    Thank you all kindly for your lovely comments!

    My nickname is “M a m i e”, it’s a common nickname for my real name, Mary.  My nieces call me “Aunty Mamie” affectionately, so I just sort of picked that for my screen name here.

    I celebrated my 36th birthday a couple weeks ago, and I decided to be a princess for the day! And because I’ve been getting a lot of snow, I’m in the Christmas spirit a little early this year 🙂


  • I just turned thirty six a couple weeks ago, I’m unmarried right now and I have no children.  I’m engaged to be married next year, and I desperately want to have a baby.  I’ve been worried about my age and I’ve had some fears, and I also find it’s really hard to relate to other women my age.  Most women I meet who are about as old as me all ha…[Read more]

    I posted this on Tuesday night at another forum I visit, I was rather intoxicated when I posted it, but it was on my one-year anniversary of when I had my last fight with my abusive ex-boyfriend and he moved out.  I’ve been slowly feeling comfortable sharing parts of my story over this last year, and I’m finally feeling good about being open.  I d…[Read more]

    Hi Deyla,

    I hope you’re feeling okay, I’m really sorry you’ve had to go through this, but like everyone else I’m really glad to hear you’re out of that relationship with him.  Many of us have been in relationships like yours, and recovering can be very difficult, especially since one part of abuse is your abuser conditions you to feel dependent…[Read more]

  • I was completely unable to motivate my ex boyfriend when he was living with me, but he had all the power in our relationship.  Only one thing I could get him to do was cut the grass, and only by saying I’ll do it myself and he was too embarrassed to have his girlfriend outside mowing I guess.

    My new way of thinking is he won’t do something and…[Read more]

  • I used to be on facebook, but I had to delete my account for my mental health.  I just couldn’t take it any more, I’m probably overly sensitive or something, but I really struggle with peoples’ horrible comments to things, and I don’t like how on facebook you’re totally exposed to every idiot in the world and it’s so unregulated, I would feel…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic The ideal gift for Women in the forum A Woman’s View 4 weeks ago

    I completed your survey for you.

    I have a locked closet in my finished basement where I store all my wrapping supplies and gifts as I buy them.  I buy things all the time, thinking like “Oh, I think so-and-so would just love this!” and I keep them until I need to give them.  I like to keep track of what people important to me like so I can try t…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Thinking gifts in the forum General Chat 4 weeks ago

    My fiance loves comic books, and he collects figurines and such, so my major gift is I bought him this statue thingy of Thanos from Avengers, it was rather expensive and has added meaning because I first met him at that movie.  I have a few smaller gifts for him, like a bottle of bourbon I know he likes, some comic book anthology things, some…[Read more]

    Oh dear, drinking caffeine also drives me straight to the ladies’ room, and I already have enough issues already lol.

  • Mamie replied to the topic Womens mags? in the forum General Chat 2 months, 1 week ago

    I’ve never really read any magazines at all, I guess it just wasn’t something I was really exposed to or interested in.  I’ve always enjoyed reading articles online, but I’ve never really stuck to a particular site or anything, I just sort of click on links that look intriguing.

    I’m really sorry my words weren’t comforting @Schrodinger Cat, I hope I didn’t upset you too much.  I apologize, I just saw so much of my ex boyfriend in things you said about your husband, and I’m still less than a year removed from him so my pain is still fresh in my mind.

    I felt very much like you, I remembered times when I recalled why I…[Read more]

  • I’ve changed my personal style lately, I had my hair cut shorter on Sunday, and I’ve been wearing more dresses.  I’ve had compliments from this one, but also some people criticizing its design and suggesting I need a cinch belt.  Oh well, I guess it does make my waist look a little wide, but it’s comfortable.  I’m feeling better about myself no…[Read more]

    Hello greensun, welcome to Female Forum!  My name is Mary, and I joined several months ago, after I was finally ready to start moving on after I ended a long-term abusive relationship last year.  I’ve felt so much wonderful support sharing here, there are so many amazing women who visit, and it’s been lovely connecting with people who either u…[Read more]

    Hi Cat, welcome to Female Forum! 🙂

    Oh dear, my situation wasn’t exactly like yours, but a lot of things you said remind me a lot of my ex-boyfriend, who I was with for nine years.  Just to warn you he was abusive towards me and I was lucky to get out of my relationship with him.

    For me, my biggest concerning thing is how you mention he blames y…[Read more]

  • A lot of what you’re describing reminds me of my ex boyfriend, and he was manipulative and abusive.  I agree with @cassandra, putting up with his abuse can be very difficult, especially when he does things like he blames it all on you.  You’ve recognized his cycles, he’s probably only going to get worse, I wasted nine years on my boyfriend that I…[Read more]

    I know what you mean, about putting a lot of respect into relationships and then how difficult it is when your feelings aren’t reciprocated.  I think maybe I struggle more in my relationships with men, I find it more difficult standing up for myself to a man than I do with women.  With other women I still struggle a lot moving friendship from c…[Read more]
