Let's make outside as much like inside as possible only with the added benefit of this makeshift structure collapsing at any time and/or the tangle of wires setting on fire.

Nothin says romantic like nice dates that coincidentally end up at a fuckpad with some clear expectations of repayment.

I found the dude in the OP's reddit account:

quote:

Has he done romantic activities in the past? Candle light dinner? Surprise flowers? Etc.
In other words, has he always been like this or is it a recent development (past few years)?

EDIT: I'm just going to go ahead and take a wild stab at my guess . You've been a couple for six years, I'm guessing that he did do little things for you at one point. Maybe you came home to a candle lit dinner or perhaps he'd surprise you with flowers. Who knows. The point is, he did stuff.

At our core, people are animals, and often times men more so than women. If you reward a dog with a treat, they'll continue that behavior. You give it a squirt from the bottle, and they'll be discouraged from repeating a behavior. It's simple carrot and stick psychology. The problem that guys can run into is that sometimes we go ahead and plan a romantic gesture, and...we don't get a treat, or at least not the treat we were hoping for. Yeah, I'm talking about sex.

Just to be clear about things (for both genders), men do not DESERVE sex because they bought you a bouquet of grocery store flowers. I can't state that clearly enough, men aren't entitled to sex just because they do something nice.
In spite of that, we HOPE for sex as an end result. When we're rewarded with hugs and kisses and smiles and jumping up and down and squealing about how amazing we are...but not sex...it can become discouraging. In complex terms, we're attempting to initiate a grand seduction and grow frustrated with repeated failure. In simpler terms, we didn't get a carrot.

Over time, this can become a pattern and the value of romantic gestures lowers in our mind until we just stop doing it all together. We get lazy because there's no pay off.
It's not OK. It's not acceptable, but it's hopefully somewhat understandable.

Try letting your husband know that you want him to put more effort into being romantic and that you appreciate the gestures and explain how you show that (love languages, remember). Ask him to step it up. On your end, try remembering HIS love language and making more of an effort to reward him in a way that's meaningful to him.

I don't think you get the story. She was out doing romantic stuff with one guy, then ditched him to have sex with a homeless man in his shanty.
