I just joined, and not sure exactly why other than to talk to anyone. I have been married just under 30 years. My wife says she loves me, but shows differently. There is no affection, intimacy, or physical touch of any kind from her. I try to flirt, kiss her face, kneck and she just laughs. I try to be silly and ask her to be my girlfriend. She just laughs. Never a response of any kind. When I try to touch her, she pulls away or says stop that tickles...what? You weren't ticklist in the past.. I love my wife so very much. I wish to be intimate with her but nothing seems to work. She only says it is hormones or lack of. Over the last few years about 3 times she has said she would go to the Doctor and see what can be done. She has never gone. Just recently I tried flirting and being goofy and told her I wanted to be frisky. She said "I am 60 years old". I said "I am too, but I am not dead". I told her "I adore my wife", she said "I adore my husband". "Then why don't you show it", she could only say "I don't know".
I just don't get it. She will not openly talk about why she feels this way, she only says I don't know. I am now getting very depressed and are very lonely. I work from home and she has been a stay at home mom since 2000. Kids are all gone, so she justs sits and watches TV all day, every day. I just wish for cuddling at night, hugs and kisses with the woman I love but it does not look like that will happen any longer. Don't want to leave, but just can't take this any more.
Not sure where to turn and I ended up here. I'm almost 48 years old, with my husband about 6 years, married less than 2 years. I have a 16 year old daughter that he adopted a year ago. We live like roommates, no intimacy, sleep in separate rooms, no "team work" at all. He says he loves me and would do anything for me, but those are just words....his actions say the otherwise. I don't love him...
