Thanks SO much Traveler..I SO appreciate your responding to my post. A big part of "us" is his confusion of what we are...and what he wants. I just wonder why now...2 1/2 yrs later..he shares this about gifts..as I have given him plenty....and we discuss EVERYTHING.

I think he did not want me to think he was not appreciative of the gifts I gave to him..he didn't want to hurt my feelings....
