I'm new to this site and hoping I can talk to some people who can relate to what is going on in my life. My boyfriend of 1 1/2 years is a great man. He is kind and generous and generally a very good person. We had sex a few times early on then issues started to happen. It got to the point that he has zero sex drive, will barely kiss me (nothing intimate in well over a year) and his depression is very bad. He has been taking Androgel 1% for almost a month now with zero improvement. He told me he is only doing it for me. I get on his case when it gets to be too much for me and as much as I don't want to, I blow up at him.
I feel like he just doesn't love me anymore. He won't touch or kiss me and even when I ask him to help me feel good he won't. He told me when I use my toys that he feels like I am cheating on him. So am I expected to go over a year with zero intimacy???? At one point he even told me to find someone else to have sex with, just be careful and don't let him find out. I could and would never do that. Will things get better? How do I be more supportive of him? Please help me...I don't want to lose him.View Thread
