Hrm... well, my sex life has been pretty non-existent for a while; mostly due to health issues on my part -- some genetic like hypoglycemia; some relatively new, like a possible thyroid deficiency (still haven't been tested, but it looks strongly like i'm developing hashimoto's disease); and some long-term problems of as yet unknown cause, such as my chronic insomnia. Because of this, combined with various work and life stresses, my libido varies from low to non-existent.
That, combined with an life partner who currently lives some distance away (long story, and she's actually fairly close geographically, but lives on an island, which makes getting there expensive, time-consuming, and difficult). On top of that, my other long-term relationship** ended badly a little while ago, which didn't help my attitude much; and the two other people I'm ostensibly involved with, i almost never get to see (scheduling and other issues, one of them is a teacher and has almost no free time), and haven't actually has sex with in... longer than I can remember at this point.
On the other side of that, I have one friend who has expressed interest in developing a sexual relationship at some point in the near future; but is currently in a 12-step-type program (not addiction-related, more sort of a mental/emotional sorting-out related to some self-destructive behaviour); and abstaining for a time as part of the program. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about being involved with her on that level, though. She's an attractive and interesting person, and I really like having her as a friend; but i'm not sure there's really anything else there.
I have another friend, who I haven't know all that long, also express interest (at least, I think she's interested, she's not entirely clear) in a sexual relationship. Not entirely sure I want to get involved with her, either; since she's a bit younger than I usually date, and a tad on the flaky side. OTOH, she's very attractive, interesting, and shares some of my kinks that none of my other partners have any interest in (nothing extreme). I also get the impression that she'd only be interested in being "fuckbuddies"; which i'm not opposed to on principle, just don't know if i'm interested in that right now.
My life is annoyingly complicated.
**My current relationship status is polyamourous and somewhat open; with a wonderful life partner who I will be with the rest of my life, and a few other involvements either currently on hiatus, or existing only as potentials.
