This Confession comes from "Trying to stay celibate"
I am a 28-year-old woman who has decided, after 11 years and 50-plus partners, to become celibate. A couple of friends have attempted to get me to break my vow. These men know how they make me feel, and I am finding it difficult to stay away from them. Although I have stopped spending time with them, I still feel the urge to be with them.
So, do you have any advice on how to stay strong? It's been one month, and I plan on staying this way until I get married.
This one comes from "Uneasy in California"
My boyfriend's son, "Matt," just turned 21, but he looks 16. He has just announced that he's moving in with a 50-year-old woman -- the mother of a friend of his.
I feel very uncomfortable about the idea of welcoming her into my home and making conversation as if they are a normal couple. His father and I are the woman's age. I don't believe Matt has told his mom or his siblings yet. He's quickly losing friends over this awkward situation.
I'm usually of the mindset to "live and let live," but here I am tested. It feels creepy. What is the proper way to handle this?
