• Is there hope for this relationship?

    My boyfriend and I have been together for about four months. He pressured me into moving in with him after 8 weeks. At first, I told him it was too soon but then I gave in and moved in with him because he kept pressuring me. Since then, we've had a lot of problems. I pay him rent, I buy groceries...I cook, he drives my car. I do everything for him that he complains his exes never did. He picks fights with me almost every day over petty things. Then we argue and he tries to manipulate me and blame me for everything. I called out of work last week because I was too upset to go to work after arguing with him. I am seeing so many red flags with him...he's an alcoholic and he's in massive debt. He lies to me about everything and if I confront him, we get into terrible fights and he never takes responsibility for anything he does. I really can't talk to him about anything because he's super sensitive and he acts like a child. We never go out on dates anymore...I feel like I'm living a nightmare and I have nowhere else to go. We fought yesterday because he suggested that I put his Disney pass on my credit card, because he can't afford it, then he blew up on me. He said, "I'm not feeling good about our relationship. I'll leave it up to you if you want to end it". Then I said that I would leave if he wanted me to and he said, "I don't want you to leave. I just don't know how to fix this". I am so stressed out and unsure of what to do, or if this can be fixed.

  • Don't you think celebrating birthdays is unnecessary and overrated?

    Like... it's for toddlers at the max. It's so goddamn stupid to celebrate your birthday when you're 16+. That's being immature and vain. Don't you agree?

    Hi I'm 27 and my mother wants me to get a job so I can move out. The problem is, I don't think I'm quite cut out for a job. I'm still a virgin and I think that I should get laid before I get a job and move out so that way I have someone to buy a home with, but most girls don't like me for some reason. I'm horny all the time and I don't wanna take away my time from pleasing myself because it's kind of a burden. I can't even go to the grocery store without having to wear baggy pants because I'm hard all the time. She also recently found my hentai collection and threw it all away and I was super pissed because I worked hard on drawing it. I also don't wanna take away from my gaming time because I have a passion for Fortnite. My mother also said I need to go on a diet and even signed me up for a gym membership. I only went to the gym once and it was super lame so I never went again. I don't have many friends so I do get kind of lonely but I MAINLY wanna get laid so I can feel accomplished in life, y'know? But the main thing my mom wants me to do is get a job. She called me pathetic and told me to get my lazy *** out the door. My dad left me when I was 5 so I can't contact him. I miss him sometimes. I was so young and innocent and he left me and it messed me up and for my mom to have the audacity to wanna push me out. I think my mom needs a dude around not in a sexual or weird sense because my mom is pretty ugly but just because my dad left.

    Months ago I posted a question in which I described the whole situation and most of the answers justified his behaviour claiming that he did the right thing. I had high fever (39°), and he was sleeping at my house for the first time because my parents were abroad. I was alone at home and had fever. The first day that I was sick he stood by me, gave me medicines and cooked for me. The second day the temperature raised and I really really sick, and I woke up in the middle of the night shivering, naked (without the upper part of the pj, the undershirt and bra) and when I asked him why, almost crying, he said: because you were sick and your clothes were wet and I had to. He gave me dry clothes and something to lower the temperature. He turned off the light and I felt so ashamed and angry at him and at myself because he had seen me naked. He had never seen me naked before, it was humiliating. I'm also hurting because I think that I'm mean for thinking bad about him, because he did it for good, but I don't know, it's like he isn't the perfect guy I had always thought of, I was really in love with him, but I dare you to find yourself suddenly naked and not to be angry or resent him. I always thought he was perfect but after all these months I still have nightmares about that night.

