Dear Angela: My wife (41) put on so much weight that she is not happy with her body anymore. She keeps saying that she’s unattractive, but that’s not true. OK, she is overweight, but I don’t care. I love and fancy her the way she is, but she doesn’t believe me.

It’s become so bad that she doesn’t even sleep with me anymore. Whatever I try to boost my wife’s confidence, it doesn’t help. I believe that what my wife needs at this stage is another man’s attention. I’m sure it would help her to feel attractive and desired again.

Of course I don’t want to lose her to another man, so I thought I could maybe bring her to a swinger’s club. She could flirt around and I could keep an eye on her to ensure that she’s safe. Would that help?

Answer: Another man’s attention would surely boost your wife’s confidence. But with the way your wife feels at the moment, it’s unlikely that she’d agree to visit a swinger’s club. Instead of suggesting swinging, go down an easier, safer and more promising route.

Flirt with your wife, court her, bring flowers, give her loads of compliments, bring her on dates or book a romantic weekend away.

Show your wife how much you love her, and assure her how sexy and attractive she is.
