She may even sleep with you, but it may not mean anything.

That sucks. When are you next going to see them in person?

No, she won't. She told me that when I lose my virginity it needs to be someone I am in love with.

I'm so anxious and sexually frustrated/embarrassed that it's literally first opportunity for me.

Yup. My (now married) friend still really enjoys it when she gets attention from guys. She wouldn't kiss now though, but heavy flirting is still okay with her. Not sure if the hubby knows, but yeah. She has no intention of leaving him anyway, she just likes the attention and power over guys.

Hah, it can take people weeks to get back to you re: invitations. I sent my wedding invites out two weeks ago and I'm JUST getting RSVPs back. Postal service within the state should take a day. Not even my officiant has responded. I hope he's still showing up!

Problem is, now I'm starting to wonder if it's her or not. I should really try looking for a social introvert next time, instead of someone as extroverted as her.

And yes, I'm part of a wedding-planning online community now and there are many, many brides who cut off contact with their families because they've been emotionally abusive and want to control everything, including destroying the relationship between the two altar-bound partners. You don't HAVE to have other people get up all into your bzns if you don't want them to. You do have a choice - get them out of your life. Right now she doesn't see that option, but it's there. She has to want it enough, and she doesn't. I don't know what else to tell you.
You really don't need to tell me anything regarding this. But yeah do tell me what I ought to do regarding the gifts. Please? Still confused here.

She could have cared for you before her parents got in the way, but if she won't go to bat for you in the face of her parents, whom she has a choice in not listening to, what about other things? What about when you two are looking for jobs, or other real-life things that are actually going to affect both of you directly? If she has no faith in you now, she won't have faith in you then.
I need to have more faith in myself before I expect someone like her to have faith in me at all. I dunno if I should be blaming myself for this entire thing (which would be productive) or her.

You're in a place and in a culture where being sexually active isn't necessarily a social taboo, do you want to be in a relationship with this person or just bed her?

If it's the former, well tough luck since she isn't open to it. Maybe she will be someday but why wait for her if she's not into it? If it's the latter, then you seem to have an open path. If I were you I'd hook up with someone else.

People aren't nearly as predictable as we want them to be. I have more hermit-y tendencies than my fiance, but I'm willing to go out and try new things. And I'm also more willing to tolerate crowds. It's weird.

The important thing is to be comfortable with yourself, and communicate using that security. You don't need to categorize yourself to do that.

I'm a rare woman who doesn't care for gifts. Gifts mean nothing to me. Which is actually a good thing because my fiance is CRAP at giving them! He wouldn't know a meaningful gift for me if it hit him in the face!

Part of it's the whole feminist angle of how "men should use gifts to buy a woman's affection." The more expensive the gift, the more affection he's asking. My coworker, the one with the crap husband, gets some very expensive gifts sometimes. The bigger the transgression, the more expensive the gift. Unfortunately, this does make her forgive him (she's more materialistic than I am), but their deep-seated relationship problems are still there. He would not last a week married to me, lemme tell you! "This designer purse is not going to help me do laundry!!! "

So if you buy her an expensive gift, it may make her feel guilty. Maybe she'll want to be with you a little more, but is that what you want? To use expensive gifts to guilt her into a relationship with you? And if you start now, she won't let you stop. Everything you do "wrong," you'll need to shell out money to keep her.

If it must be meaningful, then make it meaningful. Meaningful doesn't have to mean expensive. "Meaningful" mostly means you've been listening to them and know what they like, instead of the rote "flowers and chocolate and jewelry." Even friends can give each other meaningful gifts. I do. I love giving meaningful gifts to my friends, even if I get nothing in return. But please don't feel the need to make it expensive. To me, that just opens up too many cans of worms.

It's always the two of you. Probably equally. Makes it simpler. That allows for room to improve yourself, while still keeping faith that it was mostly a compatibility issue.

It's all about choice. At the end of the day, we're all still responsible for our failures. Because, yes, we just weren't good enough.
You seem convinced that she sees this as a failure. I'm not so sure she does. Sounds to me like she is itching for something different; and hey, that's her choice and it's okay. That sort of thing happens all the time.

*sigh* I need some outsider advice on something here. How do I get a friend to understand something I'm trying to point out without offending them? He's insinuated things to me but I keep telling him I'm more interested in being a real friend and I don't feel right just being showered with material things I haven't personally purchased. I'm crushing on him and I have reason to believe he likes me but he likes a posh, expensive lifestyle and I like the more practical, simple, intangible things and I just don't really fit in with what he seems is acceptable. I hate fussing and dressing up in fancy clothes but he loves it, we're so completely opposite I just don't think it would work. It hurts to think I just can't make something work out between us because of how vastly different we are.

Oh no, no, I'm just friends with feelings for him I'm trying to understand for now because I'm not 100% sure we could work as a couple. Like I said we're complete opposites and I just am not completely assured I can feel comfortable in his world. I know I'd easily cause him embarrassment because I'm pretty frank about my state of mind at the moment. I make a poor actress when I'm bothered by situations and people. I'm just making an assessment at the moment.

Oh he hasn't given me anything, not that I would let him buy anything for me anyways, and especially not if it was a very expensive thing even if he did. I just don't feel comfortable with "gifts" and I don't want to be hypocritical by actively gold digging.

It's premature to start over analyzing what it'd be like if you actually date. You know when you should analyze stuff like that? When you are dating. It's like the whole thing with Nave, constantly overthinking every minute aspect of something prior to it actually happen.

You can't rely on mental simulators to determine if something is going to work out or not. There are some things that you know by just doing.

Well I'm already over her, so it must have been the latter. I've really tried looking other places for women, but none give me the time of day when I try to talk to them.

Yes Godzilla, it's entirely too early to be analyzing these things.

Even if you were raised differently, or your lifestyles are different, it's only a problem if he imposes them on you, and dictates that you MUST adopt his lifestyle too. That's not a given. I don't get a tirade when I come home with groceries that are not from Whole Foods, even if it's my fiance's default store out of habit.

If it bothers you that he's like that but he's fine with you being the way you are, then honestly that's on you.

I almost forgot that I wanted to comment on this.

You never really put over how much of a relationship you guys had. How long you were "seeing" each other. I know you are from a more conservative society, but in the end, how well did you really know her?

Just because you went out a few times, or spent time together or for a short time decided you were a "couple" =/= compatible.

And who knows maybe you do need someone of an extrovert to help you out of some of your introverted tendencies.

Also, how extroverted was she if she can't even stand up to her parents? Again, nothing you really stated made it sound like she was very outgoing.

You're in school, join some programs, just meet people. Make it a program or after class thing that you are interested in so it will help with your introvertedness.

I'm not, actually. With the odd hours of my job, I won't really have time for a class. I either work from 8-7, 2-7, etc; so forth. I've tried dating websites, and a few of my friends that go to school have had me go to parties, but the nicest I've gotten from a party was last halloween: "cool kick-ass costume." Lol
