I’ve lost my sex drive. I’m only in my mid forties so what’s wrong with me? I’m freaking out. I’ve always had such a healthy sex life and suddenly it’s all come to a standstill. I just don’t feel it anymore. My girlfriend is getting fed up with me. I can tell. What should I do?
Sometimes this happens – to the best of us. The main thing is to relax and don’t focus on the ‘can’t’ or it will likely get worse. Take a break because for some reason your body is asking you to. Talk to your girlfriend about it. Honesty is the best policy. She’ll understand and stand by you, if she’s worthy. You should also try to experiment together sexually. Spice things up and see if that triggers your arousal. The main thing is not to panic or think too much about it. If it persists, go and see your doc or a sex therapist. There is help if you can’t find a solution on your own. Good luck.
I’ve been with my boyfriend for five years. We are solid, or at least that’s what I thought. But lately he’s really been getting awkwardly close to my best friend. It happens she spends a lot of time with us because we all get along well, but I’m really uncomfortable with the level of flirting they are both doing. What should I do?
For starters, you are not the third wheel. You got there first, remember? You had better have a heart to heart with your girlfriend as well as your boyfriend – separately. Find out what’s going on and tell them how you feel. Get to the bottom of it. By the way, let your girlfriend know there are plenty of other fish in the sea so she should drop her line somewhere else.
