    Perhaps talking is the solution,

    or actually being silent when together with your spouse or partner is another way of communicating.

    My bf and I have been together

    for a long time! Our relationship is amazing! But I get jealous and angry a lot! This girl is always talking to him and flirting and now he is going to start up at the same gym as him!! She is always making jokes with him and laughing together! What should I do?

    So, long story short.

    I've never met this man of my dreams whom I'm completely in love with. We both are. Turns out we found out we are second cousins once removed. So we share a great grandmother. Is this bad? I've researched and researched and find contradicting answers. It just hurts really bad...

    The depression hits me outa nowhere.

    Idk what to do. I can't be as happy as I used to be. Sometimes I think I have to do things that make other people unhappy just to make me happy. I don't want to do that to anyone. I just keep asking myself, is it worth it to stay with him if I'm in love with him and he doesn't...

    It'S Impossible

    So. Tough times. I've tried to break up with him twice, but he wasn't having it, and he pursuaded me to stay with him. Well, not this time. He can see a future with me, whereas I am just not ready for a serious relationship, no matter how crap and evil I sound, I would be living...

    Ever since my boyfriend told me he loved me the

    first time, he's said he wanted to be together forever. I was so surprised. I thought guys were all afraid of commitment, and we had only been dating for two months. Neither of us had ever been in a relationship before. At first, everything was great; I felt secure and I let...

    When he asked me out,

    he did it in the cutest way; "Would you date a wrestler?" As silly as it was, it was still what I'd always wanted to hear. But I didn't realize what exactly I was getting myself into until we became serious, and his passion became a possible career. I was warned, a girl who was...

    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...

    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...

    I was 11 yrs old and in middle school,

    I had this huge crush on a boy in band. One day he texted me saying "I love you." And we started dating secretly. Months later I found out he was dared by my best friend and he only did it because I looked desperate.
