Basic training

You really should start dating again. I know some great guys. I could hook you up.”

“We’ve talked about this, I’m fine.”

Aren’t you lonely? You’re too young to be by yourself.”

“Sure, I miss… the intimacy, but I can’t…”

I can’t believe you’re being so inhibited. The sexual taboos of our 20s don’t apply now that we’re in our 50s.

“I’m not being inhibited, I’m being pragmatic. I don’t want to break in a new lover, and we won’t even talk about having to get naked!”
