Today is Chinese Valentines day. They have a tradition that the man is supposed to give the woman he loves one hundred roses. This is a sign of their true love. This is my third Chinese Valentines and I’ve yet to see someone buy or receive even half as many roses as that.
I decided that today was a good excuse to try and inject some romance into our lives again. I made a three course meal for us to enjoy while sitting at a candle lit table. I bought my husband chocolates. He bought me some too. Nice surprise. We had a good meal and we talked somewhat. We even sat down to watch a movie together afterwards. All in all I’d say it was a moderate success. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t hoping for sex to be an end goal. But it doesn’t look like that is going to happen.
But, I’m going to keep trying. Yes, we are disconnected and sex is a major reason why. I’m hoping to find a way for us to reconnect in other ways and hopefully the sex will follow. I’m trying this route first because the whole ‘lets talk about it’ is getting old.
