Question: I have a question: when does being a “late bloomer” become a problem? I have never had a serious relationship. I am waiting until I graduate from college because the guys here are the minority as my school is 70 percent female and most guys just want to hook up.
In this video Ayida Honor and Lenon Honor discuss some of the challenges that late bloomers have in relationships. Late bloomers are people who do not engage in relationships or sexual activity until much later than what is normally expected. We have advised for people to take their time in relationships and to take their time before committing to sexual activity. This can be a challenge for many people because we live in a society that expects for young people to be in relationships and to engage in sexual activity. Much of the media programming promotes sexual promiscouity. Therefore, there is a lot of pressure for relationship activity even if it is not something that is beneficial to a person. The same thing applies to sexual interactions. There are many people who engage in sexual activity even if it is not in their best interest. This is why we encourage people to take their time.
Recently I posted on facebook page a message that got a lot of attention. I posted that after 16 years I am more attracted to my wife than I was when we first met. My wife and I decided to do a video discussion to talk about what people can do to keep the attraction alive in their relationship. Some of the things that my wife and I do to keep the attraction include:
1. Humor and laughter. I do my best to make my wife laugh as much as possible. This keeps our relationship enjoyable and the enjoy-ability translates into attraction.
2. Communication about what is attractive to you and what is attractive to your partner.
3. Staying in shape. Many people let their physical health go once they are in a relationship. It is important for a man and a woman to take care of their physical condition not just for themselves but also for their partner.
