Re: Just a bit stressed vs bubbling pot of crazy

Thank for the reply Retrochav. Think you are fairly spot on in what you have said-things ARE a bit petty and constrained. Ive already taken your advice and met up with my buddies and have booked a trip away. I have suggested a performance review thingy at work so maybe can make it switch from poo sa...

Just a bit stressed vs bubbling pot of crazy

Im feeling rubbish at the moment and have been for some time. I have, in the past, been known to overreact however, so Im curious as to wether I am justifiably stressed out or in actual fact just being a giant crazy dramaqueenesque moper. I have noticed a change in myself for a while and consequentl...

Re: Ego balm....or big, HUGE, mistake

From what you said on your 2009 post, it seems you werent really 'friends' as such before you started dating? Please correct me if that isnt the case. Obviously Im not saying that exs cant ever be friends but if youve only really seen this chap as a romantic interest, it might be harder to switch to...

Coping with boyfriend and own bereavement?

Im not sure if Im being silly here-theres a chance my brain is in scrambled egg mode-so could use a few unbiased opinions. I have recently lost a close family member, a grandparent. It wasn’t entirely out of the blue (long history of medical sickness ect) but obviously has still been a heartbreaking...

Re: Bad week!

Bummer, Rufio, thats a pretty sucky week. Wish I had a halfway decent joke or a bucket of icecream to cheer you up but I dont :( It sounds like you are genuinely really stressed out, which isnt going to help if youve been ill as stress messes with your immunity and is the likely cause of your headac...

Re: Why has he behaved like this.

Sorry, Hope, but I dont think your bf is acting like a guy with no clue about women. He knew you wouldnt like seeing him with other women and has hidden information-thats the action of a pretty clued up chap. Highlandcow, Bel Bel and Ragdoll have made some really good points in regard to thinking se...

Re: Confused, advice needed!

Kudos, iet, seems you are being very understanding and reasonable about this. I dont think you are being a fool at all-on the contrary, youve identified that you have other stuff to deal with right now. The only thing is, if hes as lovely as you say, you are likely not to be the only one who has not...

Serious Case Of Unreasonable Sulkiness

Am a bit embarassed to be sharing this but what the hell :) Recently (the last...month? 6 weeks? Maybe more) Ive been relatively unhappy. Its not constant unhappiness exactly-for example, as I write this, I feel perfectly chipper-but its approximately daily that something will upset me to the point ...

Re: It was just a kiss

Sounds like an overreaction to come from an adult man with kids (okay, if you are a teenager, its a big deal, but for sensible adults, less so?) It WAS a violation of trust on your part and your partner DOES have the right to be a bit hissed off but dramatic walking out seems OTT, especially given t...

Re: So your girlfriend says she is going on holiday without

The line 'Without asking you or anything. Whats going on here?' bothered me a wee bit. If you meant that she didnt mention it before and now you are feeling a little rejected, then fair enough, but if you mean that you think your girlfriend of a few months should be clearing her schedule with you th...

Re: boyfriend material?

Do you think you are considering this guy because hes so lovely or because youve been single a while and dont want to be anymore? I only ask because...well, its like crisps (or chips, depending on where you are). Sometimes you really, really, really fancy a nice bag of salt and vinegar crisps but yo...

Re: Martial Arts Jealousy?

Thats a good idea. I will research other local clubs. Im keen to stick with the judo (Ive tried a fai few of other forms and loved them all but only so many hours in the day, lol!) but as you said, if its not working then Im doing no one any favours. Cheers! Its been great to get an opinion, things ...

Re: Martial Arts Jealousy?

Thanks for the reply Skarlet :) Outside of judo, I also do karate and occasionally jog or hike. Ive not considered trying a different school mainly because it just hasnt occoured to me, but its a good suggestion. Trouble is, Id feel disloyal to the club and to my buddy :s

Martial Arts Jealousy?

Ive never posted a problem online before but I stumbled on this forum. Everyone seems so helpful and friendly and frankly Im a bit stuck so I thought Id share and see what the general opinion is :)Apologies if this is the wrong area of the forum.
