When passion and sex are no longer spontaneous, what do you do? Do you wait around and wait for the passion and spontaneity to “just happen” or do you take action and make it a priority with your partner.
Here are some tips to consider when you are trying to rekindle your sexual intimacy or wanting to maintain it over the long-term.
We know that it is natural for sexual desire and passion to naturally dip in long-term relationship; but, there are also some transitions in life that may lead to a change in sex drive and passion.
Holding onto a sexual intimacy and passion in a long-term relationship can naturally become difficult. What I have seen while working with couples, is that passion naturally ebbs and flows.
Part of fighting fair and with respect is also knowing when you need to agree to disagree. Some disagreements will not have a solution, mainly due to you and your partner being two individual people and having your own beliefs. Know that this is okay and totally normal!!
You have learned the importance of recognizing your emotional triggers and finding healthy ways to manage these during a “timeout.” But who is supposed to initiate the conversation after the time out? What do you do when you come back to the conversation with your partner in order to solve the issue? And what happens if things get heated again?
