Our expert says:
It is difficult to destinguish the difference between no longer being attracted to someone (i.e. they don't suit you in general, not just in sexual terms/feelings) and still really liking the person but finding that your libido has diminished (i.e. you find it more difficult to become aroused because your desire is reduced). It is quite common that in the beginning of relationship women may have a greater interest in sex and possibly be less inhibited in sex than her 'default' position would be. This is due to chemicals in the brain which are released in the beginning of a relationship - amongst other things they result in slightly higher testosterone levels in women which may account for higher sex drive. Unfortunately due to a cruel trick of nature these changes are temporary and after a while (between 6months - 4 years) she returns to a more 'normal level'.
I am concerned that you have to drink alcohol to want sex - something is going on and it sounds like you really need to try to figure out what it is...are you losing interest in him as a person, or are you struggling with reduced desire...?
