Questions & Answers on Tiger\s Personality and Characteristics
Asked by Lenny from USA | Nov. 27, 2020 01:24Reply
Husband-wife relationship
I was born on Dec 26, 1986. My husband (born Sept 16, 1987) & I have been married only for 4 years now. At first it was very loving & fulfilling but nowadays I keep finding more & more things I dislike from him, and I am not physically attracted with him anymore & he is lack in persuasion & performance too in private matter. I feel like we're more like friends now. When he says he loves me, I don't feel the same anymore & keep thinking about how annoyed I am with him. We don't have children yet as we just started trying 1-2 mos ago but the attraction is going downhill. A bit of fresh air came along, a person who I have admired for so long started communicating with me everyday & I feel more understood by him. He was born in 1974, divorced. I wonder if this person is actually the right person for me instead of who I'm married to. What's the prediction of my love life? I feel like I'm so stuck in unhappiness, but can't afford the divorce nor have I a heart to tell my husband about my change of feelings. I don't wanna be heartless & reckless. Thanks!

The prediction shows that you two have a normal love compatibility index. If you still like him, I think you should contact him actively and find the problem. In this way, you would have a large chance to get back together.
