BrummyNeil Asked: LGBT Can I please ask your opinion on this situation?
I have been with my ex Mark for 10.5 years, and we have been in a Civil Partnership since June 2008.I have had alcohol problems for a few years, as my way of dealing with stress and depression.Mark told me on 15 April that he wanted to end our relationship, and went on to say that he had met someone else on 2 April and they had been having sex since.He told me in detail about how besotted they were with each other.I of course went ballistic and was signed off work sick with insomnia and depression.I have also drank heavily.Mark then spent a lot of time staying in hotels with this guy.Last Monday 30 April, Mark texted to say he was bringing the new guy back to the apartment to stay, and he has in effect moved in.When they arrived last tuesday morning, I have made a point of talking it through with the other guy saying I have no problem.I don't see the point in being nasty as it is happening anyway and I need to stay here whilst I wait for a date to move to a new apartment which will be within the next few weeks.
My main question is, we have all decided to be friends, they have respected my feelings when I told them that it was hurting me seeing them make out in front of me or have noisy sex.They have invited me to go out for meals etc with them.They also give me a hug, especially if I am upset.Many of my friends have said it is sick and wrong, and that I should hate them, but I don't.I was the main reason my relationship failed, and these issues are now being addressed.

1LastWish Asked: I don’t know if it’s me or my relationship is affecting my mental health…?
I've been going out with my boyfriend for 7 months now. It's been great for the first 6 months as we were living together but once the holidays began a month ago and we moved away from each other, things have been a little different.
When we were living together, he'd strike up conversations here and there and keep up with our conversations. He'd tell me that he loves me and he'd buy me stuff and I would do the same. The giving and receiving during then was almost equal (I would give more as I'm the "sharing" type if you get what I mean). Make it really feel like I was in a great relationship. But after we went back to our homes, we have been skyping every night and it has been dragging me down little bit by little bit.
I try to talk to him about himself and myself. Talk about my day and what I've been up to. Ask him how he is doing and if anything has been going on. I try to keep the conversation going but every 5 minutes or so, we hit a dead end. He doesn't start the conversations at all so it's up to me to do it. When he is asked questions or required to answer, he literally gives one line if lucky but mostly the whole "yes" and "no". I understand that he is tired from working 5 days a week but e doesn't even pretend to be interested or act any different on his day-offs. He doesn't even look at me half the time we're talking and when it's close to the time that we stop, he reminds me that it's that time soon.
I've been wondering little by little if he was really interested in me or care about me… Or am I in this relationship by myself. I've also been wondering if he'd know or care if I was injured or even dead. This was really getting me down to the point where I feel physically tired but my mind won't stop thinking about it which has been causing stress which probably led to my insomnia.
I tried confronting him today asking he really thinks of me as his girlfriend not some friends with benefit. But I just didn't have the heart to tell him what I've been feeling for days when he said "I'm sorry. I've got nothing to say. Doesn't mean I'm not interested, just got nothing to say."
Am I the one who's causing trouble for myself? Am I being expecting too much things out of him? Am I thinking too much?
