    Great Girl. But Something Is Still Off.

    We met about 14 months ago and have had ups and downs since the beginning. Every time I thought I might lose her .. through either my action or her action, I felt in love with her. But whenever she seemed sure about us (most of the time) I found myself analyzing her imperfections...

    We have been engaged for almost five years by now, but we do not love, need each other. We got engaged by our church, as we have the same religion. There is absolutely nothing wrong with the doctrine, its principles are Universally true. But we two.. It is unthinkable to break up...

    Help!

    We met about seven years ago. Back then, I was getting over a pretty hard break-up and was trying to find myself again. When we met, it was agreed to be a sexual relationship; no strings, no commitments. Well, of course, that didn't last very long. We dated for 3 1/2 years before...

    An Engagement I Knew It Ended Before It Began

    I just had 2 hours of sleep, since I was talking with my fiancée for almost 5 hours. Well, what can I expect it was a crazy engagement to begin with. We were just the uniquely stubborn hopelessly romantic couple who never saw the differences at the start of the relationship. Or...

    I Want Out

    I'll keep my story short and sweet, hopefully... I'm engaged to a wonderful man, but I've seem to have convinced myself he's not for me. He is very loyal, a hard worker, annoyingly funny (actually very childish). We have been each other's first. Inseparable since the age of 18...

    Engaged and Really Unsure...

    My fiance and I have been together 5 and a half years.  We started dating when I was 16 and he was 19.  For both of us, this has been our first and only serious long term relationship.  In many ways you could say we are complete opposites - I am outgoing and...

    Heartache And So Much More...

    I'm debating whether I need to break off my engagement. My fiance and I have known each other for two years. When we first began dating, we instantly hit it off - similar interests and personality. Things became sour after the proposal in the summer. We started planning a wedding...

    I Want Out, But I Am Afraid Because I Love Him So Much.

    I feel completely at crossroads. I have been with my fiance for 3.5 years and have been engaged for the last 2 years. My biggest undoing is that, he will not commit to a date when he would like us to have our wedding. A couple of months ago, we had agreed to be putting some...
