No we are not seeing a therapist. He refuses to go and says "you need to go and get fixed."
No he is not specific about what makes him upset/angry--it is usually some little thing I say that sets him off. He will take a small thing and make a mountain out of it and use
that as an excuse to withhold affection. What happened on Sat. I am insecure about other women, suspicious and know that he is always looking at other women in public, because 3 yrs ago when he traveled for his job all wk he flirted with them even when I was sitting right there! Also I am overly sensitive due to my age and increase in weight. He was walking holding my hand and pulled it and I asked why and he said there were girls behind that wanted to get past us on the sidewalk and all I was doing was walking behind my daughter and soninlaw and my husband said I was walking in the middle of the sidewalk at the festival! I got angry and said I don't need to worry or move for those b.....and he immediaely jerked his hand away. I'm not holding your hand look at how you talk. I did not argue or fight in public and tried to act like it did not hurt me. Last night and today he did not show me any affection over a stupid thing like that and that is his latest way to hurt me. Yes, he is very passive-aggressive.
My specific question is how am I supposed to respond to this withholding of affection--say or do?
I am waiting patiently--the 15 min. is over. Thanks.
