Confessional  

It's a difficult age - too young to leave alone and too big to be taken along to activities for young children.

If you are feeling isolated, though, you could try getting stuck into the PTA, Governors, Friends of... whatever of his school. You will meet other adults and instantly have issues in common - if only the next fundraising event.

Also value your son's company while you can. My son is now 14 and would not be seen dead with me, but a couple of years ago we used to have a great time playing tennis together. There is also cycling - hiring banana bikes and crazy tandems in Dulwich or Battersea - or if cost is an issue you could see if a local nature reserve wants volunteers to help out - a chance to get muddy together and build some great memories. Hopefully building an active friendship now (rather than just mother/child dependency) will lay a good foundation for the future and getting out and about together will also put you in the way of adult company.

Confessional What do I do now  

I was made redundant two years ago after twenty years
at my last job.I was a forktruck driver warehouseman.
At 57 Im finding It very difficult obtaining employment
Ive been on various scheems with the job centre but all to no avail Im starting to feel desperate.
Ive never been In this situation before and am being treated as If I have never done a days work In my life
If It wasnt for my wife and kids I dont think I could go on
Anyone have any Ideas.

Confessional What do I do now?  

Michael, don't give up. Hold on to the fact that you have many positives in your life - like your wife and your kids. I do not have any clever answer about how to find work but I wanted to reply to your posting to offer some support from one person to another, albeit anonamously. I hope you are not offended by suggesting trying voluntary work - to get your foot in the door somewhere and getting the all important recent work experience. Not only that but you may well find the sense of achivement from it which comes from working - which I think helps with self esteem. Good luck, I hope things work out for you.

Confessional Keep going  

Keep going man, try setting up working for yourself, kleeneze or some other brochure order type company - anything really that can help keep you busy - remember your own self worth and don't let the cynical job centre staff bring you down!!! Good luck

Confessional Documentary Film Research? Maybe, but not real Therapy  

Hi,

Iím a counsellor and also have documentary film making experience. Having read your ad, I just wanted to say that although it sounds like a very interesting project, Iím dubious about the outcome. The dynamics in the therapeutic relationship could be distorted by the presence of this third party, perhaps generating a set of fantasies and acting out that would not allow development of alliance between counsellor and patient to develop. Nevertheless, it can still be part of the work so best of luck to you!

Confessional in resp to confessional relationships...-Nicola  

Perhaps the more you think about it the bigger this perceived change in your life would appear....it would be better to just take it day as it comes, enjoy friendships - love always comes along when you least expect it and who knows what is around the corner? I myself was very low after a 6 month relationship ended in October last year because of an affair on his part, I found it very hard to deal with but decided to get back in the saddle and registered on moveearth - a month later after lots of interesting dates with guys from all cultures I met my current boyfriend before xmas and have been madly in love ever since - just go for it, register on moveearth, go on some fun dates - what you gotta lose? I think you'll be pleasantly suprised...

Confessional Relationships??  

I'm twenty.... years old ;-) and I just never have romantic relationships. I like to think I'm just a normal woman, quite attractive so I'm told, but the longer I go without a partner, the more enormous the change of lifestyle would have to be and the more it scares me, praps that's adding to the problem, but I've always had bad luck. I'm missing kisses, cuddles, affection, someone to share things with... as well as the obvious of course as I don't really do one-nighters. Please give me your opinions...

Confessional Relationships??  

Hi,
Kissing,cuddling etc. are fun when being imparted by someone you love, 1night stands are like going to the gym, nothing terrible, good exercise and actually might lead to something more, At 20 you have plenty of time but not so much experience, at 40 you have much less time so 1 night stands.

Just remember if you find hapiness with yourself the rest will come to you
unless you are a hermit.

Confessional Being romantic is mistaken often.  

If you are young (that you are) and attractive, people around you like to mistake and ignore your being romantic for asking for sx. In today's time, people are not sure of anything, hence they are in a hurry and want to make max of their time n opportunity

I feel you should not worry on this. Just be what you are. Treasure good moments that you are able to have. Suggest if you go in for a matured guy, they start missing the romantic part in life, and can reciprocrate your romantic approach and feeling probably. Feel free to contact... Take care.

Confessional Nicola  

I think that a lack of affection can lead to less and less. If you see yourself as a person who enjoys meeting people and stop being defensive then maybe a man will be able to get close to you. You have to want to make it happen.

Confessional WHAT DO I DO?  

I really like this boy I have been talking to and seeing for the past 2 months now. He dosen't want a relationship because he's just come out of a 2 year one and only broke up with his ex 2 months ago. Me and him get on well. We have constructive conversations and we really click, he seems to understand me and I understand him. I saw a side to him I didn't like but we've decided to kinda work at it. Newayz I really like him but i don't know if he's being genuwine with me or if he's just sweet talking me, making me believe all the things he's saying. I spoke to him last night and he told me his ex girlfriend called him and wants to meet up with him. He said he dosen't want to but how am I supposed to believe him. It's only been 2 months since they broke up and it was a 2 year relationship. I really don't want to start having strong felings for him in case 1 day he calls me up and tells me that he's back with his ex. I would be sooo devastated and upset. I'm trying to keep my distance a

Confessional Hes just not that into you  

Go and find someone who is ready to have a proper relationship with you, wants something serious with you, and genuinely makes you feel good about yourself and him.

