I'm glad you reached out - sometimes it can be hard to communicate what you want and need, even if the relationship makes you happy. Be a Blabbermouth!
has a lot of great tips on expressing yourself in conversations about sex and relationships. Here are some that I think would be especially helpful to you in this case:
* Using "I" statements
- Remember that you're speaking yourself and how you feel. Using sentences like "I feel that…" over "You make me feel like..." will help people you're talking to not feel accused of something.
* Accentuate the positive
- you can help your boyfriend feel at ease while you're bringing up something like this if you’re also acknowledging the things you enjoy doing with him.
* Expect the best
- Remember that what you have to say is important and productive! If you walk into a conversation anticipating that it will go poorly, it’s much more likely to.
How does this sound? Have you ever used "I" statements before?
I would also be really mindful that depressive episodes can definitely impact someone's activity level and their overall exhaustion, and it sounds like you're considering this. He might disclose some very serious feelings with you. Also, it might be also a good idea to talk about what COVID-compliant activities your boyfriend feels comfortable doing.
Also, when you say "i'm anxious to see him in the daytime, have sex, or even just do something low-key and fun together" - are you nervous to do those things, or are you excited?
