Ask A Guy: Does My Boyfriend Really Mean What He Says?


My boyfriend and I have been going out for about three months now. We’ve already had sex and I think we took it way too fast.  He says he wants to be with me forever and that he loves me- I mean, could see us being like that but does he really mean it or is he just saying what he thinks I want to hear?

He’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me, but sometimes he won’t call or text the whole day. It makes me feel unloved but I don’t know how to let him know that without him getting mad. He’s like “Oh yeah, I’ll text you tomorrow.” Then he doesn’t! It makes me angry but I don’t want to be like “Why didn’t you text me?!?”

How do I know if he really means what he’s saying or if he’s full of it? 

Read our guy’s response after the jump!

As far as what you’re asking goes, it sounds to me like “young love”. I don’t mean that to be insulting – it is a nice thing. But the reason I say it is that it’s something I would have said years ago in an early relationship. And when I said it, I would have meant it…

Thing is though, as I had more relationships – more falling in love and then eventually the break-up, more ups, more downs, more experience – my perspective changed and the way I was in relationships changed too… for the better. Sure, people get jaded by breakups, sometimes for a month, sometimes for several months (or longer), but the ups and the downs of relationships are both really good things.

My point is that in the moments he’s with you, he probably does mean it. At the same time, love does not mean that you should expect him to pick up the phone all the time or text you constantly. Guys, lovable as we can be, usually like to use the phone to make a plan and that’s that. We don’t like chit-chat if it’s not towards a purpose – just not how we’re wired. I would say that if he says he’s going to text or call you, he should do that… But just because somebody should do something doesn’t mean they will, for whatever reason.

My feeling is that you should take this as an opportunity to learn how to deal with this sort of thing… It’s not the last time that it will happen and I can tell you that as good as I try to be, I’ll occasionally do what you’re talking about… Doesn’t mean I don’t love my girl, just means… well… I’m busy! ;)

But be that as it may, it does bother you and my bet is that you are trying to figure out a way to address it without making him defensive or damaging the relationship.

First and foremost, get a handle about how you feel about it. A trap that I see a lot of couples fall into is that one person is annoyed by what the other one is doing, but instead of figuring out a constructive way to address it, they just hold resentment towards the other person to a degree.

When I say address it, I don’t necessarily mean talking it out. Sometimes that’s the best way to go and I’ll share my thoughts on that in a moment, but sometimes half the issue is how you feel about it and think about it. Do the other person a favor and at least look at the way you’re acting and handling the situation too. In this scenario, I’m not pointing any fingers, I’m just saying it’s a smart thing to do because it will give you insight into how you are and clarity on the whole situation.

Generally speaking, I think it’s destructive in a relationship to think about things in terms of what someone is doing right or wrong (whether it’s you or the guy you’re with.) It’s better to just think about what’s happening and where you’re coming from in all of it.

Some things to consider: Personally, in a relationship, if someone doesn’t do what I expect them to do, I usually forgive them… the first time… maybe the first couple of times. But when they consistently do the same thing and it is something that just doesn’t work for me and I feel like it’s reasonable for me to expect it, I do bring it up.

I would say it should be as simple as, “OK, you’re doing this and it makes me feel this way (whatever it is you feel) and it makes me think this… Can you give me a reason that would help me understand why this keeps happening?” And let him talk… I would say go for understanding, don’t go for resolution. When you put it to him like that, you’re not blaming him, you’re just telling him how you feel and asking for an explanation you can understand. He won’t get defensive if you put it in these terms.

On the other hand, you definitely do NOT want to come from a place of blaming, assuming or attacking. It sounds obvious when I write it out, but in real life, you do need to keep clear on where you’re coming from. Understanding is a good spot.

Adding to this point, I would also avoid words like “never” and “always” when it comes to things he does. Let me tell you, nothing makes me angrier faster than having a woman tell me I “always” do something (whatever it is) wrong or that I “never” do something (whatever it is) right. Avoid those words and you’ll have much fewer arguments. :)

There’s nothing wrong with sharing how you feel with a guy. In fact, if you tell a guy what he’s doing that you don’t like and how it makes you feel, that’s one of the best ways to help the guy get where you’re coming from. I would say a good rule is to never assume your guy knows the things he’s “supposed” to know or “should” know without you telling him. Again, you’ll avoid a lot of arguments.

Now, I want to make a point here because this is usually the place where jaded women will say, “Of course not! Stupid men don’t know anything!” To that point, guys know plenty and we really do our best. But guess what… what made our last girlfriend happy sometimes is totally different from what makes you happy. And smart guys know the best thing is never to assume we know what a woman wants… we want women to give us clues that are extremely visible-from-space obvious. And no, “clues” to a guy does not include a facial expression, voice tone or some kind of hint. Clues means basically a roadmap.

Bottom line: If you show your boyfriend exactly how to make you happy, he will do his best to do it. To a man, a woman who is thoroughly happy with him is a beautiful woman.

In fact, I would even be so bold as to say that a man will almost inevitably leave a woman if he does not believe he can make her happy. So this is something you want to be clear on. You want to make sure you let him know when he’s successful and you want to make sure he knows how he can make you happy if he’s doing something that is making you unhappy.

Do not use this in a manipulative way though. It will backfire, don’t try it.

Hello,
I just want to ask how do you know when enough is enough? What if you have tried to understand his actions twice and he kept repeating it (such as flirting on social media behind your back). When do you leave the relationship?
Thank you

Ok, I was involved with a guy some yrs ago. We hit it off really well until be took a sudden change for the worse. It was nothing for me to call or text and ask if I could come over and what not. That went on for months until the other woman can into the picture. I knew it was someone else but I just couldn’t catch him in the act at first. But before all of this happen, I told him that I loved him and his response was not what I wanted to hear. All he could say was, “It was to be expected.” ……Really dude!!!! For years this has been haunting me. So here it is some 14 yrs later once married now divorced with a child by his ex wife, I’ve found myself back talking to him and constantly wondering what if or what could have been between us if we had gotten married instead of those two. I really want to tell him I felt when he picked her over me (thinking the grass was so much greener on the other side…NOT) but I am totally scared because I don’t want to go through that again with him. But my question or questions to you are…….should I tell him how I really feel now and how I felt then and what does IT WAS TO BE EXPECTED really means?…….in guy terms that is……lol…..

Thanks~

I recently got back in touch with a guy I dated 10 years ago, hadn’t seen him in 7 years. I texted him out of the blue to say hi and ask how he was doing and if he remembered me. His response was way better than I expected – not only did he remember me, but he said I had always been in his mind and he had hoped we would get back together at some point. We were able to talk about things that had haunted me for years and I got answers to them. Now, having said this, we are not happy ever after, I don’t expect that, I have no clue where we will go from here, if anywhere. We did get together one time and it was a great evening – had some deep conversations and a lot of fun and did a lot of catching up. We are both different people from 10 years ago yet we share that history. My point is, yes, go ahead and contact him but DO NOT HAVE ANY EXPECTATIONS! You don’t know where he is in his life right now or how he feels. Keep it casual – just wanted to say hi, how are you doing. See how he reacts. Don’t tell him how you feel now. You can talk about how you felt then if the discussion goes that way (for both of you, not just you). And if it goes well, definitely ask him what he meant by IT WAS TO BE EXPECTED. Sometimes you can have so much more clarity into a situation when you’re no longer in it and a significant amount of time has passed by. Hopefully you will get your answers but again, remember, it may not be the answers you want. But it could be as well. Do not over think it (as we women have a tendency to do) and again, don’t have any expectations and do not contact him from a point of view that you want something from him (i.e. being needy). But, wow, it is amazing to revisit good experiences with someone that you haven’t spoken to in years if they are also open to it. Good luck! :)

Ok so this might sound kinda stupid but I need some advise. I’m 19 and I have an app on my phone called “meet me” my friend convinced me to go on it. Mostly everyone on there uses it like a dating site and it’s a lot like a mini Facebook. Well I had this guy message me this charming message and from there we pretty much hit it off. His name is Vince and he’s a marine stationed in Hawaii for the next year otherwise he lives near me. We’ve been talking for about four months now and at first everything was great but now I barley hear from him maybe once to twice a week. I don’t blow up his phone I’m not that type of girl but once and a while I’ll send him a cute message but leave it at that. He’s also asked me to be his gf already and I told him I would try seeing that it’s a long distance thing. I understand that he has his duties and I respect and honor that but he still has that dating app and I’m not sure if I trust that he’s not just playing me. And what kind threw me off is he txted me before he left for sea ” I miss you already your my world” so I really don’t know what to think I’m kinda just going with the flow of things and texting him whenever I hear from him. What should I do?

So I have been texting back and forth a lot with a guy I met while I was in Las Vegas. He lives there. He was the one who always had the conversation going, asking interesting questions, being genuine, if he wasnt at work or sleeping he would text, voice massage, send pics and videos. He also spoke about the future, what my plans were, he told me his plans, he always would say I was amazing, his queen, his co workers referred to me as his GF, he told his mom, sister, brother, and father about me. This went on for 7 weeks, and then it started to slow down.. When I questioned his interest, he said he was extremely busy with work and when he wasn’t he was extremely tired. Yesterday he went out with friends and got really drunk, so today jokingly I asked “how many girls did you hit on?” He said he was too drunk to remember but if I was there it would have been perfect. Now I am confused. I questioned him “is this why the lack of communication, because there are other girls?” He remained with his story that he was tired or working. He said he wouldn’t be mad if I talked to guys, but it would suck if I cut him off because he really cared and liked me. Now I am confused. Should I be angry that he’s sleeping or could be sleeping with other people? Or hanging around other girls? We are not officially together. Is it ok that because of circumstances that we are long distant “friends” who are “interested” in each other that we MAY see other people without being upset? Am I overthinking this? Could he be waiting til we meet again to make it official? I mean I understand a man will be a man, he has his needs, and unlike women, men NEED to have those met.

