I'm a never-married, few relationships 40 year old, and one moment when I realized it was OK was when a friend of mine got married for the second time. For a minute, I was sad that she found two people to marry, when I hadn't had one yet, but then I remembered how totally awful her first marriage was, and was grateful that I hadn't had to go through that, and then I could focus on just being happy for her.
I do think long-term singledom is just more steady -- I don't get to have the highs of being in a relationship, but I also don't have to deal with the lows.
I don't know why they always need new designs! After careful review of these outfits through the years, I think they should go back (at least for summer) to the Sydney uniforms, which look to be a throwback to many earlier Games. Blazer, pants, hat. Nice! For winter, I vote for the Sarajevo shearling jackets. In case anyone asked me.
@sissyemily Yeah, that's ridiculous. Even my middle-class parents do not have a basement I could live in or enough extra money to support me indefinitely, and I grew up with a ton of privilege!
@Jaya I also appreciated that someone came up with a concept that meant they really could only cast people from 25-30 years old, and it made sense. Olivia Wilde as Justin Timberlake's mother!
@celeec4@twitter I just heard a great Fresh Air interview about anxiety, and one of the things he said was that top performance is actually in the middle of a bell curve of anxiety. So being a little nervous helps! Debilitating anxiety, not so much.
I have no actual suggestions, sorry.
@hallelujah Grown-Ass Woman is EXACTLY what I was thinking as I read this!
You guys. You guys!
@I'm Right on Top of that, Rose Yeah, I think there's a difference between "activities for women" like baby showers, which, sure, invite both female partners, and "ladyfriend group activities" which are no-SO-zones. Right? You still might have stuff to work out with your actual partner about the first category of things, but it doesn't seem that hard to invite just one partner to the second kind.
@celeec4@twitter That's what I mean! It's crazy.
