Im looking for advice to help me and DF connect on an emotional level which will help me connect on a sexual level for him. In another post i responded
when you have small children who demand attention and physical touch daily sometimes you run out of your need for physical touch. Before kids i was the needy one who needed reassurance with hugs and physical touch. Now i get alot of the physical affection that i so needed daily from my son. I guess maybe its hard to show and give the affection when your filled up. Does that make any sense? In my situation by the end of some days i want the attention and conversation but i just dont want the physical touch. Ive been poked prodded and touched all day and as a person having your personal space being invaded all day it just gets to be to much sometimes. Maybe im a wierdo !!
You are NOT a wierdo!! That is a perfectly acceptable and very common feeling for a lot of mothers of young children. The only thing is, you have to view the touch of your husband as separate, different and very important for the health of the relationship. But I know it ain't easy.
I guess what im asking for is help to achieve this? Any advice or words of wisdom are much appreciated.
