I Am Married But Lonely and Lost

Still in love with my spouse but somewhere along the way we lost ourselves and each other. Most days it seems it feels like you are living with your bestfriend 507 People

    I am so lonely. I dedicated my life to my

    children and husband. Now my children are grown and have their own families. My hubby has changed careers and is gone out of town Monday thru Friday.

    When you give your all

    for the prime years of your life and beyond, when you sacrifice yourself daily for the needs of another, when you put them front and center, only to realize a decade later that the girl on the bus sitting next to you has more desire and passion for you than your wife ever will.

    Depressed is not just a feeling,

    after awhile it becomes your way of life, sure i get excited about things i enjoy, sure i'm not moping around all day... but the sparks are gone, counseling, retreats... everything tried, like really given a full forced effort and there is just nothing. Sometime i think if it...

    Today is my birthday,

    my first in my 3 month old marriage. We knew each other for many many years before marriage and even lived together for couple of years. Nowadays we do everything apart. If at all we spend time with each other we end up fighting. I can't believe the mistake I made- and I don't...

    horse !!! She is always right never admits to anything she's possibly done wrong ! Turns every small argument around on me !! On top of all that we don't have sex anymore I want out !!!

    I should be happy. My husband is genuinely a

    good guy. We've been together nearly six years, married for just one. I feel as though he's not in love with me. There's no passion. I fear he is not my soulmate. I'm going to leave this vague for now.. It's comforting to know I'm not the only one feeling this way.

    I'm trying to help her understand the issues

    that consume our relationship in hopes that things will get better. I worry that she may not be comprehending what I'm saying though. or has the will to put for effort so we can both rebuild our foundation.

    I've decided to treat this like my own

    I went to see my therapist yesterday but i don't know if it helped, she's very good. But I'm so out of it. Now I don't think I would ever hurt myself. I'm just really tired of feeling this way. My wife wants me to remember my lies that I've told her in the past and tell her. I...

    A lot of it is my fault, no! I never cheated on my wife. I know that's the first thing that jumps out at people. But I never cheated on her. But I was not honest, and now nothing gets believed, no one to blame but myself. I feel alone. We don't have kids, actually I don't have...

    even sure what I'm doing.... but here is my first story. My "experience" is married but lonely and lost. I picked that from the list, but I suppose it is apt. It is the main reason I am here. I can sum it up by saying that after 15 years of marriage, we just fell out of love...

    I feel isolated from women.

    Even though I'm married. It started after 3rd grade when I was taken out of my mixed primary school and sent to all boys schools for 9 years, but I do not blame my parents in any way. Maybe it's just in my mind but it feels like something fundamental was broken, and I just don't...
