He is now 83 and I just want to know why is it so hard to talk to him. I talk and he doesn't even seem interested, he doesn't even look at my way. He just doesn't seem to even want to make an effort. Is it the "gap" in our ages? I tolerate it and most of the time, laugh it off and ignore it. But a woman needs conversation and security like a man needs sex and other things. Maybe I am not picking my battles wisely, but this is why I feel alone. It is like talking to the dogs. Sorry, just needed to vent.
