Being The Girlfriend I Once Was
Being The Girlfriend I Once Was
12/12/2019

 

My husband and I have been married almost 20 years, and most of that time I have treated him like a boyfriend.  However, recently, I just got lazy when it came to "feeding" him.  I just ignored his needs and withdrew.  But when he said the words "I don't get to touch you anymore," I got really sad.  I didn't say anything at that moment.

The next day, I was listening to you and heard a few callers who were losing their marriages because of the same thing I was doing.  I had a complete wake-up call from listening and as soon as he got home that evening, I kissed him and turned on the charm.  We were having fun just hanging out when he said, "why are you being so nice?"  I explained everything (even that you had inspired me to not deprive him of my attention), and I apologized.  I don't know what was going on with me, because since I have turned "it" back on, I've been having a lot of fun! Why was I depriving myself of this time with him?  Thank you for being that voice of reason when I start to go off the right path.
