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 know that for many women it doesn't matter but for me it does! I want the guy to open the car door for me. How do I make him know without actually telling him (which would be weird because we have just gone on one date) Why doesn't he do it? I mean to open the car door when I'm about to get in the car. Any suggestions? Also why would he prefer to text instead of calling?? I"m shy but he is not..
  3. Okay so recently I have started to notice that my girlfriend has decided to call me every night before she goes to bed which kind of annoys me since she knows I have a boat load of homework and things to study for each night since I'm taking two high level maths and an online course. She could tell I didn't want to talk on the phone the other night because she noticed how I rushed the conversation. I am not trying to be mean to her but i'd prefer just to text her that way I can focus and multitask more efficiently. She gets very upset if I don't say I love you back to her as well even though s
  4. Hello I haven't been on here in a while. First of all I have previously been in relationships where I have not been respected and I am growing more aware. Few months ago, I took up exercising in the local park- its so beautiful and I like going to clear my head and think things through and be in nature. During my jogs, I met a lady who struck up conversation, she lives locally and we struck up a friendship, she seemed lovely- I used to go 4 x a week, but I said we could jog together on the weekends when I'm a little more relaxed about time as weekdays I'm on a routine. Sinc
  5. So I (35M) met a very nice girl on Tinder 1,5 months ago. We already knew each other from over 10 years ago but have not talked since we were younger. Our conversation was awesome from the very beginning, she initiated conversations, shared pictures of her daily life etc. After the first date she said she definately wanted to meet again and so we did. I spent a evening and night with her (no sex) and it was wonderful, I actually think I let myself fall in love with her at that point. I thought we were moving in a good direction but I started to get other thoughts very soon. After I spent
  6. Hello everyone, This is my first post, I'm going through a tough patch. Im sure some of you experienced this and can help. Im 25 yr old M. I was with my "ex" for 1 year and 2 months. So not so long, but to keep it short she had broken up with me because I had a tough few months working on my new business and really putting in a lot of hours into work and not into our relationship. She ended things in the beginning of Sept, and Beg of November I decided to text her and give it one last chance. Im posting the texts here. let me know what you guys think!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
  7. Hi all . I in the past was in contact with an old friend . he told me that he could not talk to me anymore because I’m married. Well he started contact with him again . with in the past month he would text me randomly . and his texts were very short . So my birthday just passed and he sent me a really cute birthday message . Later that evening we were texting each other and catching up for two hours . He said that he missed me. When I tried to talk to him two days later . I got no response. He has done things like this all month but will respond when he wants to . He also talked about getting
  8. Hello all, To be honest, this post may not give me the answers I need but everyone here has always been so helpful. As some may remember I have been in a relationship that I felt wasn't really fulfilling its potential. I wanted things to speed.up a little, she wanted things to stay slow. Well over the past few months , it started to pick up again. We saw more of each other, spoke more often on the phone and all was going ok. However in the past few weeks she started to go quiet again then yesterday she ended it with me. In a way, I'm cool with it as it means I no longer have to be
  9. here's something i said i wouldnt do on another post and that's start a journal. ---lies. im bored, lonely and think it would be good to let out feelings and get things off my chest. i will be rambling. it will be random. but it will be real. about me; im 31, female, and i live in atlanta. i work for myself and dont have alot of friends. the ones i do have i dont hang with like that. this makes my life very isolated. when i was younger this didnt bother me but now it does. im in a relationship now for 4 yrs. with a guy we will call chad. he works alot and doesnt make time for me like he sho
  10. TW: Self Harm So I've (22F) been dating this guy (23M) for 5 months now. The first 4 months were absolutely perfect, and though we definitely had some difference in perspective/upbringing we always still had great conversation and time together. That is until a few months ago, both him and I feel very strongly about our political beliefs, and on one particular night we got into a bit of a political argument. For the most part I'm okay with political differences, but not when it comes to what I believe are basic human rights. We were discussing immigration and the occurrence of forced s
  11. Hi all, I was wondering if someone out there could help me out with this. I’m sure it’s all in my head but would appreciate others thoughts. I’ve known my girlfriend as a friend for over a decade. We met randomly in a bar and hit it off straight away. Within the last year we got closer and romantically involved. Everything was amazing at first. Texting all the time, texting into the early hours, all that mushy good stuff in a new relationship. I knew it wouldn’t last forever. So when it tailed off and she became a bit less chatty and would leave long gaps between replies, I wasn’t s
  12. Why do some guys wait for you to initiate, make plans or even text first? I have been on 3 dates in the past month and it's the same rigomor each time. Connections are really good, lots of talking, smiling and even an offer to hang out again, but no date set. They sit back and wait for you to get in touch & offer to meet up again. In 2 cases the guys sounded super enthused & the dates go great. But I do all the leading. Isn't that the man's job?
