She should know by now, and it will become more clear daily as I begin to approach her for sex.


For the last 2 days I've asked her "Are you planning to make love to your husband?", knowing what the answer would be both times.

<< You have made compromises for her but has she for you? >>


For LLs, anytime they are making love could be a compromise.

Wow, best of luck to you!


I know first hand how sometimes the short term "gain" of "dropping the subject" can be so appealing......no fights, not getting pushed away in bed, that great feeling of your partner actually coming on to you!!


In the end it always wears us out though, I haven't COMPLETELy stopped initiating, but really darn close.
