    No offence..... but your DH is not so dear. Remembering back he treats you appallingly. Tell him to STFU and that social networking is extremely common, especially for women. Maybe if he was a better husband you wouldn't have to come here to vent about his crappy behaviour.

    Hope I haven't offended but you deserve more. If this post was in isolation I'd probably have a chuckle at him, but knowing the history.... he's a tool. Sorry

    Hubby does care. He treats my bub hub friends like my in real life friends. Some of them are what I consider in real life friend even though we have never actually met. My kids do too. Just the other day my kids saw something and made the remark that @Zombieeyes could make a better cake than that.

    Mine used to pay me out about BH and candy crush and pet saga... now he plays pet saga and candy crush so pfffft to him!

    To address your questions no it's not lame. My DH knows I'm here and obviously knows I've met several wonderful women from this site IRL. Not once has he teased or made a negative comment. He sees I'm an extrovert person, my IRL friends have moved/we've had fall outs and I need the interaction.

    Better for you to have an online community than no one.

    My DH is used to me partaking in forums now, it's my friends that think it's weird. One friend thinks it's hilarious that I'm in a DIG on fb. I don't see how it's strange at all! You have kids, there is no manual on how to raise them, so you come to a forum for advice.

    When my DH and I first met 11 year ago we were both part of a car forum. So he doesnt make fun of me. I've met some of my best friends through forums.

    When someone makes fun of someone else, it says more about their own insecurities than it does about you, dont let him put his issues on you xo

    I don't think there is anything strange at all about coming onto a forum to vent, ask advice, celebrate achievements (however small) and connect with other parents.

    This particular forum is a wealth of previous experience and knowledge... If you have a problem, chances are that someone here has walked the path before and can help you. Just because support comes from online doesn't mean it isn't extremely valuable.

    I don't think your DH should be judging you for being involved in an online community that (generally) supportive, active and social.

    I think your DH gets a kick out of prodding at your insecurities, and you would be a lot happier to keep in mind that that's what he's trying to do and not letting him notice when he's bruised your heart. He clearly feels very poorly about himself and can only function well when he can make you feel worse than he does. So I say brush it off, smile wide and let him be a grumpy old man while you enjoy life :-)

    I bh via my phone and dh doesn't butt into my phone life. I also don't tell him anything about bh apart from that I chat with other mums on a parenting forum. Some things men just don't get...it's best for me to keep the two apart.
