About Me

  1. Hi guys...not used this for a long long while. But I think I'm just not getting something. Met a woman on an App. Chatted for just under a week. We discovered we had so much in common. I'm a teacher, she's a paediatric nurse. I have an 8 year old kid, she has a 7 year old. But also our whole attitudes to life seemed to match on our attitudes to enjoying ourselves, risk taking, humour etc. On paper at least I have not found someone to have so much in common ever and I'm 42. She is 37. We laughed and joked and flirted. We agreed to meet up on the Saturday for drinks. By that
  2. Hi, I had a conversation with my BF yesterday. He lives far but he was at our favourite place yesterday and watching a show that we first watched together when we first met. it is a show you can walk up to and watch and I think he often goes anyway. He sent me a pic of it and made me all happy. Then he said he misses me which I said I did too. We have two weeks booked away together soon. I said I can't wait to see him and then he said thank you for everything. He has never said that before and I wonder is that a sign of something wrong in the relationship. I know how can a positive thing be
  3. My story is about long distance relationship (LDR) start from i've been oversea (travel alone). And I met this guy on the street and he came to talk to me. Then, he took me to many places and he is really polite and romantic person (make me feel like I'm a princess) like he bought necklace with his name and gave to me to remember him when we apart, gave me rose, asked DJ to sang a song for me, we always hold hands. He asked to spent overnight with me, but I refused (we kissed and hugs). On the last day, I saw he was crying and he told me that our relationship won't end here. So, I gave him my
  4. This guy and I have been dating around a month. One afternoon came that I didn’t hear from him all day, and I ended up coming on too strong in how I reacted to that. He admitted to me that it spooked him a bit bc he didn’t think we were there yet. We both agreed we still wanted to spend time together and get to know each other and see where this could go. A week after having this talk, I asked him out to the movies. He happily accepted right away. We set a plan and the next day we went. After the movie, I expected the night to be over but he asked if I wanted to go grab a bite to eat. So we di
  5. I met someone when I was around 13, he was 14. We met as our families knew eachother and we got together for Thanks Giving. We sat on the couch, nearly held hands and boom. I felt my first real crush come on. (to 13 year old me nearly holding hands was a huge deal). They live on the other side of the country, we spoke almost everyday for around 8-9 months but it fade when he went to Europe for the summer. Fast forward 7 years, I've had relationships with other guys. I've never stopped thinking about him. Over this time we've occasionally seen eachother, talked often. But I've never been abl
  6. So ive been talking to this girl that i adore for the last couple of months and we finally met up yesterday, we met through our friends and we hit it off quite well, however we couldnt find a perfect time to meet up until the other day. It was perfect, we went for a walk and went back to hers and watched like 4 movies, eventually she got really close and we linked hands and basically snuggled up to each other, i didnt really expect it cause we had formed a very good realtionship over skype and messages ect and i mean it jumped really well. so after i went back home and stuff i started feeling
  7. I'm turning 27 in a month and to say that my experience with dating is nonexistent would be an understatement. It dawned on me that in nearly 3 decades my greatest accomplishment was holding hands with a girl, not counting a number of failed dates. It's not my intention to create a rant about how 'nice guys stay single', nor do I want to blame women for my situation. It's just as I get older, I fail to see the point in trying my luck with yet another date while I could be spending my time doing something else. I work in automotive research and development and I make props and costumes as a
  8. Hello, I have been having trouble in my relationship and I never thought I for one would be using a relationship for advice but when push comes to shove, sometimes you just need to do what you need to do. So here I am. I have been dating my boyfriend on and off for the last three years. We are currently together at the moment. When I say on and off that is because we broke up a few times in between. When we first got together we lasted one and a half years, then we broke up, six months later ended up back together and broke up after a couple of months and then a few months later found ou
