Wife Doesn’t Want Sex Anymore? What Can You Do?

Wife doesn’t want sex anymore? Trying hard to make her happy? Find out what works and what doesn’t to create attraction and passion with her again…

Can you relate to these traits of what I call the “hummingbird husband”? I can.

Hummingbirds are nervous little fellers. Uncertain and twitchy.

They don’t trust anyone or anything. Always questioning.

Anxious as hell hovering for their turn at the feeder.

And with a flying heart rate around 1000 beats per minute I wonder why they just don’t explode in mid-air.

Can you relate? I can.

The Guaranteed Libido Killer

I’m a leading authority on the hummingbird husband. I was one for many years and I can now spot it easily in the men I work with. It’s a syndrome that’s sure to leave you feeling agitated with yourself.

And it’s a guaranteed libido killer in all wives. One hundred percent of them. Did I mention I’m an expert?

We’re not bad husbands. We’re actually really super guys. A little “overly involved” perhaps, but we mean well…maybe.

We’re just being attentive. Possibly too attentive.

But we just want to know what’s going on. We want to know what she’s doing, where she’s going, who she’s talking to, who she’s texting.

We want to know what she’s buying, why she needs it, why is she late and how could she possibly not know she was driving on a flat tire. Doesn’t she know that will ruin a tire?

Hummingbird husbands ask lots of questions. Rarely simple statements. Rapid fire innocent inquiries are our specialty.

It’s exhausting for both of us.

And here’s our dirty little secret about our overwhelming concern for her well-being.

When we keep asking:

“Are you okay? What’s the matter? Did I do something wrong? Why are you mad? How are you doing?”

…what we’re really asking is “Am I okay?”

Am I Okay? Am I Okay? Am I Okay?

When I was in my hovering days, this was the underlying question behind most of my questions.

Am I okay? Are we okay? Do you still love me? Do you still want me?

It’s embarrassing as hell to admit I was that guy for some time. I sought continual reassurance that everything was okay. That I would be okay.

Insecurity sucks. And it’s magnified about 100 times toward the end of a marriage. It’ll eat a man alive.

I was a typical hummingbird husband. To the outside world I was a model of calmness and stability. At work and social situations I was Mr. Cool. It was not an act. I really was Mr. Cool.

But I could never figure out where Mr. Cool went when I was in my own house.

Like I said, insecurity sucks. And it seems to be most triggered in our romantic relationships – inside our own home.

Yeah, I’m Okay

If you can relate to any part of the hummingbird husband’s story, I want you to know one important fact. Do not doubt me on this. Remember, I am a leading authority.

You’re okay.

Really, you are. All of that blabbering, hovering and interrogating is just a little self-doubt.

Your overactive mind and anxious heart is just a matter of a little self-esteem recalibration.

While I am definitely not an expert on male insecurity or the underlying baggage causing it, I do know this. You have the power of choice.

I’ve witnessed too many men simply choose to stop with the hummingbird act and adopt a healthier perspective of themselves and their lives. They did enough introspection and inner work to allow themselves to experience an epiphany. A BFO (Blinding Flash of the Obvious).

It sounds like,

“My wife and my marriage are not and have never been the source – or the measure – of my value. I’m okay, dammit. I’m okay!”
When these guys decided to change their operating system, it was like moving their mojo setting from hummingbird to mountain lion. They embraced a whole new demeanor. It’s best described as a calm, deliberate and pleased energy.

It’s not an act. They really are a mountain lion.

They feel cool headed, secure, regal, aware, curious, playful, loving, protective, brave, sensitive and caring.

You may find them on a high rock casually flipping their tail and letting out a huge yawn before taking a nap in the sun.

No more doubts. No more questions. Heart rate – 40.

From that vantage point, anything is possible.

If you want to learn more about how to be comfortable, confident and peaceful in your own skin, I’d love to help show you the way. Get started today, here’s your first step…

We work with men who are willing to take the lead in creating the changes they want in their life and relationships.

We teach you practical ways to deal with the mental and emotional challenges life throws at you and help you reach an unshakeable confidence in yourself (often for the first time in your life).

  • You won’t find negative, hateful language.
  • You won’t find a gender war – we don’t bash women.
  • You won’t find bitching, whining, complaining, and blaming.
  • You won’t find a group of men acting like victims.
  • You won’t find judgment or criticism from others.

We don't waste our time with all those things because we want to take the most efficient and effective path to creating the future you want. So we focus only on the things that are within your control: your thoughts, your words and your actions.

How do I know if I need coaching?

If you are feeling unhappy a lot of the time, if you're lonely, drained, lost, stuck or trapped, then our coaching will help. If you're not sure where your life is headed, if you're not confident in yourself, if you're not sure what you really want in life anymore...our coaching will help.

Whether it’s your job, your intimate relationship, or just wanting to feel more happy and with more purpose, then our coaching will help.

If you are tired of settling for a mediocre life or relationship, tolerating criticism and a lack of fun and intimacy and you're done with placating and playing it safe, then our coaching will help.

We will help you have clarity about what you're REALLY passionate about. We'll get you clear about where you want to be in six months and in six years. We help you figure out what you really want to create vs what other people think you should do.

We help you take action, get unstuck, start moving forward. We help you find what matters instead of just "being busy" in the daily grind. We help you figure out how you're going to get from where you are now to where you want to be.

For many of the guys we work with, they find a peace and a sense of emotional freedom that has them shaking their heads and smiling at how they used to approach life. They feel passionate about life again. They build stronger relationships with the people that matter most to them. They feel satisfied and fulfilled that they have finally found the “right path” forward and life starts to feel fun and inspiring again.
