  • The comment would've scared the crap out of me. I take things literally and that would tell me that he's addicted to sex, doesn't matter if it's with me, or the hooker on the corner, he needs his fix, any fix. I'm hoping for your sake he didn't mean it like that, but I don't know your man's personality to know if he has that kind of sense of humor but if you're concerned then I think you know that it's not something he'd normally say. In fairness, if they're going to cheat, they're going to cheat, nothing you can do to stop it, only thing you could change is your marital statis.

  • I guess I would have had to hear him say it, I mean what his tone was when he said it.

  • It would depend on the tone of voice and if he was just being funny. If it were my husband, I would say I would not be mad, because that is his type of personality.

  • his tone to me was kinda like it was stupid for me to think he was addicted to me

  • I think he was just being honest.

  • Was he just being a smarta**?

    Answer by JD08 at 5:11 PM on Jan. 10, 2009

  • I guess you wanted to hear he was addicted to you..your love.
    I think it would upset me to hear "addicted to sex" because that takes the you out of it.

    I guess if he said addicted to sex with you it would be ok.

    Hope this helps.

  • I wouldn't have taken it well. It would have hurt my feelings. I got the impression once that my husband was using sex as a stress buster, rather than an act of expressing love. Sure, we all can use a stress reducer and sex does that but if that's why you have it, the person is no more than a vibrator or your own hand.

  • He was very impersonal and thoughtless. I hope it was just a guy thing.

  • ok ill share how i viewed his reply...... To me him saying "i'm addicted to sex" even if he was "addicted to sex" before me thats fine but he is with me and only me (to my knowledge) but if hes just addicted to sex in my mind he would have sex with ANYONE reguardless of being with me, so even if he is addicted to sex in general if he is only and would only have sex with me then right now its me hes addicted to and yes i agree with the one who said if he had said he was addicted to sex with me then that would have been different and the other thing that bothered me was that i was clearly trying to be cute by saying "awwwww am i your drug" and he just said that like i was stupid to think that he was addicted to me so now my thought is what if another chick tries to get him to have sex or if he is so addicted to sex and i say no a few times in a row (for ny reason) is he going to go else where to find it?
