Articles like this so very much help (hopefully other guys read it and think).

Having been in a long term relationship with many up’s and down’s, I am very much glad I have been able to give my partner the safety (personal) she has needed to never have been assaulted or been damaged like so many women I have been friends with but I can tell you this much … it sucks because I have worried so much about that along with the shit-storm of life and my personal traumas … that things have fallen off.

So with this filter it hopefully allows me to view from a feminine view how to try to broach topics and build something better (so thank you again)

For guys that age (or those that are young), don’t take your health for granted because the twisted irony is that women ramp up wonderfully well as they beat back their demons, and meanwhile for a lot of guys they find they are having issues being able to take care of their partner in the desire department and in action which leads to a nasty downward spiral.

I have found from platonic female friends who have stated to me that their other half is the one with the headache, or has near zero drive anymore and they are frustrated too. So from that view yeah if you battle your demons and win, find some acceptable partners to “partner” up with to find out that nothing works or barely works and then rejection hit double hard.

Thanks again and thanks for letting me share on your article.
