About Me

  1. My dad left me a tiny bit of life insurance money. There were 4 beneficiaries of the policy one being my dad’s youngest sister. One of the questions to claim the policy is they asked if the policyholder had at one time smoked. Now of course my aunt put yes , but that my dad quit in the 1980’s which he did. So now of course we all have to put that . My dad did not die of lung related illness but from kidney failure. Would that disqualify his policy?
  2. Hi I meant this guy last month and we went out to eat. We were just hanging out and having conversation. I am 49 yrs old woman and he is 33yrs old. We had a good time. Anyway I had sex with him after we went out that day to eat. We have had sex a few times now. I have started to get feelings for him. He has made comments lately about that he is happy that I am into him. He doesn't want me having sex with anyone else. After the first time we were together he told me that I satisfied him and not to worry about him having sex with anyone else. Last time we were together he was more passionate abo
  3. I am a very independent person and I’ve been this way all my life. I am nearing retirement. I am in a relationship now for almost a year and my boyfriend wants to get married like yesterday. I have been putting this decision off simply because I don’t even wanna deal with potential backlash for my children since they don’t leave I need to marry again although they do want to be with somebody but perhaps just living with them. I always said that I would marry again after losing my husband nine years ago if I found the right person. The person I am with has many many qualities that I need and w
  4. 19 / Female / 154cm / 48kg Medications: venlafaxine 75mg and nexplanon Haven't smoked since sickness started last Wednesday, planning to stop I was bedridden for 5 days in high fever and unable to eat anything solid, now I haven't had fever for two days but I'm overall very weak and dizzy. I tried to eat mashed potatoes (not seasoned at all) yesterday but I spent the whole day crying in pain after that because my stomach is so stubborn. What would you recommend for getting back to normal eating habits slowly but surely?
  5. I messed up. I have with the only person ever in my life to care about me for me, for the past 2 years. We have had a rocky relationship however, there were plent of good moments together. We also adotped a dog togehter about a year in (he is like both our child). She moved in with me almost instantly and we rent a house, along with my father. I have issues with drinking and smoking weed. I have not been there for her sexually like i should have been for a good while of the relationship, and admidlty could have been more affectionate. We had a 4 day seperation about 4 months ago bec
  6. Ive been talking to this girl for about 2 months now and are both into eachother. But the last few days she has been not herself and seams really blunt with me. I think its from me smoking more reguarly. I met her two days ago; everything was fine and today it has all crashed down. I asked her whats wrong and she just explained she was going through some stuff w her step dad, and that 'i dont think im what you need rn' implying something, but cant get my head around what. I dont know where her head thruthly is atm but I want things to go back to usual. All im asking is for somebody else's opin
  7. Hi everyone, I’ll try and keep this quick. I’m hoping if you can tell me if my boyfriend is being unfair to this situation. My boyfriend and I have technically been together 8 months. However, after these 8 months we broke up due to trust issues, and got back together after one and a half months apart. These issues have now been resolved and things are going great. However we’ve only been back together two weeks, so I don’t want to start a serious talk or bad argument about this. I’m just looking for some advice. This morning, my boyfriend was over at my house before he went to work. My mu
  8. So basicly she broke off with me two months ago because of indifference. We both shared different values, we could not connect great and we did not match. Those were her words tho. I declined that POV but it did not matter so it was over. Point is as follow. I felt like sh*t for a long time and still can't seem to behave normal. I feel this energy flowing constantly. I somehow still can't believe it's over and we never spoke since our last break-up talk. To be honest, i was madly in love with that girl and we had so many good times together. We had so many laughs, so many trips, we went
  9. Hi guys, I am a 31 M that is recently broken up with a 27 F after a 2 year relationship. It started off amazingly as all things do and we did so much together. We were different in our interests but similar in our desires to settle down and build a life for each other after a few months. We saved money to build our future and constantly talk about kids etc After a year and a bit things took a dip. We argued a bit. Her saying I was controlling and her showing an aggressive streak. Two trips away were almost ruined and I could not recognise the person before me. 6 months ago she was diagno
  10. So back in the middle of October I took a trip with my Boyfriend. I ended up wetting the bed, I was also bloated, stomach cramping and gaining weight fast. I saw the Urologist when I got back who blew me off. So I got a second opinion. The second urologist did imaging and saw I had a large mass in my bladder. She just went off the Ct Scan, she didn’t order any further imaging. I had a Cystoscope in November and she saw my bladder looks really good and healthy took a sample to biopsy. The only odd thing was she told me I had a large protrusion inside the bladder. But she said to fol
  11. Hi. I was in a relationship with my ex for 9 years. I ended up breaking up with her about a year ago after having long standing feelings that I could not fully commit to her. There was no cheating, no abuse, no major arguments or anything like that. It was just a gut feeling based on some concerns that I had that I could not shake. I brought my feelings up with her half way through our relationship and we eventually separated after 9 years It's been about a year since the breakup and I have since moved to another country. Now that I am single again I miss the times we had together, her
  12. Boyfriend and I have been together for 5 years, he was a smoker when we met (cigarettes and otherwise) but before we got together he had expressed the desire to quit. I have always encouraged this, but thus far it hasn't happened. He has cut down, but at this point I'm not exactly jumping for joy over this little win. Last weekend, when discussing budgeting, I told him his smoking was a problem, that I didn't like it, and that I didn't want to fund it/go to the shop for him anymore. I asked him to set aside his own smoking budget, and be in complete control of the habit, as I didn't like i
