    Thoughts on Going No Contact (long)

    I'm interested in hearing from those of you who've gone "no contact" with someone your family. Whether you went NC with your parents as a result of their lack of acceptance of your AGR, or an ex with whom you have a child, or a sibling who slept with your former spouse, I'm interested in your...

    Family on facebook?

    I feel like being a decent human being has come back to bite me in the butt. Several months ago, I reluctantly accepted a friend request from my aunt. She's my mother's younger sister and I have very hard feelings toward her. The past 30 years have been a series of incidents. It started when...

    OMG I am so PO'd @ him right now

    Lovey isn't one of those seniors who are tech-averse, but there are differences in the way we use technology and many of those differences are generational. For example, people who are peer-aged to him are are more prone to download crap to protect their phones or computers, for instance...

    Veggie burger that "bleeds" and tastes like meat

    Something else I encountered on facebook... a Wall Street Journal video of a vegan burger that "bleeds" and tastes like meat. Apparently the news has been around for a while; here's a link about it from Huffington Post from October 2014. Behold, The Veggie Burger That Bleeds The vegetable...

    too much x x time on my hands...

    As mentioned elsewhere, I'm currently in perioperative recovery for two abdominal surgeries earlier this summer. I can sit, and I can lie down; as a consequence, I'm far too familiar at the moment with what's happening on facebook. While I missed the uproar over the slaying of Cecil the lion in...

    Sometimes, people say stupid things.

    I think this isn't an instance of someone not perceiving our relationship as real due to the age gap, but I may be wrong. After his divorce (a year prior to us meeting each other), Lovey was left with next to nothing in the way of setting up a household. When we decided to combine households in...

    Choosing a Color Scheme

    I just purchased property, and I'm so excited! It's in need of rehab. I've set a budget & planned the project. Now I'm to that point of the planning where I'm choosing a color palette for the decor. Now, lest you think I'm getting ahead of myself because the rehab isn't complete, I've been on...

    omg, Lovey's ex has a "type"!

    facebook is certainly a mixed blessing, isn't it? Lovey's ex wife is friends with at least one of his daughters, both of whom are his from prior relationships. I think it's odd, given that his ex wife was not overly involved with his girls and did not exactly encourage him to be involved with...

    masa harina or corn meal?

    I'm making sweet corn cake, apparently also known as corn spoon bread or corn pudding. The recipe I'm using calls for both masa harina and corn meal...but the box of corn meal I bought says "cornmeal" on one side and "masa harina" on the other! Is there a difference? MM

    Blended Family Holiday Gatherings: when your parenting styles & expectations conflict

    Blended Family Holiday Gatherings: when your parenting styles & expectations conflict Lovey and I have six children in total: he has four children with three different mothers (two girls, two boys) and I have two sons from my first marriage. My first husband and I were married 13 years; prior...

    Your Partner's Confrontation Style

    Does anyone have issue with his or her partner's style of confrontation? Lovey immediately goes into something best described as "sarcastic counterattack I'll-trump-you" mode. It's something which will be absent from my next relationship. Before we knew cancer (and with it, cancer treatment)...

    A thought on AGRs in general...

    ...but posted in YW/OM because that's the type of AGR I'm presently in. :) Ageless Love regulars know that Lovey is 19 years my senior, and that I have also been in AGRs with men 10+ years my junior. Anyone who's in an AGR has encountered the biases about AGRs, whether the elder partner is male...

    Did I call it wrong?

    Today is Lovey's 65th birthday. Lovey's longtime friend (they went to school together from first grade through high school) has an older sister who's celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary this weekend. His longtime friend also has a younger sister whose birthday is today, and because of the...

    I offered my cousin a kidney today.

    I have a distant cousin who's never had good kidneys, even when we were kids. In addition to being extended family, we both attended the same school (he was a year behind me) kindergarten through 12th grade and were friends. He's been on dialysis for a while, and now requires treatment 3x...

    One person--ONE--insists on group prayer before family events

    My mother makes a big deal out of everyone holding hands and praying before family events. Thankfully, Christian versus other forms of spirituality isn't an issue; everyone identifies as Christian, but are members of different Christian sects. It doesn't bother me that she wants to give...

    I'm just fussin'

    Lovey's youngest son is moving to the midwest to pursue career opportunities, and I'm happy for him. Lovey's ex wife decided to throw a big "going away" party for their son, and I'm cool with that. Lovey's ex wife for some reason felt it appropriate to ask--using their son as a middleman--if...

    "I want a 'normal' relationship"

    I'm coming out of a depressive episode. The other night I couldn't sleep due to a thought that disturbed me, so I got up and wrote it down. When I returned to bed 20 minutes later, Lovey decided that would be a good time to talk to me about "everything". As a partner his communication skills...

    So, I "blew up" my ex husband's cell phone today...

    I'm not sure what triggered it. It may have been my ex-MIL's recent disclosure, these several weeks past, in the form of a "here's the latest on ___" story, that my ex-FIL supposedly intends to leave his home to my ex husband's stepson. This after several years of having nothing to do with our...

    Chronic illness and "but you don't look sick"

    As many of you are aware, I am predisposed to depression and have been treated for it for 20+ years. Chronic pain, fatigue and headaches accompany depression, which can often become worse in winter. This winter has been pretty rough for me. While I don't feel "depressed" per se, I am...

    Supporting your partner's *other* relationships

    From time to time, I've discussed a few "trickle down" effects of Lovey's somewhat checkered relationship history, which resulted in such situations as fathering four children by three different women. It's a situation accompanied by a great deal of emotional baggage and a good many emotional...
