Have I done it for the last time?
With a woman, I mean. Not that I have any desire to do it with a man.
I admit, the old love machine isn't what it used to be. But that's not the problem. I've been engaging in enough, um, self-medication to keep the prostate healthy, so to speak.
But my lovely wife seems to have lost all interest. No longer a lover, she's more of an affectionate roommate. We sleep together, sort of. I go to bed alone, then she follows a few hour later. I get up in the morning, she in the early afternoon. Valentine's Day, I made surf and turf, bought flowers. After dinner, I suggested we go off to bed, and she replied, "I suppose we could try." Try we did, and were more or less successful, but it seemed to be more painful than pleasurable for her. So, no libido, no desire to make love, and pain when we do.
I think maybe we're done. I never thought it would happen so soon, with us still so young.
