Resisting or Not Initiating Casual Affection
Your husband loves you and contrary to how men are often portrayed on the big screen, they want to show and be shown attraction in ways other than just sex. Kisses on the forehead, holding your hand, rubbing your back, or giving you a hug are some examples of these smaller acts of affection. But when you appear uninterested in or never initiate those more casual acts of intimacy, it can make your husband feel unattractive and worthless, especially if you showed him these forms of affection before. Yes, most men like to lead out in a relationship, but this doesn’t mean they want to dominate it. It destroys their confidence when they’re the one initiating every romantic gesture, while their partner puts in little or no effort.
