How to Beat a Narcissist: Well, I have a semi interesting and new situation. Met someone in the Virgin Islands on a 3 month trip, we were inseparable. I came home to deal with some business and due to return in December. This am we spoke and he pretty much said he does not see things going long term. When I asked what changed, he said, you have a whole life in LA and it made me see this might not be possible.
I just said, I hear you. I said that I was not going to be comfortable continuing just a friendly sexual relationship but just friends was ok. I am going out there dec. He takes me out, he calls or texts or sexts, daily. He said if he cant have a relationship its not about me but that he just needs to focus on him for a while. I do not want that again. What do I do? I have met his family He always calls and checks in, I rarely if ever message him first.
We are very sexually compatible and flirty still over the phone. I know you answer people sometimes and I want to get it right. The problem is he tells me he needs time and one day we will be together then tells me hes got no emotions and doesnt care about anyone because he ex wife hurt him so im always getting mixed signals. Im heart broken but i feel that im wasting my time coz i never know how he feels l.
Any ideas ladies or gents??? When we first started hanging out we were together everyday. We both were tied down to other people at the time but clearly preferred being with each other. So, at first we quit talking for a couple of weeks, then months, but no matter what, I would move, change my number not to avoid him I just did it for other reasons but no matter what he always ALWAYS seems to find me somehow and weezle back into my peaceful life.
That and the ones I do I just am not interested in. I know for a fact he has his phone glued to him because he needs it for work. Could he actually have feelings for me still and is just standoffish because of our history, or is he just feeding me some lines to try and keep me on stand by when he gets the urge. How long do I wait? My guy works overseas for 6 weeks and comes back for 4.
A routine of 30 years. I have known him almost 3. I need advice on how to act with a new guy. Had I come across this article 5 years ago I can almost guarantee I would not be in a relationship with my boyfriend let alone be living with him… Met him at a very rough time in my life, failed relationship after the other — granted in hindsight I was very insecure, needy and desperate for validation that a man wanted me. We agreed to be friends with benefits, I ran after him like a desperate little school girl even drove an hour almost every weekend from my hometown just to see him, he was unemployed, broke and in massive debit due to his ex , he made me feel good, happy, wanted, desired and he made me laugh till it hurt.
And then about 2 years on, there was a bit of a medical scare, this totally changed the dynamic between us. And all the things in the article happened, and I mean every single one! I knew he was seeing and sleeping with another woman, it was pretty obvious when everyone we associated with when we went out would mistake me for her… Nice right? But he denied it to the end — naturally. The lies and truth all slowly came out about a year later.
So 3 years on and I start really evaluating everything and it hit me like a ton of bricks on New Years Eve — when once again he had disrespected, belittled and humiliated me in the club by practically throwing himself at a woman who was old enough to be his grandmother, what the hell am I doing here!?
And how pathetic am I to hang around hoping he would see how much I loved him. So I did what the younger more confident me use to due. Have him his personal things back — keys and that — to the last of the cash, went to the bar spent it all on tequila and danced my ass off.
He kept looking for me but I was just so disguised with him at that point that it would have lead to blood being shed. Well that was the straw that broke the camels back.
I went back to work and home the following day, totally devastated that I had let myself be used, made a fool of and disregarded for so long. That I had become so insecure that he could basically treat me like garbage and I kept running back. About 2 weeks later he sent me a text begging me to talk to him — simple straight forward answer I am not ready to talk to you but when I am you will see me in person.
In that time I really looked back on everything that had happened and who he was…. Finally saw him for the emotionally damaged, insecure, low self esteemed and needy person he actually was, not the loud outgoing jokester that he pretended to be in public.
We were like two ships stuck in a storm being pushed together by the waves that was our childhoods. And the realization that I did actually want to be in a relationship, get married, have children, be respected, loved, valued and desired by a man who wanted the same things was confirmed for me the night before I went to see him again. Two weeks of living on coffee, no food and zero sleep can help boost a girls confidence especially when you lose 20kgs.
