Can Sexual Attraction Get Out of Control?

Can sexual attraction become too strong for your partner? Sometimes, when you are in a committed relationship it is easy to fall into the trap of being sexually attracted to your partner without being willing to act on those attractions. As much as you may think you’re truly in love with your partner, there’s always a chance that your partner doesn’t feel the same way about you sexually. If you have become too sexually attracted to your partner and find yourself engaging in activities outside of the relationship, you may want to re-examine your relationship.

Can sexual attraction become too strong for your partner to handle? First, you must make sure that your partner feels as though he or she has come to a place where they can be “satisfied with who they are.” You must take steps to ensure that your partner feels as though their sexuality is respected and appreciated. It is difficult for many men and women to feel that they are complete just as they are inside, so it is important that you respect the feelings of your partner and work to create a loving and fulfilling relationship.

Another way to prevent a sexless marriage or relationship is to make sure that you eliminate any sexual attractions that exist between you and your partner. If you feel as though you are physically attracted to someone and it is interfering with having a healthy intimate relationship with that person, talk to them about it. There’s nothing wrong with you being sexually attracted to someone and not wanting to act on that. However, if you place that attraction above all other things in your life, then that will often times lead to unhealthy intimacy in a relationship.

Can sexual attractions lead to unhealthy intimacy? This is a good question and one that I would pose to my clients. First, the physical aspect of your attraction can certainly lead to unhealthy intimacy. After all, when you meet someone new, do you engage in physical foreplay and do you take the time to discuss what your future holds with that individual? Of course not! Most people take the opportunity of a new romance or sexual encounter to engage in a more intimate level of communication.

However, sexual attraction is only one component of your overall emotional connection with another person. Remember, two people develop these deeper emotions through the course of a relationship or marriage. In fact, most of the time, when two people first come together in a romantic situation, those feelings of romance and desire usually come to the surface because those emotions are already present. That does not mean that they haven’t been building these feelings up, it just means that now the focus is on developing those feelings into something else. However, if those same feelings of love and passion are present but there is no emotional connection to that person, it could very well be that you have become too physically attracted to that person to be able to share your deepest emotions with that person.

In many ways, this is what will happen when you become overly attracted to the object of your affections. You may find yourself wanting to spend every waking moment of your life with that person and that may very well happen if you meet someone that you fall in love with. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t work to create an emotional bond to that person. You can still become physically attracted, but you need to learn how to balance that desire for the object of your affections with the desire to develop a deeper emotional connection with that person. Believe it or not, you can still find the man or woman of your dreams and it starts by allowing yourself to slow down and take some time to develop your emotional relationship with that special someone.
