Most of the Love Zombie posts on here feature females. But the Toro Water Snake, at his 2nd Saturn Return, wants to know if men can play too?
I have to admit, as a male in the last year of his sixth decade, to bucking the trend and being a Male Love Zombie for the past five months. Your wonderful posts and equally wonderful readers comments have helped me survive this. I have been weaning her off for the last two months and as she finally got the message she burgled my home as a parting gesture.
Waking at about 3 am this morning I was wrestling with the notion that I really had no more love for her and asked myself ” Is it right that I pull the love out from under her feet?” And then I thought “Hang on, what the hell is my love doing under her feet?”
Ta, that’s all for now,
Toro Water Snake.
Dear Toro Water Snake,
WOW! Good on you for coming clean with this! Welcome! How many other men lurk amongst the Love Zombies (reformed and current) feeling that it is inappropriate to step forward for support. Here at Love Zombies Anonymous* we welcome all – regardless of gender or age, anything really.
But hey, you are going through your 2nd Saturn Return! And it is in Libra, the sign of relationships. That would amplify the experience for sure. Also, this sounds more like you’ve been sleeping with a tricky bit of business and are now coming around to realizing that.
But five months is a relatively short phase of Love Zombiehood and for 3 am, your thought process seems rational.
Don’t make anyone a priority when you are only an option to them.
The burglary? You have been dating a thief? Or she took something she thought to be rightfully hers?
I will now throw this open to the glorious community (nearly typed coven lol) – thoughts?