Okay, so I like this guy whose a grade above me and he just broke up with my friend whose in my class and I’ve liked him even before they went out and I’m not sure if he likes me. I have a breathing condition and when someone would ask why I can’t do as much phisical activity like P.E he would get all defensive of me and say “dude she has a breathing problem give her a break” and he would sometimes go out of his way to make me laugh. I’m not sure if that’s just cause we’re friends or if he likes me. But TBH we’re not that close as friends so what does that mean?

I’ve been in a relationship for over a year now.It’s a long distance several hours apart. He has come to see me every weekend and vacations. He was hurt bad by a cheating wife he’s alone and a good man with a good heart. He is insecure about himself. Through his tears and my own trying to convince him I would not mistreat him he ends up mistreating me.
Over time we have kept talking it out. Many times I feared losing him and many times fought for myself to keep from walking away.
At times I felt he was begging me to leave yet holding on.
He still calls and text everyday and we tell each other 20 or more times a day we love each other.
I admit I have been made to feel insecure because of all the false accusing he has done and have told him so.
It had gotten so bad that with all the love and pain I told him he had to stop accusing me or we would not make it. I love him so much and he was killing me.He did admit to his insecurities and said he did not want to lose me.
We have talked about the future. Living together , kind of ingagement ring and our home to be.
He does a lot of the talking and planning as much as me.

Lately I’ve been feeling he’s giving me an ultimatum. He still comes to see me but it’s in he says and doesn’t say.
He’s not talking of our future because he says he knows what he wants and he’s not going anywhere yet he says now he can’t leave his life there. When before it’s all he wanted was come to where I am.
He says I do love you and I am not leaving you?
I have always been loving and faithful to him.I have suffered real pain from him and still remained by him.
This weekend he was drinking and again accused me of looking at men. Now I do know men find me attractive and he has told me it wouldn’t be as hard for me finding someone.
He is losing his hair and has skin problems that makes him feel unattractive but I accept him unconditionally.

I feel if I let go I will lose him after all this time, love and pain.
I feel we would be throwing away a beautiful thing.
I don’t want to leave him and don’t want him to leave me.

But the back and forth and the hurt it causes. It used to be when I cried he was just as concerned about my feelings,
Now I don’t think he feels the same. Although he’s playful with my sons and acting out love.

When he leaves and is away hesays things to make me feel different.

Could he be playing games and not realizing how bad it hurts?
And why would he keep doing it when I tell him it hurts?

He’s threatened to leave me so many times before for no reason and I have fought for us so hard.
My family and kids love him.I love him.
Why does he behave this way.
Should I give another ultimatum?

Online dating site I met boyfriend in october. The first week talked/texted about everything got to know alot about eachother & seemed to hit it off I fell hard even before we met. After that met eachother had ***.then decided together that were exclusive. The passion was intense. The next 2 months sent pic mail sent sweet texts called me saw eachother 2 times aweek, a couple nights a week phone ***. He seemed to be into me.We live 1hr20min away from eachother. I feel comfortable with telling him my feelings and whats bothering me, he tells me what i want to hear. 6 months & he says loves me finally. Then everything changed hes always busy working I initiate everything now texts call visits *** etc…Barely see 1 week now sometimes 0 times week.he doesnt care about my life or how my day was. When I ask whats the issue is he makes me out to be crazy. That he just busy with work & he loves me & I have nothing to worry about that its all in my head. I just have this bad feeling that hes playing games with me and its a sick game to him. Im confused. Am I crazy? I have ongoing bad feeling that somethings not right, that im going to get hurt even more than i am now. Could fear from past hurts be ruining current relationship by thinking to much.

I’ve been married for almost 3 years but we’ve been together for almost 5, so when he does something a few times that bothers me to a certain point I tell him how I feel about it. He gets upset & acts like I’ve told him it was his fault when I haven’t. How am I supposed to handle that?

Hi,I’ve been dating a guy for 6yrs & 4months. We were so much in love with each other over a sudden he stoped call or texting me unless I call or text him that when he will reply. We would be mad at each other for days. And when he calls he would want us to be together and have sex without talking about our difference and he tell me he loves me very much and forget. What made us mad. One not fine day he called me to tell me that I should forget him and move on with my life when I ask why he did answer me and ended the call an hour later he call to me that he got back with his ex-girlfriend and that she was pregnant for him….I was soo shocked I just couldn’t believe that he chatted on me and he told me himself. I never talked to him for a month. He called me 2days ago saying he wants to see me and to talk to me.I met him and we ended up having sex.he told me that he was sorry for everything he did and he wants us to be together again,but I should give him space to sort out the mess he made and make it up to me
. Is he really telling the truth? Am so confused with what he is telling help me

Why is this I no 100000% he cares for me but it’s weird it’s like he only seems to tell me he loves me when he’s seen me or with me? Like we have arguments about what I’m doing on the out and it really gets to him the things I could be upto with other men!! But then he can say some horrible hurtful things and then ring me back seconds after telling me he don’t mean what he said and he’s angry cos he cares for me and dus not want me doing anything to spoil what we have so he takes hes aggression out on me. He’s very insecure and has been hurt in the past it feels like he dus not want to love me because he dus not want to get hurt again. Please help?? Thanks :)

Hi Eric,
I met dis guy in October last year, he seems to be into me but I’m not sure he is done with his ex tho he said he ain’t inlove with her anymore then he went further to say something that is really confusing and I need your help to explain it to me. He said “situations change” when i asked him if they are still together. Then I told him along the line that since we have knwn each other for like 7 months now, he knws me enough to knw if he wants a relationship with me or not, then he said “I’d rather respond to that in person” and dat he will be back soon. Why didn’t he just tell me what he wanted during our chat? Eric, what do you think? I’m really confused

My boyfriend of about 5 months used to text or call me each day, and now he doesn’t. I have been acting like it doesn’t bother me but I’m realizing now it does. We are long distance now, and I feel like it is more important to be in contact. How do I bring it up in a way that helps him see where I am coming from and not seem needy or clingy or like I am blaming/attacking him.

I met my BF over a dating website 2 and a half months ago, everything was going great, it is a long distance relationship, we’d talk for hours everyday, he’d call whenever he can, and text as well, then slowly that changed, we’d only talk once a day, it’s like it became a routine, and then I found out he is still using the dating website, I did confront him and he was all sweet about it, said it was no big deal and he won’t use it, but he did, when I confronted him again, he was like, he’s online because his mobile keeps showing that status cuz the app sometimes runs in the background, doesnt mean he’s using it, and then he got pissed about it cuz i brought the subject up while he was on vacation while we rarely got to talk properly, he eventually canceled the account, but now i feel like I dont trust him, when we talk now it feels weird, and he keeps texting while talking to me on the phone, I can hear the clicks, but he keeps on denying it and it gets him angry when I say stop texting, he’d be like, I AM NOT TEXTING. is he hiding something, or just avoiding conflict? he said that i’m acting like a detective now, everytime i text, makes him feel like a cry of attention, although i do it the same way i did before, and if i ask what are you up to, it makes him feel like i’m being a detective following up on every move of his, he says he loves me, he says he’s visiting in a couple of months to see me, he said he is serious and only wants to be with me, and once we meet in person and see how it goes, we might get engaged, but i don’t know how overcome this, is the lies a bad sign, does he only need space? i really want this to work out :(

I have trouble trusting my best friend/boyfriend. We started off as friends and we messed around a little bit before he started seeing this other girl. They dated for a year and we stayed friends and became best friends and we all got along fine. His girlfriend hated that we were so close though. Then they broke up and a few months later he started maked the moves on me. and I’ve been attracted to him I just never said anything because he was with someone else and I DONT CHEAT. He has cheated in relationships before and while he has a good heart he sometimes does not make the best choices. After his break up with his girlfriend he started seeing this other girl a week or two after, I told him it was too soon after his ex and he needed to take time for himself but of course he didnt listen till she moved away and started dating….another girl, he was having sex with a lesbian….and a month or so after that he started talking to me more and more and we went upnorth together to visit one of my friends. He started to show more and more signs that he wanted me as more then a friend and we discussed it. At this time in my mind there was no question, I did not want to be with him. But then he kept trying and trying and talking to people (my co-workers mainly) about dating me and how crazy he was about me and as time went on whenever we talked we started getting in little fights and disagreements. and then I told him we needed to talk about all the moodiness happening. He told me when we met up that he cant stand the thought of never having me again and would do anything to have me….at the time I said there wasnt a way…and my heart was breaking when I said it. I do love and care for him very much but at that time it was like a brother. After that encounter we all continued to hangout as friends but then one day I saw him differnetly and i wanted him. now we are dating but I have had a hard time trusting him and he knows why. I’ve seen him in past relationships. There is more to it but maybe I shouldnt even be sharing here.