    I m 19 years old, and for as long as I can remember, I ve had all sorts of anxieties and depression from a young age. Long story short, the other week, after my mum got married to her new husband, she had a go at me for crying when I dropped my phone on my toe. I thought crying when you ve hurt yourself is a completely normal reaction, but then it continued with her telling me I need to get help and that she s fed up with it. I really don t get how it s gone from hurting my toe, to I need therapy... Whenever I try to talk to her about my personal problems, it always ends up in shouting and arguing. She will now cut me off straight away when I try to open up. She s the only person who has been with me my whole life, and now she doesn t want anything to do with me. This has really affected me badly. And even though I feel I m better, these situations drag me back down again. I don t know what to do anymore. I can t move out, I ve got no one to stay with, I can t even talk to my own parent anymore... I couldn t get any advice online so I ve come here. I m sorry if none of this makes sense, and that it s really long, I m just all over the place about this and need someone to give me advice or their opinions.

So I ask again politely and she said, "no way! why?" and I let her know I wanted to know what a wedding ring would like on me and she still said no. Now were not speaking and avoiding each other at work because she's being selfish. What is her issue? Its not like i was trying to steal it

    I don’t mean just sexually, although that is a major part of it (if I never initiated, we’d probably have sex less than every other month). I mean, he’s gotten super non-affectionate or romantic, and I feel more like I’m just a friend of his who he happens to sleep in the same bed with. I understand that he hurts constantly, and is tired from work (he is a technician), but I just want HIM to cuddle with ME sometimes. Or to hold MY hand. I’m always the one who has to ask to cuddle, or take his hand. I know it sounds like he is just not interested in me anymore, but I am sure it’s not that. And I’ve brought up a conversation about it a few different times, but he always just ends up convinced he’s a jerk and doesn’t oay attention to my needs, even though that’s all he tries to do constantly. He always makes me choose whatever I want to do, and he tried to do what he thinks will make me happy. But anyways, how to I try to fix this? Or at least, how can I try communicating with him in a way that he doesn’t feel bad? (Even though that’s all I try to do. Each time I’ve brought it up I’ve tried phrasing things differently, etc, so he recieves it better, but he always ends up thinking he’s the a**hole.)

Not sure why you wouldn't get him a a video game- do you think these are bad for him? Maybe you would like to choose something more meaningful that you feel would let him know you're his sibling?

    My wife is most wonderful person in the world. There is her one habit that really bothers me. She almost always never finishes her plate, at home or restaurant. There is always some pieces of bread or rice or some other food left. My plates are usually spotless after I am done eating. I strongly believe in not wasting any food that is on your plate. Either you only take food that you can finish or you finish your plate completely no matter what. I don't mean to sound superior but I mainly do it because I always have this thought in back of my mind that there are people in the world who don't get one full meal everyday. At home, I usually clean it up for her. At restaurants, she does not let me. I have talked to her many times about this but she just does not seem to process it. I have decided that maybe if I show her some documentary that talks about wasting food or starving people, that would make her think twice before she throws any food away. This isn't just about finishing up her plate. When she goes to grocery, she also buys more things than we need. I am OK with that but don't throw anything from fridge because we didn't use it and it went bad. I have shown her John Oliver's video on food waste but that does not seem to convince her. Can anyone recommend more serious documentaries or videos that portray importance of food and seriousness of food waste?

    I have a plus one to a wedding. I’ve been thinking of asking a woman I’ve been close with for years as my plus one. The thing is, she’s midway through a messy divorce and her husband is trying to use everything he can against her. I’ve already been dragged into it once when he accused us of having an affair because she attended a gig I played with her oldest daughter. I know she could do with a night of letting her hair down and enjoying herself. She doesn’t have the children that weekend as they are on holiday with her parents. However she does know I have feelings for her and I know she has them for me, but we’ve both agreed to not act on them until the divorce comes through as it would just make things worse for her. I know that many of the people at the wedding are the type to post every picture they take online and some guests are good friends with her husband, so he will see that she’s at the wedding and I would not be surprised if he gate crashed and made a scene as he’s possessive and jealous, amongst other things. I’m just worried if I ask her it’s going to make things difficult for her.

  • Is divorce the worst thing a parent can do to a child?

