You need to talk to a therapist that specializes in this problem.
Scientifically, it's a chemical reaction in the brain that can be seen by imaging. But we all know it means so much more than that. Everyone has her/his own definition.
You need to have a talk with him and express what you need. You can also ask him why he doesn't do anything. It's important that you get your needs met if the relationship is going to work.
You tell her simply that you can't afford it. It's the truth. She needs to know that there are also others that probably can't come because they can't afford it. And don't feel guilty. You are doing the right thing if you can't go.
It depends where you live. Keep in mind that even big corporations are now entering the business. Ask him to explain the details to you so you feel more comfortable.
You need to sit down with her and have a serious talk. You need to work out a payment plan. She needs to take responsibility. You also may want to reevaluate your relationship.
If you don't know, why ask. Give him the benefit of the doubt. Just be a gracious receiver and enjoy your day. It may be that your definition of "shady" isn't all that shady.
People should be open with each other about whatever they have if they are planning to have a family because of genetics. Discuss all of this with a medical doctor and a therapist.
It all depends on the two people. "Opposites attract." "People who are the same are attracted to each other." Both are true, and both are simply justifications for being together. Enjoy.
Tell her something or ask her a question. Before she responds, ask her what her understanding of the statement or question is. That will tell you what she does and/or does not understand.
Shame on you for trying to fat shaming!!
Tell her you want to have a serious talk and ask that she please listen to you before reacting. Present facts, not feelings. And listen to what she says, as well. If she continues to choose her bestie over you, you have a decision to make.
Absolutely tell your gf because if you reject her sister, I guarantee the younger sister will make up stuff about you! Get ahead of the problem, otherwise you'll come off as just being defensive.
The best advice would be to talk with others of your culture who have experienced the same thing. Unfortunately, many parents place their children in a situation where the children are being asked to choose between family and relationships. It's too bad they don't realize what they're doing.
As the saying goes, love is blind. Your father does not want to hear anything negative. As long as he is competent, there's nothing you can really do other than keep presenting the facts.
The fact that you're gay has nothing to do with the decision. As with any relationship in which there's a significant age difference, it's entirely up to what the two people are comfortable with.
Explain exactly what you just said, but leave with love. Tell him you love him, and you want it to work, but the problems have to be addressed if it's going to work.
You should say, "You have every right to break up with me, but I didn't realize that you had no class." Leave it at that.
I think you have to be honest about your finances. If you lose her, you'll know she really is a princess or gold digger. Tell her your situation. That's the best way forward.
The key to relationships is good communication. Let a couple of days go by and then reconnect. Work on problem solving not winning the argument
It's not fair to bring children into this world unless both partners are on board. The other option is to split up and be a single parent.
Unless your partner decides not to have anything to do with them, yes, they will always interfere. Tough choice, but you'll have to make it.
Usually, yes. You don't have to split each and every thing, but overall expenses should be shared
You either go together, or neither goes. They'll get the message. Your partner needs to have your back
He's your cheerleader for you. You need to focus on you first.
