Has anyone ever dated a massage therapist?
My long term boyfriend recently admitted to being uncomfortable with my line of work. He says he doesn't like the fact I massage male clients.
To me this means he doesn't trust me, and finds my job very sexual.
Since he said this, I really don't care much for him any more. I'm thinking about taking a break, and he hasn't even tried to work this out, he just tries to pretend it never happened.
Anyone have any advice? Every time I call him, he just talks about something else, even though he brought this up in the first place.
I feel like I could be overreacting, but I have never been attracted to him until now.
How would you feel if you were dating a massage therapist, and how would you work this out?
Thanks in advance, I'm really torn about this.

Please mods, don't 404 this, I work grave, so I only have time to make posts in the dead of night. I lurk/post here a lot and really care about the board, and this issue has been in my head for some time. Thanks
I will greentext to the best of my ability.
>Meet very socially awkward girl at community college
>sparks flying everywhere, we hit it off very quickly, share deep emotional bonds/similarities with everything, from our artwork, personal philosophy, love of animals, etc.
> big red flag is that she has bad social anxiety, but I am patient and help her realize that I do accept her.
>she leaves to college and our conversations stymie by intent, after some bumpiness (longing, mostly), so we can focus on school
>She comes back to town, as I later find out from her, but didn't contact me.
>Slows her responses to FB/text to once a week
Clearly, she isn't interested anymore, right?
>Express concerns about what her intentions are.
>She says that she feels anxiety whenever she talks to me, and so that's why she slowed down her responses.
I still really fucking dig this chick, but it's just so blatantly not being reciprocated....or is it?! The toughest thing is that she WILL type out long blocks of text explaining everything about her behavior, in perfectly frank terms, and it all makes sense.
It's just a very tough call between "Do I need to be more patient and understanding of someone with an anxiety disorder that I care about?"
"I'm being strung along."
People who have had depression/anxiety and partners that couldn't understand it, please give me your two cents. Does this sound like something within the realms of possibility? Her not messaging me often, when she clearly has the ability?
Sorry for the long post, but I don't feel it's too bloated...

> Life of crime
If you were to advise me on taking part in some sort of criminal activity what would it be? The only things I have in mind are:
> Risk factor
> Length of time in prison
For example, selling drugs may bring in a steady amount of money, even though it's low risk of being arrested, a lot of the time you're not making that much money. On the other hand - robbing a bank is going to set you up for life, either a life of luxury or imprisonment.
My stepfather was a very successful drug dealer in the 90s (Not like, Cuban druglord status, but very wealthy) so I have a lot of contacts. I also know some pretty shady fucks who can do a lot for the right price.
I'm educated, charming and can talk my way through a lot of situations, on the other hand I can't fight for shit and I guess I'm a bit of a moralfag, in the sense that I wouldn't mug and old lady-type-of-thing.
My main idea is a well-planned burglary, I just don't know anyone with experience with this sort of thing.

I liked this guy and he did something not very nice so I told him I would talk to him a couple more days once I am comfortable talking again. We started talking again and he sends me quick questions like what is up? Before I use to respond with long replies talk about my entire day and he respond back with something short but I decided I would put equal effort and let it happen naturally rather than pushing it. But today for some reason when I was talking to him about art he sent me this message, "this wasn't exactly what I meant with "talk to me when you feel like talking" So I don't really see why you did, when you make it so fucking hard to have a conversation.", I am really confused on why I got this message?? I mean I have been putting the same effort as him and are talking to him just not as long as I use to, I now focus on other things, I am running more, and drawing more. How do I reply to this? Why is he doing this?

Me and my girlfriend of two years broke up last monday, september 16th.
She said that the reason for ending it was that she didn't feel as if i loved her, and that I was too much of a flirt with other girls in our theater company that we work at (i will not disclose the name of the company)
I explained to her that it wasn't at all that way several times, but on this day in particular I had just about enough of her shit, so I told her to make a decision and she decided to leave. I now extremely regret not getting her to stay, because I love this girl with all my heart and I do not want to love anyone else but her.
We talked over the weekend, and I told her how I felt. She says that she's going through too much right now - that she can't have a boyfriend because of her depression and how she isn't good enough. I've explained to her that she is good enough. I just want her back. Today after one of our rehearsals (we're putting on phantom, it's going to be great) I went into the light booth where she works at and talked with her and hugged her on my way out. It was very tight, and she clutched at my back and snuggled to my chest. I brought up that she snuggled me and she denied it flirtatiously. She says she still cares about me, and I just want her back. Should I wait everything out for her to get better and see if she wants to date then? Or should I slowly work my way back into her life? I don't know what to do. I just want her back guys...

I've had this female friend since high school (about 3 years now). She was worried that I had feelings for her and somewhat often expressed this concern, me being a pussy denied this, and besides I really enjoyed being friends with her and was afraid she'd never want to hang out with me if she knew.
Well, about three weeks ago I told her. She didn't take it well seing as she had asked me 4 months ago if I had feelings for her, I said no, mostly due to her accusatory manner of asking.
I somehow feel like I fucked up despite finally growing enough balls to tell her. I tried explaining to her in text that the reason I didn't tell her before was that I was uncomfortable with these feelings. I have social anxiety, though much less now, and I know I wouldn't have been able to handle the rejection.
She hasn't spoken to me in three weeks, I sent her a message a few hours ago asking how she was doing. I assume she ignored it seeing as she has posted on facebook and shit.
I love her but, the way she is dealing with this is beyond shitty. I have tried to talk to her...but she simply isnt responding.
Is there anything I can do?
It really sucks that we have known each other for so long and shit ends just like that... we were really good friends before this. Though she didn't always treat me with respect I feel things were going good and that I now have fucked it up.
