how long is the 'long time' that everything is fine for?

maybe there is more stress in the persons life?

have you talked to them about it?

sometimes it can be all kind of spontaneously great initially but after a time effort (like a special night together) helps get the magic back.

OK, since no one answered, I'll do a toned down version. ok I';ll bite the bullet

I wrote and entire post of example but will keep it shorter.

I find that a fun little "shock" element whether at home, or in public, does wonders!

Great Posting!! I agree with you 100% It sure is funny though that it is all hot and heavy and then it simmers down. Ya know what that happened to me. We have been together for almost a year now. I noticed that when you do things out of the blue, I guess if your spontanious it spikes up the relationship. Just stuff that you know your parter may enjoy: Physically and Emotionally.
Ya know just out of the blue I rented a movie that I knew he'd enjoy and we watched it relaxed and after we talked and became close.

Feed the FLAME (So to speak ok I';ll bite the bullet )

I't should also be vica versa. Ya know 50~50. So you don't do all the work, but you can initiate it. (If ya know what I mean)

ok I';ll bite the bullet Love and Relationships are so strange sometimes, but that's one way how the world goes around ok I';ll bite the bullet

It's all a learning expierence.

Did this help? ok I';ll bite the bullet

BTW~Well you could walk around naked that may help ok I';ll bite the bullet

Wow........SUCH a good topic.......I have yet to find a relationship that keeps me "satisfied" that way. I just get bored. In my last relationship we got a naughty game, and that was fun, but once we played it, we never played again. I just couldn't get in the mood most of the time, and ended up forcing it. I think what the clincher was in that relationship as that I just wan't "in" the relationship. And its a bummer, he's a great guy, but I just don't "feel" it.

Which is frustrating...because there's this OTHER guy who totally gets me going, just by looking at him, but I'm not emotionally attracted to him....no fair!!!!!!

I'd have to agree with the whole sponteneity thing though. It was at least of some help in my last relationship.

Default Re: ok I\'ll bite the bullet

a year is a long time (in my book). i'm more like raynaadi, i think. for me the time is something like... 3 months. hrm.

one thing it can be about... is what is known as the 'honeymoon period'. where things can be sex sex sex and then more sex... and that can be great for a time (for people who like sex) but eventually... that doesn't happen so much anymore... because it simply can't be sustained in the face of all the boring mundane things like work and kids and football and friends etc etc etc.

another thing that it can be about is intimacy. i have problems with intimacy. i can really like someone as a friend (and not feel particularly sexually attracted to them) or i can feel really very sexually attracted to them (and not like them very much as a friend or simply not know them very well at all) but... never the twain shall meet...

i hope that gets better with therapy.

therapy might be able to help with that raynaadi. sounds like issues to do with intimacy to me. when people feel too close... then something inside you goes 'click' and you don't feel anything (as a self protective strategy). at least... that is my take on what is going on (but i might be projecting my %#@&#! onto you).

but sometimes things just seem to run down with time...

um... is it that you still do it but it has become mechanical? or is it that you aren't doing it as much as you would like? with respect to the first there are things you can do (like your taking control of the pacing etc) so you can make him work a little instead of just going through the fairly mechanical routine. if you aren't feeling so fired up anymore either... then massage or romantic dinners etc can help. delay tactics basically... so you both want it but you both have to wait. and then to make sure that it isn't mechanical. maybe... what do i know about intimacy lol.

Yeah, alexandra, you're right about it being a therapy issue. I've often thought I needed therapy for my intimacy issues. But then I wonder if I just haven't found "the one". The honeymoon stage happens in all my relationships, for about a month. Then the guy gets frustrated and leaves. Hmmmmm.
