The thing with sex is that you can't always tell when it's just a rut or when you're sexually incompatible. I mean, at first glance they both look similar—lack of sex, frustration, etc.—but there are a few differences. So before you make any rash decisions, ask yourself: is the sex just getting boring (but fixable!) or are you and your partner sexually incompatible?
Ah, yes. The hymen. That tiny little membrane that supposedly covers our lady parts. Let's clear a few things up, shall we? You might have grown up believing that whole urban legend about the hymen "ripping" or "breaking" during first intercourse, and as a result, there was going to be some major pain involved. Turns out that just isn't the case, folks.
OMG! Can you believe it’s over!? It seems like just yesterday that 25 scantily clad ladies strutted out of a limo and into Brad Womack’s life. After all this time, Brad finally whittled it down to two: Chantal and Emily—two ladies about as opposite as they come. Chantal is brunette, buxom and bubbly. Emily is blonde, underfed and reserved. Both are sweet girls, and I’m guessing people are split down the middle on who should get the ring. It’s not like in Jake’s season when it was clear he should have chosen Tenley but went with Vienna instead (and we all know how well that worked out).
When it came to bedding guys, I used to be happily hedonistic. I might still be like that somewhere inside, but I'm not really sure; my long-term desires of commitment, love, marriage and children are clouding that hedonism a little bit. But I do know when Ex-Mr. Jessica and I broke up, the idea of being intimate with other men whom I didn't have a shared sense of intimacy and a love connection with made me viscerally repulsed. The idea of having sex with someone whose children you would carry if you accidentally got knocked, to having casual sex for fun (or "fun"), was too much for me. I still think it is too much for me.

Don't marry this guy. You aren't in love with him. If anything is clear in your letter, it's that. You are not in love with this guy. And you know what? You'll be fine without him. As long as you've been together, it must be scary to think about not being with him anymore, but as much time as you spend on your own, you have to know you'll be okay by yourself.
