I have reason to believe that a new relationship will soon become sexual, ending a very long dry spell. Although I’ve told the lady in question enough about my past for her to infer that I haven’t slept with anyone in a while, she may not realize just how long it’s been. (And no, I’m not going to tell you, either. Suffice it to say that, in some of the recent threads about sexual dry spells, I wouldn’t have had the record, but I easily would have been in the top 5%.)
I have an urge to say something (well before we actually get into bed, of course) to lower her expectations. You know, self-deprecating, funny, along the lines of, “This won’t be very good, but I’m seriously dedicated to improving my skills at every opportunity.”
So, ladies, my question is: is this a good idea, bad idea, or something in between? If you don’t like it, how would you recommend I handle the situation?
Any other advice?