I’ve always known my bf saves naked pictures of other girls for pleasuring purposes and been fine with it but recently since having the implant put in I’m struggling to accept it, we’ve spoken about how it makes me feel and he said he would delete them but since then he’s just hidden them under a password on his phone, I asked him to delete them in front of me and he said no, he’ll delete them later… I thought he respected my views but it turns out he’s been lying to me about it this whole time. I don’t know what to do since we’ve always said honesty is a big thing in our relationship. What else has he lied about?

Yeah I too saw a dirty picture of some porn star on my boyfriend’s phone as well. I wasn’t snooping around, I just happened to see it there as he was browsing through some photos he had on there to show me something.

I didn’t say anything and wasn’t affected by it as I know guys need that sort of stimulation from other sources other than you (as long as it doesn’t get out of hand)

Are the photos he’s saving from the web?

I’ve been with my boyfriend for 5 year. He has gone on vacation for 1 month without me. He’s constantly texting me how he misses me terribly snd he feels sick and bored and how he wants to cut his vacation short. I feel that he is lying to make me at ease because I’ve heard stories about his vacations in the past. Any advice? Should I doubt him or give him the benefit of the doubt?

I’d assume being with someone for 5 years you would have had to built some sort of trust foundation with them. In my opinion, there’s certainly nothing wrong with being concerned. But let’s look at the facts, you’ve been with him for 5 years and during his “vacation” you mentioned he made the effort to constantly text you (what about phone calls?), and you’re confused if you should doubt him or give him the benefit of the doubt because of what you’ve heard from other people. My advice, don’t let what others say affect your relationship, because 1) they are not apart of your relationship 2) people lie or are misinformed, now it doesn’t hurt to hear them out and see what they have to say, but don’t make any rash decisions without consulting your lover first (especially breaking the trust you two have), because it could lead to more dents in your relationship. Let’s say you do decide to doubt him, then it turns out all he was doing was really missing you. He’d probably be extremely hurt that the person he loves so much & has been with for 5 years doesn’t trust him, because you believed in other people rather than in the relationship you two have built & him.

Being affectionate over text is hard to express and understand as you don’t have the tone of voice to be emphatic in what you’re saying. The tone of the message could also be misread and misunderstood, I myself had experienced this on several occasions!

I’ve been dating a pretty great guy for a little over a month. We both have kids..I have 2 he has 1 and they are older 7, 9, 13. We met online and immediately hit it off. We laugh so much and are both great at helping each other,spoiling each other and giving each other all kinds of affection. My concern is…he has an obsession with his phone, on it texting or playing games all the time when we aren’t doing anything he will go in the garage to smoke and play on his phone. I let it go at first..maybe he needs me time. But then I found myself more and more after the kids were in bed sitting on the couch alone wishing he was there…and texting him when can we spend time together? Then he would immediately spend time with me, we laugh talk..then usually sex. Then he’d go down for a smoke and be gone for an hour. I told it bothers me…I can’t sleep when he’s down there, it plays with my head I feel like he’s picking online games over me. He assured me he wasn’t. And things were great. Then I came home he was cooking dinner and saw his phone and it had this pic of a girl and said wanna go on a date? I cooly asked him what that was about. He said it was part of an online game they just pop up. I said are you talking to any other girls…all those kinds of questions and no, no, no…you’re it. So that was Sunday I came home Thursday I was changing and his phone lit up with another one of those chicks…I made the decision to look at his phone. It was some app called Tagged and looks just like a dating service thing. I was so upset. I confronted him and asked him to leave for lying to me and keeping secrets…he said it was fake you could buy people and it wasn’t real..he’d never really talked to any of the girls…he was home with me every night. But I was like why are you telling them they are beautiful and goregous and yada yada..it hurt me so bad…he calls me that. He erased them from his phone…said he was sorry he was only using it as a game..started before we met and he didn’t know how to tell me. That he can’t bear losing me and he’s an open book…look at his phone anytime kinda thing. I want to believe him….but is he lying? I do think people can make mistakes I have in the past and I changed…I’m so confused.

He deleted the app from his phone but make sure he deletes his account! I met my ex on there and after 2 year together he was still chatting with girls, looking at their very exposed pictures and meeting up with them for sex. Don’t be fooled check his browser history!!!

Hi. Ok I’ve been dating a guy for over 3 years now. It started out as a hook up and he always told me if I wanted to see other people i should but when I did he always kinda freaked about it. Not majorly freaked but for lack of a better word… He’d start asking a ton a questions and telling me what to expect from men etc etc. He would ask if they took me to places like he did or did they do things like this! (like comparing them to himself so I’d see he was better) The last time was over a year ago. He really showed how much it bothered him. He is not an openly emotional man at all! That was the first (and only) time he told me he loves me. But he told me before and since then that we arent in a relationship that is going to progress in any way. He has his goals and that is that. He says he doesnt see any one else but wont make a commitment to be exclusive. I dont want the titles, I’m not ready to go and get married or even engaged. I mainly just wanna feel loved. I know he doesnt like to show emotion, I’ve just never really dated anyone like him before. Now that being said his actions are extremely different from his words. He acts like he loves me by doing little things to help me out, buys me flowers for holidays and i believe he does in his way. I’m just not sure if its in a friendly way or more. I do love him. I want more with him eventually. He treats me good and is a gentleman in every way. Just this wknd he went with me to my best friends wedding and he never would do anything like that before. I play things cool and I dont get emotional or confrontational but I’m confused and frustrated! There is so much more to it but I’m trying to keep it as short and simple as I can. I do not understand him! I’ve tried not to worry about it and just enjoy it. I want more or to at least know there is the potential for more.
I guess my questions is “Do I believe his actions or his words?”
P.S. I am a 33 yr old divorced mom of 2 (been divorced 5 yrs) and he is 34, never married, no kids, typical man who wants to have his house built and everything he needs before he gets married. (I think thats a good thing) He’s starting construction on the new house in a month or 2.

Doris I hate to tell you this but you haven’t got a relationship!! That is just crazy that you would waste your time on a man that you see once every 6 weeks. Please ask yourself if you can live the rest of your life with a man you hardly see!! He clearly does not share the same feelings that you have or he would make more of an effort!! As hard as I know it will be find yourself a man that will give you what you need and deserve!!! He will not change!!!

I’ve been in a long distance relationship with this guy. He has a great head of his shoulders and is very driven. He isn’t emotional and doesn’t compliment me much. I know I can be needy, but is it wrong to want your boyfriend to tell you he misses you? he never says it to me. We try to see each other once in 6 weeks. I’ve struggled with this for many months now – I’ve even talked to him, he doesn’t get it. He does have a very crazy work schedule. I’m beginning to feel like there’s no space for both work and me in his life. I don’t feel special to him at all. I miss him alot, but sometimes I just want to end it all. I changed my hairstyle yesterday and all I got was “cool”. Today, I told him I missed him and wished him a great day at work..all I got was “Thanks babe”. I haven’t had a boyfriend in 5 years and he hasn’t had a girlfriend in 2years. Is the adjustment process supposed to be this hard? Why can’t I just feel special to him? At my wit’s end

So the guy I am seeing, tells me he loves me, we had a pregnancy scare and he said he would be with me , and he hasn’t “been” with anyone since we started. However he told me that he is hanging out with this other girl and he is really starting to like her. He says he likes us both, he says both of the relationships are moving along nicely…. and i said well one day your going to have to choose one of us.. and he said I know..

What should I do what should I do!!!

Hi.
I have a problem that has been causing issues for me in this relationship.
Me and my guy have been together just over a year, and it’s always bugged me he keeps everything locked. His computer, his phone.. etc.. Never answered phone calls when I am around and so forth. So the seed was planted, but I confronted him a few times with this, and he was always on the defensive calling me paranoid and so forth. I’ve never been in a relationship like this before, all previous ones, we were open about everything, no troubles making calls, in front of the other, we’d have full access o each others thing, where then, jealousy never became an issue until now. I have always had the idea that, if there is nothing to hide, why hide it. Anyways, I confronted him, and after a while he ave in reluctantly to atleast not have his laptop passworded.. But it feels very restrained.. I dont feel I’d be able to just pick up his laptop when its conveniently there and use it.
But he knows now I am a bit suspicious and what bugs me. Now the other day we were sitting on the couch together, he had his laptop there, and opened facebook. There was a private message in his inbox, and he just ignored it because I was there. So the suspicious feelings all came back.. I sat there waiting for at least 10 minutes to see if he would open it. and he didnt. I then decided to test him, and walk into the kitchen. come back and see if its been read.. and voila, ´there it was.. read opened, and page closed down even. See now this makes me feel he is hiding things, i would never read, what there was, just glance and see who it was from maybe..I always open and chat with anyone and everyone openly.. as I trulu have nothing to hide… Now he tells me I am ruining the relationship, and I should just trust him period.. And his defensive attitude just makes my suspicions worse. There were times he asked me the same questions, where I would then just show him everything to ease his mind. imo thats something you do, to keep your mate happy and make him feel secure.. building trust. But when its the other way around, Im just a paranoid stupid nut. Please give me some advice on how to handle this properly.
Thanks
Claudia

I do nice things for him like get him a sou veneer if I go somewhere or bake/cook for him. I would like for him to return the favor sometimes. He knows what I like. I don’t need a guy to always take me out on a date, but it would be nice if he picked up my favorite coffee one day or got me some flowers without asking him to. How do I get him to do this without telling him directly because to me it seems like its not worth it if I have to tell him…. PLEASE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE

