    Frustrated

    I feel as though I have taken as much as a can.  My relationship with my husband is driving me up the wall.  We cannot keep up a conversation for even five minutes cos it all turns nasty when we do try and communicate. I do know that finances, feeling of intimacy (the...

    I Don't Like Conflict - So Why Am I In This Relationship?

     I have been dating my on-and-off girlfriend for more than 2 years.  She is wonderful on many levels and I love her, but I just can't take this anymore! I prefer to work out my differences by talking about them and finding compromise and understanding.  She...

    My relationship with my wife has frustrated me

    more than any other relationship ever has, especially since I am expected to pay for everything she wants. I am so over the big ego bullshit, the no affection or intimacy. even sex is non existent. How can a woman marry man and then treat him in a way that makes him feel...

    Sometimes He Just Suprises Me

    I love him. But just sometimes he will say something which leaves me speechless.... I do not mean that in the good way either. An example is when we were talking on msn. He randomly then sent me a link to a **** site and told me that that was what he was watching.... ...

    I Just Want It To Work!

    I just want to work! I just want us to be! I love my girlfriend. I just can't get to the point of simply and blindly trusting her so easy. I want to. I know that it's essential for us to rebuild the trust that was broken. Yet I'm being told, then led to feel that I'm over...

    Should I Stop Trying?

    I've been with this guy for 4 months, we recently took a 2 week break over a stupid thing so we got back together. I first ended it because I felt like he didn't try and it got frustrating that I saw him once a week for like one hour. So we ended up just being like "there's no...

    The lack of commitment,

    the lack of energy, lack of concern from my partner frustrates me daily. The lack of intimacy(not sexual) has me isolated and longing. Above all, I am frustrated by my inability to tolerate my circumstances and get past the hurt.

    I Am Evil.

    The father of my baby is convincing me of this. I am evil and I have ruined his life. He hurts me so much all the time. All I've ever wanted was for him to care for my feelings, but he just lies to me and dismisses me and tells me I'm a bad mom. I think he's right, I'm...

    I Need More

    Is This Even A Relationship?

    We have been together for a month, but I am still introduced by him as "a friend." We act every bit like the couple when we are out... sometimes he is so loving... it's blissful to me. I tried to keep myself from getting attached; I could see heartbreak in the future. The age...

    I've been dating my current boyfriend for only 18 months, but already we've had more conflict and drama than any of my other relationships combined. When we first started dating, he was so sweet and kind to me, but I didn't see some of the warning signals. I wish I had. I don't...

    I am in a relationship, and I think it's killing me. I love him so much, but I always feel alone. He loved me first...was so perfect, gentle, caring. Then I had something difficult happen to me, and when I needed him he was distant. He ignores me when I cry, then later uses...

    Frustrated Incorporated

    I am beginning to think that I may be alone in the ability to let go of the past, and enter into new relationships with complete wild abandon. I don't hold back, I jump in with both feet. As I get older I realize that the number of woman who may be a romantic possibility and...

    I am frustrated that you don't do what you say you're going to do, even if it's not your fault most of the time. I am frustrated that we still have communication breakdowns after I've done absolutely everything I can to prevent it. I am frustrated that you always put yourself...
