    I've been married for over 20 years

    and I'm looking at a divorce in my future. I'm so used to coming home to a wife and my two sons and now I face the future of a life alone in an apartment. I made a mess of things and accept the lions share of the blame but I didn't act alone. Meh, it doesn't matter really. I...

    Alone.

    I'm afraid to be alone. I'm afraid of being alone with people I don't know in fear of what they'll do. I'm afraid I'll be alone for the rest of my life. I don't know how to love and have no one to teach me. Secret Admirer I'd wish you'd teach me, like you were taught.

    I am not sure how I feel to be alone.

    Meaning to live alone. The fact is, I never lived alone. I left my parents house when I was 18, but I moved for study to Prague and rented for small amount room in flat of my old aunt. I didn't see her much, but still. Someone was there, we talked and we helped each other. When...

    I'm with a guy who I do love,

    though I'm not sure I love him the way I should after 3 years. We never have sex, he shows me next to no affection and I resent him for it. I've tried breaking up with him 10+ times but I always cave and go back. I'm pretty sure it's because I'm afraid to be alone. I've never...