Hello there ,
I just dont understand why we do better when we are single then we are in relationships.
i have been with my boyfriend for ninemonths .. during this nine months off and on he contacts his ex of three years.. we are both getting married and i am having his baby.. but this issue of him not letting his ex go is really bugging me .. just todya he said that we have only been togethr for one year whereas they 3 .. i thought they were together 2 years so .. it meant they are still continuing.. oh my goodness help i need some help here.. although he say they are not together. ( he is in camp training now .. but i just saw they contacted through some blog thing) and i ask him is he intending to get a divorce after we marry or not — though he says no ?? every call with him ends up him sayin I will call you back in five , ten or fifteen or at a given time and no call till i call him .
of all my relationships this ones the worse.. so somehow as i met those guys around his age.. this guy is younger than me .. i kind of could see the difference.
I kind of not want to ask him anymore and want to let go .. and do my own thing because he is like keep finding comfort else where .. and thing i will be going to blow up by keep sayin :; can you please say what u want to say
something like this. and even though i do .. there doesnt seem to be much answer..
just yes yes and i know i know.. Its killig me cause of this intense pressure and stress. all i see is from the blog he says that cause i want love and that things turn out this way.
and that you can choose a bad friend but you have to be careful what wife you choose..
i just feel if he doesnt want it .. could he just definitely say so ,, instead everytime i want to leave he calls me.. and funny like a soft sheep i go to him.
kills the shit out of me.

I think you should leave him to be honest.. especially if he keeps refuring to his ex. Do you really want to be one of those women who get married to a guy that doesnt care for you back? Because thats what it sounds like to me. Do what makes you happy most and really think about it, does he make you happy? Or does he make you down, unsure and annoyed? You deserve to be happy do what you think is right and be true to your self and thats really all you can do. (: hope it all works out.

I’ve been seein this guy that I realy like for a month or so. Everything was goin really well. He came to my house every night, with no pressure from me I might add. He’d ring once twice a day to chat to me and constantly say nice things to me. I didnt call myself his girlfriend as I thought it was to early.He was so good to me and then
Suddenly did a complete 180 on me saying that he still wanted to see how things went but wasn’t sure he wanted a girlfriend! Now I feel quite hurt by the fact he doesn’t want to be my boyfriend! Please note I’m a very laid back person and didn’t instigate any of the loving behaviour. Very confused : / any advice would be welcomed!

I was with a man, for 12 years. He was young when we met. We broke up a few times, then it became final, only because he is now dating a much younger girl then him, from another country. She is very very young, and does not have a whole lot of life experience. She is 19, he is 31. The week we broke up, we made love, we cried, and he said he loved me. It was a very emotional time for both of us. It was like both our worlds were ending. The next week, he is texting this girl from the states, and falls deep in love, and they are telling each other they love each other. After a week!!! They didn’t even meet yet.
Anyhow, we get together for coffee etc. I talk, and I tell him how much I love him and want my life with him, as I always have. He gets emotional! He doesn’t delete or block me from any of his accounts, facebook or emails. He still needs the connection to me. We still talk on the phone, I still tell him I love him. Anyhow what I am asking is, being a grown woman, is this really just a phase because he was young when we met? Is he looking for his young hood so to speak? I have let him go, so he can experience this, knowing it is probably just a phase. However the way he looks at me, all the time, I know he still loves me. I tell him all the time, I know he still does.

Think of him as emotional vampire. He is healing himself and getting over you by being near you. He saps away your happiness. And while you love him if you two broke up and you want him back I would say to not contact him for about 3 weeks. This doesn’t mean avoid him like the plague and not respond to anything he sends your way. It means don’t make plans. Don’t chat of facebook or text. If he says hey say hey back but then tell him you are busy.

After three weeks contact him and your chances of getting back together are much better.

Hi, So I’ve been hanging out with this guy for almost 6 months now, we’ve slept togeather on an off, obviously care for one another, we moved in togeather and now are roommates and decided to “just be friends” and have a “No more sex ect rule” and he broke that rule a month ago (I say he because he initiated it) and so we picked up where we left off. Now I’m not really ready for a relationship but I’m willing to try for this guy because we’ve become such good friends. I asked him about his feelings on the situation and he said “I don’t really know what I want right now” I can respect that but how long am I suppose to wait on something like that without getting my feelings hurt. I mean the term “Girlfriend” isn’t important untill he flat out lies to anyone he knows about any strings what so ever that attach to me other then “my roommate” but will act similar to a boyfriend infront of even his own family without realizing it. Then it kind of bothers me because I know he cares so why hide me and lie when it’s obvious to the naked eye?

i try to call him but he was not picking my calls so after than i contacted my brother and told him about it,my brother so much love me that he had to see him on my behalf,he told my brother that it is over between us..

then i contacted a friend of mine that had this similar experience and she directed me to one of the spiritual diviner (redrocktemple@yahoo.com).at first i thought it was not going to be possible and i contacted him i was ask to come up with a little requirement,so i did what i was ask to do, after 3 days i was in my office when my ex guy called me and was asking me to forgive him and come back to him.

i was very surprise it was like a dream to me,so ever since we have been happily married with one kid my lovely

Here’s the thing about gift giving it should always be given when the person wants to not becuase of a Holiday. If he has not given you anything over the course of a year then he’s not a boyfriend at all. He’s just some guy you have become way to close to and his feeling aren’t as deep as your’s. I would move on and find a guy that cares for you. Men that are in love buy a Valentine card or a stuffed bear whatever the occassion.

I really need advice :/
2 months ago i got really frustrated with how my then boyfriend treated me when we went to visit his family in another country, he was leaving me all the time, rude to me, and said i was frustrating when i didnt talk much when in actual fact, none of them spoke english!! before this we were extremley close and happy, we said we wanted to be with eachother for the rest of our lives so it completely threw me when he acted like this! although a bit before going away he was annoying me a lil when he became so tight with money when he got a good job and i didnt have a good one. Men!! so i said i wanted a break which lasted like a week as we ran into eachother in a club, i saw him come in and put his arm around another girl as he said he didnt think id want to get back with him so he was trying to move on. i later got with some one and the he had the nerve to have a go at me for it! 2 weeks later we got back together after talking and things, and he was really happy about it! but then he kept saying he was happy, then he wasnt then he was and to be honest his work hours didnt help! he wanted to break up before new years as he said he felt he was making us both unhappy which he was so we broke up. the next night (new years eve) i got a text from him saying happy new year with lots of kisses so i sent one back but with a few x’s, his reply was 2 and a half lines of kisses! what am i supposed to think?! we havent spoken since as i didnt reply, so any feedback would be appreciated!! thankyou!

What? Really, its urgent to know if you have hot eyes? What does that even mean? I would imagine you’re eyes are just dandy, honestly unless your face is horribly disfigured, I’m sure you don’t have bad eyes. But truely what you wrote really doesn’t describe your problem well. For instance, do you mean before you ever started dating he was obviously trying to say you have bad eyes? Or is this after you started using slang to get rid of him (which I really don’t see how that’s gonna make him run, even if he is a stickler for grammar)? And is your problem simply and purely a concern as to whether or not you eyes “look hot”? If it is, I really don’t know why you’re asking this site. What does your eyes being hot or not have to do with your relationship you don’t have now? If you want someone to ‘rate your eyes’ go to facebook, or twitter, or any blog site and post a picture of your eyes, I’m sure if they’re ‘hot’ or ‘really bad’ someone will tell you.

I dated this guy for about three month. Everything was going pretty well between us until one of my friends told me he was cheating on me and sleeping with other girls. I didn’t know what to make of this. I’ve thought about it over and over and I couldn’t understand why. When I asked him about it he was angry at me for thinking he would do that. He called and texted me everyday and whenever he was on break at work he’d call me. Everyday after work he’d try to come see me. This friend was a pretty close friend and she heard the news from her brother who hung out with him. We broke up because of this and he told me he’s tired of trying to defend himself for something he didn’t do. He stopped talking to my friends brother because of this. He said he could like to confront my friend who accused him for cheating and sleeping with other girls. I don’t know, I still care about him but I think its best that we stay broken apart for now, since I’ll be studying abroad for about six month.

It doesn’t help when my family hates him and wants to kill him because of what he supposedly did.

What should I do? I don’t know if he’s telling me the truth or not. I told him to wait and see what happens in six month and he told me he’d wait. Should I just ignore what my friend said he did. Part of me believes him but I also believe my friend. I’m fairly new to this relationship thing because he was my first boyfriend. :(

Im having really mixed feelings about my bf. We have been dating for 6-7 months and we are extremely different than each other. Sometimes i love him, and sometimes I dont. I dont want to feel that way for the rest of my life. He is extremely sensitive and cries all the time. I need to break up with him but i really cant bring myself to do it. Hes 22 and hes way too immature. How do i break it to him? Ive told him many times about little things he does that needs to stop, and he says hell change but never does, and he never listens to me. I dont talk much so usually when I say something, its important. What should I do?

Hi!

