Here is the situation. I was with X for just under 3 years. Rewind two summers ago, he had his bank account hacked and I offered to support him for the month until the bank refunded the amount taken, at which point he would pay me back. Throughout the month, thinking he was going to pay me back, I paid for trips, concerts and the daily expenses with my savings and debt repayment funds (I’m a 20-something with student debt, while he is much older than me). Full Article

Here's the situation. I was physically and mentally abused by my father for 15 years. The physical abuse is hard to get past, yes, but the mental abuse has taken its toll in a big way.

Hi Sasha, I’m a gay, sexually frustrated teenager. Last summer, when I was a camp counselor, I had a confusing “situation”, with this guy, P. He can be funny, but he has trouble picking up on social cues and can also be pretty awkward. Anyway, while my camp is very touchy-feely and cuddly and most staff members have seen each other naked, people started to notice when P would always want to sit with me at the staff meetings every night, and would cuddle up with me, since I’m out of the closet. Full Article

We haven't set a date because during our time together we've had to find a way to work through his PTSD, which is pretty severe. Full Article
