Have you tried The Love Dare?  It is nice because it is something you can do on your own without him even knowing and as it changes you he will most likely change without even knowing he is doing it. 

Quoting RobynS:

Thanks. I've tried to fix it, but it takes two and he just doesn't have relationship skills at ALL. He wants to ignore the problem and hope it goes away. *sigh*

Quoting countrygirlkat:

I am sorry to hear that.  Hugs.  I hpe things get better for you.

Quoting RobynS:

we don't really do any of those things together any more. We are SO far apart. :/

Quoting LindaClement:

I actually don't really agree with the items the 'expert' picked out as the key issues.

I don't think whether or not you fantasize about others is related to intimacy, anymore than how many times a week you're having at it... there are far more important aspects of mutual vulnerability and trust than gettin' it on, and who you're thinking about when you think about it.

How much you laugh together is a personality type issue --again, not what I think of as intimacy.

This is all kind of surfacy stuff, I don't think touches what real intimacy involves.

I agree.

I haven't heard of that one, but I've tried just about everything else. I can't imagine anything that would make him communicate with me. After all these years, he is still like a deer in headlights when I try to have a real conversation with him. :( Thank you, though--I'll look into it.
