Distracted Hubby Leavin' You Lonely?

I’m lonely! My husband is too distracted to pay attention to me. What should I do?

by Melissa Orlov


It is easy to interpret your spouse’s distraction as lack of love for you. Don’t! Chances are, he loves you a lot, but his ADD is getting in the way.

Though it sounds unromantic, scheduling time together will ensure that you get the quantity and quality of attention you need. Take trips together to eliminate his distractions and help him focus on you. Schedule time to make love. Consider whether medication might reduce his distraction.

Finally, set the alarm 10 minutes early every day and spend those minutes cuddling and telling each other how much you love each other. It’s a great way to start the day.
