Using Conversation to Connect Intimately

 

In my marriage, I have been very guarded about sex–even talking about it. I just didn’t want to…at all! I especially didn’t want my husband to get any ideas that I was interested in doing anything, if we did talk about it. I found that I couldn’t even talk about anything that made him feel close to me, or he’d want to have sex. Something’s been different lately, though. My husband seems to have taken to heart the counsel to pull back on trying to “fix me” sexually. He has willingly agreed to not push for sex, while I work through some of my issues. It now feels safe for me to talk to him again, because I know it won’t lead to sex.

 

It’s quite strange, actually, to be able to talk with him now. He feels like a friend again. I feel like I have choices, instead of just shutting down. We’ve been doing some of the exercise you gave us where we share some of our thoughts and feelings with each other. It’s actually been nice. He listens. It’s strange. He’s seems interested, with no sexual expectations. Every time we talk now, it builds my trust in him. I feel safer with him now. There might be hope for us after all. {Continue Reading at Meridian}
