I Am Unhappy In My Current Relationship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 467 People

    Went on vacation with my partner.

    We went to Vegas and my shoes were not right so my feet hurt like hell. They got so bad that I had to sit down many times. He took this as me "pretending" and "getting attention". I told him I walked in heels before all day and that it was just the problem with the shoe I was...

    I Hate My Wife

    We've been married for 3 1/2 years and it feels like 300 years. I do all of the cleaning. Dusting to mopping. I cook more in the summers which I don't mind, she does laundry and "cooks". Her definition of cooking is processed food. I bought a new vaccuum 2 years ago, she hasn...

    Ok, so now when I start really pulling away.

    Really checking out of this relationship, really looking physically and mentally depressed as I have to keep up this act of wanting to live in this house. Only now do you start showing me any sort of affection and it is disgusting to me. It is 5 years too late. Stop touching me...

    I'm In A Rut.

    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.

    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.

    when you are unhappy with yourself,

    it's easy to allow another person's actions dictate how you feel. when you don't know your own self worth, you allow them to determine how you deserve to be treated. you allow yourself to become a convenience instead of a priority. you allow yourself to have no expectations...

    Want To Leave Him But I'm Afraid To Be Alone

    I Have been in this on and off relation since 2006. I am not actually happy with it, and I want to leave him, but the fear of being alone is keeping me from doing it. He does not really want to marry me, and marriage is never an option, at least for him. He never wants to be...
