    I read that on a guy's profile on one of those gay social apps. His profile seemed pretty upbeat, so I guess he's ok with this new arrangement.

    But I just thought it was peculiar that a guy "decides" to become celibate while in an established relationship. What would cause this? Anyone have any personal experience or possible explanations?

    I think you should define the term celibacy first!

    True celibacy is not just avoiding sex, but also suppressing the desires and thoughts too.

    So, if he's just avoiding, there may be reasons like...a disease or psychological or wanted to break up, etc.

    If he's avoiding the thoughts too...then his reasons might be spiritual or psychological etc.

    No theories to propose. But time will tell whether a partner going celibate will work out in the long run.

    I agree. While the guy's profile was upbeat, I could tell he had (or has) some apprehensions about it, and has learned to accept that he now has to use an app for sex.

    My response to a partner of mine saying that to me would be: 'Ok. Well, sorry, this is now just a friendship.. because the relationship is over.'

    There are a lot of diseases, especially cancers, that can kill your sex drive or make it physically impossible to have sex. That may be a reason.
