    My 41 year old brother in law started dating a 20 year old back in February, she recently turned 21. They work together part time as she works as a waitress and he is the restaurant manager. Their co workers know they have something going on and that's no secret. He recently took her on a trip to Costa Rica, they're there right now and have been there for a week. She has posted photos everyday but only of herself, landscapes, food and drinks. She never puts the location or that she is with my brother in law Kevin despite them being connected on Facebook and having mutual friends and co-workers. She never tags him or even mentions his name. He doesn't leave her any comments and as a matter of fact many young boys her age comment and say she's hot and flirt with her and kevin says nothing. Kevin has never been married and he has no kids so I don't know why he'd care if she shares the photos, knowing him I'd think he'd want people to see them almost as a bragging right that hes vacationing with a 21 year old who looks hot in a bikini. 2 weeks before they went on the vacation she was complaining about how much she hates people and how much her life sucks and now here they are in a tropical paradise and neither one is revealing they are with the other. Should I be concerned for him? Who do you think is the victim here? Is she being used for her body or him for his money? He's very attractive and looks 30, i cant imagine she'd be embarassed to show him off either

    His wife and daughter died in a wreck 20 years ago. He still struggles with it everyday. To the point where he left one Friday and I did not hear from him for two days. He lied about where he was and what he was doing and after almost a week he finally told me the truth. It was Thier anniversary and he went to the spot he proposed and Thier grave and fished in between. I was so worried about him. I don’t know if something bad had happened. He lied and said he was offshore fishing. I knew he was lying and I already thought it had something to do with them. When he finally came home after 5 days and the truth...I didn’t complain. I was glad he came back and was ok. I listened and hugged him. It’s been two weeks since he disappeared. I was mad because I didn’t know where he was and if he was ok. I told him not to be ashamed and never forget them. Since then things have been rocky. He left again last night and didn’t come back. Won’t answer anyones calls or text.he keeps saying he wants to be here but I won’t stop reminding him of his lie. Which reminds him of the whole weekend. What I’m trying to figure out is what am I suppose to do or say? Nothing? Just let him come and go as he pleases because of why? It does not seem fair to me to wonder where he is. And I don’t think he should put me in that spot no matter where he is still going through. Am I wrong? I ask myself is he using this to go do whatever. I would hope not. But here I sit. Alone. Again.

  • What should I do about my dad (read below)?

    Best answer: Why are the contractors expecting to be paid for work that they should have completed on Thursday, but have not completed by EOB Friday?

    I agree that it is wrong for him to set an expectation, and then not keep it - but it was also wrong for the contractors to set up an expectation (done by EOB Thursday) and then not keep it (still not done by EOB Friday)


    But two wrongs do not make a right.

    There were much better ways to deal with this. you need to talk to your dad and say that you understand why he did this, he is just returning the behavior that he is getting, but point out to him that there were batter ways o deal with this, that he needs to keep his contractors reasonably happy.


    As for the firing of the employee - he is firing someone for telling the truth. It is an inconvenient truth, but the truth never the less.


    Ask him if he would like to be put in that position? If he did not want the chance that this employee would "rat" on him (not to the contractors, just to his family!) then he should not have involved him in this lie.


    The problem here is that until he sees that he handles the contractor situation badly, he will not understand the dilemma he put his employee under, and until he understand that dilemma he can not empathize with the employee.


    So you need to work on getting him to understand that the bad behavior of the contractors does not justify his bad behavior. You have seen enough of the "reasoning" here to be able to recognize the different fallacies in his excuses, and know how to counter them. Just as long as you can keep it calm and try to not let it get adversarial.


    Once you have that, they you can work on getting him to understand the bad position he put himself in, and the huge dilemma e put his employee in.


    Once he sees that you need to make it clear that he needs to apologize to the employee, and offer to rehire them. Hopefully this behavior is sufficiently far from the normal that they will want to come back.

  • Will he accept my apology?

    Best answer: Why did you decide that he wants to have sex with you in the first place? Acting so aggressive and pushy is not the right strategy and doesn't say "Hey I'm into you", It sounds more like "Sex, now! Do your biological job!".

Acting so aggressive and pushy is not the right strategy and doesn't say "Hey I'm into you", It sounds more like "Sex, now! Do your biological job!". He won't have sex with you not because of the way you look, but because of the way you acted. It is not about skin colour or race. For what it is worth I think that you have a problem with that, not the instructor. Next time try to be more gentle and don't make nasty racist or body shaming comments if you got rejected. Everybody has the right to say NO regardless of their gender.

    How do you see this. We are all adults with husbands, wives, children, grandchildren, yet our mother still decides what is appropriate for us to spend for each and every occasion she sees fit. So, when Uncle George retires, she says "You each owe me such and such for your part for his gift"..the gift she chooses as well. Same with birthdays, funerals, and every other event. I feel that adults should be able to decide what, when and how much they want to spend or be involved in, and let each family decide on their own if they want to partake, not feel obligated to do so. She also doesn't consider what our spouses may think about it and many of them are not big gift givers within their own families.

    Almost 4 weeks ago, my younger sister and brother passed away in a car accident. They were 19 and 17. It has been indescribably hard for all of us. Especially my mom. She still struggles to get out of bed most days. My dad went back to work, so it's kinda up to me to keep an eye on her during the day. I dropped out of school for the semester to do so. My aunt usually takes my other two siblings during the day just so they don't have to sit at home, seeing their mom all depressed. I'm trying really hard to be strong around her. I just want her to be able to function a little. I know none of us will ever be the same, but the fact that I still have to beg her to do anything scares me. Our pastor's come to the house, dozens of friends and family members have come, so she has a great support system. What can I possibly do to help her start moving on-WITHOUT pushing her? I feel like as the oldest It's my responsibility.

    Sorry to say this but id challenge this man and see why he wont make it official and go from there. Do it in a tactful way so as not to cause an argument but try to get it addressed for your own minds sake.

    I've known this group for 11 years. Both me and my fiance have tried talking to this girl multiple times throughout. If it's not interesting topics, like celeb stuff, she walks away. Her & her future husband are normally use to being the leader of the group. Since we've moved 5 yrs ago, the group hasn't talked as they normally would have...except ever since the couple took this seminar. They've only been talking to all us again because of the program, despite my prior attempts to reach out. She recently told my fiance how lazy he was and how he needs this $3K+ program because , and her words, "[your] clearly not enough motivation for him." I know I can't get mad because this is coming from a girl who has cheated on her spouse and obviously needs this program. They canceled their wedding a month b4 but still went on their honeymoon & their bachelorette/bachelor parties (wasn't invited or told). For her engagement party, I flew in without a "Hi", "Thanks" or "How've you been?" the whole night. We celebrated the Holidays after our engagement & wanted to celebrate with friends by giving them hand-made gifts while they locked themselves in 2 rooms among 33 people just to do blow. She made out with 2 guys, only admitting it when she was going to get upset that he had a stripper's number in his phone; That doesn't include the 3rd guy when he was studying abroad. She told me my job as a woman was to convince the man to do what is necessary & I'd be the reason for his regret.
