I never thought I'd be writing you, but I've been reading your advice for quite some time and I think you might be the only person I trust to give this kind of advice. To sum up my situation, I have a best friend who I've had since my first semester of freshman year. This best friend of mine, P, has a girlfriend that he has been with for over two years. She doesn't go to our school and I've only met her once.
I've been dating this guy for 4 months (Yeah not long, and I have problems ALREADY!?) Anyway. I just recently found out he's been messaging his ex the whole time we've been together! But that's not the best part, SHE HAS A BF TOO!
Dear Tuffy Luv, I apologize in advance for this being long and probably confusing. Okay. My boyfriend and I have been together for a year and a couple months, and it's really great. We've always had a long distance relationship; a couple weeks after we started dating, he moved 5 hours away for an internship.
Dear Tuffy Luv, I've never wanted a relationship. I mean, I'm 19 years old, why should I? Now, dating, that's where it's at. But I keep finding myself in sticky situations. I'll be seeing a guy and he'll bring up the "exclusive" conversation when, wait a second, weren't we diggin' this whole casual thing two dates ago?
I'm suffering from heartbreak. My boyfriend is leaving me. Sort of. But only after I left him. Sort of...I'm suffering from heartbreak. My boyfriend is leaving me. Sort of. But only after I left him. Sort of...Here is my situation, I have the much coveted/dreaded position of broke but oh so sexy older musician's girlfriend. (He's 26, I'm 20). My man is a drummer, and a very talented one at that. Before I met him, he toured with a band for a few months around Europe. When I started dating him a year and a half ago, he was (and still is) in a local garage band with a couple friends, playing local shows recording a demo, and not really going anywhere besides that.
Dear Tuffy Luv, It's my freshman year of college and I started spending a lot of time with this boy on my floor. By a lot I mean we stay up until 3 a.m almost every night talking and he comes over to my room unannounced just to hangout, he texts me on weekends after I've gone out to hangout, and he flirts with me on the regular. Needless to say, I like him. The only issue is he has a girlfriend.
Relationships are great, there's always someone to give you attention, to go eat with, to be your date to parties, and so many more activities (wink wink, nudge nudge)! But somewhere along the relationship journey, it's easy to forget that you have friends that can do (most of) the same things your significant other can.
Common wisdom should tell you that movies and clubs are great places to take a first date. don't take your first date to any of the following places. But sometimes where you are and what you're doing plays a key role in whether things go well or not. However if you want to start a potential relationship off on the right foot, don't take your date to any of the following places.
Dear Tuffy Luv, My boyfriend has recently gone on a study abroad trip for the rest of the summer. He's only been gone a week, and already I've noticed how drastically our relationship has changed. For the first half of the summer, he always called many times a day and we visited each other every few weeks because we live in different states. But now that he's overseas, between the time difference and his busy schedule, there is no time for me!
Okay, so Cosmo recently paired up with AskMen.com and conducted the survey to end all surveys. That’s right, they asked the questions you’ve always wanted answered, but were too embarrassed/afraid/clueless to ask.
So you meet this guy. Yay! He seems really cool, you guys can talk, joy of joys! Visions pop up in your head of you two enjoying a picnic in the park, holding hands walking to class, maybe even him standing outside your window after a fight holding up a boombox (it doesn't matter where he got a boombox, the point is that he has it) that's playing "In Your Eyes."
Dear Tuffy Luv, Before I got into grad school I met this girl during my senior year of college. She was a freshmen and had a boyfriend. I had got out of bad thing about 8 month earlier, so I was in no rush. Well the more I avoided this girl the more I ran into her; it was almost like fate. Eventually we become good friends.
One of the hardest parts of being a friend to someone is actually being a friend to someone. It’s not like when we were little we were taught how to be a friend outside the realms of “sharing is caring.” There are certain sticky situations, like dealing with a friend in a bad or abusive relationship, where no how-to guide can instruct us how to be a true friend.
