    Lonely Wife

    I am a lonely wife married for almost 9 years and together for almost 11 years. I fell in love with a man who I thought I could help, but after this long I realize I can't. He is a pothead who also uses drugs, alcohol and sex to cope! We are completely opposite and I just can't...

    Pondering

    I wonder at times if the feeling, the need for intimacy in my life is a direct result of rejection from someone who once professed to love me and claims she still does or perhaps it is a direct result of incorrect thinking... Just maybe I'm overthinking the entire situation and...

    I've been married 30 years,

    we sleep in separate rooms, never have sex for a few years. Not even intimacy. We only talk briefly about family or household stuff. I work with hardly any interactions with others, and since we moved here I have no friends. I need female friendship and communication.
