End of our relationship.
She says she doesn't like the hairs on my bum and it really hurts my feelings..............
This is a joke, do you people get that upset when you have a simple argument with your partners??
Cybershrink, do you get a lot of people coming in about such minute things like we had a fight last night, or what a strange sms?
I notice there aren't many people coming onto this site with major problems, just the usual "it's not working out between us" fodder.
I also notice that when there is a person with a relationship problem on these boards, the responses are rather large.
You are there to help and that's great and I'm glad that the people on here are so supportive and I believe we should support one another, but when I break up with somebody I don't run off to a shrink, I'm sorry. And yes, by Joe, it hurts, but is it really such a big deal. Do these people have more money than sense??

A problem is a problem, but when people can't sort out the most minute problem by themselves isn't that a problem.

Hope you all do come to terms with relationship problems, but there are also people out there who have 2 months left to live because of cancer and don't run off to a psychologist maybe because they have less money? Or because they are wiser and can be strong by themselves?

There you go Shaun, you think I just agree with people?
Sorry, you are not a psychologist and neither am I.

I take your points, Matthew. Our grandparents expected to endure a lot of disdappointment and unpleasantness in life ; and these days many people do seem to expect sunlight and happiness wall-to-wall, and to expect everything to be easy and fun, and also to assume that it is a Major Calamity if this doesnt always work out that way.
