    Me and my boyfriend have been together

    I've been with the father of my children

    for 11 years now. I was 13 when I met him, we grew up together... & soon I'll be 25 in a few months. I'm confused about where we stand in our relationship. I don't know why marriage is such an important thing to me, but it is. Maybe because he hasn't asked me. We have never been...

    So my girlfriend doesn't respond to my texts

    and I know she sees them because it tells me when she was on. And apparently she has time to post stuff on instagram. I haven't talked to her in over a week. I don't know what to do.

    last night I texted my friend something about

    my boyfriend and I told her not to tell him because I was just joking when I said it, and I didn't mean for it to hurt it when he found out because his friend told him. he freaked out on me last night saying I'm irresponsible, and that he'd never do something like that. I also...

    So I've been talking with this girl

    for a month. Only hung out once. It's hard to hangout, since she's usually busy with other friends and stuff. She's like 15 miles away though, so it's a bit rough to visit and we gotta plan everything nonetheless. But to me, it's worth it. I'm just not sure if she feels the same...

    I am dating a guy who lives 2 hours away,

    and I was happy until this guy who lives only about 15-20 mins away said he liked me and he could see me everyday and all that. I'm so confused and it's frustrating.

    Just curious about what people think: When

    does the honeymoon phase end? And how long do you think they typically run? I know that all relationships are different, I'm just asking for any opinions given that disclaimer.

    Torn.

    There is way to much to be said about my relationship. We've been together two years now. I was so blinded by the "in love high" that many of us experience when we first meet that special person. I connected with him, and went with the flow. I ended up here. In some cases, a lot...

    we have a terrible and abusive past and I know it isn't right and I feel more sad than happy with him most days. It's really toxic but I just can't leave at all. I try and I end up feeling alone and missing him so I can't ever do it. I really want to but it's so difficult. I...

    I feel like I'm sitting on the fence.

    I don't know if I should stay content where I am and not feel completely happy or satisfied or if I should risk it all and be alone. The idea of a new experience or life change sounds desirable...although I'm afraid of the bad that could happen with a blank canvas and no one...

    For most of the first year of dating my bf,

    I love him but also hate him?

    Like one day I have so much fun and can't imagine not being with him, but then the next everything he does annoys me and I can't be bothered with it. And I never have an interest in sleeping with him which annoys him. I know it's unfair on him. What can I do

    Different Is Scary Sometimes

    I know what a healthy relationship is, but apparently I am confused by it. I'm used to the sort of man that has to be all affectionate in public in order to tell everyone that I am his and in turn gets upset when attention of any kind is payed to another man. Of course this is a...
