    not sure how I ended up in a superficial

    relationship & how it took me this many yrs to see that. I'm starting to understand the importance of companionship and how lonely people look for it elsewhere.

    Eighteen years of marriage

    and it's not easy. I am unappreciated, unnoticed, degraded verbally, and taken for granted. My children are the best part. He needs a babysitter for his odd working hours and I will not be on welfare. I am very prideful.

    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...

    Sometimes I feel I do not understand him enough

    because he has a stressful job. But then I think I have a stressful job too. We are after all in the same line of work. How come I think about him every day and he can go days without saying a single hi. And yet he can communicate with his friends constantly during the day and...

    I think my boyfriend is addicted to ****.

    I noticed he masturbates almost every day but when it comes to sex we barely do it once every 10 days or so on average and when I try to initiate it he almost always turns me down, saying he's not in the mood. I openly talked to him about it, told him it's affecting our...

    A woman can always tell

    if a man loves her by how much time he is willing to invest. Money spent is meaningless, but time spent is priceless.

    I feel like I'm in a one way relationship.

    I have been feeling very down, and might as well be alone, because when I voice how u feel it's hardly acknowledged. I'm sad. I'm scared. I'm confused, and I'm hurt. I know he loves me, but he is not able to care for someone else's feelings or emotions. I couldn't cry louder for...

    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.
