Successfully Using An Online Community For Relationship Help
One of the great things about an anonymous online community is that one can sometimes share very personal and very painful things. And sometimes the reward for sharing one's story can be great.
In the PEERtrainer community there is a discussion about a woman whose fiance recently left her. You can read the details of the story, but it felt great to see that this person was getting some great advice and help. And had people there to listen to her.
Another discussion was started by someone who felt ignored and that her husband avoided her. Lots of great responses from both women and men, addressing a very complex issue- what does one do when a husband has checked out?
As I see helpful discussions I will keep updating this post, but I think it is important to point out the value of being able to get things off your chest, get other perspectives. This is all part of being a healthy person.
Here are people asking how did you meet your husband. Getting in shape and making better decisions overall is very appealing to a man. One thing that struck me about this thread was that many found husbands (and wives) through school and social activities. Not so much met someone at a bar. More like, through work, through a friend.
