“I need to get over my ex”

I broke up with my ex-boyfriend almost 2 years ago. We were dating for 2.5 years, mostly a long distance relationship. I found out that he went on a business trip with an female co-worker and they shared the same room. When I asked him why he didn’t tell me, he said there were 2 beds and they didn’t do anything.

Long story short, we broke up, he blocked my Facebook and still does. After a year or so, he emailed me to catch up, but I said nothing. Anyway, I’m dating my current boyfriend for almost a year now and we are very happily in love. However, whenever it came to him or I saw his Instagram post and his girlfriends, there is a feeling that I cannot describe. But I know it’s definitely not love, not friendship, nor happiness.

So I want to ask for advice how to get rid of that feeling, because I know it is unfair for my boyfriend, if my mind still thinks about my ex, even just for 1 sec. I don’t want to see my ex ever again if by any chance we meet, I want myself to walk past him like I don’t know who he is. Please give me some advice.

“I can’t choose between the two people I love”

Since I was about 14, I met this guy at a party my friend threw. We clicked immediately, started talking and dating right away. It was innocent and harmless since we were so young. For the next 4 years we still managed to keep contact and be together even though we never formally “dated,” but we still consider each other our first girlfriend and boyfriend.

He got sent away to a boarding school last year and I was traumatized losing him from my life, I thought he’d always be there for when I was ready to be really serious with him, as during those 4 years he never really moved on or had eyes for anyone else. I saw other people but it lasted a quick month because I never found that “click” again. Continue reading

“I don’t think my boyfriend is in love with me”

I have been dating my boyfriend for 9 months now. We are both in our late 20s. The relationship started off great but now I feel like we hit a plateau and it is not progressing. We have both had many stressors in our lives since we started dating so I don’t think we have had it easy.

Our past relationship experiences are quite different. We both have had a serious long term relationships except my experience was positive and his experience wasn’t. Many friends have told me that his last relationship was awful and it had a negative affect on him. He also believes it has created some emotional baggage for him. He has told me that he often feels closed off. Continue reading

“He used to be the man of my dreams”

I’ve been in a relationship for 10 years. I am currently 26. When I was a teenager, he was the man of my dreams, but as we aged and matured, we’ve became roommates that hold each other down from actual love possibilities, for convenience of our children and living situation.

He feels differently, though. This weekend we had an argument about something stupid. And he left. I figured a hour or two to blow off steam. But when I woke at 5 am, he was nowhere to be found. Instant panic attack. I called , phone’s off …

He strolled in at 2 pm. After hours of mixed emotions and thoughts of where he could possibly be. He told me he was at the hospital. I’ve already basically premeditated his funeral, mentally prepared to be a single mom, and had a partial break down. Inside , the damage was done. He left. He didn’t call. He turned his phone off. I wrote him a proper notice to leave , and slept alone last night. Continue reading

mixed feelings

hi, I don’t even know where to start, it’s quite confusing really. I guess I will start with me hating this person to death, then after a bit I started growing to like them, a lot. We are co-workers, he is a couple months younger than I am, we have a love/hate thing going on, like sometimes we loath each other and sometimes we flirt with each other, without even realising it. Our other co-workers see it, but we deny it. I’m not sure he knows I like him, and I think he sorta likes me back. The only problem is, his sister is one of the managers at my work, so there are limitations, meaning we can never be together. I don’t know what to do, he is always in my head, can’t seem to get him out, no matter how hard I try. We are both teenagers, I’m 17. Please help me out in this situation, I don’t know how much longer I can go without telling him that I like him and not get embarrassed and humiliated, or being fired by his sister..
