  • He won't snog me or have sex with me

    Okay, well we are in the first 6 months of our relationship.
    We are both in our early 30s.
    Both previously had long term relationships which involved sex
    He was single 5 years before we got together.
    He says he has performance anxiety after losing his erection during 2 drunk one night stands after his ex.
    So I realised that area may take some time and patience etc.
    What I don't get is that in 6 months he has kissed me with a bit of tongue briefly FOUR times all pretty much verbally requested by me.
    He says he loves me but he doesnt ever look at me like he loves me, wants me or feels passionately for me.
    He doesn't hold me in a passionate way.
    We hold hands and cuddle but there is never anything passionate or sexual.
    When we kiss it's just a peck.
    It's like we are 2 best friends.
    I've tried all sorts to engage him in just a passionate kiss and it's like he really doesn't want it.
    We've spoken about it and he says he doesnt really think about us having sex or kissing passionately and it's not something he enjoys.
    He says he is attracted to me and I'm not the problem.
    Everything else is great but what the hell?
    It's killing me and not because I want sex but because he doesnt have passion for me in any way whatsoever.
    We have no physical intimacy and I feel like I'm just quietly drifting from him because I feel unwanted.
    Aren't these supposed to be problems after the honeymoon period???
    When does mine even start?

    Tell him that you need passion and intimacy and that while he is fine without it , you aren’t.
    Agree that it’s a major incompatibility and that while everything else is great , you can’t overlook it and therefore need to part ways to give both of you a chance at being with someone compatible.

    Dont suggest or agree to remain friends as that’s all you are now anyway.

      I've told him, he said that he's going to try to get on my 'wave length' but I have to give him a little bit of time because he doesnt want to suddenly behave that way because I've brought it up but because he wants it to be natural.
      I've seen him once since and he made an effort to give me kisses more, just packs.
      I think I'm just slowly digesting that we are incompatible there and it just won't work

        We even sleep naked next to each other and theres no touching or caressing. Sometimes he has an erection but he won't let me touch and if he does it's brief and like he's just waiting for it to stop.

          But there is nothing natural about him “trying” to get on your “wavelength”

          Has he sought counselling and would he be willing to?
          Its not normal to not even want to kiss passionately, perhaps he fears kissing will lead to more.
          Have you tried kissing him in public where it can’t possibly lead to sex?
          Does he even cuddle you?

            I know
            He does cuddle me, we cuddle often and hold hands.
            We cuddle naked in bed but it's a very non sexual cuddle.
            I've reassured him quite many times that kissing doesn't have to lead anywhere.
            He said it's not something he's ever really done apart from during sex.
            He said he used to have passionate kisses when he was younger but it's just not something he does anymore and doesn't think about doing or really enjoys.
            He suggested trying it when drunk, we did...He said he was starting to get into it but his mind took over and killed it.
            That was recent and snog number 4 in 6 months.
            He snogged me briefly 2nd and 3rd date and once the first night I stayed over....then nothing for month till I broke down crying because I felt like he didn't want me.
            The night we did the 'I love you' he avoided snogging me then, I couldn't sleep afterwards I went downstairs and just cried.
            Why can't he kiss me like he loves me??
            I've suggested it but I don't think it's anything he's willing to consider for a long while and i dont know how long i can go on like this, I had no self esteem to begin with. I'm just crying all the time whenever I've got time to think about it.

              Well sounds like he might just be asexual.
              Don’t take it personally, instead leave and be with someone who speaks the same love language as you.

              You have already given him several months to change and nothing has changed.
              Dont waste anymore time on him.
              You deserve to have a good relationship including the physical.

                I agree with Maggie.
                You'll go insane if you continue this relationship.
                His behavior indicates he's not ever going to get even close to your wave length.

                Save yourself the frustration and find a boyfriend who shares your need for intimacy.

                  Okay, well we are in the first 6 months of our relationship.
                  Why are you even trying with this dud. It's been six short months and you've already learned that you're not happy. Quit trying with him for goodness sakes... you're just wasting yours and his time.
