Not looking for a dramatic exit....

Bad timing. Chance of getting back together with my first love?

Sigh* here goes fellow MeFi(ers). It's time for another backstory, thank you in advance for your patience. You guys are the best. So my girlfriend of a little over 2 years just broke up with me. The first year we were in college together, the second year I graduated and she was still in school. We were long distance for about 200miles. Surprisingly, that long distance worked because we got to see each other almost every other weekend. [more inside]

I feel like my relationshipper is broken.

I'm a 28 year old single guy living in a college town in the middle of nowhere. I moved here to date someone (and since broken up with her and dated several others), but now I'm staying because I've got a great job, a great living situation, and some good friends. Unfortunately, I'm really frustrated with dating. [more inside]

Connecting with 13 year old son

I really feel my 13 year old son pulling away from me. He text msgs a ton with his friends and just the time we spend together now is minimal. I know this is totally normal adolescent development but it still hurts me inside. Can you suggest things we might do together now to connect? Watching a movie with me is even hard to get him to do. He is a normal well adjusted kid---no problems in school. We usually eat dinner together as a family and I am here when he gets home from school and usually fix his breakfast and see him in the morning for 15 mins til he is out the door. He is my youngest child and it feels sad to not have things we do in common anymore. I used to walk him to school in 6th grade under the guise of giving our dog her daily walk but this year that ended. Help!

How do I tell my boyfriend I want to hear "I love you" and feel crazy passion from him soon?

How do I tell my boyfriend I want to hear "I love you" and feel crazy passion from him soon? I don't think it should be taking so long. We've been seeing each other for over 8 months, 2 to 3 times a week. If he was thinking about this relationship seriously and wanting to commit shouldn't he be asking me questions about future plans? if I want a family? thoughts on marriage? moving in? All things I would like if only he asked. I don't know how to discuss this with him. I also don't want to be the one repeatedly bringing it up. I want to see some initiative from him. How do I tell him this and add that if I don't see something from him after a year or so I just won't be hanging around.

She's gone

We were daily buddies at work for two years - she has a boyfriend and I'm married - but we cracked each other up and "fought the man" together. There were rules, and if I pushed them she reminded me, sometimes harshly but still there was genuine mutual platonic affection. About a month after me getting laid off she won't talk to me anymore. It's really bothering me because I don't know why... advice?? [more inside]
