When I was with my husband, I never wanted sex. blushNow ive been happily separated for 6 months, its all I can think about! (but not with him of course!).wink I dont want to get into a relationship for quite some time, as Im still healing from the abusive marraige. Think the kids need time too. Do I just need a good book?grin

I was like that too. Well, still am. No idea what to suggest - a rabbit & a good book? wink

hmm, I think a good bonk would be better - I well remember feeling like that!

Well, there's nothing like the real thing but it can be a bit tricky when you are on your own. You're not allowed to jump on the nearest bloke

I know, I know - though I felt like it at times smile

Me too. Unfortunately, it's frowned upon.

lol. this is so unlike me. I have told myself, I need to be single for at least 5 years, in order for it not to be a big deal for the kids. 5 years confused !!!
How am I gonna do that? And dont know if I will ever want a relationship again anyway, after what Ive been through. Becoming a Matt Cardle stalker, YUM hmm

5 years??? it is not even 5 years from my split and in that time I have dated 8 guys, being engaged once and in another committed relationship for more than 2 years.

But perhaps I shouldn't be critical about your time scales... I was sure I was never going to be with anyone else after the split.

BTW, my child is fine. I only introduced him to the serious relationships and I can say that he got many good things from the first one, and for the second one... he has drawn a lot of support and help in difficult times, to the point that he often refers to him as "half dad" and "the best dad in the world".

Its just been really hard on me and the kids. It was a relationship I never thought I would be strong enough to leave, but I did it grin . In all honesty, Im scared to how xh will react if I got into another relationship, you hear all types of stories. For now, me and the kids are good, but I cant take that chance, he could make life hell for us all sad

You don't have to hurry up, but you don't have to see divorce as the end of the story but as the beginning of new possibilities.

I got myself a rabbit as I was feeling exactly the same than you. Sex with ExP after DD was born was nil and the few times we did it (3 times in 2 years) it was the worst experience in my life. I didn't feel like having sex for very long time but two months after separeting I had this urge and as I do not want any relathionship at the moment, I am not ready at all, a friend of mine suggested a rabbit. I never thought of buying one, I was not sure if I would like it anyway but I have to say I should have been introduce to it much earlier in my life and I would have saved myself a lot of problems grin

this has shocked a few people, but it worked for me. Have you tried suggesting to a single, male (hunky) friend you could pay him for it? We agreed 99p. He was dead willing. And no strings! smile

I know the feeling - only just coming up to 6m though.

TBH it is not teh lack of sex per se (I can deal with that myself). It is more the lack of intimacy, a hug and a good snog that I miss....not that I got any of that before we split.

Rabbit, then friend(s) with benefits before cautiously embarking on relationship after two years with someone I've known for a long time. Worked for me!

BTW I got my FWB from Guardian Soulmates and we're still really good friends. And well done for leaving, I too left an abusive relationship and it takes a long time to get over it.

Everything you have jumped into my brain and stolen my thoughts!! Seriously, your OP could have been written by me, it's exactly how I feel!

I find myself drooling over eyeing up the most inappropriate men, from young delivery drivers to my very handsome doctor blush grin
