“Hi, I’m Sabatino. I’m a nobody and my hands are cold because I’m dead inside. I’m a terrible boyfriend because, well, I don’t actually know why, but I guess whatever I do is never good enough because no one wants to stick around, and now I’m awkwardly rambling, but I just wanted to tell you that I think you’re very beautiful. I Hope you have a great evening.”
Friends, I apologize for my absence. You see, I am heartbroken, depressed, and have lost my motivation. Allow me to use this post, not to boast about the spoils of love, but rather as a confessional to free myself of my own romantic demons.
Thank you so much for your response. It really meant alot to me that you took the time to help me with my relationship woes. You are so funny and very insightful! So, this guy that I wrote to you about (The forbidden love, he’s Muslim yada yada yada) We’ve really been talking lately…
I often feel that I understand love. Okay, maybe that’s a little arrogant of me, but I truly believe relationships can be broken down to a few basic fundamentals and when followed closely, can result in a proactive approach to solving all your relationship woes. Luckily for me, Bo over at 5 Minutes Of Your Life, You’ll Never Get Back seems to be on the same page. Here are his top 5 ways to a happy wife.
Dear Sabatino: So, for about 2 years now, I have been crazy about this guy who attends the same Theatre school that I do. He has made it clear that the feeling is very much mutual and we act very similar to a couple. We flirt and touch excessively, and we’ve gone out to eat, we even went to prom together…but his family is Muslim
Baggage. We all have it. Some of us don’t have as much and some of us are better at carrying it, but there’s no denying it’s there. I was talking to my friend the other day and she was complaining that every guy she’s met in the past few months is either divorced, a recovering addict or has children. And we’re not talking about 45-year-old men here; we’re talking about 20-somethings men.
Dear Sabatino: Here is my issue.. I’ve been in a relationship for almost three years. Lately I feel as if I am just not into the relationship anymore. I push away from kisses and don’t really want all the attention he gives me. Which most of the time is all sexual attention and not just regular loving attention. Let me start at the beginning…
So, after recently being accused of being TOO romantic (if you can imagine that), I began to wonder if my thoughts of love came more-so from my head or my heart- and if I would be better suited for a more defined and proper balance. As I often do when I’m trying to solve my own romantic quandries, I began rifling through reading material when I came across this article from Nafrini Selection. Looks like they’re putting a little science behind my sappy situations!
What do you do when someone you thought you were in love with decided he just wants to be friends? Bridging the gap between “friend” and “lover” is often tricky as it seems that while all lovers have the potential to be a best friend, not all friends have the ability to be lovers.
It’s no secret that I am a huge advocate for the idea that two people can be “soulmates”. While doing my reading late one night and contemplating my own love life, this article stuck out at me like a sore thumb- partially because I feel that I am so close to finally being with my true soulmate, and also because the movie Walk The Line reminds me of a pretty amazing girl. Is it a sign, or simply coinsidence? Tinylittlestars carves out the details in soulmate bliss, and validates us dreamers.
Dear Sabatino: When i was 18 i was engaged to a man who abused me, then i met a man while i was still together with my now ex. This other man and i were sleeping together both of us in a relationship. In august i became pregant with my second child, who is Mr. X’s baby.
I’ve been discussing this topic with a few female friends of mine recently and stumbled upon this post today by Pirate over at adventures under my pirate flag. It’s been upsetting lately, as I’m still in the dating game at age thirty, and finding that not only are men not “men” anymore, but women have forgotten how to be ladies. Pirate seems to have the 4-1-1 on this topic so I wanted her to explain it in her own words.
About a year and a half ago I dated a girl with a four year old son. It was my first foray in to fatherhood, a big eye opener, and a great learning experience. Turns out I’m not such a bad Dad, but I found this article over at Alone & Whatnot that I thought could help the men out there looking to dive head first in to a ready-made family.
Not every encounter produces fireworks, dilate your pupils, or make your palms sweat. You gotta look real close. Some just start out with a “she’s got a nice smile” and “he has a great handshake.”
Over time, this may develop into something more –
I scoured the internet, books, dictionaries, and even asked random people on the street about the most worrisome topic I may ever encounter in my life – love. Where do I find it? When will I find it? How will I know? Are you sure this is it? Are we there yet??
It’s been a topic long debated. Can men and women remain friends without advancing their relationship? I think in order to tackle this subject we have to look at a few different variables:
Trust is like your relationship credit score. In so many ways the amount of trust your partner has in you can either make or break your relationship. I like to think of it as my relationship credit score, while it takes time and commitment to maintain healthy levels; it only takes once or twice to bring the whole thing down.
Say what you will, but I love being the big spoon. There’s just something to be said about being so close and finding that you fit together like perfect pieces of a puzzle. Sometimes I crave it. After a long, stressful day when nothing has gone quite right, there’s nothing I want more than to lazily curl up on the couch or in bed with you, pour us a few glasses of wine, and flip through the latest episodes of Boardwalk Empire.
