Gawd how I care for her and want her to understand!
Trying to understand it my self.

I'm not having sex with anyone other than with my wife -- and she and I enjoy it at least once almost every day. Nor is there necessarily another particular woman I'm attracted to, although there have been some arousing moments that felt perfectly right.
Congratulations on the successful talk! Read, read, read and talk some more!
