    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...

    Last night I approached her gently (as always),

    hoping to make love to her... She rebuffed me, insisting that she was tired and so... I can understand that of course, it wasn't the first time after all... The thing that hurts though is, throughout the entire 12 years that we are together, I have never said no to her intimate...

    I am so tremendously lonely.

    Good family. Great kids. Good job with a significant income. Nice home. Vacations. Etc. All the 'stuff' that makes up the American Dream. But what I really want, and would give up the stuff to receive, is sincere affection and love.

    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...

    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."

    There is a big lack of communication between us.

    I feel like there is a big empty space that needs to be filled.

    I was told this morning

    that its just emotional neglect and I'll learn to live with it, just accept that its a part of marriage...how the hell do you get used to that? How do you just wake up & say "I'm ok not feeling loved today!" I don't understand it! I can't live like that...I want to feel love...

    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.

    the small dog who is circling around, jumping at the big dog saying "HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! HEY! LOOK AT ME! HEY!" I'm exhausted. I just want his attention. :( Why am I not good enough?

    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...

    His shift brings him home late in the evenings.

    I don't know why I force myself to stay awake. Maybe hoping that he will engage me in some sort of conversation. Instead at midnight I sit up watching a show with him. What I really need is conversation and maybe for him to take a little interest in what is going on at home. In...

    Its one of those times in a marriage

    where one is "re-discovering" themselves after getting married and having a family at what is considered a young age now. It's abundantly hard to love some one so much you face it head on. Instead of just giving up. You do all you can to accommodate what they need, because...

    This morning, the need to be held was so overwhelming, I didn't think I could bear it. I kept looking at my husband, wondering if I should ask for a hug. There is no physical contact between us for years, and it does my self esteem no good, when I have to ask my own husband to...

    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...
