    He Ia a Good Person But...

    I married someone hoping that the love would grow. But it never did. It's been 16 years now and I am ready to get a divorce. All I can say is NEVER EVER marry someone unless you are truly "in love" with them. I have been feeling so alone for the past 6 of these years...

    I Know It's My Fault..

    5 years ago I married someone I knew I didn't love. I "liked" him and I needed to be married (the reason is too long to explain) at the time so I did it and I thought liking him would be enough. Well, we didn't even have sex on our honeymoon and as time has gone by...

    If you find yourself with someone whom you feel only wants you but wouldn’t move heaven and earth to keep you, then move on. You’re not a thing and you deserve better.
