About Me

  1. Okay so my boyfriend and I are both pretty insecure. This is something we are aware of and working on. Anyways, the other day he was showing me something on his phone and happened to scroll past a porn video he had saved on his phone. I have always told him I don’t care if he watches porn and have kind of an “out of sight out of mind” policy about it. I don’t mind the idea of it and I know pretty much every man watches it but seeing it for myself made me sick to my stomach. I also asked him a few weeks before if he watched it and he said no. I’m not sure why he lied because we are usually pret
  2. Hi everybody! I desperately need help. Last year I met and dated this guy for whom I fell super hard. Head over heels, crazy. Well, the feelings for him have subsided, but one issue remains. He had recently ended a relationship when we met. Turns out his ex and I look a lot alike. Like sisters. Because of certain things, he made me feel like the reason why it didn't work between us is because he was just out of that relationship. Well, I was shaken to the ground, and now I am obsessed with his ex. It's unhealthy. Her face pops up on my head randomly. Thoughts of comparison to her are constant.
  3. We've been in a monogamous relationship for 6 years, never had any real issues, and have a pretty frequent at least once a day on average sex life. We're open with each other sexually, open about masturbating, and using sex toys together. Just recently after years he bought his first flesh light type toy. Then over the next few months I noticed he got 10+ of them, starting to get bigger and bigger like full body part toys. Many boxes that took up a big portion of the closet. A little weird to me, bothered me a little deep down that he had way more sex toys to use alone than my one shower
  4. Do you have book passages, quotes, poems that left their mark on you, speak to you, do you perhaps even use them as a mantra or orientation in life? Perhaps you just..like them? Well, I have tons and tons and I never seem to get enough and have the same curiosity drive me in the inquiry about yours as some women have for "what's in your handbag" pins. It's an obsession of mine almost. If you have bits of literature you'd like to share I bet some of us bookworms would love to read them. If possible, try to add the authors name or a book title for those who might be interested in reading mor
  5. I have an unusual situation. 6 months ago I started talking to a girl online who was having relationship issues with her now ex-boyfriend. We became very close friends, and had a really strong genuine connection. We would talk for 6+ hours easily without even realizing. All contact was always initiated by her. I'm 30(M), she's 23. She's very self-destructive with relationships. She chooses guys who treat her horribly simply because she finds them attractive. Honestly, I started developing feelings for her, despite knowing we could never have a relationship (I couldn't ever trust her, s
  6. 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
  7. Hi everyone, I'm in a bit of a transition stage in my life at the mo and to cut a long story short I've moved in with my mum for a few months while I get money together for a house deposit and find a decent place. We have always had a strained relationship but it has gotten better in recent years. When I was growing up she was very critical of me and made daily comments about how I looked, especially my weight. I have carried a bit extra for most if my life except for a couple of stages where I lost an extreme amount of weight in extreme ways. I have recently put some weight back on and
  8. I've been feeling really confused. I'm 23, female, and recently got out of a relationship with my ex-boyfriend. I truly loved him, and we had a great sex life for about the first year. However, over the last several months I started to have a lot of questions about my sexuality. I fantasized about sex with a woman sometimes while we were having sex, and sometimes while masturbating as well. It impacted our sex life because I started to feel like there is this whole other side of me that I haven't explored and don't understand, and I felt like I needed to explore it. I decided to try to call
  9. I started seeing my friends friend. I knew him for about 6 months before we started dating. We went out on a first date, he was lovely. We went back to his chatted, watched a film and we slept together (Which wasn't planned and I don't normally do that) We then started to see each other once a week. He is a Police officer so he works all different shifts. I would go round his house we would watch a film. I asked him if he wanted to go out and everytime he said he wanted to stay in. I thought this was because of his shifts he was tired but as time went on he stopped messaging me back and then
  10. Hi, I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I need some advice on how to handle a situation. My brother and I didn't speak for 6 years. He assualted me and refused to apologise.Then one day out of the blue he called me and apologised. Said he and his partner were trying for a baby and we should patch things up because of it. I'm 43 and don't want kids - my partner and I are childfree (not childless). Anyway, he contacted me in August to say they'd gone through IVF and by September they were pregnant. I met him in October, he apologised for how he'd behaved six years
  11. Daydreams daydreams Why am I smoking so much? Because it’s like forgetting. Numbing. Clearing my mind, filling my lungs. I just want to breath you in, it’s an obsession I can’t quite grasp or shake. It makes no sense. 
 Quiet calm collected- externally
 Cold shaken resented - internally 
 Explore- I want to. 
Answers- I need to. 
 Questions I can’t quite put together. 
