    This Is It

    So I woke up this morning (after another night on the couch) with the decision in my head again, that I can not live like this way anymore. I'm really excited and a weight is lifted to even be thinking in this direction, but I know he won't let this be easy. With months of...

    5 Years And No Passion

    I'm 24 years old and I met my fiance 5 years ago. I've always felt like he's been more "in love" with me than I was with him. We got engaged after 9 months and never really have planned a wedding. He's always been my best friend, the one I can laugh with and talk to. He used to...

    Am I Wrong

    I married my husband thinking that physical attraction is superficial and not necessary for a relationship to be successful. I was wrong. I care for my spouse greatly but I am not in love with him. Should i stay? That is a question that plagues me. I don't want to cheat him out...

    Staying For All The Wrong Reasons

    I have been married nearly 14 years.  I have been with my husband for almost 16 years.  After 5 years I fell out of love with my husband.  He changed soon after we were married, about a year in.  He lost focus on us and became selfish with a goal of his.  It was actually...

    I have been with my partner

    for approximately 12 years. I used to be really in love with him and couldn't imagine my life without him. Now - with shame - I admit that I don't even want him in my life anymore. I feel like the life I have been living is a sham. No one knows how strongly I have come to resent...

    The Sparks Are Gone

    I do notice him prance around the house in his boxers or towel, just out of the shower, wanting me to comment. I do comment, but it is forced. I know the comments make him feel good. He is an attractive man and I did desire him when we first met, but not anymore. The thought...

    Am I Bad?

    I am not a secretive person. In my family, I'm the blabber-mouth. So when I say that what I am about to type is something I haven't told anyone, I mean that it has killed me to not confide in someone...my mom, or my sister, or my best friend. I wonder if I'm terrible, and I don't...
