My relationship started 4 years ago. The first 8 months...I loved him to death, he loved me back.

I didn't read the sex thing as a trick. He was probably just like you and thought that together you had discovered a renewed interest in sex. It could have gone either way in either of your cases, couldn't it?

I think that so very often people talk about how great everything was at first. Of course we know that that is when you really don't even know who you've got and have built up a lot of it in your imagination. So, that part isn't surprising.

This guy sounds like he's depressed or just otherwise damaged (dry drunk, in spite of the AA meetings) or maybe he had already

Welcome to the board, Alwaysstrong, first, congratulations on your year of sobriety ~

I'm a little confused; in your opening post you said he told you he lost interest in sex two years before meeting you, which sounds like he was saying, "so sorry, but I'm bnot interested", but in your last reply you said he's been working with a doctor for the last 2.5 years on his libido issue, which sounds like he's trying to turn this around.

My apologies for misunderstanding your five years of sobriety for one.
