Woman speaks onstage - logo for BPWClinton was Breaking Barriers with Jacqueline Graham at the end of August about equal payday and how BPW Australia are helping to empower professional women. The impact of the COVID-19 crisis as seen this year’s pay gap show a greater disparity between men and women. Every industry in Australia has a full time pay gap favouring full-time working men, even in female dominated industries such as health care and social assistance.

“Gender equality and gender diversity at work is not just nice to have. Gender equity is a basic human right, but its achievement also brings socio-economic benefits to everyone. In a global pandemic, now more than ever we must not risk the gain’s women have made. Empowering women increases productivity and growth and the broader community thrives” Jacqueline Graham, BPW Australia President said.

    I generally dont have problems keeping contact or finding something to share with you. on the other hand, As someone else pointed out i tend to back down a bit in communications once i feel things are established. just up until weve met. the scientific explanation for this i have spent weeks chatting to people only to them vanish or if we meet things dont click. So now i just wasted a lot of time. While i know dating is time intensive i want to try an minimize this to an extent. Second ive noticed the more you communicate the less incentive your partner has to meet you. Although having said all this when things change maybe it’s a potential sign of losing interest. Its actually hard to pinpoint. Sometimes you gotta ride things slightly to find out.

    normally when you text you lose that context. Two Xs ago she was a mother of 3 and worked in the medical field 12 hour shifts. So i didnt want to feel like i was intruding or covering up. So i would distance my contact w her. One day she said oh this is actually Mon so your usual 2 day gap. Although i was on the htc desire w her since we are both in our 40s so i could tell by her voice how she was coming off. This is when i told her i ddint know w your busy schedule if you wanted to communicate more frequently. So we got that squared away.

    I dont think right now this will be a red flag. more like a yellow flag. lousy be just more direct. I have a acquaintance like this ( early OLDate) That is a lot like this an it took me a bit too get used to it. Although i did talk to her about being extra tactful. It something shes done anything about. When she is texting you are you at work or are you at home? for anybody home i would kind of be annoyed to if someone did this. Although it could possibly be too soon to say anything.

    How long was the long term relationship and how long has shes been single. Its for sure any red flag. I dated someone who was 6 mos out a 20 year plus relationship. I was very unlikely to date this woman when i found this out. She secured me that she was over it. She actually filed for divorce about 2 1/2 years prior to use meeting. Then they got together again for a few months an she realized it was a huge mistake. this was her angle. nonetheless, Filing for divorce and actually have it official is two different things. The first 3 or 4 mos thins were ok but i could tell there have been signs that she wasnt over it or ready to date. When the divorce went through things got much harder. I had to deal w her baggage at all. i had “punished” For things her boyfriend did. Or she would always compare. She started making excuses not to gathering. We dated approximately 14 mos before i broke things off. She admitted that she was not ready to date and we must of done afroromance casual. Which is what i suggested from the start. It was mess chasing someone who was emotionally unavailable.

    People are going to disagree or down vote this but mostly you are right. My last GF was decently stylish. She oozed personality an it showed just about after 60 seconds of meeting her. I met her using OLD but it was totally by luck. She was a first timer and she had by chance had logged on to disable her OLD when i messaged her. I know not to ask this but i thought about it what she was doing on OLD. She asked me when we first met that lot of guys asked her exactly the same. I told her because normally lot of people on OLD tend to have issues. so here was a sparkly, Younger,Fairly attractive an on first glance to good really was. So lot of guys first reckoned is why is she using OLD whats wrong w her. typically problems started arising fairly soon. While i wouldnt say she was crazy in that sense she was a bit premature, Had path, Bounced/moved around a lot, Tended to be automatically impulsive but in a mostly bad or questionable way, A bit arduous at times. Her reason for using OLD is usually that the town she lived in was mostly middle age divorced dads ( Im middle age myself) With many kids.

    around the, I would say this she absolutely did NOT need online dating sites to meet guys. She tended to get noticed out IRL an was often broached even when i was with her an wasnt looking. As i said qualities wise she had in spades an sparkles surrounded her. Although she had other inherent issues i pointed out earlier. I wonder what most of these women at first glance are using OLD unless there will be something inherently wrong w them maybe not mentally per say. Although issues or stuff coming about. Then thats when they will turn to OLD. Lot of times they are too busy or use that as an excuse to use OLD. Although then i wonder if they are that busy they probably busy to actually date. Another reason is they have too many standards and expectations so they have to turn to OLD. my previous GF to her i met on Craigslist. She was approaching middle age at the time but was relatively younger looking a pleasant. unluckily she was in that crazy an recently out of a abusive marriage ( Also abused since a child) Category you reported. She had tons of mental issues it lasted a bit more than a year an i had to walk away. As far as my recent GF her bouncing around and spontaneous volatile behavior caught up to us. She would up aligning herself w a sketchy woman she met thought we would move in w her an now this lady is running her life which led to our eventual breakup. There is a ton of emotional stuff you will suffer from. You are likely organization in for a very tough ride! Also these women are inclined to go back to their abusive Xs. You may also have to handle him as well because these type of guys dont like to them go easily either. Lot of these women tend to be forever have emotional and mental issues through the abusive relationship. Some do recover with proper therapy but a majority of dont. Also if you are the first guy that dates them you have to put up with the brunt of this. You also essentially tuning them up for the following guy. Thats if she recovers enough to possibly get into a decent enough love.

    E has a problem with what I’m doing, It feels like i’m being parented and would like to rebel.

    Ha now an individual kind scaring me lol. She told me this same last week. She felt each and every i tried to stop her or in her words” tame her” She wanting to do it more. alternatively she told me that she needed someone to keep her more grounded. Then when i didnt care that are going to upset her to. So what i was assume to do here? One thing she would say is that i know myself but she never would expand on that. I think it meant that she would be getting into or have the potential to get into more stuff i wasnt around.

    Yea her folks were fairly strict. She also attended some boarding school. Which i would maybe understand if she was in her 20s wishing to let go a bit. albeit when we met she was turning 33. from the accused 34. She also has a baby but she stays w her uncle. Kinda long actual story.

    She moved all around. when i met 2 mos later she moved. Then 3 mos and then she moved again. Then 6 7 mos later she settled again. She aligned herself w this sketchy woman. It eventually led to our split up late Nov/Early Dec. We still talk but if i can ever figure out whats wrong w her i reveal.

    I think her been w her me pulled her down a notch. In certain techniques i kind of had a feeling thats what she wanted. She even told me repeatedly if we werent together it would be worse. but bear in mind, It wasnt easy especially at first to i dunno contain her desires to do these materials. I wouldnt say im anti social but im not one of social person. I can go to events an handle myself okay. She was even stunned because she thought at first i was anti social. I just prefer not to at least usually lol.

    She would say if i got her pregnant then she would decline. I just had serious doubts that she would be able to contain this. Her sprakliness/bubbly was both a double edge sword. As she tended build awareness sometimes unwanted an sometimes more “Party persons, Which meant more potential stuff for her to obtain and headaches. I also think understand right i had asked her if this wildness would disappear she said shes not sure maybe or maybe not. Did you also navigate around a bunch? It seems like w her previous stories shes told me shes never stayed in one place in excess of 2 years.
