    In a strange place

    4
    My partner and I are in a strange place at the moment. We're both 26 and have been together for 5 years, living together for 4.5 years. He proposed to me in September 2016. Then, just after Christmas last year (3 months after the proposal), he "broke up" with me. The reasons for this is that I had been drinking quite heavily for the past couple of years, and he told me that when he had come...

She's the first girl I have ever been in love with. When we got toget the sex was good, not great but I wasn't complaining. She is nearly 28 and I'm 19. I thought this wasn't a big deal at first.

    Hello, new to this site and group

    2
    I know my relationship isn't healthy, simply put. I've been living in a intimate-less marriage for several years, and prior to that it was far from normal. He does deal with some physical issues and depression, but I also believe he uses them as an excuse to not share affection or intimacy.I am at a point where I realize it is beyond fixing, but for many reasons we have to stay together for the...

    No love

     I just had to do the hardest thing I have ever had to do with my life. My boyfriend broke up with me tonight and I had to say goodbye to the one that I love. He said he loves me but he wants to focus on himself.  I'm feeling really hurt and I'm completely shattered. I feel so alone

    Lost and confused and hurt

    8
    I've been with my fiancé for two years. We have our arguments but the first year was great. We just brought a house and as some may celebrate he seems like he's not happy anymore he's been doing drugs. Staying out hours of the night not all the time but more than he should. I'm so hurt it's like I don't know what I did to push him out there to do it. He says he's happy and still wants the...

My partner (let's just call her Ally) and I have a great relationship, she has many qualities that I seek in a life partner. However there is a large issue that always seems to hit a sore point in our relationship. I suspect or rather I strongly feel that she is...

    Those who are afraid of commitment

    I have been thinking a lot about fear of commitment lately. I've stumbled across a lot of articles about that and I see posts on here about it all the time. But it got me wondering....are people who are afraid of commitment only doomed to be alone forever because nobody is patient enough to wait for them to overcome their fear? Is it that people are so sucked into concepts like marriage and...

    Advice needed. "Taking A Break"

    Four days ago, my fiancé and partner of 5 years told me that he is no longer attracted to me, his feelings have completely gone and he has fallen out of love with me. Initially he said he wants to break up, now he has said he needs "time". He has been staying at a friends place down the street so he is still very close by. He has not taken a bag with him, just popped back to get a change of...

    My husband's best friend is ruining our marriage..

    My husband and his best friend talk literally every day, multiple times. I didn't realize how bad it was until I saw 71 texts and 4 pages worth of calls in less than 12 days on the current phone bill. We have been going to counseling in regard to this, and he said it would change, but clearly it hasn't. His best friend never put in an effort to know me, and is an immature drunk. Everytime...
