    Advice needed? An odd situation

    I'm unsure if this is even the right place to ask for this sort of advice. Maybe it's not advice I need, but...just a place to part with my thoughts. Thank you in advance for bearing with me. It...well, I don't know how to begin. A person with whom I once had a past has somehow managed to...

    Understanding feelings post-breakup

    Hello, I’ve had this question gnawing at my mind and I’m hoping some of you can offer some insight. My ex partner broke me with me some months ago, but I’m having a hard time processing what happened and how to move forward. I feel obsessive to figure out what they are doing. Is it normal to...

    How long to wait until sending another message to a romantic interest?

    I have been speaking to someone online that I fancy romantically, and we are both open about liking each other (we’ve called each other cute). I was going to message him about arranging a video call as when I explained to him I’d like to keep talking online then progress to a video call he...

    A girl at a game store I (24-year-old male) go to asked me out today and I'm not sure what to do

    At this game store I go to, there's a girl there and we've played Warhammer for a few months now. Today, completely out of the blue when there were other people around, she came up to me and asked if I wanted to go out with her this weekend. It was very surprising for me, but I ended up saying...

    I wish my female friends understood how much they mean to me.

    Almost all my female friendships ended in disaster. The ones i liked ditched me, and abandoned me. While the others that i don't like think that i like them. My issue is I get depressed a lot when i see a couple because i never really had that type of Romantic Intimacy (being a close couple)...

    ND-ND marriage, anything I have not tried?

    I could write a whole book about this but I won't do that to you. The story might sound like a stereotype - wife feels emotionally deprived, disconnected, ND husband says he is doing what she is asking for but she isn't experiencing it the way it "should" be. ND husband apparently unable to see...

    What fictional programs about relationships do you like?

    While I know in storytelling that one emphasizes things to perhaps exaggerate conflict and outcomes, I remain fascinated with programs that highlight relationships, trying to fathom what is going on as well as understanding the characters and their actions. While never a guide for life, I enjoy...

    My aspergers boyfriend is behaving distant

    Me and my boyfriend with aspergers had a fight because I did not respond to his messages fast enough when I was out with a friend. He deleted every message he sent and we didn't talk for 2 weeks, so I messaged him again and I went crazy because he ignored my texts. I knew he was angry but he...

    Help with my Boyfriend

    I have been with my bf for almost two years (me=25, him=23). We actually met in therapy lol He was misdiagnosed and I was the one who suggested he had high functioning Aspergers and low and behold he did. We have been literally inseparable since. He sleeps over multiple times a week and jokes...

    Studying for until late 20s to the detriment of dating/social life

    I think that my situation is a bit known here, so I will skip it. Anyway I spent most of my life, since age 4 or 5 up to age 28 studying hard, to the detriment of both my dating and social life. If you can call it that, because usually I have had no dating nor social life. In high school I was...
