I'm having a problem with a relationship. I feel I am no longer feeling attracted to my partner, but I don't know if this stems from my own issues with intimacy, being from a non-nurturing upbringing. How do I know the difference?

Good Question...
by: Don Carter

Hi Birdie,

It is my experience that when a question pops into your mind you can usually take the question mark off and put a period there making it a statement. Try that on...how does it feel?

Furthermore, the fact that you even have to ask the question confirms that you have trouble with self-awareness. Your family history also adds an index of suspicion (as if you need more, right?)

Now, what connot be confirmed at this point is whether or not you actually love this person. If I were you, I would put off making major life decisions until I had some time in therapy to sort things out for myself.

Hope this helps!
Don
