I recently started dating a guy I have been friends with for several years. He is smart, fun to be around, and we connect emotionally. But having sex with him feels so strange that I just can’t enjoy it. In all my previous relationships, we couldn’t get out of bed for months at the beginning. This seems unlikely to happen here, as I now can’t wait to leave the bedroom and make the weirdness stop. Does this relationship have a chance? On paper, things are amazing, and in every other way he’s exactly what I want. Could this get better?
