Posted by on December 3, 2019 in Relationships & Sex with 0 Comments

When you are in a long-term relationship, it can be comforting and make you feel safe and secure. However, there are also some problems you may experience when you have been together for some time, one of which is in relation to your physical relationship. When couples first get together, the physical side of the relationship is often passionate and exciting. However, this can start to go awry for various reasons.

If you find that your physical relationship is suffering but you still love and are attracted to your partner, there are various things you can try. The cause of the slump in your physical relationship will have an impact on the best solution for you. So, it is important to think about what might be causing the issue and how you can resolve it. In this article, we will look at some of the possibilities.

Possible Causes and Solutions

One major cause of a reduction in intimacy and excitement in the bedroom is the fact that things have just become stale. This is something that happens to huge numbers of couples, and it doesn’t mean that you are no longer attracted. It simply means it may be time to switch things up and try something different. For instance, you can look at intruding sex toys to your bedroom activities, which can help to add some sparkle and excitement.

Another possible issue is that you simply do not have enough time together, and what little time you do get you are too tired to do anything but rest and sleep. Lack of time to enjoy intimacy can have a big impact on your physical relationship, and with the fast pace of life most of us have to cope with these days, it affects huge numbers of couples. To try to get things back on track, you should consider booking the odd weekend or short break away, where you can escape from the stress of daily life and spend some quality time together. Also, try to arrange a weekly date night where just the two of you get to spend time together.

Communication and lack of honesty can also have an impact on your physical relationship. While this is not a physical problem as such, trust among couples can be lost very easily and not communicating can add to this problem. If you no longer speak to one another as couples should, you will find it very difficult to be intimate with one another. Your partner should not just be your lover but also your best friend, and we all speak to and confide in our best friends. If you find that you struggle to communicate with your partner or that they struggle to do the same with you, it may be worth seeing a counselor.

By taking some time to see a counselor, you can work your way through communication problems with far greater ease. Having someone unconnected with you means you are more likely to get to the root of the problem. Also, in this type of setting you will have no choice but to communicate while you are with the counselor. Once you can identify the barrier that is coming between you, you will find it much easier to make a difference and start communication with each other properly.

There is one other thing you need to consider, and that is medical or biological reasons. If one partner or the other has gone off intimacy or is unable to be intimate, there could be a more deep-rooted issue than the ones outlined above. So, it is well worth considering a trip to the doctor or even a referral to a counselor if you feel this may help. There are various different medical and biological issues that can affect your physical relationship but if you are keen to get things back on track, it is important to tackle these problems rather than burying your head in the sand.

Taking Action Sooner Rather than Later

As you can see, there are lots of possible reasons why the physical side of your relationship may be suffering. The above provides an insight into just a few of these possible causes. If there are problems with your physical relationship, it is important to take action sooner rather than later.

The earlier you act, the easier it will be to identify the issue and to take action. If you simply let things fester, you will most likely drift further and further apart, not just in terms of your physical relationship but also the close bond and emotional ties that come with a relationship. So, if you want to get things back on track when it comes to your intimacy and physical relationship, consider some of the solutions outlined above.
