Any Only Children out there who cannot tolerate SO/DH's siblings?
I am an only child with no desire to ever have children and the longest healthy relationship I have had is with my horses. I traveled extensively for 10 years which significantly impacted my human relationship prospects and my life is so dominated by horses that it is no surprise I have a terrible track record with men. I think my man "picker" is broken to boot. If only I "vetted" my men as extensively as I do my OTTB's and was as critical about their temperaments...but that of course would lead to being too picky to ever find a man to "live up" to my impossibly high standards (only about 1 in 100 OTTB's make the cut and attempting to.form a connection with even 50 men (more than double the # I've tried) would be the death of me of anyway). So anyway, my current SO and business partner is one of six children and my experience in our 3 year relationship has led me to despise his siblings and dread associating closely or pursuing a relationship wth anyone with siblings. They are over at the house all the tim, sleeping here, eating our food, trash the house, and generally invading my space which I am apparently very territorial of. His friends are much the same and about a year into our relationship, two of his friends with their two big, loud dogs moved in and stayed for almost SIX MONTHS. My friends and I began to refer to them as the squatters. He even went off on me when I objected to his suggestion that his degenerate dungeons and dragons playing lazy cousin should stay at the farm during a weekend we were out of town. When he brothers are over, his annoying habits and vices are magnified ten fold and he is even disrespectful to me at times. I am not seeking relationship advice but merely curious if all men with siblings are like this? Miraculously, I have only ever really been seriously involved with only children before. Thank you for your input!
