Hi..I'm not sure if this is the place to post this, but it seems to be very friendly and supportive and that's what I need right now...
Here's the deal: I will be married for 2 years in May. I have been w/ my husband for quite a while before this. I notice that lately ( last month or so), he seems less than, um.."interested" in me.
I've been going to the gym more, feel better about myself...he has said that he thinks that's great and he's supportive of my new healthier lifestyle, but we just dont' seem to talk anymore. It's rather depressing. He flirts and such, but it never goes beyond that. He is makin' the move to go from working for "the man" to working as a partner with another person. They are spending time getting everything in order before he actually quits his current job. He knows that this is cool w/ me and that I think it's a great idea..so there's no resentment there...
Could it be just because he's so preoccupied with all this? He is the kind of person that when he gets something on his brain that's all he really does for awhile..he's a computer networking engineer, and he takes a lot of certification tests, when he sets the date to take on, he's full tilt until he takes it.
See, I think I know what the issue is, but I'm not sure. I figure that there are so many people on this site that have had more and different experiences than I have that someone may be able to offer an encouraging word....
Also, I am sorry for introducing myself w/ such a personal post, but I have been reading all about you for so long that it feels comfortable to me anyway.
Me: I am 27 yrs old, I'm an optician
from Wisconsin, I'm married w/ a cat and a guinea pig. I am not ready for kids yet...I'm stepping towards my oven, but it's not preheating and I"m not ready to put a bun in it yet...I'm generally a happy person, but I am bipolar, so sometimes my mental antennae are out of whack. I like to write, draw, knit, read, learn new things and work out.
Currently my "diet" of choice is calorie counting. I just started it but it's working out a lot easier than I thought it would!
If any one thinks i have over stepped my bounds here, just let me know, I promise I will not be offended or upset since I'm the one who put myself out there.