Hi Ashley, I totally understand you… I was in the same situation over a year ago. Sometimes I loved him, sometimes I really didn’t care about him. He was the most sensitive guy I had ever met, cried, had panic attacks, and relied on me too much. I felt like I had to be a mother in front of him because I am a very independent person. There were numerous things that I had told about the things he does that needs to stop, and he always said he would change but he never did. We dated for 9 months and I ended the relationship over summer break on Skype. Not the best way to do it I know, but as we spent time apart during summer I realized what a burden he was becoming and how he was mentally dragging me down along with himself. You should break up with him. You will find someone better, I promise. Because I did and I am very happy right now! I told my ex, “I tried to explain so many times, but in the end you never understood and were never willing to understand. You said you would change, but you never tried to. You could never understand how what meant so little to you could mean the world to me. I don’t think it’ll ever be possible for us to understand each other enough, so I think it would be best for both of us to part ways.” Good luck with everything and hope this helped!

Usually people behave like your bf behaving with you when they want to quit a relationship.May be he wants to quit this relationship,because he’s bored of being with one girl for more than 2 years.

i have known this guy for 3 years, he first wanted FWB and i didn’t want so we talked for sometime and he asked me to go out with him. it was my final year in uni and i was very busy so i rarely had time to talk to him and after we had dated for about a week he sent me a text telling me he couldn’t believe i was that busy that just texting him would be hard and said that i was feeling all important and suggested we break up. so after that we kept in touch cos i told him i didn’t want to be enemies over that such stupidity. So its been like 2 two years and we kept talking on and off and he would ask me whether i’m dating and he was clearly interested in my life. he kept asking me to go over to his house and telling me that i should sleepover and i told him i wouldn’t do that because we weren’t dating. Then this one time he asked me to go over to his house for dinner and i agreed since i had refused so many times, then things happened and it got too late to go home and i had to sleepover at his house and needless to say we had sex for the first time. he said it was the best he had ever had and he hadn’t ever been with a girl that was as in charge as i was in bed and kept talking about how great it was, so after a couple of days we met up again and had sex and after that he would want to cuddle and talk for long after. then this time he had a bad flu and i went over to his house to see him and after i went back home he started texting me (he had been texting me daily since we had sex) then told me that we should try work out our relationship again. I was skeptical about it, but agreed and that was about 3 months ago, so we’ve been having great sex, then like a month ago he told me he had a 6 year old daughter, and i was mad cos he had never mentioned it, so we had this really big argument but we sorted things out and have been okay since then, so every saturday i go over to his house and make him dinner since its the only time we have to exclusively hang out then last friday he didn’t seem very keen on talking to me but we still spoke. then on saturday he requested me to go to his house early to spend more time together. then in the evening he told me he had decided to go out and i was shocked because i wondered why he didn’t want me to be there and when i asked what time he was going he told me that he didn’t know and it really hurt my feeling so i just replied and said okay. from then on he didn’t talk to me and it was really stressing me but i was mad he didn’t want to be with him i didn’t bother to talk to him. so monday i sent him a text and told him that i would drop his key off at his place of work, and we talked for a bit and kinda ended things and he told me that i was behaving like he would die without me. then i went to take his key yesterday and he was talking to me nicely as usual and we spoke a bit and he said that he hadn’t planned on going out he just wanted to and just wanted to see if i cared and would try to stop him, so i told him i thought he told me that cos he didn’t want me in his house and was trying to avoid me and he said he would’t do that so he kept quiet since i wasn’t trying to talk to him.

Eric,
I do not know you, but you are my best friend! U know why? U taught me through your writings what nobody else has managed to: that is: to have a healthy happy relationship with myself first. You articles made me feel more confident and happy with my life and realize that I do not have to depend on others in order to be happy, and since then my relationships with all people in my life have improved. I am still single and I am yet to find a guy I want to be in a relationship with, but I have a much healthier attitude about my past and future relationships :) Thank you so much, and keep up the great work and help you offer to so many people!

Okay, so me and my ex broke up about a month ago. We were really close and we hung out everyday and now that I think about it that was a bad idea. We got bored of each other and when we hung out we didn’t know what to do. I was too dependent on the relationship for my happiness and I didn’t have any me time. We went on a break for a couple of days and I honestly thought that would never have happened and I was shocked. After a couple Of days we got back together and it was kind of awkward and we were fighting. One day I asked him to hang out with me and he just seemed so bored and like he didn’t want to hang out. I kept asking him what was wrong but he kept saying nothing. Then without thinking I said maybe we should just break up because we aren’t happy anymore. He didn’t say anything for a while but he said how about this we break up and if we still feel Fsomething for each other in a couple of months we will tell each other and we can still be friends. At first I said yes and I was crying because of the break up and we were both sad about it but we kept talking to each other for a couple of days. Then I told him I didn’t want to be friends because it was too hard And I wanted to be more than friends and he didn’t understand why I didn’t want to be friends and he ended up getting mad at me. A couple of weeks later I told him I was okay with being friends and he said he would think about it. Later he texted me saying that he gave me a chance and I didn’t take and and he thinks we shouldn’t be friends. I was so mad and sad and I didn’t know what to do. I kept texting him Everyday begging him to be my friend and just asking him what I did wrong and he eventually told me he never wanted to befriends and he was just being nice although we both agreed to be friends and he wouldn’t tell me why he didn’t want to be friends with me because I would. Ty and told me to leave him alone. I was devestated and I couldn’t believe what he was saying to me. I have still kept trying to be friends but he just ignores me and I asked him what I ever did to him and why is he acting like I was the worst gf ever and he said that he isn’t gonna Answer my texts anymore. I am still texting him sometimes trying to be nice to him even though he’s been a jerk to me but I know that our breakup shouldn’t have ended like this and I messed up. Right now we are avoiding each other and being mean to each other but sometimes it seems like he still cares about me. Idk what to do should I tell him that what we are doing is stupid and that we should be friends? We have had a lot of problems with our relationship and he probably doesn’t want to have to deal with them which is why he’s ignoring me as well but what should I do? Should I just let him go and get over him or should I try to get through to him? I really loved this boy and I know he loved me we would always talk about our future together and I just don’t want to lose him. Thanks

I think you should leave him alone and move on!
The reason I say this is because beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.
If he can’t see through what seems to me honestly is little insecurities that
happen in every realationship then he doesn’t deserve you.
Im in my second month with my amazing boyfriend. We’re 5yrs apart.
I’m 18 and he’s 22 some of the things that I do he’s been through already so he thinks it’s childish. We’re actually at that stage right now that after the enitial first month of pure puppy love where everything each other did was cute now it’s tiring and boring. We talked about it and we decided to try new things. Find ways to spice it up. This is a lesson for a future realationship. STOP texting the poor boy. Don’t drive him away but make him miss you. Play the game if you want him back. I’m not saying it’ll work but it’s not to late to try. He’s so used to purposely annoying your texts. Just stopping will make him wonder what’s up with you. Then let some time past. Maybe send a text saying Happy New Years and leave it at that. Don’t even reply if he does. Take his shoes and put them on. He’ll wonder why you aren’t texting him back and miss you. If it doesn’t work don’t freak out and start texting him. By this time it should be easier to detach from the realationship after playing the game a bit and prepare you for the next realationship.

Go get your man girl. If its this one or the next one in line! GOOD LUCK!!!

Hey my ex has a new girl and his life they was chilling n I knew nothing about it.. n out of the blue he wanted to talk and text more with me.. Then she did some to make herself noticeable cause I knew nothing about her! So once I seen them hugging and kissing but now he doesnt do those things with her.. Why will he come back in my life if he was chilling with her! He tells me everything they do and they only hang out late night but he is trying to keep me in his life and he say she is cool but he cant see his self with her and he has none else to do! What should I do?

GiGI,
If this man doesn’t see himself having a future with her, then WHY is he with her? It sounds to me like he doesn’t know what he wants and is just trying to get the best of both worlds. If he treats her like that then you can see how he will probably treat you. Would you want him to talk about you like that? Would you want him to say that to another girl if you were with him? And if he is only using someone because he has nothing else to do…. HE REALLY NEEDS TO FIND ANOTHER ACTIVITY! (He is basically using her.) You only know that he doesn’t kiss her or hug her IN YOUR PRESENCE. You don’t know what goes on when you are not there. Sounds like the guy needs to do some soul searching and decide what he really wants. Be his FRIEND… but I wouldn’t go for anything more than that. Hope that helps. Good luck.

I’m starting to really care for the guy but it seems like we argue for any little thing or no let me rephrase that we seem to argue when he doesn’t get his way with me. If i say no he throws a fit and it’s either his way or he blows up. I’m really sick of it but yet when he goes to his buddies house he wants me to be fine with it “which I am cuz the space that I or that we give eachother is good” i think but he doesn’t.

My boyfriend and I have been living together for 5 yrs…we have 2 lil girls. He says he loves me, but can’t say why?! Then when we argue I hear he hates me, can’t stand me, claims the reason he won’t spent time with me is because of how I am…he doesn’t like people like me. His thing is, he feels that I need to come at him right…with “RESPECT” he hates that I talk with my hands, he hates that I speak up for myself. Anything I’ve shared with him when it involves a disagreement with another peron…he always looks at me like I’m to blame..I’m the f***d up bitch who don’t know how to communicate. I over heard him one time on the phone with his mom, telling her he was just staying with me for his daughter….his mom has

brought problems in our relationship. I’ve told him no mixed signals….u don’t like me, that’s fine…let’s figure out like adults how we can end this and not keeping going thru this.. he won’t spend time with me…but yet I’m not allowed time for myself.

