Relationship Issues: My Husband Won't Date Me or Do Any Romantic Gestures (What Do You Think?) by Marina Smith
Rejection hurts. We have all been rejected at different stages in our lives, but the worst kind of rejection, I think, is when those closest to us who we love and who love us in return turn you down. It leaves an open and unhealing wound that was brought on for no reason.
My husband and I have been married over two years, and he won't make an effort to take me on a date. I don't get flowers "just because" or any sweet little gestures to show me I am being thought of. On Valentine’s Day, I get ignored (it was our first official date four-plus years ago).
When confronted, he claims he wants to date me, he is just thinking of what to do. In the past I would come up with ideas and tell him we are going on a date – a whole three times a year (our lives are insanely busy and I was grateful for what time we could get). Now I have asked him to be proactive and a bit more involved, so we haven't been on a date since July.
I have addressed our lack of time spent together four more times since then and each time there was some sort of explanation. I am ready to give up. Some people just don't go on dates? We both are busy and tired. After all, I should just be grateful he is involved with the kids and works around the house. Right?
