Can we get past broken trust?

I found out my boyfriend had an account with an dating website. I found out he had the account and was looking for a girl for a relationship. I thought I was going to die.

I cannot trust my girlfriend

I have been with my girlfriend for 1 year. I feel that she could cheat on me at any instant. Not just physical cheating, but emotional as well.

She constantly twists the truth and I don’t feel she is always being honest with me. Continue reading

My girlfriend lies and manipulates

My girlfriend lies and manipulates. She is good at manipulating me into making me feel sorry for her. Her excuse of lying is so that she will “fit in.” She makes me feel bad when there is no need. I would do anything for her. She means the world to me. She doesn’t ask much of me, and she always keeps in touch when we are not together. She makes me feel really good, but bad at times. I don’t want to give up on her. Continue reading

We are in a power struggle

The guy I am with and I are in the midst of a power struggle. It seems he is secretive, or tells only half the story, when it really is nothing that should be a big deal. I wonder if he unconsciously withholds love from me in order to keep the power balance somehow. He rarely compliments me, if at all, and if I say anything about it, he says I am “fishing.” Continue reading

I moved back to my home town where my family was to try and recollect myself. Continue reading

Recently my boyfriend and I have been arguing a lot. We are fighting because he lies to me. We never really have argued throughout the time we been together until now.

He gets voicemails from other women

I have recently gotten engaged after 4 years together with my boyfriend. I am happy, but I’ve found certain things that I think are inappropriate in a relationship.

Should I tell him I kissed someone else?

To tell or not to tell that is the question. Continue reading
