-7:00am. One day, we were getting ready to leave. My dad tells me ... show more
    I was 16 when this happened. My dad used to drop me off in high school. I had to be at school before 7:35am. My dad had to be at work at 8:00am. My high school and his job was quite a distance. We usually left the house around 6:50am-7:00am. One day, we were getting ready to leave. My dad tells me "Let's go I'm ready" and gets in his car. I was still in the house getting ready. It was around 6:55am so I thought we still had a few minutes. I was getting ready to leave the house, but I just wanted to make sure I had everything I needed before I left. Then all of a sudden, my dad walks in the house and yells at the top of his lungs, "LET'S GO!!!!!". That really startled me. So I got in the car and we left. On our way to my dad dropping me off at school he was yelling at me and angry with me during the entire car ride. He told me "SOMETIMES AFTER I DROP YOU OFF I'M LATE FOR WORK!!! AND I MAKE STOPS!!" I then calmly told him "I assumed that after you drop me off you just go straight to work because you only have so much time to get to work on time." He then yells at me while slamming his hand on the steering wheel and says, "THAT'S NONE OF YOUR ******* BUSINESS!!! IT'S NONE OF YOUR ******* BUSINESS WHAT I DO AFTER I DROP YOU OFF!!!". I started crying during this car ride. I didn't mean to make my father upset. He wanted me to apologize to him when I felt like he did me wrong. I never apologized and neither did he. This incident made me think differently of him.

  • My son talks like an old person?

    Best answer: I have a nine year-old like this who calls himself "an old soul". It's hardly the worst thing a kid can indulge in.
