Sexual addiction is a state of compulsive participation in sexual activity, particularly sexual intercourse despite negative consequences.
There are people who are unable to control their sexual urges, behaviours and thought and if you happen to be in a relationship with such a person, there is the need to ask yourself if you can cope with this attitude for the rest of your life.
People suffering from sex addiction can go an extra mile to hide their behaviours but there are some signs you should look out for when in a relationship.
Below are some signs that show you are dating a sex addict;
Has Issues with commitment
If your partner doesn’t have the motive of settling down any time soon or doesn’t want commitment, you should watch out. Such people marry for financial gains or status within the community but not for love.
If your partner shows this sign, it is obvious he or she is a sex addict and such relationships or marriage do not last.
Sex is his/her important need
If your partner usually brags about how long he or she can have sex or can do that several times in a day, they are selfish lovers looking for their gratification.
Be careful if your partner is unwilling to delay his own sexual urges in favour of getting acquainted with you.
Masturbates even after sex
If you just had awesome sex with your partner and fall asleep with a smile on your face but you wake up and see him beating off next to you in bed, don’t think he doesn’t find you attractive.
It obvious he is a sex addict and just can’t get enough. If a guy is masturbating compulsively, it’s because he can’t stop beating off.
If your partner has multiple individuals they are dating at any given time while keeping each of them in the dark about one another, this is a red flag.
This is tricky because a lot of guys cheat. When you suspect your partner is cheating, you are probably right. Just save yourself from future pain.
Will not take ‘NO’ for an answer
A sign of addiction is the inability to accept an unsatisfied desire. Look for persistent signs of nagging or complaining to get what they want.
For an addict, ‘NO’ has no meaning because a person who is not sexually addicted is completely capable of accepting “Sorry, I’m tired. I’m not interested. It’s too soon” and others.
If any sexual activity does not satisfy your partner sexually or emotionally, this is also another sign.
He or she does not bond with you and they forget about you as soon as they walk out of the door, this is a red flag.
If your partner is not a fan of protecting him or herself during any sexual activity, it’s obvious they don’t care about your safety.
Such people have multiple partners who also have multiple partners so be careful.
Most sex addicts live double lives. They are typically not where they say they are, that may be just the beginning of the lies.
His or her excuses are inconsistent with the facts, like citing traffic problems on a Sunday morning.
