Do you think your wife put you in the friendzone? Here are signs that confirm it
Friendzone is a dreaded place and no one wants to land into it. If you have married your sweetheart, then congratulations are in order! You have avoided the friend zone forever. You are now in a stable and loving relationship. Your wife loves you and considers you her best friend. You have everything going for you.
But you and I know both know that the real picture is quite bland compared to the rosy scenario we have painted above. Sure your wife loves you, but is she in love with you anymore? Sure your wife considers you her best friend but does she also find you desirable on a romantic and sexual level?
Most often, couples lose the intense heat and spark of the early years of a relationship and fall into a comfortable yet humdrum of a marriage. Despite being happily married, one partner puts the other one in a friendzone. Sexual intimacy and spark evaporate from the marriage. This opens doors for infidelity and cheating.
As a husband, if you are worried that your wife has put you in the friend zone, it is time to take action. But first, let’s identify the root cause of your situation and the signs which suggest that your wife has friend-zoned you.
Lack of Physical Intimacy From Your Wife
- The beginning of a romantic relationship is the most exciting part of it. Sparks are flying and both partners cannot keep their hands off each other. Once the relationship stabilizes and matures, the initial spark fades and is replaced by trust and understanding.
However, in some cases, physical intimacy also fades as the relationship progresses till you reach a point where even the smallest gestures of intimacy are gone. If you notice a lack of kissing, knee-touching, flirtatious eye contact and smiling, hand-holding, and back touching from your wife’s end, then we have some bad news for you.
- It is a sign that your wife is probably not sexually attracted to you anymore and considers you just a good friend.
Your Wife Openly Declares You A Friend
Your wife shows you affection but only in platonic terms. She openly calls you her best friend and the most important person in her life. It’s sweet and flattering at first, but slowly you start to realize that she gives you platonic labels only.
- When was the last time your wife addressed you as her boo, babe, love, or soul mate? If your wife doesn’t throw around these adoring and romantic labels commonly, it possible she sees you just as a good friend.
Your Sexual Advances are Not Well Received
Are your romantic overtures and sexual advances ill-received by the missus? Is she always making excuses to weasel out of romantic dates and is not responding to your advances in the bed? If such is the case, then you should know that you have landed yourself into the friendzone.
- The lack of sexual attraction on your wife’s part does not necessarily mean that she isn’t fond of you anymore. It means that the nature of fondness has changed. She doesn’t view you in sexual content anymore rather takes you as a very close friend.
Does a Friendzoned Marriage Spell Trouble?
We cannot provide a simple answer to this question. It differs from person to person. Lack of physical intimacy and sexual attraction can be problematic in the long run.
If you believe you have been friend-zoned by your wife, we recommend you take couple’s therapy sessions to reignite the spark.
