No contact with ex partner for nearly 3 weeks – advice please?

Question by sugakisses: No contact with ex partner for nearly 3 weeks – advice please?
Thank you for taking your time to read my problem.

I have been with my partner for 2 and a half years and were engaged, I am 20 and he is 40. About 9 months, we had a row, he said he didn’t trust me, I admit we were starting to go through a rough patch and I was intouch with a male (never cheated) and my ex partner saw my emails to him. I moved out but felt devestated and was truely sorry that I had confided in another male about our problems. I ended up constantly texting him – sometimes I would get a reply other time I wouldnt, when he did text me though he would tell me he would think about it, or that i needed to come up with an idea so that he would trust me again. He also didn’t like the idea of me going down my local pubs. After me begging for 4 weeks he invited me over to talk and we got back together and things were fine for a while. Then about 2 months ago we started bickering – nothing major i thought. Sometimes Id be having a drink and bring up something I wasnt happy about the day before or something. One evening I was out for my best friends hen party and we had all had a lot to drink. I bumped into him and he gave me a stinking look as if to say look how wrecked u are and turned his back on me, i saw red and was peeved off with him. He texted me to pick me up at the end of the night and I brought up the fack that he had been very rude to me and we started having a row. He told me that he had had enough of me and that i was a different person when i drunk, he told me it was over. i cried and we got bk, he told me after that he said we were over so i would think about my actions in future. 4 weeks ago it was a beautiful day and we had gone out for a couple of drinks together, when we had got home i fancied going out with 1 of my friends and asked him to come with him, he said all he wants is a quiet life and he didnt want to go, but that he didn’t want me to go without him, i admit i got a bit stroppy and then he told me i was starting again and that im nasty when ive had a drink. ( by the way im not living with him nemore at this point) he left my house and said infront of my mother, i dont know why im with her and ‘she’l be phoning me in the morning to apologise’ indeed i did phone him saying sorry for going out, and if i went a bit funny on him coz i had had a drink. Again everything fine. The following Friday he says to me that we should book a date for the wedding. I tell him i think we should wait a bit because we had been arguing. On the Sunday we had gone to a pub for sunday dinner and i had some wine with my meal, we went back and he was moaning about money so i said he pay ur cleaner £10 an hour and she doesnt do a very good job and that she making a fool out of u, he said to me if its such a problem u clean the house, and i said to him i dont live here. anyway it started to get a bit heated so i went upstairs he followed me and started shouting that i was starting again coz i had a drink, he went back downstairs and then come back up asking if i wanted to go for a walk to post a letter, and said no way not after u spoke to me like that, and then he said ive had enough of u anyway, so i took my bag and left, this is nearly 3 weeks ago and i havent heard anything from him, I haven contacted him because ive done it is the past and he hasn done me ne favours, i dont know what ur views are but im feeling like he’s got me hanging on a string, i dont drink much ( a bottle of wine on the weekend) and dont go out much and i think the row we had was a silly thing to argue over, i dont understand how he can ask us to book a date for the wedding on friday and then sunday we have a row and i haven heard nething since. please help, i really miss him, but dont like how ive been treated

Any advice on itinerary part two??

Question by Karla M: Any advice on itinerary part two??
i have asked about this before and am now amending the trip to this itinerary but am still unsure:

flying to verona, brescia for a 13 night trip with my teenage daughter. we leave on the 16th of may

2 nights staying in verona, daytrip to lake garda.
3 nights in venice
then, am not sure if we should spend 3 nights in Florence and take day trips to siena, San Gimignano, montepulciano, chianti maybe etc.

and then 2 nights in lucca
3 nights in rapallo.

but am not sure if we should stay the 4 nights in Florence, and one night in lucca or 2 nights in lucca and 3 nights in Florence??

Best answer:

Answer by jac h
Definitely go to florence and go to the countryside – you can do siena and san gimignano in one day for sure (they are both very small towns) – the landscape is AMAZING. I did chianti and siena/san gimignano as day trips, but it might make sense to look into doing an overnight tour, or renting a car and driving (which I would prefer – more freedom), instead of driving back and forth from florence.
I adore Lucca.. only spent a day there not sure if you need more than that… maybe stay there for one night and two days?
Never been to rapallo… but I would check on the weather.. beach towns can be depressing when the weather isn’t sunny and i know it rains a lot there around this time of year…
Overall, i’d say spend 3 nights in florence (go to the boboli gardens and fiesole if you have time and if trattoria zsazsa is still open, it is yummy simple food), do an overnight trip into the countryside to siena and san gimignano. Spend one night in Lucca (you can always go to pisa too – see the tower before it falls). Check on the weather for rapallo.

Buon viaggio!

Question by : Have you ever spent an evening drinking wine and playing on this site ?
I have, it’s embarrasing when you look back at all the cr*p you wrote. So, I’ve decided to take a long break, both from drinking wine and from playing on this site.
‘Bye, best wishes to all.

Best answer:

Answer by Vamp
Yes, although I think I haven’t managed to do too badly with my answers!

If you feel that drinking wine alters the way you behave in a manner that embarrasses you then giving up the wine seems like a good move. I wish you every success

Ladies and Guys, what do you think this lass is telling me?

wine menus
by StuRap

Question by Paul: Ladies and Guys, what do you think this lass is telling me?
Here’s how the text messages went:

Me: …Hey, do you want 2 come 4 tea at mine Friday I’m making beef. Wine is also on the menu. x

Lass: …I might have to take u up on the offer tomorrow, I’ll let u know for definite by the end of the day tho cos im not sure of my plans yet! Have a good day x

Me:Okay x

9 HOURS LATER…

Lass: just thought I better let u know im not gonna make it tomorrow, thnx for the offer tho’! Hope u have a good weekend, I’ll probably see u on next nite out at the end of the month! (works due)

NEXT DAY…

Me: Ok. Maybe see you then, then.

Me: …just thought on, u said u wanted 2 come bk to (company name) lastnight, was that the drink talking? I can have a word at work if u want me to. Let me know & also let me know if u want 2 have a drink 1 night perhaps. I don’t bite only if u ask me to. (Smiley face) x

Lass: It’ll have been the drink talking I have to be honest with u, Ive split up with my boyfriend but I have got my eye on someone
Continued…

Lass: …else so I just want to see what happens there, sorry, wrong timing x

Me: No Debbie. I was just being friendly. The truth is I enjoy ur company, however ur a nice person from what i can gather & i won’t have minded so much if we did get 2gether but thats not the reason. Hope something does happen 4 u & if u find out the grass int as green as u thought u can perhaps see me if its not the wrong timing. x

Lass: Oh right sorry. i must have got the wrong end of the stick! Never mind, hope u have a good day, spk soon x

Me: Don’t worry about it. I think u misinterpreted my msg. What I was trying to say is that I like ur company as friends but Im a spontaneous guy and i don’t think id resist 2 say the least if u get my drift? x

Lass: I see ok, i appologise, its just me jumping to the wrong conclusion, bit of a blond moment!!

Me: No need to apologise. What conclusion were u jumping to? I like u as a friend, & even if u were a mate, a bloke i mean id
continued…

Me:… id probably still ask u, not that im gay but cos i like ur company. Ur right in 1 respect tho i think ur attractive & sexy x
Waht do I do now? I’ve put my foot in it havn’t I. What to do? Is there any chance do u think?
