Is lack of sexual attraction the ultimate deal-breaker in a relationship? While initially other attributes attract you to your partner, sexual attraction could actually make or break your relationship. Whether or not it can develop over time is similar to a man having potential to be great; maybe it can happen, maybe it can’t.
We all like to believe there’s more to life than sex, but it matters when you’re looking for more than financial stability, love and a life partner. You can tell a person what you like until you’re blue in the face but that doesn’t mean that they’ll accept constructive criticism and be willing to build on it.
It makes you wonder what happened to couples who have sex like twice a month and just seem not to be that interested in their partner sexually. Maybe it started off as something that they both thought would develop over time, but it never blossomed, or it’s just bad.
Some people believe that a woman will settle with a man before a man settles with a lady that has not sexually attracted to because sex matters. Everyone wants to feel comfortable enough with their partner to not hide those sexual inhibitions. While cheating is a personal choice, it can also be encouraged by situations just like this.
Sexual attraction matters in any relationship, but a person’s personality can help make them more appealing in different areas which may win you over. The key to not getting caught up in “potential” is to be honest about your preferences and whether a person can accept them to not.
Why stay when you’re unhappy with the pleasures of intimacy? Don’t put yourself in a situation where you feel things will get better over time, yet the relationship has already run its course. At that point, you’re no longer interested but are still sticking around out of obligation. Would you want someone to stay with you just because they feel obligated to do so?
