OUR sex life is great but I don’t know where it’s headed as my girlfriend refuses to discuss us having children.
I’m older than she is and keen to become a father. Yet any time I mention her coming off the pill and me giving up condoms she changes the subject.
When I complain that sex often feels meaningless because it never leads to the natural conclusion – i.e. a baby – she laughs.
I’d like her to tell me when we’ll start a family and how many children we’ll have, but she refuses to engage.
JANE SAYS: Condoms and the pill suggest to me that your girlfriend is absolutely determined not to get pregnant any time soon.
I suggest you ask for that all- important sit-down chat and leave her in no doubt of your desire for a family. What is she seriously thinking? Is she afraid?
Or looking for someone else to settle down with? Unfortunately if you feel the clock is ticking and she’s not interested in your plans, then are you in the right relationship moving forward?
Keep talking and don’t allow her to ignore you.
