Lonely Stay At Home Mom
I know my husband loves me. I just think he doesn't know how to show it. I grew up with an unaffectionate mother and always have been an affectionate and very demonstrative person. But my husband and I seem to be mismatched. I would wager that 80% of the time he only touches me when he wants sex. Most of the time I think he's afraid that if he does touch me I will want sex and he isn't interested or is too tired. I know he has a low sex drive and always has but my needs are mostly emotional and could be easily met by a warm embrace or gentle touch. I have told him this in the past but think that maybe I need to say something again. Shouldn't this come natural to a a person in love? He has no trouble being affectionate and loving to our kids, it's just me. As if I somehow don't need it or something.
