    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...

    What I will say right

    now may not apply all of you, but it's still true that a lot of relationships are like this: Some of you may think that you "don't feel loved", but maybe you haven't taken the time to know your partner well enough to recognize HOW he/she loves you. It might be very different...

    I'm recently broken up with my boyfriend of 2 years who is 20 years younger than me. Yes, I saw it coming. And I tried to prepare myself but I had no idea that I would end up loving him this much. When we broke up I cut all ties with him even changed my # but he still found a way...

    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...

    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...

    Have you ever been having a meaningful

    conversation with your SO and get delayed responses, then when you get on Facebook you notice he/she is active on FB? Yep. It's happened to me several times. It kinda feels like you're not top priority.

    I've been married for 16 years

    but have been feeling lonely for so long now. We don't do much together and we hardly talk anymore. I am afraid that I am not in love with him anymore... I love him. Just not feeling in love.

    “Love never dies a natural ― It dies

    because we don't know how to replenish its source. It dies of blindness and errors and betrayals. It dies of illness and wounds; it dies of weariness, of witherings, of tarnishings.” ― Anaïs Nin

    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.
