    Advice Needed Very Much!

    I met a guy. I thought he was so cool and great. He told me he had a place but we could chill at his mom's crib while she was out of town. When she came back in town I found out he did not have a place but crashed on people's couches. It is not hardcore homeless, but he was also...

    Hate To Admit The Truth

    At one time I tried to make it seem, at least in my mind, that it was always 'her' fault. As I matured, I had to admit I'm just not the kind of guy women want. I'm the kind of guy women SAY they want. It bothered me for many years until I came to accept it as a handicap. A guy on...

    Yup. I'm not quite sure how

    or why, but it does seem to be that way. Maybe I'm just "too nice" and girls spend their time looking for the bad parts that aren't there.?. Of course I suppose it's to be expected since people just play each other to gain advantage and manipulate others these days (especially...

    Too many failed relationships

    and the individuals are really good at telling me what's wrong with me. But whatever. I'm a pretty cool friend and I'm amazing in bed. Think it's time to focus on my strengths.

    Doomed

    I think its because after a while I stop seeing the person I'm with as a person and start seeing them as a thing that could hurt me. I think it all stems from this one relationship I was in a couple of years ago that was a real catastrophe. It was the first time I was truly in...

    There's no doubt in my mind

    that I am in love, and I know he loves me too, but the distance gets to me emotionally. He's only three hours away, but it still affects me in ways that are beyond the physical. And I feel like I don't make it any easier. Me always being sad, or upset at him not being here...

    It's all because of the way our situation ended -with her completely ignoring me . Last time I texted her all I wanted was to talk for some closure , and no response to any texts or calls . I know she used me , and that really stings , but really ?! That's the goodbye I get...

    How is it that every time I fall in love,

    she cheats? I often wonder if there is something wrong with me. Maybe my looks? Or perhaps I'm boring? I honestly do not know why. I just know that I have only ever been in one relationship where I was not cheated on.

    Yeah, I don't really get those "feelings"

    that others get, so it's kind of difficult for me. The two things that go through my mind once I. In a relationship is A.) we'll break up with eachother B.) in stuck with this person until one of us perishes They're the only two possible outcomes so you have to be careful

    Why do men not know what the term dating means

    anymore? Their version is asking a girl out on a so called date taking her to a bar and then trying to have sec with her. Why don't people want to take the time to get to know someone before they have sex with them?
