My boyfriend and I have totally different values when it comes to sex. I love it, need, and want it quite often. He, on the other hand, says it's not that important to him. I feel he never really feels sexual towards me.
The first month of our relationship I felt he was so into me sexually. Now, I feel like he's only having sex to please me but a lot of times he doesn't seem into it, and loses his erection.
He sometimes blames me for putting so much pressure on him. I don't feel I'm the problem. I feel like love and sex do not go hand in hand for him.
My question is, what do we do? He's going to see a therapist but, how long is too long for trying? I love him so much and he tells me I'm the one and the love of his life. I just want a normal sex life. I don't want it 7 times a week or anything. I just want him to be into it as much as I am.
I feel so undesirable. What do I do?
