I found my last girlfriend through my school's online dating site. She wasn't taking classes at the time, but had plans to start them up again. She was very different from my first girlfriend, who broke up with me at a really inconvenient time, so I thought this relationship had to be good. It turns out she was just using me. See, she worked for a multi-level marketing company, which I later found out to be a scam industry. She broke up with me for not taking her and her work seriously. This would be understandable if she had a legit job and if I hadn't spent all my money and free time helping her in the business for 5 months. When she had uploaded her dating profile, she wasn't looking for a boyfriend. She really just wanted to make an easy seller under her that she could mess around with on the side. Even though I was being a great boyfriend, taking her on fun dates and all, she never actually cared about me. She didn't like to cuddle, she rarely tried to look nice for me, her gifts to me were cheap things she got from her company, and it even took her a while to take down her dating profile after we started the relationship. After breaking up with me, she even had the nerve to still want me to do free business for her. I imagine by now she's probably started looking for the next guy she can easily take advantage of. I can't believe I'm that shallow; I mean really? I dated that?

It sounds like she wants you two to reamin friends until she's ready for more, which is of course her right, and you seem alright with that. I wouldn't let the opportunity pass to tell her how you feel and be outright, but I wouldn't push it either. I guess what my advice is: be a friend, be there for her, and maybe she'll come around. If you enjoy her company and she enjoys yours, have fun with that.

Shortly after gettin married, I found out that my husband had faked being in the Army, faked PTSD and flashbacks (gave me a concussion one night during a "flashback"), he also lied about deployments and losing his friends overseas. He had also told me that he had a daughter that was killed in a DUI accident and a sister that was raped and murdered. None of this was true. And to this day, he is still keeping to his story, even though there are no records for his military service, and his entire family telling me that none if it was true. I am deployed in Afghanistan now and he is trying to get me to pay spousal support because he doesnt want to work. I cant believe i married that thing!

My ex broke up with me, literally, the day after I was released from a psychiatric unit. I had been admitted because I had wanted to kill myself due to long-term depression. Of course, being broken up with sent me right back into my suicidal thought pattern, so he called the police and had them drag me away for another three agonizing days in the hospital. Then I get back home after now a full week of hospital visits, and I find that he and his parents had pretty much packed up my stuff for me and kicked me out. I had to drop out of school, quit my job, lose a research position in my university, and move back home because in the span of one week, I had lost all of my friends, my ex, and a place to live. All because he couldn't handle my depression.

I dated this girl for 3 years. We meet in high school when i was a senior and she was a junior. We hit it off and we had fun going place. well when ever i went to her house her sister always screamed at me and said i was stupid and it didnt bother me cuz i loved her. We talked about kids and getting married and having a future together. She was my first love and the only person i really cared about. I got mad at her one time because she never stayed the night with after 3 year of being with each other and she said that she wanted a break to be 18.

I'm in love with my best friend. It's not the typical "friend zone" thing. We've known each other since high school, at first we were close friends. I developed feelingsfor him and he admitted that he'd had a crush on me for 2 years. We decided to try dating, not much changed except we grew closer. He was even my senior prom date. Later that summer, he left for a vacation. He was gone for about 2 weeks. I being the complete piece of shit that I am, got drunk and cheated on him at a party. He found out and we stopped talking for 3 years. We've since grown over it and have started talking again. The feelings have come flooding back. We are as close as ever, and I came to crushing realization that I still hopelessly love him. Instead of ruining our friendship again I need to swallow my feelings. I've come to accept that to have him I life is more important, then the "what ifs".

What ever happened to just going on a two day bedenr and moving on? Yeah, sometimes there's something to be learned, but sometimes there's not. Whether there is or isn't depends on the facts of the case. That much was said in the interview, minus the bedenr part. That was my contribution.But isn't the issue here that either fixating on unimportant details or ignoring important ones comes down to judgment, and that's why these folks are in therapy in the first place? They get flustered, don't rationally analyze what's going on, and don't make sound decisions? Feelings and emotions are what you make of them, I guess, but at some point isn't it important to put them to the side and focus on the facts and not necessarily how a person feels about them?

In the beginning of my freshman year I met this super smart guy that i fell head over heels for. He was a senior, and I was SO far out of his league. He had been on/off with this fat chick for about 3 years in another state, so he never wanted to date me. Then he got back together with her and told me in the douchiest way on Christmas fucking Eve when he visited her and fucked her. I cried when I opened my presents at midnight. Yet he STILL wouldn't leave me alone, and would constantly flirt with me. The she dumped him in February and he turned into an even bigger asshole treating me like I was expendable and only spending time on me if he was lonely, bored, or getting something out of it. Then I found out he had been banging the unclean, fugly foreign girl we both used to be friends with. Once I overlooked that BECAUSE I LOVED HIM, he went and fucked his best GUY friend and the cumdumpster foreign girl at the same time, and when I confronted him about it he lied and told me fuck you. A week goes by and he asks for me back, so after being fed up with his bullshit I turn him down, and I'm still disgusted with myself for letting him treat me that way. He made me feel worthless and pathetic, like I was nothing without him, and he manipulated me into having sex with him twice. He was a drug addict, more out of it than not and had mental disorders. He was emotionally abusive towards me. Last I heard from him he was absolutely miserable, alone, and had no meaning to life. Plus he got hemorrhoids from fucking his guy bff so I guess karma bit him pretty hard in the ass.

Having been single again for almsot 6 years that is a tough question. I was married for 20 years and the impotency killed the marriage. ( pre Viagra and Caverjet). I have found that women in my age group for the most part except it fairly well. I wait until a couple of dates before I sort of slip in something about a doctors appointment or getting a prescription filled. I don't think you should wait until you in a position where you have too explain in the middle of a romantic moment.I have been dating a women who has dated several guys in the past who were impotent. She has experienced a reoccurring theme where the men tend to enjoy being submissive sexually. She thinks this is because it take the responsibility of sex away from the man and the guilt of failure. I must admit that I too have these feelings a lot. Is this a common feeling among impotent men?
