Re: Married/Partner EF Members?

I'm one half of an EF married couple. We met at Wednesday night drinks at Talacker. We now have an 18month old. My other half isn't active on here any more though. I know of at least another couple of married/almost married EF couples with EF babies.

Re: Married/Partner EF Members?

I think identifying people online is not a thing really done...it's not like they are really secretive, but everyone wants to have their space, so I wouldn't go after members and try to indetify, let them come out with their info should they want to share.

Another thing is, it's easy to keep one's playground nice and presentable when one does not have a partner here, you can pretend whatever you want and have your little private world. I know a few who specifically asked their partner not to join to keep things safely neat.

Isn't always easy, one does not talk about anything else at home at times, like lolcats, funky stuff, hahaha. Brave, aren't we...no preferential treatment, though, surely not, just in case anyone's worried.

Now, the mod hat, I had it somewhere didn't I, where is it...

At the other extreme I think some nosyperceptive people on here yes swissotter I'm looking at you realized that Mr. MathNut and I were a proper couple almost before we did ourselves. (And we thought we were being so exquisitely discreet! I'd make a terrible sleb, I would. )
Honestly i didn't know a thing! I just happened to be in the right place at the right time (and so did you two )

I think your other half pretty much identified himself very recently - before then i was oblivious

I get nervous when I see my other half browsing EF, but then it reminds me I have to think before i type

It's funny as I don't care what my OH sees in my posts. Mind you, that's lucky I suppose seeing as he's rarely logged out

I have to be careful how often I comment on what a wonderful mother in law I have
