It took one post for the "love languages" to be suggested.
My advice to you is to get your confidence back. Stop relying on her for your happiness. Pick back up the hobby that you gave up to spend more time at home. Hit the gym, start running. Stop chasing, take your control happiness back. Determine what type of affection/Sexual fulfillment you expect in the marriage. Once you've figured out what your needs are, inform your wife. Don't pout or yell when you talk to your wife about it. Don't argue about why you need it. Just let her know your expectations. As for her needs, let her know you would love her to express to you her needs and that you will make every effort to meet them. Let her know that you aren't a mind reader so "I don't know" does not help you and you won't play guessing names. Good luck.
