Yes. I’ve come to think that many relationships break down because the needs of each become incompatible. I need loving touch, but my ex not so much. I begged for consistent sex, only for her to respond, “What do you think I am, your sexual slave?” to which I would respond, “What do you think I am, your financial slave?” We obviously both felt taken for granted. Now we are free. She is much poorer and I’m struggling to establish a regular sex life with someone who won’t expect me to provide for all their material needs. I make due with plenty of professional massages, and occasional visits to a tittie bar; but at least if I feel quitting my job that will be my free decision. Life is interesting.
