I started to experience aversion to her touch, which was new and disturbing to me.
24 hours later, we talked a little, and I told her that this either needed to improve, or we needed to just be friends, or this was going to get bad.
She instantly said we should be friends.
So quickly? I was a little disappointed but she hasn't sufficed as a sexual (or sensual etc) partner for so long that I just said "ok" to make her feel good about her decision.
This life we have built, and that I thought we were building, gone just like that. I have gained so much from it and I thought I'd be able to let her benefit from those gains.
Thank you to this sub. I don't think my (former) relationship benefited from it, except for me being more articulate in what my relationship was lacking. But.you all let me know that what I'm feeling and that what I want isn't wrong, inappropriate or shameful, and that is a life lesson I will keep with me forever.
