Relationship Issues Secrets
I’m keeping a secret from my loved one.
Lying about cancer
My partner has lung cancer which he tried to hide from me but, I knew he had it. It runs in his family. He hasn’t told his mum and it has put me under pressure as I have told her my fears. It is making me feel isolated and I don’t want to talk to anyone as I don’t want to start telling lies. This has been going on over a month.
Think my husband is leaving me
My husband of 22 years appears to be leaving me.
Love someone I do not trust
I am in love with a woman that I don’t know if I can trust with my heart. I want to marry her but I am afraid that she will sleep around on me once I am committed to her. She and I have done things together that if anyone ever found out it would destroy her reputation. Now she is with another man and has no idea what I put myself through to keep her safe from harm. I’m afraid that I’ve lost her forever.
Know my boyfriend cheated on me with his ex
I know my boyfriend is lying to me about not having sex with his ex anymore for a year and a half which was when I started dating him. I know now that they have only stopped being a couple a few months ago. But I’m putting a blind eye to this and will move on with him and wait until what happens next in our relationship.
Know secrets about a friend’s sex life
I have a friend in DC that routinely dates women and then has random hook ups with other women. The most recent woman (Ms M) in his life believes this is a serious exclusive relationship, but he just had another woman (Ms R) spend the weekend with him. He met Ms. R and had sex with her after a brief meeting. He is also pursuing other women, some just for sex, some he hooks with talk of a long-term meaningful relationship. Worse yet, he uses NO protection. I feel sad for these women, I so wanted to tell Ms M, who thinks she’s the only one. He deceptively plans trips and rendezvous for the sole purpose of meeting women and having sex. If the guy doesn’t have an STD then he is the luckiest man on earth!
Still a virgin
I’m a 37 year old heterosexual man and still a virgin.
Dismissve attachment has led me to lie about my name
I’ve been with a wonderful man for a year, since what we initially agreed was a one-night stand... and still I have not told him my real name. Travel together has always been complicated, but last week he almost booked plane tickets under my assumed name. I’m afraid he’ll ask to see my ID papers/passport soon. I adore his family and they accept me without judgment. But the name thing is getting stickier than it’s worth. My attachment style is what psychology calls "dismissive," and I have no idea what to do about it.
Do not know why I am still loving him
I hate people who tell me mao ba.. the hell.. plastic. I hate myself for still loving the person who cheated, betrayed, used me in all aspects. I hate why I haven’t moved on yet. I really want to be truly happy. I don’t know my self anymore. I don’t know what will make me happy this time.
Cannot share my secret with anyone
I let something happen that is wrong and I can’t tell a soul about it. I wish I could tell someone.
Asking my girlfriend to tell me the truth (even if it hurts)
I’m a 25 year old female and my ex girlfriend and I were together for 4 years. I found out she had lied so many times. About the smallest things. I kept telling her and I kept begging her to stop. And it would only get worse. Until one day she went to far and started talking to another person, God knows how many other people. So I broke up with her. It’s been a year since she left the house and now we are talking again. I know she still lies and I catch her, I just don’t say any thing. A lot is said to protect herself and also to not disappoint me. So today when I go see her, I’ll ask her to disappoint me a few times a week. To hurt me a little. I know it sounds crazy, but if she can hurt me, that means that there is the truth replaced by a lie. And even if she has to hurt me a million times at least I can start to trust her... I hope this works. More then likely I’m not coming back on here. But good luck to all those who can’t take it any more, but don’t know how to give the love up. She may be a lair, but she has a good heart. I just hope there is no more cheating. I don’t know if I’ll be able to handle that again. Good Luck.
