    Sounds soppy but it's pretty much the best thing that can happen to you. I do believe you can be perfectly happy being single but to meet someone who is on the same wavelength as you and who loves you through the good and bad, is pretty special. I'm one of those people that believe there is someone out there for everyone

    Even strong relationships aren't always sunshine and rainbows though. After 7 year and a half yrs, my boyfriend drives me absolutely crazy at times and he knows exactly how to wind me up and we do have our arguments and disagreements but 99% we get on like a house on fire and can bounce back from disagreements quickly. I'd be more worried if we didn't have our annoying moments here and there.

    After a while of being together, you become more grateful for the little things and not the dates, butterflies in your stomach, impressing each other etc like you do at the start. You enjoy staying in watching movies together, can look an utter mess around each other and you just laugh it off, can have fun in an empty room pretty much. Today was a good example of appreciating the smaller things - a wasp flew into the flat and I am terrified of them and my bf got rid of it no bother whereas if it were just me living in the flat and wasp flew in, I'd have ran out the flat and never came back :laugh: I also love the sense of security and completeness you feel when you have been with someone for years and you know each other inside out

    1: Well its hard not to tbh!

    2: Oh no i didnt mean on TSR, i meant where i live! Its impossible where i live

    If i could, i would, but i cant, so i shallnt!
    Well its happened before and that usually means itll happen again!
    Nah, if i had £1 for evertime ive been called ugly to my face, id be a friggin millionaire!

    I know, it doesnt help when people say that.
    Why?
    I'm sure if you tried harder, you'd find someone that is willing to speak to you

    But let's put it this way, why would you want a girl that says mean things to you? I mean why would you take these things to heart?

    Girls have said some hurtful things to me before but they ain't worth the bother

    You're more attractive than you think, you just don't believe it yet When you realise, the confidence juice will be flowing over you and all the girls will fall for you

    You should believe in yourslef, tell yourself you're beautiful when you look in the mirror. Well if you want to be in a relationship you have to play your cards right. Just be yourself and let that person come to you
    The people who call you ugly are terrible people and you should not listen to them.
    I called UWS gorgeous cause he has gorgeous personality

    Relationships are a constant battle for power under the surface, if the guy has it he gets lots of sex, if the girl has it she gets lots of free attention and money spent on her which she eventually gets sick of and dumps the guy cos shes not feeeling it anymore. To make it last the guy has to keep winning and its a lot of effort after a year. Have three at once instead or none at all its much easier to handle.

    Well I was bullied during college and that's left me with no self confidence and I'm mentally scarred by the experience!
    How do I try harder!? I'm not sure that's possible! I can't try any harder than I have done already!

    I don't! They only say these things once they know I've truely fallen for them! Then they slam me into the floor!
    Because I believe it to be true!

    Well that's a good way to think!

    I'm really not! Trust me on that!
    No no it won't, my looks are crap and lead girls away from me!!! No girl is ever gonna fall for me!

    I can't though!
    I crack the damn mirror so yeah that's not gonna happen!
    How do I do that?
    But me being myself would mean I'm indoors most of the time doing nothing.
    Idk where to go to meet new people! There's no where around where I live!

    But that's everyone I know! Literally!

    Lol if you can't do it for yourself they're won't be people to do it for you
    You could try looking into new hobbies to go and find people
    Go to the gym, lots of nice people there tbh
    Take group lessons learning a new instrument
    Do you not go school or uni?
    You know it's not end of the world not being in relationship, there's loads of happy single people. Your life is dependent on someone else
    I would justy say be yourself, be open to meeting new people and let someone come to you

    This It really is the little things that you appreciate, like making each other a brew in the mornings or me killing the spiders for him.
    Aww well it seems like y'all have great relationships going!
    May one have a little advice please?
    Hehe I don't like spiders either Or insects in general!

    How did the wedding go (I think you had it already, I feel so bad for not fully remembering)

    Well I know that!
    Am doing, but as I said, there's nothing around here!
    Can't do the gym, medical reasons!
    No where to do it!
    Nope, I work full time! But will be starting a uni course in October for 1 day a week, but it's a Level 6 Apprenticeship course so won't be going to a proper uni so won't get to meet new people!
    Well I suppose not but it would defo make me a heck of a lot happier! And it would benefit my mental health too!
    I've been doing that forever and yeah, it's not got me very far
