My wife has rejected my sexual advances for so long I’ve given up even trying – The Sun

DEAR DEIDRE: MY wife has been turning down my sexual advances for so long I no longer even dare approach her for fear of more rejection.

We are both 52 and have been married for nearly 30 years. It’s hard to imagine now but we were happy once and had a good sex life. It all stopped four or five years ago.

At first I thought it was just a phase she was going through and didn’t pressure her. But she is just not interested in the physical side of our relationship any longer.

I have tried to talk to her in a caring way but all she says is: “Oh, not again.”

She accuses me of trying to make her feel guilty, which I am not.

I feel useless, very frustrated and angry. I don’t want to cheat but I do want a sex life.

DEIDRE SAYS: I do feel for you. You may not be trying to make your wife feel guilty but I suspect that is exactly how she does feel.

But she doesn’t know how to revive her interest in sex.

Tell your wife how much you love her and ask if she misses the sex you two used to enjoy together – unless she was acting for all those years.
