It Hasnt All Been Bad!

Twenty two years is a long time to be with the same person and when the majority of those years have been spent with no is an eternity! I do love my husband. We have a history and a friendship. We have raised two amazing kids, so there is a lot to stick around for. But when you crave a physical touch and there isn't one, it is very hard. Feeling rejected and undesirable, that is why I am on EP.

There are literally thousands of people in the E.P. community. I don't think any one of them would critisise you for having 'normal' feelings and desires. Welcome to our warm embrace and stay and share with us.

You have more or less abandoned any hope of this changing haven't you ? That would be entirely understandable as it is simply a matter of accepting the facts.

I believe that you would find, in a different environment, that you would NOT lack physical touch, you would NOT feel rejected and you would NOT feel undesirable.

However, the chasm between the two positions can only be bridged by some hard confronting work, hard choices, and a spike on the pain meter. And it doesn't look like you are up for that just at this time.

Maybe just hold the thought that your life does NOT have to be this way. From that thought, you never know where it might lead you.

Tread your own path.

You and literally THOUSANDS of others are here for the same reason

you are not alone...well, you are....but not in your aloneness~
