I think it’s fair to say I have a good wife. Apart from her taking good care of the kids, she still finds a way to make our house feel like a home. I see all she does and truly appreciate it, but something is just missing. The connection isn’t just there anymore and it looks like we’ve lost touch on just about everything; sex, communication, fun etc.
To say our sex life isn’t active would be a lie, but having sex with her has now become a perfunctory duty. And I can sense she feels the same way.
No matter how much we try to make love, there’s just this aura of disinterest between us that makes everything seem like a routine. There’s no spark, there’s no fire, there’s no passion; it just feels drab. So these days, I secretly go to the bathroom to jerk off because I miss ‘it’. I know it looks bad but please don’t judge. The problem now is that our poor attempt at intimacy has drawn us apart and I have no friends to talk to. The few ones I used to have aren’t so close anymore because I invested too much time in my family.
Keeping the wife happy was too demanding so I ended up neglecting my friends. Now that I have none, I really feel lonely and there’s no one to hang out with or share my problems with. I can’t just help but to ask if it’s her fault or if something is actually wrong with me? Anyone out there who have walked in these shoes before?
