Did you type "sexless relationships" into the search engine, in desperate hope of finding a way to deal with your relationship?
You are here because you've taken the sexless marriage quiz and to no surprise, find yourself in a situation that isn't what you ever expected.
Is lack of intimacy in your relationship driving you crazy?
Are you at your wits end?
Did you find the perfect person to spend the rest of your life with, only to one day discover the intimacy has slipped away (or vanished completely)?
If it makes you feel any better, you are definitely NOT alone in this journey. Sadly, there are many other couples just like you.
Common everyday things like work, raising kids, stress, routines, sports and chores can play a huge role in pushing intimacy right out the window in some relationships.
So How Do YOU Deal With A Sexless Relationship?
The Best Method, although not the easiest thing to do when you're
angry, upset or frustrated is communicate. Absolutely NOTHING
will ever change unless you and your partner are able to talk about
it. You can't fix the problem without your partner.
If you want your relationship to change (and it can), make it a priority in your relationship to start talking about it. And the sooner the better! The best place to start this type of conversation, is OUTSIDE of your bedroom.
You can start by telling your partner that making love is an important part of a relationship. And that it's not just about the physical gratification - (masturbating can take care of that.)
Making love is about the emotional connection, and nurturing of a relationship between two people that are committed and love each other.
Take Time For Non-Sexual Intimacy
Are both of your lives so busy with other things, that you forget to
set time aside to just re-connect? A successful relationship takes work - a lot of work. If you aren't investing in your relationship non-sexually, it becomes increasingly harder to enjoy the sexual side of intimacy.
So what can you do to get your relationship back on track?
It may take a little reminiscing about the past. Think about the times when you were first together ... Dating, Kissing, Hugging, Cuddling, Caressing ... Has that all ceased to exist?
Make it a priority to set time aside for each other at least once a week (if not more). Find new things to do together, try something thrilling, adventurous or spontaneous. Break away from your usual routine as much as you can.
If you want to get your "mojo" in gear, invest in all areas of your relationship together.
If you're living in a sexless relationship and wish to turn it around, Kate Dixon & Dean Mason - Relationship Authors of Fix Your Sexless Marriage, have written two
books (one targeted to women & one just for men).
They are written with a unique understanding of the emotional process that you are going through living in your sexless relationship.
Intimacy is the "glue" that keeps a relationship together.
