gimmepretty :  I agree, mo matter how rational and sympathetically worded the advice is, it won’t be followed. But I still give it, because even if people don’t want to follow it, I think they are encouraged by knowing someone is listening. Otherwise she would have stopped posting the first time one of her questions devolved into 30 different posters telling her to run, not walk, away.

 

I don’t think it’s fiction either. That would be quite the long con. This posting history goes back years. And there’s plenty of non relationship posts as well.

glitterati :  I agree with you. Maybe not 100% of it but at least partially.

I just cannot understand why she stays with this fiance even though he’s basically brought him nothing but misery. Am I just older now and have no tolerance for such BS?

None of us understand.  Maybe he’s really good in bed.  Or, I heard he cooks.  Maybe his cooking is good in bed.

gimmepretty :  Don’t they go out to eat often (despite Penny’s purported food allergies)? That seems inconsistent with him being a good cook. Or at least that being the reason behind her frustrating decision to stay with him and subsidize his lifestyle.

We’ll, I don’t know how seriously any of this is worth considering.  But she definitely mentioned him cooking in the past, but doesn’t clean up afterwards, so eating out or takeout is easier.  But maybe, upon occasion, quality makes up for quantity.  I mean, if we’re looking for a reason…

But I see no dispute for the good in bed theory.  Maybe that’s it.

As long as there are people out there who consider being in a toxic relationship better than being in no relationship, assholes like Penny’s fiance will be able to find partners. This is not, sadly, a unique situation.

We’ll, yes, if we’re being serious, this exactly the reason.  She goes from bad relationship to bad relationship.  A bad relationship is better than being alone in her book.  And it’s the same for many.

Tatum :  to be fair, from what I’ve read on here, Penny shows the same level of distain towards children that aren’t her own. They seem a pigeon pair when it comes to other peoples children. 

I feel sorry for her children. Penny chooses her situations and by this point she is complicit in her situation. She’s gotten some pretty sound advice here and has chosen to ignore it. Her situation is one by this point that she’s chosen. Whatever happens to her is the outcome of her own poor decision making. Her kids however have not had a choice to live like this. I see many years of therapy ahead for her children trying to undo the damaging behaviour they likely learnt.

Penny, for the sake of your children….WALK AWAY and model to them that you value yourself enough and are enough without a man. Do it especially for your daughter so that she knows her worth and is comfortable enough to walk away from a relationship that isn’t right as opposed to sit in silence suffering because she thinks as a women that is her duty to tolerate bullshit from a partner because being alone is a far worse state.

True…but at least Penny isn’t the one picking a partner with children. She keeps her disdain focused on the kids that ruin her fancy restaurant experiences by existing, not her supposed future stepkids.

 

To all your other points, I agree.
