Or perhaps something that feels more like a cosy pair of slippers, that’s welcoming, comforting and you always know where to find? But before you spring into action, give a few thoughts as to why your previous relationships may not have worked out as you’d hoped.
This is always a good place to start when thinking about looking for a prospective partner.
And, just as importantly, what are you looking for?
Is it rampant sex and that hypnotic rush - who cares if it all blows over?
Nobody understands a problem better than somebody who has walked a similar path.Do you find it difficult to be too close to someone else?Or perhaps you tend to find you run out of patience with their initially loveable little quirks and foibles, giving rise to a swift retreat.Family, friends, therapists and others may all have something to offer, but each have their own limitations. For sexual issues, 12-step groups can be very valuable.(I often encourage people hesitant to attend a 12-step group to read my article titled "12 Step Groups: Twelve Objections and Twelve Responses." ) However, there are lots of reasons why a person may not be willing or able to attend a support group in person.
