    I Need Quick Respnse. Its About My Boyfriend And His Ex

    Okay so I've been dating this guy for about 6 months. I've been in a long term relationship before, but this by far is the happiest I've ever been. We never fight and I consider him my best friend. This is beside the point. The problem isnt my relationship... it is his, with his...

    I'm 22 and my boyfriend

    and I started dating 5 years ago. We now have a 2 year old son. We had a rough year or so where we broke up a lot, but we were finally in a very good place when I got pregnant. I question whether or not I would still be with him if I hadn't gotten pregnant. My son truly saved my...

    Constantly Fighting With Husband

    I haven't even been married for a year and I don't think my marriage will last.  My husband says that I am not the same since my friend died one year ago. I don't have many friends.  Neither does he.  He always says that we don't have any quality time together, but...

    Sometimes I get lost in life.

    I have no idea what I am doing or why. Maybe I do, but repetitive failures blur my mind. Then I question myself. Then I forget. While I am stuck here waist deep in confusion, loneliness creeps in.

    I'm feeling so conflicted lately.

    Part of me loves the fact that I can blend in and am totally unseen. I'm pretty much invisible. The other part of me is longing for someone to notice and love me. I think these two things are in direct contrast with each other, yet I can't decide which one I want. I know that...

    Am I Already Too Deep?

    What if all of this is a sick joke to him? It won't be the first time it's happened. If it is, I shouldn't be surprised. And yet, I find myself falling deeper and deeper. I caution myself of the insane abyss just a step away from where I'm standing, and at times I ignore it, but...

    I'm pretty sure I know how you feel.

    But I can't decide whether that's making me move on, or pushing me to try even harder.

    Love As Thou Wilt

    I broke up with my boyfriend because I wasn't happy. He was controlling, but he was also trying to stop. He was trying to fix himself. But I just couldn't wait. I was hurting. From the past and the present. And I thought I was making a good decision, the right one. But now I'm so...
