I just want some feedback... I have been married to the man I love for nearly six years. That may not sound like a lot, but in that time, he has proven to be a great father (of two), a good husband, a patient lover, a hard worker and still tells me to go fishing with a friend after weeks of not getting out of the house (for fun). He is wonderful in many ways most people are not, yet...

I work full-time at a career I love, and come home to care for my family until I collapse into bed. I am completely satisified with those aspects of my life, however, I can't help but feel that I am neglecting my self in that I don't have a "real friend" to bounce things off of. I'm so sad that I have had such dear friends, however, when I do have a concern about my husband or family, I don't feel right "unloading" it on my friends. I feel so alone; my husband is one that stares at the t.v. and eventually says, "what, I was listening". It makes me feel like my thoughts are worthless and without merit. I know he loves me, but I just need someone to talk to.

I almost forgot to mention that he is (with others) impatient, rude, hurtful, and thoughtless. I sometimes feel like I am the referee between him and the world. I have talked to him about all this and, generally, his response is: "you are such a good person; how did I end up so lucky to have you?" Then he'll cuss out the guy next to us and be on his way..."what were we talking about?"