    Best answer: IF YOUR parents divorce, it can seem like the end of the world, a catastrophe that generates enough misery to last forever. It often triggers a wave of shame, anger, anxiety, fear of abandonment, guilt, depression, and profound loss—even a desire for revenge.

    Best answer: IF YOUR parents divorce, it can seem like the end of the world, a catastrophe that generates enough misery to last forever. It often triggers a wave of shame, anger, anxiety, fear of abandonment, guilt, depression, and profound loss—even a desire for revenge.
    Whatever the case, the fact that your parents may have chosen to be silent or to give you only vague answers to your questions regarding the divorce does not mean they do not love you. Wrapped up in their own hurt, your parents may simply find it hard to talk about the divorce. They may also find it awkward and embarrassing to admit to their mutual failures.
    • Identify your fears. Because divorce can turn your world upside down, you may find yourself worrying about things that you formerly took for granted. Even so, you may be able to shrink your fears to a manageable size by first identifying what they are.
    ● Resist false expectations. Your first instinct might be to try to get your parents back together. Recalls Anne: “After they separated, my parents would still take us out together sometimes. My sister and I would whisper to each other, ‘Let’s run ahead and leave those two together.’ But I guess it didn’t work. They never did get back together.”
    Proverbs 13:12 says: “Expectation postponed is making the heart sick.” To avoid becoming unduly distressed yourself, remember that you cannot control what your parents do. You didn’t cause their separation, and in all likelihood you cannot step in and patch up their marriage either.
    ● Avoid hatred. Harboring anger and hatred toward one or both of your parents can cause you long-term damage. Tom recalls his feelings at age 12: “I started to feel real anger toward my dad. I don’t like to use the word ‘hatred,’ but I had a terrible grudge. I couldn’t see how he could care about us if he left us.”
    Separation, though, is rarely as simple as one parent being all good and the other being all bad. The fact is, your parents probably haven’t told you everything about their marriage or its breakup; they may not even understand it themselves. So avoid judging a situation when you don’t have the whole picture. Granted, anger is hard to resist, and it’s quite natural for you to feel deeply upset for a time. But nursing an angry and vengeful spirit can gradually poison your personality. For good reason the Bible tells us: “Let anger alone and leave rage.”—Psalm 37:8.

    Friend A has a birthday in a week, and a close friend of her (lets call her friend B) asked me if I could celebrate her birthday with a few other friends. Friend B told me to bring the present I bought (I didn't buy a present.. I didn't even think about buying one for her. We aren't really close and she didn't do anything for my birthday) and meet up at the mall. She said that we will go the the cinema then bowling, and later on go to a restaurant and eat cake. She also added that she will buy balloons and snacks and that we will pay her back later. Now the problem is that I don't have enough money to buy a present, to go the movies, go bowling AND to eat at a restaurant. Don't forget the balloons and snacks. Plus, Friend A sent me a list of things she wants for her birthday and told me to buy her one of the things on the list. ??? We aren't even close friends? I don't even want to spend money on her birthday! Friend A didn't do anything for me.. I have no problem about buying a small gift and mabye eat out or go to the movies. But what she wants to do is wayy too much. I feel bad about not coming at all, it's still her birthday. What do I say?

    My mum's shoulder replacement operation is on 14th September. I've saved up for years to go to New York City and I finally got enough money for a 3 week holiday. However, the day I leave also falls on the day of my mum's shoulder replacement op. Because of this, she wants me to cancel my once-in-a-lifetime trip to New York to look after her while her shoulder heals. This is a once-in-a-lifetime trip for me. If I don't go, I probably won't ever be able to go in the future. I've asked her if she wants other people to look after her when she's gone. However, she doesn't want anyone to look after her besides myself. While her shoulder heals, she can't pick up anything that is heavier than a glass of water. What should I do? Should I cancel the trip to look after her? Or should I go? If I go, she'll never forgive me.
