    Struggling Relationship

    2
    I am new to this group but I lost my son at 31 weeks 5 days into my pregnancy and delivered him in August. Everything about life has been difficult since. The thing I am struggling with the most right now is my relationship with my husband. We have always been very good at communicating and through our loss we did a great job at being there for one another. Now, though there is constant tension...

    It's Not Me, It's You

    3
    I live with a passive-aggressive husband, 28 years. I started noticing it more and more these past few months even though I've always known something just wasn't right.  When things get difficult or a problem arises he shuts down.  He won't talk about any issues that upset him, instead he says he can't deal with it and leaves the room.  He will give me the silent treatment for days over...

    How to you get from dating to a relationship?

    I have been single for 11 years now. Its lonely. I have dated many guys, but its never progressed into a relationship. As the common denominator, I believe I must be doing something wrong, but I am so confused. I have been 'ghosted' so many times, I should be used to it by now, but it just seems to hurt more and more everytime it happens. For example, I met this guy a month ago. Things were going...

I have friends and relatives who are in Healthy relationships, and their advice is a mixure of many things such as communicate listen more  trust your intuition and love yourself. I always believed that Love is complicated and if you have not found love it may not be something that was supposed to have in your life. Not that anything is wrong with you...

    relationship with sisters falling apart

    hi all,I have two sisters (18 and 20 years old) both of whom I used to be very very close with. My family was tight knit. Then about a year ago something began to snap. Suddenly, my sisters began to exclude me from their conversations, and inside jokes.They have both changed 360 degrees, and I can't relate to them anymore which makes me sad. I don't go visit them at college, and we barely talk to...

    The L-Bomb

    Last weekend, my boyfriend and I had been out for drinks and when we got home, he said he loved me. He said he knew he didn't say it much, but he really does. That was the first time either of us had said that to each other. So, we went out with some friends on Valentine's Day (neither of us is that into the holiday) but I said I loved him when we got home. Aaaand then he said he wasn't quite...

    I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years and we've been living together for 2 1/2. Overall, we are great together. We share common interests, we spend time with each other, and we give each other space when we need to. However, when I need to talk to him about sensitive/serious issues/negative feelings, he shuts me out. He doesn't want to acknowledge me or my feelings when I am not happy with...

    Does your partner see *YOU*?

    6
    I was in a relatively good place when I met my partner online. That's what I thought, anyway. What I didn't realize is that I would relapse with my (kinda severe) eating disorder just a month or two into the relationship. When that happened, I told her I could no longer see her; that I needed to focus on my recovery. That I was sorry for wasting her time. She cried and asked to stay in touch. We...

    How do

    How do you get a i guy to care? Care about housework, care about my feelings, care about the kids, care about yardwork, care about our relationship? I love him, but i want to feel loved and cared about. I want him to want to do things with me or for me without asking.
