Our expert says:
I can certainly understand where your distress is coming from. There seems to be a communication problem between the two of you. His sensitivity should not stop you or make you feel fearful to confront him about real issues which impact on your relationship and on your feelings. I would suggest sitting him down and expressing exactly what you feel. At best, he may explain his actions to you. At worst, he doesnt. If that's the case, consider seeking the expertise of a couple's therapist or a psychologist as this can have far reaching implications for your relationship. Its also possible that he may be having a sexual problem which he is too embarrassed about, he could also be having a medical problem (eg thyroid disorder which can affect sleep, energy levels, sexual dysfuction). However, whatever the explanation, it needs to be confronted so that you may be able to sort it out and move forward in your relationship.
