Dear Prudence, The daughter of an acquaintance of mine recently was treated for cancer.
She's about 4-years-old, and I believe she is doing well now.
However, if each encounter leaves you feeling a void, then your frustration will ultimately kill the good parts of your relationship.
If you let him go, you will be telling him the truth if you say he's one of the finest men you've ever known, but you two just don't have any chemistry in bed.
You don't have to offer money toward the cost of a wig, unless the family is in financial straits and friends are raising funds to generally help them out.
(Then donate only what you can comfortably afford.) If you want to do something for them, bringing a dinner is helpful—check when one would be most needed.
I know how selfish that sounds, and it's killing me.
However, this situation does not entitle people to pressure those who aren't inclined to donate body parts—even renewable ones.
There was a gentleman just like that at the nudist resort I recently wrote about.
Every time I saw him, he was holding hands with his wife, who seemed blissfully happy to be with her little big man.
And if that happens, I have a somewhat hopeful note for your man.
I, too, Googled , and I had a shock of recognition when I saw the first image.
The only way you can find out whether this can be true for you is to try again—but if the thought fills you with dread and despair, you pretty much have your answer as to whether you can continue this relationship.
