Dear dating dating someone 12 years older
It may be a relief to you to learn that donating used clothing (even in excellent condition) may not be as useful as the average would-be do-gooder thinks it is.
That’s not to say you should throw your kids’ old clothes in the trash, but there’s a national surplus of donated clothing, and many donation centers, from Goodwill to your local secondhand shop, receive more clothing than they can sell or even give away.
If I do donate to the pregnancy center, how can I avoid becoming enraged whenever I go there?

As a result, they’ve come to think of and refer to me as gay.
Your reasons are sound, I think—or at the very least worth considering—but you’re getting a little ahead of yourself.
Dear Prudence, I live in a small and highly religious town.
I’m not even sure if this is a reasonable thing to do, and I don’t want to offend him or make him think I’m greedy. I don’t even know if it’s common among married couples for one partner to pay off the other’s student debt!
That always seemed fairly close to the mark, so it didn’t feel like a big deal.
However, I recently (and unexpectedly) found myself interested in a woman, and it made me stop and think about how I’m perceived here.
I don’t want him to resent me down the line, nor do I want him to feel like I’m a freeloader.
But I could contribute more to our future household the sooner my debt is paid off—not to mention the added benefits of paying less in interest fees overall, better interest rates for things like mortgages, and better credit scores. And are there pros or cons that I’m not considering?
