What To Do If Your Partner Stops Caring About Sex

Ashley Batz/Bustle

Sex drives come and go. You can find yourself riding a wave of wanting it all the time for months and months, then find yourself in a slump, without much interest in sex at all. Since that can be the case for you, that, of course, can also be the case for your partner. It happens and it's normal; no one can be at the top of their sex drive game all the time forever and ever.

But when your partner stops caring about sex, it's hard not to take it personally; it's hard not to wonder if it has something to do with you even if you know deep down this isn't about you. While there are many reasons why someone may become disinterested in sex, it's important to realize that, for the most part, it's about something greater than the physical aspect of sex. In other words, it's not necessarily about you or your relationship, so it's important to be supportive during this time. It's an issue that needs to be tackled together with openness and zero ridicule.

So what should you do if your partner stops caring about sex? Here's what bestselling author and relationship expert Susan Winter recommends.
