...that I felt alone. That I have felt, for over 6 months, that we are living separately. That we are more like roommates than a couple.
To say he was shocked would be an understatement. He didn't text back for over an hour, his work colleague called me and said he was taking him for a drink, and then, finally, I received a text, "Are you leaving me?".
No, my Dear Husband, I am not leaving you. I love you, and I know you love me. However, you have been distant and unappreciative for months. And whenever I have tried to bring it up gently, I have been brushed aside with, "I just need to finish xyz at work"; "I'm tired"; "it will work out"; etc.
It was time to bring out the big guns.
I am sorry I scared you so, DH, but I am sick of feeling this way. You have said you are not upset, but shocked and awake. That this has given you a wake-up call.
I hope so BH, because if not... I can't live with a husband and feel so alone for much longer.
ETA: I hate that i also had to do this while he was at work. It's the only time he reads through his messages properly.
