I am now 44. Even though I’ve been with quite a few girls over the years I was busy with work and hadn’t dated anyone for about six months.
I was having trouble getting hard while masturbating. I was in a panic and thinking I needed Viagra or Cialis immediately.
Instead I called up an attractive younger girl I once had an arrangement with. As soon as she started undressing I was instantly aroused and she was 10 feet away from me.
I just needed someone half my age in lingerie to get me excited. My own imagination wasn’t enough anymore apparently.
A lot of things start happening to men as we age. Our testosterone drops. Our commitment to exercise and weight training drops. Very often in our 20’s we are always at the gym, always playing, always active. As we age, perhaps we just don’t care as much to stay as fit. I’m willing to recognize all of this happens. As you saw first hand, some men are simply in complete denial. I think you did the right thing by calling him out on it. He was obviously not willing/able to see it himself. The only risk is a lot of men have fragile egos so it’s really tough to discuss this topic.
