so i'll just vent about my brothers gf now.

okay..so she's 19. he's 30. that's side eye #1. my brothers OOT, so i really don't see him much...and when they first started dating, he kept telling me she "wasn't giving up the milk till he buys the cow".......i admired her. i thought..."this 19yo is really is responsible and cares about her future....i'm okay with her". my brother repeatedly tells me that she's mature for her age because of this that and the other thing. all legitimate reasons. okay.

so.......after talking with her for a while yesterday, i learned 1) they are living together. 2) everybody knows this except me. 3) she has a dog that moved in with them. 4) ohmagod, her dad moved in with him too. 5) again. everybody knows this but me. 6) she moved in her turtles. 7) they're about to get another dog. 8) my brother, who could hardly afford plane tickets to come for my mothers birthday has bought her a DSLR, tiffany's jewelry, coach purses, a trip to disneyland, other stuff she doesn't need. 9) she does not act much older than 19...she could be a "mature" 19 yo, but she's definitely not in the mid 20 range that my brother has talked her up to be.

more more more more more.

/vent.

Re: so i'll just vent about my brothers gf now.

  • ugh, I'd be annoyed too.  Mostly because of the money thing and stuff you've mentioned before.
  • Indifferent

    huh. I don't even know what to say right now.

  • bonus is that she's on the prettier side rather than not pretty. i guess she's got that goin' for her. way hotter than my brother should be able to attract...so there's got to be something wrong with her.

    yeah having her dad move in too is a pretty amazing feat. perhaps she should teach classes? 

  • OMG, this is what my brother will be like in 5 years. Indifferent No joke.

  • That is crazy. And if this is just day one vent, I can't wait for the end of the trip vent!
  • 3 and 6 are good in my book -- i would be more skeptical of someone willing to give up their pets to move than someone who take responsibility for the animals they've committed to care for, but, the rest... yikes.

  • i'm sorry jennlin. your brother is acting like an idiot right now.. paying for a stupid 19yr old AND her dad? OMG! I'd be super irritated and probably wouldn't be able to bite my tongue!

    why does everyone know except you?

  • What?!

    Ugh. I'd seriously give my brother a tongue lashing. Who is he, her sugar daddy? And she's bringing what to the relationship... animals?

  • Ah, I totally get where you are coming from.  My lovely older brother (he's 33) has been married twice already and divorced.  His second wife was 18 when they started dating, he was 26, they got divorced 3 years ago.  He then dated a 20 year old about 2 years ago.  He does have a legal GF now but she is a total douchette. He's on house arrest right now because he got 3 dui's in less than 3 years. He did 3 months in Jail already.  I'd say his life choices have really made an impact in his life...dating immature women I believe was the start.  I hope your Brother doesn't end up like mine.  

    Now, I get asked, "Omg You're his YOUNGER sister".

  • It's hard to see someone you love involved in something that seems so bad for them.  I hope he sees the light soon and gets himself out of that situation.

    TTC #2 for a million years: SA normal, CD 23 bloodwork shows nothing amiss, ovulation detected. Next step: ? maybe CD3 bloodwork to check eggs? All out of pocket, so limited IF tests/treatments.

    while my brother has never been married, he is similar to your brother when it comes to the law. my brother is not exactly a catch considering his background in domestic violence.
