  • We try to keep our relationship fun.. Like going out every so often without the children and enjoying a night out.. or renting a movie and putting the kids to bed a little earlier than normal and staying up together.

  • Thats not a problem I've really ever had. The Navy takes him away enough that when he's home he wants to be with me and the kids.

  • Try finding a hobby, such as a cooking class or ballroom dancing. Just anything that you would both be interested in..

  • Cook him his favorite meal, give him "treats", massage his shoulders, seduce him!!

  • U could show interest in what he's watching . Cuddleup w/ him & ask if he wants any company . Ask if he's comfy , maybe fix him a snack (popcorn) .

  • Then watch TV with him.
    Just let him know how it makes you feel when he doesn't want to do anything with you. Either he'll get it or he won't, but talking is the first step.

  • I am married to an intravert --and I'm an extravert. So, when I need more company than my husband can manage to supply in a day, I find other people. I have a lot of friends, and am involved in a number of organizations, including volunteer work, to get my fill of people in a day.

    So... because I leave my hubby alone a lot, he often wants more of my time than I have available in any given week. This works out well because it means he's seeking me out, rather than me nagging him for more attention than he can give me.

  • Date night ( at least once a month)! My kids had a set bedtime (8 pm), we could then cuddle on the couch and watch a movie or whatever. I also enjoy helping him with the yard work.

  • I can't really complain... He is super sweet! brings me coffee to bed every morning, spend time with us................... Maybe if I really think hard, I should make more effort to blend with his interest (golf, mining articlesm politics....puaj)... Oh well.... I will try..............
