I'm in a sexless relationship and I wonder why?

We have been together (if you can even call it that) for over 5 months. In the start we had sex up to three times daily, but that stopped after a few weeks. So then I moved in with him and it's looking like it's sex once a month. I know sex isn't everything, but I am wondering what the problem is. Every other week he does work long days so I'm thinking it may be stress. Or maybe he is self-conscious because he isn't at a weight he likes (yet, not obese, just a gut). He's 30. I also noticed he doesn't really like showing affection or even being kissed or touched. It really hurts my self-esteem sometimes because I don't feel loved or important.

Any thoughts ladies?

Is it just that, or are there other issues? I know that men with Asperger's can be like this. It might be worth a google search.
All the best!

Hi loubeau and welcome to EmpowHER!

Your question is one that many women have. You can get some great answers from Dr. Gail Gross in her article for the EmpowHER community, "Why Doesn't He Want to Have Sex With Me?"

Hope that helps!
