About Me

  1. We met a year and a half ago at work. We pretty much immediately started hanging out as we had the same circle of friends. We then started sleeping together. Neither Of us was wanting anything serious it was purely casual. We both had recently gotten out of long-term relationships. We have created a strong bond between us and I consider him a good friend. To the point where when we both needed a new place to live we decided that we would move in together to help each other. (Que the alarm) it was originally going to be three of us in the apartment. Him and I and one of his friends. That
  2. I know this story is long, I'm sorry! So there's a girl(18) in my(21) class. About a month ago I got her snap and while we were talking that night, I asked if she'd want to do the homework together that week. She said yes and that friday we did just that. We met up at the library, did the homework and talked for a little. I don't think it went bad by any means. Come the next day I replied to a selfie that she posted on her story and we talked for a little until she just sent a picture with nothing. We did that for a little and I eventually just left it on opened. The next day one of my fr
  3. Hi all, Hope all is well. I've been facing something rather interesting with the new roommate. She moved in 2 months ago. During the interview process, she advised that she was living on her own, her lease was up and she wanted to have roommates during the pandemic as living on her own drove her a bit crazy. She was fine the first week and I noticed some odd things: 1. A week after she had moved in, she already asked if she could bring people over during the pandemic. Although not ideal, she invited a person over and then kept inviting her boyfriend unannounced every Thursday evenin
  4. Hi all. I just moved in as roommates with a fellow graduate student a month ago. I am just editing this to simply say that I think I am taken advantage of financially. At the same time, we go to the same school, work with the same people and have the same professional cycle. As a matter of fact, I had felt kind of manipulated into accepting this arrangement. My original plan was to move in a different apartment in the same building, and live alone. I could afford it and still can (his situation is more complicated), but he asked in a way that implied that my continued admission in this profess
  5. This is going to be a long one, I'm sorry but I have nowhere else to turn to. I'm 33, divorced, single for six years, no children, and an extremely small circle consisting of less than a handful of people. For most of these six years I've been okay being single, I get lonely occasionally but as of lately it's really been bothering me. I don't drink so going to a bar is not an option for me cuz I don't enjoy being around people who are drinking, and there doesn't seem to be anywhere else to go to to meet people. I can have conversations with people online, but when it comes down to mee
  6. Am I just being too sensitive? We all just moved in together and mind you, it is our roommate's birthday today. My boyfriend said he was going to call me back after work, but he never did. Lately, its been bothering me that he never calls me after he gets off like he use to. He now just goes straight home and he and our female roommate get off at the same time. I get off later so I usually come home to them hanging out. He forgot to call me back, didn't read any of my texts. He went straight home, gave her the wine for her birthday that we were going to give her together for her birthd
  7. Okay, about 3 weeks post BU and almost as long NC (well...direct NC). I'm hitting alllllll the stages - the highs of feeling like I'm okay, I'm taking the steps to grow my passions and work on understanding/bettering my own personal problems and role in relationships, and feel I can handle this grief process head on, and then all the other chaotic and sometimes conflicting emotions of denial, sadness, anger, compassion, distraction, and so forth come crashing in. So, so exhausting. Anyway, a common denominator is RUMINATING. I am a regular meditator and I STILL cannot stop obsessing over 'si
  8. I recently broke up with my GF of ~5 years. We had had a long distance relationship for much of that time. A bit over a year ago we moved to the same state, though not the same city. I moved here largely at her urging -- I was just beginning graduate school, and I had been planning on going somewhere else, but she convinced me that we needed to be near each other. So I moved to be near her and she started giving me the cold shoulder as soon as I get here. I was not allowed to meet her friends, and within six months of moving here I get dumped. This is, to be honest, not really a surprise.
  9. So, I have a friend who I love dearly, partially as a good friend and partially like a son. He's a really, really sweet guy who cares about others. But he's making some bad decisions and is constantly going back and forth about what he wants to do with his life. The going back and forth doesn't bother me much...he's doing pretty well in his current position so I don't see that as much of an issue even though he seems to change his mind every five minutes about what he wants to do with his life. It's his life path and whatever career he chooses or wherever he wants to live has no beari
  10. I'm really questioning whether or not to continue this friendship. He's been like my best friend for 25 years. We used to hang out every day. Things started getting different after we bought a house together (his idea). After only living together for 2 years, he suddenly tells me he is going to buy a house with another friend, this guy that he only knew for a few months. So it's been about 10 years since that guy came into his life, and we have still hung out, just not as much. I have noticed over the years that my friend doesn't seem to care what is happening in my life, he NEVER asks how
  11. A few months ago, I was having difficulty finding a place to live and my best friend offered his place as temporary housing. We've known each other for 5 years and we get along really well so naturally I've become really close with him. He has had a girlfriend while we were friends and there has been nothing remotely romantic about our relationship. The apartment that I moved into had two rooms - my best friend's room and his roommate's room. He gave me his room to stay in while he slept in his roommate's bed. This was really nice of him but it's not odd because he is in general a really n
  12. We've been together for five years and we're still really close, but the romance is almost non existant. We never cuddle, if I try to kiss him he'll give me a peck but nothing passionate and we barely have sex. He says he's tired and I understand that, but I'm worried he's not attracted to me anymore. I've brought it up but he gets defensive whenever I say anything is wrong. When we argue he always talks down to me and has these little comments that just bring me down to the dirt and make me feel awful. I know he cares about me and he's a good guy but he lets his anger get the best of him and
  13. I've been with my fiancé for over 4 years now. He proposed to me a year and half ago and I'm not quite sure if there is enough substance to actually make any wedding plans in the near future. I realize that there is no perfect relationship and one must be strong when times are rough, but I've got too many unanswered questions. I'm just not sure what to do... He is a bit of a mystery to me. Elusive, withdrawn, empty, cold, and aloof are all words that come to my mind when I describe his character. We both are not big talkers, so communication is not our strong suit. However, I would like to h
  14. I'm starting college in September and I'm having really bad social anxiety all of a sudden. I've never had any type of social anxiety before so this is extremely new. I'm attending a very liberal college that is known for trans students and their LGBT scene. I got assigned a roommate and this person flat out said they weren't comfortable with straight people and then changed rooms. I was really planning on whoever is assigned my roommate to be my friend for the first few months since its all very new and now I don't have a roommate and it's giving me anxiety. There's a online forum for
  15. Hi guys, I'm not feeling too well today and I am in serious need of guidance because I cannot assess the situation properly/rationally at this stage. A few months ago, I moved to a foreign country for work after being stuck at my parents' abusive home for nearly 8 months of unemployment. I left on bad terms and I therefore have since cut ties. It was a relief when I finally landed a temporary position abroad. During the first two months of me being here, I had a successful interview with a major company which later gave me a verbal offer. The ordeal started when the company did not mana
  16. My girlfriend that I've been with for the past 4 months told me tonight that it was kind of heated between her and her roommate so she didn't want to go back to her house for the night. It just so happened that her friends (a married couple who she met at work about a year ago waitressing) came into town to visit since they live quite some distance. She met up with them and then she tells me she's going to get a hotel room with them for the night. Is it me or is that strange?
