Is your partner a sex addict?? Find out with these 7 signs!
This might sound as not a big problem to you. You might even think to yourself, who wouldn’t want to have their life a little bit more involved with sex than others. True! But that is not the case here. Sex addiction is not only associated with being too much interested in sex. There is a lot more to it. It is a lot more serious than you would know about deep down if you are with one; you only do not want to admit it. You might even be in a relationship like this and still be unaware of it.
Joe Kort, a sexual addiction therapist and a doctor of sexology, said: “The sex addict’s impulse is to cover the pain of feeling damaged, whereas the opportunist’s impulse is to take whatever he can get without having remorse. Sex addicts feel very guilty and ashamed of their behavior, and greedy individuals do not”. To help you realize the bitter truth, we are going to give you a list of telltale signs.

Won’t take "No" for an answer
We all have had those days that the mood was off so nothing could perk us up, not even sex! Some days just are not our days and if you are dating a sex addict that is not an option! Jianny Adamo, LMHC, founder of Fearless Love Coaching and Counseling, said: “A sign of addiction is the inability to accept an unsatisfied desire. Look for persistent signs of nagging, pursuing, or complaining to get what they want.”
Girls may be offended and hurt by this behavior because they might think “I am here?!” but remember that these people are sex addicts so there is nothing in them that can be controlled. Or they are not trying to solve the problem. After having sex with him multiple times already, you fall asleep thinking that body-wise, you are a perfect match but then wake up to him giving himself a pleasure.

You might think that cheating is something that may happen in any kinds of relationship and that does not mean that the person is a sex addict. You might be right but read this paragraph completely before jumping to the conclusion. Brian Whitney, a sex addict, wrote: “At my worst, I was carrying on three or four relationships at once outside of my primary one. When you suspect your partner of cheating, you’re probably right. You’re also probably furious.”
“When you cool down a bit, this is the time not only to confront him but to dig a little deeper. This might save you both a lot of pain in the future.”
Elementsbehavioralhealth.com says: “Cheating is unfortunately not uncommon, and most people cheat for reasons that have nothing to do with sex addiction. However, people with sexual addiction are often repeated cheaters who may even be carrying on multiple sexual relationships at one time outside their primary relationship.”

Mood swings or instead of that we can use the term, single-minded. All they ever think about is sex. They are obsessed, preoccupied with the thought of having sex so even if they see you in a sad and depressing mood, instead of comforting you, they start whispering sexual comments in your ear. Or they would just go ahead and start doing it. As they do not take a No for an answer.
That is a dark humor! Joking around when it comes to some obvious sexual references is fine. We all do that and that does not make us any less of a normal human being than others but this is taking it to another level. As it is written on elementsbehavioralhealth.com these people make sexual comments and jokes in order to get to know if the person they are talking to is interested or not so that they may make a move later on.

Weird sex appeals
Fifty Shades of Grey is not exactly the perfect example of how a romantic man is supposed to be, it is more of how a sex addict will lead! There are some sexual desires for them that might sound interesting and even charming for you at the very beginning but that is the trial and error time; as the time goes by, you get to know which you like and which you do not. If after that phase, his sexual request freaks you out, he is a sex addict!
You think he might be a one
Brian Whitney wrote: “You may assume, after all you’ve been through, that he won’t be receptive to talking, but you have some influence here. If you come at him with “You f****** a**h*le, I know you cheated on me,” you won’t get an honest response. But if you can find it within yourself to ask if he has a problem, and letting him talk about it without shaming him, he may surprise you.”
