No in­ter­est in women

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - WEEKENDTV -

I’ve lost my in­ter­est in women com­pletely and I’ve been sin­gle my whole life.

It doesn’t re­ally bother me; I’m not gay but I’ve just lost in­ter­est in any­thing sex­ual be­cause of be­ing heart­bro­ken through­out my life and I think that might have some­thing to do with it.

Should I just not date and be sin­gle be­cause it wouldn’t make me happy or should I just have women that are friends? FIONA SAYS: ARE YOU RE­ALLY BE­ING HON­EST ABOUT YOUR FEEL­INGS? You say you’ve lost in­ter­est in women and in the next sen­tence you say it doesn’t bother you — but it clearly does.

I can­not help but won­der about one thing, and that’s where you tell me you’re not gay and link that to say­ing you’ve lost in­ter­est in any­thing sex­ual.

Is that per­haps at the root of your prob­lem? Is your lack of sex­ual in­ter­est in women be­cause you’re deny­ing your feel­ings for men? Is there some­thing about your back­ground that would make it very difficult for you to be gay?

I’d cer­tainly en­cour­age you to have lots of friends who are women and lots of friends who are men — but also to be hon­est with your­self about what you do want.

By the sounds of it, that means you want to be in a re­la­tion­ship with some­one who cares about you and who you care for.

I think you might need some coun­selling, so you un­der­stand your own feel­ings a lot bet­ter than you seem to at present.

Con­tact Re­late (www.re­late.org.uk) and speak to a coun­sel­lor to help you sort out ex­actly what you’re try­ing to find in life.
