How lack of affection affects a man?
I've been married for 13 years.
My wife has never expressed verbal or shown physical attraction to me.
We have sex and the fact that we do, is how I figure she must be attracted to me.
I am and have always been affectionate to her.
I have always told her how beautiful and sexy she is.
She simply doesn't do the same or anything close to that at all for me.
She says it as a result of her up bringing.
I was a confident guy, comfortable in my own skin.
That confidence is long gone.
I struggle to see how after 13 years she hasn't even slipped up once and told me anything.
Can she really be attracted to me or love me? Any help please.
Am I the only man who's experienced this?