  9. A few months ago I fell inlove with a guy And everything was perfect. He was perfect. It's been 7 months since we broke up but I'm still inlove with him. While we were together he would tell me about his extremely attractive female friends and that I'm the "biggest" girl he's ever dated. I'm not even that big. I'm 160lbs and 19 years old. I'm not the size I should be but I'm not bed ridden either. He blocked me on Facebook and told me it was because he's a very private person. The more I thought about it the more it occurred to me that he might be embarrassed of me. Although he's very public w
  10. Hi, I'm looking for help to improve my marriage of 3 years and try to understand what could possible cause me to avoid affection in any form of hugging, kissing or even holding hands with my wife who I love dearly and she is gorgeous so attraction to her is definitely not a factor. Here is the thing, this is nothing new to me, I had the same issue with affection like this in past relationships, when things are new and fresh I have no problem and I'm very affectionate physically and verbally for the first few months but once the relationship is no longer in the beginning stages I quite desiring
  11. My boyfriend and I have been together for three years, best friends for six. We were always compatible and meant to end up together. Here's my issue. About a year ago, we got into a pretty heated argument and he told me he wanted space for a few days. Never told me if we were broken up, or if he just needed some time for himself. While this was going on I was a mess, not knowing where we stood. The next night I found a video he was tagged in of him and another girl at a bar, he was obliterated, dancing very close. My issue with this is that I have always been uncomfortable with this girl,
  12. Good time of the day, I've have the following situation, In March I was forced to find a job with a better salary, due to some circumstances. I was introduced to my new manager, the woman that I'm currently working with and going to speak about. I was working on my new place for 2 months and she didn't care much about me. Meaning that I didn't make any problems, such as being late, doing my tasks wrong and etc. Quite the opposite, I've managed to do most of the tasks correctly and earlier than they should be done. And after doing so for some time, I seemed to drag her attention. We start
  13. I dont know whats wrong with me, but i seem to be analysing everything that she says and getting paranoid that theres more meaning to it. I left her about 4 weeks ago now, it was a decision i made in the heat of the moment and regretted it ever since doing it. We met up on monday to chat, we both turned up hoping that it would be really awkward and we could say that leaving was for the best. It didnt go down like that though, what was planned as a quick 2 hours till the train turned into both missing our trains, both missed the last train and the station closing. We talked for almost 5 hours
  14. Ok so my ex and I have been broken up for 1 1/2 years. We have 2 children together. We spend a lot of time together and speak almost everyday. Well today I tried to hold her hand and she wouldn't allow it. I asked her why was she being so hat in me and she responded I made her that way. I asked her if she was going to be difficult with me. She responded tsarcastically hopefully not. She then said that she was not going to change anytime soon. Is it time for me to give up and take my losses? We are even going to a wedding this Saturday? Do I give her more time. Why does she spend a lot
  15. Hello, I'm new here. Romantic relationships weren't something I thought about until recently, as I never go looking for them so this is all pretty new to me. I don't really know how the whole relationship thing works For context, I'm 20 and there's a guy I started talking to (he's 21) over a year ago (in 2015), and we live 80 miles apart. We first became internet friends after bonding over our tastes in music and art, and have been speaking everyday since we started. After a few months of talking he came to visit me for a week and had a great time. We laughed so much. On the night befor
  16. So there is a guy who I've been friends with for years but have got a lot closer of late. We were on the couch just talking and he starts saying how his mum loves me and I should be part of his family. He asks if I want children in the future. He tells me I'm exactly what he looks for. Then later we were lying in bed just chatting. I was in his arms and he kept kissing my forehead and holding my hand,interlocking my fingers with his (felt so close to him) Then he stops looks at me and asks if I'm in love with him..I mumbled something and kind of said I don't know. I do love him but didn
  17. I met a great guy through friends of friends. We went out this past Saturday for pizza and beers and had a really great time. Found out we have a *lot* in common, we both didn't want the evening to end so did things like walked along the beach, got Starbucks and just hung out. It was great. So great, in fact he asked if I wanted to get together and make dinner the next night and watch surf movies. He's a super sweet, shy guy and I knew nothing sexual was implied or would happen. While we were watching the sunset, he held my hand and gave me a sweet kiss, nothing major, just a peck. So