I am 17 and I am in long distance with a guy of 21 years living in Italy. We knew each other when we were very small. He is my best friend’s cousin and we do have family relations as his mother belongs to my home town. He was interested in me when he was in relationship with some other girl 4 years back and I knew this. Early also we were in relationship for a month or two 3 years back with I left him because of some family problems. But we are again together from 3 months and 16 days. He lives Italy and I have came from Italy to study in some other country so i don’t want him waste money on calls so we chat for hours and hours.And at times I do call him but my call him I remain with no words. In our chat he likes talking about sex and asks me to meet nowadays I know doesn’t mean being practical as this is not possible in our religion. We both love each other alot.

Am in a very funny situation, i met this guy who i like , i did so because he looked responsible hard-working, and focused , things went so first because i knew he wouldn’t judge me because the first time i didn’t like him we where drunk and he tried to put his tongue in my mouth but i gave him space because i knew i will see him again when he comes to see my brother, after on and off communication we met at his friend house we hit it off and we had sex what made me love him more i was menstruating but he never cared i was dirty the first time, so after dropping me home he told me i will see u tomorrow of which i didn’t see him , i went for a trip for a week when i came i thought he would call me and find out how the trip was , so i had to call him, his response was i will call you back of which he didn’t , what i did i txt him saying ” i liked you for who you are but no matter where we met lying has never been corporate at all” his response was that i disrespected him that if am not comfortable with this it should end here he concluded with the txt saying he is going to delete my number and i should stop calling him, i never replied the txt i cut the contact for one month all i did was praying about us , now i want to renew the contact i have sent him a massage asking if he minds going for a cup of coffee with me sometime now two days no response
it you where you in this situation what would do to this kind of a person because i love him and i want to settle down am tired of dating

my boyfriend and i have been going out for a little over a year and a half. we are really in love and really serious. he’s my best friend and most of the time he’s amazing. we’re really serious and we have plans to stay together. he’s told me that he wants to be with me forever, marry, have kids, etc. we barely ever fight, however the two fights that we have had in our relationship have been explosive. both times he found out something that he THOUGHt i did and over reacted (in my opinion). when we got into these arguments, we fought for weeks. however it wasn’t back and forth fighting, he would send me sporadic texts or facebook messages that were extremely hurtful. he would call me a whore and a slut, he said he hated me and that i was a dirty little liar. he went on and on like this for weeks, and whenever i called him or texted he wouldn’t respond and then when i finally offically broke up with him, two hours later he told me he wanted to be with me. we go to school about a half an hour away from each other so this was all done he never apoligized for the things that he said but i think he just assumes i believe he didnt mean them. i’m really happy that we’re back together and everything is fine, however i have this horrible feeling that something bad is going to happen again. is this feeling or anxiety normal? is it a trust issue like am i just worried that hes going to have another out burst again?

I really feel better to have seen this website, I have a boyfriend who used to care a lot about me, we met 2yrs back, and ater a year he asked me to have a baby with him, promised to marry because i told him that the father of the baby i want should be the man who is going to marry me, we agreed on that. I was living about 780km away from him after the pregnancy because of the transfer i was given. Ever since he went to the place once, and never started to tell me that the place is far but he never did until i asked for a transfer. My man has changed a lot that even if i am around he enjoys the company of the other guy who we are sharing a house with. He never seat next to me, always besides the girl. I even asked him wheather they are in love, he said he has realised that the girl has a crash on him, then why can’t you stop playing with him, he said he cannot control the girl’s feeling he cannot stop them i should ignore, this is killing me coz even if i talk to him things become worse, this happen even in front of this lady’s husband, she is married.
I bed he distance himself from me, he never kiss nor hug, he never enjoy talking to me, never sms like he used to, never call me with those romatic names, this girls is always calling him and they will spend more than an hour talking in my presence, all these he did to the girl infront of me. what is wrong with this man, is he still in love with me, please tell me the truth about this gug.

okay so, ive been with my boyfriend for 9 months now. things were great. we hungout all the time, he called me and texted me on a regular basis. then a couple weekends ago we got in a huge fight it went on for hours and ended in us not talking for the rest of the night and sleeping in separate rooms, (i dont live with him, i was just at his house that night) the next morning, i went to where he was and told him i was leaving, he told me to come closer to him so i did and he cuddled with me and told me to take a couple days to cool off. so i did that. we didnt hangout for a week after that. and the following weekend we spent together, and we fought again. but managed to pull through. and things were fine. but now its come down to him not calling me or texting me ever.. it could go on for days, we will be online at the same time and he never says anything to me. this has been going on for a week now. its something i bring up to him all the time and we fight because he thinks he shouldnt have to deal with these conversations. but i tell him all the time things would be different if he showed effort again. he tells me he loves me and cares about me, but lately hes not showing it the way he used to. he tells me he needs space, but im afraid that space will push him away from me. i dont want this to result in a break-up. he means to much to me, please help me understand whats going on in his head, i try to just not talk to him and go about doing my own things, but i always give in and call him. but now after reading the other posts on this website im coming to realize that space could be all he needs to spring back. is it to late to fix things since this has been carried on for more then a week?

Eric,
I have been in a wonderful relationship for 2 years and he always said he wants to marry me. But recently I found that he was lying about his past and he was married twice before and had kids from these relationships.He always told me he was a bachelor in his entire life. I want to leave, but I am so much in love with this guy.So I decided to stay, but went ahead and asked him. To my surprise, he left me with out a word and hasn’t contacted me for the last 2 months, actually send one text sayinng he loves me and that I hurt him . I am so confused now. Why won’t he try to work it out or say something instead of walk away as if 2 years means nothing for him?
I want this man and is there any way I can make him talk to me?

Tell him that u love him, and that u were just curious about his past. I mean who isnt? if i want to know somethin bout my bf and he tells me the whole truth. It’s called TRUST and COMMUNICATION!!! Ask him y he lied, and y it was a secret. Then tell him it’s not the choices he made, but the person he is, that made u fall for him. U love him for him, not the name of him, or what he is or what he does, u love what makes him up. From his laugh to his smile. And all the sweet talk, and how he makes u feel better when ur down. ask him y he would leave u after 2 years of happiness, just cuz u found out somethin bout his past. Tell him u dont care about that, that u only care bout u and him, nothin else. This almost always works. ?;)

And, I do think that if you’ve clearly indicated what makes a man happy and neglects to nourish that, he’s giving you a message (and, I could be wrong). I’m going through a tough time myself. One month we’re great – he gets close – we get close. Then, all of a sudden, he pulls away and stops his chase. One day, I’m sitting on top of the world and I just want to run into the streets and scream, “I’M SO HAPPY – I’M IN LOVE”, but then it seems to crumble and I’m totally dumbfounded. I’m so pleased I found this site!

Eric-

Few quick questions on this topic.

The guy ive been dating for about 7 month used to be very sweet/cute thru texting/ calling. Ive noticed last few months he hasnt been like that as much. is that just normal when u get out of the honeymoon phase and more comfortable with each other?

I have been acting a bit more needy, clingy latelty…would that make him withdrawal a little bit too?

Reply October 4, 2011, 3:12 pm

Eric Charles

Yeah, lots of people get “comfortable” in a relationship… which sounds innocent on the surface, but translates to putting less into the relationship, which leads to getting less out of the relationship.
.
The whole honeymoon phase is a common description of a relationship, but when you think of it like I just described, doesn’t it kind of sound depressing? And yet… obvious too?
.
Here’s the thing about the neediness creeping in… oftentimes, two sexy people get into a relationship.
.
They have their independent, fulfilling lives: their friends, their hobbies, their activities, their adventures, etc.
.
And then, slowly but surely, they start giving up those pieces of their independent lives to spend more time in their relationship.
.
At first, it’s all delightful – the guy and the girl are putting their best into the relationship and they’re getting fulfillment from the relationship.
.
Then life starts throwing stresses and obstacles in the way. One or both people in the relationship start putting other things in front of the relationship. They start chasing their goals and putting out the daily “fires” that come up in life.
.
And then they’re exhausted and they turn to the relationship for support and all that.
.
Except now, since they haven’t been investing their best into the relationship, they start getting less back. The other person is in the same boat – dealing with life, putting other things in front of the relationship and not putting as much in, but expecting to get just as much out…
.
And both people start saying, “What happened to my relationship? Where’s all the juice that I used to get from it?”
.
Well… you get what you put in. And because you’ve now replaced all your old lifestyle activities with your relationship as your sole source of replenishment, you start to freak out. You NEED that energy that you used to get from your life… but you’ve created a dependency on your relationship to get it.
.
And that sole dependency on your relationship to fulfill you (neediness) causes stress on your partner. It pressures him. It ADDS to his problems and stresses instead of replenishing him.
.
So, he starts going elsewhere for replenishment – maybe to hang with friends, watch TV, hobbies… some refreshing distraction to try and “fill him up”.
.
Now you’re really freaking out, because it looks like he’s withdrawing, whereas the truth is he’s just trying to fulfill himself.
.
ALL this can be avoided if you make fulfilling yourself a priority and don’t NEED your relationship to be that source of fulfillment. Let your life fill you up, and then let the overflow of your fulfillment spill into your relationship (John Grey was actually the first person I heard put it like this, so credit to him on that metaphor.)
.
Hope that helps and thanks for your concise, to-the-point question. :)

