I Am Confused About My Relationship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 10,691 People

    First and foremost, I would like to admit

    that I have failings as a human being, like we all do. I have my ego issues, I have my temper issues, I live with the consequences of these short comings everyday. I know that I somehow encouraged the situation that I am in. I have been with my girlfriend for over two years, I...

    My wife told me she's not happy

    and needs to move out and the main reason is because I love her to much. She has mental illness and is so confused. I've told her I could go with her to her councilor for support but she says she has to face it alone. Her mother had the same problem and spent most of her life...

    I too am confused about my relationship with a

    man I met about a month ago. It began as sweet, charming, and a strong physical attraction, although we have not slept together. We are both divorced with kids, so I let him know we would be taking things slow. We began talking every day. About 2 weeks into dating he asks me to...

    I'd like to start off by saying I met my

    boyfriend 6 years ago before he had any kids, him and I were just friends at the time. In that time he was seeing someone although he claims he was never really dating her but having a "sexual relationship" with her. When we started to pick up feelings for one another it was the...

    I realize I love him. Every time I think I love him, I realize we're over. "Confused" is an understatement.

    So, I have this boyfriend.

    .. He lives in Canada, I live in the USA, we've never meant, we've been talking for 6 months, but only started dating for a month. All my friends tell me that I should brake up with him since I'm 13... He's 16. I honestly don't know what to do, can some one message me and help?

    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...

    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...

    Conversations is important in a relationship.

    .. After the passion faded away, you just want to be with someone that can connect with you emotionally and that is usually communication and conversation. Should I break up with someone because I cannot have an intelligent conversation with him? He doesn't care about anything...
