Re: Break-up

Heather, my apologies for the late reply! It gets worse and worse every single day here in Turkey - and now I am waiting for my COVID test results, unfortunately :( I hope everything gets better over time (fingers crossed) :roll: And here is a little update about the break-up stuff: I am feeling muc...

Re: Break-up

Thank you very much for all the support and help, Heather! Believe me when I say, I am feeling much better now than I did just a few hours ago. It feels really nice to be back on Scarleteen <3

Re: Break-up

Thank you for your support Heather. It makes me feel a lot better knowing that there are many people experiencing similar things out there. Sexuality is something that I seek in a relationship, since without it I fail to connect to that person to the fullest, which affects my love for them in the en...

Re: Break-up

Thank you for your prompt and comforting reply Heather! In the country I live in, homosexuality is unfortunately still a taboo. With that regard, it is common for many homosexual people to feel the urge to cover up their sexual orientation - and they mostly get into a long term relationship or even ...

Break-up

Dear Scarleteen Family, It has been quite a while since I last wrote here. I am a 23 year-old straight woman, fresh out of a two yearlong relationship. I am pretty good at coping with breakups most of the time, since this was not my first heartbreak. However, there is something that keeps me from sl...

Re: Being single

He was more like a nice guy than rude. The next day I was feeling so bad and I cried for a while, but now I am much better. I guess it was because it was my first time sleeping with someone other than my ex... I felt like I betrayed myself because I once promised myself not to involve in any kind of...

Re: Being single

Hi again, I’m here with an update, well that guy I mentioned before and I have slept. He didn’t forced me into it, I wanted it at that moment. But now I kind of regret it. Like a lot. I have a quite huge hickey on the left of my neck, and I’m freaking out my mom would find out. I am always concealin...

Re: Being single

I am so happy to be single right now. One of the reasons why I don't want a romantic relationship for now is to get to know myself and what I want. I also want to work really hard to achieve my goals, especially the ones about my future career. I'm doing great in my German course, I borrowed some bo...

Re: Being single

That is exactly what I am doing whenever I miss him. I either read a book or watch a movie... i sometimes draw quick sketches... I guess, I realized that I can love a new person, he was not my last chance... I always feel like it is not possible to love someone new, right after break up. But with de...

Re: Being single

It definitely does make sense. I noticed that I’ve been thinking about my ex much less than I did a a few days ago, probably because I’m somehow interested in this guy, which makes me question my love for my ex. It seems like, focusing on another person helps me forget about how heartbroken I am and...

Re: Being single

Actually yes, some part of me feels like we are still in a relationship, that is muted, if that makes any sense :D For example, I met a nice guy in the course, and we talked a bit after class, he seems really kind. I don't know if he likes me but he told me that he saw me once in college (he is a re...

Re: Being single

Hi Sam, What I mean by saying I was influenced in a bad way is that at first when we broke up, it was a mutual decision and I told him that even though it hurts to be breaking up, I knew deep down in my heart that it is the best for us to end our relationship, since we might possibly not be able to ...

Re: Being single

Thank you, Heather. Well, I didn't actually think about it that way before. Again, I was influenced by my parents, they told me not to tell her about this since this might not be considered as cheating... they told me to talk to her about how i feel about this boy and my concerns about her... I, onc...

Re: Being single

Well, it is a bit complicated... when i am talking to my mom I always initiate the conversation about my ex, since she is the only one that I talk about my feelings. Talking to her doesn’t make me sad but it certainly affects the pace of moving on. Anyways, as I told you in my previous posts, only t...

Re: Being single

Well, my parents don't want me to live alone, yet. I'm planning to study abroad after I graduate from my current school, which will be in at least 3 years, so I will be living alone or with a friend but definitely away from my parents then. Some of my friends are moving in with their friends from co...

Re: Being single

I totally agree with you with all these. One of these friends who is studying abroad is saying such stuff with all that "what if"s... The reason why she is acting that way is I guess, my ex's mom sending her a friend request while spamming me on facebook. She somehow thinks that my ex's mo...

Re: Being single

It would definitely be better for me to expand my friend circle. One of my close friends is living abroad, so I don't see her so often and when she is away we don't hang out that much with our common friend, who is my other close friend. :lol: I have some friends from college, and one of them lives ...

Re: Being single

We don't argue that much since most of the time I don't insist... But she sometimes gets super mad at people or something going on in her life and she kind of reflects it on me. After the breakup, it's been almost two months now, my mom and dad supported me for like a week but then they were getting...

Thank you Sam, that article really helped. I'll definitely tell my friends to do so. I want to share something else with you, if you don't mind. I have some problems also with my mom... She is acting as if she is bipolar and we don't get along well most of the time. For example, she told me that it ...

Re: Being single

Yes, that is exactly what the actual problem is. If we did not have any mutual friends, I would probably be okay right now... But since we have mutual friends, even my parents are added on his social media accounts, I feel like if he posts something about a new girl they will directly text me saying...

Re: Being single

Even though I know we are not in a battle with my ex and instead actually on good terms, I feel like everyone would pity me if I am single when he is with someone else. In my previous breakups, I got into rebound relationships once in 3 weeks and the other one in 3 months, the latter one makes me th...

Re: Being single

Hey Heather, Actually, I really don't know why I feel this way about letting my close friends know how I feel... It may be because I'm afraid to show them my weaknesses. When I am in a relationship, it takes me a little while to show my feelings I have for my partner... For now, I really don't want ...
