Is it me?

My boyfriend used to be super affectionate and always wanted to have sex with me. But in the past couple months, he's devoting more time to his gaming device than to me. And when I ask him to turn it off and spend time with me, he doesn't say anything- like he can't hear me! I'm going crazy. This was the same problem with my ex-fiancé. I was hoping that that would never happen again, but it's like a vicious cycle. I practically beg him and he either ignores me or laughs like I'm just being cute. Is it me? I'm worried that I'm going to end up cheating on him or leaving him, and I really don't want to do that- I love him so much. We've been together for a while now, and this JUST STARTED. It's as though he woke up one day and realized he doesn't want to be intimate with me- just his XBox. What can I do before I start ripping my hair out?

You need to ask yourself-"What attracted me to him?" The second question you must ask yourself-"Where is this relationship going?" Is there more to this relationship than sex? Do you and your boyfriend share interests?
Instead of pulling your hair out, you need to be very honest with yourself.
You say that you love your boyfriend, yet he enjoys playing video games rather than spend time with you. Is this really what you want? Maybe, it is time to move on and start over.