I wanted to know if my boyfriend in cheating…or well in this case would you guys think it is considered cheating or that he will cheat? Well recently on facebook an old friend has contacted me and found out I was dating my current boyfriend and added him as a friend and now I think they may be talking to each other. I know both their passwords and they have private emails to each other stating about if she ever comes our city they want to meet up for “a date” and he confides in her. When I ask if they speak he tells me just a few times while playing facebook games but never mentions the emails. They talk about things could happen and that they are still young and stuff? She isn’t physically in the same state as us so he isn’t doing anything sexually just sharing these emails and some serious talk with each other, would you guys consider that cheating? Please let me know so I can either get these thoughts out of my head or get that asswipe out of my life Thanks :)

I had been dating my boyfriend for basically almost 3 years. Junior and senior year of high school and it was not the best relationship. He didn’t treat me like he should and everybody saw it but I was still in love with him and we were best friends and told each other everything and he helped me through some very hard times so I still loved & cared about him. We took a year break though our first year of college. We got back together this summer and things were supposed to get better but they didn’t. He left for school and became distant. He came to visit me 2 weekends after (it was my first weekend of college) and while he was out of my room I logged onto his facebook (i know thats bad)

I saw that he had been talking to this girl that he had a thing with last year… and he had told me they hooked up last year (which was fine because we weren’t dating)
But i saw stuff on his facebook that they were still talking and i could see that he hooked up with her (at least once)

SO i confronted him about it and he said he kissed her drunk once at a party.
BUT, didn’t tell her he was dating me. kept texting her and facebook messaging her and hanging out with her and didnt tell me any of this and actually lied to me about it.

I started to give him another chance cuz he told me so many amazing things and he changed completely and gave me so much love but then i decided i could not forgive him right now so now i am not talking to him.

but my problem is i miss him so so so much and i want to talk to him so so bad but i think we need to move on and see other people becuase what he did was bad.

do you think he is unforgiveable?
am i doing the right thing even though i am so so so sad and i miss talking to him so so so much?
i cant imagine never talking to him or seeing him again

but he messed up and does not deserve me. maybe im sad because he was my first and only love?

HELP ME PLEASE!

But 2 times I can account for and then he was messing around with a girl ona cruise ship that he worked on and found out he had 2 facebooks on the one facebook he had her on his frineds list she had their picture up and stated they were in a relationship. Fought to get control over that find out he still texting girls hes meeting on the ship telling me they are co workers finding out they were guest on the cruise ships. Every time I ask him he get pissed off cos I checking on him well I am the one that should be pissed off because byt his time we are married he used t have his status on facebook as married but now he makes it so his profile hides that info and Im seeing him having his picture taken with all these different girls. Based on previouls lies I really wonder if hes back to cheating on me, something he swore he would never do after we got married and oh yes we do have a baby together, he always calls and says kiss her for me but makes no such remarks to me. In fact I had a battle with him and his damn ass attitude tonite as well.

Your article is very helpful but I am curious about something else. I am in a long distance relationship and is it a sign that he doesn’t like to call or say anything affectionate unless I ask him?

Some guys don’t like saying affectionate things. It’s not that they don’t care, but saying it feels weird to them (it’s the same kind of thing that his guy friends might rag on him for).
.
Even for guys who do talk about their feelings, it can still sometimes be a challenge. A lot of guys will typically say, “How can she not understand that I care? Look at everything that I’m doing…”
.
And there lies the problem…
.
Guys are much more inclined to look at the evidence in front of them and draw conclusions. It can feel “manufactured” or “fake” to say something when we feel it’s already obvious.
.
Unfortunately, long distance relationships rely heavily on good communication to compensate from the other person not being present.
.
It might be how he is though… If that’s how he’s always been, then you shouldn’t look at it as a warning. However, if he’s typically been affectionate and tells you his feelings, but then stopped… then that change is typically a warning sign.

My man and I have been together for 8 months now and alot has changed since we’ve been together. We’ve both gotten thru alot and been thru life changing events together. One thing though, he always says one thing then does another. He can look me in the eyes and make a promise, then step right outside and do what he just said he wouldn’t. I really just want to believe him. I want to know he’l be there for me if I ever need him. I’m always there for him when he’s having a breakdown,panic attack,when “friends” rip him off. Thru I really do alot for him. We’re. 23 and he’s always so interested in smoking or drinking or “trying new things”. I am Christian and he claims he wants to grow in christ too but the way he lives is anything but “Good”. When I get upset that he says he’s done with something…then he does it…or says he’ll constantly do something then doesn’t. (After 8 months) of the same thing. ***should I let him make me feel bad for being upset that he keeps putting things off and basically lying? He’s said since the start, “changing takes time.” I say its not changing, its: don’t look me in the eyes and promise me something if you know you don’t mean it. Am I wrong for always wanting to believe in him? I can’t take the way he makes me feel anymore….for HIS lies. car accidents and just needing mental clearity(special?).

This article was fantastic and I want to say that I was in a relationship with someone who I loved very much and I know that he loved me a tonne too. When you said “In fact, I would even be so bold as to say that a man will almost inevitably leave a woman if he does not believe he can make her happy.” I can actually give my relationship with him as the perfect example of this. He was not calling and not being available and it was making me so upset that every time I did see him I would cry. This was our eventual demise. He was very open with me and we are still quite close but not in a romantic way. He did tell me that this was the reason that he felt we needed to break up. He just couldn’t make me happy and it hurt him to see me cry and feel like he just could never make it right. Lesson learned on my end. I find that I try to be open and honest about my feelings now but if it is something they can’t change then that is just it…they can’t change it so you live with it or you move on.

Wow I Think I Get It Now.! Its Another Issue That I Get Jealous Cuz My Boyfriend Goes To A Different School Than Me And A Lot Of His Friends Are Female And Idk What To Think A Lot Of The Time Because They Always Post On His Facebook Wall I Love You I Miss You And All That And He Replies Saying I Love You More Blah Blah And Thats What He Says To Me And Im Just Afraid You Know I Have No Idea What Goes On There.. Because I Only Get To See HIm On Weekends Cuz His Schools In A Whole Other Town. So He Only Comes Down To My Town On Weekends. Then This Weekend We’re Not Gonna Be Hanging Out With Our Friends And He Says It Boring With Just Him And Me (He Said No Offensee) So He Might Leave Early To Go Hang Out With His Friends. But I Dont KNow… Why Would He Want To Leave Early When We Wait All Week To See Eachother?

What you have said is so valuable, Eric. It’s the first time I’ve ever read such words from a guy. Your words denote men’s action greatly. Thank to you, now I understand my boyfriend better. I read him better now.
Love does not mean that you should expect him to pick up the phone all the time or text you constantly. Guys, lovable as we can be, usually like to use the phone to make a plan and that’s that. We don’t like chit-chat if it’s not towards a purpose – just not how we’re wired. I would say that if he says he’s going to text or call you, he should do that… But just because somebody should do something doesn’t mean they will, for whatever reason.

Great, insightful advice, Eric. I am experiencing something on the contrary though:

- this guy texts me constantly without having a point…and I get frustrated cuz I only use the phone to make plans and not chat aimlessly for hrs and hrs, not knowing what the purpose is

- it’s even hard to figure out his intention when he’s just around all the time, but says no confessions directly.

What am I to do with someone like this???

if this guy is like most guys… dont call or text. most guys dont like girls to be needy they need to know that your independent. espshally sence he told you NOT to text or call. i know its had to resist because you love him and miss him and want everything to be okay but he probably just needs some time to think and when he misses you, he will come back. and you want HIM to come back first. so meanwhile just keep yourself busy and dont answerer right away when he calls. i know its hard to understand because if we were in that place we would want them to call us first and tell us they miss us but for some reason they dont think like us. just be patiant. everything happens for a reason

so my bf and i have been together since Nov. with the understanding he would be going back to his wife and 4 children. (They have been separated for 5 years.) as soon as their no contact order was over. Since I have known him for a few years and i did not want set in stone relationship I was OK with the arrangement. He has been living with me ever since. 4 months into our relationship things were great live in friends with benefits he helped around the house, with my kids, etc. and then he tells me out of the blue that he loves me and that he wasn’t going back to his wife and that he wanted to stay and be with me. It caught me off guard of course. I asked him if he was sure that is what he wanted and it was OK if maybe he was not correctly or just was caught up in the moment and I asked him this on three separate occasions each time he insisted he meant what he said. So 3 months after that the no contact order was lifted. Great!! he can see his kids. I was absolutely supportive of him seeing his children. So every weekend he would go stay at their house. (the wife and kids lives with the wife’s mom and sister) this as continued until current. So my problem is I have caught him in multiple lies every weekend there is a new lie that comes up. for example: the wearing of his wedding ring (a constant lie) he doesn’t wear his ring when he is here however evidence has shown in pictures, hiding it in a cigarette pack since he left the key chain it is always on at the kids’ house, people seeing him put it in right before they drop him off etc. His response is I am crazy I am seeing things. Why is the first thing he does when he gets home from seeing his kids is take a shower? I guess I just don’t understand the reasoning behind him #1. telling me he wasn’t going back to his wife and kids. #2. Telling me he cant wait til she lets him take the kids on his own. #3. If he knew I was OK with him leaving to go back to her why continue to lie when he is caught. In closing, I wouldn’t be so upset or hurt had I kept my guard up and my heart protected. I believed him when he said he wanted to be with me and I allowed myself to fall in love with him. What do I do? Do I get it over with and tell him to go? or do I wait it out and see if he stays.

my boyfriend does the same exact thing and it annoys me so much! After a while i’ve come to 2 conclusions… 1. he literally means ok/sure he’s just preoccupied with something else or 2. he doesn’t really want to say ok/sure but he still does just to keep the peace. It’s REALLY hard to distinguish which one it is. Best way to do so is to see previous conversations and recognize if he’s actually busy doing something (video games or w/e).

