harassment after break up
Posted: 10/3/2012 7:30:25 AM
I know you don't want to change your number..But depending on your carrier they will do it for free. This happened to me and I ended up changing mine. It was a relief and gave me peace of mind.
You don't need the hassle..Sorry this is happening to you. Good luck!

First love/ first kiss
Posted: 9/28/2012 7:54:59 AM
Yes, the very first boy I kissed was in 1st grade and his name was Charlie....He died a few years ago, my sister called me to tell me about his death. She also said, "Remember, he was the first boy you ever kissed?" I did remember that and I was surprised she did as well. it was a cute little memory for me

His love...I didn't realize that he really loved me..I have no regrets...I had it, I felt it...I screwed it up...I hope he finds the love of his life...I think I might of been it...But like I said...I messed it up. God bless him and keep him safe

scared of getting into a relationship :-(
Posted: 9/24/2012 12:44:09 PM
As the other posters, or some of them have said, go back and see what might of went wrong. And just take care of yourself. After a break up we all need to have a warm fuzzy friend to talk to, just to purge it.
Don't ever give up on love..Never, ever...It will come.
This is a good time to become a better person!

I just have a question
Posted: 9/20/2012 9:05:11 AM
I saw a post earlier about a girl who has been abused by her boyfriend, one of the men who responded said to wait 3 months and contact her at that time. He said it was part of the "formula". Is this true that men feel they can contact the woman that they were dumped by or who they dumped? Is this like the "wait 3 days to call after the first date?" I am just curious if men have a method to their madness. It all strikes me funny.

You are in a bad situation. You are trapped in what you think is love . You have his children and I think you think he is better than you being alone. This is dragging you down...Get some help for yourself. It is not fun being with a toxic person. I have been there....I ended up leaving...I had to . Please take care of yourself before you lose your self-esteem and please also look out for your kids....Good luck!

Fix yourself friend....And do it as fast as you can!!! She is smart..She is looking down the road. And there are plenty of men who clean out their ladys cars and do laundry...Which is a trust thing. You are NOT unique...Get your S**t together. You have a monkey on your back...No, you have an ape on your back...Get rid of it, or you will be alone.

When dating a man who has a child, will I EVER come first?
Posted: 9/8/2012 10:00:28 AM
You will NEVER come first...Never ever!!! My former boyfriend who had been with me for over a year has a 35 year old son and he pretty much called the shots. That son decided that I wasn't for his dad...Guess what? He told his father that. And then lied about a few things...I didn't have a leg to stand on. It ended .. Just like that...Save your heart and get out now.

How come I sometimes hear from guys with kids when I state that I don't want to date fathers
Posted: 8/27/2012 11:13:54 AM
Either they didn't read your profile or just don't ever want to give up hope. You have to remember you are on a dating site...Some men just want to date. Sometimes it's nice just to give the guy a chance.....Sometimes

Who hurts more?
Posted: 8/27/2012 10:36:39 AM
I know this may sound like an obvious question but I am wondering....Who really hurts more, the dumper or the dumpee? I have been both the dumper as well as the dumpee.
I had a little chat the other day with a friend and mentioned to that friend that I got dumped and I was fine with it because I was thinking of dumping him months ago..... He just beat me to it!!! Well, he was told about this; That I was thinking of dumping him earlier. I found out that his feelings hurt, felt used and all this.
So I just got to thinking about it. Can someone who dumped you feel bad about it? I really think this is an interesting question.

I could never understand people who commit suicide over heartbreak..........until now.
Posted: 8/25/2012 8:57:35 AM
Oh yes....A lot of us have been there...Or maybe some of us. And that's a very scary place to be. And thanks to many friends and family I survived the thought of it....Just the thought. I don't feel anyone is a chicken to cop out...I personally think it takes a lot of courage...One thing that has always stayed with me since I heard it was," I don't miss you...I miss who I thought you were". That to me says it all.
When I went through my break up I had a cast of thousands involved, it was awful for me. But again, thanks to family I saw things from a different perspective. Hang tough...It is hard and those who say it isn't is absolutely lying. I think both the dumper and the dumpee feel it... Pain knows no age or class....Such a shame we do these things to each other.

Women and their best friends talk about....?
Posted: 8/22/2012 4:46:54 PM
I had what I thought was a best friend, who I stupidly told everything to...She pushed me under the bus...My relationship was ruin and then she blocked me everywhere..She even moved away..Well, to a place somewhere in town..I no longer would ever trust a girlfriend.I am sure she was the exception to the rule but now I only discuss things with family.
I know what real pure evil is now.....Shame on me!

Teenage stepchildren and blending families

Hang on tight Sweetie...The roller coaster is going on the downhill drop very very soon.... I feel for ya...I say forget the "how to" book and get into therapy for parenting skills.
Also, I agree with the other posters about how you and your new husband should of taken the time to get everyone on the same page before the wedding.
I think there will always be conflict...Good luck!

