Minor disagreements are normal in relationships. Major fights are a different story. You don't say what the argument is about. If it's something that's really important to you, you should stand your ground. If it can't be resolved, then, yes, you should break up. You are correct that it is not good for either of you.
Hmmmm??? Your bf is gaslighting you? Those tests have been around a long time and are quite valid. Simply put, it's time for a new boyfriend, not one that continues to stay in denial.
I'm always in favor of something cute. It may appear corny, but if there is any interest at all on her part, it's a good way to go. Tangible things often work quite well, despite eye rolling.
You should not have to go anywhere that you are made uncomfortable. I'm sure your partner is not comfortable either, but it's his family. If he's open to it, both of you should sit down with his family and tell them how you feel. Neither of you should be subjected to not being treated well.
While it's not legal right now, it will be in 18 days. Especially in CA, there's not going to be a lot of enforcement now. So, probably the answer is YES, just ignore it now unless it's really out of hand. The only exception is that it has been clearly researched that pot use in adolescence can cause a stoppage in growth of the frontal cortex, the decision-making and impulsivity center of the brain.
In this day and age your friends and this guy are right. Have him thoroughly checked out. That way you'll be able to be in the relationship without worrying. If something shows up, you can end it. Be confident in your decision.
Since she will not take a subtle hint, you are left with no choice but to be direct. "I am flattered by your wanting to go out with me, but I respectfully am declining. Thank you in advance for respecting my decision." That should do it.
The easiest and most effective way to handle this is to tell your story including a picture of the movie stub. Many would say to ignore it, but that will just give her permission to continue. Don't say anything negative about her. Just present the facts.
Male or female, there is no “number one” answer. There are some relatively similar answers in the top five or six characteristics, but everybody is individual so the answers vary greatly.
Love Shopping List was designed to empower you to make better relationship choices. It was not designed to have the final say so in your decision. Ultimately, you have to go with what is in your heart. Fortunately, you have two good choices from what you described.
This sounds more like you were experimenting with your sexuality. It doesn’t mean you’re gay or bi. Regardless of what he says or anybody else says, never do anything that you are uncomfortable with.
You will have to get out of your comfort zone. It is actually not very complicated. Just go up to her and introduce yourself. That is a good start. Yes, you have a risk, but it might be worth.
You have every right to expect that you not be criticized especially in your own house. If your husband is not going to stand up to his parents, then you most certainly should. Do it in a respectful fashion, but lay down firm boundaries.
It is up to the parents in the house. Everyone has different beliefs regarding the proper age. Parents’ house, parents’ rules. A lot depends upon the culture and the religious believes of the parents.
Social scientists have estimated that, yes, it takes decades. That doesn't mean the relationship is not good up to that point, but it just takes a very long time to iron out the inevitable differences. Like everything else worthwhile, relationships take a lot of work.
I can't say I would not do the same thing as your bf. Yes, you can stand up for yourself, but no one should be subjected to that. I know there are many who say that the physical "violence" is not the way to handle it, but sometimes you just have to go with your gut reaction.

If you've not given her any other reason to not trust, then SHE has issues with trust. I'm guessing you're upset with both of them and rightfully so. If she persists, get a new gf
You don't need to say a thing. Look at them, smile, and don't say a word. That's a classy way to handle it. If that doesn't work, tell them that opinions are like a-holes, everybody has one.
If you were honest and not just filling in characteristics that your bf already has, the score is legit. BUT, listen to your parents' concerns. Then go from there.
First, talk to your gf. You don't know what other issues are involved between the two of them. She may want to handle it herself or she may want to have both of you sit down with her sis. Talk it out.
I would not confront them because I don't think they would listen. I would tell your bf that you are no longer comfortable being around them and that he needs to deal with it.
Your bf is smart. Don't give her any more opinions. You can certainly tell her why. You are NOT her therapist and should not be put in that kind of situation.

Yes, but several things have to take place. First, the infidelity must be addressed openly and apologized for unconditionally. Then the couple will need a strong couples therapist to guide them through. Anything less than a 100% commitment won't work.
