There are numerous reasons why your girlfriend or boyfriend might stop being interested in sleeping and being intimate with you. Reasons can range from stress to cheating. Let’s look at some of these reasons.
Your boyfriend or girlfriend doesn’t feel the same kind of attraction as before
If he or she started to lose attraction, they desire to sleep with you will also diminish. They are probably still like you but they are debating on what to do next. At this point, your options are either to try to spark the attraction again or end the relationship.
You partner is stressed or depressed
If they are depressed, their sexual drive will be significantly lower because it is proven fact that stress reduces the production of hormones that are responsible for the desire to have sex. If you suspect that this is the case, talk to you partner and try to help them. In some cases, you might have to wait until their problem is resolved, however, if depression doesn’t go away, an intervention from psychologist might be required
You boyfriend or girlfriend have an affair or, at least, thinking about it
If your partner is cheating on you, they will decrease the number of intimate encounters you both have. They might still like you but they probably don’t feel physical attraction to you or they feel bad about sleeping with you after cheating. If you are sure that your partner is cheating, in most case the smartest thing to do is to break up a relationship. Not many couples can have a happy life together after either of them cheated.
He or she is trying to tell you something
Some people will use sex to get a point across. Maybe they don’t like your behavior or there is something that you did that negatively affected their opinion of you. In this cases having an open conversation with your partner might resolve the issue.
Your girlfriend or boyfriend is not satisfied with your performance in bed
This is an extreme case but it is possible that you partner is losing interest in sleeping with due to your lack of performance. I am not going to go into details on what to do in this case, but if you like you can find lots of information or even tutorials on other sites.
Us with any relationship issue, before making any irrational decisions such blaming you partner for something they didn’t do (ex. Cheating), it is better to have an open conversation. You might even find out that your partner doesn’t even realize that amount of intimate encounters between you two decreased.
