Wife’s DIARY

Sunday night

I thought he was acting weird. 
We had made plans to meet at a cafe to have coffee. 
I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset that I was a bit late, but he made no comment. 
Conversation wasn’t flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. 
He agreed but he kept quiet and absent. 
I asked him what was wrong. 
He said: “Nothing.” 
I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. 
He said it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry. 
On the way home I told him that I loved him. 
He simply smiled and kept driving. 
I can’t explain his behavior; 
I don’t know why he didn’t say: “I love u, too.” 
When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. 
He just sat there and watched TV; he seemed distant and absent. 
Finally, I decided to go to bed. 
About 10 minutes later he came to bed. 
I could not take it anymore, so I decided to confront him with the situation but he had fallen asleep. 
I started crying and cried until I too fell asleep. 
I don’t know what to do. 
I’m almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. 
My life is a disaster.

That’s the problem with Women – think too much……
