Exactly as you described. Awkward silence. Or I stand down the hall and make a quick call while I am waiting. It is terrible. In with the teacher, we are fine, but outside is terrible. When we leave I stop to look at something or say I have to go see someone else in the building for a volunteer project so we don't have to walk out together. Our school won't do separate unless there is an order of protection. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I've lost my brother. :( He moved to the south to take an engineering job out of college about 4 years ago, and he's completely transformed into this psychotic conservative who is completely fixated on Tea Party-like causes. I know he spends a lot of time on conservative forums but he's just not the same person. I just unfriended him on Facebook because he posts incessantly about completely insane topics, only to have his looney friends form an echo chamber of reinforcement around him.

If you put your mind to something, you can surprise yourself. Don't indulge yourself by dwelling on the things you find wrong with him; force yourself to assess all the good parts about him. No man is perfect. [ Reply | More ]

you've lost respect for him. You will need to figure out a way to admire something in him, or else it's bed death followed by divorce. [ Reply | More ]

every marriage has down periods, IMO. so a period of feeling blah towards your husband isn't necessarily forever. the question is whether you want to to do anything to help things get better. [ Reply | More ]

I feel the exact same way about my wife. She just texted me that she's all excited about having sex tonight - apparently it's the one night a month she's in the mood - and I'm trying to figure out how to get myself in the right mind to go through with it. Booze and porn, probably? I don't know. [ Reply | More ]

op to posters who asked if i have lost respect - yes. I hate to admit it because it makes me so sad. I definitely don't want to give up. We had a lot of financial problems early in our marriage and we are just coming out of them now. It did a lot of dammage. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I'm a very silly person and like to laugh. I think I have a decent sense of humor. Lately I feel like everyone is so SERIOUS. Is it a sign on the times? Is everyone super stressed? Where is the laughter? Do you laugh a lot with other moms? I feel like everyone has a pole up their asses except for my tight group of girlfriends. they are the only ones I laugh with? Can't anyone laugh elsewhere - like at soccer practive or school pick up/drop off? 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

people who accuse others of being so serious tend to be immature. And often times, it's not that others are SO SERIOUS, it's just that they don't have any patience for the immaturity of the accuser. I don't want to laugh all the time. I have other things I'm focused on. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] I didn't marry the person I thought I loved because he didn't want to marry me at that time or at all. I then married my DH even though I didn't know if I really love him or just wanted to get married and had kids. We have a beautiful child together. I remained friends with my ex and over the years I completely lost affection toward him (he is still unmarried). I found that I crave the feeling of wanting to fall in love with a new person.

Falling in love is over-rated. Even the most passionate relationships come to a more even level and loose some of its passion. Once you have a family together, kindness, support for each other, respect, shared goals - much more important and will facilitate a great relationship. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Loser DH who threatens to divorce me because I'm 45 and at this age don't want/cant handle/can't have more kids. He dragged out the dating until engagement at 41 and now it is my fault. Says he is going to find a younger woman and have the 4 kids he always wanted. Asshole is 45 with inconsist work history and only makes 200k. He will bring home 120 after taxes - 30 in child support = 90 minus having to move to the burbs, commute second car 10k=80 minus a home big enough for a family of 6 50k a year= 30k left to pay for a wife that wont be able to work being pregnant, maternity and taking care of kids for 12 years. What about retirement, college fund, emergency, everything else. He is full of shit. And what if he drops dead? He can't even get a life insurance policy because I own the one from 5 years ago and 50 lbs ago and before document cholesterol and health problems. What a bullshitter. 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
