Advice Needed

I (male 34) have been with my fiance (female 30) now for awhile (2 years) and I love her more than I can say. Recently, I have been thinking about what she has told me she has done in her past. She was married previously and I knew all this. I knew she had been with other men but for some reason its bothering me now. I know it shouldn't and I was fine with ...

Anger and Resentment Towards Emotionally Vulnerable Partner

Hi everyone. I've been in a long distance relationship for several years, and we were fortunate to have the experience of living together for multiple consecutive weeks and months on separate occasions due to schooling/work being virtual. I am deeply, irrevocably in love with them, but have come to the realization that I haven't felt secure with them or able to trust them since our first year of dating. Feelings of resentment and anger and ...

Is there a better way to handle this scenario?


This is a situation that I run into with my wife.
When we are watching TV together, she sometimes has this habit of rewinding the same part of the show multiple times and it can get irritating and starts to spoil a show for me. However, I won't complain even though I may feel annoyed by it. The rewinding thing is a part of her anxious behavior and her family used to give her ...

Spouse Might Be Lazy?

I’m in my late 50s and got married two years ago. My spouse is actually a lifelong best friend and we lived together for two years before getting married. When we lived together I was working as a hospital executive making good money. About five years ago I established care with the VA and was awarded a 70% disability rating due to PTSD. I was medically discharged in the 80s and struggled for about ten ...

Any tips on how to deal with this?

Please pardon the vagueness in the title, I'm just not sure how to describe it.

I'm honestly not even sure entirely what I am experiencing... I'm a sex addict, I think? I don't even know if I want it or if it's a trigger or what honestly. It starts off as just a thought, and gradually continues more and more thoughts about it until I get aroused or it starts becoming a craving. I crave ...

Concerned about inability to forget someone

I am new to this forum and not sure I am posting in the right place. About two years ago I came across someone who seemed like me. I was almost instantly attracted to him mentally, emotionally, and physically. This person is a bit of a public figure, does talks and videos. I sent some fan letters that were ignored. As I do a lot of research I sent some info I thought might be ...

Scretiveness characteristic of workaholism?

In case it matters ... I'm gay and my partner is a bisexual man.

We have dated almost three years. We've become very close. Sex with him is the best sex I've ever had. Our relationship is about much more than sex. Following are excerpts of emails from him.

I was just thinking about you.. Well, let me re-phrase that, I always think of you, but today more.
It would be awesome sleeping together!
Well, ...

Sense of self-worth tied up in appearance

This is something I'm working on with my therapist but would appreciate any constructive or sympathetic feedback.

To make a long story as short as possible, my sense of self-worth seems to be tied up in how attractive my partner is. I'm married 22 years to a beautiful, wonderful woman who I'm lucky to have, but when I see younger, more beautiful women, I feel like, "I would have more self-worth if I were with ...

I want to help him

Well... I have a boyfriend. But... we're already having a hard time and things haven't even started properly between us. We met in mid-November. It was beautiful between us, we had a wonderful connection, but at the beginning of the new year, he started to move away from me. Logically, I started to think he was losing interest in me, but every time I asked him about it, he tried to convince me at all ...

Long long ago

I've recently become aware that I feel like still in love with a girl I went to college with 30 years ago, it's as if it was just yesterday. I was too shy to ask her out then and I lost my chance as the last time I saw her she was about to be married. I've had severe depression since then, is it possible that this could have been the cause? Perhaps I never ...
