It sounds like it's all going to work out, or will get there! Also, I appreciate any/all civil interactions with other Sloggers, so thank you phuni44. I think we're more or less on the same page at this point. Heh Good luck, Gag! Some time will make this one feel better...although that does little good for you right now. Good luck!

@23 I hear what you're saying but I don't really get "distraught" when I read her letter. Besides, being dumped sucks no matter how long it's been, right?

The second part of what you wrote seems to be easier said than done. I tend to agree with you, it's just stuff. But I don't expect someone else in a heartache situation to see it that B&W.

Readers keep using the word "gift", but I don't see that anywhere in the letter, not even implied. She used her own money for items to use together and that didn't work out so well. Unless she's at risk of being physically harmed when asking for these things back, Dan's advice makes sense, as does what @3 said. 6 months of dating? No need to turn any of it into a dramatic big deal, just ask for it back and see what happens.

So, all you FB loving dickweeds think tax loopholes are awesome, eh? Cool.

Although that's funny and made me smile a great big smile, that sentence would not make sense. @33

@25 you're the one who sounds like they need to unbutton their pantaloons. My comments were made with a shrug, re:the show.

Well, that's not exactly how it came off to me @19. It felt very campy and once again helped spread a negative view of a different option for giving birth. (The infant mortality rate is fairly high in the US compared to other countries.) I don't actually have (or desire to have) children, but I appreciate options and I appreciate the field of midwifery. It's the same when the media portrays all women screaming during labor. Anyway, just an opinion and a reason why the show lost it's luster, for me. It would be noticeable and nice to see these subjects handled less stereotypically.

Exactly. ^^ Who?

I lost what little interest I had in this show after they shed such a negative (stereotype) light on midwifery. Eg midwives are crackpot hippies, you're cray if you use a midwife, etc. Incredibly disappointing.
