It happened to you. The honeymoon period seems to be over in your relationship, and you strive for more intimacy and affection for you and/or from your partner. You are thinking about the worst. My partner is no longer attracted to me or maybe he/she is having an affair.
Although these reasons may be possible, there are other explanations that may contribute to lower/lack of intimacy and/or sex, such as stress, depression, anxiety, body image issues, sexual trauma, physical limitations, addiction, lack of knowledge in technique or performance, sexual exploration/identity, and lack of communication. Conquering these and other challenges will lead to enhancing and improving your current and/or future relationships.
At Texas Counseling you will receive helpful guidance and tools to assist you in addressing issues of stress, depression, anxiety, body image issues, sexual trauma, physical limitations, addiction, lack of knowledge in technique or performance, sexual exploration/identity, sex and intimacy enhancement, and lack of communication.
