I have this friend who is so madly in love with her man she doesnt know what to do with herself. But her man is 15 years her senior and he is kind of done with all the lovey dovey stuff. You know like just reaching out to hold her hand while watching a movie. Or coming home from work and putting his arms around her and telling her that he missed her. These things are important to a woman, dont you think. I think for your mate to feel loved, you have to show them some affection. otherwise, they can be left feeling used or very underappreciated. What do you think ladies?

It doesn't matter what age you are a little lovey dovey is good at any age. Affection has no age limit so the man is probably not the affectionate or romantic type. I am 65 years of age and I have relatives and friends at my age that have been married a long time and they still show affection for each other.

that is exactly what i told her. My husband shows me tons of affection and he is 46 years old. I would think something was wrong if he didnt show me love

Random acts of affection are one of my favorite parts of a relationship. It shows that people care without having to go to far out of their way.

The problem could be that the man is not the romantic type, it mustnt reall mean the man doesnt love her. Its just unfortunate that shes the one doing all the loving without reciprocation. I would suggest she have a heart to heart talk to her man, tell him what she expects of him. I mean all those little things that matters to a woman. every woman naturally crave for love, attention and care, l know shes not an exception!
