Vegas is a really great place to differentiate the interest in 'gambling" and site seeing

Great attitude and sense of humor. You deserve to have someone “buy you a bunch of clothes and decide on Vegas”. I’m going to try that one day when I’m retired too!
Have fun!

Tricky, you may already have thought about this, but as you two progress you need to have a conversation about sexually transmitted disease.

I know it seems awkward, but it’s very important because stuff like herpes and gonorrhea are increasing among senior citizens.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/health....%3fcontext=amp

The easiest way to bring it up is to have yourself tested and then just tell her , “I wanted to let you know that I have a clean bill of health, including no STDs, and I just wanted us both to have peace of mind before we move further.”

Hopefully she is a reasonable person who lets you know she’s clear as well. But it’s a risk that people who have been married a long time and not dating recently may not be aware of.

Neither of us are gamblers, she already said $100 is her betting budget, I may try a few games/slots but were mainly going for sight seeing and just hanging out together.

Birdiebelle, I'm pretty sure you have to have "relations" with others to contract stds. I for sure and her 99.9% that has not happen. Your concern is well appreciated and in this day and time very appropriate.

Good to know. I'm not trying to be a party pooper, just realistic. You don't really know the details of her story, so it's good that you're being cautious.

Be sure to let us know how the trip goes.

Well, you were both married, so I presume you both have had relations at some point. It's always a good idea to get tested.

That said, have a fun trip! This thread is really cute, and it's fun to see something happy on this board for once!

I'm not retired not even close. I would like to say thanks for all the response's to my new life adventure's it is nice. I don't like talking with family about my personal life(we are not a close family).

the last few nights have been becoming more intimate, lots of holding and hugs on the couch while watching tv(neither of us are tv watchers). she is so excited about going as am I. This next week is gonna drag but anticipation is building which makes it exciting. she still thinks I'm scared to fly and teases me about it. It's all good.

I will keep y'all updated, maybe even from Vegas if possible. no promise's on that though.

Have a great day everybody!
