My partner, whom I have been with two years, and I have a six month old son.
Before getting pregnant (unplanned) our relationship had started to change, we werent as loving and rarely were intimate. (I have not changed in appearance, bar im a bit less toned from pregnancy. not an awful looking girl!)
It got worse through the pregnancy, being intimate approx. 5 times in the past year.
I confronted him about this hundreds of times, each time leading to an argument.
Eventually after our son was born he admitted that he does love me, find me attractive but does not know why we are not intimate at all.
He has since been diagnosed with depression. His libido is still present, when he is 'alone'.
I was very very angry, frustrated and upset by this whole fiasco however now that he has started a course of medication to fight the depression and is feeling better, I dont feel the same way towards him as I had done.
It has gone from me begging for intimacy for the past year to me now being happier spending time alone myself.
I dont feel the spark between us, infact im not sure I have done since before falling pregnant. I feel like we are housemates or good friends and not a family or couple.
I have started to think about my ex more and more now too. Wondering if maybe I chose the wrong guy.
Has anyone any advice on what I should do?
