When people feel betrayed, it’s important that they take time to care for themselves first so as to build a plan to create structure, reduce anxiety, and get some much needed encouragement and support.A good counselor can be instrumental in providing that support because the counselor functions as an advocate, providing validation, compassion, and clear direction.It is important for partners and spouses of those with sex addiction to take care of themselves and try to avoid the downward spiral that can threaten them.
This leads to misunderstandings and disappointments about wanting sex, initiating intimacy, and/or feeling excitement when sexual stimulation occurs.
For those wanting a meaningful, long-term relationship, see if you can find your new girlfriend in the Women Seeking Men category.
If you weren’t able to find a girl you like, don’t dismay!
Some may benefit from joining a support group of other spouses that are going through the same thing.
Dependable friends and family can also provide support, especially on those very tough days.
