Default My Wife Is Afraid Of Me

Three years of living together and my wife is startled by my very presence. I admit it is a small place where we live but not as small to initiate that kind of reaction or produce the kind of terror in her. I do not lurk, I do not sneak, I do not burst onto a scene. If there is something I need from her or if I am just putting something away she jumps, she startles, she gasps, she clutches her heart and loses her breath. I keep on insisting that I live here with her and try to ask her who else she thinks it might be but I rarely get an answer after she regains consciousness. Am I that scary? When I walk through the house should I wear a bell around my neck? Should a telephone her before I get near her? Does this mean we aren't...(gulp) compatible?

Does she actually fear you, or do you think she might be suffering from some sort of an anxiety disorder?

I will admit that most of the time she doesn't expect me but if I enter (not pop) inside a doorway to ask her a question or something she will jump. It got to the point where I would stand in a doorway until she was finished doing what she had to do figuring that would not startle her and sure enough when she sees me it is like a horror villian showing up in a movie. She doesn't scream but she is visibly shakened. I should point out again it is just me and her in the house. Why should she be scared of me?

I've been startled by my husband before when I wasn't expecting him. It doesn't happen that frequently. I've certainly noticed an increased frequency with raised anxiety. When the man who raped my showed up at my parents house looking for me after five years, I was a LOT more jumpy because I was terrified he would find us.

if this is kind of resent maybe something is bothering her and she dosn't understand or she she dosn't know how to cope with it, mayby it is about one of her friends or something that is just boiling inside of her that she cannot grasp or understand about herself and cannot express to anyone what it is... you should talk to her not on this form...

My wife is the same way! I scare her, too. I always jokingly say, "there are two people living in this house, ya know!"

She says in her very wifely tone, "But only one of us wears deoderant and brushes our teeth!"

Talk to your inlaws. Was she startled at home as well?

Also, I think Seyorni asks an important question. If she's startled so often and so easily, it might be good to rule out any such problems.

In the meantime, make more noise on your way into the room.

I am forever talking to my perpetual cat escort as I walk around the house. No one could possibly be startled by my appearance.

You're such a caring husband. If your wife was my husband, I'd scare him every chance I could get.

I thought about this briefly but then when the incidents were happening more frequently, I figured I didn't even have to try.
