    • Is it just me, or do many men tend to not take the initiative or the time as they get older?...my hub is perfectly happy being by himself a lot of the time..is that normal?

    • Hi Marya, it is ok that your hubby wants alone time, with the economy and the struggles that men today have burden on their shoulders to try to provide for their families, it does something to them and they do need that time to themselves as my hubby puts it, he has to go sit in his corner chair and take his brain out of his head just to get some relief from a hard day of work. We as women need to remember even though men are labled as the stronger vessel, we woman carry them in so many ways spiritually, mentally as well as physically and even though they know we can handle a lot more than they can they will never say it (its an ego thing),but they need us and we need them, we all are entitled to our own space from time to time in a marriage, I give my hubby his and he mine so don’t take it as though he has grown tired of you or the relationship so to speak he just may have a lot of things going on mentally that he hasn’t shared with you yet, give him his time and space. And when you see and opened opportunity ask him if there is anything he’d like to share or talk about that he hasn’t share with you. God Bless.happyheart

    • It is so hard to get hub to open up, as he is an introverted person..and he does carry a lot of burden, and I do understand.

      It is hard because the only time he really feels relaxed is the weekend, and again I understand, but he is just a really unapproachable person, and it is hard.

      Thanks Annie and Neicy for your feedback!

      heart

    • [Link Removed], I hope you can find a way to get him to relax more and be more open to you, can you try a method of giving him a nice massage and light some candles and begin to talk with him, you know something on that level.happy

    • I probably need more alone time than my hubz does. Anyone that works in retail or a service industry would understand the need to be alone and quiet. My hubz is fine with that. He is happy when I am close even tho we may not be talking. Thankfully he gets it!!!!

      Mary as for your hubz maybe you could just offer to be fun n games on the weekends with him. And after a few of these with you not placing (real or imagined) expectations he will relax a bit more and open up on his own.

      Neicy is right when she said men feel the burdens of the world but because they are not like women who will share they feel like they alone carry it. I read in this one book that men don’t like it when women have to help with the financial needs.  

      That was where I always went wrong.... in my mind I thought I was being helpful to my family by doing what I could to provide. And even tho my hubz never said anything it really did bother him that I FELT the need to help.  

      Sigh..... men......

    • Marya, are you sure we‘re not married to the same guy??? Sounds just exactly like my husband.

      And yep, I’m pretty sure my hubby is tired of me.  Last week he changed my phone number and forgot to buy me yogurt.  LOL!  I told him if he wants me to leave he should just tell me instead of making my life miserable.

    • I’ve been dumped so no man in my life right now while I wait for the divorce to conclude. I knew for a fact the X had grown tired of me, but it’s his nature to grow tired and lose his interest in things, as well as people. I learned that over the years. The lower portion of the property is a bone yard of his lost interests.  

      Mary, you have expressed feelings of security with your husband so I’d think maybe he’s worried or a little depressed. Maybe you can think of something nice for you and he to do together (that he has an interest in also). If maybe it’s money don’t make it expensive, just fun for both of you. Maybe a nice dinner at home and dancing to your old favorite music?

    • Hubby and I may not be a loving, close, passionate couple but I have never felt that he is getting tired of me the 15 years we have been married. He does enjoy his alone time and so do I. I know my hubbys not big on having conversations so I leave well enough alone and if he wants to talk he will come to me and I will listen. But our alone time is wonderful...lolhappy

      Seriously I know he still truly loves me.

    • Hello,  don’t you Ladies even think that just because the X is who he is that I don’t know his method is not what All men think, feel, do, believe. When a man loves a woman they do not lose interest, but they may withdraw sometimes for their own sake of dealing with life, their losses (including their perceived losses).

    • Thank you Ladies!!...well, as it turns out, hub is the kind of man that needs decompression time after work...which I know...and baseball is on right now, not to mention ALOT going on at work, and his best buddy texts him constantly, and he is always doing some type of repair work in our house, so you couple that all together and yes, I guess there is little time left for me during the week!

      but, I am going to make the most of the weekends, and we leave for a weekend away on May 20..whew!!happy

    • My hubby has his routine when he gets off of work. Usually the amount of time spent together depends on how his day went. It’s not that he is tired of me but he’s not the type to put on a superficial show when he’s in a grumpy foul mood and so we wait until he’s ready to talk. As far as sex goes, there hardly seems to be any time or energy, we have to make dates!
