    My Wife Shows No Affection

    I am a 39 year old man in pretty good shape, 6'2" and fairly good looking.  I am a very affectionate and loving person, but my wife is not.  I am always the one to initiate sex, hugs, kisses, or any type of physical contact.  I don't understand why she's so...

    Time Wasted

    I married way too young, at the age of 19. I was an insecure, scared child at the time, and all I knew was that I loved this fun-loving guy and I was comfortable and safe with him. So when he proposed, I said yes, even though I knew I wasn't ready. I didn't want to hurt him, and...

    I consider myself a strong independent woman,

    but tonight is hard. Not for any reason out of the ordinary. Maybe it's because he is away tonight. Maybe it's because I just made myself a drink. Maybe it's because it the holidays. Maybe it's because I know my life is about to get very difficult once the divorce process starts...

    Hello everyone I know how all of you feel.

    I have been married for 23 years and I am bored with my husband. He is a good man, but he has always had problems letting go with me. Lovemaking became stale at least when we were intimate. As the years went bye so did our sex life. It has been years and I don't remember what...

    I have been married for 16 years. I love him very much and I know many women would feel lucky to have him. But here is/are the problem/s. I am a very passionate woman. I love sex and affection. Both giving and receiving. My husband on the other hand can take or leave sex. We...

    Wisdom Of Oscar Wilde

    He sums up my marital situation perfectly. "A bore is someone who deprives you of solitude, without providing you with company."

    This morning I wake up

    and he is beside me sleeping away. He only rolls over for a brief moment to tell me he was up till 5 am. And that he expects me to try and keep the kids quiet. I think not, we are currently having a dance party.

    He is gone so often,

    and even when he's here he isn't present, that I have started to forget what it was like to actually miss him. There is a numbness that grew without me noticing over time. Like when your foot falls asleep and you suddenly have to get up for something. You didn't notice it was...

    I really don't know what to do.

    I think since I've been married my husband hasn't been into me. I catch him looking at other women, ****, and recently I caught him sending pictures of his penis to someone he says he met. I just feel so unloved, but the thing is I love him. I've given him chance after...

    It's one of those lonely nights again.

    As I sit here having a one sided conversation with my husband, I'm getting very little response in return. Then I wonder why I constantly crave communication from someone else. Someone who is 1,000 miles away but always makes me feel special.

    Should There Be Something Special ?

    I don't ask for too much from what can be offered. My marriage is purely a facade of few simple beautiful things. But inside, there is always the hunger for true companioship between married couples. I long for a good conversation. Something that would add up to spice an endowing...

    and I still feel isolated in my marriage. But things have gotten better. Not because my husband has matured as a person or become compassionate towards me. I got a "promotion" in November of last year. My new work schedule means I spend a lot less time with him. Two days a week...

    My husband only spends time with friends

    and no time with my baby and me. The time he is home, he is working on the computer and does not like to be bothered at all. As soon as a friend calls to do something, he drops everything and runs to go out with them. You should see the excitement and desperation. I do not mind...

    It's amazing how you can think you are

    so close to someone only to have them grow into a total stranger. Talking to the person you started a family with shouldnt feel awkward.

    I've been married 24 yrs this year.

    During this time, I totally devoted my life to being a loyal wife and a good mother. Now that my baby is 17, we finally have time for us. But we have nothing in common. Being total opposites has helped us in the past. We kind of leveled each other out. Now, it's working against...

    My story is long but in a nut shell,

    I made a very poor choice when i got married in Sept. I used a permanent solution for a temporary problem. Now I feel like nothing I say is understood. He's all redneck and I'm more music and old movies. Add a 5yo kid and WOW you got a party!

    or traumatic has happened to me since my husband and I became a couple, he has managed to **** on me. Make me feel worse. Upset me and find a way to make his crappy feelings my fault. My grandma died in September. I love her so much. She is a big reason I didn't commit suicide...

    Who ever thought that

    when they got married they would eventually find themselves feeling like the loneliest person on earth? I have too much life left in me and too much love to give to continue down this path.

    I wake up every morning crying.

    I am having trouble accepting that my marriage is sexless. I don't believe in divorce or infidelity. So I know I have to find acceptance. It's just so hard. We never touch, cuddle, there's 2 feet between us every night in bed. I can not even talk about this with him unless I...
