  1. win my wife back - faster!

    The Men's Clubhouse
    Just passed the 5 year anniversary, in the last year or two we slowly drifted apart with the stresses of trying to raise two toddlers and going down to a single income household. There is plenty of blame to go around, but a big fight was ignited when I lost my temper over something that means a...
  2. Help with affection

    The Ladies' Lounge
    So I have been with my bf for over 2 years now. He has a very high sex drive, and I do not. I don't feel like sex is the #1 thing in a relationship. I love my bf and adore him. I feel like I am not good enough for him since I am not as affectionate as him. We have this fight at least once a...
  3. Romance and intimacy

    General Relationship Discussion
    My problem: my husband is not romantic. He does not and has never planned anything special for us, he doesn't buy flowers and no matter how much I talk to him about needing romance and intimacy he does not change, nor try. Dilemma 1: am I expecting to much? Is romance real? Do people really...
  4. Does anyone else feel lonely sometimes?

    The Ladies' Lounge
    Hi, I'm not sure if this is the correct forum. Mods please move my post if it's not. Long story short I have been separated from my husband for 2 years. I recently started to feel very lonely. I do have friends and all that but I miss intimacy and affection. Our marriage was rocky for...
  5. Overly Affectionate Husband

    General Relationship Discussion
    My husband is way too much for me. Aside from wanting sex (and not having it all that often lately), he constantly touches me, rubs my arms or head, wants to be hugged, etc. He wants a deeply romantic relationship after almost 25 years. He feels I am disconnected because I am less affectionate...
  6. Drinking, sex drive and lack of affection

    Sex in Marriage
    Hi, I am new to the forum and debated on where to make my post. My husband and I have been married 9 months. We didn't date long and that is probably part of our problem. Our sex life has become abysmal. Last month we had sex three times and that was partly due to me commenting on our...
  7. Resenting lack of affection from my wife :(

    General Relationship Discussion
    Apologies if this ends up in a rant..... My wife and I have been married for twelve years and I consider myself a good husband. I work hard to provide for my family, I keep myself in shape, I do my share of housework (in fact, I'm the tidy one), I support my wife's choices in her career and...
  8. Trying to hang in there...

    General Relationship Discussion
    Hi. I'm new to this forum so I hope I'm posting to the right place. I've been married for 8 years. We have 3 kids together. He's actually a great person. Works hard, no abuse, drinking, affairs etc. The only problem is there's just no romance in this relationship period. The only things we...
  9. Is There A Such Thing As "Too Much Affection?"

    General Relationship Discussion
    I apologize in advance for this lengthy thread, but i needed a place to vent my thoughts. Im thankful to have found this website. Here is my situation: I grew up in a home where affection didnt come around very often or on a daily basis. A hug here and there was pretty normal in my household...
  10. Affection-less marriage the end?

    General Relationship Discussion
    I am 33 years old, and have been married to my husband for almost 9 years. We have three children, 8, 6 and 2 1/2. We met near my hometown, and ten months later, moved in together two hours away, to another state, closer to his family. My husband was never a very affectionate person. Our...
  11. Being pushed away

    General Relationship Discussion
    Am trying to understand what is going on with my wife and I. We have been together for about 20 years, married for 17. Since our oldest was born 14 yrs ago my wife has had a very low sex drive, roughly once a month but sometimes as much as six months in between. Friction between us is a...
  12. What's up with wife

    General Relationship Discussion
    My wife and I have been married for over ten years and have two children ages 13 and 9. Throughout our marriage we have always been affectionate toward each other and have enjoyed spending time together either alone or with our children. About two years ago I started to notice that my wife...
  13. I want to please my husband!

    General Relationship Discussion
    Ok this is a long story & I'll leave minor details out to reduce its length lol but I figure you cant help if you don't know the situation. I have been with my husband for 16 years, actually since I was 16. We have a beautiful family & have managed to realize many of our dreams through a lot of...

  15. Wife: easier to be affectionate the less you are (after her affair)

    General Relationship Discussion
    I don't know how to begin this post, but I must start somewhere, so here goes. Please feel free to ask me for details or ask me about things that I haven't mentioned that you suspect could be in play... because they probably are, and I just don't want to "over share." I'd like some level of...
  16. Hug and Kiss at end of day drama

    The Men's Clubhouse
    I told her that I think we should hug and kiss at the end of each day because it's been 8-10 hours since we've seen each other. At first it was cool but it felt forced and now we are just back at square one (not doing it at all). When I see her at the end of the day I feel really happy to see...
