Turned-off wife

Dear Queenie,

  My husband helps around the house and he is great with our children, but when it comes to conversation he would rather just make out and he doesn’t understand why I don’t feel the same way.

  Queenie, why are men like that?—Turned-off wife


Dear Wife,

  Not all men are like that.

  Have you tried explaining to your husband what you like and do not like, and what it takes for him to “turn you on”? Be specific about what you want from him, and reward him promptly and thoroughly when you get it. Eventually he will get the idea – hopefully.
