About Me

  1. Hello folks, I probably already know the answer to the question I am about to ask, but will give it a chance Not a big fan of online dating, but after moving to a new town I gave Tinder a chance and met one girl. Started chatted on instagram and things seemed to go well but then her replies became seldom. Once, she wrote an apology saying that can’t write frequently because of her job. It was understandable, untill it took her whole day to reply vaguely to my messages. I told her, that I respect her job and her time, but if she did not find our conversation interesting, we’d go seperate way
  2. My ex and I had been together for 10 months now. Early, he used to spend time with me, we used to talk often, laugh, have fun. He made me his world. After 4 months or so he started getting distant and stopped spending time with me. When I confronted him, he said that he thought I was using him and that his sister said I was using my past as a way to gain sympathy and love ( I had been through an abusive relationship a couple of years ago) He added he didn't fall for all that but due to cultural and religious differences he thought this was the best excuse to push me away. Drama happened w
  3. I’ve not been very good at journaling this year! I’ve been dating someone for almost a year - we met last December. I do wonder if we’ll make it into the new year due to a few issues. He’s a single dad, first one I’ve ever dated, and I’ve spent a bit of time with his son but he has behavioural issues at home so not sure how I would handle this if I become step-mum. There’s also the topic of if I want my own child - I’m still not made up and honestly I don’t think he wants another one. He (my boyfriend) is currently living with his dad saving money and helping out (dad is registered disab
  4. Why do some guys wait for you to initiate, make plans or even text first? I have been on 3 dates in the past month and it's the same rigomor each time. Connections are really good, lots of talking, smiling and even an offer to hang out again, but no date set. They sit back and wait for you to get in touch & offer to meet up again. In 2 cases the guys sounded super enthused & the dates go great. But I do all the leading. Isn't that the man's job?
  5. I'm not sure if I'm feeling sensitive at the moment because I'm fighting with a friend and maybe over reacting....I met a guy on a dating app. We talked on one app first but he deleted his profile. Then we matched on another app and exchanged phone numbers. He said he wanted to talk on the phone but there is some kind of really bad issue with my phone provider. It's been going on for over a year and started right when COVID started. So not sure if it's related. Basically people usually can't hear me on a phone call, but texting and calling through the Internet is totally fine. I explained this
  6. Bit of a weird question. So two weeks ago I went to this speed dating event. I'm bisexual so it was a GLBTIQ + event. There were a lot of people there. The host said they would E-mail everyone in four days' time to let them know if they got matches from the speed dating. I ticked off probably at least ten people or so. After the four days I kept checking my E-mail and junk mail thoroughly every day. I never received an E-mail at all, I even did a search on my E-mails. Two weeks later I asked one of my friends who was also there and they got an E-mail from the speed dating organiser and go
  7. Hi all. This is my dating journal! So by way of quick introductions, I'm male, mid 30's and (obviously) single! My relationship history is fairly limited – I had a 3 year relationship in my early 20's with a girl who I liked but, with hindsight, I was never in love with. It was simply my first relationship and I knew no better at the time. Since then, the longest I've seen anyone for is 5-6 months, which has happened twice – the first when I was 25 and the second when I was 33. Both these girls, I had crazy strong feelings for that unfortunately weren't fully reciprocated and both ended
  8. Hi all if you’ve read my last post a couple of months ago I was concerned about the relationship my boyfriends family has with his ex girlfriend. We are now 11 months into our relationship and I have still yet to meet the family. I’ve met all of his close friends though. Recently I brought it up to him again. He said i haven’t met them yet because I’m his last relationship, he felt his ex was too close to them and used to tell them things about their relationship. He said it bothered him that she would reach out to them even after they have broken up. I’m like ok but I’m not your ex! I asked w
  9. Hello guys, this is my first post ever but I just don’t know what to do. Maybe someone here can help me. I’m in my early 20s and my life has been a little messy the past years so this will be long (sorry!) My ex broke up with me almost two years ago. The relationship was very toxic and after the breakup I hit rock bottom. Until this day I’m still struggling with my mental health because the event triggered a lot of other issues too. My ex didn’t tell me why he left but he is still reaching out to me and sending me flowers. Which to me is insane and stupid. but my real prob
  10. Hey Everyone...thanks for reading my post... Haven't been on here in a few months..Some of you might remember me.. Ok..here goes.... I met this girl 2 weeks ago and we have been on 3 dates so far...Each date has been great....we got along emotionally and physically extremely well. The first date we both knew we were physically attracted to each other in the fact that we had alot of touching and such and ended up making out for a long time and chatted for hours. The second date was the same...had a few drinks, ate some good food and enjoyed each other's company and by the end of the night w
  11. Figured I'd give the diary thing a go. Knowing that I can always move this to the private diary forum if need be, hehe. More to come soon...
