About Me

  1. I have been going through a motivational slump off-late, and it hit me a few days ago when I saw how I had wasted the weekend. I text my Mom to share this with her, and my Dad chimes in and gives me a long sermon about what would help my mental woes. While it was all good, healthy stuff he was telling me, I was really not in the head space to listen to any of it and I was kind of worn out by the call. I video call my fiance and joke about how Dads are always the ones to give us the "Dad talk" when we go to them with problems. His Dad is kind of similar, and we share a couple of jokes. My fi
  2. I don’t like them and want to add things to them which would suit my personality. The woman who did them lives across the street from me. 😓 Would you change them? I don’t want to hurt her feelings but at the same time I can’t stomach them I guess she didn’t understand what I meant.
  3. Hi everyone! I am new on here and I'm looking for some advice on my relationship predicament. I apologize it is somewhat complicated/lengthy. I have been with this guy for 4 years. Our personalities are basically the same and we like all of the same stuff. But, lately we have been drifting apart and he doesn't communicate well at all. His major downfalls are that he cannot seem to get his life together. His license got suspended, he has no car insurance, a theft on this record, and he cannot find a stable job. I have been paying for our rent, groceries, and I have put myself in debt to k
  4. Hi all, this is my first time posting and I am seeking some advice. I have been with my male partner for about a year and a half. He moved in with me in July. I feel so discontent and dissatisfied with this relationship. I want more laughter, more conversational flow, more joy and playfulness. He's quite serious and quiet. He's a good man, and I'm feeling terrible about this. I have so much shame around it... I feel like I may have moved forward when I had doubts and now he's fully living in my home and has no idea how unhappy I am in this. I don't know how to start this conversation. I know I
  5. by skinny i don't mean anorexic, but overall petite figure. but this seems to limit my chances. i don't exactly know why i feel this way. of course looks and personality is also important. grrr this is like a huge catch 22, i just want to get a gf so we can make each other happy but if she's not what i want physically i will always want more. sigh...
  6. My ex (29M) broke up with me near the end of July, his main reason was that he had lost feelings for me and thought it would have lasted longer?? We've been dating for 5 months and never had any arguments that would drive him away. There are other reasons too that causes this break up according to his words such as lifestyle and personality differences (which I found to be BS because our personality aren't majorly different). He just couldn't see this relationship in long term but yet he doesn't know what he wants in a relationship or what to do in life career wise. He said he doesn't want to
  7. I am 44 (f), and my partner is 50 (m). I have been in an exclusive relationship for four months. We get along well and have a lot of similar interests and personalities; however, I am struggling in the relationship because he is not openly comfortable with communicating his feelings or his emotions with me. I am very open, communicative, and like to show and tell my partner how I am feeling. I have told him that at times I feel like I am not getting enough affection even if it’s just a simple kiss or a hug or to tell me that I am beautiful, he seldom initiates. He will only tell me he
  8. Hello, this is my first post here and not sure in the right place. I am in my mid twenties and I have a big problem with building relashionships. I think my biggest failure is communication and low confidence. I can barely be present inside groups of people. I have always this feeling that they are better than me and that I can be forgoten in the group and not heard because I deserve it. I really feel so sorry that people do not get to see my true perdonality as I get trapped in emotions and nervous when around people. But dont get me wrong I have a good bavkground in every topic of conver
  9. Hello, I thought I would post on here because I feel I can't talk to any of my friends about some of the things that have been going on and been feeling very isolated and been losing my confidence. I moved back home from university in June and in late June I received some bad news that made me feel horrendous. Living with my family has been difficult. There is a drama every other day- yesterday we had to pick up my brother from the police station because he had assaulted someone alongside other things. Every other day we are dealing with him and his constant issues. I am the youngest o
  10. I been tading my boyfriend for 2.5 yrs now. To me it seems one side relationship and what i mean by that is i am the one who tries everything to make him happy. I cant get anywhere with him and am tired of trying. I been thinking about breaking up a lot but dont know how. I am 34 yrs old and he is my only serious relationship i had. We have different personalities yet, i am not a needy woman. I am very layback active person and for the last two yrs i been watching him coming back ftom work always tired and all what he wants to do either watch TV or play video games. The house is a mess all th
  11. I'm a 29 year old man who's in an increasingly serious relationship with a wonderful 25 year old woman, we've been together for about 6 months now, with talks of moving in together before long. We spend a lot of time together, most of which is great, I can see myself living with her for the rest of my life, though one of her personality traits has me on edge and I feel like I have to be cautious. I've only been with 3 different girls, including one 7 year relationship that was smooth-sailing until the end, I've never had senseless fights before somehow, they always had a reason and in retro
  12. My situation might be quite weird compared to the average poster. I'm an avid gamer, it's my main hobby and it's how I spend most of my time. Through this I've had the luck of meeting an incredible girl: she's selfless, responsible, smart, we are absolutely on the same wavelength, have similar life experiences and we just connected in a beautiful way that made us fall in love. We live in different countries which, of course, makes things hard, but we call every day and try doing different things together when we both have time. Caring so much for one another, we've made plans to meet and no
  13. Hi, I'm Male, sixteen and I recently had a bad fallout with a friend. For this story to make any sense I have to start from the very beginning. So I'm an only child and I live quite far away from anybody my age. I went to primary school and I was often semi-excluded because I didn't know anybody and I was smarter than everyone there. I kind of grew up to be narcissistic and competitive. For my first year of secondary school this continued although then I met this guy who I'll call X. For the first time I felt like somebody cared for me and I truly felt like over the next two years I grew a di
