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

    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]

  • Mamie started the topic New Styles in the forum Fashion & Lifestyle 4 weeks, 1 day ago

    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]

  • I discovered one of my favorite albums has a deluxe version with three bonus songs.  I feel all of them are beautiful and I’m very glad to have found these!

    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]

    I tried a new look this year with my polish color, I received  many compliments this summer! 🙂

  • Hi Sara, welcome to Female Forum! 🙂

    I’m really terribly sorry about what you’ve gone through with your friend, I know this can be really hard.  I’ve been in his situation, where I was in a relationship none of my friends and family approved of, and I know nothing works, anything you say about her will only drive him further away from you.  He m…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Friendship Advice in the forum Introductions 1 month ago

    Oh yes, I totally think so, people like you and myself must look like an absolutely irresistible feast for those people, right?  I also know what you mean about becoming more aware, I’ve only really starting noticing how toxic people affect me negatively.  I normally don’t like to think that way about people, which probably contributed to why I…[Read more]

    I fear narcissism, sadly. 🙁 I’ve known too many people in my life, all they want is to use you for themselves, and are only interested in you when he or she’s getting something, but won’t put themselves out for you when you need them, and don’t really care about your needs as a person.  I feel like it’s getting worse and worse, you know?

  • Thank you kindly @MiaKora, I’d love to share the link but sadly it’s going to be in a private forum so it won’t be viewable, but I’ll totally let you know how people answer. 🙂

  • Mamie replied to the topic Friendship Advice in the forum Introductions 1 month, 1 week ago

    I know what you mean about how you feel about guilt for not reaching out to her personally, I can totally relate to you, it’s funny I feel like you and I have a very similar approach in our personality to our friendships.

    I don’t feel you’d need to congratulate her in person, I know I must sound just awful for saying so, but I feel she’s…[Read more]

    Hi HappyT, and welcome to our Female Forum. 🙂

    I’m really so sorry about what you’ve gone through with your old friend, I’ve had similar experiences myself and it’s so heartbreaking.  I feel it’s really difficult when you sort of just drift away like what’s happened to you and your friend.

    I’ve lost contact with almost everyone I was ever…[Read more]

  • Oh I totally know what you mean, you’re absolutely right about her weightlessness!

    Well I guess if I know this bird is friendly, I’d let him take me wherever he wants to, he knows things I don’t about flying and what there is to see, so I wouldn’t act like I’m an expert, and I’d love to go as long as I can.  My hardest part was establishing he…[Read more]

  • I enjoy pedicures over manicures myself, well I have a bad habit of biting my finger nails.  I keep my fingernails short and I don’t really treat them, just filing really, I also type a lot for work and I do a lot of cooking and baking, and I find it helps me to be neat.

    My feet are a totally different story, lol.  I’ll spend quite a bit of t…[Read more]

  • I love airplanes, but I don’t feel so fondly for airports.  I feel very nervous at security, I’m always terrified something’s going to happen.  Also they’re so large and crowded, I feel panicky.  I don’t feel so bad at smaller airports, like I loved Buffalo/Niagara where I used to fly out of when I lived in Canada, but Hartsfield-Jackson in At…[Read more]

  • Mamie replied to the topic Yard Care/Outside Work in the forum General Chat 1 month, 1 week ago

    Thank you all very kindly.  On my street I’ve seen other women mowing their yards, so I figured it’d be easy for me to do also, but having tried I don’t think it’s something I could really learn, and I feel a bit part of that is because I don’t really want to learn, you know?  I don’t enjoy sweating or exerting myself like that, I guess that sor…[Read more]
