because it gives me more things to worry about

I say its good to talk about hypothetical situations
he thinks it makes me worry about things that won't happen

BTW this is light hearted

I keep my mnetting private from dh.

I'm not on as much since I've started a new job but I wouldn't dream of talking to him about anything I comment on or read about.

its interesting hearing other peoples views

thank you

with the relationship ones I guess it shows you can never really trust someone, I have big trust issues anyway

Yanbu unless it really is affecting you
Badly in RL.
Saying that relationship boards are real people with real problems and if you didn't feel anything after reading them then that's isn't normal either..

My dp has always been a bit threatened by me using mumsnet though he doesn't say anything as much as he used to.
I spend a lot of time here a do need to cut back.
Always used to ask me if I talked about him or our relationship(I don't)
And frankly there it's anything interesting/problems to talk about.
I think he also holds the view that we are a tonne of bitching about men feminist's,he gets hmm at any suggestion of that.

I always share the classics with him.

Just realised you wernt talking about RLship boards.
As you were.

He says nothing. He wouldn't dare smile

DP thought I was very weird when I first signed up as we have no children.

He's changed his tune though. MN has been invaluable in getting us through the first few months taking on his much younger sister.

I don't post much at all, but find the teen boards a great source of comfort and inspiration when I'm completely lost.

Now you'll often find us both hunched over the laptop trying to work out wtf to do with this bundle of teenage angst we now live with! grin

I completely agree with what Maryz said.

*Is it making you worry?

Because tbh I'm quite glad mn wasn't here when ds1 was little, because some of the threads on here are very judgemental and/or dismissive, and I think I might have got my knickers in quite a twist desperately trying and failing to do everything right.

Mumsnet is fantastic resource if you can take the good bits and ignore some of the angst. If you can't, and it is making you worry unnecessarily, then he might have a point. *

I hide the RL board. It is such a catalogue of horrors it makes you feel like it is a matter of time before it happens to you!
