"I still love my boyfriend deeply but I've gone from enjoying sex to dreading it. What's wrong?"
I'm 21 and have been with my boyfriend for three years. But while I still love him deeply, I've gone from enjoying sex to dreading it. He doesn't pressure me but when we have it, I don't enjoy it.
Why am I feeling like this? We're both confused. Should I end it?
It could be that your relationship has moved from love to friendship but I suspect all that's happened is you've moved out of the stage when all you needed to become aroused was the thought of sex.
Three years in, you need to work to keep yourselves interested by introducing variety and pushing yourselves out of the routine you've no doubt settled into. Buy a few good sex books and choose some things you'd both like to try. Try having sex in different places in the house and location. Try out some new sex toys.
In other words, give your sex life a bit of a shake up. Give it three months and see if things improve. If they don't, it could be you're still in love with him but it's platonic not romantic.
