So I could use some advice on trying to date again. I tried in college and had a terrible experience with trying to date someone. A girl on the swim team asked me out and I said yes we stayed in my dorm room ordered pizza and had a great time then she completely ignored me on campus pretended I didn’t exist I didn’t understand why she would do that so I moved on the before winter break she apologized said she was going through a rough time and that she really like me and I forgave her. So over winter break she doesn’t answer any of my text or calls and one day her girlfriend called telling me to leave her alone or else. Becca then texted me saying that I was scary and that I didn’t know how to take a hint and she told her girlfriend it was all my fault and that I came on to her she then told me I would never meet anyone because I was too weird and no one would love me that was five years ago and I haven’t dated anyone since I feel like an idiot I gave someone that kind of power over me.

Can anyone chat? I'm having a bad dysphoria crisis and I need some help
Imagine being attracted to someone but never being able to tell her how I feel Because it will make me look like an idiot Yes, that’s what it’s like for me Until I change my gender and become the beautiful person I adore
This world is too horrible One gender is attracted to looks and finding the person cute While the other just cares about their status and money I wish I could just become a lesbian already; no one really loves the male form. I hate my body so much because I know it is the reason I’m so lonely. Yes it sounds like I’m crazy but that’s probably because I am
Trigger words: sexual, and a graphic mental health story revolving someone with suicidal thoughts (everyone is fine, no worries, this is a story from the past) Hey everyone, I'm having a major relationship crisis and really need guidance and support. For many years, I've been physically attracted to women.... I've never really been physically attracted to men. I always thought I was gay. But I have this guy friend who I've known since I was 11.. we are very close and he was one of my closest friends. We have had many fights but that's because he was bullied in school and lost faith in humanity and had some anger issues.. but I have helped him through that and have stayed by his side through it all, he had an ex that cheated on him and did bad things... So his issues were because of what he went through. I believed in his potential to become better and I knew deep down he had a good heart. He is now the person I always knew he could be. Throughout the year of quarantine and the pandemic, him and I were video chatting every day and our conversations took a turn. We started having sexual/ physical conversations and that developed over the past year. We had a lot of physical tension between us. Initially I just wanted to be friends with benefits because of the sexual attraction I had towards him at the same time of being confused about my sexual orientation and still thinking about women. He did not like that and he said the only way we can be together is if he can have all of me and not just some of me. I had dating apps and I had my freedom. But something hit me. The physical tension was too strong for him, could not handle it, and thought maybe something is there with us, I agreed to start dating him, deleted all my dating apps, committed to him fully as a girlfriend. We have been together for 1 month so far and everything has been great until now... I was honest with him from the start that I had feelings for him but was still confused about my sexual orientation and that was not a problem for him and said we should still give us a chance. Time passed and I convinced myself I was in love with him. He fell in love with me and has already expressed he wants to marry me some day and he wants me to be his forever .... but I told him I am not ready to make that decision. He said he would not ask for a few years. But recently I have been going through a never ending battle in my mind, feel like something is missing.... I think about women a lot, I have never gotten the chance to try being with a girl.... But now I'm in a serious relationship. Years ago this guy was going to attempt to take his life because of something horrible his ex did, but he had a good friend to help him through that time. He is doing better especially now that he is happily with me... But I kind of feel responsible for his life, if I did break things off for whatever reason to try with a girl or something, I do not feel like anyone understands how hard this is for me. I had a friend saying to me that it would be wrong to continue dating him if I know I'm not fully into it... The trouble is, I really don't know. He has already seen "all of me" if you know what I mean and out of everyone I have never in my life felt comfortable showing someone all of me. I feel I can be my complete self around him...he always makes me laugh, smile, writes me daily romantic and sweet notes regarding how much I mean to him every morning. He is the perfect boyfriend and he checks off all the boxes of what I want to see in a partner. The only problem is gender...I feel like if he was a woman I would marry this person today. But because he is a man I have some doubts. But the fact that he has seen all of me, and I did not hesitate to delete all my dating apps and commit fully to him as a girlfriend... that has to say something right? Not too long ago he asked me about our first date and he wanted to make sure I was in it for the right reason. Not just the physical part but for him as a person. In that moment I paused because I have been obsessed over physical things because I have been lacking it for so long. I crave his touch. But the bottom line is I chose him, and now I'm questioning everything, and I feel responsible for his life if anything bad happens because of me if I did decide to go the other way, but the trouble is, how can I be sexually attracted to a man if I thought I was gay ... do I really love this man.... I do not understand... what all my feelings are... I am confused, stressed and overwhelmed and feel like no one understands me right now because this is just so complicated. My decision is going to impact his life and I do not understand all the back and forth thoughts in my head... If someone can please help shine a light on my situation.... I would be so grateful. I feel so lost, and this situation is one of the most stressful situations I have endured in my whole life. There is no one on earth besides my mother that loves me as much as him, and I'm having trouble deciphering if I feel the same. Thank you so much for reading... if you made it here.... that is a true miracle because I wrote a book basically 😂😂thank you so much!!!!!!!!

