“Treat a man as he is, and he will remain as he is. Treat a man as he could be, and he will become what he should be.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson

“I love you but I’m not in love with you”.
I’ll bet that’s what your husband said right before he left you for another woman.

“Pack his things and throw them out the window or just burn them in the backyard?
Kill him with my bare hands or use a baseball bat?”
I’ll bet these are the first thoughts of any woman who just found out her spouse has been or still is cheating on her.

“When my wife finally admitted that she has cheated on me I was so shocked that for a few long minutes I couldn’t even speak.”
My husband’s best friend was sitting on out couch, looking like he’s been crushed by a bulldozer. He continued:
“A few days ago I went to our laptop to check my mail and I saw that she left hers open. I noticed a lot of email from one of her co-workers (whom I’ve met a few times before), which made me instantly suspicious.”…Continue

Only those of who have experienced living with an emotionally unavailable man can understand the pain of not being able to get close to the one you love.
It seems that no matter what you do, he finds a way to create the distance. Excuses, other activities, anger, criticism, anything that will keep you away from him emotionally.
It’s hard to describe how rejected, unimportant, depressed and alone it can make you feel.…Continue

At some point, almost every woman in a long-term relationship finds herself looking for the adoring man who used to be her best friend. The sharing and caring man who really SAW the amazing woman he has right in front of him and treated her like a princess.
Do you remember this man? Do you wonder where did he go? And who is this cold, distant, uninterested and uncaring creature that took his place?
You may think I am…Continue

You don’t have proof yet, but you suspect your husband is cheating on you. What a world of worry and pain you must be living in.
Is it the young woman at work that “he’s just friends” with? Or the old flame that he’s been chatting with on Facebook? Has he become distant, doesn’t communicate, doesn’t touch you or look you in the eyes? Does it just feel that he’s not interested in you anymore?
The truth is that there are…

“I can’t believe this is happening to me”, my friend Rachel thought while sitting on the sofa with her husband John. Her heart was pounding and her face was turning pale as she heard him saying “I want a divorce.”
She was unable to speak. Her head was spinning and was too overwhelmed to cry. She just sat there listening to him telling her – “I just can’t go on like this anymore. Our marriage is over.”
He had already gone to work when she was able to speak…Continue