  13. Sorry guys it's me again. You can read my old posts to see how much of a mess I am. I don't even mean to get into these situations. It's my friend again. We didn't talk for months, because of something stupid. I didn't block him, but I erased his number and unfriended, just to let myself get over him. But he's back, again, and for a few weeks, I was doing really well staying indifferent. I didn't text him or call him, if he texted, I would answer, but you know, I wasn't like I usually am. I did so good for awhile. And even now, I still have my guard up, but it's getting really har
  14. So bit of a background: Back in April my ex broke up with me using the excuse that Covid was bad in our area and that he promised his ex-wife that he wouldn’t see anyone or else he wouldn’t be able to see his kids. This was out of left field for me, I thought we were doing well and he seemed happy with me. We had been dating 7 months and were serious (his words), he knew I wanted children and said he would be on board with that because he loved me and wanted to make me happy (he’s in his late 40’s and looking back on it I don’t think he really wanted anymore kids). Anyway after
  15. Hi everyone! So I have a really good friend I’ve known for few years, we met at work he was actually my manager until I got a promotion in another dept. We’ve been friends since early 2014. While working for the same company we got to know each other and became close friends, talked about everything from work to family issues. It just happened that I was in a really bad abusive marriage, he helped me through it till I divorced early 2016, he was going through marriage problems as well that ended in a legal separation. I ended up leaving the company accepting a better position with more pay,
  16. A 4-month long saga between me (37m) and my girlfriend of the past six years (28F) just came to an end last night. I'll say up front that I appreciate any advice, and if you wanna beat up on me for whatever reason, go for it. I know I'm not blameless, but I also know I'm not solely to blame. I'm just looking to move forward and learn to love and value myself again. There's a thread I started back in August that outlines the fight that started all of this, so you can read that if you want. I'll just pick this up from there because it helps me to write and work through it. She and
  17. My girlfriend and i, both 27years, have been dating for 3years and hope to marry soon. A year ago her old schoolmate staying abroad got in touch with her prior to his visiting home. His conversations appeared flirty, i made my reservations known and was told by her im overreacting. During his 1month visit, they had a couple of outings(with other old mates) including a night out at the club. This was an issue because she refused going to a nightclub with me several times for some religious bs or whatever. Her excuse here was that another lady friend really wanted to go too and she didnt wa
  18. I don't understand. I am hurt, yes. Why do they do that? I don't understand men. I went and got involved emotionally. I have crushed on a man for awhile. It is a coworker. I know I sound like I'm 17. I'm not talking about overt flirting or anything. When we were in the office, I did catch a vibe, but I also got mixed signals...there seemed to be attraction, then not...I think all of us can relate to that. Things advanced. We started texting outside work. It turns out this "vibe" was accurate. I was pretty excited and happy about it. Yes, I know, work relationships are
  19. I met a friend though xbox over 8 years ago, me and her have been talking every since, i decided to meet up with her finally after 8 years and we hit it off, we had so much more in common than i thought. I didnt try anything on with her when was there, because i actually just enjoyed her company, done a lot of nice things though looking back at it and even paid for dinner, but came home and got so confused. May of over thought things i really dont know, but obviously something changed, because before i was there we were talking daily, she would send me pics and videos daily of her, inc on
  20. Hi I’m in relationship with over 3 years with a lady. And she lives abroad so different cultures etc. She always says things to hurt me and I keep telling her to stop. It’s like she don’t care. Now I do everything for this lady Financial support Holidays etc. If I say to her your words are hurting me she always says I’m not hurting you. Now we had o huge argument the other night and I hung up the phone. She message me next day saying good morning i saw the message but haven’t opened it. I hope this silent treatment will work. Because previous arguments I just text her back. And all is ok for f
  21. Hi guys! It’s been a long time since I posted here & I have been through some relationships that really taught me a lot.. Some of these things were to really be careful with trusting & opening up to just any guy.. I’m going to tell you briefly about my past relationship just so you could judge better for the present one! (I’m really sorry this is going to be looong but I’m a sucker for details..) I don’t know if I mentioned before that I wasn’t the type to be that serious in relationships (although I’ve always really wanted a serious one) & the reason I was like that is beca
  22. First off, I will start by saying that everything I describe is the truth including my own faults during the "situationship" This may be a long read but I hope there is at least one person out there who has walked in my shoes to help me understand. I am a 45 woman who has been divorced for 5 years. I had a nice marriage, I was just not" in love" so we divorced and remained friends. What has transpired over the past 5 years of dating has been nightmare after nightmare. My self esteem was so low that I allowed a narcissist in to my life only to turn my world upside down. I still carry bitte
  23. So there is this guy that I added on facebook. (We are 800km away but in the same country) I am in my late twenties. Our families are friends but he doesn't seem to remember me. Anyway, we started talking and he was the one that initiated calling me. We talked about everything and nothing. He kept bugging me about why I reached out to him and that I was maybe flirting with him and of course, I brushed it off with laughs... Then, out of the blue, he just stopped contacting me but still checking my stories. I initiated contact but nothing from his side, taking into account that it's a very b
  24. We are in a long distance relationship for 1 year already. She is amazing, she makes me a better person and I really love her. I know is the same for her since she told me she has never loved anybody as much as she does to me. However, we are always having conflicts over the same stuff again and again. She is always having guys flirting with her, sometimes she even hangs out alone with the guys. I told her how uncomfortable it makes me but she told me that she doesnt like them but she only does it because they pay her the food and icecreams. I was really uncomfortable but learned to trust her
  25. Back in 2013 a girl ran into a me on a festival. Both severely drunk we had a chat for about 30 minutes. We've shared facebook and so some time after the festival had ended, we started to communicate via whatsapp, text only. We have never seen each other ever again, although, till a few days ago we were still talking to each other via WA. In the past years we've talked a lot, mostly about relationships, travelling, school / work, all the fun stuff, you name it. Through out the years there have been occasions in where she invited me to come over to a party / gathering / what ever.
