So, I've recently started a new relationship and I really, really like this guy. We complement each other really well and it feels like things are progressing in a way that I enjoy. The thing is, we're getting to the "confession" point in our relationship. We've been sharing past experiences, both sexual and non-sexual — what made past relationships work or not. Now, my issue is that I had an abortion about eight months ago when I was seeing my last partner — which was part of the reason for our breakup. I feel comfortable about my decision to have an abortion, but I am extremely hesitant to tell new people in my life. I guess it's out of fear of judgement, or the fact that I'm just not interested in someone else's opinion of my choices. I'm starting to feel guilty for keeping something from my new partner, but I can't seem to get past my fear of what he will think... Is it wrong to omit this one part of my past during our conversations? Furthermore, is this something I will need to discuss in every future relationship?
I've known this coworker of mine for a little over five years. We have always had secret crushes on each other, but we are always seeing other people... He's had several failed relationships. His most recent ones include a relationship with another coworker, with whom he agreed to have casual sex. He ended up falling for her, but she didn't. He went through some pain after she broke it off, so he went on to date some 20-year-old girl who one day had a tantrum and broke the fresh (one month or so) relationship. Personally, I haven't been with anyone since my fiancé and I broke up about four years ago. I needed time to heal, and to get to know myself.
We started sexting, and the conversations keep getting more thrilling and interesting. We set up a time and place for us to have our first sexual encounter, and we both were so looking forward to it. I took the day off to get ready, but I didn't hear from him throughout the day. I texted him only once, asking him if he was still coming over. He never replied, never texted, and never called. Now, I see him at work and he completely avoids me and looks away. I don't know what I did wrong and why he won't give me a reason as to why he flaked or changed his mind. He's called me "emotional" in the past; I think he over-analyzed the situation and changed his mind. But, I'm not sure: Why wouldn't he at least say something? My cousin tells me to forget about him and move on, but work seems like an awkward place to be since all this happened. Why did he bail on me without saying a word as to why?
