About Me: I ride a motorcycle, do technology stuff for a non profit. I have a daughter in college, we're best friends. I did parenting right. That's all you need to know.

In this country we talk to the woman like they are people. We learn what is on their mind by asking them. Try it.

I don't think you're telling him to stop because you like the attention and hope it leads to more. Do you know for sure he's still with the GF? Ask him straight up. If he says yes, tell him to leave y more »

she may want to talk to him openly but he may not want to participate in that conversation. Many guys his age won't address their diminished ability. Go find one that will. It's worth it! more »
