Our expert says:
Apologies merely in words are meaningless, they have to be reflected in actual continuing behaviour, to be significant. From your description, I can't imagine what makes any of your friends feel so sue things will improve.
You're far better of being alone --- on your own, than being alone in a relationship. I dohbt that this sort of man would bother to join you in marriage counselling, as it sounds as though he runs his life purely so as to suit himself. But some personal counselling for you might help you to feel better, more confident, and to plan your improved future with more confidence
