This seems really healthy and is very sweet. I'm sure if you told her these things she'll feel so loved.

I wish my boyfriend had a crush on me...

That said, I'm in no hurry for that. I like having the kids there as well.
The empty nest sure moves you into a whole new phase of your marriage

Seems to me like you just recently got a small taste of what is to come and that got you all worked up, lol.

Enjoy the endorphin rush

What's wrong with being in love with your wife? Tell her. That would make me feel like a princess.

if you can't 'handle' the different types of responses a thread gets, then stop reading threads.

I couldn't care less about raining on someone's parade or blowing smoke up their as* or anything else regarding such matters.

and maybe I should, who knows?

I want to have sex with her all the time, but it's not just that. I want to have her up close to me as we're lying in bed just so I can feel her skin against mine.

I know she's been enjoying it.
This is very sweet. There's no need to intellectualize it. Just enjoy it.

Oh please. Doll eyes is spot on. This is ridiculous I love my guy, no doubt and love is grand but this is over the top. I'd divorce the guy just to get some peace

I don't even see how this was even remotely taken seriously. but never mind, just agree with everyone else about how 'sweet' it is. 1 hour until the '2 minutes hate.'

I just wonder if it's a hormonal or psychological issue on my part. That's why I'm wondering if anyone else went through this ..
How old are you? I wonder if your testosterone level is lower than it used to be. Now don't take that as fact or as an insult at all. I have no scientific proof of anything, but I had an experience of my own that made me have some ideas about testosterone.

My story: My husband quite a few years ago had a testicular torson that he ended up having to have repaired surgically. Now when the testicle is twisted, it loses its blood supply and can results in lower serum testosterone. But I didn't know about/think about that all the time. All I knew was that I really enjoyed spending time with my husband. We would sit on the porch and talk and talk and talk. He just seemed calmer and more friendly, less hurried, willing to talk and actually listen. It was very pleasant. Usually he is hot and I am cold and one day when this was going on we got in the car and he was turning up the heat. Yes!

After the torsion was repaired, he within a few weeks was back to his old self. I guess what you'd call more macho. Less in touch with his feelings, less caring about my feelings, not really into sitting and talking about everything for hours, more on the go. Honestly, I miss that guy! And I have wondered if as he ages his testosterone level will lessen and that guy will come back. I hope so!

I know some guys are just naturally more in touch with their feelings and able to talk and communicate with a woman, but my husband isn't one of them. He's a typical guy. I kind of like the more sensitive version of him, though.

That's just my own theory. I wonder if you are more emotional as you age, possibly because of lower testosterone or maybe some other reason. I know men might take offense at suggesting their testosterone is low, but if that is really what was behind my husband's change in behavor, I really liked it! I obviously wouldn't like it if he went around acting like a WOMAN, but he didn't do that. He just was more communicative and sensitive.

Anyway, I would be careful not to overdo it TOO much because you don't want to smother her, but in general if a woman likes/loves you she is going to appreciate the things you are doing, not be annoyed by them.

This is going to come in handy when the kids have moved out permanently. It's a shame you can't bottle it. You'd have thousands (maybe millions) of couples lined up to buy a bottle. Whatever the reason, it's pretty clear you are in love with your wife. I can't see one thing wrong with that, especially after 20+ years of marriage. Don't question it and don't seek help on the internet. Just keep up the good work.
