I am so lonely, and he is in the same house

I have tried to talk to him
we went to one therapy session

he acts like I am not even in the same room
he does not return any emails-like he used to
he does not call during the day-like he used to
he only kisses me a quick peck goodbye in am
he comes to bed when he thinks that I am asleep
he gets out of bed in am when he thinks I am asleep to go onto computer 2 look at porn

I think the only reason that he telerates me in HIS house is because we have a child together, and he would not see her much if I moved out, plus he would have to pay 17% of his income to support her since I am SAHM with no job at this time

I AM SO LONELY, I have tried to reach out to him, talk to him, and he is more distant than ever.

  • Listen. I understand that you want him to be the guy you married. You want that life back in your marriage and you want him to be the one to give it to you. However, if he isn't willing to change then he isn't going to change. You have clearly made efforts to get him going in the right direction and as you said "He's more distant then ever". If he's pulling away from you in the process of you trying to reel him back in then you've pretty much lost him. I honestly think that if you're this unhappy and this lonely in your marriage, then it's time to cut your losses. He isn't willing to put forth the effor to make your marriage what it was, and he's not going to change for you. You're living with a roommate that's all. And you can do that with your kid somewhere else and be a lot happier.

  • You cant go on living like this. Maybe it is time to get a job and start stashing money away. Tell him you just need ot be out of the house and quit reaching out to him. The more you grasp the more he runs away it sounds like. Stand on your own and go be independant and happy. The change may wake him up (soemtimes when we get needy and clingy guys turn away even more) but confidence and happiness may turn him back. If it doesnt you will still have confidence, happiness and some money in your pocket for your future.

  • It sounds like the relationship is over. If he is avoiding you at all costs, and is not willing to work with you, he is done. It is not fair to you or your child to stay with him in this loveless relationship. You may tolerate each other now, but eventually that will go away. You will be looking for a way out, and so will he. You need to get out, and do it now. You will continue to be lonely until you find your independence and yourself. Good luck.

  • how i wasnt the same and he knew he was doing wrong but hejust didnt feel the same way as before verything was a routin going from work comming home and everything. i knew i wasnt trying myself never did i try to do something new to change things to spice thing up to me it was like a routine too. so we were just basically not expecting anything from each others anymore otherthan the same thing. so i asked him if we were going to try adn work this out he said he rally wanted to. we did hve to do a lot to save our relationship we tried and spend as much time together posible and he did help out a lot more so i wouldnt be as tired adn thing got so much better now we are the same if not better then how we were when we started daiting. its the best thing ever now. so i would say leave him like that if you havnt tried talking to him. i think you need to talk to him and make sure you guys put this in the open. try getting pretty and

  • doing something special if fyou truly love himi adn want to save this then go for it if he loves you back he will work with you to save this if it works out then this will only make your relaltionship stronger. tlak to him ask him what he expect or will like from you adn you do the same about him. put eerythign in the open and just spice things out. random little stuff like inthe morning when he laves and just gives you a little kids you know what grab him and you give him a big one just random stuff so yo guys can change thing around if you love him dont give up. im not saying go all on him but let him know that you are willing to tryand save the relationship if he loves you he will do the same. now if you know its done adn over with or he doesnt seem to want to try it then its best to go on and do your own life you can do it!!! do what makes you happy i wish you the best !!!! : ) make sure YOUR happy
