Quote from: Essie Mae on August 05, 2017, 02:01:23 PMWhenever it's my friend's husband's turn to pick us up from the station he always stipulates a time window to be avoided because he's having his dinnner. He's not diabetic or anything, so he could have it any time. I moan about Mr M sometimes, but he's not that prescriptive and he he has given lifts even to people he doesn't know v well at inconvenient times.
Quote from: Essie Mae on August 05, 2017, 02:43:32 PMOf course we all knew Your Grumpiness that you are good and virtuous. Just go easy on the bleach. Gloucester, you so hit the nail on the head. How did you know he's a control freak? (My friend's husband, not mine).
Quote from: Firebird on August 05, 2017, 04:52:08 PMThe older you get, the harder it is to make friends. I noticed this after I was out of college, and it's gotten harder as the years have gone by. And this was before we became parents. It takes a lot more effort to put yourself out there, find people with similar interests and whose personalities mesh with yours. The jump from "casual acquaintance" to "friend" is particularly tricky. You can point to a lot of reasons why, but I think this is one reason religion persists, because it gives you that automatic sense of community. Powerful thing that is.
