Re: Am I wrong

Hi southpaw Oh, no! This sounds awful. Not wanting sex is one thing, but it sounds like they don't want to even come near you? Why is that? You don't have to be horny to enjoy a cuddle. So all I can think is that they must be having an affair. Combined with what you've said about mobile phone obsess...

Re: Am I being unreasonable?

Thanks Dave I'm a bit calmer about it now. Just needed to vent. We are mostly on the same page with money, but I think the venue is worth splashing a bit out on, and we seem to be clashing on that. I mean, I couldn't care less about 'nice tablecloths', fancy invites or any of that showy rubbish what...

Am I being unreasonable?

Hi all I want some honest opinions on the subject of money. My partner and I are at the very start of planning our wedding, despite being engaged since Christmas, but for a number of reasons haven't done anything (and if I don't bring it up, he won't). His family are now asking questions and we've s...

So... what fully happened?

If you don't reply, I'll assume you got back together. :p xx

Re: Worried about my brother

Hi everyone An update. Things have gotten worse. Well, they basically carried on the way they were, with me feeling increasingly run down, exhausted from all his problems and him being unable to deal with anything, requiring long talks at every stage, constant complaining about people etc. In Februa...

Re: Boyfriend loves drugs...

I think this isn't going to work out. I think you'll keep going back and forth in your mind about it, bring it up with him, get shut down, make excuses for his poor behaviour, write on a different forum about the same thing, tear your hair out some more, convince yourself that it's not so bad, reali...

Re: Relationship Advice

It's the second one, Simon. I'm sorry to have to tell you so clearly, but I feel 100% sure that she's done a cheating with somebody at some point. The fact that she's even entertaining rumours about her sha-ing somebody else, like it's all a big game... the fact that her response was 'if I was seein...

Re: Relationship with a female escort

Quick reply from me. I'd advise keeping your finances separate. How long have you known this lady? Be together, have a relationship by all means... but don't pay off her debts for her or join your financial resources to hers. I have a different view on love - it's anything but unconditional (except ...

Re: Marriage?.

Are there ways to avoid asset upheaval in the event of a divorce? Are your reservations completely about that or is there something else? If he's everything you want in a man and you're happy together, then I, too, take a romantic view. :p But, if you're fully decided, then just explain to him as cl...

Re: Fiancé doesn't help me...

Yeah, it sounds like you're his mum. Interesting choice to have a kid with him, therefore. Surely he was better before, at some point? Otherwise why put up with it? He's addicted to online gaming. That's not a metaphor. It is possible to become addicted to gaming in the same way as smoking, alcohol,...

Re: Why is this married man acting like this towards me?

He's attracted to you and is testing the waters to see if an affair is possible.

Is it?

Re: NEED ADVICE ON STRANGE THING GIRLFRIEND SAID

I think the best thing you can do right now is get support to quit the drink. You know the drill. Go to AA, speak to your GP, watch sobriety podcasts and videos. I read 'the unexpected joy of being sober' at the start of this year and haven't had a drink since. You're in the middle of something here...

Oh my goodness. People: stop breeding. Why can't she adopt instead? I think bringing yet more human mouths into the world, outside of the most ideal circumstances (financially stable, both parents in good health and in a stable relationship preferably a marriage, 'cause if you can't commit to that t...

Re: Things are getting worse.. I need some serious advice.

Hi there It seems that David has you covered on the business line of questioning. For the emotional side of things, my serious advice would be..... let the chips fall where they may. Right now it's like you're the one keeping the whole show on the road. The martyr life can seem glamorous but you're ...
