emotions Question & Answer


It's hard to explain this when the idea of someone else completing? you is so romanticized.(Thanks a lot, Jerry Maguire. )When I was younger I did think I needed a life partner/husband to be satisfied. Such was the life of a young woman growing up in the 80's and 90's. A man or boyfriend defined you. Without one, Who do you think you are?Now that I'm older and have gone through a divorce, I do feel complete without a life partner. BUT, that said, I AM thoroughly enjoying the partner I have. We complement each other. I do not feel like I am missing anything in myself. This person is a partner but not my other half.Does that make sense?...

Thank you for the A2ANo, I don't have trouble gaining feelings for the people I've dated.I'm not sure I understand what's happening behind this question - do you have a hard time gaining feelings for people you've dated? In my mind, liking someone has to do with respecting them. If you don't respect them then how can you really like them?Here's another question for you: do you like yourself? I mean, really like yourself?That can be tough to answer for some folks...

If this is not your jam, then find a new boyfriend. I hope you're not asking this question so you can strategize ways to change him. Ugh. That's gross. He's fine the way he is.There's really nothing wrong with either of you. You are simply the product of all of your life experiences. Not everyone is going to be for you. Not everyone is going to be for him.Some people will be OK with an emotionally cold partner. It may feel familiar to them based on the relationships around them as they grew up. Nothing wrong with that.You may be a person who needs a more expressive or emotionally available partner. That's okay too. You're lucky to discover this now so you can make sure to have that as a quality to find a future partner. If it's important to you, do not compromise or settle down with someone who is emotionally cold. It'll be the same result as what you feel now.I wrote a blog post related to this topic and it includes a self-study workbook to Create your own users manual to help you identify more of those qualities and characteristics you want to find in a partner. Check it out....

Honey, you're making yourself sick for something that likely won't be a life long situation. You're FIFTEEN. You have so many years ahead of you to find someone you really care about.Use the time now to get yourself ready for your life. School? Future career? Solid friendships? Forgiving yourself out?Also, get clear on the type of relationship you want to find; do some reading on healthy and unhealthy relationships so you can create the best relationship for yourself.If you look at the average age of first marriage, it's 27 for women and 29 for men. You have time. Try not to stress yourself out....

Thank you for the A2A.This is a great question. I suppose anything is possible. My guess is it's mutual (as I imagine the electricity flows between the two people like a circuit. Either none feels it, or both) but that sounds like a nice experiment to try out.Report back with your data?...

Honestly, I'm not sure it's fair to put these on the same scale- the actual orgasm itself can be relatively brief -but I would have to say right up there at the top of my list is Touch.?Affectionate, warm, loving, reciprocated, connected touch feels really very nice.It doesn't even need to be a sexual touch. Not even with a romantic or sexual partner. Just someone who can attend to your needs.That feels pretty d*mn good....

Thank you for the A2A.Why. Why would you tell your friend NOW that you developed feelings for her when she?s in a relationship? Did you only now figure it out? Is it because she is now ?taken? that you feel a need to try to steal her away? Would that make you feel a sense of validation? Like a challenge you won? What has occurred in the last 8 months ago to have you develop feelings compared to when she was single?I think it?s selfish to tell her now. Do you hope to break her up from what could be a very happy relationship for her? If you cared for her then I?d think you want the best for her, even if it meant it wasn?t with you. See how selfish wanting to break up her relationship is?Be friends! Accept that! That's actually quite a nice result. Don't cross a boundary or entice her to. - that's sleazy.I'd like to point out that we have no idea how she feels about you. She may not have feelings for you like you have for her. Telling her now while she's in a relationship might turn her off on you and your motivations and lack of class. That would be a backfire in my mind.Let's say you become good friends. Their relationship doesn't last. You spend time with her and your other friends together while she heals from the break up. Be there for her. Then and only then can you tell her that you have feelings for her (if you still do by then). But also, don't begin to have any expectations that she somehow Owes You and has to have feeing back for you because you've been her friend. That's entitled bullshit and it's gross....

Hmm. I'm not sure. I'd have to know more about where you are to gauge if you live surrounded by misogynistic dudes.It seems strange though. When I was pregnant and living in NYC, people (including men) would get up and offer their seat to me on the subway. Everyone seemed happy to see a pregnant lady.I hope what you're noticing isn't a trend in more hate and violence toward women....
