rant or rave

thought i create a thread to rant and rave. more ranting for me...i am a complainer

so i have a friend who is getting married in november. she has 2 children. one with an ex-boyfriend and one with the guy she is marrying. her fiance has 3 or 4 kids from a previous marriage (he just got officially divorced not too long ago and the reason he got divorced because he was cheating on his wife with my friend...i know real nice!) they live with her mother and have no plans on getting their own place when they finally get married (and btw my friend doesn't work and never got her license). so i just received an invitiation to her bridal shower (of course it has to be during labor day weekend and plus i despise showers). normally when people register it's to target or wal-mart or whatever. but she was just basically registered for money towards her honeymoon. it's like wtf...why even make me come all the way out if you're just asking for money. can't i send it in the mail? damn.

Re: rant or rave

that's really tacky that she is pretty much expecting (isn't that what a shower is about... you expect presents, right?) money & I probably wouldn't even give any. Just my 2 cents.

You can't help the way she is. You can either support her or not. I understand your frustration. I worry about their marriage that's for sure. I mean it sounds sort of rocky right now. And adding on that many kids to the picture plus her having no job.

thanks. yeah i was probably just going to give a target gift card. i've never been to a shower where they basically only asked for money and it is to help pay for their honeymoon.

i understand what you're saying. she is 28 and he's 35 and they have a bunch of kids. it's like when are they going to grow up and be adults? the whole point of getting married is to be on your own and start your own family...not live with your parents. it's not like they are going through any financial difficulties. oh and he has a daughter that is 15 or 16 and she is having a baby in november so my 28 yo friend will be a step grandma...talk about weird!

Re: rant or rave

ok I have a rant

I have this friend that I have been friends with since we were babies... we're like 1 week apart and we've just always been friends. That's always what I thought it would be, it was kind of like an unspoken thing. Once he found out I was single about a month ago he acted the same as he always has... he's such a great guy, the kind of friend anyone would want... when he found out I started dating the guy I am now, he sent me a text going off saying how no one else will ever care for me as much as he does and how the best thing to ever happen to me was standing right in front of my face the whole time... I told him that he is and always will be just a friend to me. There's not much else I could have said because it was the truth. I haven't talked to him since that day... & the other day his myspace status said "Oh great, so you're dating another douchebag." just childish stuff... Today he posted this as a mypsace bulletin...

"I wish you would care about me even half as much as I care about you. do you think I bought christmas presents for all my friends? do you think I bring people coffee cause I have nothing better to do? do you believe I would do ANYTHING you asked or needed at ANYTIME for anybody else? I wish you would just realize the only thing I have done to you is think you are the most beautiful girl I've ever seen. the only thing you have to be upset at me about,is for I called you out when you hurt me. I wish you would for once,understand you just sending me a text out of the blue that just says "hey...how are u?" makes my whole day worth while...I wish you would just actually be a friend. I wish you would do that...or leave."

He's talking about me... I don't know how I hurt him... I have been straight up with him from day one, before the boy bullshit... I don't even want to text him or talk to him... it would just be awkward.. I saw him at his 2nd job the other day when I was with my bf... I saw him and I know he saw me but instead of going up and giving him a hug or something I just avoided going near him... I don't know what he wants from me.

Anyway just a rant, not necessarily asking for advice or answers.

Re: rant or rave

for lack of where to move my comments from "who are you" thread....?

To Roxy: Sorry you are going thru shit ATM...just like Fresh Prince says: parents just don't understand. Sometimes, they forget what it was like to grow up. And, it sounds like they are over-protective...which really, isn't so bad if you think about it.... At least they care about you and love you. That's a whole lot more than some nasty parents out there like, for example, who would rather buy some drugs than feed their own kids.

You are gonna date who you wanna date, see who you wanna see, and do what you wanna do. They just need to learn to support your decisions whether they agree or not...it's a part of letting go of their "baby" IMO, at your age, you shouldn't have to be dictated on what your parents say/tell you to do. However, since you are under their roof, I am sure "their rules" apply. I moved out at 17 and never went back. I just couldn't deal with my mom being in my business 24/7. I'm her only kid, she's over-protective, but she means well - and she's been my savior in a whole lot of situations that I never thought I'd have to deal with...like losing friends/boyfriends lives, workman's comp., legal shit, etc.

I have always been independent, never asked for money, never asked for the 'rents to buy me anything. Everything I have is because I earned it myself. I struggled paying for rent/college/car all at the same time as a teen to early 20's. I have been laid off and been able to come back from that. I eloped 3 years ago and moved from everything I once knew in CA to nothing in VA at the drop of a hat just for him. And that was one of my most crazy and unbeliveable experiences to date...but I don't regret it at all. My husband is an amazing guy and he is protective, but let's me do what I want to do because he trusts me. I can't complain =)

So screw what everyone else says/thinks...it's YOUR life and you only get ONE. Live it up!!!!
