    About five months ago,

    I broke up with my boyfriend of about six months. He kept asking me for things I could not provide and I have not regretted it, especially since he kept belittling me and making me feel terrible for things I didn't want to do/couldn't do. He, on the other hand, feels the...

    My new boyfriend isn't romantic at all

    and isn't the greatest advice giver or listener. I honestly don't really know why I have lowered my standards for him. It's only been two weeks so maybe he will start changing when he trusts me more ?

    One of my exes sent me a link to his blog, which I have been receiving on regular basis, as he’s been overseas for two years now. I don’t generally read it, or if I do, I only skim through it for the pictures. We have stayed friends, more or less. I had kept a distance until...

    and they do anyway. Does this imply that your word doesn't matter to them or that they just don't care. Or is it more? Because I feel underminded and unappreciated. I feel like everything I say doesn't count. It goes in one ear and out the other. Double standards for sure...

    I'm dying to have a boy wrap his arms around me and kiss me. I want to be loved but I don't want to be hurt like last time. I want a loyal boyfriend. Not someone who cheats. It's hard to find gentlemen nowadays.
