"I was down for some traditional cheating"

Is that you?

"I lost the big V a year ago. He knows, isn't happy about it, but is willing to date me anyway."

What the fuck is that supposed to mean?
He's (grudgingly) willing to date you, despite the fact that you're "damaged goods"?
Listen, there are guys who like you and there are guys who don't like you.
In neither instance do they like you "anyway".
This guy is a judgmental tight-ass.
Run fast and run far.

"or bummed because they are not as smart as I am"…

"I broke up with her the summer after our freshman year in college because things felt too serious. We continued to have sex, but I blocked out all my feelings for her, while she was open about still wanting to be with me. [...]
during the time we dated, she faked orgasms with me. She didn't have one with me until she introduced a vibrator the year I was having emotionless sex with her [...] Since then, we have forgiven each other and tried several times to rekindle our romantic relationship. Unfortunately, while for me there is a sexual attraction, she says she is no longer attracted to me."

So, let me be sure I understand this correctly:
First he dumped her because he didn't want to be in a serious relationship.
Then he had emotionless sex with her, even though he knew she was still in love with him, and he didn't even do that competently enough to make her come.
Now he feels attracted to her once again, and wants to be in a relationship once again, and is terribly upset that she's no longer attracted to him?

Dude, her taste in men might not run to your type, but she's not unattracted to you because you're a metrosexual, she's unattracted to you because you were a selfish user who was shitty in bed. You don't get to tell somebody (especially not somebody who you know is in love with you) that it's no strings when *you* want no strings, and then complain when *they* want no strings.

The only things you've "set the bar" for are being a jackass and a hypocrite.

"We just got back from a trip to see a safe and trustworthy friend in Los Angeles who "paid" me to have sex with my wife."

Strange sentence. I know what LW means, but it reads like the friend paid LW to have sex with his own wife.

@50: "but my engagement ring came from a bubble machine in a truck stop"

This reminds me of a cartoon I loved and had on my bulletin board for years:
"The bride may now noogie the groom".

@DBB: "What am I supposed to do now?"

Wash out both their mouths with soap and make them go to their room for a time-out?

"My problem is that my ideal engagement ring is something that looks nice but is cheap."

"Something that looks nice" leaves a lot of room for interpretation.

If what you mean is that you don't like diamonds because of the whole blood diamond issue, or because you just don't like the way they look, your fiance could get you an engagement ring with an emerald, or a ruby, or a sapphire, or whatever your birthstone is, or whatever your favorite stone is.

If you don't like any precious or semiprecious stone, there are rings without a stone (for example, in platinum) that could easily run about $1000.

Don't limit your search to the jewelry stores in the mall, either. Look in antique stores, which usually have at least some antique jewelry, if that's your style. Go to one or more custom design jewelry stores in your town, or the nearest good-sized city. Look at the rings, and think about what it is about them you do or don't like. Talk to the jeweler about what design elements s/he might be able to incorporate into a ring, e.g., "I like this design, but can you make it in white gold instead of yellow", "with a different stone", "with three stones instead of two", etc. By the time you decide on a unique ring that's exactly what you want, it's a pretty safe guess you'll be up to a $1000 price tag.

Nancy is on the right track. There's no point in sinking a lot of money into toys and props if you're not sure they'll work for both of you. She and Carl (has anybody else noticed that the names are the same as the couple in "Eating Raoul"?) could spice things up without spending too much by, perhaps, choosing a different position and/or location, role-playing, sexy talk, etc. There are probably things that she and Carl already own that could be repurposed -- for example, a scarf/bandanna could be used as a tie-up or blindfold. Coconut oil makes a nice-smelling, good-tasting lube, and can be found at reasonable prices at most food stores (a little dab of it also works fine as a leave-in conditioner). Good luck and have fun!

"Nothing about Patreus? All I can say is thank God he wasn't gay. Then he would have been open to blackmale"

Typo, or best pun ever?
