    I'm in a very good relationship,

    been in love with him for so long.. Yet I feel like he doesn't love me the way I love him. Sometimes he shows it but sometimes he's an emotionless and only cares about himself. I constantly have that feeling in the back of my head that he is going to find someone better. Someone...

    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...

    I keep hoping that I can get thru to him,

    that the tunnel of darkness will somehow go back to light. Some days I just don't want to even try to get him to understand, other days I feel hopeful that today's the day he'll finally get what I'm saying. I'm exhausted in trying to get him to love me again. I don't want to be...

    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.

    It is not a lack of love,

    but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages.

    Well, I have this one guy friend

    who lives pretty far away from me. We first met in 8th grade and it was the time where he used to live in my state. But due to an agency trying to separate from his family, he just had to leave my state to go live with his grandparents. We once had a little conversation and he...

    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...

    I thought I had found the woman of my dreams,

    young beautiful and full of life. The beginning of our life together was fun and so affectionate. Now she is but a shell of who she used to be, I feel lost and helpless and just want to be happy again

    To start off, we weren't always long distance.

    Our relationship was new, two months in, barely budding, when I decided to move away for school. Here we are two years later, defying the odds of LDRs. Well.. that's what everybody thinks. Things weren't always like this but now we're both busy leading our own lives. I'm going...

    We met nearly a year ago

    and have engaged in a sort of long-distance relationship almost since the day we started talking. Up until about a month ago, I would say we were happy and enjoyed each other's company. Then his life got very complicated -- death in the family, crazy work schedules, family drama...

    I've been married for 16 years

    Why do we try to force people to stay in our

    i made the mistake of reading old emails from

    my wife. they were lovely well worded encourangement, praise, and love. a few weeks back she claimed GPS tracked me to NOT the bar I was sitting at and she accused me of lying. 11 years ago was a lifetime of joy ago. whats left is this shell of a man afraid to talk.
