Okay, first off, no abuse please. I find men are quite touchy about when a man complains about this, under the impression that the said man is 'ungrateful', or 'has something wrong with him'. So…Continue
"This.... Even as a young guy i've had some periods of low libido, even to the point of not wanting to have sex at all. For me the reason was pure stress..... Stress about other things, or stress about the relationship itself. Please don't…"
"I'm glad I found this thread. I've been dating my GF for nearly three years. I'm one lucky guy She's absolutely terrific. We live together, best friends, you name it. I think she's beautiful and sexy and I could easily…"
"This does not sound good!
Of course, go ahead and talk with her, as others very well suggested! If you two manage to get some comunication on the matter, I'm sure you can have a much better sex life.
3 years is a big relationship and not having…"
"My 2 pence:
I had a similar situation with my ex-girlfriend. She was gorgeous and we were both into eachother, both physically fit and had plenty of opportunity. It just didn't happen - for quite a while.
We eventually put it down…"
"Kinda hoping the meat-as-libido-suppressant thing is true. I'm very carnivorous, and the wife can barely satiate me as it is ... I rather like the idea that this is me with my libido 'suppressed'. Heh.
"Lack of drive could be a result of diet. Less meat, more veggies and fruit, and you might see a difference.
Also, if you look at porn, stop. I don't think I had an addiction, but I gave up looking at porn at my wife's…"
"I agree with most of the things said. The macho man talk you have heard most of your life has led to you thinking there is something wrong.. which might be the case or it could be something normal such as when the new wears off passion is not self…"
"I agree with Allen.
My take is as follows.
Congratulations on being with her for three years. Your hormones are probably changing to more of a married state. You need to talk to her about what is going on. Be clear that this is not…"
"Talk to her about what's going on or you will both just be frustrated. In my own experience, stress at work, lack of sleep (Why am up right now? This is the last thread I am commenting on...), and lack of working out regularly usually…"
"No abuse from me; totally empathize with your situation.
Sometimes many physical things that are supposed to be pleasurable just annoy the hell of out me; eating and sex included. It's usually a sign some I'm stressed/freaked out…"
"Umm, sounds to me like you're not dating her, you're married to her. Lol, trust me man, we all get there eventually. Depending on her, and the timing you bring it up, as others have said, talking things through, changing things up, etc.…"
""You find a church that isn't like that. Find a church that has a large population of men who seem to be active, and there voluntarily ... rather than because their wife told them to."
Makes sense to me!"
""Some say it's become very domesticated where women feel welcomed and valued and men feel ill at ease in such an emotion and sentiment filled space."
Well that's fucking weird. I thought one of the main purposes of church…"
"You make an excellent point about Mark Driscoll.
I always enjoyed him in small doses and from a distance. I don't think I could have attended Mars Hill.
But he was a man that spoke like a man to men.
This is how Paul spoke. (I'll…"
"That is a gross oversimplification. The amygdala is associated with more than just fear. It is associated with decision-making, including the processing of emotion and memory. Not only 'fear', but processing all emotion…"
