I'm in my early thirties and I have two small children. I have have been separated/divorced for a little over two years now. I'm not by any means desperate but I'm curious what it's like dating in your 30's. Obviously those of us who are in their 30's aren't in our early 20's anymore. What are the rules? What are the norms? What are the standards? Is it even worth it?
I have a couple friends who are in their 30's, never married, and go on dates often. They use these dating apps (which I won't use). Every date they go on ends with sex after the first date?
I tend to keep a comfortable distance and perhaps at this point in my life, I can be content with loneliness because I'm not sure it's worth the risk if it's that bad out there...3 AnswersSingles & Dating4 months ago
My friends daughter is getting bullied at school. The bully's parents are best friends with the guidance counselor and they have money. This bully has caused issues with other girls too. She has been reported by a number of other mothers and fathers and nothing happens. My friend has is in a sticky situation because IF she says something again to the principal (she already has in the past) it will make things worse for her daughter and they have already proven they won't do anything about it.
Any ideas on what can be done?3 AnswersFriends9 months ago
I'm 33 and I have two kids. I don't want any more kids. After my second child, my hormones drastically changed. I have my period every 21 days whereas before they came every 28 days. Prior to my period I suffer from HORRIBLE PMS for 7-10 days. So that's 14 days that I'm not myself and basically 14 days of "normal". I'm a very happy go lucky, and chipper and joyful person. I HATE being grumpy. I always see the positive in everything. This is just who I am. I say this just to let you all know that I am not a depressed person.
With that said. I am recently divorced (although not heart broken about it at all). It was just a very toxic marriage and I don't want to go into detail of it. So until I can get myself back on my feet, I am living with my parents. My Dad isn't too much better than my husband and he makes living at home unbearable even though I and gone for 9 hours a day and speak to him very little. He is a miserable person, he is degrading with his words and he cannot handle his emotions whatsoever. He yells and screams when he doesn't get his way or if my Mom and I don't go in with his control. He won't get help and "it's everyone else' fault he is this way". So with that said. I KNOW this type of environment is NOT healthy and I plan on moving out the second I pay off my car (only $10,000 left). I know this is one of my leading causes of stress-my dad. But the PMS is unbearable and I am thinking about getting a hysterectomy. Should I wait until I move out?12 AnswersWomen's Health9 months ago
