Not sure what to do. We used to make out for hours while dating. I love kissing her almost as much as sex and it feels more intimate to me to kiss. Making love without kissing is empty. I can't feel any passion. Her main excuse is she thinks it's yucky and now that we can have sex she would rather do that. The problem for me is that kissing is an essentail thing for me. Truely, it is almost a deal breaker for me. I am worried that she is lying and has some other reason why she is not doing this or that one or both of us will stray because of this and the marriage will be over. She loves watching kissing shows like the bachelor and I know if we got divored she'd be out kissing the next guy within a few weeks. I tried shaving on the way home from work every day, brushing my teeth all the time, sending love notes, taking her on more dates, talking to her more, and helping more around the house. Nothing seems to be working. And no I didn't do anything wrong that I know of. And I have always been a good kisser. I have never had any complaints from any of my old girlfriends. Any ideas? How can I communicate how much it means to me without it sounding like I am trying to manipulate her or guilt her into it. I want her to want to kiss me passionately. I need this to be able to connect with her.
