Wink Oh no! Things are going great! Wha'do I do?

Something's changed in my relationship with my man. I know I should just leave well-enough alone but I want to know why he's calling more often, more attentive, and says more sweet things to me than ever. He looks at me hard but I can't read the look in his eyes. It's been increasing more and more over the past few months but hit fever pitch this month with no sign of letting up. I want to know what's different so if it's something I'm doing right and/or better, I can keep doing it, but you don't dare ask something like this.

Feel free to post your, "Something's terribly wrong--Things are going too smoothly" posts here.

ETA: To our friendly neighborhood misogynists, no, I do not beat a man into a false confession or presume him guilty of wrong doing for bringing me flowers. I just want to know if it's something I need to keep doing to keep this going.

Thank you. I would if I knew what that was. I don't feel I've changed anything. It was good before. Now......wow!

It has been my observation that many men in their later 50's reach a place of what I call "enlightenment" and realize just how much they have (or don't have) going for them now that they are closing in on the next phase of their lives.

Those that DO have a lot going for them - great wife, happy home, disposable income, a growing retirement acct, successful young adult kids, etc... seem to be able to look around and truly appreciate it like never before

Perhaps this is what has happened to your beloved hubby?

That's some bang up logic there. Why don't you just ask him? I don't know who you guys are, so I have no idea why he's doing it.

why is he acting weird all of a sudden? he's probably cheating or trying to hide something.

edit: gotta love the cowards who leave negative rep comments but not their name. FYI to whomever that was I'm not looking to find myself a man (or woman for that matter).

Relationships have ebbs and flows, and they are constantly developing. Go with this development, enjoy it, and try to prolong it. Lucky you two!

What I said was that cheating seems to a recurrent theme with you as you tell many posters that their men must be cheating on them.

I also said I was sorry if some man had hurt you by cheating on you and made you so biased against men.

Then I said I hoped you would try to work on that so you can attract and keep a good man in the future (suspicious women who always think their guy is up to no good eventually lose the good guys).

Because I said all that in such a small space, I ran out of room to sign my name.

For your own sake I hope you will consider I was really trying to help you.
