I live in NYC but I run a film festival in Australia.
What is she exactly supposed to say? "No thank you sir, but I will be available for outings on Sunday evenings between 4 and 6 in the future"? Presumably what he likes about her is at least in part her wit.
@paddlepickle this particular flaky guy (who likes to ask out and cancel) sounds like the classic "guy in a relationship who still collects phone numbers to remind himself he's a viable option".
@fabel yeah i didn't find those text examples particularly sarcastic?

Would you have allowed a man to do this to you? Maybe not, but I did - when you love someone you convince yourself a lot of things are harmless, and maybe they convince you that too. That's gaslighting - when someone tells you your instincts (which are screaming that something is very wrong) are crazy, and you're naturally an irrational or jealous person, and you believe them. I wish I had run sooner. Thank you for this.

@snowmentality Thank you for this comment, I think it's great advice. I'd also add that if you're miserable all the time and you have no idea why, it might be your toxic relationship. I (and some people I know) was so reluctant to even consider that could be the culprit, but that reluctance itself was part of the fear.
@questingbeast and Ana Ng.
@redheaded&crazie I've been obsessing over galaxy leggings all week - for when it gets to coat season and my lower legs are the only part of my not covered by coat. But I am also considering these: http://www.romwe.com/hainan-island-print-leggings-p-41571.html
@special_boots I'm a long torso sister too and I find every cute dress is indecently short on me with the waist up under my boobs and my crotch plainly visible. Ugh.
@parallel-lines Thanks. Hydroquinone and AHA products are what caused it, so I would only trust a professional to fix it now, and yeah, can't afford that.
I always wanted to have scar-free, even skin that didn't need makeup, but I think I've used too many products with exfoliating and/or whitening ingredients because now I have uneven, hyperpigmented skin with dark patches, and I need more makeup than ever :( I have no idea if this is something I can ever fix, since most suggested solutions to darkening are the exact things that caused it in my darkish olive complexion. bummer.
