You thought you were pleasing your partner until you are confronted with, “Can we talk?” Without a sliver of empathy for your partner’s sexual needs, your defenses spring up. Your bruised ego forces you to withdraw, and you fall into a sex drought. You thought you were pleasing your partner.
What Should You Do?
Offer to schedule conversations about physical intimacy to avoid being blindsided by the weighty topic. Agree that the person receiving the information will actively listen without rebuttals or promises to improve. Armed with a newfound knowledge of your partner’s desires and a healthy anticipation of waiting for the conversation, you will be eager to put what you have learned into action.
