When you first start dating someone, and you’re in that honeymoon phase when you both know you’re into each other, you aren’t dating other people, but everything is still new and exciting, nothing can get in the way of your sex life. You just won’t have it. If you know you have seven minutes until the Uber arrives, you’ll have sex. If you need to wake up in four hours, you’ll have sex. If every dish is still dirty from the dinner you made, you’ll get it on. You’re late to just about every occasion because you were doing the deed. Sex comes before everything else at the start of a relationship. Later, after you’ve been together for several years, the complete opposite becomes true. Everything comes before sex. Once you’ve built a life together, things just…change. There is always something demanding your attention or energy and sex can fall to the wayside. If you’ve been with your partner for a while then you know: here are things that interfere with a sex life in a long-term relationship.

Sleep schedules

You just don’t get it on unless you’re working with the same sleep schedule. If you aren’t, then one person is already fast asleep while the other one is just getting home and starting to make dinner. Nobody stays up, waiting for the other anymore. And being woken up early for morning sex? That just causes a fight.
