I have seen that men have a problem being romantic and adventures with their spouse! I wonder why this is? Is it because of fear and insecurities!
Yes, both of those, just like women! If the partner is wise enough though there seems to be a difference.
I have been married to a very romantic woman, but she used her womanly ways to ensure that I remained romantic so I think it depends on the whole relationship also.
earnesthub are ever intimidated by this and if so what do you do about it?
Yes mdawson, while going through the long drama with cancer, I lost weight and libido.
I told my wife about how depleted I felt and assured her that I loved her often and she eased it in to a conversation that there was a problem with my performance.
We were OK, I had to recognize that it was not so much about the sex, but with the distraction of fighting the cancer I had lost focus!
Being a typical human I bungled on and we worked it out.
It seems to me that sex although wonderful and important is best served as cream and strawberries on top of a loving relationship when it has been a long one, and love is the right area to examine when we are in a corner. Did not want to write a novel. email me privately if you need a bit of support. I'm no Carl Jung, but I have been there! All my love to you and yours in this difficult time.
Umm I've never been with a guy who had those issues. And in my opinion you should be in a relationship that doesn't bring out your fears and insecurities. If you trust and are comfortable in a relationship then no problem.
You bring up a very good point but what if one is more sexual y intimidating than the other!
Sexually intimidating like what? Meaning better looking? Whatever the case. If one is more-so than the other, then you work on it. Fear and insecurity should be something you discuss.
What I mean is I have been diagnosed with a terminal illness and I fear that I am not always satisfying her even though she says she is! How do you discuss something that is as sensitive as this, I know my wife does not want to say anything that may lesson who I am and what I was! But I sense dissatisfaction!
So you bring it up without it being too direct or specific. Ask open ended questions. Could it be how often? How long? General satisfaction during?
Figure that out first. Then ask specifically what she wants. I see no problem with that At least you identify that there may be a problem and you're looking for a solution.
I agree 100% with Cole...
mdawson don't be afraid to talk about it. take strength in the fact that she is with you, still loves you, and especially that she is still with you even when you were diagnosed with illness.
Sorry that you were diagnosed with a terminal illness, mdawson17 *HUGS*
pUMKIN HEAD YOU EVER THOUGHT THAT IT MIGHT KEEP THE FIRING BURNING (LOL)
Wow if youa re married I feel sorry for your spouse. I do hope that was a joke...a very bad joke but a joke nonetheless.

Is it wrong to flirt online (while married to someone else) with someone even if you have no intentiA lot of men go online to chat and flirt with women while their wife is in bed - most don't have any intention of meeting or going further. Is this wrong?

From experience I know how frustrating it is that my husband is the boss of our family and makes 95% of the choices we face....but I'm also thankful because I have enough to deal with as a SAHM and it's kind of a mental break for me...what do you think? Does there need to be a dictator or is there...

Perhaps more than just forgiving the person, would you still think of continuing with the relationship?

Would a sexless vacation/getaway with your mate/spouse frustrate you?For a lot of people there is an assumption when a couple takes a vacation or goes on a weekend getaway romance will fill the air and the flames of passion will burn nightly. Are you one of those people who thinks this way?