Boy was it good to actually say it all with out shedding one single tear too. When I was done he started speaking but only broke down in tears, begging for forgiveness and a second change to prove to me that he wants and can be the man that I want. Which I hold him to till this day every time he treats me like before. Besides it reminds him that I choose to be with him because I want to not because I need to… A few months later he got a great job, threw himself into it, worked hard and excelled at it, his confidence levels rose, the felt like a man again and it showed.
He was happy with himself again and with life. My insecurities reared their ugly little heads and I lost my job, pushed him away and basically had a little of a melt down. Naturally communication came to stand still, intimacy is none existent and the resentment started building up again. The point of sharing this story is that we all have our own insecurities, baggage and fears that will pop up once in a while — we are human after all — the important thing is to really be honest with yourself about what they stem from or whom and acknowledge that you are not perfect and use your insecurities to find what it is you really want in life.
Sometimes we need to stop and take a step back to really see the other person for who they are or could be if there is a mutual desire to change for ourselves. Be forgiving of yourself and others, love and respect yourself first and foremost, never let anyone make you feel invisible, and to see both sides of a story. I have a man in my life who truly loves, accepts, understands, cares and respects me in everyway.
He provides for me, gives me shoulder to cry on when I need it, lets me have my PMS mood swings without taking it personal, he values and appreciates me. We have our arguments, sarcastic little jokes and silent treatment tiffs occasionally but we always apologize to each other and take responsibility for what we say.
We have grown together these past 2 years, in a way I think we saved each other from ourselves, he showed me how to be less emotional more rational and I have taught him to feel his emotions not think his way through them.
I still remember the exact moment I fell in love with him — when he let his guard down and let himself be vulnerable for the first time as he shared all the tragidies, pain and growing up feeling totally unloved and unwanted, it all made sense to me then why he was the way he was, and while we watched a beautiful sun rise creep up over the city skyscrapers of Johannesburg on a spring morning I knew then that no matter what the future holds for us, I will never be the same again and the love between us would change both of us in a profound way to the likes that neither one of us actually fully realized yet.
The guy I have been seeing for a long time gives mixed signals. He says he doesnt want a relationship but I have met ALL his friends and family. Mother brother aunts uncles father his kids his kids mom etc and I love them all like they are family. How backwards is that! We take trips together outings with his kids and mine like a family. Cook outs, get togethers but he still isnt ready. Part of me wants to move on and part dont. I feel like I have everything I want but the title.
But they would get the short end of the stick because we are always together. We go out on dates. I just dont get it. We also have a business together. Its like wtf do I do. DO I end it and move on because he wont give me a title or do I just enjoy what we have? I want the damn title.
Id like to get married again but knowing its just him and i committed secure is just as good right now. How can a guy give so much but not give anything? I disagree with this. I was like… we do? The guy I was seeing not only introduced me to his family, but would talk about me to friends so much, that when I finally met them, they knew all about me and eager to meet me. Despite really liking him and wanting to be with him, I had enough self-value to end things then and there. Should I be worried that he is not investing?
Am I a door mat? If you want someone to tell you they want to spend the rest of their life with you then end this relationship because that other guy is out there. But guess wat now the guy calls anytime even on weekends h calls me h even text I took the back seat n gave him the steering in this relationship I told him that its up to him to make it work bcoz I tried so many times to make us work n h is the one who failed.
He is with me and totally faithful. My partner who i live with doesnt have chit chat and tell me things like how his children are as they have rang him or text i have to constantly ask him if they are doing ok or have they been intouch. He never financialy gives me anything at end of a working week he makes me waight for days till i have nothing then i must ask for housekeeping money. He also doesnt involve me in conversation over taking any hols from work or if hes been intouch with anyone im constantly asking or guessing he always assumes about issues like well were you going and assumes ive made plans before finding out by asking me and at tea times he never asks children if they want tea and makes his own anyway leaving it up too me i need advice on what hes actually doing this for pls help with any advice thank you.
