    Q: What does "I'm at the end of my rope" mean?

    A: It means the person is out of options and doesn't know what to do.

    Example:
    • I'm at the end of my rope. I don't know what to do. The bills are coming due, and I don't know how I'm going to pay them.

    Could you please give some more examples of Jane Doe/John Doe?


    How do you like my example?

    • Speaker A: Who's the next?
      Speaker B: It's another Jane Doe.


    :)

    Um, that would be Who's next? You don't use the in front of next when it is used as a noun. :)

    A Jane Doe is somebody who can't identify herself or has no identification on her. Where might you be if somebody is being referred to as a Jane Doe?

    :)

    I would understand that it's just another guy/girl -- you don't even bother to name him/her.

    Ron got married last year, but he's seeing Cas now, and he had a candlelit dinner with Susan. Today he is with me. 8)

    Is there a proverb to describe this triangle?

    How about "You can't dance at two weddings" "to keep a foot in both camps " "to have it both ways" :wink:
