Thank you for listening Glenn. I really don't have many friends that actually have a wife and kids nor care to how to treat them and give them emotional side of you that they most deserve. I have a real problem with putting my emotions out in the open for my family to see. I tell them I love them all the time but those are really just words. I would like to learn how to express my true feelings and show them physically that I deeply care and respect them unconditionally. I think my problems come from the Army and becoming so close to quite a few people only to see them killed in combat. I have become so numb emotionally it is hard for me let people see how i truely feel at risk of causing heartache. I know my family would never hurt me emotionally it is just something I really need work on. I appriciate your concern and any advise. Thank You.

She hasn't acused you, yet is treating you like you have been accused? Well, that's some horrid villification."
"Sorry Prescott I didn't mean to downplay your issues.
I echo a lot of what the guys are saying here. Friendship comes first and you need to sit him down and tell him how you feel and what you are seeing. And if it is making you uncomfortable…"
""Two of my only true friends"....its hard but take a look at your life and expand your social circle...this is a bigger issue than your question. What happens when they break up and you potentially lose both of them?"
