admitting feelings

so, i’ve been talking to this boy for about a week. we’ve known each other for longer, but “talking” for a week. we’ve been flirty and have both been talking about missing relationships, that he likes flirting with me, etc. i’m starting to like him, we both have a lot in common and we talk literally...

Re: relationship advice, kind of long, sorry!

i definitely am feeling better :) i told him that i didn’t want to sound selfish (because i had asked why he suddenly stopped talking to me) and apologized if i came off that way and offered my support if he wanted. i also said that he isn’t obligated to speak to me if he’s feeling down, but that at...

Re: relationship advice, kind of long, sorry!

so, i ended up talking to him today and got a response that i totally wasn’t expecting. he apologized to me for disappearing and told me that not being able to work and having his routine taken away from him has made his mental health bad and he told me that it wasn’t anything i did, and that he did...

Re: relationship advice, kind of long, sorry!

thank you for the advice. it’s not what i was hoping to hear but the honesty has pushed me towards a decision so i appreciate that :) i still think i want to talk to him about how i’m feeling and see if maybe he’ll talk to me about what’s been going on but you’re right, if this is how he is going to...

Re: relationship advice, kind of long, sorry!

it’s just a bit of a bummer seeing the immediate change in mood after the pandemic. he would call me pet names and be so kind to me before this, but now he’s just so dry and hardly ever talks to me and it makes me feel down. i don’t know if i have the right to explain to him how i’m feeling about th...

relationship advice, kind of long, sorry!

i apologize for how long this is, i guess i rambled a bit but i gave as much information/context as possible. in the beginning of march, i started talking to this guy. we'll call him sam. it seemed that sam and i clicked as soon as we met, we talked and joked like we had known each other forever. sa...

i have a crush on my tattoo artist

i have a crush on my tattoo artist. we matched on tinder about a year ago, i’m not sure if he remembers or not but i’d really like to get to know him more than just my artist — how can i go about this? or should i just chalk it down to a silly crush and not make things weird?

Re: haven’t talked to my best friend in almost a week

It actually sounds like this gave you some helpful information on how she's feeling about the whole thing. So, maybe a next step is just to get in touch with her and see how that initial conversation goes (since you now know that she's still interested in contacting you). yeah, i was thinking on do...

Re: haven’t talked to my best friend in almost a week

That's a totally understandable worry, especially since this is kind of new situation for the two of you. But, since you two are close friends, I think the chances are good that you'll be able to work this out, even if there are some awkward or rough bits while you do so. i actually have an update,...

Re: haven’t talked to my best friend in almost a week

Okay, I just wanted to ask in case there was a chance this fight was the culmination of something else that had been going on, but it doesn't sound like it. I think checking in on her gently or indirectly to see how she's doing, and then following up in the way that feels best, is a sound plan. Is ...

Re: haven’t talked to my best friend in almost a week

Got it, I imagine not having had a conflict like this before is part of why this feels so loaded in some ways. Being in that uncharted territory can be stressful. Since it sounds like you're leaning towards texting her, what if beforehand you thought about (or even wrote out) how you'll respond to ...

Re: haven’t talked to my best friend in almost a week

What if, then, you texted her a variation of what you just said to me: that you want to resolve things between the two of you and you're not angry with her, but that you feel like things sort of blew up in a weird way between you? Too, have you and she had conflicts before? If so, how did those usu...

Re: haven’t talked to my best friend in almost a week

I agree that texting her a week later still angry probably isn't the sound call in this instance. One thing that may help is to think about what you want from texting her, whether that's reconnecting because you miss talking to her, feeling like things got confusing in the middle of the fight and w...

Re: haven’t talked to my best friend in almost a week

Hi avaiara, This sounds like a pretty tangled up situation (and like your co-worker may have deliberately misrepresented the conversation with you). With your friend, did either of you make it clear to the other why you were angry (was she purely upset about you "ruining" a secret that it...

it was a petty, stupid argument but i’ll give you the rundown so you understand friday the 13th, my shop was having a flash sale on tattoos that lasted the whole day. my friend went in and got one without me, which i thought was a bit weird considering we had been talking about going together but i ...

i’ve been dating my boyfriend now for about two months. there was some drama with his ex, and to make a long story short, his “ex” who was texting me off of fake phone numbers ended up being someone trying to impersonate her to cause problems in both of our lives. since finding out it wasn’t her who...

Re: weird anxiety

Hi avaiara! I don't think it's weird, I think a lot of us feel different kinds of nerves mixed in with other things with people we're interested in. Let's look at this a bit more closely though. When you say you're just out of a breakup, I'm guessing from your other thread that you mean in the last...
