Dating birthday etiquette
“It is poor relationship etiquette to play games to get him to ‘fight’ for you,” says Lesli Doares, licensed marriage and family therapist at Balanced Family.
“Purposely making him jealous to get him to show much he cares will only bring you trouble.” So don’t flirt with another guy right in front of your significant other or not text your guy back for three days straight just to see how much he cares; trust that your guy values your relationship instead of testing him to see just how much he does. He should be willing to help you with anything you deem too gross, scary or difficult to deal with yourself.
I'm a firm believer in the idea that if you feel the need to look at your significant other's phone, you already know the answer.
Signs of infidelity are usually so painfully obvious: distance, lack of sex, excuses for running late or strange phone calls.
In your case, controlling and manipulative have become acceptable.
If I wasn't so angry and disappointed in her, I would be impressed by her snooping skills. I'm not cheating on her, but her last boyfriend did, so she has trust issues. I don't really know what to do to get us back on track.
We’re constantly inundated with rom-coms, books and advice columns telling us we “deserve” to find Prince Charming… Sure, we’ve met some great guys, but no one ever seems to be charming enough or make us laugh all the time or know exactly what we’re thinking every minute of every day. What we sometimes forget is that our dream guy doesn’t exist (outside of the lives of Disney princess movies, that is!
) and that—as much as we hate to admit it—we’re not exactly perfect ourselves.
She is constantly asking me about women I'm friends with on Facebook. It's strange to see such a clear, easy solution to a problem and then have that be the only option that is not available.
Of course you have to break up with this person; she is a nightmare.
