36 and dating again
Also, he mentioned early on that he doesn’t always have an erection. I don’t want him to ask me to spend ages masturbating him or giving him oral sex to get him aroused. Tell him that you enjoy the sensuality of what you’ve been doing, but you’re not ready to take it further and can’t predict when or if you will be. Meanwhile, a few things to think about: It sounds like he has hinted at his sexual needs but you haven’t ask him to clarify them.
I want to feel more secure with him so I’ll feel ready for sex – I’m in the process of recovering from a two-year relationship with a man who was not emotionally available, so I’m a little scared. Wanting physical affection but not intercourse does not make you a tease. It’s common for older men to need more touching and other kinds of sexual stimulation.
We’ve been doing a lot of kissing and holding hands and just general touching.
At this point I’m okay with petting, but I don’t feel comfortable getting naked and doing more. First, I am very scared of having sex with someone who might have a sexually transmitted disease. So I would need to be sure the man was disease free before I would exchange any fluids, either through intercourse or fellatio.

It may not be exactly easy to integrate that love into the life you had with your kids before that person came along, but it's not impossible.The first time I disrobed in front of Matt, who hadn't ever seen any woman who had three kids naked, let alone I was nervous, and it took a while before I stopped sucking in my gut. But those issues were mine, not his, and eventually they dissipated. Just know that children have literally zero desire to have the existing parent "replaced." Even if you would sooner see your ex disappear into the Bermuda Triangle, your children are unlikely to share this sentiment. And we try to talk as a group when things aren't going well. Slandering your ex will only make your children hate you, and the new partner as well. There were some rocky points along the way, but we made it.Sex may be a little, er, weird, and also potentially difficult to orchestrate with kids around.

No matter how much you love the new person you bring into your life, your children are unlikely to share the same warm feelings right away. Older children will not usually filter their true feelings and may be heard saying something like, "You have (which my 11-year-old actually exclaimed).