  13. Ugh I don’t really know where to start with this. I’ve been dating my girlfriend for almost a year now. I’m 18 and she’s 17 and we met through work last year. I never imagined things would work out between us but we started hanging out and we ended up dating. Early on, I had some issues because she liked to vape/smoke/ drink all of which I’m not really into and she kinda shamed me for it. Eventually she quite vaping but still talks about wanting to smoke and drink which I hate because she knows I hate it. She has become extremely attached and talks about our future together all the time, but
  14. hello, i'm [21] and she's [23] We've been dating for 3 years, we've always loved each other and been happy together. My gf however has depression and struggles with insecurity, low self-esteem. I try to be as positive as I can when I'm around her. ​ Recently she got a fulltime job and is training away for 2 months. The first 3 weeks she kept telling me she's lonely and isn't making any friends and during that time I tried my best to talk to her constantly through text, calls, etc... ​ On the 4th week suddenly she made new friends and started texting me significantly less (We tex
  15. I've been with my boyfriend for about 6 years now, on and off. A little bit of background on us: He was diagnosed with bipolar type II about a year ago, though he doesn't seek regular help for it. He takes the medication he's given but doesn't seek therapy which has always concerned me. He's tried a few therapists in the past and none really clicked with him so he's given up on the notion entirely. He's in a very unique position job wise, he's a freelancer, and when he is working, it's usually away from home. He makes a substantial amount of money for the few months of work, then spends t
  16. It's going on 5 years w 2 kids, both still in diapers... It's really been by far the hardest relationship I've been in, but the love at times has been the greatest in my life...We've both said and done things you wouldn't believe to each other except for cheating(I think) and now we're separated due to an eviction because of a big fight we had. I admit my financial situation wasn't the best and I slacked on taking care of business but that wasn't our only problem....I guess what is bothering me is the fact that something is pulling on me to leave but I feel obligated to stay with my gf and ou
  17. Basically this is how I feel sorry for how bad the English is going to be when I get angry I start to talk abit weird but you should be able to understand, and the spell check on my phone is abit weird in some parts but you'll get the jist, I just don't know what to do have a read - I don't get it serious yea I try bare hard and want to speak to her and see her but get constantly get shutdown now her phones broke so I can't speak to her for however long and she won't dm me instead cause that just won't happen I just want to know what to do man why can she just take me I swear there's somethi
  18. 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
  19. My husband and I are about to start our IVF journey to hopefully start building our family. Recently I have had this overwhelming thought that I really do not want our potential children to have anything to do with his family. To explain, his 2 brothers and 2 sisters were all placed in foster care when my husband was 6 - 12 yrs old because his parents were both heroin (among other things) addicts. His father cleaned up his act and got the kids back but it wasn't long before he was smoking pot and drinking heavily, despite having cancer. My husband, the 2nd eldest who was 14 at the time, looked
  20. I'm almost 26 and over the past couple of years I've noticed a drastic (to me) change in my face. Others say they can't notice it as much or they are being polite. I'm constantly being told I look tired or being asked if I'm ill. A colleague also saw a photo of me that was a couple of years old and was like omg what happened I do smoke, and have had a somewhat stressful few years, more recently lost a lot of weight very quickly and I did not need to lose any in the first place, I tried putting it back on but it didn't come back to my face, other girls my age don't look as haggard as me.
  21. Hi. First off, the title, I was told this by my boss 2 years ago. I never quite attributed the phrase to being relevant to describe a new relationship, taking a sh-- / finding love. Really. But now it's relevant, as my relationship's not only gone to sh-- but been flushed too. I've joined as I was surfing, came accross this site from Google. And one of the first posts I read from a member struck a chord with me. My situation is this. It's complex, messy, and gonna take a while to sort, completely messing up any healing process. First of all, I've had break ups before but ive never been hur
  22. Everyone must have read this story maybe hundreds of times, and not posted by me. Realistically speaking, I am reaching out...I am just trying to not feel as alone, though a certain- quite high- degree of loneliness is unavoidable. I don't think there is much to be done. I fell in love and feelings were not reciprocated. I can't help being in love still. He can't help not feeling the same way. We were in a relationship and that's how we ended up realizing this- i.e. that my feelings are much more intense than his. Nobody's being the bad guy here, I think, to be honest. He's still alone, I thin
  23. Hello all! Here is a brief run down. I am 22 years old and I am the youngest of 3 (my sister is 35, brother 32). I find myself constantly coming up with lies to do what I want to do. Now mind you, I am not rebellious or out of control. I take care of my obligations and I do not ask for anything. My mother and I split the bills directly down the middle. I have not been late for a payment not once. I do my homework, I go to work, I keep the house clean, I have my own gas, pay my own insurance. I am totally independent. The reason why I live with my mother is because I can save money while try
  24. Me (24 | M) hooked up with this girl (25 | F) a couple weeks ago at the local bar. We didn't go "all the way" that first night (no condom). We had a great time drinking and dancing and ended up going back to her place. I left in the morning. She told me to call her "Snake" but I knew we went to the same high school and later found her name in an old yearbook. I went back to her place a couple days later and we had sex. It wasn't the most amazing thing ever, but I'd say it went alright. I'd say we definitely had some sexual chemistry but that was just the tip of the iceberg. Since then I have s
  25. Hi guys here is my story I was seeing this girl for nearly 3 months. Our relationship was strange to say the least. I thought she was a shy awkward person as she told me but I was played. I think I may have been drugged (rhyipnole) as I remember waking up on the floor of her place with a guy in the room saying why am I in the bed ect. I remember a guy dropping her off at my house and picking her up, once I stopped the car she got out of mine and got into his car and I remembered all this stuff months after. I lost a lot of weight and remember feeling like I was on a comedown some days afte
