And besides, as I put it: "Look, darling, you are craving vagina and I very obviously don't have one. Go get it.".

Think of it as an early way of realizing that I couldn't fulfill all of her needs, so I told her to seek out what she needed from someone else.

As for this part, I've had this conversation with my wife (as well as a very close friend, and yes hilarity ensued). Most telling wasn't just who was on the list, we took it a step further and asked why they where. It's a pretty good exercise that teaches you not only about your partner(s) but also yourself if you're honest.
