About Me

  1. Together for 5 years engaged for 1.5 years and no matter what happened good, great or otherwise he never set a date or would let me set a date. We did pre-engagement counseling and 6 weeks of marriage counseling classes through church (required for the pastor to officiate the ceremony) and within last year did 7 months of coupleÂ’s counseling. During this time of intently working toward marriage we worked out a lot of major and minor details to support a healthy marriage, wanting kids, how to raise the kids, religon and church to go to, living arrangement and down to small exercises about wh
  2. My fiancé and I have been together for almost 5 years and we got engaged a couple months ago before Christmas. When we first started dating, I never had any issues with his sister (I actually thought she was the coolest!). However, as time went on, I realized she really didn’t like me. She looked at me like the person taking him away from family because he was spending all his time with me (we moved in together, moved to another state together for work). She would make snide comments and just generally rude to me (to my face and behind my back). I let it roll off my shoulders because I’m not
  3. Hello everyone I haven't been active in this forum for a very long time because of the many obligations I have had during this year. I live in Europe. Now I am a graduated medical doctor working as a general doctor. Excuse my spelling mistakes english is my second language. I think the last time I posted in here is a year ago or a year and a half ago when I was not yet engaged and had other relationship issues, since then things have been going pretty well overall. My boyfriend and I got engaged 6 months ago. I'll just cut to the chase of the problem: My fiancé is also a doctor and
  4. So my boyfriend proposed this past Thanksgiving and we started planning the wedding about two months ago. We have picked the venue and I have started dress shopping. I am very excited and I truly believe he is my soul mate, but part of me is still a little worried about how his proposal went down. Background info: We started dating 3 years ago, and moved to Chicago together a year ago (we live together in Chicago now). About 2-3 months after living together I started to uncontrollably nag him about when he wanted to get engaged. For some reason I just couldn't stop myself. I had this enormo
  5. I met a girl and hit it off immediately with a strong connection. She was constantly showering me with compliments and telling me how amazing I am and how special I am in her life and how lucky she is to have met me, etc. One week she started getting a little cold and distant telling me she's been too busy at work. About a week and a half later she tells me that she's not interested anymore and that we have absolutely nothing in common (which is glaringly false). lol ? Then less than 2 months later I found out she got engaged. ? How does one make sense of any of this???
  6. Dated ex 1.5 months years loved her a lot wasn’t ready for marriage but wanted to marry her. Covid was hard on us and it was a mutualish breakup but I walked away. I tried to reconcile a couple weeks later but she was hurt and had started dating someone else. I respected her decision and went no contact. She blocked me a month after no contact started and it’s been 4 months. I saw a post through mutuals posting on it, and realized she had unblocked me immediately following her engagement to rebound. Guess I don’t understand why she would unblock me to see that. Also just kind
  7. Hi This is my first post on here so It may be a little long but hopefully some of you have some time and advice to spare Ok so I am a 30 year old female and I am recently engaged. Things with my fiancé are perfect. It is the healthiest relationship I have ever been in. Before him I was in a very emotionally abusive relationship and meeting my fiancé was like a breath of fresh air. The only problem is he has been married before and has 2 children from that relationship. The children aren’t the problem, we get along great they love me and when they are with us we are all very happy. The pr
  8. Hey! I have a new boyfriend and things are going really well. I think I could love him soon. Do we need to be fb official? This seems silly, but I’m in my own head a lot about it. Is this important, or can I just wait until we are more serious, like engaged or something?
  9. Okay, so I know this guy at work and I really like him. We have been friends for awhile now, always had good banter with eachother and always spoke to him about personal problems. Wasn’t until about 6 months ago or so when I realised oh I’ve caught feelings. Only thing is he’s engaged and has a 9 month old baby.. I never said anything and just brushed it off for that reason. Until we went to a works party, he agreed to meet me and walk me to the party (his fiancé didn’t attend) and he got me a drink. We went off to talk to separate people and all was good.. until I had one too many and I pull
  10. My boyfriend and I have been dating for nearly 4 years. We have a son together and are saving for a house. We’re also happy in our relationship. Seven months ago we bought an engagement ring (I picked it out). It’s been sitting in his drawer since then. We’ve talked about the proposal and the only thing I’ve told him is I want it to be private. Well, yesterday he attempted to propose. He put no thought into it. His family is visiting from out of town and thought he’d use them as a sitter for our son. He took me for a walk on the bay. You couldn’t see the water and stopped me beside a huge dr
  11. I’ve had 10+ years of issues with my extended family (twin aunts and cousins-mainly the girls-when I left for college and my cousins dropped out of high school) my mom has had even more with her twin sisters. I felt bullied, belittled, always to blame for everything. I’ve tried many times to have a real conversation about the issues, my mom has too but it’s always brushed off or creates a family drama. I was in a group text with my cousins, whenever I said something in group text was told to shut up, anything good I did was not acknowledged, im too tall, I dress up too much, my bday gift to
  12. So, I’m a 23 year old female. I was proposed to by my 30 year old bf of 3 years a couple of months ago. Prior to this, I was a little a nervous that he might be getting ready to propose. I wasn’t sure if I was ready or if we were really right for one another. He is my first serious bfWhen he asked me I just had this rush of feeling “right.” So, I said yes... I do love him and we have a good time together. We are really different in a lot of ways. If you’re familiar with MBTI an ISFP and he is an ENTJ. We can have a lot of fun together, but many times I come home and just feel worn out by hi
  13. Hi everyone. I want to start by saying I hope everyone is safe and well during the pandemic. About my relationship, I had a tricky breakup last year and I didn't intend to jump into another relationship as quickly as I did, but love happens and everything seems so perfect through those rose-tinted glasses. It's been just under a year since we've been together, our families have met and we come from strict Asian cultural backgrounds (when parents meet it means it's serious and its heading down the path of marriage) I'm so happy with him or I was happy with who he was, but during the p
  14. Hello everyone, I need some advice. So I have been with my partner for going on 4 years this August. He is a very nice guy who I love. There a just a few issues that I am not happy about. I just turned 27 and he is 28 years old . Both are entrepreneurs ( just explaining this for a little background). He can be a bit selfish in some ways. If we go to get some food and the bill is $20 he asks me to send him $10 which I don’t mind doing however, I used to treat him to dinner all the time just being nice. I stopped doing that because he barely reciprocates. He literally tries to split ever
  15. My ex and i were together for 8yrs. We are in our early 40s. We were also engaged. Our relationship had hit really bad/stressful time. So he broke up w/me about 7months ago,and i moved back home. He now has a new woman,she is now pregnant! Anyway i just discovered via facebook that now they are engaged, and she announced it on my birthday! Did he just seriously propose to my replacement on my birthday? SMH!
