well i do. i always floss/brush nightly and dont think i have bad breath or anything but last time we were ahem "intimate" whenever i went to kiss him he would sort of back off. after i asked what it was about and he said my mouth had a funny taste. i feel awful but think its some kind of avoidance thing or to put me down or something. i think as he never initiates sex and i have a complex about it already. he's always "tired" and when he agrees its like "lets get this over with then" and if i leave it to him to initiate weeks will pass without anything. am getting fed up. every time i try to talk about it i get not much response and that i'm always too desperate. i dont think twice a week is too desperate though ideally even thats a bit less for me. am very fed up. any advice?
are you drinking enough water , eating enough?. sometimes if you dont eat enough you can get bad breath, theres a name for it keyatosis or something? <<<not sure exactly>>> sometimes if you had ear/sore throat it can do the same. ditto if you catch threadworm...<<<<eww>>> so go get a mot off your gp !
Have you seen a dentist recently? Are you on a low carb diet? Have you asked anyone else e.g. mum whether you have bad/ funny breath? Ketoacidosis is unlikely but are you well in yourself? Number of possible reasons for ' funny' smell/taste including some medical things.
Talk to him, yummy. You need to be honest with eachother to have a good relationship. Tell him you're upset and you want an honest conversation about how you and he are feeling, because if he's feeling that he doesn't want to be intimate with you, then you two need to work out a way that you can live together and both get your needs met.
I dont like kissing my partner because his breath smells and he tastes funny. I am not a prick, he smokes heavily and needs a visit to the dentist. He knows this, he hasnt chosen to do anything about it, which is of course up to him.
I think go to the dentist first to rule that out. Then if he's being a git then that is a separate issue to deal with!
My FIL had really bad breath for a while and I definitely avoided him coming near my face even for a peck on the cheek! After his wife nagged him to go to the dentist he eventually went and it turned out he had a rotting tooth in there (ewwww) I can now go near him again.
thanks reality would love to say that but wouldnt! hmm so he does have intimacy issues then will try the talk but i think he just doesnt get how it upsets me. also he doesnt like doggy style! new positions freak him a bit
My DP hates it with a passion when I smoke because, we both know it, my breath is terrible when I do, yet he still kisses me! Just like I [try and fail] to kiss him when he's eaten meat (he doesn;t let me though unless he brushes his teeth first, even a peck! A PITA when picnicing or going for a meal!) Your DP seems a bit of an arse IMO, even if your breath does smell!
been together v long time 15 years. he's never been into different positions really. also doesnt like idea of sex toys have tried to gently introduce them (not literally lol hed have a heart attack!) but to no avail.