Wow, I have been with the same man for over five years now and we got engaged two years ago on valentines day. In the beginning he was really attentive and romantic. There was poetry, flowers and a lot of romance. I had friends back then and I also worked. He started telling me I wasn’t paying enough attention to him so I gave up my friends and work to devote all my time to him. Something happened after we got engaged. The romance stopped, he never calls me or sends those romantic texts. He swears he loves me more than life but I don’t feel it. I am always honest about my feelings so I told him it hurts that he makes no effort anymore. He says hes sorry and he will change but he never does. I feel needy now and I hate the way I feel. Is he trying to leave but afraid to tell me? Help Please.

Men who don’t do what they say they will are not worth any woman or man’s time. You don’t say you’re gonna eat her out then bail because you wanted to watch a movie. You don’t say you’re working on a gift for her but after 9 months when she inquires politely tell her you have no idea if you ever will finish it.

When he is around his friends he talks to me so different like/d min just his friend. he calls everyday, but what bugs me the most is that I only see him once a week and he sees his friends everyday. And when I go over for my day with him he just wants to be with his friends. Like really, he baby just be with me. Then everytime we have a lil argument he breaks up with me. Also, he gets so jealous of my past. Always bringing it up and asking how many guys I have been with. Another thing when I make him mad he tells me the meanest things to hurt me on purpose, why?

My boyfriend and I have been dating about 3 years. We fight alot and are always around each other. One week my bf wants to be together, another week he wants to break up (usually at the time we are fighting.) Recently I found out my bf was talking to another girl behind my back. They text each other everyday during his lunch and they sometimes call each other at night. Once they talk for an hour (until 1 am). In the beginning I was fine with him talking to another person because he lied to me and said she was a he. I started realizing he will take his phone whereever he goes ( which he never did before). When I ask him about it he told me of was a girl from work, and she lives in another city now. He said they are just friends. I want him to have friends but do they really need to talk everyday? I even want him to let me meet them. (He rarely hangs out with his friends). He said they talk about school, work, and BS. When I ask him about her he got mad at me and accuse me of cheating on facebook. I showed him my facebook and everything and he said nothing. When I asked about her again he said he mess up and said he was single, when I asked really he said no he’s just trying to get me mad. (He’s been say things and doing things to get me mad since we starting dating, especially when we fight). should I trust him or is he cheating on me?

we usually get together on wkends, and i end up spending the nite with him. this wkend we were together,just cuddling and what not. he was hugging me more than usual, then all a sudden he said “what am i going to do with you?”…..he said it a couple of times, i was shocked, then i answered “what you want to do with me” after a few min, he said he liked me alot, and that i infatuate him,… he said that he knows he’ll disappoint me, saying that, hes only 27, not stable. but he dident pull back at all. he just kept saying, what am i going to do with u.he asked me not to fall in love with him, that he was worried he’d hurt me…disappoint me.
im thinking hes scared, nervous…he has never had a really good relationship..always been treated bad. his ex, was a head case…alcoholic.
i should say, i also work with him, and my father is his boss. he does not live in this town, but is here for work and leaves every 2nd wkend. I do have another job as well in emergency health . I am older than him…and have my shit together. I guess thats new for him

A good sign he really cares is if he is paying for you to go to Florida. Plane Trip, bus ride, etc. If not how can he even take care of a child.The second one truck delivery driver make good money so he sounds like a better catch but I think you should continue to date other guys. Dont have low self esteem. You deserve the best. Dont short change your baby. She deserves a good daddy not an absent landlord type.

Maddy, you already know the answer to that question. End the relationship because the problem here is not just him but that both of you are just not working together. And the fact that you’re questioning the relationship so much means that you’ve realized somewhere that this is something you cannot fix unless you give the relationship a nice long rest.

I have been dating my boss and before we started our romantic relation ship he was dating another woman who he bought a house. They started dating the day of his final orders for his divorce. He fell really hard for the other woman because it was his first love after his marriage. She turned out to be a crazy person and they broke up. I mean horrible woman! Then when we started dating and we were having trouble because the other woman was not out of his life. He told me that he loved me and I really loved him. We had been through so much together and we best friends. Then I find out that he is meeting the crazy woman in sectet and he tells me that he loves her! Needless to say I was very hurt although a part of me knew it was coming and so I told her about me. I told her that he had been cheating on me with her and she kicked him to the curb. Shortly after he came back to me and told me that he loved me and couldnt live without me so I took him back. I love him so much, but he keeps playing I don’t know what I want game. I know that going through a divorce messes you up. Should I make him stay away from me? He breaks my heart like every two weeks.

What does it mean when my boyfriend tells me that we will go bye engagment rings and get engaged but then when it comes to the day he doesnt even mention anything or sticks to his word? He even told all his familey that he is going to get engagment rings but he never does it.

@ashley seems like a bootycall to me.

I’m in a relationship with my first boyfriend ever and he told me that he loved me when it was totally unexpected and I was like “whoa! hold on there. Isn’t love like…intense?” but then we’ve been going out for a while now and sometimes I doubted that he meant it or rather that he understood what he was saying when he said it. Then for a while he didn’t call me or text or anything and I started thinking of the worst way to breakup with him (think twitter) but then he sent me this really sweet text apologizing and telling me that just because he doesn’t call or text doesn’t mean that he doesn’t love me or miss me. At first I thought “that’s just crap” but then I thought about it and realised that there were some days that I didnt want to call or text him either. And it was okay. It didn’t mean that I loved him any less.

DO GUYS MEAN WHAT THEY SAY WHEN THEY SAY IT?

I was told by this very sweet,very smart,very attractive looking guy, That he was moving back to originally where he came from. After me seeing him for about four years. We never had sex, But he was clearly attracted to me. We never went to bed or dated. Because we where working very close together and could not at the time. Also at the time I was in a rocky realtionship that I was trying to get out of .This sweet guy that, I was working with, was also in a relationship . I had told this sweet guy,” Just sex” was not what I wanted, I wanted more..he was very flirty with me many times, I felt like he was tryin to seduce me.One time I told him he was like my boyfriend and onece I told him I was too old for him and he said “what are you saying that for?” he would ask me trick questions, about dating him and such.it would confuse me.
Anyhow we stopped working together and I asked if we can keep intouch, like two years into the relationship he said yes. then about a week before leaving his job, he said ” no” that he would not keep touch with me. I was fine with that. Two days later I was reading the news paper at home I read my horoscope. and it read…. “If you like someone you should tell them, Bcause, I think they may know? but in actuallity they may not know?”. So I picked up my cell phone and called him at his office and I told him that I was very found of him and if he wanted too he can call me to see how I am.? then it was so quite and sensed he was happy for the moment. I kept the call short and casual, all of a sudden, I felt this wired sensation in my HEART! it felt like his love? we talked very little after that, then I hung up.I felt his love? could this happen? am I insane? can someone please let me know what you think? Thank you.

My boyfriend and I have been together for 7 years. It’s been an up and down relationship but we now have a child together so I feel like we HAVE to be together. I feel like I’m the only one trying in the relationship. He has been the one that has screwed up big time, not saying I’m perfect by far but for the most part he’s the blame of the bad in our relationship (he even admits that). And finally I’m basiclly fed up with everything, I feel like there is just no point. He’s cheated in the beginiing and just now 7 years later admits to it. He’s a compulsive liar for some reason. And everytime I catch him in a lie he says “SORRY” and then acts like everything is fine! PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!!

jessica, in all my dating years, because i am a bit jealous, i hooked up with many less good looking guys considering the same thing, and i could clearly see that they cheat as much as the other guys and girls, but the bad part is that it takes hard on you and your self confidence because you will start believing that if even he cheated on you it means no better guy will appreciate you, and that is wrong. what i am trying to say is that looks do not make a person different, try to find someone who makes you feel appreciated, who gives you his attention and care and someone you feel you trust no matter how they look.
Good luck

Anyway from this point on and it being the beginning of a new year 2010, I am no longer going to care and am going to try hard to let go of my ‘being let down’ hangup!!

What does it take to be reliable to a girl? Very little effort. If we women can arrange to meet for a coffee, whatever, a fortnight or even six months from now, and remember to turn up, give or take a natural disaster or being a little bit late, then a guy can be just as reliable. But we’re caught in a no-win situation: a guy could consistently let a girl down (blame the drink from the night before, hangover, forgot!) knowing this especially makes her unhappy, yet he wants to leave her cos he doesn’t want to make her unhappy!! Think about it guys, reliability takes no effort, just stick to your word and turn up or whatever. Even saying you’ll text her later and you don’t?! Sometimes it takes so little to make a woman happy, the most miniscule effort counts

This is some of the most insightful and helpful guy advice I’ve ever read, in fact, I can totally relate to it at right now and I will try some of these suggestions the next time I talk to my boyfriend.

Hmmm…

In fact, I would even be so bold as to say that a man will almost inevitably leave a woman if he does not believe he can make her happy.

-I’ve always looked at this as a cop out.
