Re: Friend Breakup

Hello again, First I want to say thank you to Siân and Mo for their advice. Last month, I decided to talk to L. He told me that everything was fine between us. But, he didn’t feel comfortable hanging out one on one, because he’s in a relationship with one of our other friends. I understood and told ...

Dating Apps

Hello,

So, I’m a little curious about dating apps. While I’ve used Tinder before, I didn’t really like it and found it a bit boring. But, I am interested in the app Coffee Meets Bagel.

Has anyone used this app or a similar one before?

What are/were your experiences with dating apps in general?

Re: Friend Breakup

Hi Siân, Thank you for your advice. I’d say our friendship is generally supportive. L has given me advice regarding college courses. And, when he was recovering from a foot injury, I reassured him that he was doing really well in salsa class, and that he shouldn’t push himself too hard. However, I’m...

Friend Breakup

Backstory: So, I’ve been taking salsa classes for almost 2 years, and I’ve made a lot of friends. One of them, who I’ll call L, is a really close friend who I’ve known for over a year. Last January, I started to develop feelings for him. I thought it was just a silly crush, but my feelings for him b...

Crushes vs Falling in Love

Hello,

So, I’ve had crushes before, but I was wondering...how do you know when you are in love with someone? And how is falling in love different than having a crush?

Re: Good love songs?

Hey KittyPink, Here are three of my favorite love songs <3: "Layla" - Eric Clapton: This is a very passionate and heart wrenching song about unrequited love, as Clapton was in love with Patty Boyd, George Harrison's wife. "He's My Sunny Boy" - Diana Ross and The Supremes: This on...

Re: the "-phobia" problem

Hi BiKinksterBoy, I think a good choice of words for describing LGBTQ+ discrimination could be "hetero-sexist" and "cis-sexist." Since they end in "-ist" (like as in "racist," sexist," "ableist," etc), these terms indicate not only the fear/hatr...

Hi Sam.

One of the weirdest myths I read is that masturbation will make hair grow on the palms of your hands. Lol. How did people come up with that one?

Hey Sam,

Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. Though, it's actually pretty sad in a way. Having diversity in relationships should make things interesting not shameful!

Sexual Inexperience

Hello Everyone! So, I turned 18 a few months ago, and I don't have a lot of...ummm...experience with sex and relationships. Although I would like to have a relationship one day, the opportunity never really presented itself. But I notice that for some, being sexually inexperienced can be a really bi...

Re: Anyone else have no friends or dates?

Hey 8888, As someone who goes to an online high school, most of my friends live in different states, and some even in different countries! As a result, I can't hang out with many of them, but we primarily talk on Facebook or through email. Also, I have never been on a date either. Basically, I cope ...

Re: Cross-Orientation Sexuality

Hello QueenDee, That's really interesting that you know people who are heteroromantic pansexuals! Also, I agree that sex is important in most relationships, but it doesn't have to be part of a romantic relationship. I think it's up to the partners to set up their relationship in a way that makes the...

Hey Heather, Don't worry, no toes have been stepped on. In fact, I have actually enjoyed this conversation. :) I agree that romance and love aren't the same. When I was referring to "love" in my last sentence, I was referring to love between girlfriends/boyfriends, significant others, etc....

Re: Cross-Orientation Sexuality

Good point, Heather. In fact, when I was writing my response, I thought my description sounded a quite similar to an intimate friendship. Perhaps, romantic relationships and deep friendships are practically the same when one excludes sex. So, I guess it depends on how the individuals see themselves ...

Hey unchained, I actually skimmed through both the Wikipedia and LGBTQ Center articles, just to make sure I had the right idea of what romantic orientation is. I though they were both useful. :) Also, I first learned about romantic orientation when I was reading a comic about asexuality. However, I ...

Re: Cross-Orientation Sexuality

Hi Heather, I can see how the concept of romantic orientation can be a bit confusing. From my understanding, romantic orientation refers to the emotional sides of relationships, aside from sex. So, in other words, a person may be interested in going on dates, hugging, holding hands, cuddling, spendi...

Re: Identity issues

Hey EclecticGeek,

Have you heard of the term demiboy/demigirl? A demiboy would be someone who identifies partially (but not wholly) as a man/male/masculine, whereas a demigirl would be someone who identifies partially as a woman/female/feminine. They are both included under the umbrella demigender.

Cross-Orientation Sexuality

Hello everyone. I don't know if this topic has been discussed before, but I was reading an article on Everyday Feminism about cross-orientation sexuality. From my understanding, this is when someone is romantically attracted to one gender group(s) and sexually attracted to another gender group(s). (...
