    I'm not certain unhappy is the best descriptor.

    Regardless, the simple fact is that I'm not "in love" with her. I do care about her, and her son. I don't want anything to happen to them, but I don't want to spend the rest of my life with her either.

    My boyfriend and I work opposite schedules

    so I am alone most of time. I go out with my girlfriends but it's not the same as having a man around. I think about cheating, just for the companionship and to feel wanted. I want someone to touch and kiss me. I want to feel sexy.
