We got married a few weeks ago and everything is going great. We just moved to a new state, are still moving and settling into our house, my husband started a new job this week, and we’ve been busy! I’m wondering if it’s becasue we are so busy, have so many new big changes to adjust to, or if it’s because my husband is 7 years older, but we’ve only been intimate once since we got married. I think it could be a combination of many things – lots of changes, business, stress, difference in hormones with age, etc. But I’d like to be intimate more often especially since we are newlyweds!, but I’m shy making a move or asking for it. Anyone have any sublte ways or words or actions to broach the subject?

I would come on to him and see how he reacts. That’s what I do, and if there’s a negative response I ask why he’s been distant.

Sometimes when I’m feeling shy, I just wear something lacy and suggestive and happy to need to run from the bathroom to the bedroom to get something. I also find that just general flirting helps to reduce the stress and let him start thinking about it as well.

It does sound like you both have a lot on your plates atm, maybe it is the stress of all the changes.
I would definitely try flirting & initiating more if you are wanting more intimacy– maybe he expects you to be more bold because you are married now? Is it possible that he wants you to come to him rather than vice versa?
