Intimacy Issues+Childhood

I’m married.

My husband is a lot more sensitive than I, prefers to be touched, hugged & held. While I’m like a cat. I get over stimulated by too much touching and leave or lashout.

My mother wasn’t a hugger. She was hardworking & very cold.

I’m very successful but being sensitive, wanting to be held & touched are last on my list of priorities.

How can I love someone the way they want to when I don’t even know how?

I don’t want to make him feel like he’s being “soft” or “feminine” but sometimes I wish he could understand that not every woman is “mushy”.

Are you the head strong one in your relationship? Do you like your space ? No ? Then wtf is wrong with me ?!
