    Does he just not get it?

    Sorry, this is going to be long.We have been married 25 year's, we used to go do things togethrr all the time. In the last 20 yrs it's like pulling teeth to get him to do anything with me. All he wants to do is sit and watch TV with his face buried in a tablet, laptop, ect.  But if one of the guys call and says lets play some golf he's gone! He goes on golf weekends with the guys while I sit...

    Sexually frustrated

    Sorry if this kind of post doesn't belong here but it is a relationship issue. Basically we are both tired initiating. We both feel like we always initiate and so both end up feeling unwanted. It's to the point that I want to cry thinking about it. It's really stupid. We both wait for the other and it's made me even feel bored with the sex we do have. I just want him to make me feel like he...

    Should i stick around?

    I've been friends with women for 2 years. We started seeing each other 2 and half months ago. She's seemed very invested in the beginning and that came and went. A week of good then a few days of backing off. She's never been in a long term relationship and told me all the time she wasn't used to the way I treated her. Buying her flowers for mothers day, dropping off coffee at her work. I know...

    Where can I meet girls that would understand?

    I've had zero luck dating because of my bipolarism. I'm a good looking guy, educated, ambitious, but I have issues communicating with girls because they trigger a down mood for me. I get all anxiety ridden. Worse off, my instability has made my friend network nonexistent. So anyone have suggestions where I can meet girls that are understanding? I'm much better when I feel like the other person...

    Is This Normal?

    Lately I've been feeling less attracted to my husband. I don't really know why except that he's been doing some things that are aggravating and frankly turn me off. I was trying to get a show we watch onto a thumb drive and I found his porn. I know he watches it, and it was only two videos on the hard drive, but one of them was of a threesome and God knows what the other one was. We briefly...

    How to deal with moody husband?

    I am the one with clinical depression, generalized anxiety disorder, and insomnia. Yet, I feel like my husband tries to one up me all the time with his unhappiness. Never mind that I am the one on 4 different medications, I try not to complain and be positive, yet he's the one who gets to act like a grumpy teenager all the time. It's really tiring. I told him if he's so unhappy, he can just tell...

    I figured out that every time my relationship sucks, the best thing to do is to put my energy into education and career advancement and things always get resolved for the best.

    Handling in-laws

    9
    One upside of divorce is an anxiety-free life not having to attend functions at the in-laws.  I did not enjoy them at all.The reason I want to talk about this is because I feel bad about it.  I dont want it to be the reason I'm afraid to meet someone new. I dont like gossips, and nosy, calculating people.....I just dont like people in my sandbox, I guess I'm just not that agreeable.Possibly...
