  1. I have a bit of a strange request. I am currently in an LDR with someone who used to engage in casual sex and FWB. He's completely loyal and devoted to me and obviously gave all of that up once we got into a relationship. Personally I have very little sexual experience because I always figured it is something to be shared with someone special. And while I'm sure that I must have met people in my life who have engaged in casual sex, I've never met anyone who's admitted to it so it is a very 'out there' idea for me. I've never understood how someone as sweet and caring as him could do somet
  2. Thank you to everyone who has replied so far. Reading about similar experiences helps, because I don't know anyone in real life who has struggled with the same thing. It also gives me hope that I will slowly adjust. More stories are always welcome! Working from home is possible at this company, but not on a consistent (i.e. every Wednesday or something) basis. People can request to be allowed to work from home on a specific day. However, my boss made it clear that since I have a lot to learn, it won't be an option for awhile yet.
  3. Due to circumstances I was lucky enough to be able to work from home 4 days out of 5 for about a year and a half. On top of that, although it was a full time job, I had a very light workload. A lot of the time I was able to just idly browse the web or walk around the house doing random stuff. I eventually lost that job due to downsizing, and have been at a new workplace for nearly 2 months. I've really been struggling with getting into that routine again. Getting up early, driving to work, staying for 9 hours and driving back, with only a few hours left for free time. I don't dislike the jo
  4. Thank you all for your replies! It's great to get some insight in how other people feel about it. I want a relationship, but am not too fussed over it if I am single for a few more years. So that could indeed be part of the problem. I indeed had not met any of them in person because I felt like it would be best to have a phone call first and see how that goes. I've read once or twice that if you don't feel good about that initial phone conversation, it likely wouldn't get any better. But I believe there is some truth to your words about meeting up in real life. Guess I just need to
  5. I'm 26 years old and for awhile now I've had the feeling that the only thing missing in my life is a boyfriend. I am perfectly happy with my life as it is, but I don't want to grow old alone, and I do miss the feeling of being in love. I'm pretty shy and most of my hobbies involve either staying at home or visiting friends to do stay-at-home stuff (watching movies, playing video games), so I figured the best way to go would be online dating. I've joined a dating site, and get quite a few messages. After filtering out the usual stuff (first message being how sexy I am, having very little in
  6. Thanks to both of you for your elaborate replies. I already feel a bit better. I've always worried to a certain extent, it's just gotten a bit worse. It's starting to interfere with my life, in the sense that I am so anxious about having to socialise more that I end up not doing it. Especially since my closest colleague is not very tactful when I'm doing something not quite the way she'd like. My boss is a lot nicer and was careful to also mention the things I am doing well. In any case I'll be doing my best again on Monday! happybear - you could be right that I do have a lot of negative
  7. Hi Mylor, thanks for replying. I'm 25 years old. I've been at this job for nearly six months now. About needing the money, I honestly don't have any rational reason for it. It's not like my parents are poor or anything. It seems like some sort of irrational fear.
  8. Lately I've been worrying like crazy over every single aspect of my life, to the point that I wake up crying because I want it all to be different. I'm constantly thinking about it and I can feel my heart racing, even though objectively thinking there's hardly a disaster going on. I'm not sure how to handle this? A summary: - I've got a new job after going through a layoff at a job I really loved and it's not really what I'd hoped. I don't really click with anyone and my boss (and closest colleague) have complained because I don't take enough initiative and don't talk to people face-to-f
  9. Hi trust101, I think I only clung to a memory for the 1.5 year that I didn't see him or talk to him. Since I was only feeling more horrible as time went on I got back in touch and I speak to him very often now. For example, we sometimes sit in my car on a parking lot talking for hours till late at night. We've also been on a few citytrips together and will be doing so again soon. So yes, I guess I didn't tell the whole story. Mostly because I know people will tell me to go NC. But I have been in NC for way longer than most people on this website and it did nothing for me, so I'm not going down
  10. Hi everyone, thanks for all the replies, I appreciate hearing others' opinions. As I briefly mentioned I was in NC with him for about a year to a year and a half. I didn't say a single word to him through any medium at all (be it face to face, e-mail, text... whatever). I also didn't look at anything that would remind me of him, since I knew this was considered the best way to deal with a breakup. In the meantime I did pick up a new hobby or two. So I think I can say that I've done things to try and help myself. But even then I couldn't stop thinking of him for even an hour. I'd be on th
  11. Hi all, It's been three and a half years after my brief first (and so far only) relationship which lasted a few months. I don't really know what to do. I only stopped crying several times a day once I ended NC, which was well over a year into the breakup. I was only crying more as time went on, even though I hadn't spoken to him in ages. My posts from back in the day are probably still around on this website. Lately I've started crying more often again, because I'm seeing him less than I used to. It's affecting my work as well, because I am just sitting around staring at nothing in pa
