    like a worm on the end of a hook, waiting for something to consume me & end it all.

    First of all, take a breath.  You are ok.
    I was in a situation like this a long time ago, however I was the older.  I was 26 & the girl was 19.  Regardless if she was legal or not doesn't matter.  I was in a relationship at the time & knew I shouldn't be doing what I was doing.  Like you I was just having some harmless fun & really didn't think much of it.  Until my girlfriend found out.  We had a huge fight but honestly it wasn't a fight.  A fight usually means each side has a different feeling about something and argue their points.  In my case we both agreed it was a dumb thing to do.  So it was more her telling me how much it hurt her, and me agreeing I effed up & desperately apologized.  In short, if you have something real in front of you, don't do stupid things life flirt on instagram.  You said you love your girlfriend correct?  If that's true then knock it off.  Some day, or the next time (because there is always a next time) she may not be so forgiving & understanding.  She's not saying it's ok & to keep doing it.  She's giving you a pass.  Be grateful & let that be the end of it.  I get those feelings you have when you flirt, trust me I do, it's an ego boost & gets your 17 year old hormones rushing.  Honestly though, think about the shoe being on the other foot.  How would you feel if your girlfriend came to you about her flirting with some older guy.  It would be a kick in the balls and you know it.  So yes, it really is that simple.  
    I hope that helps a little.  Good luck.

    mikeb6901 got a reaction from Bulgakov in Is anyone shy?   
    In general I am a very shy & reserved person.  I would have to say the best thing that helped me with this was a job i had years ago.  It was in retail & it more or less forced me to come out of my shell.  It wasn't easy & it didn't happen over night.  In fact it took quite a long time for me to not shy away from customers.  After a while it became more routine as I realized, this is my job & to do it right I have to be more outgoing & approachable.  Especially in social situations where I used to sit in the corner & hope not to be noticed. So the job itself, as well as my own, I don't know, self-pushing lol, helped me a great deal.

    mikeb6901 got a reaction from Nightjar in What do you do when you feel really bad?   
    i usually just stay in bed or I drive to the beach and sit there all day.  The ocean has always been my happy place.  Most of the time I don't even leave my car.  I crack open the window a bit so I can hear the sounds and smell of the salt air.  I lay my seat back and just think or sleep.  Maybe you could give that a try. Or if  you don't live near the ocean, get one of those sound machines.  It may not be exactly the same, but maybe it's close.

    I've tried video games, reading, anything to try to keep my mind occupied.  honestly what works best for me is a fan in the background or one of those ocean sound machines.  But everyone has their own thing...I hope you find yours soon.

    Honestly I figure everyone is recording everything I say.  That's the world I believe I live in.  I'll never open up in real life because that means I believe the person I'm talking to wants to help me.  I hope it's different for other people but for me I'm on my own from here on.  People I don't care who it is I have to make sure I don't fall asleep or my wallet will come up missing.

    Thank you @JD4010 It was a rather crappy week.  I pretty much lived like a hermit.  But it's a new week & it's time to get back into the world.  Sorry to hear about your job.  That happened to me in 2019.  After 23 years of a job that was my second home, I was let go because the company was sold and I was upper management...so naturally I get the ax.  No grand send off, no package, just "ADIOS"...my boss actually said that...Adios.  So I know how you feel.  Good luck to you though & I hope better things are heading your way!

    Im just the opposite here.  I know I am not alone.  I have a lot of loving and wonderful people who care for me and only want to help.  The problem is I don't want them to.  I would rather live my life alone like a hermit in the woods.  I just want to be left alone so I don't mess up anyones life and bring them down to my misery level.
