My new girlfriend seems to be set against receiving gifts. I want to spoil and pamper her with presents and treats, but she gets very uncomfortable if I try to give her anything. She won’t even let me pay when we go out for dinner. She doesn’t mind giving gifts, but she really doesn’t like to get them. Do you have any idea why this might be? Is there anything I can do to change her mind?
My husband is going through a mid-life crisis. We’ve been together for 23 years, and I thought we were happy. He received a promotion a couple of years ago, and the stress caused him to have a sort of breakdown. Since then, we’ve had an on-again-off-again relationship. We have constant fights, but we exercise together every day and are sexually active with each other. I am not worried about another woman. He seems to be lost inside of a shell with no outlook in life. Does male menopause really exist? Do they really get numb and not know what to do? He claims our separation is based on bad feelings he cannot describe. What should I do?
