The ver­dict

Essentials (South Africa) - - RELATIONSH­IPS -

Hav­ing sex ev­ery day was ex­haust­ing, and most days I wasn’t re­ally in the mood, though I al­ways en­joyed it once we got go­ing. But there’s no doubt it’s brought us much closer. Men use sex the way women use con­ver­sa­tion to be in­ti­mate, and this week has re­ally made a dif­fer­ence to the way Erik and I in­ter­act. We both re­alised you can’t just wait for the urge to strike you – you have to make the ef­fort to find time for each other. We’ve de­cided to sched­ule a date night at least once a week, and stick to it. I’m al­ready look­ing for­ward to next week­end. It’s all too easy to put sex on the end of a long list of chores but, from now on, it’s go­ing to be a lot closer to the top of my list.