  17. So, I live in an amazing 3 bedroom, 3 bath house near the beach. I have an awesome teenage son that lives with me for one week on, one week off. Even when it's my week, he's rarely home. So I found myself alone a lot in this large home, just me and my dog. I had a friend who had a friend that needed a place to stay pretty much right away. We met, we clicked and decided she'd move in. She pays a reasonable rate for the area, etc. She's in her 30's a really nice girl. When she first moved in she went out a LOT, she'd leave on Friday and I wouldn't see her again till Monday. Well, late
  18. So I have recently been talking with( “A'') 30/M )a friend I know from university, and I was talking about myself and that I had an ex boyfriend (“S”) for some time now, and Since he was asking, I decided To approach the moment and clear my doubts and see if he spilled something about my EX, because I always saw my boyfriend as a sketchy mysterious person/Like if he was hiding a different life from me…., and “A” happens to know my ex boyfriend from university because they studied the same career( the thing is that “A” had no clue or never knew that “S” and I were boyfriend and girlfriend. So I
  19. Hi everyone, I met my boyfriend on Bumble and we have been dating for 3 months. He seems very serious about the relationship. We have defined our relationship (bf/gf) and we said "I love you" 2 weeks ago. He also introduced me to his dad and some other relatives when they visited a city nearby. He is just very sweet and caring and spend a lot of effort to know me. I have nothing to complain about. A week ago, he told me that he and his roommate/best friend (female) had a spontaneous trip to another state for skiing since they've always wanted to go there so they booked the trip and went
  20. So the reason I'm here is because I need some advice. I've moved to a new city and I have no one to turn to. I met this beautiful woman on the Internet last december. We immediately hit it off. We had a lot of things in common and luckily she was in my city (not the current one I'm in). I was able to meet her only once before I left for a new city due to work and same for her, our work separated us but we spent that whole day together and it was amazing. We decided to start a relationship none the less, a long distance one because we felt we had something beautiful between us to let it go to w
  21. I live alone in my apartment. I don't have roommates but I do have neighbors above, and to each side of my apartment. None below since I'm on the bottom floor of a two-story complex building. My problem is... I can't even type without my neighbors hearing me! I don't type loud (at least I don't think so), but they can hear me and they sometimes bang the walls or ceiling when I type. Once, when it was 3 am, a girl shouted from outside my closed window, "HEY!" in an annoyed tone. It's not fair I rented an apartment so that I would get privacy, as opposed to living in the dorms. (I go to

    Hello, So i started seeing/ talking to this one guy over the past couple weeks. He was obsessed with me and kept asking to take me out on a date. At the time, I found him too interested in me so i kept brushing off the dates and only call / msg him when i was drunk. Last sunday he came and met my friend and I at a restaurant for some drinks where we had a lot of fun. he slept over but we didnt do anything not even kiss and right in the morning he said he wanted to take me to dinner. a week passed and he kept txting me constantly. On friday night we got home from the bar drunk and had an af
  23. Hello! I am 24, he’s 23. We have lived together for about a year and 8 months. We have one roommate, his best friend. The first year we lived together was great, but recently it hasn’t been too great at all. Not to the point that i want to break up, but I do think some space can help us figure out if this is what we really want to do. Our lease is ending in march, and one of my best friends is looking for a roommate around the same time. I’ve also never had the experience of living with a girlfriend, and I would like to try it, for better or worse. I lived on my own for two years then
  24. Hi guys. So my boyfriend and I have been together for exactly a year now. We have a great relationship overall and really love each other and enjoy spending time together. Today he was talking about moving out of his place and finding a room for rent to move into. He knows I've been wanting to get out of my living situation, but hasn't suggested that we get a place together. He keeps suggesting that I look for a cheaper room to rent as well. A few months ago, my roommate asked us why we don't live together and I stood in silence waiting for him to say something. All he said is response to her
  25. I've really been trying to figure out what this means. Please help. Heres the background on us, we use to work together and from that we got real cool. And he would talk to me about his gf and there problems and I would talk to him about my bf at that time and our problems. About 2 months ago he quit his job and so now I barely talk to him. About a week ago I talked to him and asked how him and his girl were doing and he said he hadnt talked to her in like 3 days and I was telling him he needs to call her and he said no he wanted to wait and see what she was going to do. They've been going
