Can't Make Someone Love You

I have been married 7 years and have a four year old girl, me and my wife have been bickering and arguing most of the 7 years, she has told me that she never was sure about me and was unhappy before we got married, but I know there have been times where she really wants to be with me, she is very sensitive and nervous and has fits of anger, one time she opened up to me and said she gets this overwhelming feelings and said she cant help it and asked me who can she see to help the problem, I told her a counselor which she never did. she always is wanting new things to make her happy and now she has told me she realizes that getting new things cant permanently make her happy and that she is just an unhappy person and at this point she has move out and has said she needs to make her self happy and doesn't have any feeling for me, she says she likes me as a friend, also if it helps she had a problem with bulimia when she was 17-22 I don't know how to help her or what's wrong, we both come from good whole families. I know all she wants is a happy family. I'm not the best to live with and can be demanding but am willing to change. at this time she said she cant get back with me and said I cant make her feel something she doesn't please help.