What was the turning point?
Posted: 8/21/2012 4:51:03 AM
We were at a party and he shit himself....Literally!!! He was walking around with this shit stain on his shorts..I told him to go clean up and change..he looked at me and said, "No". I got in my car and left.
That was the end of that. Every time I think of that I still get so disgusted. It didn't matter that I loved him or sometimes now miss him even to this day. That was not only my turning point but my breaking point.

greenfield101, Yes, thank you for your post. Today is one of my good days..I just wish I could bottle it up and drink it when I need it.
I am doing better. I don't go to sleep with him being the last thing on my mind nor do I wake up with him being the first thing on my mind. And that to me is a wonderful liberation!!!
My road to recovery is just a right turn away!! Thank you all for your support! PF

How to deal with being dumped
Posted: 8/17/2012 8:32:42 AM
This happened to me recently, and a poster told me to take a look at myself while having these feelings of loss and lonliness. And for some strange reason it works, at least for me.
The dynamics of my relationship were a little more intense and we lasted over a year,so I was devastated to say the least. I still get an empty feeling in my stomach at times, but I have found family to be a super help and a good diversion.
You hang tough..believe me...You will get past this.
We all want to be loved...Not living in conflict. Good luck friend! PF

Ignore above post ( I think that poster above is very mean and cold)....I thought to myself what I would do and I would feel such a great sadness...That is one of the things I never hope to see.
You were very graceful and mature in the way you handles it. Don't worry...You won't be alone to long...That is, as long as you can get past your former girlfriend. You have a good heart..Good luck PF

My suggestion..Walk away. He is married..he is not yours. I wouldn't talk to him...Do not call, text, messenger...nothing. Please save your heart here.
He is a slimball to do what he did to you AND his wife.
Move on and chin up..Good luck, PF

Is there something wrong with both partners getting tested
Posted: 8/8/2012 1:26:42 PM
No, you are not bonkers. In this day and age you have to look out for you!!! I have a girlfriend who was in a relationship with a man who decided to tell her after 6 months of dating he has herpes. The genital kind....Great guy right?..Then after they had been together over a year he dumped her!!!! She figured she'd be with him the rest of her life as they had a pretty good thing going on.And he still dumped the poor little thing.
It is wise to do it if you feel you are heading into a sexual or more serious relationship. Do take care of yourself!!! PF

Where have the older men gone?
Posted: 8/7/2012 7:34:42 AM
Just remember...POF is not the only game in town..I wouldn't count on ALL the men you may be looking for on this site. And most of the men young and old I have encountered are not really looking for anything other then a booty call. And that is a real shame.
I may be cold hearted, but your "forever guy" will not be found here..However, if that should happen,please let me and the rest of the ladies know!!! PF

You absolutely need to go see a therapist. Your mental health is not good and you need to be able to learn how to cope with this mess in your life.
Why would you want to talk to him after all of this? Please do get the help you need. You will be surprized how much talking to a therapist will help you.
Good luck...PF

Let him go?
Posted: 8/1/2012 5:06:50 AM
A lot of us have been there. And it's a very sad place to be simply because maybe you love him and can't shake that. This happened to me a few weeks ago after a year long relationship and I have actually been doing well with the help of a good friend that has made me see things differently. I get a little bit better everyday and for my friend helping me ,I am very thankful.
Doesn't mean I have fallen out of love but it means I am healing. Get a good friend to cry to,be sad with, and someone you can trust. I go on the forums a lot and see the heartbroken posts from some OPs that after years later they still can't get over their loss. Very sad.
Keep you head up high and think about what you really want in a relationship. Set rules and bounderies.
Yes, his honesty was good and all that but an exclusive relationship is just that. Either he wanted you or not. Please do not return to him..Like the other poster said you are attractive and there is someone out there who wants JUST you and only you. Best of luck LauraP36.......PF

You know what when people WANT and NEED answers and don't have anyone really to share with they buy books to find the answer they are looking for. No crime in that and things can get to a desperate point where we NEED something to help us. That industry is booming...Ever wonder why?

I am in my 50's and had a young man in his late 20's pursue me. He was extremely good looking, but it just wasn't going to happen. He did all sorts of things to try to get my attention.
He even told his father,who is also a friend of mine that he thought I was "it". Well, needless to say it never came about. I think if the 2 consenting parties agree then have at it. But for me, no way. PF

What men do
Posted: 7/26/2012 8:47:57 AM
Do men really put up with crazy women but do so if the sex is great? I have a girlfriend that is wild to say the least and I really believe that her boyfriend puts up with it because they have great sex. They are committed to each other but I was just curious about it. Thanks
