Is my partner’s inability to achieve an erection an indicator that he’s no longer attracted to me?
When your man is suddenly unable to perform in the bedroom, it’s difficult not to take it a little personally. After all, if he can’t get aroused anymore, that means you’re not arousing him anymore, right? Feelings of resentment and doubt may begin to build, until you’re ready to explode on him for no longer loving you.
But it’s not as cut and dry as your partner no longer finding you attractive. There are many factors that can contribute to erectile dysfunction, including heart disease, psychological hang-ups, and weight gain. Your partner may not know what’s causing this sudden loss of erection, and it could be downright scary.
So when your man suddenly finds himself consistently unable to perform, don’t feel inadequate or get accusatory. This is a tough spot to find yourself in, and your partner is going to need all the support he can to overcome this problem.
Sit down with your partner and talk about what might be causing this issue. Is he stressed at work? Stressed at home? Does he feel guilty about something? If you can’t get to the root of the issue, it’s time to turn to the professionals. A doctor or psychologist can help your partner to figure out the reason behind his ED, which will put him on the road to overcoming the affliction.
So, if your man suddenly isn’t able to perform like he used to, don’t take it personally. It has nothing to do with his feelings about you. He finds you just as attractive as he always has, and he’ll need your help to fight this problem.
