Today, trying to be romantic, I started coming on to my wife while in bed, only for her to yet again say she wasn't in the mood. When I asked why she never is lately, she sarcastically blamed it on the government shutdown, then rolled over to go to sleep. FML

and yha your wife is being **** by the goverment... sorry OP

I accidentally read this as "Today, trying to be romantic, I started coming on my wife while in bed..." Confusing, yet intriguing.

This is the second in a series of misinterpreted FMLs containing the word "coming."

First the government ***** us, then it shuts down and cockblocks us. Scumbag government.

Op got more shut down than the government

I blame the Republicans for OP's blue balls

Boehner strikes again. Or not, as it were.

I read #1's comment in Cleavland's voice.

You're not really gonna settle for that are you

Yes, he is. Because she does not have to write a goddamn essay on why she won't have sex with him. No means no.

While I don't think she needs to write him a novel about why she isn't sexual interested, she could actually talk to her husband instead of acting cold. OP stated this wasn't the first time which makes it seem like they're having some sort of marital problems, even if it's just in the bedroom. Best way to solve problems? Talk about them and fix it.

Woah 60... You know that couples don't talk things out, c'mon. They just act passive aggressive and expect the other to deal with it/know what is up.

I agree with 60, if there's an issue she should speak to her husband. Passive aggressive behavior isn't going to solve anything and sex is an important part of a relationship. If sex is dull for her now she should tell him that and try to do new things to spice it up etc.

I agree with #60. The worst thing you can do is go to sleep when there's an issue. I always try to work things out if I have to before the day is over. It makes cuddling that much better.

No one says she has to write an essay 43. But if she's going to give a passive aggressive response instead of being real, then no, OP shouldn't really settle for a response like that. The more I come across people like that, the more I understand why so many people nowadays prefer to be single.

Everyone who says she should tell him what's wrong, I agree IF it's that simple. Maybe she's not sure. Maybe she doesn't know how to say the sex is bad without hurting his feelings. Sometimes a partner needs to evaluate their own behavior. OP, "romance" involves more than rolling over & trying to get sex. Did you put more effort into it earlier in your marriage? Try treating her like you did when you were newlyweds: compliments, little surprises, anything you did often but don't much anymore.

It's a girl thing. I do it too and I honestly can say I have no idea why :/

that's not a girl thing. I'm a girl. that's not my thing.

Please don't generalize and include all girls in your stupidity. It's not "a girl thing" as much as it is an issue that you yourself are having.

My girlfriend constantly says she's never in the mood too. Like over a month of that. it's so frustrating.

If its the same old thing every time, some girls are like that. Some guys are too. Switch things up to keep both parties interested! I have been with the same guy for 6 years and we still aren't like that.

Yes, I was obviously talking about the government guys, c'mon way to assume :p

Idiot that says "Its a girl thing". No, its a passive-aggressive (sometimes cheating) bitch thing. I've never ONCE turned my husband down for it. Even if I was upset with him. Sex is not a weapon to punish your partner with by withholding it from him/her or forcing him/her to do it. Maybe you should get yourself some serious personal one-on-one counselling before considering dating. OP, **** that. That's bullshit, she shouldn't be being a passive-aggressive twat who assumes you can read minds, its not fair and being passive-aggressive is a form of mental abuse.

Just poke her with it. Chicks loooooveee that; automatically puts us in the mood.

So that's what's up with spooning.

105- thanks for the tip. I think every guy on here needed to know that.

Eh. I've had moods where I don't want to have sex. Boyfriends the same way.

JonathanLeon1 10

What the!? Boyfriends the same way...haha yea right

Yeah actually. I actually have a higher sex drive than him.

23 & 33, not all guys are hormone driven sex fiends. compared to most other guys I know, I actually have a pretty low drive.

For sure, there have been times when my boyfriend has turned down my advances as well. Men are not totally sex driven like popular culture would have you believe.

JMichael 25

I have a low sex drive too. I'm rarely horny. But still when a girl is up for sex all she has to do is give the good word and I'm ready to go.

Yeah, I have a far higher sex drive than my boyfriend too. It's a bummer sometimes. We only do "it" when he wants, which is like two or three times a month. I got on birth control for this guy and I get rejected so often it makes me feel ashamed for liking sex. We've been together for over four years and he's my first boyfriend. So yeah, guys really aren't the constantly horny individuals society makes them out to be. Most of the time anyway. It goes both ways.

maybe your idea how of romantic isn't what she had in mind? try talking to her about her likes and dislikes to get a better idea ;) good luck! I hope the government opens soon!

please ignore the word "how", i was on my phone and autocorrect somehow magically slipped that in there =

Shutting down the government and it's subsidiaries was one thing.... but this... this is pure evil...

Yes, because a person refusing to have sex with their spouse is totally worse than the US government shutting down.

Confront her and talk this out.

Agreed, they should talk this out before he gets too frustrated about it. I turn down sex all the time as does my husband, but we always make sure the other knows why. Feelings get hurt when there's no communication.

*approach normally you do not have to "confront" her. she hasn't done you a major wrong by not having sex with you. Talk.

It's not Obama who shut the government down you twit

TheDrifter 23

All he had to do was agree to their terms or compromise and this all could have been avoided. Let the argument begin *grabs popcorn*

no. I am douche-blocking this section of comments.

Actually, #10 got Obama's signature on a football, which is why he's thanking Obama.

#10, I'm a democracy the president doesn't decide what to do on his own (that would be a dictatorship), he is merely the spokesperson who communicates others' decisions to the people this is my understanding of a democratic government, please correct me if I'm wrong and have made myself seem dumber than a doorknob

TheDrifter 23

Close. In the American democracy he is also the spokesman for his political party and he has the power to veto (refuse to sign into law) bills passed by the people's representatives if he disagrees with them or wants to make a political point of opposing those who passed them.

It's an internet joke, I obviously wasn't serious. I know about how the shutdown works and I'm also a girl so you guys know

We got that from your poorly-educated comment saying that all girls were bitches and did it just to be a bitch to their man. No one cares if you've got a twat or a dick.

*Sarcastically * My wife is never in the mood any more. Thanks, Obama!
