DEAR DEIDRE: THANK you for saving my relationship and my sex life.
When I wrote, I’d almost given up hope that things would ever change between me and my partner.
He’s been making more effort and we’ve even been on some dates
I’m a woman of 33 and he is 35.
After five years, we had stopped communicating and became virtual strangers.
He didn’t do any housework and spent every evening watching sports online.
I felt lonely, unappreciated and unattractive.
We no longer made love and I was losing my desire for him.
You told me to give him a wake-up call. I needed to be honest and tell him I was having serious doubts about our future together.
You suggested that if things improved, I’d fall back in love and my libido would return.
And you gave me your support pack, Looking After Your Relationship.
You were right. I told him everything I was feeling and we read the pack together.
He said he didn’t want to lose me and we sat down and worked out what needed to change.
