    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    and mentally ill. The meds she takes at night knock her out cold. Even now she's just sitting in her recliner. Snoring. I feel bad. I know it's not her fault and she can't help it. But I'm the one who is awake. I'm the one who works all day to pay for all the Dr. visits and meds...

    We have nothing in common. I keep telling myself to stay together because of our daughter but that can only take me so far. I keep wondering how much time do I have left and do I want to spend it like this? Shouldn't I be happy? It is just so frustrating. To top it all off she...

    I work two jobs to pay the bills,

    I barely see my wife, when I do have a night off that I'm home early, she's tired and goes to bed, when I'm craving her attention. It's going days without really seeing her, we text all day but it's not the same to hold, or feel that person next to you.

    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.
