    You mentioned in the Q&A that it was your husband’s “unending patience” with you that played a large role in your ability to open up and figure things out. How did he exhibit this patience? Was it what he said (or didn’t’ say)? Did he not bring up his own sexual needs unless you did? I’m in it for the long haul and I don’t know how I need to be patient for my wife; she doesn’t respond well to pressure and some things I do to try to help unintentionally ADD more pressure than if I had done nothing. For example, in the past I’ve offered to only have sex when she wants it, but she told me that she would feel pressure of initiating and that she felt like it was shifting all responsibility over to her.
    So . . . I’m working on fixing myself. I know I need to she her patience, but how? What do I do?
