    Have you been to a good endocrinologist? You might be testosterone deficient.
    I think it's far more likely she's "caring husband" deficient.

    I have a real problem with this "caring husband" deficit stuff. I just
    can't sympathize. I guess it must be a guy thing.

        I think Tony has a point. Some men do not want to be known as 'caring'. They
        want to have an image of 'big tough man'.

          I said "guy thing". I guess that doesn't apply to you.

                Yes, they both have to make an effort to do what would make the other feel
                loved - at the same time. I think they might keep missing each other some
                how. It's very hard to tell what Amy's husband might be doing because
                whatever it is (if there's anything) Amy doesn't seem to recognise it, or
                perhaps not the intention behind it.

                  No Ted, it's a guy thing. That's probably why you don't get it.

                    I thought you were the one who didn't get it. I do. (Doesn't mean I'm
                    *good* at it.)

                      And I was talking about why I don't "get it". My statement was germaine to the conversation. Please do try and keep up.
                      And ruin the fun of the confusion? Nah.
                      I'll try better...

                        I think Tony has a point. Some men do not want to be known as 'caring'. They want to have an image of 'big tough man'.
                        Well, I still wouldn't call it a "guy" thing, since I seem to know
                        plenty of men who are happy to be caring. Though there may be men who
                        are so insecure in their self image than they are afraid to appear to
                        be caring. Unfortunate if that is the case.

                              That's right. He's a guy. His job is to teach self reliance and self sufficiency.
                              What if I wasn't around anymore and he had to be both mother and father? Do
                              you think your average bloke would try to be more 'maternal' in those
                              circumstances?
