I Started A Relationship With Sex. Can It Progress To Something More Emotional?

It could.

It just depends on how you approach this and how the both of you get along.

If the both of you take the time to get to know each other whenever you meet, it could progress to something more emotional.

However, if the both of you only have sex when you meet, it’s less likely.

You need to assess the kind of relationship you have with this person.

Do both of you actually talk?

I mean, real talk, not facetious talk.

The kind of talk that is aimed towards learning more about each other.

Does this person know your favorite color or habits? Do they know much about you at all?

Have you noticed that they remember little minor details about you?

Have they tried doing meaningful things with you outside of having sex?

It could be something as mundane as going to the park and having a picnic.

In other words, do the both of you actually hang out?

If the majority of the time, the both of you engage in conversations that don’t really go anywhere and then, it’s time to have sex, this may not progress to something more emotional.

How do you feel about this person?

Do you want to learn more about them? Do you find yourself thinking about this person often?

Assess your emotions for a moment.

Now, ask yourself if you think the other person feels the same way you do about them.

There is a good chance that the answer is a negative or you are simply not sure.

These are your instincts telling you that this relationship may not be headed in the direction that you now want it to.

You may have started this relationship without much interest in something more.

But now, that has changed.

Your instincts are telling you that you are now on another level emotionally and it is not all about sex anymore.

This is a very crucial point in this relationship.

You have reached a crossroads.

You will have to make a decisive move now before you can take things any further.

That decisive move has to be that you communicate with this person and let them know exactly how you feel right now.

Yes, I know, it’s scary, but here’s the thing.

If you don’t do this now, at this moment that you are at a crossroads, the relationship will continue heading in the direction it is going right now.

Your emotions and feelings for this person will continue to grow.

You will continue asking yourself if there is more to this relationship than sex.

Eventually, you will be a mess of emotions because this person is simply not returning your affection.

As a result, the relationship isn’t going beyond what you want it to.

The person may not even be aware that you are going through all this.

Since you never let them know about how you felt, they may have maintained the status quo, thinking that it is what you wanted.

Hence, they may even be open to having a relationship that is more than just about sex.

However, they don’t know that this is something you want because you never told them.

In order to avoid this kind of pain, you need to let this person know that you are hoping for more out of this relationship than sex.

Just be honest with them and you may actually be surprised at what they tell you. The sooner you do this, the better.
