How long can you go without any sexual contact before you start to come unglued and become cross?
LL'ers, is there a time frame that this happens or do you begin to feel uncomfortable at a certain point?
Is your SO aware of the time frame and do they make any "pre-emptive" strikes to ward of the crabbiness?
My answers: (I will post them here, instead of replying in a separate thread, b/c of this cursed format)
I can go 3 days and then start to feel edgy. After a week goes by, I start to get crabby with my spouse and kids. After two weeks goes by, I admit to being unbearable. The funny thing is, after 2 weeks I start to get used to it and it doesn't bother me as much.
Yes, my dh is well aware of the 3 day time frame (he is the one, in fact, who brought it to my attention) but I don't think that he forces himself to do anything differently--if he feels like sex, we have it and if he doesn't, we don't.
Oh, and one more thing....this question is not "How long do you normally go before you let your crabbiness show" but how long before you feel that edginess start to creep in, regardless of whether your SO knows about it or not.
Come on everybody, I want to hear your answers!
