    male needing advice on menopause
    dazza69 posted:
    Hi I'm a male... I search the net for trying to find more about menopause with women..too much out there on the net can not get my head around it all...
    need advice I meet a women who is 44, has menopause been seeing each other for 8 months once a week for sex and occasionally twice a week, now we been officially boyfriend girlfriend for two months.
    here's what I can't understand can she just lose sexual desire"she can be horny one day then not a day or so later...she would plan a nice night together through the week. what she wants to do to me...then when the time comes she has lost interest, I try to arouse her by going down on her" I do all of the time and she loves it as I do " she said I'm wasting my time this time cause it won't happen, just have sex i want the feel of it this time. other times when she call or messages, she has a moment down there, then she said once she was having a moment she was going to come over to my place, to which she decided not to as she said she may have lost interest on the drive over. as I live 20 minutes away...

    so can a women with menopause be like a switch turn on then off like that?
    hope I explained well to understand what I'm saying...
    I want to support her understand more with this but don't know if it the truth or not..

    so told me I'm hers only no other guy?

    now her history while I was seeing her she had another guy she see occasionally aswell, then she ask me do I want her for myself I said yes, she said ok she will stop seen him,
    and she told me that when she officially with a guy she doesn't sleep with the other it 4 months now she only sleeping with me.

    I'm hoping it the menopause doing this and she not seen anyone else....
