Hi! I've been going out with this great girl and after last night I worried that I messed up our chemistry. We had a great third date at the end of last week where we kissed before we left. Last night she invited me over for dinner and we went on a hike. During the hike we talked and had a great time, but I wasn't feeling well (cramps) and I was so focused on how I was feeling I didn't initiate another kiss and the date just ended on a hug. I did apologize for not feeling well but she didn't really mention it in the return text. I guess I'm overthinking because I also feel like she could have kissed me if she wanted to and I wanted her to but we didn't make it happen. but I definitely don't want to just be friends. We are planning on going hiking next week and I want to try and reset, am I overthinking this whole situation or do I need to just step up my game and make it explicit that I like her romantically? Any and all advice welcome, thank you
Hi I'm from the UK, in my early 20s and male. I've wanted to try and reach out about how I've been feeling for a long time now but never quite found the courage. The main feeling is just of a never-ending sadness and just feeling lost and lonely. My life has no direction, sure I have a career ahead of me and that's great but the rest of my life, the personal side, there's just nothing. I never have anything to look forward to, there's never anything exciting happening, I'm uninterested in everything and every conversation and I'm always worrying and worrying about the tiniest of problems and overthinking to the extreme where I fabricate social scenarios in my head that never will and never do happen. I'm agitated and upset when I don't feel in control of everything happening in my life, and I get upset when other people try to takeover things or reorganise things or try to tell me how I should do something. I've never been in a relationship but I'm in love with a friend but I don't even have the confidence to address my feelings with her. My confidence is rock-bottom I hate the way I feel and just seeing everyone else around me doing so well while I just struggle to keep up and I'm just so sick of feeling this way. I just feel like every time I try to be better I always fail. I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the right topic/forum but I wondered if anyone ever felt this way and got through it or maybe if anyone has any advice or comments. thank you.
