How many relationships have you had so far? I have had 3 and nothing worked out. Don’t even wanna try now! Anyone with similar experience?

I've had six, three of which were just meant to serve my selfish needs. Married one of the three. Don't give up, there's someone for everyone. I don't believe in soul mate, but I believe two people dedicated enough can make it work. You get out what you put in 🤣

I think it also matters at what age you had these relationships. Someone older is in a different mindset.

With that being said, I’m 28M and had only one 2.5 year relationship that broke off earlier this year. Yes, only one in my entire life. I learned a lot about who I am and what I want ONLY AFTER the breakup, but it still hurts because I genuinely was in the mindset to marry her. I really don’t feel like starting over again 😩

M2 - agreed. I only now realize the mistakes that both of us made on each side. Not only on my behalf. It does suck because I’m over here trying to decide which ring to buy since plan was to propose this summer, and she decides to end it.

But the way I see it is we got lucky - better now than after engaged or divorced later on.

3 is low. You'll find someone, but have to keep trying

One, lots of girls showed interest in me and asked me out as a teenager but I was too shy and introverted to follow through with it.
In my early 20’s a coworker asked me out and we got married 4 years later. Been happily married for 3 years now.

Sometimes I do wonder what I missed out on by never dating other people, but we compliment each other perfectly and I look forward to many more years together.

3 relationships, but the last one made me forget the first two. I thought I was going to marry her and now that’s over and I have no motivation to put effort into dating. It’s so much work lol. If someone comes around I’m open to it, but I’m not actively trying rn and also not banking on it

I’m gay so it sometimes feels impossible to find people. I’m in my late 20s and I’ve dated four guys for at least a year each. One was a mistake, two broke up because someone moved away, and the fourth I wanted to marry but broke up with me after our first fight and he didn’t know how to reconcile despite all my efforts. I loved the fourth and now I’m like you - I’m wary of starting over because everyone disappoints.

Sometimes I wish when you were with a partner, there was a very clear sign that the person doesn’t love you so that you know it’s time to walk away. My partner and I keep having the same problems, and when I express he’s making me feel a certain way he says he didn’t mean it like that obviously. But when i say something and explain that it’s not how I meant it he doesn’t care and proceeds to label me as an unkind person who doesn’t support/love him unconditionally. *continued in comments*

Jummah Mubarak! May Allah grant you with a day filled with blessings! May your days to come be filled with blessings! Please keep me and all your fellow brothers and sisters in your duas! Please also remember your fellow brothers and sisters who are enduring hardships, illnesses, natural disasters, etc.

May Allah grant us all with that which has khair in it for us. Ameen! 🤲🏻

Even after 6 years of marriage I don't like my husband at all.
Can't/won't Divorce him coz I am a coward and won't be able to face judgements
Although I'm already being judged for not having a kid yet
I don't want a kid with this guy so just can't go ahead with it
