"I know for me that's just how long it takes before I feel the housekeeping is out of control, and I can tie that to how often I like to do the heavy cleaning and the grocery store sales cycle. That is, it takes 2 to 3 months to realize…"

"Funny, that seems to be a tradition. My wife and I had been seeing each other for about 2 or 3 months when she told me that she wanted to 'cool things down a bit' and we shouldn't see each other. God, that hurt. I had, prior to her,…"

"I don't know if it was you, and it's not important enough to go back. I agree with what you're saying here. I just think this "spend your 20s doing all sorts of self-discovery, growth, and change; then you'll settle…"

"Hey Rebekah, I'm going to go out on a limb and assume you're talking about my comments. Just wanted to say sorry if you feel I implied that you fit my generalization. I agree that not all in their 20's have rocky relationships.…"

"Thanks bud. I understand what you're saying and if I had of read it the first time it would have made sense and I would have definitely avoided talking about our relationship when she was over on monday night. I haven't heard from her…"

"Let her go. Don't answer the phone or stop-by. If she wants her space then you need to give it to her. If she questions you about it tell her that you have her best interests in mind and yours too and that seeing her makes you feel bad. You…"

"PS. This is why you should stick with it, and why she won't if you're too forward with her: “In life, people tend to wait for good things to come to them. And by waiting, they miss out. Usually, what you wish for doesn't fall in…"

"Yes, I've been there. And from my experience, women can sense a relationship's end before men can. Take a deep breath, take stock of yourself, and realize it's over. This is not a bad thing; You had the courage to love. In time, this…"

"What you are talking about is pretty typical. It sounds like you are both in what I call an infatuation phase. Being in love at this point in a relationship is like a chemical addiction. There is no good way to balance without being in at least a…"

Colorado gymnastics teacher Dylan Schuetz falls 100 feet down cliff, lands on his feet

Did any of you see this story?  Colorado gymnastics teacher Dylan Schuetz was cliff-climbing recently with some of his buddies, when he fell some 100 feet.  Amazingly, he survived, albeit with both legs broken, and says he put his gymnastics training into use the moment he lost his grip.  He also happened to be shirtless at the time, which is common for male cliff climbers.  And, as a former gymnast, I know most guys practice gymnastics shirtless.  I certainly hope he makes a complete recovery…See More
