Anyone else get super stressed/on edge/worried when your parents come to visit because your SO always seems to get into fights with them? Any advice to help the situation? Always feel like the middle man and can’t take it anymore.

Who intimates fights?
What do they fight about?
Have you discussed your concerns with each of them separately?
What is nature and duration of your relationship with SO?

Need more details. Is your SO difficult, or is it more your parents? Is it a clash of values?

San Diego recs for 5 days with gf?

I am 29F, doing great at work, have amazing family and friends. Everyone thinks I have everything anyone could ask for. And I realise that too, BUT I’m NOT happy! I have crazy working hours, I haven’t dated anyone for 6 years now. Didn’t find anyone right, or maybe didn’t have a lot of time to experiment. I think it’s the void of not having a constant with me. And I don’t know how to find one now! Everyone knows me as a cheerful person, but honestly I’m just a sad, depressed and a lonely person.

Ever since, I have been getting feelings of being a failure because I failed all the other victims who went through this. If not that, then I get feelings where maybe I hallucinated and assumed the whole deed and the rape didn’t even actually happen.