  16. Sorry if this is a bit long winded, but it’s about a years worth of back and forth over the same issue! I’ve been with my now fiancé for just over 2 years and last July I ended things. He was not long out of a marriage and a year into the relationship I still didn’t exist to anyone in his world. He’d met my parents, my son and my friends but his family didn’t know I existed. Anytime I broached the subject he would say it was just too soon as he didn’t want his family to think we’d been together before he split from his wife. I have pretty low self esteem anyway so to me it just felt like he w
  17. So recent my ex got engaged and is having his party at “our” work. My two best friends have said they will be attending this party and my work are demanding I work despite me thinking that’s a slap in the face from all three of them? So me and him worked together in a small bar for a year when we got together for a year n a half. We also live in the same street and run into each other daily. In that time I loved him deeply despite him making my life a hell, lying to his family and friends and our colleagues about us saying it was just sex even tho it wasn’t about sex, he was the one cha
  18. FYI this story is in the Philippines ... I'm an American living there most of the year.. dated this girl on and off for 3 yrs.. as I was in and out of the country during the 3yrs she dated or had 3-4 other boyfriends ... usually around 2-6 months at a time then she would contact me and we would reconnect few of the times I contacted her first Most of 2018 we are together she dated another guy on-line never met in which we are separated for 5 months.. then end of 2018- through April 2019 we are together and she isn't dating anyone else we lived in different cites but she would fly to s
  19. Hi all, So a couple weeks ago my ex basically just got her uni friend (a guy) to pick her up and not seen her since. She lost her licence to drink driving. It was a very toxic/coercive control relationship from her. Insulting me, what I wore, saying I have no friends, my family hate me. Would split with me briefly and one time tell me she slept with someone and how he ed her real good. That hurt so bad. She's an alcoholic but doesn't think she is, has depression and bad anxiety. Craves attention from guys. Needs so much love due to not a great childhood. Would threaten to kill herself. A
  20. My fiance (32) and I (33) have been together for 3 years (engaged for a few months now) and live together. We love each other and get along very well, but infrequent sex is making me feel awful. I will admit I'm not the best at asking for it, because I don't know how to do it without feeling/acting awkward, and because I take it very personally if I get turned down. My fiance is not the greatest in asking for it either, as we average about once every 1 - 1 1/2 weeks. It's always been this way for the most part. He is out of town often and frequently only home on the weekends. So if we do
  21. If you guys are interested here is the beginning of the story. I had hoped that I would get some sort of positive sign but nothing as happened. I think it is time to go full NC, I really need to heal myself before anything else. She keeps "liking" stuff on my social media page and stays very engaged with my best friends, I am thinking about "un-following" her. The last time I texted her she was quick to respond and said she would help me with a project. It was not an engaging conversation just the basic "ok, got it". She keeps writing things on my friend's pages usually right after I do b
  22. Hello all. Here is my story: I have met my ex-Fiancée 5 years ago in 1999. My got engaged a year ago. We had a HUGE argument this last February, she said something to upset me, I said something back, then all hell broke loose. We said all kinds of nasty stuff to each other until we broke up on very bad terms. I have tried two or three attempts the following 30 days for a Reconciliation, but she is still very cold and closed off. No answers to my e-mails, telling me we are no longer compatible, we have nothing in common anymore, you know, the usual from a frustrated woman... The WEIRD thi
  23. When I was 17 I met this guy I'll call him A, that I really liked so much so that I had butterflies every time he was near me. We was getting to know each other and hanging out. My friends said we should date but I was quite shy back then and I had a bad experience with a previous bf that left me quite wary around guys. It took me quite a while to get my feelings out there to him, about 5 months or so. I told how I felt that I liked him and everything, it turned out he just got with someone else and he felt bad. It kind of ruined our friendship I didn't really speak to him much after that. I m
  24. My partner and I are having a baby this spring. It was a planned pregnancy. I have never felt "traditional" about marraige and all that because of my own family history. We wanted to have a child together, but to be honest, a wedding takes alot more work than making a baby, so we decided to do that part when later on and focus on our family. We are technically married under the law, but of course have not walked down the aisle and all that crap. Usually I could really care less about the traditional wedding/marraige. But my partner is a little more traditional. He got me all convinced that
  25. By a show of hands (or, in this case, online responses), which genre do you prefer? Are you most engaged by fiction books, or are you partial to the non-fiction variety? I fall into the latter group. Give me a book on psychology or history and you'll find me engrossed for hours on end. Those happen to be my two favorite subjects. What about you guys?
