I’d recently stopped replying to any emails that didn’t absolutely require a response, since the coach’s words were making my heart swoon.
After many years of marriage and ever-increasing responsibilities, Russ and I had fallen into a routine in our relationship that felt comfortable. Our time together seemed like just another item to check off our to-do lists – simply a part of our regular schedule, not a special adventure.
Sometimes that pesky thing called love gets in the way, though, and you’re not willing to throw in the towel.
If you’re getting the vibes that he finds you a snoozefest, let him go and get with someone who’d rather be with you than anywhere else.I glanced at my cellphone’s screen as the ringtone went off and was pleasantly surprised to see that my husband Russ was calling while he was still at work. “Remember how you told me that you were going to plan something for our next date?Hoping that he was calling to say “I love you,” I answered quickly. ” I knew I shouldn’t try to discuss this while Russ was at work, but a lingering frustration compelled me to push the issue. Ashley is very active in her church and is always willing to lend a helping hand to others. After she breaks up with a guy, she immediately begins looking for another one. I do not mean that she has been dating the same guy, but she has had boyfriends steadily since adolescence.Together for 11 years, married for 10, 6 year old child. He wouldn’t wear the ring, wouldn’t hold my hand or kiss me in public, wouldn’t talk to me at parties, was just a jerk, not a man. We would stand in front of the mirror, naked, and he would only look at his own body and say what a great body he’s got. And just out of boredom I joined an online dating site and started talking to a few people. He was interesting and showing a huge interest in me, in how I felt, etc. And when he stood behind me, put his arms around me and held me really strong and rubbed me for 10 minutes, I didn’t want this moment to end and almost cried. We’ve been seeing each other since then and started to want to see each other more and more. But I feel absolutely NO physical attraction any more. I agreed to give him a chance and promised to stop any contact with my ‘boyfriend’. I don’t want to go through a divorce because of the child but then, should I stay unhappy? It’s so frustrating, and when I talk to young people, or even people considering second marriage, I tell them to look at the person’s parents because that is what their husband or wife will most likely turn into.