  12. Im soo confused, i dont know what to think or do. He was a friend of mine for 8 years although i didnt know him that well, hes been married 13 years and has 2 kids, im married also with kids. One night we were out and he kissed me, things moved fast, i knew his wife hit him and also cheated on him with her ex.. we talked alot, we fell in love, this carried on a year, but the year was hard even though he said he loves me i felt i always come last, obviously i understand he has a family but certain things and times my feelings didnt matter, we decided we would leave to be together, i saved
  13. Hi. This is a slightly unusual post in that I'm not asking for advice on a particular dating situation but more on my general mindset. In more than one dating situation in the last couple of years, I've begun dating a woman (I'm male, straight, 35 by the way), I've become attached before she's then displayed really unpleasant behaviour (i.e. obvious dealbreakers). But I really struggle to emotionally let go. I struggle to let the reality of her behaviour and actions take precedence over the emotional connection I've built up, and even after they've behaved in such a way, I still yearn for th
  14. Hey everyone! So about a month or so ago I went to a Meetup.com singles event. This guy clearly seemed into me because he kept talking to me and gave me his business card. He's originally from Asia but he came to Australia with his family when he was only ten years old. I'd mentioned to him it was my Birthday in a few days. I considered messaging him myself but around my Birthday he messaged me through Meetup and said: "Happy Birthday!" I was a bit unsure whether I'm attracted to his face but I'm not a shallow person hardly at all and the most important thing for me is who someone is on the in
  15. Hi all, I'm confused I'll tell you my story: I (29) met a nice guy (33), polite, gentle, funny intelligent. We texted a lot and went out two times. We stayed outside because of Corona. He initiated everything, he pursued me and showed real interest (it was not toxic lovebombing). The following conversation was texting only: He asked me on a third date but because of the lockdown situation here, he invited me over to his place. He said it's just because of the lockdown, he would normally never ask this so early. I said it sounds so good, but I can not come to his place this early
  16. I thought I would give a go at this journaling thing. My friends do not partake in online dating and I don't really get feedback from anyone that does. Mostly my friends shake their heads and ask `why?' I've been out of a relationship since May '14 and without rehashing all that has transpired I will say that online dating has changed considerably in the past 3 years. I've taken several breaks, mostly after meeting men looking for casual sex and men who are too afraid to put themselves out there and seem to put me in the drivers seat to pursue them and breath life into the situation.
  17. I have been with this dude for a little over a year now. I have given my all to him. I help him when he is in need. There through thick and thin. I recently found out that he has a profile on tagged. I know that this site is mainly used for dating and hookups. He told me that he only uses for flipping diamonds for money (which is something you can actually do). He says he doesn't use it for the dating side. He actually told me he had one because he found out that there was some fake profiles of him on there and he wanted them gone. He told me that he really had a real profile on there. He wan
  18. I ve just got a vibrator form my boyfriend (we have been dating for 6 months) I felt strange, since I wished for a more romantic gift... I ve never even used a vibrator before.... I am curious why the hell would a guy buy a vibrator for his girlfriend??? I always had the feeling that he is just after sex in this relationship, but now this present somehow "insulted" me... I don t know what to think... Plus this is his first present for me... What do you think guys? Would you buy such thing to someone you real care about??? As a first gift? Thanks!
  19. So me and this guy have been Friends for over a year now and during that year we have developed feelings for each other however we both live in separate countries and due to covid We have not been able to see each other for a year now. But we do discuss with each other the persons who we are dating and give advice to each other. however our friendship begin to get deeper on and we develops feelings for each other however we never discussed moving forward with it but we knew it. How ever recently it's been this girl that he is travelling to see He told me that they went on a trip an
  20. It seemed that we had a great connection and everything went good without pressure. After that incident, he didn’t return my calls or my texts, I told him that I just want to know why is he ignoring me in my last message and that I don’t blame him for this reaction but I want to know the reason. The fact is that he read all my messages and it seemed that he didn’t block me, it’s kind of strange, I just wanted to know the reason for his action in the end.
  21. Sup y'all! In advance: Sorry for that giant wall of text that will follow 😅 (if in wrong Forum Area or any other issues, feel free to delete) Short backstory to me: im 25 and im a huuuuge introvert. I only noticed the Pandemic when the people around me slowly started to go nuts a month in or so, i can literally be alone in my appartment for 2 weeks without feeling lonely or bad in any way. I always feel like everyone is judging or watching me (im not a psycho trust me 🤣) and there is nothing worse then being forced into a social situation. As an example, the waiting room
  22. I (M35) have been talking with this woman (32) since last December and we have met once (date went great). Our conversation have been extremely deep and we do have common values as well as goals in life. She is kind and smart but very, very emotionally sensitive and introvert. She also has tendency to "withdraw" every now and then. After our last date, we already made initial plans for another date. However, I noticed she started to flake - not responding to messages quickly and sometimes even left messages to unread. After a few days, my anxiety got a better off me and I called her out.
  23. My boyfriend of 1.5 years called him about 5 months ago at 2 am and did not block her number. I answered the phone and she didn’t respond. She then continued to call his phone 3 or 4 times right after from blocked number he answered and she didn’t respond. He admitted to me that she would call him every now and then before we began dating just to say hi. He also admitted to me that she called him the first week we began dating and he called her back to tell her she needs to stop calling him as he is in a relationship now. After this phone call happened in September it took a toll on me and he
  24. Hi everyone, I'm sorry in advance if this turns out to be a long post or if it sounds overly emotional/confusing. I am in desperate need of advice and have no one to turn to. Right now, my mind is a mess..I am shocked, sad, and drowning in my own tears My story: I'm in a committed LDR for the past 4 years with my boyfriend. He lives in Texas and I'm in Canada. We have made frequent trips during that time as well as spoke on the phone (and internet) every day, multiple times a day for hours. He has already met my family and I flew to another country to meet his father. Since the begi
  25. Hi, I could use some advice on a girl that I like. Currently (24M) & she is (27F). We met at a summer job 6 years ago and we became best friends, I had just graduated high school at the time and she had just finished her second year of college and we were going to two different colleges across the state and I had gone on some dates with her that summer and we kept in touch. The next summer we worked at the same job and got even closer and became better friends but still did not attempt to date. I liked her, but because I was younger and wanted to enjoy college and didn't think long di
