I am 38 years old and my boyfriend is 46. We have been dating for five months now. Our relationship is very good.

He has never given me a reason to believe that he cheats. My problem is that we hardly intimate. We have sex once every two to three weeks.

I am scared to initiate sex because I fear he will reject me. Could it be that he doesn’t find me sexually attractive?

Many couple’s sexual libido does not line up. Also, research has not shown any link between low libido and cheating. Research does however, show that a man’s libido generally decreases with age and many women experience the opposite as they age. 

Both men and women should experience ultimate sexual satisfaction and be able to enjoy their sexual partners. You have a responsibility to communicate how your feel to your partner and create an environment that allows both of you act on how you feel and experience each other fully.