If you value yourself, you know you deserve better. You're hot stuff and worth a guy who thinks so too! Don't waste your time on someone who doesnt seem to share that view of you.

If you are worrying about it, it isnt worth it.

Love isnt meant to hurt. Its meant to make you happy.

Confessional Dont panic!  

The first and most important thing to do is take a deep breath and realise that what will push him away is if you seem really anxious about his ex.Now it could be that in the end he will get back with her in which case even more reason for you to keep your distance emotionally. If you are feeling strongly for him realise that what will help him to feel the same way back is if you give him a little space. At some stage you will have to broach the subject of you him and his ex but let him talk and try not to look too affected by what he says.

Confessional i cant forget!Help!  

Ive met a guy a few months ago and we started seeing each other for a couple of weeks. I become kind of infatuated with this guy and i thought he liked me too ( at least thats what he led me believe). Out out the blue he finished with me saying that he's met somebody else. Thing is i can't forget him and keep on believing that he is going to realise that 'he s made a mistake' and want me back (? )i dont know why i keep thinking this,( probably because we we 'clicked' on so many levels) but i suspect that it is a common thing if you got dumped to believe that the other person will realise their mistake .The problem is its a kind of obsession now ,and i thought that the more time pass less strong i will feel about it but this does not seem to be the case. Help!

This may be quite obvious- people float around on different levels, nice people with lots of affection will sometimes unintentionally hurt someone because of their nature, depending on how you choose to see it will ultimately have an affect on how you feel - remember your nice enough to experience this kind of attraction so thereís no doubt you will find someone again- itís not a problem you feeling this way as long as you take care of yourself, life will start to fill you up and youíll have new dilemmas to deal with.

Confessional Put yourself together, woman  

It is obvious that this guy doesn't care at all about you. It is also obvious that you have very little self-respect.
Do you have a job? do you have studies? a career? Hobbies? friends?

It sounds brutal but just imagine this guy sitting on a toilet, unwashed and unshaved picking his nose... imagine this guy, doing the same trick to other women, imagine him as the looser he is... in the mean time take care of yourself, work hard, think on studying something that you find enjoyable, improve yourself, do sport for fun, read, enjoy the music and your friends and think how lucky you are because that scumbag is out of your life.

By the way, I am just a nosey Spanish woman who used to live in North Finchley while studying at Middlesex University and ended up in this www searching for something else. Well, never mind I couldn't resist the temptation and here is my opinion. Ahhhhh this English women... c'mon be stronger and laugh to the world.

Confessional Waiting for Him to Understand  

Famous mistake woman.

Get over him. Ask yourself:

Why is it so important to delude myself ? What is the underlying belief I need to assess.

Or,

Go to him. Speak directly and give him an adult ultimatum. Do not offer sex if you want an honest answer.

Good luck.

thanks for this, what you 've said makes a lot of sense , i m sure he didn't mean to hurt me and he broke up with me in a quite nice way ( if there is such a thing as nice break up) , the point is i can't stop thinking about him , especially when i meet new guys and no one really compares to him as far as both the personality and the physical attraction go ...

Bless your sweet heart- find out what you really want, is it to really move on or remember how nice he was and hold on to a Ďwhat ifí, Iím sure your aware if you keep comparing you canít allow yourself to move on. Thereís nothing you can do to stop thinking about him except Ďstop thinking about himí if he pops into your head- take control and say to yourself:- ok it was like that, but Iím hear now and heís not, bring yourself back to this present and realise, mind over mind.
Plan B is a bit risky- contact him, let him know how your feeling, write a letter- but itís best you break the spell yourself
(donít just read this and go back to leaning on a memory or aĎwhat if- TAKE CONTROL)

Confessional Is it just me???  

...Or is it quite difficult to make friends in London? I moved here about two years ago and I've really struggled to make new friends- in fact I'd say I've only made one new friend since I've been here. It's strange as I've lived in different cities before and am confident and sociable. Since I've been in London though, although I love the place, I've never felt so lonely and my confidence is fading. Part of me feels like I'm going mad and that things will never change, like I'm some kind of social leper. Does anyone out there feel like that????

Confessional I feel exactly the same!  

Believe me,you're not alone,there are many people in the same boat - just take a look at the 'New Friends' section of this website!I'm also confident and sociable, just a normal person with a normal job (female, late twenties) but find that people are so busy and tied up with their lives that it's a case of an occasional night in the pub or something, making it impossible to build a proper friendship!I always assume others are totally contented and have loads of friends, which often very much isn't the case in London!Do drop me an email if you like-it's reassuring to realise you're not the only one.  Mail-me

Yes, it's difficult but not impossible, last year I decided to do something about it and posted some ads in the 'New friends 30 up' and another free website and I've meet great people, it was fun (I recommend to meet in groups, is easier than one to one). You'll be amazed by the response, we are all in the same boat!

Confessional I am in the same boat  

Hi, I completely agree with you about making new friends here. I moved to England 3 years ago and although I am shy I have tried really hard to make friends...I still dont have any real friends. I am developing quite a complex about this. Its really bad when the only "Happy New Year" texts you recieve are from your family. I have posted an ad on My Friends twice now, but I feel so award about meeting up with complete strangers. My poor boyfriend bares the brunt of all of this. Even though he is a terrific friend, nothing beats a night out with the girls...!
Any suggestions???
