Hey I get being disappointed by something. Just because it may not be the biggest problem in the world, sometimes it just sucks when you work hard and something doesn't turn out the way you want it to. I completely relate. And sometimes it's because things in life AREN'T going so great, you just wanted something to go well, you know? Like when my gram was dying, I once burst into tears because a dress I'd altered didn't come out well and didn't fit me nicely like I'd wanted. I had purchased a slightly too big size because it was on sale. It was gorgeous, just needed some tailoring. I was going to wear it to an anniversary dinner. Well my tailoring was a bit off and this gorgeous dress, now unreturnable, ended up unsuable. I CRIED over it, when actually far more serious things were going on.....like my dying grandmother. And at that time, we were having some serious financial problems. But it was like, Geez, can't something go right for me lately?That was that feeling.

I am not ungrateful. I am DISAPPOINTED. I saved for a new floor. I amDISAPPOINTED because I think it is ugly. Get off your moral high horse. I am sure YOU are allowed to be upset and disappointed or are you Mother Theresa? Sheesh.

Of all the things I hate....being dry humped from behind while I am preoccupied has GOT to be one of the most annoying things ever. And if my husband wants to go dry hump someone else because I personally find it offensive? Let him. How pathetic of a man would that make him? Waaaa, ,y wife demands I respect her, waaaaa.

I don't like being poked or prodded like a hunk of meat. Certain kinds of touch annoy me. My DH hates being tickled. We find pleasurable ways to touch each other that both enjoy. Both. That's how grown ups figure it out.

I want affection from my dh which is not the same as sexual attention. Kissing me on the lips to greet me is affection. Dry humping me is sexual and unwanted. Men can pretend all they want that they don't know the difference, but I know they do. They're not stupid. I have had so many discussions regarding the difference between affection and intimacy vs sexual attention with my female friends.

My bf told be about an incident that occurred with his ex wife. He said they were playing around and were rough housing, he had gotten too rough (not intentionally) with his ex wife and she didn't like it. He apologized but that wasn't good enough, she kicked him in the balls HARD. He instinctively kicked her back in her crotch HARD too. She threatened to call the cops, he said go ahead but you kicked me in the crotch first for no reason cause you got mad at me even though I said I was sorry; I said I was sorry and I meant it. I will tell the cops you assaulted me first and that I was defending myself. She didn't call the cops but she stayed angry at him for the longest time over that. He and I agree that if she did call the cops he'd probably be arrested for assault and she'd get off free and clear.

Once when I was in my early 20s and my brother was a teenager, and quite a bit bigger than me, he was play-fighting with me and ended up pinning me to the floor and wouldn't let me up. Let me preface this with the fact that his play-fighting was not consensual- he would just pick you up and toss you around. His goal wasn't to hurt you, but it was pretty damned annoying when you couldn't do much to avoid it or stop it once it started. I was getting pissed and warned him that if he didn't let me up I'd punch him in the face. He didn't let me up, so I got a free hand and popped him on the cheek. He let me go to grab his cheek, acting surprised that I punched him. I certainly don't condone violence, as I grew up in a household where it was a frequent occurrence, but no one should ever do anything that strips you of your autonomy. I will say that he never pinned me down again.

I love tight squeezy hugs, holding hands, laying together on the couch, having my back rubbed, rubbing my dh's back and legs, kissing etc., those all feel good and positive. I don't like having my breasts and nipples pinched and grabbed like I'm an animal. Groping, not cool. Hugging, anytime.

My EX-DH liked to sit on me and tickle me. He thought it was fun. One time, I couldn't breathe and he wouldn't get off me. I hit him..it was a reflex. I don't condone it but I couldn't breathe and that's the only way I could get him to stop. Yep, what a prize that man was.

There are lots of people who need a good beating, and sexual assaulters are certainly on the list. Doesn't mean we get to start smacking people around. And if my husband engaged in behavior that he knows I consider sexual assault or abuse, I would be out of the marriage, rather than getting physically abusive myself.
