Stop the Boob Grabbing
I babysit for my friend's 3-year-old son every once in awhile. Last time I babysat, the boy kept grabbing at my boobs (think he was aiming for my nipples). I kept removing his hands but I think it's a problem that my friend and her husband should address. My sister (who's also friends with my friend) told me to butt out. It's disturbing! What if he's doing that to his teachers?
Not Your Kid
My sister has good intentions but I think our friend will just be really embarrassed and not ask my sister to babysit again and my sister needs the money. I am sure she is aware of her kid's boob grabbing habits. Besides, it's sort of funny and cute.
I’ve been dating this guy for almost a year. He recently bought a new apartment and has been asking me for advice (color for the walls, types of lamps, carpets etc. to buy, etc). We’ve never talked about the future and my friends think that he doesn’t really want to commit to me. I feel like the fact that he’s involving me in his apartment decisions means he sees us seriously in the future. My friends are quick to point out that the apartment is a 1BR and has the feel of a bachelor pad.
Jackie is selling herself short. She’s been with this guy who will call her “his girl” but not “his girlfriend”. He has never introduced her to his brothers who all live in the next town over. Jackie keeps on looking for clues that he’s serious about her – like this whole apartment thing – but we all think she’s just settling and that this guy doesn’t have any real intentions of making their relationship a real thing.
Matt never puts the toilet seat down and I inevitably end up falling into the toilet when he doesn’t. As if it’s not bad enough that he doesn’t put it down in his house but he doesn’t even when we’re in mine. I grew up in a household of four women and one guy and cannot, for the life of me, remember to make sure the seat is down when I have to use the bathroom. Is this one request so unreasonable? None of my girlfriends have this issue with their significant other.
It’s just as easy for me to put it down as it is for her to put it up. I already put up with some other house rules (using skim milk instead of 2%, eating a mostly vegetarian diet, drinking wine etc). I can’t remember for the life of me to put down the toilet seat and it’s just really irritating every time she yells at me about it. I know my dad never puts down the seat at home and my mom's fine with that. This should just be Rosa's one give in our relationship.
Make Your Own Bed
My boyfriend grew up in a family where his mom made his bed everyday. When we were living separately, he always made his bed at his apartment (but didn’t force me to make mine when we were in my apartment). Now that we live together, he wants me to help make the bed every other day. I think it’s a ridiculous waste of time, especially since we keep the bedroom door closed when people come by anyhow. If he wants to do it, I think he should just deal with it.
I DO Make the Bed!
My mom made my bed when I was a kid but I started doing it on my own when I started college. I get lazy every once in awhile but most days, I want to have my bed made. Now that we live together and share other chores (laundry, cooking, shopping for household goods, getting the mail, etc.), it’s only fair for us to share this duty. I end up making the bed right before I walk out the door every morning because she gets up later than I do. I’d just like for her to do it every other day.
