The first year of my two year relationship we were relatively affectionate with eachother. He claimed from the beginning to be impotent so we did not sleep together. As we started our second year together the affection became less and less and I felt bad having always to be the instigator. By the end the most affection I recieved was sitting next to him on the couch while he watched t.v. I often had the feeling that he did not know how to express himself in an itimate way. I was wondering if this kind of behavior is common. It has been four days since I have had contact with him and it has been hard at times. My brain seems to totally understand what went on but my heart still breaks and is in shock over the whole thing.
