Hi and welcome to JustAnswer. I am Therapist Jen.  How long are you together? Sometimes after being together for some time, connection and sexual intimacy may wane, but with some work by both of you, the connection can be established again. You might want to create some fun times similar to things you did at the start of the relationship or involve yourselves in new "adventures " together to stimulate closeness and fun.

We have been together for 3 years now. Very hard to think of things to do together
Expert:  TherapistJen replied 11 days ago.

Come up with things you did at the start or new things. Each of you pick something and commit to doing it even if it isn't something you feel interested in.

Excellent. It might not feel easy at first, but better to try rather than just throw in the towel.
