How to you get from dating to a relationship?
I have been single for 11 years now. Its lonely. I have dated many guys, but its never progressed into a relationship. As the common denominator, I believe I must be doing something wrong, but I am so confused. I have been 'ghosted' so many times, I should be used to it by now, but it just seems to hurt more and more everytime it happens. For example, I met this guy a month ago. Things were going great and I really like him. He had asked me to meet his parents and last weekend I met about 30 of his friends, but I haven't heard from him since. I mean, barely. I texted him a couple of times and he called and left me a message to the effect of "hey, I've been working night and day, I'm not sure if you're working but if you get a break give me a call, I'd love to hear from ya". So I called back the next day, and he sent me to voicemail after the 1st ring. And I haven't heard back. So based on experience, I am being ghosted. I just don't know what I did and it really bothers me. I feel like I haven't been given enough of a chance. I am critically analiyzing all of my actions. Was it because I occasionally teased him? Was it because I was too shy and quiet when I was put in a room of 30 strangers, all of which he knew but I didn't? Its weird because he was affectionate towards me the whole time.. His friend even told me a story about him telling her he liked me. But at the end of that day, he didn't talk about when we'd see eachother next and he didn't tell me to text him when I got home, which he usually did. I know I am overthinking it... but at the same time, I desperately want to know where I am going wrong because this seems to be a painful trend for me. Did his friends not like me? Did he figure out that I have low self esteem when I chuckled at his compliment? Ugg. Please help!! Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong??
My fiance had sex with me while I was asleep this morning. I know because I dreamed about it and then later this morning when we were both awake I asked him if we had done anything and he goes "just on the outside."I've told him before I do not want to have sex while asleep. I just talked to him literally last night about how I want to be more in control of my sexual encounters. He was receptive....
Do all men cheat? Can some men seriously actually get married and stay married their whole lives, only having sex with one woman and still be happy? Can some men actually say no to a seductive woman?This has nothing to do with my recent breakup. I'm just curious
So I dont even know where to start. I have other posts that I have explained in pretty great detail how my marriage has been. Rocky is probably an understatement. I left him last summer and then stupidly took him back. I was trying to raise our 3 kids literally on my income and nothing more which I was doing successfully. However, I did not have support here at all that could take my kids to...
I knew this guy for 7 years but was in love with for 5, we are not together anymore. He has a girlfriend now but it's hard for me to move on, I don't know what to do.
