    Not Sure How To Deal With It

    Well, my situation is rather long and complicated. I am in a relationship with a man that I met 7 years ago but didn't last at that time because he joined the military and long distance love did not work out at 18 yrs old. Fast forward 7 yrs, we reconnected thru FB, I was super...

    So Confused, Every Day!

    Ok, so I guess the only way to tell this story is to start at the beginning. I left my husband, who was a decent enough guy. He just wanted to sit at home all of the time and never see friends or do new things. So, I decided I wanted more for myself and I wanted him to find...

    I am now feeling really optimistic about it, and he has gone deeper into feeling depressed!  I tired to take him out to eat and have some beers to celebrate his getting a job after I got off work, and he wouldn't answer the phone.  I couldn't come home because I knew it...

    I'm the type of person

    that can always find a reason to be happy, and don't even need a reason in the first place. My boyfriend always seems depressed and I think my bubbly happy talking can frustrate him. I'm not trying to be insensitive and I know he can't help it but I don't relate to that so I...

    Trying to Be Supportive

    My boyfriend lost his business a year ago and for the most part has spent the time sleeping all day, or going days without sleeping.  He got a job briefly last summer, but left because his boss was an a-hole and he wasn't used to even having a boss.  I approved because...
