    That's not quite what I said but if it works for you then see where the conversation goes with your counsellor, if they're telling you to do things more than listening I would challenge them on that.

    You want to be his friend rather than his carer? Makes sense to me, seems like a lot to commit to. I like how you are cautious and curious at the same time. I wonder what it would be like...

    Hi Abi

    My first tip would be to tell your counsellor to stop telling you what to do and listen, it's clearly not helpful for you.

    In fact everyone is telling you what to do and you it sounds like you want to work out exactly what it is that you want to do, or not do.

    So how can we help? Maybe tell us what you like about him?

    What are you hoping for?...

  • I say keep things simple.

    Firstly, all relationships end ! Bleak I know but arguably true, just sometimes it is with death or in the majority of cases it is because one or more people choose to end their relationship. If we begin with the knowledge that this relationship is finite, not forever, then we have a different aspect on if we want to be in it right now or not. Are we enjoying...

  • Well it makes sense to me.

    It sounds like you know exactly what you want to say to your partner and you want to be ready early, which isn't a bad thing at all in my book.

    I hope it goes well for you guys.

  • All I was saying is that while reading your post I had a reaction inside me. It was my reaction to what was happening to you. I felt that being in a relationship like your last one would make me feel frustrated and confused for some reason. I don't know if that was any help or not but thought I would share it.

    I found counselling was a really good outlet for talking about the stuff that...

  • Hi one-in-a-million

    I really like what you are asking here, it's such a good question.

    We hear about waiting to be ready to have sex, but what about being ready to talk about sex. How do we not scare our partners or encourage them before we are anyway near ready to be sexually active?

    Your epilepsy is a really good 'in' with this conversation, it means you have...

  • Hi supergirl

    It sounds like you really went through it with your ex, some of the things you described him doing really made me feel confused and frustrated to the point of hopelessness.

    I also hear you say it sounds silly how you are still affected with your ex, you see to me that does not sound silly at all. You mention ptsd and also how hard it is being in your new relationship....

  • When we talk about sex what exactly do we mean? Some people would say it describes penis in vagina sex only, others would say it covers a broad range of behaviours. Some people have sex and they never go near a penis. If we can count hand to genitals, mouth to genitals as sex can we also count dry humping? What about kissing and touching over clothes?

    If we broaden our thinking as to...

  • Hey Sholay

    I was wondering, have you told anyone else about what your carer did to you? Who can you speak to in person if you are ever worried or upset?

    Hi Emma

    That sounds like a really unpleasant experience and unfortunately quite a familiar story. It is never ok to touch someone in that way and you made it clear that you were not happy with it. Some people tell a staff member or door person about it but this does not guarantee that they will do anything about it, some people call the police on 101 and report it but again it is not...

    replied to Do you guys know why she did this?
    Hi Kian98

    I guess i can't answer why she did what she did or said those things, but it sounds like she thinks you are funny. I also hear that you like her, so I wonder what is it about her that you like? How is she to talk to?

    Let us know.

    It sounds hard not talking to them too, sometimes we just want someone to be there for us. We are here as much as we can be for you.

    I'm guessing you had a tough day

    Hi Shola

    I hear that you're angry about being stopped or judged about wanting to date older people. I wonder why people are saying these things to you and what their concerns are.

    I'm interested to hear what it is about the idea of an older partner that makes it something you'd like?

  • Hi Shola

    It sounds like you really want to find someone to stop feeling lonely and that you want this person to be older.

    Knowing what you want is a good start, I hope you find what you're looking for. Feeling judged for sharing what you want isn't a nice feeling sometimes.

    Let us know how you get on....
