    I have been in a relationship with an amazing

    guy for over a year and a half now but I don't feel needed, wanted or loved anymore. While I do still love him, I don't want to stay with him and not be the girlfriend he deserves but at the same time I don't want to break up with him.

    In-Love With The Wrong Person:

    "Is it normal to love someone so much that it hurts? To the point where it just feels like a massive weight inside your chest and your eyes water up for no reason, but you can't express how much you truly care for someone for the fear of screwing something up or making it sound...

    Everything I do is wrong.

    I can't seem to do anything right. My husband of 10 years says its all my fault. He criticizes everything I do, and I mean everything. He is angry from the moment he gets up in the morning. I just feel disappointed, heart broken and needed to say it out loud. I can't tell...

    I lived a thousand lives each time with you.

    You love me and I love you. There are struggles but we made it through. I'm so blessed I found you. For I found love that is pure and true. I love you. (before the doubts and heartache?)

    I met my husband in high school

    and we've been inseparable ever since. At first our love was one in a million, we'd spend hours on the phone, hours telling each other how much we loved each other. You know that sickening puppy love lol. When he was 17 he moved to Canada, because his mom wanted a better life...

    I feel like my husband

    and I have grown apart and we kind of ended up living like room mates. I an so lonely and want him to treat me like I am special to him. I feel so angry most of the time and I it's hard for me to be nice to him. I have given up and I don't know what to do.

    He often says he loves me

    but action speaks louder than words. He takes care of me and my children....he provides for the family but everything that he does seemed vague. I can never be satisfied. Like something is still missing. I always have this fear of the unknown.

    I had a mother whom was married 8 times.

    I was dedicated to mymom for so many years as a child until I grew up and realized that she never really loved anyone, least of all me as I was the enemy befriending my step dads and giving them true daughterly love. Now I stay far away from my mom who brings me nothing but...

    It's hard to answer the question "what's wrong"

    when nothing is right. I'm tired of trying, sick of crying, I know I've been smiling, but inside I'm dying. Maybe one day it will be ok again. That's all I want. I don't care what it takes. I just want to be ok again. I guess there comes a point where you just have to stop...

    I've been with him for almost 4 years now.

    When I think of it, I never felt loved in our relationship. Lately I feel like he's been taking me for granted. A week can pass without him taking the initiative to text me. We used to see each other every weekend, but now he says he doesn't have time for himself. I thought he...

    Why can't he see that I love him

    initiate hugs and kisses from him. The only way we are affectionate is when I initiate it. I'm not doing it anymore. I bet it will be a week or more before he initiates anything with me. Isn't that a shame? He loves to say that he is not affectionate because he did not see his...

    Pretty Heartbroken

    The worst feeling ever is loving your significant other so damn much you'd do anything and everything for them, and having them admit that they don't feel the same way about you in the slightest.
