Decided to put his into a different thread.
My spouse and I have intimacy issues, of the sort that we are not intimate at all. He's the survivor and I think contrary to what is more common; in our case it's me who doesn't want to be intimate any more.
I feel like all my energy is going into managing daily life, it's sucked up by remaining in a place and relationship I don't want to be in. It's drained by continuing with a business-as-usual attitude that blinds out any issues.
When I'm honest to myself I do know that me not wanting to be intimate is just the reaction to all this. I can keep pretending that everything's all right, but there's an end to everything.
Has anyone experienced this? How do you deal with the lack of intimacy?
