All you can do is present the facts, as you have done. Explain to her that you have no problem with disagreeing with opinions of the facts, but there's nothing to discuss if there are "two sets" of facts. This is a big red flag for you future. If she persists, you'll have to make a choice.
Since you really have no idea, stop creating drama in your own head. If he calls back, he does. If not, move on. Life is too short to keep worry about whether or not someone else approves of you. Most importantly, approve of yourself.
You need to find out what the family dynamics growing up were like. Your husband's guilt could be part of him growing up and being told that he needs to take care and be responsible for his younger brother. Some short-term therapy for both of you would be advised.
Talk to your lady friend about this in a respectful way and tell her your concerns. If she recognizes what you see in her mother, it's a good sign. If she gets defensive or doesn't see it, that's a warning sign for your future.
There are no classes, but there is always dating advice available. I recommend becoming part of a theme-oriented group instead of a dating group. That way the emphasis is not on the meet-up but rather everyone in the group has a shared interest. Examples are: political groups; activity groups such as cycling; hiking clubs; photography clubs; etc. The interaction with others occurs organically rather than being forced.
You are right about them being your issues. If you've gone out several times, you might want to think about talking with him about your fears and explain why. He may offer you some insight and make you feel more comfortable.
You both need to tell them how uncomfortable it makes you feel when they go too far in public. If it continues, you two should not go out with them.
Explain the situation to her. If she continues, she is not being respectful of you, and you need to move on. No one should feel pressured to do something that they really don't want to do.
Just tell her that while you both appreciate her concern, you would very much appreciate it if she would not tell you how to live your life or try to guilt you. Some religious fanatics seem to think they have a license to lecture those who do not believe the same things they do or do no behave in what they feel is right. Set a firm boundary. If she starts again, smile and walk away.
Some people don't consider e-cards, texts or anything digital to be the same as hard copy. The argument goes that digital things don't take as much effort, so they're not as good. In 2018 many people (including me) send e-cards. They can be much more animated.
Hey, if it works, it works. Don't overanalyze it. Just enjoy. Definitely cute!! Relax and go with the flow.
Yes, you should. Don't meet up with him for a few days after posting it. It would be a bait and switch if you did not update. Really not worth taking a chance. You'd want to know what he really thinks BEFORE meeting up with him.
Ask to meet her at the mall, and explain to her what happened. That way you are face-to-face. It's always best to handle these types of matters in person.
The best thing I can tell you is what a cousin of mine said when I lost my wife to cancer. There will be a large gaping hole in your heart that will never close, but you'll get used to the draft coming through it. Every love is different, so you probably won't have the same love for another person in the same way, but you can love someone else in time. Be patient with yourself.
Definitely not always. As an example, if someone is quite overweight and asks you how they look, it would not be cool to tell them, "Yes, you are very fat." Being dishonest to try to con someone is not a good policy, but being careful not to hurt someone sometimes requires little "white lies."
One cannot measure love directly because it's an abstract concept, but the reward circuit in the brain can be observed and quantified. The brain lights up when something pleasureful is introduced. So the effects of an object of love can definitely be seen.
If it makes you uncomfortable, you shouldn't go. However, if you're willing to take a chance, it could work out well. It will give you an idea of how the two of you will get along in a more intense situation. You'll know better how to move forward one way or the other.
At 17 1/2 I'm doubtful any law enforcement agency will pursue it even if he files. Obviously, he's trying to control you, and I'm guessing there are much deeper issues than just your boyfriend. Don't do anything because it will only provoke him.
The most solid romantic relationships often start with being really good friends first. If your friendship is that strong, it will only enhance your relationship. Relax and enjoy. If it's to be, you'll know soon enough.
Have him define "more time." Insist that he keep to his word. Clearly, his brother has used up his welcome. You don't say if there are extenuating circumstances, so consider the whole picture before drawing a hard line.
You can't. You are not trained to handle that, and you are too close. The best thing you can do is to get her professional help. This is a traumatic experience for her and needs to be handled very delicately by someone who understands trauma.
Talk to a local LGBTQ organization. They have people who have been through your situation and will be able to give you first-hand perspective and advice. They are in the best position to help you.
Get some help from a professional so that you can examine the reasons your parents are divorcing from your perspective. This way you can avoid some things. This will help offset the fact that you are at higher risk because of your parents.
Don't do a movie. You'll spend almost two hours together with no interaction between you. Dinner and/or something fun to do together is a much better idea. I always encourage some activity that allows two people to continuously interact.
Actually, current research suggests that it's true. What happens is not that it actually is improved but rather that marijuana slows the perception of time down, so it seems like orgasms are lasting longer. Edibles seems to make it even last longer.
