Nothing to serious, just regrouping myself to make good decisions when I feel a desire for EN's to be met. My wife has responded well to receiving my affection better, hugging me back when I hug her, etc. I feel good when I hug/kiss her so I do it frequently. I still struggle with the lack of initiated affection, SF, etc on her part. I know I can't control her. I know I have a tendency to NOT ask for things from my wife for whatever reasons. We've had perfectly pleasant if not wonderful days, don't get me wrong. Played Scrabble till late last night and we had a great time(she won!). There is this lingering feeling however inside me that is related to her "not needing" or "desiring" affection or SF as much as I do. I would describe it as it not really occurring to her. The more I initiate affection, the more she doesn't have to if that makes sense. Is that good? Bad? Ideas on how to ask her for this EN?
