Re: HD vs. LD - Perception vs. Reality
Maybe LD's enjoy the honeymoon phase. That's just it though. It's a phase and it leaves us HD's high and dry. It's disappointing to say the least. I find I start pulling away emotionally when sex isn't happening. I feel like I live with a roommate. It's funny because my husband says the same thing, yet never attempts to up the sex. It leaves me taking the lack of sex very personally.

I do the same thing. It's hard to stay emotionally connected when the intimacy is lacking. I think what's hard for me, too, is the fact that I can tell she is actively avoiding other kinds of intimacy because it might lead to sex. I often feel like I'm the butler. It's not a great feeling, and it certainly doesn't do much for my feelings of being loved and desired. Also, I find myself worrying after sex, "How long am I going to be sidelined this time?
