Both retired, both in relatively good health although he has been having back and shoulder issues due to arthritis. All I need to do is lose some weight,(sigh)
I’ve always known he was a bit ADD but it has not become such a huge stumbling block in our retaltionship until lately. He wants to go, go, go and do, do, do and along with that comes spend, spend, spend.
I don’t think he has ever sat down and watched an entire tv show much less a movie or even a ballgame. And he loves baseball!
But now it’s almost as if he is frantically cramming everything into his life as the age of 70 is looming in his horizon. And I just want to stay home and read and relax and visit friends. I’m tired. He wants us to be on the road and travelling several times a month. He golfs and works in his shop and goes out for coffee every day so it is not as if he is lingering at home.
We still love each other dearly, we still have a great sex life, we still have basically the same values. But he is driving me crazy and I suspect I am doing the same to him.
Just wondering if it is time to part ways? I do not want to spend the years ahead always feeling that he is unhappy and I am failing him but I also don’t want to all have this nervous feeling in my stomach. I just want to relax. Any suggestions, ladies?