 Crave craze cure
 Is it all insane or am I?! For wanting it this bad and needing you like it’s all I have. Every opportunity flashed like a disk, erased in a brisk bittersweet motion. All
  12. Little back story... I've been dating this girl for about 2.5 years. The first year was great, but then we started having lot of troubles. We just didn't agree on a lot of stuff. Very different people. There were days where I was so stressed out about the relationship that I could physically feel it. There was some resentment towards each other after fighting for so long. I just didn't see myself marrying this girl, so I decided to end it. For the most part I ended it, but it was mutual because both of us knew we weren't doing well. So for 3 weeks I was doing fine. I was sad, but I was get
  13. Hey everyone I've been in a serious relationship with my boyfriend for over a year now. At first he seemed so obsessed with me and he acted this way for months and months. The past few months however he hasn't asked to hang out as much or hasn't been like the way he used to be. I know he isn't cheating on anything and I know he still loves me/wants to be with me. He still has moments where he surprises me and acts really cute and says he can't wait to see me and he'll text/call saying really sweet things however the next week he'll act a little distant afterwards and need his space. And th
  14. I don't know why, but I seem to be having a harder time coping with things not working out with a guy I was interested in right after I ended my LTR. I feel more upset about the fling than I do the LTR and I'm wondering if it has something to do with closure? My LTR coming to and end was sad, yes, but it also felt like the right decision so I got over it quickly. I had time to think and process my decision and I'm not one to regret much. Things with this other guy never even got a chance to start and even though I ended it, I'm like... OBSESSED. I want to see him everywhere... Constantly
  15. I'm constantly being told I am part of a dying breed... that people don't believe in old-fashioned romance anymore, like the single red rose, hand holding, soppy kind of romance. I get the feeling people just don't want that anymore, my mum always says she has no idea where I get it from... as she 'isn't one for all that soppy stuff...' and my biological father's idea of romance was just to hit her a little less harder, and throw her around a little less. She tells me to 'never change though, there aren't many like you left in the world anymore...' - it hurts though, because it never seems to
  16. I'm not coping at all. I have decent days, but my mind always switches back to obsessing over my ex. The relationship was not a good one, as I was in a dark place with the death of my best friend. It led to me being emotionally distant and down right mean to her causing us to be on and off until she got the strength to move on. We became friends after the break up for 8 months until she met someone that she fell in love for, and that was where our friendship ended. I accepted it for a bit and then it hit me that I didn't want to let her go, I tried doing my best to stay out of her life by
  17. Hi all, Just wanting some advice on how to get a spark back in my relationship. It all seems very flat right now, we haven't seen each other in 5 days..might not seem long to people but we normally spend a lot of time together. She hasn't been replying to texts as quickly or even making any good conversation either When we first started seeing each other last year it was really good, she was super obsessed with me and we were really happy. My feelings haven't changed but ever since about January this year its been really off, we have had happy times but its not the same. Its like she
  18. Wasn't sure where to put this.... Rather than get too specific on my particular issue(s) regarding friends because I'm still trying to sift through them... I'm wondering if any of you who grew up in abusive households and are aware of intimacy issues have noticed any patterns or repeated problems in friendships? Would you mind sharing or discussing? Examples: cutting and running on friends, obsessing over your worthiness as a person as a result of friends rejecting you, obsessing over your part in toxic friendships, feeling down on yourself because you tend to attract people who aren'
  19. I recently broke up with my boyfriend of almost 6 years.our relationship was falling apart because he pretty much ignored me all the time. I'm about to turn 30 this year. I feel completely out of control. I don't want to date anyone right now, but I can't help but keep crushing on any guy that shows me the slightest bit of attention. It's like s different guy everyday almost, or two at the same time. It's absolutely ridiculous. I haven't felt like this since I was in high school. I don't want to be obsessing over guys. I want to focus on my career, my music, my child. I just really don't know
  20. Hello People. This is my first post so I will try and get straight to the point. So my girlfriend and I have been dating for about 9 months now. She is a great person. We did move kind of fast in the beginning just because of the connection we had. So here is the bitter sweet. She has the biggest heart of anyone I've ever been with and I'm 34 and have dated a lot. We both are obsessed with the same sports team. She doesn't ride my ass about too much. I lost my business and was damn there at rock bottom. She has supported me the way no one else would In this world has. I mean kept me from drown
  21. I've been in a relationship for 18 years and it's finally over. After months of torture dealing with his psychological problems I found his online dating sites, secret phone, Facebook obsession,secretly hiding things i spent months trying to avoid him and or sort things out depending on his mood. He finally agreed to seperate. After years of virtual isolation and no income I have to start to make new friends and become .a 'normal' person again. I'm in the 'mature' age group and need ideas on where I can meet people and start anew, but I live in a small town with limited transport and no sup
  22. My boyfriend has type 2 diabetes. His birthday will be here not too much longer from now so I'm asking ahead of time to see if I can get any ideas or possibly some bakery that makes diabetic cakes? I know what kind of cake I want to get him but omg the sugar! Hes obsessed with superman so I figured a superman birthday cake would be perfect, though I'm not sure what flavor yet. Is there a way I can make or buy a diabetic birthday cake without having it taste like crap? He still eats sugar but not like he would a cake. I dont want to make a birthday cake(or anything for that matter) to spike his
  23. Sorry for such a long thread First of all, we are both young, just out of high school. We have been together for roughly six months and am unsure of how I should be feeling; if I am being ignorant and not seeing how great she is, or if I am scared to be in a relationship at the moment... A little backstory: She has had a bit of a bumpy past, she is facing anxiety and has/is facing depression too. I feel as though it is taking a major toll on our relationship. Right now the most we have done is go on one official 'date' which was at the very early stages, gone to one family functio
  24. I'm still unreasonably upset that my only shot, thus far, for a boyfriend fell off the face of the earth a few moths ago. I find myself obsessing over him and wondering why I wasn't what he wanted. I just want to meet other people but I don't go anywhere aside from work. Help please. I feel pathetic and desperate. I cringe when I recall our interactions. Ugh.
  25. Hi everyone . My girlfriend and I have been together for almost 3 years and up till now , i'm still feeling pretty obsessed with her . We broke up once before , but she came running back to me when i decided to break all ties with her - what i mean is , is that when we broke up , she started to like a new guy - but she also wanted me , wanted to love me at the same time . So since i still loved her , i agreed . But after awhile i found someone new , started to take an interest in this new girl . However she was unaware of this new relationship that i was trying to build . It took me so much co
