    an event. He was married at the time but has recently divorced and he reached out (we're in the same field). I don't remember much about him as we only spoke for a couple of minutes, but I have a horrible feeling he has ear gages. It's possible it was the guy with him, but ONE of them definitely did. I have a strangely intense reaction to them. Have to look away or I feel a bit sick. This is the only thing like this I can't handle. Fine with piercings, tattoos and all the rest of it. But the ear stretching thing just makes me want to gag. Not sure how I'll get through a whole evening if he has them. Anyone else feel like this?

  24. Toddler I've posted here before that my bf has this female fb friend who is married with 2 young kids, lives in another state, yet is always posting suggestive things on bf's fb wall and...(more) 3 hr 59 min ago (10 replies)
    messaging him. It's been going on for awhile & caused some friction with us so I've let it go for a long time. But now her posts have started up again and she made a comment on his wall today about how he should come visit her. I'm feeling uncomfortable and unsure of how I should approach this with him. Wwyd? And why does this woman want my bf when she has a dh & little kids of her own? I'm honesty baffled. Also, she is has made it clear she doesn't want to know me or acknowledge me. Bizarre huh? Bf and I have been together a long time - he has never met her irl & only "knows" her and her dh thru online gaming.

        cool or respectful to me. Should I just stay mum on it or bring it up with him? He will get angry and dramatic and roll his eyes and act like the injured party and ask if I want him to unfriend her. Honestly I just want to know if something is going on.

            why he eats up the attention & encourages it when he gets plenty of attention and love from me. It is strange. I guess I just have to let it go.
