Our expert says:
A discrepancy in sexual desire is nor uncommon ins relationships. It is however important to find a balance between the two parties’ needs rather than one to completely downplay your own needs. The fact that you have been in a relationship where your needs were not met and you are once again is a relationship where you are heading the same way – it might be worth it for you to seek professional advise and guidance. Getting the two of you to understand one another’s needs and finding ways to accommodate one another is crucial for the positive outcome of a long term relationship. Making sacrifices on the short term often does not seem so hard but in the long run it creates the breeding ground for resentment. Sex is not the be all and end all, but it is an important factor – the cement of an intimate relationship and without that the bricks tend to be just stacked with nothing to weather the storms.
