    Men can be just as catty and gossipy as women; in fact, I've frequently found them to be even more so.

    Actually, it's one of the reasons mixed groups of friends/co-workers/etc. are preferable - it seems to keep most people from unleashing their worst sides.

    Variety (age, ethnicity, background, etc., as well as sex/gender) makes for better groups, IME. It's one of the reasons the mere thought of living in a "retirement community" has always sent shivers down my spine.

    OMFG, I need to get the hell out of here. Got into it (once again) with my NPD mother. :bang: It's a wonder I made it past childhood. Of course, I'm still very child-like, and not always in the good sense... dependent... which I guess is really quite common for folks in my situation.

    I won't give details because it's just the same ol' stupid sh*t every time... doesn't matter what sparks it, it's always a case of her never EVER being wrong about ANYTHING.... constant denial, eternal dishonesty. And as always, I'M the rotten horrible one for pointing it out & daring to be utterly frustrated with an habitual liar. Some personality types just shouldn't have children. That's one reason why I never wanted any. If I didn't f*ck 'em up, the "grand-parenting" certainly would. :brood:

    And me, now being of the brutally honest, no bullsh*t sort.... I can't f*cking stand it!!!! GRRRRR!!!! :mad: :bang: :mad:

    Freesia not my business.

    :hug: :smitten: I also have an "overbearing" mother but I cant really talk about her because then people think I am the bad guy... etc.. the less I say about it the better anyway... I am constrained financially so things are as they are right now.

    Thinking of you, i hope you can find some way to get out of where you are and into somewhere better and safer.

    Just a half-hour ago, I was driving here & relishing how freakishly GORGEOUS it is outside today.... and as soon as I walked into this house my mood plummeted. No one's spoken a word. Ahhh, bliss.... :brood:
