I broke up with my ex about 4 months ago after a very long term relationship. He became very controlling and verbally abusive towards me during the last 6 months. Overall, I'd rate the relationship a good one but we definitely had our ups and downs. We never lived together but he really was pushing for that during the last year together. Since our breakup he has tried to reach me by text under the guise of "caring for my well being" and wanting to share what's been going on with him since "we were partners for almost 7 years". I have not replied except for one time and just told him I'm...

I started dating a man who is 71 yrs old and I am 55 yrs old about 2 1/2 months ago. I was crazy about him. I noticed he was very sensitive about his age. But when I looked at him I didn't see age. We slept together about 4 weeks after we started dating. After our first time together he made a comment about how I probably was going to move on because we already had sex. Ughh. Then he started making more hurtful remarks. Just out of no where. He belittled my feelings for him actually the whole time we have been together. Broke up with me 3 times as well. Each time something happened my feeli...

I'm not sure there's any properly coherent way that I'll be able to explain this, so I'll just do so in bullet points: -I fell head over heels in love with this guy (I'll call him C) who my friends and I are almost certain felt the same. (~Early 2019) -I thought everything was going extremely well between us, even though I had to go away for 6 weeks or so (Jul 2019) - when I came back everything was still really good, and I was about to take the first proper steps with us. (Sep 2019) -I then find out literally the day before I was going to tell C how I felt, that another girl (who he ...

My husband and I are driving to another state to spend Christmas with kids/grandkids. We are struggling financially to the point that our son is paying for our gas for the trip down. I just can't get past the awful feeling that we can't afford presents for everyone. The kids say "Don't worry about it" but I feel like a terrible grandma. How can I get over this feeling and enjoy the holiday?...

Hello all, thanks for listening, I'll try to be brief. I am in a desperate situation with my family. Basically, my older sister moved back home with my dad 2 years ago, because drinking took away her ability to be successfully self-employed and thus pay rent. My dad got sick of bailing her out but didn't want to see her stuck so she moved back home. The drinking continued, in the evening only, she complained non stop about how awful it was living at home, a very negative way of looking at life, all fuelled by drink. She is a horrible person when she is drunk, and then during the day she is com...
