  • I was just offered a position that I have dreamt about for years. It is out of state, so I would have to sell my house and move. My husband and I have been having a rough time for about 4 months now. We don't see eye-to-eye on a lot of things, and I don't care for the people he hangs out with. We rarely do anything together and everything is a joke to him. He is not responsible and isn't very...

    Why do I lie??

    3
    I periodically lie to my wife when I feel trouble is còming. I want to tell her the truth but fear the consequences.  She is my world but lying to her is hurting her and she cannot deal with it anymore. I don't mean to hurt her but struggle being honest. All she asks is that I'm honest with her without her having to drag it out of me. Help!!

    *I've cross posted on the healthy sex group too*Hi, So I've been with my BF almost 6 months. I'm 27, he's 24. We have not had sex. I contracted HSV 1 from a former partner, he has a 3-5 in 100 chance of getting it. Says hes ok with it, I'm on medicine, he says he'll use condoms. He was in the military, has PTSD. he finds that "regressing" helps him cope. So he wears diapers and likes to be...

    Please help.

    I've been with my husband for 9.5 years, married for 5.5. For the last month(ish) we've been wavering on the brink of it all ending and I don't know what to do.My husband has decided that he has fallen out of love with me. Apparently it has been going on for probably over a year and yet he hasn't said anything about it to me. He has raised a number of other issues that (in my opinion) were...

    Controlling, sad, and insecure

    I've been dating my boyfriend for 4 years, he has never given me any reason to believe he's cheating. But I'm so insecure, every time he wants to go out alone with a friend- I feel like I'm losing my mind. I create these scenarios in my head. Ones where he cheats on me and how I would retaliate. Thinking of smashing his car or burning his clothes. But in the end, I'm still sad and alone. I...

    Freaking out....again!

    I recently left a very bad relationship - he was bipolar and wasn't taking the right medication if he took the medication at all.  I was with him 5 years & every 90 days or so he'd get upset about something and rather than deal with the issue he'd just tell me it wasn't working & to get out.  I'd cry get all upset then he'd come clean about the issue that had set him off & say he was sorry. ...
