I'm in a relationship but have a friend who wants more. She got hurt that I didn't abandon my relationship for her. How can I keep her a friend without making her feel like an option or second option? I do like her, but the time is not right and may never be. Sad I may have to let the friend go.
If you’re serious about the current relationship you’re in knowing that your friend wants more , your friend is going to have to respect that and leave you alone. In fact , you should respect your relationship and girlfriend more than to keep another girl around knowing that she wants to be more than friends. There is nothing wrong with having friends of the opposite sex , it’s when boundaries are crossed that makes it a problem.
If 2 people are in love and believe they're soulmates 🙄 but seem to always bump heads and aren't doing anything to progress their lives individually, is life too short to part ways and focus on a better life or more success? Should they stay together and value their love more than $ or materials
Love or being in love should NOT cause you to lose yourself to the point where you are not making progress in your own individual lives. You can be in a successful relationship and still achieve your goals, and some couples have mutual or common goals to achieve -so it won’t seem unrequited like only one person is progressing in life while the other is just sitting back and doing nothing. It never works that way. Love and life progress should be a TEAM effort. Otherwise it’s just a waste of time, it’s toxic, and you should move on and focus on YOU. Especially if you’re always butting heads.
The reason why i asked about how my boyfriend is pushing me away is that we have child together and she in dcf custody right now. We both been fighting to get her back. We both been depressed ever sense. Like we would argue over the smallest things or he would call me names.we been together for 3yrs
If he’s calling you names , then that makes him less than a man to be disrespectful to the mother of his child. I know the both of you are going through something and I’m sure you have your moments too. During trying times it’s best to maturely be considerate of each others feelings and have effective communication because you both have the same goal at this point.
I never could figure that out but in my opinion, those are rebound relationships used to attempt to conceal hurt and possibly accountability. It’s best to take time to heal then move on so you don’t have baggage in the next relationship for the new person to carry.
