Sounds like a typical Asian family. Some are like that.
Well you ALWAYS date the parents, in fact.When you like someone, you like the way their parents treated them. That IS the 'liking them for who they are' (i. e. how they got to become that way). You become their son-in-law, someone happy with the way they treat their children.
But every single step we take. Parents need to leave their daughters some space. Is one of the reason daughters always say they are single or going with friends but in the reality going to date someone. As soon she says i am dating. Oh hell entire family comes in and over take the relationship. Trust me is annoying, even my ex said it was to much. I hate it when she argue with her parents to stop controlling. I had to talk to her is best we break up. I really didn't want see family to break all because our suggestions.Until this point she is still single in her 28-29. They won't even let her get her own apartment. She even told me, the only way she could be out of her parents house, completely. Is to be married. I am like 😳, WTF? "So no boyfriend an girlfriend living together to see how things works out and if we see we do get along x years move to marriage but straight to marriage from your parents house. Naaaaa that is ridiculously. Occasionally yes invite her parents for example BBQ, fishing, park, restaurants or even to your own apartment and i cook. But being on top every single step nope. Honestly, we only had one intimacy. After that lol we both were graving it. 😂
I honestly feel like there's a risk with all this talk of self-development and loving yourself before you love others and avoiding codependency that people will spend their whole lives reading self-help books and going to the gym and repeating the mantra that they love themselves while looking in a mirror, only to wake up at 55 years old realizing that life has passed them by.
Exactly. That is simply the opposite end of the spectrum. The healthiest option is to be content with oneself, and move on to confidently live their life. (Easier said than done for some people). People who do not come by this naturally, need to do some “self help” and dig deep into their emotions to find out why they are struggling. Then, once they identify the problem; fix it! It should be a process, not a lifestyle. Unfortunately, like you mentioned, there are plenty of people that make the “self help” cycle a way of life. As opposed to a process that is naturally completed by resolving their issues. Those people that you speak of (who are constantly absorbed with “self help”, meditation, spiritual exploration, etc.) are simply avoiding reality. Notice how those people never seem totally content and/or happy? How they always need something more? This is because all of that meditation and “self help” becomes nothing more than a distraction from reality, an avoidance of problems, and it’s just utopian nonsense. They are numbing their pain, and avoiding the real emotional work. Meanwhile, completely losing sight of the outside world. Often failing to maintain any genuine friendships or relationships because of it. All of this happens to be signs of depression and low self-image as well.Also, if they are looking for “self help”... why read a book written by somebody else? That’s not “self help”... that’s help! If they did it themselves, they didn’t need help. 😂
BS, again. Complete BS. You are selling sex-as-commodity.How do you distinguish between genuine interest/desire and codependency?If you are the abusive/manipulative type, that is the problem. You always look to use not to contribute.If you are normal, you cannot be codependent.It is not a relationship type but a personality type. And the asker does not sound manipulative or abusive else they would not be lonely but already milking someone.Read the tone of the asker a bit before denigrating them based on who and how you are.

The hypocrisy of make gag users are funny. They get butthurt when a girl ask such a question but it is suddenly ok when you ask such a question as a guy
They would use me anyways.
Omg now i kinda feel bad for you. Nobody should use any
Speaking as a guy, we generally have to settle. I dated two women in my life I was honestly attracted to, the first for two weeks, after which I discovered we were a bad match, the second was a one-night stand and she had a boyfriend and drunkenly punched me twice during the date.Most of my female friends can date up very easily, so I think women assume that is true for men too. It rarely is.
