My boyfriend and I haven't been together long; it's only been eight months. I'm 21 and he's 27. We have a normal healthy relationship we get along great – but he doesn't want to get married or have kids. I don't want to get married yet; I'm 21 and still going to school. But I do know I want kids in the future. But he confirmed to me he will not have kids with me or anyone else. He doesn't like talking about the future, in general. I can't even plan something for next month. He likes living day by day, which makes me feel like I don't have any security about us. I just want to know if he sees a future with me like I see a future with him. He was engaged before and was with his ex for six years before they broke up. They were living together. We have talked about moving in, but he wants me to move in with him at his parents’ house first, to see is we can deal with each other before moving out on our own. But I can't help but feel like I'm being punished sometimes. He gave … [Read more...] about Is it too early to ask big questions?
I am a longtime reader and felt compelled to write in after reading a recent letter. It seems I have the opposite problem as that writer. I feel as though I am a very social person. I genuinely enjoy spending time with my large family and friends, whether that means going out to dinner or drinks, cooking a meal together, going to workout classes with each other, going to the movies, etc. My boyfriend of eight months is an only child with an extremely small family. He only has a couple of friends, and they've started families of their own. He rarely sees them, probably about once every two months, if that. I understand women tend to be more social beings than men, but this has me worried as I think about the future of our relationship. I not only think it is a little odd to have no friends to plan things with on the weekend, but I also can't get past his lack of desire to do so. He is an introvert and enjoys spending time at home by himself, which is the opposite of how I am. I will … [Read more...] about He doesn’t spend time with friends
Chat at 1 p.m. I'm a 39-year old male and currently single. I have never been on a date with a woman ever. I am now at a point in my life where I would like to venture out and get into the dating scene. I'm kind of a late-bloomer, so to speak. I come from a very loving and supportive family. You may be asking why I haven't been on any dates with any women ever. Well, I can tell you that I had a very tumultuous experience during my high school years. Albeit, while I was in high school, I did have the prescience to realize that "if I buckle down and concentrate on my schoolwork, I can get out of here and start a new life with new friends, and people who like me for who I am and not for the kinda car that I drive or the type of clothes or sneakers that I wear." So I graduated from high school and eventually ended up attending a maritime academy, which was a terrific experience for me. I was around people who shared my interests. Eventually I worked aboard an oil tanker, but am now … [Read more...] about ‘I have never been on a date with a woman ever’
News / UK and world by Press Association February 6, 2019, 8:26 pm Send us a story Sign up to our Daily newsletter Samsung’s latest innovation aims to inspire customers to date based on the contents of their fridge rather than a well-taken selfie. The electronics giant has developed a dating service called Refrigerdating, where users can present themselves using a photo of their chilled goods, giving extra meaning to the notion that you are what you eat. The website then promises to “hook you up with a variation of fridges, of different tastes, to pick and choose from”. The service offers users the chance to swipe right to connect with someone’s profile, or left if they don’t like what they see – two people need to match one another to connect. Refrigerdating is free to use, and even comes with a few handy tips to make the most of the innovative feature, encouraging users to match with different-looking fridges as well as to … [Read more...] about Samsung is helping people find love via the contents of their fridge
Meredith, I am 26 and have been dating a great guy for a year and a half, and we recently moved in together. There have been no issues with our relationship or living together, but the big step of moving in together has prompted a lot of people to start asking about engagement. While we both think it's too early, we've now had a lot of conversations about our future together. I've personally never even wanted to get married, let alone have kids. While the marriage part is something I've been reconsidering, I just don't know if kids are something I really see for my future. He, on the other hand, does really want kids, which begs the question: do we continue on or cut our losses now, before we get even farther along? I am extremely happy in the relationship and could see a long-term future together, but I fear I may never come around to wanting kids, or will have one and end up unhappy and resenting him. He's a few years older and definitely wants to settle down in the next year or two, … [Read more...] about ‘I fear I may never come around to wanting kids’
