Well, there’s no guaranteed remedy (unfortunately), but you can take some steps to protect yourself, even while you’re cleaning up those gross little balls of used tissue your partner has left lying around.
So they start dating someone to cuddle up with in the cold. But what happens when spring hits? Will the relationship see April?
You think that you're just a normal couple, wandering through life, and then suddenly a friend catches you asking your boyfriend to check your nose for boogers and you wonder... how did we get here?
Whether it's erotica or straight up porn, there's a lot to be said for doing some exploring just for the sake of it.
So if your partner seems to take those jealous feelings (or needy feelings or controlling feelings) and thinks it's your job to act in a way that soothes or plays into them, something may be wrong.
And to be honest, everyone I know has been really selfish at times, myself very much included.
If your partner thinks you're cheating — even if you're not— they may not address it in the most constructive or mature of ways.
So for some people it may cause anxiety in the bedroom, for some it may mean you don't even want to have sex at all, and for some it can mean an inability to focus.
It's nothing to be ashamed of — there's no "normal" sex drive to have and there's nothing wrong with wanting or not wanting sex on any given day.
But it's important to understand how money — including how much you both make — can affect your relationship.
