Re: Hello again

Hi Snail, It's going fine. I found the medication prescribed by my doctor was extremely effective in controlling my mood and the normal crash into depression I know to expect during withdrawal. I've known that process to last upwards of two to three weeks in the past before I begin to feel mentally ...

Hello again

Hi folks, It's been a long time since I last visited or contributed to this site, I'd guess maybe a couple of years nearly? (I checked, it's very nearly 2 years). Anyway, I suppose as happens to everyone, life moves on, free time becomes less frequent and work becomes more stressful and so I ended u...

Re: Do I try to forget?

Hi Nomad, I understand your point about him teasing himself, like he's dangling a carrot in front of his own nose, but that analogy works from your point of view because you're interested in something happening between the two of you, it may not work from his point of view though. It's possible he's...

Re: Do I try to forget?

I agree with Bel Bel that you shouldn't allow the faffing around to go on any longer, but I'm concerned your characters are too different to work together. I know he initially came across as a more confident person when he got back in touch but it's easy to do that over email, I think he showed you ...

Re: Dad is forcing me to learn kung fu

It sounds to me like your dad was either forced himself to do something similar when he was young, or wishes he had. I think it's important to sit down with your dad and ask him why he really wants you to learn Kung Fu. Is it really for self-defence, and if so for what reason? Who does he think you'...

Re: Serious help needed in sex starved marriage

Hi Danny, Before you let this destroy your relationship I think it's time to step back and look over the intimacy issue and consider the rest of your relationship. Putting aside the intimacy issue for a moment, is your relationship good? Do you still love your wife? Do you still want this relationsh...

Re: I don't know what to do, or how I feel anymore

Your boyfriend comes across as an extremely self-centred individual. Flirting with other women and cheating on you in the past, and now subjecting you to abuse over your own lifestyle, excluding you from social events with people whom you're also friends with and shouting at you for apparently no re...

Re: feeling exculded by partners family suddenly

I think there are a few different things going on here. When it comes to your boyfriend's family being more enthusiastic around the new girl, in all honesty I think that's natural. You've been with your boyfriend, and by extension his family, for what, six years now? As a result you're part of the f...

Re: What do i do?

Based on what you've told us I don't think you should be spending any time in the company of either your friend's boyfriend or the drunk friend, it's a recipe for disaster, especially if there's going to be drink involved. Plus, why should you spend any time in the company of two people who treat yo...

Re: Aggressive Brother

Given your past it would be understandable if you didn't want to confront him yourself, but if you feel like you can then I'd suggest doing so as a first course of action. I guess there are two approaches you could take, the first would be to wait until you're in his company when something like this...

Re: who pays for dates?

This topic is going to divide opinion, as it has done in the past, but here's my take on it. In my view the issue of equality is valid, it's something that's getting better in the modern world, but it's not where it should be. For example, I totally agree that I woman doing the same job to the same ...

Re: girlfriend left after 8 years

I agree with Snail, it's much too soon to be seeing each other with a view to being friends or with a view to rekindling the relationship. She needs to understand in her own head what life without you will be like. One thing you don't mention, but something you need to get sorted out, are the arrang...

Re: Girlfriend and daughter

I feel the most you can really hope for here is that the daughter comes to an uneasy acceptance. I certainly don't think full acceptance is on the cards any time soon given the inevitable "weirdness" of you two being basically the same age. I'm not suggesting there's anything wrong with the age gap,...

Re: My girlfriend has become unattracted to me...

If I'm honest my gut reaction is she just wasn't taking the relationship seriously from the start. Here's why: You had been seeing each other for 5 weeks, so long enough to know if you were genuinely serious about pursuing a relationship with the other person She thought nothing of going on holiday ...

Re: Husbands new girlfriend pregnant

When it comes to telling your daughter I don't think there's any particularly easy way to tell her, you're just going to have to sit her down and break it to her as gently as you can. Perhaps if she has anything important coming up imminently, for example, an exam, you might wait until it's passed t...
