I am Not Able To Forget My Ex Boyfriend and Move On: What Should I Do?

I-am-Not-Able-To-Forget-My-Ex-Boyfriend-and-Move-On-What-Should-I-Do

I feel horrible writing this email but I wanted to get it off my chest. I broke up with my boyfriend of 7 years 6 months ago and it was incredibly painful and heart breaking for me. It was my fault because I was spending very little time with him (I was traveling abroad and life was very hectic for me) and in the process I neglected our relationship. It got to a point where I just couldn’t manage my lifestyle properly and I broke up with him…

I have been dating a man for 4 months and I really like him. However there is one thing that bothers me. When we talked about our past relationships, I asked him why he broke up with his ex. He said that his ex broke up with him because he cheated on her. He reassured me immediately that he would never do something like that to me. While I appreciate his honesty, the fact that he cheated on her really bothers me. He said that it was a stupid mistake and that he had too many drinks…

I-am-Ambitious-and-Financially-Successful-But-He-Is-Not-What-Should-I-Do

I am a 25 year old woman and I have been dating a man for 3 months. One thing that we haven’t discussed is finances. He works as a web designer and he said that he doesn’t earn that much though he didn’t mention the exact figure. I have a six figure salary and I pay close attention to my finances. For me, money and financial well being is a very important part of leading a quality life and it’s really unfortunate even in today’s day and age, money is treated with taboo even though it’s so important…

I fell in love with this amazing guy whom we do almost everything together, feeling lost when we are always around each other and almost everyone around knows we are dating and seriously in love.

While my confidence and success inspires and motivates men in my profession, the same traits seem to be driving men away in my personal relationships. I feel men are turned off by my confidence and are perhaps intimidated by my success…