We reconnected on face book after knowing each other back in high school. I have 3 kids and one lives with me. My 8 year old son.
Idk what the heck is going on. He is leaving for the 2 time to visit his daughter in Los Angeles and I was not invited. Ive been seeing a guy for about 6 months and because of his work schedule we only see each other on Friday nights then he goes back to his place on Saturday morning because he works on Saturday nights graveyard shift Saturday through Wednesdays.
Is this a sign that this is not serious? He played me a song he knows songs mean a lot to me that told me exactly how he felt about me.
He said through the song that he wanted me by his side always so he would never have to feel alone again. He also told me via the song that even though people had tried to keep us apart his family , he wanted to make up for the lost time.
Sabrina, I have been dating a guy for three years. And when we are together its great. I asked what the status of our relationship was and he said he wants to continue dating me. I told him that by now I had expected to move onto the next phase of our relationship which was living together and that continuing to be with him I was not seeing or expecting this to happen especially when I want to get married and have a family.
This went on for 6 months. We kept in contact every once in awhile and eventually picked up where we left off. Should I date other guys and wait till he comes back and see what his decision is? Or just move on? Hi Sabrina, The guy I am dating matches 2 and 3 out of 5. Do you think it is still a sign that he will never commit? I have some confusions about my guy friend we are really good friends from last 1year and on the other side we are friends with benefits also..
He does everything for me anything that makes me happy infact he says that he wants me to be happy and lighthearted.. He says he wants to be with me forever.. And he loves me as a friend.. When I ask him does he love me more than a friend.. But the prob is when he gets too drunk he says he loves me he sees his future with me as a wife and he wants to be a best son-inlaw etc..
Says I have some problems my circumstances are not good neither fanacially nor personally I will not be able to fulfill your needs.. And sometimes he reacts so irritated.. And ya he has family problems and financial problems with himself. I got 4 out of the 5 signs. He took me to meet his family for the holidays he surprised me on that one 2. He takes me on amazing, well thought out dates. He is open to me about himself, family, friends. And he doesnt disappear for days or weeks.
He even jokes about he and I, as old people and all. Like a boyfriend does. He gets little small jealousy bouts, if he sees guys checking me out.
I have the classic situation, been with my boyfriend for over a year, however he took a sabbatical from work for a few months at the end of last year so we have just reconnected. I lived with a male friend that only wanted to be friends but we slept together and he never take me out anywhere and i wanted more.
Over the months i feel enlove with a man that has anger problems and nasty person that dont take care of hiself. Hes a felon ans getting ssi no job whatsoever and a failer of treating women so i left him be hind to get with my clingy enlove ex boyfriend who is a drug addict.
Not the best choices. He is always telling me how much he loves me, he opens up to me and he does put the effort in when we go out on dates. The problem is that he works nights, so I only see him once a week. He keeps putting off meeting my mother and I have yet to meet any of his family. Am I wasting my time here or is there some way of talking to him that will make him realise how important this issue is for me?
Right now I am close to giving up on him because this behavior implies that I am not a priority in his life. I have known this guy for about 10 months now and had been in love with him ever since i met him for the first time. I am a girl not into dating a lot of men, i had been on very few dates and had a bad experience into relationship wit a guy in the past.
However i felt relieved but could never move on. See him, but see other people too. Have a life outside of dating and by all means;Make yourself date other people!!!! Except for an aunt. When I got into a romantic and sexual relationship my family relationships became even more strained. In short, while all of these points are great points and make a lot of sense in general terms, number 5 especially can become a lot more complicated if one or both people in a relationship are trans with conservative families and there are any further strains and complications on the situation.
I think this article especially could be made much more inclusive to people with less privileged backgrounds. Nothing is ever as simple as this. I have the same advice for you as for Zanya and girl: Your problem here is your addiction to the jerk.
Do whatever you can to move on. Move On and start dating others immediately, no matter how bad it hurts. Your life and quality of life is at stake here.
