No passion, my boyfriend is my best friend


I have been going out with my boyfriend for a total of 5 years now. We dated for 3 years starting in 2006, we broke up and then started dating again in 2010 once college was over. We have lots of fun together, share many interests and are comfortable with each other. The problem is, beyond holding hands and snuggling, I have no real desire for anything physical. He will make advances and when I am in the mood we go ahead and be intimate and it is great but usually I just make up excuses to avoid anything physical . I have a few questions...

Is it normal as relationships mature that they become less focused on the physical aspect of a relationship?

Would you still stay with someone who you love, and they love you, and the rest of your life is great except you have no passion?
