19 and no experience dating an experienced 26 yr old dating srvices
There was a year or so I spent on anti-depressant medication with nothing to show but a host of bad side effects.
I’d also cycled through counsellors and doctors of all sorts, who couldn’t get to the bottom of anything.
I was open minded about it all, but I was never prepared for what would surface— deep and heavily repressed emotions.I would do things like avoiding people, screening phone calls or ignoring emails that were difficult or awkward to deal with.These actions only hurt me in the end, to the degree that I began to loose jobs, friendships, money and even respect because of it.I felt there had been potential for us as a couple, until he stopped contacting me out of the blue; leaving me confused and jumping to conclusions.I ASSUMED he was making a point by it; that it was all over, and he was quietly disappearing.
I’d feel great at the time, but I’d pay for it the next day with a rotten stomach AND a aching head still.
