In Love But Need To Be TouchedI've been married for 30 years and by all accounts a great family and marriage.
I have always been a physical person...sensuality and tactile experiences is a very legitimate part of our heart soul and minds.
We stopped having sex five years ago. We have gone to therapists galore and many couples workshops.
I finally made the decision that I can't change her. She is a good person and continues to be a great mother and partner. To fulfill my hunger...I decided to find someone who had the mirror image of relationship dynamics.
I was patient and took my-time looking, chatting and lunch dates... until I found the woman with the same mutual interests and goals. The key rule is that our families (including our spouses) come first...from there we have built a great friendship with benefits relationship...I t has been fantastic and my relationship with my wife has really improved (still not physical) with me participating in the "here now" of the family.
