About Me

  1. I just want to vent a little. It pisses me off when I'm walking with my girl and she makes eye contact with every guy that passes by. And when we're sitting in a restaurant or anywhere in public, she has to make eye contact with every guy that sits near us or passes by. It annoys me, because I know how guys think and they love it when they get a girl (especially when she's with her guy) to make eye contact with them; it's sort of empowering to them. I believe that browsing at other guys is not all that bad and that's a separate issue, but I'm talking specifically about making eye contact wit
  2. Hello all, So, I am suffering from retroactive jealousy, and i feel like it's messing up my head really bad right now. To give you some background, I am 24 years old and have been dating this girl for about 9 months. She's two years older than me, 26. I had never experienced sex or romantic relationships, or dating of any kind before I met her. Our relationship has been very great, as in almost all RJ stories I have read.. And i really hope i could be happy with her. So, now to the RJ part. In short, the things my girlfriend has told me she has done when she was younger disgust me a
  3. Hi all, I will try and keep this short as possible. As some of you may have read before I’ve been having some issues with my marriage, mainly intimacy issues. Through one thing or another we are both giving it time but there is still zero intimacy between us, nothing at all. No kissing, cuddling, not even holding hands as this is my wife’s request and I’m trying to respect her wishes. Me on the other hand, I’m trying my best and being patient although I am still very attracted to my wife in every way but I’m finding other ways to channel my urges and it works some of the time other times
  4. Found this forum whilst trawling the web for advice. I'm hoping someone here can help me understand what's happening to me. Married for 2 yrs, to the funniest, most loving man I ever met. We have wide social life, lots of friend male and female. I have never been jealous in my entire life and always prided myself in being laid back and understanding in my relationships. My husband is a car mechanic and out of the blue his boss got him a workmate, that turned out to be a petite, dark haired, beautiful Italian woman, some 18 years younger than me. When I first found out, my head liter
  5. I feel crazy posting this to the internet but I need some advice so, what the hell. Sorry it's so long lol My boyfriend has lived with his family for years, including his 3 yr. old niece; who is just about his favourite person in the world. I moved in with them about 5 months ago, until that point he had such a strong relationship with his niece that they slept in the same bed. Now, I love children, I claim everyone's kid as my own regardless of whether I know them or not. However, from the point I moved in, my boyfriend's sister-in-law made it abundantly clear that she didn't like me and
  6. My husband and I have only been married since the New Year, together for about 3. We recently made some new friends online during the quarantine, and he ended up bonding very closely with one of the girls over a common game interest. They literally spend hours in voice calls together whilst I'm at work (he's currently at college on 3 days a week so has a lot of free time) and if I ask what he's up to he'll say he's talking to her. He invited her up for Halloween and a few days before that actually tried to bring up an old topic with me that we'd joked about before and suggested we
  7. Hi, will try and keep it brief but something is really bugging me and a few things just don't add up. Started a few years ago, I sat down to watch a movie with my girlfriend on Netflix and it showed she was half way through one, something she wouldn't necessarily pick so I asked and she claimed I watched it with her...I know I didn't so I wondered who it was with. She also had fingerprint bruises on both legs, again it wasn't me and she also recalled a conversation we had, again it wasn't me. Each time I've had to let it go, she's gone mad at me for even thinking she'd do something behind my b
  8. So I Met this Girl at an Event. Im also a Girl. We went to drink afterwards and I got tipsy and asked her to kiss me. It worked and she took me to her apartment, but as we were going there, I got completely drunk. We had sex but I forgot everything about it the next day. She told me I said horrible things about myself and I need therapy. Yet she agrees to see me again and she invites me to her apartment agai next week. I find her manners way too bad. She doesnt let me talk at times, she calls me names, shes really strict to me for no reason. Ive been bullied before, so I overreact. She explai
  9. My grandmother did drugs when she was raising my mother, specifically in high school. Because of that my mother had a horrible childhood. However...my grandmother got clean towards the last 20 years of her life. She was able to be a great grandmother to me. She took on the role of the second parent and partially raised me: picked me up from school, was there when I got home, was excited to ask me about my day. I feel that me being born gave my grandmother and grandfather a chance to be viewed in a new light without a past and they were grateful for that treated me like a princess. Howe
  10. My husband and I have been together 16 years - since we were 18 and 19. He is a musician but it's more of a dream/hobby, he has a day job that pays the bills. He is passionate about his music however, always has been, and he's talented. The last 7 years he has been helping artists to write and produce songs, helping them develop their songs then recording and mixing them. Much of this has been for the love of it/experience though sometimes he earns a little money. What I find hard is the artists are almost all female, beautiful, talented too and younger than me. His studio is set up in an
  11. Long story short. I have been dating and living with my girlfriend who i really love for almost 8 months now. My only issue is that she is good friends with her ex "friends with benefits" friends. To top it all of, she seems to be getting along with them ( 3 in total) really well. she has more common interests with them then she has with me. It makes me question why she chose me instead of them, I guess it may be the fact that we have common values and that we want the same things in life. I keep feeling that she made a mistake and that she will soon realize and let me go. We have spoken about
  12. We’ve been dating for about 2.5 years, this has been one of the most meaningful and deeper relationships I’ve had. I’m 36F, him 36M. We’ve talked about marriage and kids, and our relationship in the past 1.5 years has been solid. However during the first year of our relationship was rocky due to some jealousy issues on my part. We’ve since gotten past that up until now. Admittedly it was something I had been working on for a long while, I am always doing the work to improve myself and to be the best version I can be. However, I have the occasional slip ups, and in this case I recently acted

