I am new to this site and I joined thinking that maybe I could get some answers to my problem, which I am too embarrassed to discuss with anyone I know.

My boyfriend and I have been together for 4 years. When we first started dating, we had sex all the time (which is usually the case when you meet someone new).

About a year or so ago we got a dog... she was a 2 month old puppy when we adopted her so she required a lot of attention and care. When we would both get home at night, instead of cuddling on the couch and being intimate, we would dedicate all our time to this new member of the family.

Weeks turned into months and now it has been a little over a year and I can honestly say that within this time we have only had sex maybe 10 times. It started with the dog, but I feel that it has turned into something else.

When we HAVE had sex, it turns into something awkward, not romantic. I am to the point where I am almost dreading it because it now feels strange.

I really need some help or opinions on this. I love my boyfriend to death, and I know he loves me too, but I don't want to continue on this path.


Thanks...
