A sex therapist explains how to deal with sexual incompatibility. Your new guy is just about perfect. He takes you on fun dates. He makes you laugh.
If Sex Isn't Good At First, Is Your Relationship Doomed? (Spoiler: No.)
I Would Put Up With Bad Sex If It Meant A Good Relationship
By Sherri for DivorcedMoms. I once had a friend whose relationship with her husband was the envy of every woman I knew. They were best friends, rarely fought, had similar interests, and yet they still made time for their own hobbies and friends. It seemed to everyone on the outside that they were perfect.
You might feel more like roommates than lovers, more like a parent than a partner. You might cringe when your partner touches you or postpone going to bed because you can't stand having "that fight about sex" one more time. You might feel used sexually by your spouse, or you might feel like your partner rejects you sexually. A sexually unfulfilling relationship is a quiet, insidious poison.

Where there is love, respect, and an equal amount of self-awareness and good humour, there too, exists the possibility of sizzling clinches and tender intimacies.
