    Relationships Are the Hardest Thing In Life

    Where to start?  I find relationships, just not with your loved ones, but even with family very difficult. I've had a very strange life.  I had a estranged relationship with my father; he was both physically and verbally abusive.  At the age of 17 it climaxed...

    Pretty Panic

    So long story short my boyfriend has VERY attractive girl friends. Though I'm not worried that he likes them or would ever do anything to hurt me, I do worry that he thinks they are prettier than me. I know it shouldn't matter because he's with me and not them. But it does bother...

    Never Know

    I never know if they are for real or not. I have had so many bad experiences that I almost find it easier to stay out of relationships then to be in them.

    Is Chivalry Dead?

    What happened to honesty and fidelity? Where did men who are masculine yet compassionate go? The good women/men get burned so bad that we don't want to reach out anymore. If a good thing comes along we are so wrapped up in our depression that would wouldn't know it if it came up...

    I Choose Oscar Wilde

    I have always felt communicating effectively is if not the hardest, one of the hardest ,  things to do in a relationship. There are so many factors involved: age, sex, language education, status, power, culture, politics, religion, and the fact that the other person...

    Breastfeeding Is For Babies

    I find relationships frustrating when the mom is too involved. My ex had an issue with his mom acting as if she was the girlfriend. Constantly texting and calling him asking what he was doing that night, who he was going to be with, when he would be back, would he like to go to a...

    Some have been to hot, some have been to cold.  Some have been to far, some have been to near.  You get the picture, I guess I am waiting for one that is just right.  Now I am wondering if my expectations are to high or unrealistic, but I don't want to settle for...

    Over Done

    I feel that when if comes to relationships that I over give. I'm the one who thinks about the little things... ex little notes/reminders, flowers, cards, etc. I'm the one that remembers to call, I'm the one that cries over it. Maybe it's that I'm the only one interested in making...
