My boyfriend and I have been dating for about two years. We just moved in together and he was very excited and I was hopeful that I would work very well. However, since the move it is difficult to get him to have sex with me. Most of the time, I have to beg him (which I hate doing) and this makes him feel bad so he has sex with me. But because of that, I don't even enjoy it.
I am still very attracted to him and tell him often how handsome I think he is. Lately, he has not given me any compliments at all. I try to wear outfits around the house that I know he likes to get him to respond but I get nothing. He had made a comment once that "Bones are for dogs," poking at the fact that I am too skinny. But he said that he still thinks I'm beautiful and loves me. I believe him but I am becoming increasingly annoyed and frustrated with this situation. I get angry at him very easily and I am afraid that it is going to ruin our living arrangements.
I am trying my best to understand the possibilities. I am a full time student and work as often as I can and he works full time as well. We also have a dog that we're responsible for and I admit I am usually exhausted at the end of the day. However, I would set my exhaustion aside if he would jump in bed with me but he will not do the same.
I'm really starting to worry and it's consuming all of my time. I get very emotional about it because I try very hard to stay in shape despite my busy schedule. I get approached by guys when I go out all of time time but I am not interested in any of them except my boyfriend. Am I cheating myself? I love him dearly and I know he loves me back but a healthy attraction and sex life is very important to me in a relationship. Would I be brash to say this could be a major factor in whether we will stay together?
