Growing old or growing up need not mean growing apart. We had "Grow Old Along With Me" by Mary Chapin Carpenter played at our wedding. But I love my wife more every day. While young love might be full of passion, sex and desire, a mature love is like favorite jeans grown more comfortable with time or any article that can't be replaced with something new. That's the great problem with new love, like a new car, the newer models might make you think of trading in. But ours is like a treasured heirloom love. And, having experienced both, I must say I prefer the latter.

Surely being together doing whatever briefly is far better than make believe without emotion. To have made one single journey but a host of memories [ the thrills is what's important. Yes?

The picture is a wonderful find.. choice!

Taje care, keep safe, Betty, and keep smiling..

A wonderful poem share dear Betty. With time together with someone. We will learn new ways to love each other. A long marriage take two kind people willing to change. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry my dear friend.

Just remember wear that dogs mouths been and what it's been licking before smacking any lips 😊
Be the exception and walk hand in hand as often as possible, some things shouldn't wane just because we do.
But it's not as much fun when you both wear protection (masks) 😷😷

Nuzzles are nice. An endearing write Betty and that pooch wants to join in. Nothing wrong with brevity. Quality comes in small parcels.

Always welcome Betty.
nuzzling is good.
that dog is really cute...and seems to like to join in.
speaking of "The Thrill is Gone"
here is something that I thought was super cool...my second ex Barbara, with whom I am still close, was at a bar in NY...met and had a dance with B.B. King...she said he was a really nice man. Very much a gentleman.

Nuzzling is good, so is snoogling!! Thanks always J
There is many different kinds of intimacy and lingering nuzzles can be a lovely way to connect. It all depends on the situation and age. I thought by the age of 42 my passionate drive would slow down some but not yet. Sometimes it can be a hindrance.

I find it comforting and deeply connecting to want to linger in cuddles without the actual fiery passionate acts of sexual desire,
