This is a touchy subject.  I would probably just try to seduce him – no conversation about it all.  Or be extra affectionate and hope one thing leads to another.  If you want something to happen, make it happen!  good luck

ETA: I would probably try that before having a conversation about it.  If that fails a few times, I guess you will have to talk to him and just say how you miss feeling close to him or something.  Since you know you dont want to make him feel attacked, it sounds like you will be fine becuase you are already empathetic to his feelings

@MrsTVLover:  This is very good advice.

@Buzzinganon:  I have a situation very similar to yours, right down to the night owl part. My DH has health issues that he doesnt always proactively address, issues with anxiety, etc., and we also have infertility and unemployment hanging over our heads. So this has really put a damper on sex.

Talking about it sometimes helps, but not always. However a few days ago, I initiated sex with affection, with no blaming, etc., and it worked out well. It is worth a try!
