    I nominate this for most bizarre thread ever.

    In your girlfriend's defense, I can kind of understand why she doesn't want to sit there cuddling and listening to your problems.

    You need to take action and do what women do to us when we don't want to cuddle -- cut her off from sex! That will show her who's in charge and get the cuddling back in full force.

    You have a relationship reversal situation here.

    This might be good advice..but I don't know if its the same to cuddle with a person who doesn't want to cuddle back..I think i'll try this just to see the result.

    Maybe she'll stop all cuddling until sex returns [​IMG] and it will be official cold war [​IMG]

    Perhaps you could still enjoy your girl and cuddle elsewhere... I don't think that counts as cheating b/c no fluids are exchanged.

    If you cut her off sexually she will get it from somewhere else. Anyway she is probably annoyed by your needyness. Im going to generalize and say girls dont tend to like being the one always giving out the reassurances. Even better mull your problems around in your head and talk it over with a good friend or two. Then slowly move forward with them. That'll get her attention.

    I was joking about cutting her off.

    What I seriously recommend you do is treat her the way she is treating you for a while, but even a bit more extremely. Just act like you are using her for sex for a while. Have sex with her and when you're done, walk out of the room and turn on ESPN. Significantly reduce the affection you shower on her. In her screwed up little female mind, this will very likely leave her wanting more affection than ever.

    Not that I claim to be an expert, but imho this "punishment" approach is not likely to be effective despite its superficial appeal - and in a circumstances where it was I'd question how healthy the relationship really was . . .

    You are a genius!

    Better yet, after coitus, head straight to your Pet Sounds box set and play the instrumental versions loudly and ejaculate: THE SLEIGH BELLS! THE SLEIGH BELLS!!!

    Im going to California soon so..if she doesnt agree to come I guess i'll be the one leaving her..

    To the other guys-

    thanks for the advice here..I think some of it will help [​IMG] . I like that Pet Sounds tune "Don't Talk..(put your head on my shoulder)" but sometimes I just need to tell my problems to the girl I love.. is this really so bad for a relationship [​IMG]? Im there to listen to her when she fights with her family..or the boss is being a mean guy [​IMG] I get angry when I here someone causing her troubles..

    I just want some of that same tender consideration.

    Yeah, but at least then he'd be acting like a man, which, might make his woman respect him a little more and therefore will get her to pay a little more attention to him. And if not, at least he will have his dignity as a man.

    Why are you even with this woman? Sounds like a miserable relationship. All good relationships require effort, but they shouldn't be full of struggle, manipulation, mindgames and constant guessing to try to figure out what the hell is going on inside the other person's head. Life is too damned short, and the world too damned full of women to be constantly wasting time and emotional energy on all that nonsense. [​IMG]

    Don't take this the wrong way, but, I have a feeling that this girl is giving you the cold shoulder because you don't act like a man. Women want to feel secure and have a guy that is going to protect them and be there for them and be the one who is going to be strong and stable when things get rough. They don't want some guy who wants to sit there cuddling all the time and moaning and whining about his problems. Sure, there has to be an emotional attachment and there are times when sensitivity is required, but your woman just wants to know that she is with a man, not some over-sensitive needy whiny unstable kid that just wants to cuddle and talk about his problems.
