Hmmm...don't really know where to start...well, i guess i will start at the beginning. So here goes nothing!
I separated from my husband of 7 yrs (married for 4) because of issues which i will not discuss here, in July, and have recently began communicating with a guy.
This guy is extremely nice, can hold a decent conversation, is considerate, kind, has a great sense of humour, is good looking too, and actually treats me with respect. Although i have only been talking to him for 1 month...i can't say dating, cause i don't think that is what it is. At any rate, the reason why i need someone else's viewpoint, is because i am kinda confused.
This guy seems great so far right? lol....well, he is, the only thing is that he does not work, he is on a pension because of his diabetes and anxiety issues. Now, i really don't care that he has diabetes, because that can be controlled with diet and/or medication....same thing with the anxiety issue....heck...i think that we all have anxiety issues, just some people require medication and others do not. What seems to be bothering me a little bit, is that every time I mention to my friends and/or family about him not having employment, they are all like "drop him". Well, i do not agree with that rationale....but then again, they are my friends and family and are only looking after my best interests, which i do understand, but....geez, its annoying. I really like this guy and I would like to get to know him better, but i do not want my friends and family to have preconceived notions that he is a bum. He is not, he has his own income, and has worked in the past, just isn't working right now.
Arrrg! I usually know what to do most of the time, and what to say....but sometimes, as in this situation, i have no idea and that is why i need some help with this.
Any advice/opinions would be greatly appreciated!
It was funny, when i talked to my brother about this guy, he asked me what my ex husband thought of this...and i was like...who cares? He has nothing to do with my life anymore (ALOT of BS went on in that relationship....i have another thread explaining it...) and that i do not care whatsoever what my ex thinks. My brother is another one of those that thinks that i should run from this guy...(sigh)
Thank you for reading.
