Having said that, my wife has put on around 40-50 pounds since we got married four years ago. To make things clear, she hasn't had a baby and she is only 27. She simply has gone into "I know that my man isn't going anywhere, so I can let go" mode. The problem is that she is now not my "type" anymore in terms of body type. I have absolutely no desire to see her naked and I have pretty much stopped initiating sex. We still have sex regularly, but she is almost always the one that initiates it. She is starting to catch on that I am not initiating sex anymore, so she is questioning me as to whether I think she is sexy or not, etc. I know that women have a need to be desired, and I would like nothing more than to satisfy this need. However, I am not a good actor/liar and whenever I try to initiate sex to make her happy (feel desired)

  • 5 Signs that You Shouldn't Move in Together

    You make a special effort to clean the house before he comes over. Are you planning to make a special effort every day of your life? Are you cleaning the house for your benefit or because you don't think he would be pleased by the way your house looks in its normal state? While you might be able to pull it off a couple of times a week, pretending to be someone you're not is a lot harder on a day to day basis.

  • She's Not Over Him: How to Spot the Warning Signs

    There's Too Much Fiona Apple on Her Ipod

    Pay attention to the lyrics of your girl's music selections. Women tend to speak through their music more than men. Sometimes that's their way of handling the emotions they can't seem to vocalize. This is excellent if she's just downloaded the new Colbie Callat but consider it a warning sign if her music is heavy handed in the broken heart department. Even the angrier toned Pink albums can be a sign she's still working through some relationship issues. If she goes old school and breaks out Alanis Morrisette, put yourself on red alert.

Whether it be pictures, letters, tickets to games and movies we've been to, or just little gizmos and gadgets that make me think of him, I have saved many things. It's so special to look back on now- and of course every memory makes me fall in love all over again.
