    We're in a long distance relationship

    and it sucks. The time difference and our schedules make it tough to really talk and connect. I feels so alone cos he barely bothers to ask me how I am or doesn't care when I tell him how I feel.

    When ever we are in public my husband leaves me

    and ignore me. He always chooses his friends above me. I don't feel like he truly loves me for so many other reasons although he wants to love me. I am not his special someone it's been 7 years and I just feel worthless in my marriage.

    I have only ever been attracted to women of a certain age, much older than me. It's natural for me, so the age difference clearly doesn't matter in my opinion.
