    Too Nice For My Own Good

    Alright. So there's this girl who I've been dating for two months now and she seems to be very, very "into" me (for lack of a better term). I, however, am not nearly content with the relationship, and I only half-understand why. I have always valued compassion and understanding...

    Feeling Suffocated And Anxiety

    I'm not sure exactly when the anxiety and weight on my shoulders kicks in. At first, a relationship makes me feel happy. I guess cause of what I think its going to be like and the "omg, I was so into him and its awesome he's so into me" phase. I think this current "relationship...

    I, too, am stuck in a relationship that I can't get out of. Due to health reasons, he can't work, so I pay all the bills. I was always happy to do it and never complained or made him feel bad about the situation. Then I found out about his "online activities" and what he was...

    Yes, I do. I am the weakest link in my relationship and I haven't the strength to fight it.

    So Suffocated...

    I felt so suffocated in my last relationship. It was like I was being physically held down and smothered with a pillow. I couldn't breathe and nobody understands. When I finally got up the courage to end it it was all my fault in the eyes of others. He was perfect. He adored me...

    Don'T Go Away Mad... Just Go Away

    I need advice on how to make my boyfriend move out of my house. I have told him several times over the last two 1/2 years that he needs to leave. He won't. Why would he want to, he has everything he needs here. All of his living expenses are paid for (by me) and he has no...
