    In Love With A Compulsive Liar: Doubts And Fears.

    I met John (not his real name) on December 28, 2011, and he seemed-although a little pushy-perfect. He was cool, attractive, and all around just seemed like a great guy who had everything together. When I introduced my 7 year old son to him he absolutely fell in love. He cried...

    When we got married my husband and I had been together for almost 4 years and had a two year old son.  Ten months after the wedding we had our second son.  So far so good.  Or not.  Our entire relationship was based on lies.  Mainly the lie that he loved...

    What Was I Thinking?!

    My third marriage turned out to be a nightmare. How could an independant business woman who had spent the time to "work on loving herself" fall for a sociopathic liar? Well as it turns out, if you don't figure out what caused all your previous failed relationships, you can't find...

    I love my husband and can't imagine my life

    without him. Not only he gives me the stability I need, he also feels the same if not more for me as well. He has severe OCD and is constantly trying to conceal it. He embraces his so-called, "disability" and doesn't mind it as much as others with OCD. Therefore he conceals it...