  14. I have a few friends, not a ton, but a healthy amount. My issue is that I'm always thinking of them, but no one really thinks of me or includes me in much of anything. I'm usually the one initiating, and even then most of the time I'm shot down when I try to plan things. No one ever wants to hang out with me, and even my closest friends are starting to drift further and further away. I'm just tired of being so lonely, and spending so much time at home by myself. I don't really want to make new friends, or go through the whole arduous process of building new friendships from scratch all ov
  15. I befriended a friend of a friend I'll call him J. I knew J from my bro T from last year. I didn't really get to know J that much. Since the start of this new semester, I've been slowly getting to know J a bit since we live in the same apartment complex. We hit off last weekend when we chilled, and he introduced me to his friends. We got along alright and partied on Friday and Saturday. Though, I feel somewhat confused about my new friend J. Why? He feels quiet sometimes when we talk alone. And I try to give him the chance to talk in the conversation, that is good etiquette but he doesn
  16. We've been dating for almost a year now, the relationship is very one sided most of the times with me making sure that we have a relationship while she on the other hand just waits & cherry picks whenever she likes to. She tells me that she loves me but I just never feel that she means it judging from how she handles & sees the relationship. She does things on her terms & whatever that benefits her without having any concerns who might be affected even her family unless she's completely busted and exposed. She's a great liar too, a very manipulative one & has the ability to
  17. Ive been single for two years now after coming out of a three year relationship. Im 20 and I just cant seem to connect with anyone else. Everyone I like or have liked are now in relationships or moved away. I do go out to clubs and bars occasionally but it never seems like this is the way to meet the next special someone. I work over the weekends which probably doesn't help either. Ive had a connection with one girl for a couple of years now since the breakup but we only really talk over text, she seems coy when it comes to meeting even though she says she does want to meet. I don't know what
  18. So I have always had this problem of low self esteem when it comes to my appearance. But it's so bad that I feel like I'm worthless and not good enough when I see a female who I feel is more attractive than me. It's like any self esteem I have goes out the window. It's like I feel like I'm just so ugly when this happens. Like what makes me attractive or special? Its mainly my physical self esteem I have a problem with not so much personality. I love my personality, I just hate my physical appearance. And it's not all the time. There are some days I feel great about my appearance. This issu
  19. How important is it to you to have a partner who is pretty? Or friends who are pretty? All my life, I have been told by some people that I am pretty and by other people that I am ugly. My face is asymmetric, and some people find it appealing while others find it unnatural. Walking down the street, passing men have told me that I am beautiful; I was even kissed once (on the cheek) by a total stranger! On the other side of the coin, I have made children cry and professional clients inadvertently laugh when first meeting me face to face. My natural appearance makes me very anxious. B
  20. Well I'll start by saying I'm new and want some advice. Girlfriend broke up with me 5 months ago. I was being a jerk and an all around mean person to her. I would get jealous unreasonably and get mean randomly. She'd reply at first but then blocked me from all contact. I'd leave her voice mails for the next 5 months trying to get her to talk to me. Recently her friend contacted me and said she didn't want me trying anymore and it was done. I want to wait for this girl because I've made huge changes in my life about how I treat others and my overall personality. She hasn't given talkin
  21. I've always been one to try to escape reality through some medium whether it's video games, drugs, music, porn, etc. Lately my mind has been in a dark place and while I have tried to use less the past couple weeks, I'm still in that mindset. I just drank an energy drink for no reason other than the dopamine reward and have been wasting away a few hours on the internet doing nothing productive. I'd say the worst thing about my personality is that I also have the ability to get addicted to people, usually narcissists. So I may have issues with codependency as well. But lately I have done a fu
  22. I met a guy two weeks ago and we've been on four dates. He's a really great guy and personality wise he's husband material. He's not bad looking at all, I just don't feel that spark. After the first date I had the typical butterflies and excitement but that seems to have gone now and I'm trying my hardest to get it back but I don't know what changed. We haven't been intimate yet it's too soon. He disclosed on the second date (which i admire) that he caught an std years ago and it's the kind that sticks around for life so that worries me too. I'm putting myself at risk of catching it so I t
  23. So, I met a girl online on a forum about a month and a half ago. I'm 21; she's 18 I lve in the UK, she lives in Belgium. We started chatting a little using the forum until I asked her if she wanted to move the conversation to Skype, which we did. On Skype, we talk every 3 days. It's almost like clockwork. I wait 3 days to message her, she seems to wait 3 days to message me. Normally, when we chat, we talk about random things. The other day, we played the "question game" where we asked each other different questions about each other's experiences and likes/dislikes. We also recently t
  24. I’ve been with my boyfriend for 2 years. It’s been a rocky relationship with a lot of conflict from the start. We have very different personalities; him very laid back and playful and very big picture and I’m the one who needs accuracy, precision and details. Because of these differences, I’ve been for a lack of a better word, trying to get him to be neater, a better communicator etc. We also speak very different love languages and often times I don’t feel convinced that he cares. Fast forward to 2 years later, he’s reached a point where he finds me “bossy and naggy and unable to focus on the
  25. Hey guys, I wanted to tell you a little about my personality. I started university 2 days ago and I am like never confident. At school, it was the same. Even when I studied, I always thought that I would fail. Before exams, I spend a week crying, thinking I will fail. I started university and I feel the same way. I don't know what to do to beat this. It's really tiring and makes me depressed. I don't know what to do about it. I always think I am not good enough.. not only at school/university. I am like that in everything. It has nothing to do with my look, my boyfriend is crazy about me, I
