If your guy comes out and tells you straight-up what his sexual fantasy is and how he wants you to get involved it will probably take you by surprise and you may even immediately reject the idea because it intimidates you.

If I was lying to myself, I was unaware of it; I really thought that if I just loved him more and put more of myself into the relationship, then it would work out the way it was supposed to. People write into wendy all the time looking for justifications for breaking up with great guys who they are incompatable with. Amanda August 4, , pm. Budjer August 4, , pm.
LTC August 4, , pm. There is never a good time to break up. I agree with that in theory. Any time dealing with this would be taken away from preparing. But on the converse side of that, 3 weeks is nothing in the scheme of our relationship, nothing in the scheme of our lives, and everything in the scheme of his performance at school.
I really wish some of the thumbs down lurkers would explain their opinion. Is it because they disagree and think its mean to wait? Or is it a general disapproval of me? I understand when you post opinions, people disagree. This site used to be less hurtful. I just disagree because, to me, it is FAR worse to feel like a fool than it is to break up.
You will say or do tiny little things, or not say or do tiny little things, that will make him uneasy. So on top of all his previous stress, there will be a bad feeling in the back of his mind about the relationship. Believe me, I know. You feel like you were used. No matter how much you love your fiance, you are, from here on out, deceiving him and living a lie.
He is home for half an hour a day. In general it is not nice to stay with someone a long time after you know it is over, but there are times when it is BETTER to wait.

I do understand the context, but I stand by what I said. Prelims, comps, quals whatever are unbelieveably stressful. If you fuck up, you may be fucked permanently. Silver dragon girl, have you completed a doctoral program?
And by the way, my mother died during my PhD and it was bad. But fucking up a prelim could be worse in the long run. And, by the way, I have lost a parent to cancer, and if a boyfriend had dumped me during the last days and weeks of his life, I would have naturally been far more upset than if one dumped me right before my comps.

His Fantasy Bride
How long are you supposed to wait? The dumpee is going to feel like complete shit either way. You know what would probably make him even MORE upset? Getting broken up with AND failing school. Sadly the nastiness is infiltrating in the same manner. I just think its kinda mean. It may not be finals, it may be comprehensive exams for a Ph. Those are serious.
If you fail to pass twice, you are kicked out of my program—and there go years of work. No degree. No career as a professor. And all after 3 or 4 years of coursework. I completely agree with this.

I think part of the reason so many people are rubbed the wrong way by it though is that she seemed so cavalier about it. It would be different to be talking about it, say six months from after the fact. I know the internet is all anonymous and all, but could you imagine how crushed this guy would be if it got back to him that his girlfriend, the one he was planning on proposing to, was plotting a break up in a month?
I hate that I know this now and I have no idea what to do for the next 3 weeks. To preserve these articles as they originally appeared, The Times does not alter, edit or update them. Occasionally the digitization process introduces transcription errors or other problems. The most recent evidence, while it by no means ends the debate, sheds light on several important aspects of the issue: what the fantasies say about one's sexual orientation, what the most common fantasies are, when they are healthy and when pathological and what they indicate about a couple's relationship.
The latest contribution to the issue is from the Masters and Johnson Institute in a recent article on their treatment program for dissatisfied homosexuals. Researchers at the institute believe that whether a person has homosexual fantasies or heterosexual ones cannot be used as an indication of actual sexual preference. They cite evidence showing the frequency of homosexual fantasies among heterosexuals and heterosexual ones among homosexuals.
In the current issue of The American Journal of Psychiatry, Mark Schwartz and William Masters report a survey of men and women, half of them homosexual and half heterosexual, showing that people's sexual fantasies can be at odds with their sexual orientation. Among both men and women who are homosexual, for example, heterosexual sex ranks as the third most common sexual fantasy.

For heterosexual men and women, homosexual encounters rank fourth and fifth most common, respectively. Among heterosexual men and women, the most common fantasy involved replacement of their usual partners. People tend to be selective in their recall of their own fantasies. To get a full record, David Barlow, director of the Sexuality Research Program at the State University of New York at Albany, asked people to carefully monitor their fantasies for several weeks. Schwartz and Dr.
Masters report a similar variety of sex fantasies in the people they studied. Fantasies of group sex, for example, were the fifth most common among both homosexual and heterosexual men, while fantasies of forced sexual encounters were first among homosexual women and second among heterosexual women. For heterosexual men and women, ob serving other people's sexual encounters was the third most common fantasy.
Finding Out His Sexual Fantasy
Extrapolating from Dr. Barlow's data to the lists reported by Dr.
Masters, the fantasies at the top of the lists were by far more frequent than those at the bottom. While the content of a sexual fantasy does not make it abnormal, its frequency can indicate a psychological problem. Barlow reported that in people with psychiatric problems, such as rapists and child molesters, the frequency of fantasies is extremely high, often a constant obsession throughout the day. How much does the actual content of a fantasy matter? Many sex therapists argue that it does not matter much as long as it proves useful for a couple in lovemaking.
Schwartz, for six years director of research at the Masters and Johnson Institute and now a marital and sex therapist in New Orleans, said in an interview: ''If a man loses his arousal while making love with his wife, and uses a fantasy to get it back, then lets go of the fantasy to focus on the lovemaking again, it's irrelevant what the fantasy is about. It's a helpful bridge back to making love, and increases the couple's intimacy. Bernard Apfelbaum, director of the Berkeley Sex Therapy Group, said, ''It's important to look at the content of a sex fantasy during lovemaking for what it suggests about what's missing in the sexual encounter.
On closer scrutiny, what is important in the fantasy is Raquel Welch's attitude: She's aroused by him, uncritical, accepting.
That's really a message about what he's missing from his wife. That's material to use in therapy for the couple.
