Writing this after the best sex I’ve had in years.
Want to keep this short. Quick background: 6 years of marriage, bedroom activity on life support.
Her hamster starts doing cartwheels this morning before I go to work, on a topic we’ve been over a million times. She’s trying to make her problem into my problem. Beta me would have done anything she wanted to help her feel better. But today, I turned the corner, I had had it. I placed that hamster right in the microwave. Stayed calm, explained we’d been over this and I won’t be discussing it further, and that I was insulted by her insistent, accusatory tone. Promptly left for work.
All day, calls, texts... followed the rule, did not engage.
By the time I returned home she had realized that I wasn’t going to be a part of her crazy any more. We talked, I didn’t budge. Ended with her feeling sheepish.
Tonight, sex was possibly better than it ever has been. She initiated, pleased me the way I like, went all out...
I feel respected, and have restored the dignity I have been slowly losing all these years.
TRP works people. It really works.
