  1. Trying to Get Over a Break-Up

    Nataly87, I'm really sorry about your breakup. I went through one months ago, and very soon after that happened, I found this site. It was hard to overcome and I'm still somewhat on the mend though it has gotten much easier over time now. I don't want to get into the details of it, but I made a very clean break and had to block him on all email / social media. You are right in that if you keep looking at his social media that will stall your recovery and just make it worse for you. The pain you're going through is still fresh, and it will take time to get past it. It will get easier over time. Just take it one day at a time. Yes, focus on yourself. Confide in someone you trust, talk to them about it, keep yourself busy with stuff you enjoy. Give yourself time to grieve, but also, give yourself time to be happy. Find out what you're grateful for in your life. Personally, what I've done in my post-breakup: confided in God, talked to friends, made new friends here, worked out, ate healthier, kept myself busy with hobbies, and also, I wrote a letter to my future husband. Writing that letter helped me move on and look forward, realizing that I'm one step closer to finding the right person for me. One day, he'll get to read it. I wish there was something I could do to make you feel better. Breakups are hard. Just know that you are closer to finding the right person (even though that really might feel like a faraway possibility). You definitely wouldn't be if you're still with the wrong person, and that is a lot to be thankful for even if it doesn't feel like it. Anyway, hope you have a speedy recovery.

  3. How many weddings have you been to?

    I've only been to one wedding when I was a young teen. It was for my dad's co-worker, who immigrated from China. She was getting citizenship along with another guy from overseas (Philippines, maybe, I don't remember), and my parents and I were the only guests/witnesses. It was a private wedding at a court. I came close to attending other weddings / being a part of them, but this one was just really special and seemed intimate. Plus I was the only single girl there to get the bouquet. The wedding did not last long at all, and even though I barely knew her, I felt honored to be there. To me, that wedding proved a point over the years - a bigger wedding doesn't necessarily mean it's better.

    Hi Emily, and welcome!

    Welcome Syzygy!
  7. Hi! I'm new...

    Welcome William! There's a lot to appreciate in your decision. I'm sorry about your recent break-up, I just broke up with someone as well, but it's all for the best. This is a very supportive community, and I think you'll find likeminded folks here.
  8. Hopeful, Optimistic & Waiting for Ms. Right

    Welcome, Vanguard79. I also do graphic design but not freelance (wish I did). I'm also new here and am relieved to find this community, its very encouraging to find others who are waiting. I know too well (others too!) the frustration of how society treats sex as anything but a sacred and exclusive gift for your one and only. So finding this forum is nice, when you see that you're not so alone.
  9. still waiting for the one

    Welcome San! Nice to meet you. I'm new here as well. I'm also 31 and still waiting for that person.
  10. Hello! So happy to find this community!

    Welcome, Davidino! I too am new here and am relieved to find a community such as this. It's good to know we're not alone in our WTM decision that's at complete odds with this society.
  11. I don't really want a wedding anymore, not sure if I ever did. I only dreamed of being in a beautiful white wedding dress, but I don't care much for the wedding. I think the money spent for the wedding could go to something better. I've only been to one wedding in my life and it was a court wedding. I thought there was something very intimate and special about it. I'd be very content with a simple, private wedding or at a court.
  12. Would you date a guy who's still living at home?

    I still live at home at 31. I graduated college a few years ago (got my design degree after having gotten an accounting degree) so I continued to stay at home to find a job (wow I gotta say that was a trying time for me) and then paid all my debt, and saved up. Living alone is expensive and I refuse to take on a roommate. Either I live alone and I can afford it or I stay at home. Or I get married and support my husband and I. I have a job and a decent salary (graphic design job) and contribute financially to my parents for the running of the household. I also continued some of my design education at home and saved up for software and camera equipment (for building my own business) and other medical expenses I needed to take care of. I hope to buy and build my own tiny house someday. This stuff is coming together much slower than I had wanted, but I'm getting there, and if I was living out on my own I would not have accomplished as much. I see nothing wrong with a guy living at home as long as he does something - to go to school or save up money, or support his parents, or job search when he's in a tough situation (I've been there), or to build up to independence (Im currently there). Definitely not okay if he is unmotivated, lazy, and mooching off his parents. I also understand the struggle of being unemployed and finding the motivation to fight that complacency that comes on. I also as a woman felt that I shouldn't be dating when I'm unemployed. But if the guy is in a similar situation like I am presently (have a job, building toward something like a business and/or independence, helping his parents out, saving up, etc) then that would not hold me back from dating him because it shows that we both could financially support each other should it come to that time we might marry.