  14. After my ex strung me along forever, he finally came clean and explained to me that he can't/won't do "normal" relationships. It was a punch to the gut to hear this, but I'm trying to understand where he's coming from because I know many people who feel the same way as him. I'd say I'm pretty open-minded. I don't do jealousy, and I could absolutely see myself being in an open or even polyamorous relationship. The key there for me is trust. When I know where I stand with someone, there is no reason to be jealous. There's enough love for everybody. Initially, after I realized that my ex w
  15. I left my narcissist husband last year (after years of his cheating, drinking and reckless behaviour). I zoned out of the marriage years prior and did a lot of grieving and growing during that time so I felt I was ready to move on. A few months later I met a guy and he is my problem. At first everything was ok although I could sense he was a little insecure. He was desperate to push the relationship along at breakneck speed and was pretty pissed when I said we should take our time before talking of moving in together (after like 3 or 4 months). I don’t know really what went wrong but he see
  16. So my ex and I have been broken up for 2 years. We have 3 kids together. We still care deeply for each other but can never seem to make a relationship work. She had an affair a few years ago and we tried to make it work after that but couldn't because she still lied and hid things from me (nothing big, but still showed me she hadn't changed) and I'm not one to let betrayal slide. She has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer as well as Ovary cysts and I know she wants me by her side while shes going through this. She has family but they're not as supportive as they should be. I know
  17. So this girl and I were friends for a year..we almost started hanging out alone but but it became a mess..she had a bf...I backed off, then she messaged me asking how I was. I noticed she broke up with her bf so I said we should hang out...she said she was going on vacation but wanted to hang out when she got back...I told her let me know when she gets back and well plan something...that was 3 weeks ago...I texted her yesterday...she never texted back but then showed up to my work with another guy...they didnt seem particularly interested in each other and she didn't say hi to me or anything.
  18. I noticed that my guy bff has become a little possessive lately. This usually happens when I hangout with my other friends, most especially if he knows that I'm going out on a date. He is a little chill with the former; he just asks who I'm with and where I'm going. With the latter though, not so much. There was this one time where he scheduled a work meeting on the exact day of my date so I have to call the poor fella to resked. Even some of our friends notice his jealousy, and would suspect that maybe he likes me romantically but would choose not to prod him. There are times when I can feel
  19. My girl best friend and I which have been romantically involved in the past and have deep feelings for one another, which has been very hard at times but at this point in time we are best friends at least that's what it seems, wanted to know how normal is it that we say I love after almost every conversation which is everyday and she gets very jealous over other girls not that I'm involved with anyone else and she has told me herself that she will always be jealous and recently told me she can't live without me , also very open with physical touch,, this situation is what's best at the moment
  20. Hey guys, Normally I don't get on these types of forums and just read material online but I'm stuck within my relationship where I know that most of the problems I'm facing are my own past traumas from past relationships as I've got older. The current woman I'm with is very nice, extremely supportive and things were moving perfectly until I found out about her past which I seem to be experiencing issues moving past and putting 100% trust in her. We have spoken about these issues and she has said that she wants me to love her for who she is now and not who she was back then, she admitted th
  21. I am curious as to what makes a girl toxic. I was friends with benefits with a girl for about 4 months before it got confusing, after I talked with her about it, it continued to be confusing, and after I talked to her again, she dodged everything I said and tried putting it back on me instead of understanding how her actions were messing with my head. The first time we hung out, we had sex, and then laid in bed cuddled up talking for 6 hours straight. We went to college together and are both 22. We agreed to be friends with benefits but it slowly got more and more confusing for she started
  22. I’ve been with my boyfriend about 9 months now. I’m 23 & he is 25. From the start it wasn’t easy. At first I didn’t want to be in a relationship w/ him because even in our talking phase we would argue & I would tell him that I didn’t wanna be in one w/ him if it was gonna be like that. It’s my first official relationship & it’s not what I thought. I feel we are really toxic. We fight all the time still & sometimes days in a row it’s really exhausting. However I still do really care for him & like him. He on the other hand I feel like has a very strong love for me that I fee
  23. Hi im 24 year old lesbian and my girlfriend is 24 and I get jealous everytime she messaging on her phone and i accidentally logged into her snapchat account and blocked people from talking to her
  24. So my boyfriend has a very close group of friend he sees almost every week. We all hang out together. One of my boyfriend's friend has a girlfriend. Lets call his friend Jim and his girlfriend Lindy. Jim and Lindy have been dating around the same time my boyfriend and I started dating. They didn't show much PDA before but recently started being lovey dovey. Jim talks a lot about Lindy even when she's right there and always show her a lot of attention and centers around her even around guy friends. My boyfriends friends all started considering her as the queen and seem to approve of her. They a
  25. Before I go on, I'm totally aware that I have problems. I am in therapy and have been for along time, I constantly try to get better in this area and DO get better, but it's a very slow process. So here's my story. I met my girlfriend a year ago and we fell in love pretty hard. The first 4 months we weren't "together" we were in that stage of "Oh i don't want anything serious". Basically we were both being super insecure and pushing each other away. During that time we both slept with other people. When we finally got together things were perfect, a dream. About a month in we bumped int
