    Need a reality check...Is this normal?

    5
    I’m having a hard time getting over someone that I have fallen for over the past 9 months. What bothers me is that it’s someone who is insulting when he is angry (i.e. name calling or negative), which I don’t take personally as I get that it’s more about him managing his anger than about me. On paper, this wouldn’t even be someone I’d give a second glance at in this respect ,...

    How should I handle this ?

    5
       So, my goal for this relationship is not to take a lot of crap, because typically I am SO patient that it eventually becomes destructive to me. In every serious relationship I had my patience and tolerance enabled my partners to eventually disregard my needs and wants.  This time I want it to be different, but I don't want to come off aggressive either.     In short, I wanted to visit a...

    he was restraining his 5 yr old daughter

    Hi everyone,I was at my boyfriend's house last night, and brought over homemade dough for everyone to make their own pizzas (including my 10yr old daughter). He was mostly outside with his friend, while my daughter and I were inside helping his daughter make her pizza etc. Later that night his daughter was snuggling with myself and my daughter and he scooped her up wanting her to snuggle with him...

    My struggles

     I really want to have a great relationship which I'm sure would make me happy, but whenever I fall in love...I fall too deep I guess and most times the people I love don't love me back.

    Abuse

    my name is Sam and I'm currently in what I think is an emotionally abusive relationship, he has never directly hit me although he has threatened to or threw stuff at me. My partner is on the Autism spectrum and doesn't cope with his emotions very well, especially when angry. I sometimes think that maybe I'm the one who needs to cope better with his condition and that he can't help acting the way...

    Greysexual or just low sex drive?

    So I came across the term greysexual and I felt I related but wasn't sure if I just had a low sex drive. My boyfriend and I aren't physical very often because it tends to make me uncomfortable and it bothers him more and more. I don't really know what to do about it or how to work on it.

    anxiety with physical affection

    6
    While I long for a long-term partner, I find it hard to even find casual dates as it takes a lot for me to comfortable with physical comfort. It doesn't help that my dating pool is 10x smaller due to being a lesbian. I'm 22 and everyone my age seems to be settling down or at least working towards a long turn relationship, but these anxieties with physical affection makes it difficult. I only like...

    How to reel in my sensitivity a bit

    My boyfriend has recently made little jokes here and there about me being around all the time. I met some friends after work for drinks yesterday and he said he may go somewhere else when he was done with work. He's been a little quiet lately, so I asked if everything was okay. He said that we tend to do everything together every time and he just wanted to shake things up a bit. He had been...

    The end?

    My fiancée of 4 years is planning on leaving me. Now. When I finally start showing some improvement. She's depressed too. I told her to give her antidepressants (SSRIs) a chance to build up in her system...that she won't feel like this forever. But I don't think she's listening. I feel like I'm running out of time...
