I feel so embarrassed about this relationship issue, I just feel so alone and as though no one else is experiencing this.
Everywhere I look, see, hear, there's always the joke that all men think about is sex. Even on bubhub there will be jokes about men always having it on their mind. I have the opposite problem with my DH, and it makes me feel incredibly unattractive, to the point where sometimes I cry myself to sleep.
Don't get me wrong, we do have sex, but it's on average once a week. I rarely initiate anymore because I got so sick of being rejected and emotionally just couldn't stand it, so now I just leave it to him. Sometimes we will go a fortnight or so without sex, and he doesn't really notice.
I'm a size 12, very healthy weight range, large bust, thin waist. I keep healthy, wear makeup. Without sounding completely up myself, I do get attention from other men, so I can't be completely repulsive.
He's told me he doesn't really like kissing. He will often shake me off when I go to kiss him and says "later", or something similar. There's rarely a "later". He will often promise we will have sex but will then say he's too tired. I've even tried lingerie.... He said "what are you doing?" and went back to watching TV. I was so embarrassed I don't think I could ever do that again.
Every other part of our relationship is fine. We're not perfect, but we love each other and have fun together.
I feel so left out. When other women complain about their husbands really wanting them physically.. I feel so jealous. I wish my husband wanted me like that.
I rarely feel like he thinks I'm beautiful, or pretty. I feel like he's not really attracted to me like that at all. Please someone tell me I'm not the only one