  18. So, Ive known this guy a long long time. Recently things got a bit weird and we almost started acting like a couple. Nothing physical happened but he was becoming very affectionate and wanted to hold my hand etc. Due to a few misunderstandings and the fact that it was heading in a direction I wasn't comfortable with (I assumed he wanted a casual thing), we had a huge fight. We didnt talk for a few months. We recently me up to fix things and he got all emotional. Said he couldn't live without talking to me and couldn't believe he had lost me. That it really stressed him out and Im like his
  19. Can't believe I'm posting again. This time about a third guy. I really need some help with what to do. So this is a new guy who I had two dates with. On the first date we hit it off. Him talking about something, and me thinking "OMG, it looks like I am falling in love!". I managed to pull myself off these thoughts and act sensible. Then later, talking about something I catch him looking at me with such dreamy, fond eyes. Later he said he had felt like he had known me for a long long time, like I had been his dear friend. Our second date was this Saturday. He invited me to an exhibition, ha
  20. so, I posted the other day how my ex broke up with me telling me horrible things, despite all the crap i did, i know i wasn't as horrible as he thought I was, even though I loved him. so the problem is that i'm much more feminine than him, i have very emotional feelings, i would cry everytime we had an argument, and i'd be so girly sometimes, although not to the point where people would give me a weird look on the streets, but he's the very masculine type of guy, and he told me amongst many things, that he wanted to be with a man, that he wasn't dating a woman like me, that he never wanted a c
  21. So a little back story is needed- I am a girl. In August 2015 my long term girlfriend broke up with me and I was devastated. Went back to uni in September feeling sad but a lot better than I did feel. I went back a week early and only a couple of my friends were there. one in particular lets call her Sophie. Sophie was amazing, she was there for me and a huge help, we had always been close but not as close as we became in that week. We spent a lot of time together and got to know each other really well. She told me things about herself that she says she's never told anyone else. I did NOT see
  22. I might be just blind to her advances but i might also be just over reading things but here we go. So 3 months ago this amazing girl came and worked with me for 2 weeks at my work space and we hit it off really well. We took long walks when we were not busy with work and talked constantly. Yet after the 2 weeks she had to back to her home town which is my home town. So i make trips to see my son (i have been divorced for one and a half years and my ex wife is already dating some other guy) who is also in my home town. I ask her if she want to hang with me and my son while we go down town. So w
  23. I haven't been part of the forum long but of the few days I've been here, it seems like a lot of posts are regarding... problems in relationships. I thought I'd change things a little bit and bring up a lighter ...more pleasant topic: what do you love about you significant other? Some things to list for me: - The way he comes home and I am the first thing he looks for. - The way he randomly hugs or kisses me just because. - The way he lets me lay on his chest until I fall asleep. - The way his hands feel when we hold hands and when we cuddle. - The way his hands feel when we do
  24. I got talking to a girl a while back and we really clicked, but unfortunately for me, she had a boyfriend, who just happened to be one of my friends... We were out with mutual friends and ended up sharing a taxi back, whilst in the taxi I felt her reach to hold my hand - we spent the journey holding hands and smiling whilst one of my (other) friends was sat in the front completely oblivious to the situation. This happened 3 weeks in a row, which to me signals that she must like me? Anyway we started messaging each other on facebook and spending literally hours talking to each other online, th
  25. This is my first real relationship with a girl. I've been going out with my girlfriend for about a month now. We usually just hang out around the house together and enjoy each other's company. Most of the time we watch movies together. The only thing we've really done is kissed on the lips a few times. When is it right to make out with her? I really want to but I don't want to mess up the moment. Should I do it when we're watching a movie alone at one of our houses? Also, when we're watching the movie should I put my arm around her or does that annoy girls? We do seem to hold hands a lot wh
