Yeah, that makes sense. You are 33. Technically you would be a millennial, right?
Yes, I am *technically* a Millennial, but don't call me one. I hate Millennials.
I actually think they get a bad rap. But different topic.
But you didn't grow up in the United States, right?
Not early childhood, but from age 10 on.
Ah!!! Got it.
Then studied abroad, then came back, and now I'm planning to move away for good. Even if Trump loses the election, this country is completely lost.
We have some serious issues. But we ignored them for a long, long time. I agree that the near term will not be pretty. And if you want to get out, that's cool. But now I know that this was going to be inevitable. We will either begin some negotiation to split up or we will resolve this. I think everyone knows we can't continue like this.
Yeah, agreed. I mean, I was planning to get out for a long time now but always prolonged it. But now with everything that happened in these past few years and especially this year, I see nothing left here for me. And I'm aware of how privileged I am for even having this option. The vast majority of people suffering in the US, have nowhere to go.What is your hope for these next few years in the US?
But what about your parents?
One was in prison and the other I didn't like growing up. She was a single mom with four children at a young age. So she was really harsh and abusive sometimes. She really needed therapy to work through her own issues. And I didn't like my sisters too much either. They didn't claim me and even bullied me to some degree. I think I only liked one sibling at the time, but she was the oldest and always gone. So I didn't have anyone till way later in life.
Ah, I understand. Thank you for sharing that. I did not mean to pry.
You're good, I was open to sharing.😊 Good luck with your question, hope you get some great answers! Take care.
Wow. . . that is amazing. Thanks!

Really? What kind of relationship do you have with your parents?
I had a great one, but nothing too emotional. I lived in a pretty loud and emotional household, my parents had expectations from me, and I tried my best not to disappoint them.
Really? You are American? And your parents? They were not like close friends, especially as you got older?
Yeah, British and sure my father is well since the divorce but before then not really
What role did your parents play?
i don't think they played any role in that
Hmmm. that is interesting.Are you American?
Yeah, but that sounds right.
What about your parents?
I guess I bonded with my Mom more so than my Dad.
Would you ever refer to her by her first name?
No, that'd be weird
You had the same boyfriend throughout your childhood and high school?
We grew up together from 5 years old. At college he left me for some bimbo.
And through this entire time, what did your parents think? What role did they play?
At first they thought it was cute but eventually as you know hormones change, bodies develop certain rules were put in place that weren't in place before. I dont ever remember a point when we started dating but we just sort fell into it.
Well, you are 35. So that makes sense.
I mean my age from back then, LOL
That's what I meant also.
Okay then:) Unfortunately I can't possibly see the logic of your first phrase then but nvm.
What do you mean by not being able to see the "logic"?
Exactly what I said. When I now look at the phrase "Well, you are 35. So that makes sense." and am trying to understand it like "so, you had a friend who was slightly younger than you was back then" (the meaning that is implied by your "That's what I meant also.") I repeatedly fail at it.
Why don't you watch the thread?You might start to see a "trend".
It might happen indeed. Mind that I didn't say there is no logic. Only that I am not able to see it. And these two things are not the same...
