Hi, Morning crew,
I am in a relationship with a man who is incarcerated. We have been together for about three years now. He is loving, thoughtful and caring. Even though he is incarcerated, he professes [his love], provides, and protects. He has accomplished things for me and my kids that most women wish there men would do out here. He has a while to go before he is released. I am getting older and I am often lonely. I practice doing the right things in our relationship. I never have to question if he loves me or if I love him. Some days I can't remember my life when he wasn't in jail. It's just that I get so lonely, and I have needs and wants that he can't fulfill physically. I really want to wait for him, but this is what I'm facing. I also would like for you to know, that I'm not selfish. I just don't know what to do.
