Thanks for returning to the forum. I wish you well on your journey. You may wish to review posts by xisummit, as he seems to have attained the state of acceptance to which you aspire.

When you see it coming, duck!

Welcome back.

I've been trying to think of anything worthwhile to say, but can only think of: Good luck!

Hi husband. As they already said, sounds like you're delving into similar territory as I've chosen to be in. Feel free to search for my posts for more details.

Thanks for responding to my post, I know you've been around this board quite a while.

Never - one of those words we should probably use very litlle, but not never!

It's very interesting, if you can reach a place of acceptance, and share your journey about that here, please do.

I'm not saying anything to disturb you from your path, and your description of your W's self-absorption and lack of empathy rang some bells.

I must say, being on the receiving end of such phrasing would irk me because it attempts to put an "us" spin on what is really a "me" agenda. I would find it disingenuous and subtly manipulative. I'd much rather my partner come to me and simply tell me he's unhappy with the amount of sex we're having.
