Between work, kids and managing a household, it makes sense that you're feeling swamped. Your schedule doesn't leave much time for being in the mood for sex. Here's why you shouldn't feel guilt about it!
Just the thought of having a relationship where we get butterflies every single time we're with our partner puts a smile on our face; it makes us want to believe that real love is all about connecting with someone without the physical. But one thing that people don't realize is that sex actually plays a key in maintaining our relationships and making them last!
While the thought of having makeup sex after a huge fight is pretty appealing, the fact that the best sex that some of us have ever had almost always comes after a huge blow out may mean that something isn't right. And with all of the daily tasks that we have to tend to on our plates, we're not always going to have time to light candles and make love, let alone for foreplay. That's where scheduling time for routine sex comes into play!
With the amount of stuff we have on our plates everyday, it's going to take a lot more than begging to get your wife in the mood. There is nothing easy about having to balance work and taking care of the kids — all while trying to fit in time for a breather. Sex isn't an obligation. It doesn't matter how long you've been together; you have to work on the build up to get the pay off.
Deciding to finally settle down and raise a family with your soulmate is a pretty big deal. Whether you plan it or not, taking care of the kids (and your husband) pretty much becomes a full time job, which makes sneaking in sexy time like mission impossible. Lately, your marriage (and overall sex life) has seriously been lacking intimacy and it's becoming a problem. How can you get it on when you're just not in the mood?
If you're one of the lucky people who got to marry their soulmate, feeling like your heart is going to explode from happiness and love pretty much comes with the territory. But sometimes, life and work and everything that comes with having a family can get in the way and your partner might start pulling away a bit. In some cases, as times passes, you may find that he seems less interested in being intimate. Why the sudden change? What does this mean for your marriage?
There's no question that we can all use a little reassurance from time to time but constantly requiring affirmation is a major turnoff (not to mention a total hit to your partner's sex drive). If you often find yourself asking him "Does this make me look fat?" or "Do you see the roll over my jeans?", we're going to have to stop you right there because this intervention is more than necessary.

Wanting to spice up the sexual energy in your relationship is nothing to be embarrassed about; in fact, the need to find ways to get closer to your partner is completely natural. But is there a way to keep the chemistry alive from the beginning without having to struggle to reignite the flame?
When it comes to dating in the modern age, the vast amount of rules we tend to listen to and follow without question makes finding the one incredibly stressful.

Despite being one of the most popular questions asked by Ok Cupid and the rest of the online dating world, pinning down the answer isn't as easy as simply checking off an option.
