Re: Forum Jargon for Newbies

I'm new here.  4 days ago my husband of 25 years shared (finally) that he is gay.  There are no words to describe my state though i imagine others here know.  we told our 3 daughters saturday and now i do not know what to do.  he's still here in the house, in our bed and i feel angry, betrayed, devastated, terrified, confused.  i think i want him to leave sooner rather than later.  its too painful seeing him here yet knowing nothing is nor will ever be the same...

Hi jacki, 

Welcome!  I'm so sorry you are going through this.  You are likely in a state of shock.  We understand and hopefully we can help. 

Could you start a new thread of your own in the "support" forum section?
Click here:   http://straightspouse.boardhost.com/viewforum.php?id=3
then find the little box on the right that says  New Topic.  

This way we can get some dedicated conversation to support you.

Re: Forum Jargon for Newbies

I’m very proud that this post is still here. Pinned and viewed over 20,000 times I think. (Can’t see the number of views on my phone) I’m glad that it has been so helpful to newbies.

The post actually pre-dates 2016. It was brought over from the old forum (Voyforums?)

I have updated it a few times as I have seen new acronyms arise in the forum posts. If anything new should be on there please let me know.

I’ve kinda been expecting it to disappear because times change and some things in there might not be ‘PC’ any more.

Anyway… thanks and love to you all.


You have a future. A good one. It begins as a flicker of hope. Nurture it until it becomes a dream and when you are strong enough you will make it a reality. NEVER give up.

I am a tech worker and click through 'terms of service' agreements all the time. I don't pay attention to the fine print. 

That's a great post and am glad it's pinned. Thanks!!  Am also glad this forum board was kept. I read older posts a few times weekly. They give support when the board is slow moving.

BTW, Steve, you can see the number of views per thread on a phone by clicking the three horizontal bars on the upper left and choosing desktop view. It's not a default view - doesn't persist when you leave and return. I have an iPhone. Not sure if this works with Android or Microsoft-based cell phones.

This post has 23,374 views as of a minute ago.

Best,
Maria
