JL - Yes, he told me. I've never had a reason to doubt him before, we've been together 6 years and nothing..
So yeah, I lost weight in the two relationships I was sad in, and gained in the one I was happy in. Go figure..
So, its definitly something they like and enjoy. They know, hey - no matter what, I wont have to worry about money. I can always order that extra drink, or that extra lobster. I feel like a vacation, - ok..
Women in the big cities and The Northeast are mostly money driven..
Thank you for taking the time to write a serious reply. I know it sounds ridiculous and i can completely understand why people would think i was trolling. I mean if i wasn't in the situation i am in and i saw this thread, i would be thinking the same thing. I have been reading a few threads on a similar note and to be honest none of them are as bad as mine. I feel so angry with her at times but mainly i feel piss*d off at myself for getting carried away with my emotions. I am normally not like that all. Especially not with a pro. But in all honesty, is there ANY chance at all that it would work in the end?.
Maybe you can take a break from 'friends' for now. Let him know that you need some time alone ('no contact' time) to get your head and heart back together since this "friends" thing is causing you more pain than necessary. If he is TRULY your friend, he will understand and respect your need for some alone time to get straight. If he pouts, whines, or tries any other emotional blackmail, then you'll know that his intent isn't to be your friend, so much as it is to use you as a security blanket. Then your 'no contact' will be more a way for you to clear him out of your system..
This might sound strange but taking Carl Jung's personality test and finding out your personality type might be beneficial to you. It explained me to myself and why I struggle with the issues I struggle with in life including relationships, and though it hasn't helped me find a partner it's at least allowed me to be a little more forgiving and understanding of myself as I fumble along....
