    Anyone else in a relationship with a

    dream-crushing pessimist? Mine doesn't do this with anyone else, just me, and definitely not on purpose or consciously. It's fine once in a while but 24 hours a day of critical negative talk is exhausting and after years of this I'm now at breaking point and have pressed the...

    We're Almost At 6 Years.

    When I started dating my significant other it was on a whim. He asked me out and I had nothing to lose. He was nice. We talked a lot. We've always been long distance. I didn't expect it to last beyond a month or two - common for kids in high school, even more common for long...
