I call it "the cycle of life." First there is the "chase" of winning that person over. Then we date and we are all full of pins and needles, butterflies in our stomachs and we gasp at the very sight of our true love and the world is our bowl of cherries. After several months of getting to know each other, the glitter wears off a little, but should never dicipate. We may not spend every waking moment with each other as we did when we first met and that's really the way it should be. It's time to get a life! It's time to have other interests in our lives such as a hobby, sports, more education or volunteer in something you are interested in and give back to people. No better feeling than that and certainly maintaining our friendships. Sometimes it's great to go out with a group of fun-loving people and just have some great laughs. If you are in doubt about how your boyfriend feels, then ask him how he feels. NEVER second-guess a person because when we do, we're usually wrong and it can cause a lot of hurt. However, I just think that the glitter has worn off your relationship a bit and it's time to get into second gear. Have that talk with your boyfriend and try spicing up your relationship and no, it's not always about sex. Get out with friends more, do different things together and you can decide on that by asking each other what interests each of you have. Do it! Good luck Marcy
Your ex boyfriend feels he is in control and you are his even though you are no longer together. Your ex boyfriend has no right touching you! If you allow it then you are sending mixed messages to him that you are still interested in him when perhaps you are not. Tell him to keep his hands off you even if you still care for him and make him earn his right to get back into a relationship with you if that is what you want.
Because of the hormones racing around in our bodies. The sexual attraction for your preferred sex (and race) do not just stop searching for potential mates even though you already have one. It is natural to like other people even though you have a boyfriend/girlfriend. It is all a part of growing up and of being a human being. Don't be upset or worried if you feel an attraction for the opposite sex even when you are with somebody.
