Your question was: Have anyother women been sucked into a match.com Nigerian/Republic of Benin scam??.
>>How do people stay in love?<<.
It takes A LOT of work. And the work never stops.
>>I feel like we need a common project exercise, or volunteer work, or something. Some people have a child, or work together.<<.
Well, a child shouldn't be viewed as a 'project' or a reason to get back the flame. I'm not saying that's what you are doing, but I do know that some people do this. I do agree that exercising or doing other activities can help. Making the time is the hard part..
I wouldn't worry too much about being irritable. Who isn't after a long day sometimes lol? I swear, my SO drives me nuts sometimes and I don't live with him. It's the close proximity to the other person that can rattle your nerves; he's your SO so you will spend more time in close quarters with him than with anyone else. Maybe asking him to give you a massage once in a while after work could help; you could also return the favour..

Relationships go in ebbs and flows, it's the cement underneath, the mutual commitment to stay the course, that helps keep couples together. I love the idea of a project together, something fun that binds you. As long as you never take each other for granted, you're golden.
There's an ebb and flow and your feelings and his feelings won't always be on even keel but if you're both committed to working it out even during the rough times that's love.
With a lot of hard work and understanding, sacrifice, and supoprt for one anothers needs. Ususlly this is more understood when people jhave decided to be smart and date using Match.com for longer than 7 months before moving into together. But sense you are there wecome to married life. Its not all glitts and glam and susie home maker life.
What did you think it was going to be Ozzie and Harriett before the kids...
Has stress gotten the better of you? You could try getting away for a weekend and see if that helps communication and sex...
