Dating a sex addict preity zinta saif ali khan dating

I felt that meant the risk of relapse was too great, so I left.I have been dating a guy, on and off, for two years and he and I have an explosive sex life.

Eight years into her marriage, Rachel started to wonder if her husband had lost interest in sex.

“He’d always go to bed later than me and often made excuses when I brought it up,” explains the 41-year-old.

Joy Rosendale, a sex-addiction therapist specialising in partner work, instigated the first one in the UK back in 2005, following her own experiences.

“Although there is usually huge reluctance for partners to seek help, let alone come into a group, because of the privacy and shame, something happens in these groups that liberates these women – and I say women because in my experience, it is usually women who access them,” says Rosendale, who still runs the group at the Marylebone Centre, London.

“So when he sat me down one day to tell me he was a sex addict, I actually laughed – although I soon stopped when he disclosed night upon night of watching pornography for hours on end and numerous short-lived affairs.

My life fell apart.” Sex addiction hurts partners in a way that no other addiction can, says Paula Hall, who has written a book on the subject.

Couples who make it work generally take a three-pronged approach, says Hall.

“First, the addict goes into recovery on their own to work out causes and develop relapse prevention strategies.

Rosendale starts each 12-week support group by educating the women about sex addiction.

“One of the points of this group is to depersonalise it.

“It could involve sex with a partner, but it may also mean activities such as viewing pornography, masturbation, visiting prostitutes or using sex chat lines,” it explains, claiming that while for most people such habits don’t cause problems, sex addicts are unable to control these urges and actions.
