  1. It is not appropriate of your boyfriend to be that close with his ex and it is hurtful and harmful to both you and the relationship, most importantly. I would try to set limits with him and tell him how you feel.

    How Do You Feel Right Now #8

    I'm super annoyed because some girl infiltrated our cozy group last night, hit on and flirted with every taken man in the group, including my fiancee. Some nerve she had. I don't know her, but she was a nuisance to say the least. I could tell my girlfriend was getting peeved too because she was hitting on her fiancee too. She looked angry.

    Thank you for your reply! The CEO hugged several people goodbye, so he's like that. But he did make a point of talking to me at the party along with the HR Director. The CEO has told me that they really appreciate the approach I bring to the table. I don't know about writing any sort of guide -- I am not sure how much I could help. The only way I've survived is through hard work, dedication to my career path, sticking things out and taking my anti-anxiety meds as needed.That's about it!

    Well, work has definitely gotten far better as time goes on. I just got home from a long day, but we had a party bash for a colleague who is getting married. What company throws a pre-wedding party for their colleagues??? Unheard of! I love this company! I feel elated right now too because the HR Director chit chatted with me afterwards and told me that they love me there, meaning the higher ups in the organization, including the CEO. She said she's really happy I am there and gave me a big hug. It felt soooo nice, especially after being abused by multiple bosses for years and years! I've never been so appreciated OR loved at work. It feels really really nice for once. Wow, I don't know what I did to deserve this, but I'lll take it for sure.

    Wedding Plans!

    So, we don't know how the wedding will be paid for -- we may need to elope! LOL. I need to ask my parents if they are willing and can help. I could pay for at least a part of it, and so could my fiancee. Together we have some money, and if my parents pitch in, we could probably afford a small family wedding. We've talked about it and only want family there. Our friends won't mingle very well with our conservative families, or rather, my conservative family, so we decided to keep them separate. We'll have a big bash with all our friends afterwards in town somewhere special, with one of our favorite bands. So we know we'll get married sometime next year. It could be at any time, we haven't decided yet. I think it's important to him to have his parents present, since they're old and may not last too much longer. I'd rather not elope, I think. And a girlfriend offered to go dress browsing with me. WOW, I'm actually going to be looking for a beautiful wedding dress! I cannot wait to call him my husband. I cannot stop staring at my engagement ring! It sparkles and shines really nicely in all different kinds of light. It's a large-ish dark pink sapphire stone, with a solid ring of diamonds around it and diamonds down the sides. It's absolutely stunning!! It almost looks like a light purple/violet in certain light. So, that's about it on the wedding front right now! More to come....

    The boots are beautiful! They're a maroon color with laces all up the back to the knee. And thanks! Yeah, I suppose every bride wants to look good, right? We haven't set an exact date yet, but we know it will be next year sometime and in Florida where his parents are.

    I just bought a pair of $250 tall boots to replace my old ones that are now unwearable. Yes, very expensive, but heck, I have expensive taste and it makes me feel better. And... I just realized now I REALLY have to lose the weight I've gained in the last year. ARGH. I've put on extra weight living with my fiance. I want to look fantastic in my wedding dress! I know it sounds superficial, but what bride doesn't want to look beautiful in her special gown, right??

    Thank you. It’s been a rough day.
  9. It's 9/11. My now fiance lost his beloved, precious brother at the age of 32 in the Twin Towers terrorism act on this day 17 years ago. I am sitting with him in grief and horror as we watch the 9/11 events, reliving it all over again on TV. I also lost a friend from college on this day, in the Flight 93 terrorist attack. My fiance and I have been crying all morning. It hits me deeply -- his pain, suffering and loss. He cried to me that he never got to say goodbye. And now I cry, imagining it were me, if I had lost my sister the same way. I cannot even imagine how he must feel. It is SO deeply saddening. His grief is immense. We've been on such a high from our recent engagement announcement, to now feeling such a low. What a dichotomy. It's just absolutely horrific, what happened. But we have each other, we're happy and we're thrilled about our future life together, so there's light in the midst of darkness. At least I can hold his hand, tell him how much I love him, and comfort him on this very sad and tragic day. So today is a day to honor all lives lost and to remember the events that will never be shaken from our history and minds. The horror of this day, I will never forget. May all souls rest in peace. Amen.

    It's very strange to be on such a high from our recent engagement announcement to now feel at such a low over the tragic loss of a most precious life and many lives. I am beside myself with grief, but I still feel happiness because I love him so very much.

    Thank you so much. We are both crying, waiting to hear Stu's name mentioned. I also lost a friend from college on this day. He was one of the heroes of Flight 93 who rushed the cockpit to try and save the passengers. Man, this day is just awful.

    Deeply sad today and remembering the 9/11 tragedy and great loss of life. My now fiance lost his brother in the Twin Towers tragedy, and here I sit with him now, crying, watching and reliving the tragedy on TV. I took the day off from work to be with him on this most horrific day.

    I’m feeling happy. Floating on cloud 9. I see so much sadness though and that makes me sad.