I’m addicted to a gay dating app called grindr. It’s starting to hurt me and I just know I’m not alone? Am I? When i tell anyone on there I feel, they just act like it’s not real. Anyone want to have a conversation about this

Idk if anyone on here has been through this but - I recently came out as gay after coming out of a relationship with a guy .. it was so refreshing at first to finally be able to be myself , but I find myself missing the company . I was with him for 5 years and ig after all of those years I got used to being with someone .. I don’t want to be with him obviously but it’s hard to be alone after being with someone that long . Waking up to someone everyday .. it’s hard . I could definitely use some wise words rn .
Hi. I am coming to you all as a completely broken person. I identify as a woman, I am a cys woman. But I feel like a man. And I don’t understand. My entire life I’ve had to assume the masculine role of a male. I’ve had to protect myself, provide for myself, and rely solely on myself. I very masculine facial features. I feel confused and I don’t understand. I feel very sad and misunderstood. I don’t connect with “men” the way I would want to. It feels very forced now and sex makes me cringe. Has anyone else been here before? Where do I start? I don’t understand anything about myself anymore.

I found something that works for myself. I've bought a stethoscope and have been listening to my heart during the day and it calms me down. I hope one day to use it on a person and see how it goes. I know, it might sound weird but it helps. I'm a 28 year old transguy ftm looking to speak about new coping still and how not be loneliness.
Any Canadians here I can chat with?
Hello everyone! I am from Canada..Montréal
Hi everyone, I'm here if anyone ever wants to chat. Don't worry about the timing. I'm in British Summer Time and will reply in the day if I get something overnight.
🛑PLEASE READ🛑 I’m sorry it’s long . I have no one to tell. I need to get it out. Some months ago I had a friend asked me about my sexuality. I don’t know what it is yet and I have never come out or talked about it. She said she didn’t know I was BI. At the time I wasn’t sure where she got that from. A few nights ago we talked. It’s important I tell you we did have some drinks. She says broke up with her boyfriend. He seemed as if he never liked me.I never knew why but she ended up telling me it might have been because something happened with a girl before..I don’t know that to think about what that means. Then tells me she is taking to a girl right now. The night keeps going and she asked me again about my sexuality. I told her I don’t know I have never been with a girl.I think I would try but I just don’t know right now. She tells me same..next she asked me if I would found her attractive if I was. I say yeah I just honestly thought she was asking because of the girl she was talking to. Maybe she just needed someone to relate to so I do think anything of it. What happened next is why I’m confused about everything. We start to talk about reasons why we haven’t talked to or been with a girl.mostly because I just kinda waiting for it to happen.she then makes a comment on trying something with me... says she wants to tell me something. Said never mind I don’t want to be awkward. I don’t know what to think. Has she liked me this whole time. Is this why her ex didn’t like me ? Or do you think it was because the drinks
Hi , I was just wondering if anyone has been in the same boat as me and could give some advice ? I feel like I’m questioning my sexuality way too late, I’ve been married almost 3 years now but am only just realising that I may be attracted to girls too.. my husband understands but I am way too nervous to talk to anyone else about it
