This is a question Crappy relationships

"Recently," Broken Arrow tells us, "The missus informed me that her brother was moving with us." What has your partner done that's convinced you the magic's gone? "Breathe" is not an answer.

I've sworn off foreign women for the time being.
my last two relationships (I am US):

Woman from Beijing, an MBA, was supposed to be looking for a job in the US so I could follow her (I am a journalist, so she'd make more money). Turns out that instead of looking for work, she spent all her time online searching for proof that I was cheating and not actually working 50+ hours a week and nights.

So we're fighting, and she begins an actual business presentation of what's wrong with our relationship (me) by showing me online ads without photos that she thought could be me. One guy was 15 years younger and lived an hour west of Chicago, whereas I lived a half hour east -- and he was looking for local girls. She also used a calculator to show me that the weekends we spent together didn't add up to the actual six months we'd been dating.

I walked out before she got to any Powerpoint presentations. She did, however, stalk me later when I was dating:

The Welsh woman now known among my friends as the English Mental Patient (she'd been court ordered by the divorce court she was going through in Chicago to get psychiatric help -- before and after I was with her -- for a suicide attempt on the eve of the divorce and then her attitude after I left).

I knew it was over when I unexpectedly showed to her apartment after she got off work, and she didn't answer the doorbell, then when I phoned her, it took her 15 minutes to come to the door and get me. She usually just buzzed me up.

Oh, and she was leaving on a day trip the next day with a singing group to Wisconsin, but she didn't want me to meet them and the only man with them didn't show while I dropped her off and was waiting a bit to make sure she was safe.

On the brighter side, a woman asked me to a play tonight. She's a US citizen of Swedish extraction named Olga. And she's a nurse.

Those Swedes
are fucking crazy dude......nah i'm kidding, they do have a rep for being sexualy liberated though, so have fun.

One thing that I did pick up on was the English mental patient bit, maybe this is what made her crazy, the Welsh hate the English (well some do). We are not taking credit for this loopnut ;D

She was 1/2 and 1/2 -- mom was half English and half Polish, and dad was Welsh but living in England. I put Welsh here as I knew what the reaction would be, but she identified herself as English.

Actually, her mom was quite fit but on her second husband. Mom was 13 years older than me and said girl was 13 years younger (30 at the time). I think I made the wrong choice.

I guess she probably doesn't know a whole lot about Wales then, we'll accept her begrudgingly ;)

Olga's ex bf recommended her to me
Seems he wanted to settle down, but she didn't after two failed marriages.

He said I should go out with her as she's fun and he's cool about it.

Date went well
Though I'd do a follow up on Olga:

She paid as she asked me out. Got a few kisses. She wants to see me again.

She paid :O I thought that was un-heard of in the US
You got a good one there dude!! Although I guess your being paying for the next one.....No pressure on you, as she doesn't want to settle down.....Sounds perfect!
