I was thinking some more about Mr. Newlywed’s Story. Mr. Newlywed says he’s happy. In his words, “I love my wife. We will be together forever, have a house and kids and be very happy.” He does not say he’s miserable or even unhappy, although he makes it clear that sexually he’s not at all satisfied.
I know other people who would say the same of their marriage and/or LTR. They are happy in every way but sexually. When people tell me this stuff, I figure it’s something they want to get off their chests. Not something they want probed or analyzed or judged (otherwise they wouldn’t be telling me).
Anyway, there are lots of people out there in LTRs and marriages who love their partners but who aren’t satisfied with their sex lives. AND, there are also plenty of single people who aren’t satisfied with their sex lives (like just about every single woman I know). Just in case you’re curious, it’s been exactly 5 weeks since I’ve had sex. Way too long.
I’m not separating people into groups this time. Not for this question. Not today. This is a just a straight-forward poll.
