    [–] Have you ever rekindled a relationship after ghosting someone? Why did you ghost and how did things work out? siroonig 2 points ago in AskWomen

    My husband and I met online back when we were 16/17. We lost touch but were friends still on yahoo messenger. He always messaged me there saying hi but I ignored him. I couldn’t remember exactly who he was or where I had met him. It had been a few years since we initially met. One day I decided to message him back and we became really good friends. Then decided to meet in person and the rest is history.

    [–] My husband is stealing from me siroonig 1 points ago in Advice

    I completely understand where you’re coming from. My husband has done this before and sometimes still does it. I had a rainy day fund stashed in our closet. He kept taking from it and I kept adding to it not realizing that he was taking from it. Eventually I caught on and stopped hiding it in our closet. I instead changed locations and he still doesn’t know about it. Additionally we have separate accounts and we split the household bills. He takes a few and I take a few then we split the rent. What he has left over is his to do whatever he pleases to do and whatever I have leftover is mine to whatever I please.

    The matter of the fact is that your husband is acting very immature. You guys need to have a serious talk about financing and finding a solution that works. My husband and I had a serious talk and the above way of us handling our finances was our solution. It works for us. You guys need to find what works for you guys.

    Best of luck.

    [–] The way I (21f) met my boyfriend (20m) is a bit cringy. How do i tell people when they ask siroonig 1 points ago in relationship_advice

    I understand where you’re coming from. Not many people know how I met my husband. We met online when it wasn’t the norm, when there was a lot of talk and fear about meeting weirdos on the internet. I just tell people we met online and leave it at that. I don’t think you need to give the specifics of what led up to meeting online. That’s something you can keep between the two of you.

    [–] Do you ever find yourself lying in bed unable to fall asleep because there are too many things on your mind? If so, what is it that makes you ponder? siroonig 1 points ago in AskWomen

    I have moved 2,000 miles away from home and I constantly agonize over missing my parents and not being there to continue to make memories with them as they grow old. The guilt of moving out and doing things for myself has kept me up every night since I moved out 5 years ago.

    [–] What's your opinion on going out braless? siroonig 1 points ago in AskWomen

    I wear a bra during the day while at work or social functions. But if I’m running errands and I wear loose enough clothing I can just wear a bralette to contain my girls and be just fine. I prefer it that way. My girls prefer to be free I just don’t wanna like an eye out lol

    [–] I haven't shaved for a year and this is how I feel siroonig 3 points ago in TheGirlSurvivalGuide

    I wax my underarms religiously because I sweat moderately and it helps keep my B.O in check. But I rarely shave my legs and keep my nether regions neatly trimmed. I used to feel obligated to be a hairless cat but not anymore. If you won’t sleep with me because I’m not hairless then I don’t wanna sleep with you either. My husband accepts my choices and it doesn’t bother him. Sure he’d like me to shave a bit more but he wouldn’t demand it or expect it.

    [–] For sexual assault survivors, did you have trouble calling it rape due to the circumstances (i.e. he claimed you consented but you don't remember)? How did you get over that, or did you? siroonig 1 points ago in AskWomen

    I was in a sexually abusive relationship and it’s even hard for me to say that simply because it wasn’t like that for majority of our relationship. The sexual problems began taking over our relationship with him becoming more and more mean towards me. He often did rape me or take advantage of me. See even now, typing this I’m having difficulty saying what it actually was. I guess I’ll never see myself as a victim or a survivor. I just was in a terrible situation that I thankfully got the strength to leave.

    [–] What is something nice going on in your life right now? siroonig 3 points ago in AskReddit

    I’m finally in a position where I’m not worried about affording my bills. I don’t have to religiously check my bank account to make sure I can afford groceries or afford to put some gas in my car.

    [–] Me [26F] trying to be okay with boyfriend's [32M] relationship with his best friend [26F] siroonig 1 points ago in relationships

    I have a male best friend who is married. My best friend and I dated way back when but quickly realized that we are much better off as friends. Been best friends now close to ten years. His wife knows about me and knows about our prior status. My husband knows about my best friend and our prior status. We are always open about our plans and it has not caused one single issue in our respective marriages. If there is no funny business happening behind the scenes then there should be no reason to keep everything hush hush. You’re in the right to feel like something more is happening behind the scenes. And it’s not okay behavior to take your best friend to events and disregard your significant other.

    [–] Ladies, how do you handle those friends that are always down on themselves and always talk about how terrible everything is for them? siroonig 2 points ago in AskWomen

    Currently going through this with a long time friend of mine. Everything is dark and gloomy in her world. She never attempts to make her situation better. It’s becoming so taxing on me to listen to the same stories over and over again when she isn’t doing anything to help herself. My advice? There isn’t much more to do then to just listen to the same stories and slowly fade out. There’s only so much you can handle before it becomes a stressor for you too.

    [–] How can you ever enjoy physical intimacy after being sexually assaulted? siroonig 1 points ago in AskWomen

    It takes a very long time. There’s still times where my ptsd is triggered and all physical intimacy comes to a halt. My husband is a champ at understating and recognizing that my ptsd is kick in. Therapy is an amazing resource to help cope and relearn how to be physically intimate.

    [–] [MN] A girl is planning to claim I am the father of her baby when we never had sex siroonig 9 points ago in legaladvice

    Please contact your social worker or case worker. This needs to get documented and you need to be placed in another home. A safer home. If threats continue and you’re fearing for your safety, call the police.

    Above all else do not sign one single sheet of paper with these people. You don’t owe them anything. Continue to deny any sexual involvement with this person. If she claims you’re the baby’s father, a paternity test will determine who is the child’s father if you deny it is yours. The courts in MN want a baby to have two parents and they will do testing to make sure there are two parents at least accounted for.

    [–] Married couples, what is the unspoken rules of a successful marriage? siroonig 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Our unspoken rule that makes our marriage work is “do what you have to do, just let me know”. This means if he wants to go to a baseball game with his buddies, go right on ahead, just text me and let me know. Or if I want a spa day, all I gotta do is text him that l will be home soon. We aren’t prisoners. We don’t need to ask for permission to live our lives. This rule probably works best for us because we met online and online dated for years before we closed the gap. In doing so, we just had to let the other person do their thing and just give a heads up.

    [–] Salad bar fixins siroonig 2 points ago in MealPrepSunday

    This is pretty genius I gotta say. Definitely keeping this in mind for when I get back to work. Thanks for sharing.

    [–] What’s a very common thing that you just cannot relate to? siroonig 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Going to the bar and drinking to oblivion week after week. Sure go grab a drink or two with buddies after work. Or hey go meet with friends for a cold pint. But going weekend after weekend to the bar, spending hundreds of dollars on drink and only to wake up with a hangover, just doesn’t make sense to me.

    [–] Dae regardless of what you're doing with your free time feel like you're wasting it and should be doing something else but don't know what? siroonig 5 points ago in DoesAnybodyElse

    All the time. When I have free time, I wonder what am I not doing that I’m supposed to be doing. Or what can I do so as not to waste time. It’s a never ending cycle.

    [–] My father wants me and my two siblings to take on $106K of debt, and we we aren't ready siroonig 1 points ago in relationships

    Call the student loan servicer for the student loan to talk about options. Parent Plus loans cannot be transferred to the students and the student is not financially responsible for the loan. And like other suggested, head over to legal advice to see if there are any other legal options to protect yourself.
