    How is it that no matter what happens,

    I come out wrong? My response is always the wrong one? whatever I say is the wrong thing? I always seem to be wrong. I don't know how I ended up in this place, in this way. Is it possible to be happy and still end up in the wrong EVERY time? I really believe that I am in a happy...

    It's sad to be with someone

    but never be happy. Always longing for what your missing. Someone to cuddle with me during a movie, hold hands as we walk, little love letter with devoted love. Someone who misses me as I miss them. Just feeling blah tonight watching a sappy movie... Remember all the things I...

    Married 28 years and just realizing all my

    storms I've weathered alone. He loves sex, but not affection, never there to hold me when I'm sad. He grew up with an alcoholic father who abused his mom and that has always been the excuse for his lack of affection. I feel sad and depressed and will end by walking out or...

    So Alone.

    I don't know where else to turn. I am so alone. I had an affair two weeks ago and now I feel like I am falling in love with this person, I don't know if its just because I am so alone. I haven't been touched by a man in years, yet I sleep next to one every night.

    So why is it hard to leave

    but want to find someone to take that empty space. I want to find someone to care about me. I don't want to leave where I'm at because of my children.

    I'm not in a good place right now.

    I've actually left my husband for a few days. I think we need some time apart to evaluate whether we can make it through the stress we're facing together. Honestly, I can't tell that much difference being away. We haven't really been talking for a while now. I love him, and it...

    It is hard to leave,

    but I'm tired of feeling like I am second. I'm tired of double standards and now I find myself with trust issues. I'm, at a minimum, stuck for the next 9-12 months. At least that keeps me from making a rash decision after 20 years of marriage. Trying to be rational, logical...

    Just A Little Experiment...

    I am not in the same boat as many people here, my partner and I do still have sex. Just not that often, and never at his instigation. But wait you say, that's not fair...how can he instigate if you always jump in first. Very good question. So I have decided to stop and see what...

    How Sad Is That

    Someone asked me the other day if I was married and I actually had to stop and think before I answered. I have been feeling so alone that I actually forgot for a second that I am married. I guess I feel more like a single person. Now that's just really sad.

    About 95% of the time Im alone. Meaning without him. Im always with my kids, but not much time with what's supposed to be the, "other half". Amputation please! I guess I should add here that we are past the fixing stage and now we both know we are best apart.
