It's ironic how lots of women search for a man who doesn't have sex as n1 in his head, yet there comes a time when hormones hit woman's head and sex starts to be something greatly desired and then turns out a man can't do it.
My view on love - love is something that needs to be taken care of constantly by both people. I think both have stopped working on it in this situation.
When person starts thinking "maybe i don't love", he's like brainwashing himself and killing the feeling that might still be there.
I do also think he has hormone problems if he's ~30 and has no desire for sex.
And i think he should be able to listen you out and think of compromises of course (maybe he IS ok with you going to other man).
My opinion about swapping hubby for a friend - i would think of it as cheating. Friend is being liked probably because he shows some attention.
Did you ever think you could just masturbate? It's not cheating, and you can get pleasure whenever you wish.
I'm only wondering how would you feel if you have swapped the places with hubby. I mean he would desire sex and affection while you'd have no such thought. Would you be happy if he went to some other woman to get every thing you can't give at the moment?
The weird thing is, marriage ending is based on lack of sex/affection. Maybe my example is out of place, but, it sounds similar to "hey hun, you gained 10kg, i told you about it, but you are not working on it, our marriage is at the risk".
Did you tell him about your friend?
Also, there is interesting detail to think about. Did he change over the 6 years of marriage? Did he stop doing something you used to like?
Did you change? Did you stop doing something he used to like?
feel like sexually I'm just starting to hit my prime
How different was the situation before this period?
This tells me that he doesn't always reject you and still accepts your "sex invitations" from time to time.
Can it be so that when sex was not desired as much, he was same as he is now and you didn't care about it until now?
