Discover Life Phases


Sex, relationship and dating can be simple or complicated depending upon how much is worked out.

Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts in infancy, in the form of early child-care. All exists because of the desire of being loved, cherished and needed. And, then there are Romantic relationships, yes the one that makes you dance on the street, makes you all happy and energetic, makes you cry and feel jealous, feel heartbreak and despair. We often are bogged down by questions like How to spice up my sexual life?, How to keep the energy levels high? or How to ignite the lost passion?, Do everyone goes through this or is it just happening to me? And can we have a relationship without sex?

Frequently Asked Questions

It is absolutely okay. Given that the society has formed the compulsion of people being in a relationship or family, it can feel difficult. But it is completely fine.

The best way is to get in touch with the emotions and feelings of the partner. Find out if your partner is interested or not interested in sex. Try to check your compatibility. See if you are comfortable in trying different things

It depends if you are okay with it. There is nothing wrong with polyamory, but if you feel uncomfortable, you need to voice the opinion.
