Anyone up for a chat?
I went to the park and have a free date night
What kindness do you like to be shown in a relationship?
I’m really struggling right now…
I’m stressed out and feel like I’m trapped in every way.
So I hate dating sites, it’s awkward as hell. But I met a girl, we chatted a lot by text, we met up initially, I really enjoyed it, we met up a second time, I liked her more. Then she says she isn’t feeling it and now it’s all over. Sounds pathetic on my part, as she has done nothing wrong, but I just feel so deflated. I mean, yeh im not relaxed, because it’s a date! As a guy, I can’t flirt to hard for being possibly creepy, I don’t want to act like an idiot, I don’t want to come across too strong as that might put her off, so I’m just stuck feeling awkward as hell. I thought for two dates from meeting a total stranger, we were building report, but apparently, that was enough time to tell I wasn’t right… why is dating so hard?!!
It's important to grow in life. Just make sure it doesn't lead to growing apart.
I have been seeing a guy for almost 2 months. I got excited for him and yes, we fell for each other. He lives 2 hrs from me. I would visited him for 3 weekends but he is studying to be an anesthetist and he told me his schedule would get busy. He gave me a ring, and we communicated before he went through his rotation. I felt he was the one. He started the program on Monday and we talk on the phone for maybe 15 minutes per day since and he hasn’t really been texting anymore. He would text good morning every day but since he hasn’t. I wanted to ask him if he still feels the same way about our relationship but I’m scared and I also don’t want to give him added stress. But I’m wondering if he is using his rotation as excuse to avoid me. We don’t live very close so I can’t really tell what’s happening on his side of the world. Is it over? Am I being impatient? Am I being inconsiderate? Do medical students have it really hard that he may just need a break? Our conversations don’t seem genuine anymore and I’m wondering if I’m wasting my time waiting for him.
I just hope there’s a guy out there for me. I’ve been single for 12 years and it’s been very painful and lonely. I hate modern dating and dating apps. So I don’t waste my time with them since I’ve tried them before and they don’t work for me. I just hope all this waiting can really pay off eventually. I don’t want to be alone for the rest of my life
Am I crazy for being mad? Before I met my boyfriend, I had always been very adamant about being with someone who didn’t travel for work. I have an anxious attachment style and did not want my partner to travel far away for days on end leaving me alone for multiple days. I did not want that in a partner or father to my children. It was so important that I even wrote it down in my journal amongst other things I would want or not want in a partner (to help me become more decisive of what I require in a partner). I have even ended dating people when I found out that their jobs required them to travel religiously. My boyfriend now has a great remote job that asks him to go on mandatory team building retreats once or twice a year for a few days where they have campfires, scavenger hunts, key note speakers, live concerts, skiing, dinners, drinks, etc. It’s not every day so it’s not a complete deal breaker for me but I’m having trouble bending and being calm and happy about it. I know rationally that it isn’t a big deal but for someone with my personality it’s really hard to cope with. Being as I have some mental health battles such as trauma, Generalized Anxiety D. OCD and Seasonal depression amongst others that aren’t diagnosed, it’s very very hard for me mentally to be able to adjust. It isn’t just my boyfriend, if I were with anyone I would feel this way. Is this a “you gotta try to work through this cuz it’s a you problem” type of situation or a “you have every right to your wants and needs and this relationship just seems like it isn’t the right fit for your personality” type of situation?
Not sure if this is the right place to say this. But a girl really likes me, but I do not think that she is a proper match for me. I do not see any chemistry between us. I do not want to hurt them, but I am afraid when the day comes when she asks me out I will hurt her by rejecting her proposition. They are not a bad person, just a little pushy sometimes.
I got the number of beautiful woman at my job who just started working there about a month ago. Im about to leave my job by the end of next week to start a new better paying job so i thought i should try to get her number in which i did! We've only been talking a day but she stopped texting me after i offered to take it her out with everything being on me. How long should i wait until i text her again or should i let her text me since im leff on read? I really dont want to make any mistakes. She's cool af and im confident i can be more attractive to her if i just get a date. I hate textin but i know its important until i get a secured date
So there have been several occasions where me and my bf have gone on holiday and ended up drunk and him getting extremely angry then getting in trouble. In those instances I’ve always gotten him out of trouble (I’m realising that he is not my responsibility) however we are going on holiday again soon and we’re sharing the same living space and I’m worried that it will be the same thing again. I have tried to speak to him about it but he felt like I was shaming him. He doesn’t drink all the time but when he does drink spirits it can go very bad (as it would with many people) has anyone been in the situation before?
Do ultimatums work or should I just break up with them ?

Hi everybody! Im new here but I’m always happy to talk relationship stuff so please reach out if you’d like to connect! A little about me: since my last monogamous LTR I’ve been doing the poly thing and dating several people. I’d still like to find a primary partner, but haven’t decided if I want to date monogamously again. Right now I’m just meeting people and seeing what’s out there. Hope to have some interesting conversations with y’all!
My fiancées mother has never liked me she hasn’t said a word to me in over 5 years and also never been in the same room as her in a longer amount of time because I’m engaged to her daughter we’ve been together for 7 years. The other day she said that even if I was a prophet of Allah (she’s Muslim) she would still not like me. But I always here the nice side to her from my fiancée and her siblings who do talk to me but they also don’t tell their parents either but it just bothers me that she rejects me THAT much that she uses religion to express how much she hates me

What if I told you that by learning and practicing one skill you could solve 50% or more of the misunderstandings that happen everyday. It’s true! Listening is key to all effective communication. Without the ability to listen effectively, messages are easily misunderstood. Join us at Joyful Living Monday morning at 9 central time as we listen and learn.
So funny story ish…. Sister 1 and twin sister I dated sister 1 girl last year, we dated for 5 months, i broke up with her 3 days before our 6 months and now 6 months later Me and her twin have thing going on… During the time i was dating sister 1, me and her twin couldn’t stand each other because she couldn’t mind her business, But now that i broke up with sister 1 i made peace with the twin because there’s no point of having beef for the rest of our lives. Apparently Sister 1 and twin sister made this “rule” that they date each other’s ex’s, even their mom is into that rules too. I feel like i’m an exception because it’s like she told me, we’ll have to keep this on the low and somewhat of a secret so she doesn’t end up hurting her sisters 1 feelings even tho sister 1 hates me… because we had a nasty after break up (another long story) But i feel like this might work we’re still testing the waters with each other. But i can tell she’s into me because she more touchy with me that she was before we had thing etc.
Would u find weird if ur bf texts ur early goodnight and then texts u good morning at noon lol when he usually texts good morning around 8-9 am..
Sent a text to my ex basically hinting that i want to be friends again. It’s risky because if she replies in a negative way it could hurt my feelings and I probably should’ve just left it alone.
