Reasons for Staying Together Despite a Lack of Physical Attraction Ask most long-term married couples about the relative importance of sex in their lives, they will generally say things like “It’s the dessert, not the main course”. By 67, you’re thinking of retirement, travel and grandkids. Can you see how making a decision based on attraction is a perfect example of short-term thinking?
Like getting a tattoo with someone’s name on your back and breaking up four months later.
When you focus on more important characteristics beyond attraction you give yourself the best chance of finding the love you dream of.
When you connect with a man who tries to see you at least once a week, stays in touch by phone and text, is willing to compromise and work things through, and has a similar long-term agenda as you do, then you know you are getting close.
Fact: In relationship studies, traditional “attraction” wears off within 18-24 months of dating.
This probably corresponds to what you’ve experienced in real life – namely, that it’s hard to get “excited” about someone with whom you’ve been intimate for two years straight. Does this mean that you should stay with your amazing boyfriend even if you don’t feel attracted?
Physically, I find he is not a “match” for me and I am not proud of being so shallow.
Attraction is the big X Factor in any relationship. I urge you to consider this before taking any rash steps. But realize that in 10 years, you’re 37, raising little ones and your life is no longer your own. By 57, you’re probably finishing menopause and his libido is largely gone.
So if life becomes more about responsibility, friendship, compatibility and all those other “boring” things that old married couples cite, how much emphasis should we put on physical attraction in our 20’s/30’s? If there is NO attraction to start, there’s not even any room to go down.
It is no secret that compatibility is a stronger predictor of relationship health than chemistry. That’s a rough proposition for you to endure with a boyfriend.
But I am not sure if I should be making plans with a man I don’t feel much attraction for.
I decided to tell him the truth about my feelings and he said he will take all the steps necessary to improve himself physically as he doesn’t want to lose me. Is he really the man of my life if physically I don’t like him the way he is?
The real problem is that I don’t find him attractive.
