“I cheated because we never have sex”

So here’s the thing. I have a boyfriend. We’ve been together for 7 years and I truly love him, he’s my best friend. My problem is, we’re pretty much just friends. The intimacy is gone. On his end. He doesn’t want to have sex anymore, and even the rare occasion it does happen, it’s like a chore for him and I’m always left wanting more.

He’s gained some weight (which I find sexy af) and is very stressed out, which I’m sympathetic to. I just need some kinda intimacy in my life. I’ve tried to discuss it after about 2 years of unsatisfaction, he won’t even tell me exactly what he’s going through or how to help. He’s even gotten angry when I pushed this discussion.

I’ll be honest, its led me to infidelity. I don’t wanna leave him, I love him more than I’ve every loved anyone, but like everyone, once in a while, I feel starved for emotional AND physical affection, and I’ve strayed to an ex who I know still loves me. I always feel like shit after, but 6 months later I’m calling that side man.

Should I let him go, or stick it out?

 

“Do I tell him about my drug use?”

I have a few issues I would like to discuss here. I have been dating my boyfriend for almost 17 months. We’re very close and pretty much never spend any time apart. However, sometimes he does things that are hurtful.

It doesn’t happen often, just once in a while. Like today he said “I wish you wouldn’t be commenting loving messages on my social media. I like it and all but I want you to keep those things between us.” Continue reading

“Is my older man bored with me?”

I have been with a man who is 26 years older than me for 6 months but recently, within the last month or so, I feel as if he’s not interested anymore. He claims it is because of stress but I just don’t know what to do anymore.

He does not give me affection anymore and the only time he acts as if we are together is when we are around others. I have anxiety and I don’t want to ruin an otherwise happy relationship because of my anxiety or his stress, I just need to know if this is normal. Has the lust just worn off is he bored with me?

“I have a crush on my boss”

My husband is unaffectionate with me. Consequently every male person that shows me any affection I tend to develop feelings for. Usually I just avoid them until my feelings subside, but this time it’s my boss. I’m also having delusions that he has feelings for me. He is much younger and the situation is impossible. I am a little lost and would appreciate any advice.