Kick this guy to the curb. If he really does love you, he will come after you, if not, good riddance to bad rubbish. Do whatever you can to break that awful heroin type of relationship addiction! I know this guy at gym. He works at a fitness school. The first time we have met I was shy and more fat etc. He told me lessons about life and was very curious about me. Well for me it was love at first sight tho for him probably not coz I told him I like him.
But he didnt like me that way tho he liked my personality and me being spontanous. We talk like everyday on whatsapp eventhough not big texts. We see movies at my home he saw all my friends… well he did see my whole life and still is close.
He teases me a lot like a lottt and touches me a lot etc. But from his side I just saw one of his best friend.. I dont know him that much as he know me. Its frustrating for me especially I cant move on easily coz my mom likes him too and always ask to meet they asume im with them too and cHat with him too which i think is awkward.
And he always give me hope.. So what to do!? Hey girl, I have exactly the same advice for you as for Zanya etc. This guy is not into you and he is using you. I cried out for attention constantly never got a dinner or a movie never a hug out of the blue.
I cannot describe the way he made me feel. BUT since then he makes sure we spend everyday together. If we plan to go on a bike ride, but the weather is bad, he cooks me breakfast instead. He is constantly texting and calling me, taking me out to eat, going on trips with me. We talk about our futures, our dreams our hopes our fears.. In fact the last time we broke up, he started to see the world more like I see it, things that are important to me he has started to do, learning languages, anti- human trafficking, non-profits… He wants to start a business together and we always make travel plans together….
He has signed up to be in classes with me next semester… and he serves me all of the time- he spent 2. I love him- but do I need to let him go? That, today at the end of , McKenzie, is my story! He has clearly said he does not want responsibility of a relationship right now, and he doesnt want to feel the need to report to someone all the time.
Okay so I should just believe he is not ready to commit? What about if he does do these things above and has told me he is not ready?
One and four he has done as well. Then he has also done 3 and 2. He has gone MIA for almost a day and recently almost two days. So what am I supposed to believe? Lily, I am in the almost exact same boat. Maybe we can exchange stories. I wish I could figure out if I would be better off just moving on. But I am falling inlove with him after 6 months. I just can not believe that it is me.
I have asked him to his face… do you just not want to be with me? And he says that is not it. It is that he is not ready to commit. We spent holidays and vacations together. He took me to family weddings and celebrations. He was jealous any time I started seeing someone. He would send me flowers, buy me gifts, take me out on dates.
He would call me and keep me on the phone for hours, then make plans with me, act mushy, tell me how beautiful I am, AND then tell me he did not want a relationship right now. This cycle was endless and soul-crushing and maddening. I wrote him off a year ago, telling him everything I felt and that I did not want to keep in touch anymore, secretly believing he would come chasing after me.
So maybe that is what I would tell you to do. Lay your feelings out there for him, walk away, do NOT call or text or email. I hope it works out better for you than it did for me. Was it worth it? Or did you regret anything. If you had the chance to do better would you?
We are together for about 5 months now. Overall it looks good. Since Capricorns are a grounded, patient Earth sign, they need someone who can complement these qualities. The Taurus is the greatest match in love for a Capricorn. Both signs treasure their money and security, so financial issues will never be a problem for this pairing.
This will make for one of the most stable relationships in all of the zodiac. Capricorns will cherish the dedication that a Taurus will put into their life at home and the Taurus will admire Capricorn's effort to make sure they will always stay secure. All in all, this coupling makes for a happy, loving marriage. Enjoy your wedded bliss, Earth signs! Even if they have to put in very long hours to do so.
With their intense concentration and ability to solve problems super quickly, Capricorns will be successful in financial or management positions. However, they greatly value their loved ones and will make sure to set time on their calendars for them. And if it seems like a Capricorn's work is never done, they often find some way to make it up to their favorite people in the end.

I confronted him and he said that he was not ready for a relationship. My insecurities reared their ugly little heads and I lost my job, pushed him away and basically had a little of a melt down.
Erica I disagree with this.
