    Our libidos were about the same until semi-recently.  The stress of my terrible job has, unfortunately, spread into many other areas of my life.  Amoung them, my libido has dropped significantly.  I feel bad for Darling Husband.  πŸ™

    My husband has more of a drive than me, though mine is improving now that I’m on Nuvaring.

    I definitely have a higher drive than Darling Husband. We’re working on it though.

    @Mrs.KMM: Blah same here. Mine actually used to be higher and I was always hounding him. Now I am so stressed from work, I come home… eat dinner… sleep. REPEAT. It’s sad, and I am working on fixing that!

    My FI’s is much higher than mine, but I have chemical reasons for mine being low. Someday it’ll be high again, someday!

    Hubby’s is higher. I was also on the pill until April, though, and that definitely played a HUGE role. Hated it! Unfortunately, it hasn’t come back as much as I would have liked!

    @eloping: I’m super jealous! πŸ™‚

    Ours are about the same – I went though a “low” period recently, but am on my way back up, which is exciting!  I just wish he would initiate more – I feel like I’m always doing all the work.

    Mine’s been terrible for years, but I’ve been off BC pill four months now, and it has improved a little – hoping it’s a gradual thing as there is still quite a significant disparity between us!

    Mine is slightly higher. But his changes a lot. There have definitely been times where mine is way higher though. It oddly causes weird tension sometimes. Like, if mine is way higher than his for a period of a few days, I will start getting really antsy and snappy. I just started correlating that. LOL. Definitely something I need to work on. I never thought sex would play such a large role in a relationship until we got serious and I noticed the difference between good sex spells and bad sex spells. So weird…

    We both love sex. Fiance and I average about once a day, 3x or more in the summer when we have more time off. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner πŸ™‚

    My Fiance has more sex drive then I do by far! He would have it 3x a day if he could. I, however, have to take meds for an anxiety disorder ( thanks to a rough patch in my life a few years ago) and it just takes it away. I could go once a week while I’m taking my meds regularly but that just isn’t fair to Fiance. I feel bad about my lack of interest sometimes. Sucks that I need the medicine.

    I never thought I would find someone with an equal sex drive.  I think it is very important!
