stirringleaf, glad the party went well even if your ex is such a dork!!
Steph, sorry to hear about the delay but maybe it will work out better in the end!
Cheyenne, hugs on not feeling forward, I'm not good at it either, which is part of why online dating helped for me. At least then we both knew we were looking!!
Vanessa, that comment is a little frustrating. Have you talked to him about it? I very much agree with you about the value of financial independence, and I'm struggling with that a bit myself. It's not that I was "independent" because I still had a lot of family help, but now that DP and I have a future together, we have to consider one another a lot more than I'm used to! And there are some kinks to work out...but we're getting there. I hope that you get a better answer from him next time you talk.
Solareyna, I agree that's a sign that someone is not over their ex. If they talk about their ex in day to day ways, then they haven't really gone through all the grieving process. Listen to yourself about this, and talk to him about it as well. But it is something to be concerned about (as you are) and I agree with Holland, don't "just get used to" anything that bothers you!!
Not much going on here...wedding plans are moving along! We finally have a place, at a really nice park/beach nearby, and a date, and our pastor is free, so that's cool! I'm looking at dress patterns and hoping to sew up some clothes, along with, of course, all the other craziness of life! I'm getting very excited. Oh, and DP and I are hopefully going to come up with some sort of prenuptial agreement opting out of no-fault divorces, and instead only allowing a divorce for adultery, abuse, abandonment, or mutual consent. It just feels better that way, and we both agree that's what marriage SHOULD be. Anyways...
I'm starting to wonder how to tell people at the law school...after all, I kind of had this huge reputation (at least if felt that way to me!) as the single mother, and here I am, pregnant and engaged. I just know it will generate gossip, which I don't really care about, I just want to avoid the thought of it, kwim? Heck, most of these people have no kid plans in any sort of future, so I'm just crazy to them. I'll be showing soon enough (it's still somewhat hidden), it just feels a little weird.
Hope everyone is having a great week!!
