Has your sex life cooled more than you’d like? Are you feeling less connected emotionally with your partner? Have you stopped having fun all together?
Sometimes it can be hard for partners to make up after a fight or disagreement. Over time, resentment can build up and that can push you further and further apart. Disagreements are inevitable in relationships, however it’s crucial for the health of your relationship that you learn how to make up.
If you’re resenting your partner for not helping you with the laundry, it can be hard to feel safe and close. Many times, when partners can come together and support one another, their sex lives infinitely improve. On the flip side, sometimes things can become "too safe" and all the excitement can dwindle. Learning to strike the balance of safety and excitement can enliven your relationship and deepen your connection.
