"I'd like to have sex with you at least every other day."

What would be his response??

"Who are you, and what have you done with my wife?"

Probably the same thing but he would be pretty happy.

My dh is 49 and if I would have said that anytime other than the last year, his eyes would have lit up like Christmas trees. Also, when we were in our 20s, I wouldn't have needed to say that because that's pretty much what we did.

Now, in the past year, we aren't even CLOSE to that and my dh (who used to want it daily if he could get it) doesn't initiate it nearly as much. It's a testosterone thing, but it still makes him sad. Still, if I would say that I think his response would be "Sure!" (but inside he would be thinking "yeah right".

It would be a clever response I am sure . We are not scheduled/planner people in any way/area in our lives/family so that comment would be really out of left field. It would come across negatively/demanding whether it was sex, making dinner, etc., but that's just because we don't communicate that way.

Well, I said something very similar to my exH (except it was to ask if he could be happy if we had sex every day) and he told me it wasn't enough to *really* make him happy as he would still want it more...

Wonder why I felt there was no pleasing that man.

I think he'd ask if we could start immediately. We've been living apart for 6 months while we are selling this house and we've seen each other 3 times since September.

Mine would think I wanted to start an argument. We have been together for 10 years now & he just turned 40. We have gone for months at a time without being intimate. It has worsened in the past 5 years. It's sad & I have even gone so far as to threaten an affair just to feel "loved" & "sexy". I have done just about everything imaginable to jump start our sex life & have found it to be a lost cause. I feel more like a roommate than I do a wife.

Tried it. Gave up. He has serious sleep apneoa, cpap machine and low testosterone. He can take meds but it will most likely give him a heart attack.
*weighs hands* death or sex?
I choose to find other things to fill the empty spaces with (no pun intended) and get on with life.
If we 'get it together' more than once in two months, I'm a happy girl these days!

I'm three weeks postpartum. He'd be thrilled to start things back up again.

However, the thought makes me want to cross my legs in defense. I'm not quite ready to hop back on that horse. Poor man

That's really sad

Maybe your DH needs to see a doctor or a psychologist. Seriously

Why? What have I done wrong?
We have been together for a little over 2 years so since we are pretty much newlyweds twice a day is about the average here except for last month, of course, because I was postpartum.
I held back 28 days but I couldn't hold off any more.

Right now he'd look at me like I was crazy. (9 days after csection)

On a normal day he would probably run screaming in the other direction! After fertility struggles he is tired of scheduled sex!

I agree with NaniwebbEMT - after infertility struggles and scheduled sex, it is too mechanical.

Yeah sure, right....come to bed earlier and then we'll see. He also has a low testosterone and just isn't into it as I am. We've also gone months. I don't think he misses it.

He won't go to consuling either. He thinks nothing is wrong....I think my weight is also an issue. He feels I'm not heathly and overweight, while he does workout, almost daily, because he's a refferee for basketball in the evenings and on weekends. I'm trying but it's a slow process.

Unfortunately by the time he gets in after working 18 hours days he collapses out of sheer exhaustion. Then there is that whole being on the other side of the world thing too. LoL

We are in our mid thirties and frequency has definitely declined but not due to interest.
