I honestly think it's more about communication, compromise and what works between a particular couple.
It makes me think of a Steve and Miranda moment on SATC when he says, no one will know what happened between us except us - I know that quote is wrong and it's sh!tting me -but the crux of it is that what each person needs is different and what each couple needs is different BUT if you are struggling with a lack of affection, it's totally ok to talk to your DH about it and try and work it out.
I don't know if any of that made sense!

I certainly didn't want to make anyone feel weird for answering and I sure didn't mean to be a thread killer!
I was just very tired and giving a raw and honest response. I appreciate other responses too. Sorry op, I didn't mean to take over your thread.
I know it's something I need to talk to him about but talking to him seems to insight little understanding or response. At best it starts an argument. Ahhhhhh.... I'm rambling.
What I really mean to say is thanks for taking the time to reply to me Miss Kitty.

We have together 24 + years.
Hubby struggles with affection (not dtd just normal everyday touch) . As does 2 of our children. It's a inherited sensory thing.
It's something I have had to learn to deal with. He has had to learn that I need some too. It's been hard and occasionally flares up. It is however life and it's not because he doesn't love me.
