She wants your approval to take it the next step with this guy

😕 I guess so... to externalize the decision and get validation. Though my approval or not, she will have to live with the consequences. I also feel that she just wants an outlet to talk about him... just an ear to listen to her pining and how much he loves her and what not. I’m done listening to the same stories over and over! I hate that I’m building resentment towards her conceited behavior around this topic. Don’t want to lose a friend nor do I want to have resentment towards my friend. But how do I openly talk to her if she’s being knowingly or unknowingly so conceited?? Ugh! End rant.

Sounds like she’s knee deep in an affair and has no one else to share it with . I would call her ass out lol

I feel like my kids 1st grade teacher is being too strict, but I'm not sure if this is normal or I'm being sensitive because it's my child. E.g. she gave him 2/10 for his math homework because he doodled on the page, colored in the circle that has the page number, didn't draw the word problem neatly, wrote his last name under the name line, and says some of his numbers aren't legible. All his answers were correct, except one where he forgot to fill in the blank. Is this normal? X-posting
