Hi @Mermaidgirl6, I'm really sorry to hear that you haven't felt welcomed here on ReachOut.

I'm glad to hear you have decided to be true to yourself, and I hope you will stick around the forums.

Talk to her and tell her about what you feel. You might not know what will happen next, but at least, you did told her what you really feel. Smiley Happy

@ElleBelle I say - don't blame the past or anyone!!..At least I'm unique! - like everybody else Smiley Wink

Everyone is so friendly basically here anyway, so the more I do what i love out here - the happier I am in general with life adn myself Heart


@TommyC Feelings take time to sort out, don't they?

@Autumn Talking about how you feel takes guts to open up to someone about.


I need those people and connection times and chilling out/sharing times to grow and give back, and it's what i want in my life! Smiley Happy


In my experience, having 'unfinished business' with someone is good to get settled, especially when there are amicable feelings , and caring in the bond....In the past I have wanted something bad...Always awesome when they understand you and esp that u meant no harm EVER - and are cool about a LOT of things (Miss Easygoing here! Smiley Wink ).



Re: Am I still in love with my ex??

You make some really great points @Mermaidgirl6!  and I'm so happy to hear that you're in a really good place and are happier in life and with yourself!


Social anxiety can definitely make things tricky, but it sounds like you've already got some strategies in place to help deal with that, which is awesome to hear!
