  • I am not a physical touch person, and neither is DH. Our daughter’s friends would see us as kind and respectful, a bit playful, but not all over each other. People say its the culture. To be honest, I kinda dread when certain relatives come over, because of the hugging. Our children see us kissing, hugging, wrestling, teasing, even the occasional disagreement. Than they see us making up.

    In church, very little hugging for anyone. Lol its just a certain nature and the older folks blame it on the country from which we originated. I won’t say it here, lest I give myself away. Lets just say some appear cold hearted and they really aren’t, while others appear all ‘warm and fuzzy’, which we aren’t. Ha, years ago when our children were little, their paternal cousins would come over. Those parents would make their children hug ours and at ages 3 and 5, our children hated it. I hug our children now and tell them I love them, but not too much hugging and kissing. Its just not us, I guess.

  • Nice answers, everyone. One more question, than. Is this something DH and I could work on? Like doing more in public? In our culture, and social setting, I was trying to think if I have seen any kissing, LOL, of course, other than to children. There’s always handholding, and some touching. DH and I would do more than most. But never any kissing. LOL, I guess I’ll just answer my own question. DH would be mortified if I kissed him in church. Or in front of his mom or my parents. Well, its something to think on, anyway.

  • Yikes, I just thought of it. Maybe the email wasn’t really from TMB. I don’t know how it all works.

  • I got an email from TMB saying someone had flagged a thread I had started. When I clicked that link, it led me to someone else’s uncalled for post, at the end of the thread, that had quite a few downvotes. So I am not sure what happened there.

      Numbers, comments and upvotes aren’t adding up. There are no comments to read the last couple of days, unless people aren’t commenting at all….

    • On the floor Asked 3 days ago in MARRIED SEX.

      I would wear it, and wear it confidently. He has seen every inch of me, anyway, so what does it matter, which parts are hidden, accented, etc.

      DH doesn’t care for lingerie much, so I rarely use it. If he bought me a piece, it would be very special. Our tastes are mostly the same. He does love nightshirts and has bought a couple for me. Lol they aren’t worn to bed though, just before. Plus, I am difficult to fit, so he generally wouldn’t risk ordering or buying something without checking fit. He also wouldn’t be caught in a lingerie store, not even with me!

    • On the floor Asked 3 days ago in Question of the Day.

        Yes, when I first came to TMB, I was fairly shocked….and jealous.

        But, I am not one to stay at a standstill and I seriously began working on my part of our marriage. Even though it wasn’t so bad, I realized it could be a lot better!

        Sometimes, when the thought of jealousy, almost began to rear its ugly head, I realized that every single marriage, no matter how good it appears, has some area that could use some help. I also know how very good I/we have it. Marriages/people may appear on here and it all sounds good, but I pretty much rest assured in the fact that nobody, no matter how good it sounds, has the perfect life/marriage/ children. Mine, however good I feel about it in the moment, has had its rough spots and likely will again.

        And like someone once told me, she wanted to do everything perfect, and live life without a flaw, but than she realized its all the people who come across as perfect, that others don’t want to be around.

      • I’ll go first!

        We hug and kiss in front of our children, but never have kissed in front of parents or siblings. DH’s one brother would kiss his wife in front of the younger siblings just to gross them out.

        We hold hands whenever we have a chance, public, or otherwise. When sitting at a table, we often are somehow touching under the table or a hand in the lap. When on a sofa, we sit right up against each other and will have our feet on the recliner together. Or he will sit at one end and I will sit at the other, with my feet in his lap.

        Awhile ago, MIL came to visit. There were all the obligation hugs when she left. Than DD (13 at the time) asked me if DH and I ever hugged. I was taken aback and said, of course we do, almost every day. She looked puzzled and said she had never seen us hug!!! It took me a bit to figure it out what would ever makeher say that. DH and I don’t hug like we hug grandma. I think I explained to her what I called hugging DH. It made sense than.

        Neither of us learned any public displays of affection from our parents. My parents would sit close to each other in a vehicle if nobody saw them. One time, someone who knew them was following them on the highway. When my parents got close to their destination, my mom moved back to the passenger side so no one would see them sitting together!

          Nothing embarrassing. My mom kept extra personal supplies in closet such as deodorant, etc. One time I found a tube of KY. I remember going back and looking at it. No idea if I knew what it was or why I was so curious about it. My parents were beyond modest and super secret about anything to do with anyone’s reproductive systems!

        • On the floor Asked 4 days ago in Non-Sexual Romance .

            We give each other cards on Valentine’s. We never go out to eat, as we are a long ways from town. Any special meals out are combined with a regular trip to town for necessities. DH is a sentimental person so he would never skip giving me a card. Lol I’ve learned that holiday cards are literally taken off the shelves the day after the holiday. I am thinking this year of making a special Valentine’s supper for DH and our children, but haven’t worked out the details yet.
