Is it wrong to desire attention from opposite sex if married when spouse never makes you feel desired?

Answered 1 year ago

I love my spouse i would never cheat on them, i dont want to be single. Maybe its a middle age crisis or something idk. Just feels nice to be noticed even tho it doesn't really happen, i have no friends, i am not allowed to have alone interactions/friends of the opposite sex since its a tight very protective marriage between us. we both agreed on this as it can be dangerous. So i am not complaining about it. But the lack of being able to have the slightest interaction with women without my spouse getting jealous and turning into a big fight is starting to make me feel like i cant be myself around people. Then i desire attention from opposite sex as my spouse hardly ever lets me know i am a desirable person.

Its ok to not have friends of the opposite sex if you both agree to it. You really need to talk about how you feel.

Why can't you have friends of the same sex?
I personally think your whole situation is bizarre.
Not allowed friends, is controlling. But you needing attention, what's going on in your life that you are not happy with yourself and need other people to make you feel good about yourself?
So much to unpack right there

That is a warning alarm right there. Dictating wjo can have what friends is controlling and a relationship sjould not have any form of controlling behaviour from either party.

Try having an honest discussion about how you feel. My husband was feeling like this and I had no idea. I was just busy with kids and life and didn’t realise how he was feeling. Maybe you could agree on an open relationship if she is not willing to be affectionate and give you what you need.
