Is it normal to not feel giddy in love with your partner?
I've been married for 12 years and my husband keeps telling me that he is still crazy in love with me but knows I am not in love with him.
I love him but I don't have that giddy in love feeling anymore. Is this normal? Should I still be getting butterflies when I see him?
i do t want this to end but he thinks that maybe it's not what I want anymore and maybe my anxiety is because I'm not happy with him .
I am so confused and scared at the moment and I just wanted to see what everyone else thinks. I always thought it would be normal to feel the way I do but maybe I'm wrong ?
Thank you so much, I've been struggling so much this year and I'm so confused. I am trying, I'm writing in a diary and trying to exercise and keep trying to push negative feelings aside and then a wave of anxiety washes over me and I am back to square one.
This year is the first where I have ever been worried about our marriage and it scares the hell out of me. I don't want it to end and I feel so bad for him.
Thank you again for your response.
Thank you Vanessa.
My husband tells me that he is happy and madly in love with me the same as when we first met, but at the same time he is saying maybe I'd be happier with someone else.
When I tell him I love him he often brushes it off as if I don't mean it and talks himself down.
I personally think maybe he is a bit depressed too and needs to work out what's happening for him too.
He promised me a while ago that we could see a marriage counsellor and then changed his mind and said for me to just look after myself.
i do love him and I don't want our marriage to end I just wish I could get that loving desire back for him because he deserves it .
