Intimacy Problems


Has Your Relationship Lost its Passion?

It’s common for a relationship experience intimacy issues or to go through phases where one or both partners lose interest in sex.  However, when a relationship loses it passion and intimacy long term, it can cause problems in your relationship, Which is something that often leads couples to seek couple therapy.

Does your partner pull away from you? Or perrhaps they dont want to cuddle let alone have sex? Do you feel confused, hurt and rejected because of it? Perhaps you are the one who doesn’t want to be intimate with your partner? Maybe you don’t feel loved or respected by your partner, so the last thing you feel like doing is being physically close.

Intimacy is not just about sex, it’s also about the closeness a couple share in a romantic relationship, that is different to other relationships.


What Causes Intimacy Issues?

Issues with intimacy, can be simply down to the fact that sexual interest tends to ebb and flow over time. It’s not unusual for partners to have different sex drives at different stages of their relationship.

You may have reached a stage in your relationship, where you love your partner, but life together has just become predictable and stale Therefore, the intimacy has diminished or completely disappeared. This can leave either one or both of you feeling upset, hurt and rejected. If the problem is left unaddressed it an become a difficult or embarrassing subject to broach.

Along with intimacy being on the decline, feelings of resentment can start to build. This tends to happen gradually, over a period of time, where perhaps over-familiarity or complacency has set in.

This sometimes begins after you have children and your priorities change. Or it could be down to poor communication or too many arguments. This can be down to a lack of physical attraction or needs not being met. Perhaps selfish behaviours play a role and one or both of you don’t feel appreciated any more.
