I honestly feel so broken when it comes to my love life.It’s just that I am very guarded against letting people in romantically. I saw a lot of posts that suggest therapy and that maybe a good place to start.
However, it caused a lot of trauma and when it comes to my love life I put up sooo many barriers that it becomes hard to let people in.
I know I can be social, that I am person who has a good career and spends time working on myself, and I have a lot of good friends.
I feel like this might stem from the fact that I grew up taking care of myself as my parents were very hands off and pretty bad with emotional support. I stayed single and went to therapy and thought I was ready to take on the dating world after, which brings us to the year on the dating apps. But he's been traveling for work and I've been putting things off.
Anyone else been in similar situations and gotten over it? I was once someone who was hopeful in meeting someone who liked me for me. I guess I just don't understand why he wants to see me again.
I’ve been on Several dates and when the check comes it always turns awkward for me. He wanted to do a phone call, I hate talking on the phone so I suggested a drink instead. Is it appropriate to suggest splitting it as soon as it is delivered? Not sure if the rules are different for 20 somethings vs 50 somethings. like a girl and girl couple looking for a third girl (can never have too many! i tried an account like that on okcupid, but the account got banned within a few days.
If so, like him or not, I need to get out after one round as I’m financially strapped right now. is there a mainstream, non-dirty, non-fetishy online dating site/app for couples looking for someone?Once we met up the spark was kind of there but not a huge spark though I decided to give another try bc our texts still flowed so easily.Well one thing led to another on our second date and we hooked up, best sex I've ever had then I got nervous snd ended up flirting with another guy, he found out abd got upset and we agreed after that we should maybe just keep it sexual which I was fine with....until this past week. I can't stop thinking about him and its been 3 days.Yesterday was a bit different however, I joined a mixed group to play a few games of pool.There was one particular girl that caught my eye and seemed really nice.Now I just feel like that's never going to happen. I look at other girls, and wonder, how do they find someone who likes who they are? I just feel like a couple of weeks later he will also just decide there's other girls out there and peace out like the rest of them.
