I like this image so much because it helped me understand that sometimes what I criticized in myself as "selfish" was not. Taking care of myself- licking my paws to bathe like a cat, or taking time alone to read or spends away from my spouse with supportive friends- that is not actually selfish. A spouse who thinks it is selfish does not respect my needs. (Well - that is the whole premise of an SM, isn't it? No respect of my need for intimacy with sex.) Mpb- I am so glad you went to the gathering and SO glad that you've seen how supportive your group of friends really is. This is a very happy post, as I read it.
I seem to have this problem, and I would love it if I knew why.
My ex tired of me after we'd been together about 6 years. He started staying out super late at night, drinking, smoking pot, and withholding sex.
My current husband I guess decided he was kind of done with me once I got pregnant - though we started having issues at about 3 years into our relationship (I didn't respond as strongly to a world event as he would have liked).
My friends do this too. They are all about hanging out and whatnot, then, after a few years, it's like they have no use for me anymore (the exceptions being my few closest friends).
Any ideas? I don't ignore people. I respond quickly to texts, etc (maybe that's the problem?), and I will drop anything to be there for someone.
Maybe I come on too strong? Or they decide I'm too quirky?
One of the things my husband is always telling me is that I come across as "cold" and somewhat "calculating". Also self-absorbed.
Just wondering if anyone knows what I'm talking a lot or can shed a light.
I have about the same problem. Don't know of any advice to give, but at least you can know you are not the only one.

brian: My dog went to jail once... she got out, ran to a neighbors house, and they called the police. They came and picked her up and took her to the station instead of the pound. The cops found me plastering the neighborhood with Lost Dog signs.

greatcoastal: I've got this windy, wet, rain making, idea that I'll be trying out sometime Sunday night. I'll send it to all my friends North of me when I'm done. It'll be a blast!

misssunnybunny: Anyone else having trouble uploading images? I've tried on Safari, Firefox, Chrome. The image thing keeps telling me that jpg is invalid/not supported file format, and I know I've uploaded plenty as jpg images in the past.

petrushka: no rejection experienced, misssunnybunny - I can only conclude that maybe your jpg is corrupt, or maybe your connection was a bit wonky

tamara68: I had that problem too @missunnybunny, my jpg surely was not currupt but maybe too big. I have just tried with a small image and that worked.

misssunnybunny: I was able to post pictures yesterday. I'm not sure what the problem was, it just started working again. Ah, technology!
