Partner Rejecting Your Sexual Advances? An 'Excuses Spreadsheet' Is Unlikely To Help

Here's a life hack for the suicidally brave. A husband fed up with his wife's diminished libido recently decided to keep a spreadsheet of all of the excuses she gave for not having sex. He then emailed her the damning litany to highlight just how often she had knocked back his sexual advances. If your partner never seems to be in the mood lately, maybe you should follow his example.

...Or maybe not. Proving the old adage that "hell hath no fury", his wife promptly posted the spreadsheet on Reddit for the world to mock and ridicule:

Yesterday morning, while in a taxi on the way to the airport, Husband sends a message to my work email which is connected to my phone. He’s never done this, we always communicate in person or by text. I open it up, and it’s a sarcastic diatribe basically saying he won’t miss me for the 10 days I’m gone. Attached is a SPREADSHEET of all the times he has tried to initiate sex since June 1st, with a column for my “excuses”, using verbatim quotes of why I didn’t feel like having sex at that very moment.

Below is the spreadsheet in question. According to the document, the wife only agreed to sex three times over a seven-week period and 27 “attempts” by the husband. Her excuses ranged from "feeling sweaty" to watching reruns of Friends .

OK, so this foolhardy tactic probably won't get you more nooky, but at least you'll have a paper trail of evidence leading to your sexual neglect. This could prove handy during divorce proceedings. Possibly.

Alternatively, you could try staying positive and keep a sexual planning spreadsheet instead. US venture capitalist Brad Feld and his wife Amy are big believers in spreadsheet-driven coitus. So much so that they event wrote a book about it.

“If you can agree on the amount, frequency and type of actions that matter, then you can see whether the entrepreneurial partner is meeting those targets,” Feld explains.

    The fact that he prepared a spreadsheet like this then refused her calls pretty much says it all really. I'd be avoiding sex with a jerk like that too (I doubt this is the first time he's done something so immature). Perhaps she'd find him more attractive if he didn't act so desperate.

    Wow, there are a lot of angry women posting comments here.

    Sure the thing is a little creepy in essence, but did anyone ever think he was just maybe justifying (largely to himself) why he was about to find another woman/outlet for his needs/spouse?

    Also, whether he is a "Cretin" or not, in publicizing this material she is obviously finished with him, and probably has been for some time. There is then also the issue of (on the surface) defamation here, I hope she has her exit finances sorted and all her ducks in a row!

    I think he also needs to pick up his game. If your partner thinks having sex with you is a chore, the problem is obviously you. Either you are selfish in bed or they're not attracted to you anymore and you need to work on that.

    Wheres the excel sheet of not having sex because of the kids! lol

    Not one person that commented mentioned even the slightest possibility that it was extremely one sided for the woman not to ever attempt to initiate sex with the man. I hate to break the news to everyone that read this article and all of the responses that seemed to have a bias towards the man being "creepy", and needing MORE compassion, etc... To the people who wrote those things, shame on you. She went two months without attempting to have sex with him. This isnt a marriage, this is an awkward friendship at best. Real friends would never let you sit there and wonder day after day why an obvious activity that two people who love on another is not being initiated or received well by the woman. Its almost amazing how blind the world can be. Wake the fuck up, this guy deserves someone who is going to meet him halfway at LEAST. Holy shit man, i almost feel like sending him money or books on selfish women and what to do. What a joke that everyone attacked him for being in the wrong. That spreadsheet he made was a cry out for help. Its raw data. Factual observation that his wife was not adding up in her head or at all for that matter. She was too busy with her shows and hitting the gym. Lets be real here for a second.. the show shes watching probably is one of he only things she looks forward to during the day, while her horny husband sits here looking like an idiot or "creep" according to the commenters of this site. I bet she would be willing to come up off of those panties for a good looking guy at the gym in a heart beat though.. just a guess, but I would even bet that she asks the gym directly for a good fuck. Best advice, watch your wife or girlfriends eyes when she in public, it will tell you everything you need to know about how interested she is in your relationship. "If her eyes wander in public, its only a matter of time before her body does" -smart men

    My girlfriend and i havent done it in nearly 3 months (is there something wrong with me?)no matter how hard or much i try... i consider this man lucky to be able to pleasure his wife, i don't get the chance.
