Q: I am 58 and have a deep connection with a man I've known for about a year. We get along fabulously and I believe most women would think he is a great catch; I definitely do. My problem stems from his questionable hygiene. His work requires some extreme conditions as well as some dirty jobs . I'm not sure he realizes this hygiene issue has spilled into his everyday life and I don't know how or if I should broach the subject. He is such a kind, fair, loving, caring man and I would hate to lose him, especially if there is a way to be gentle and not offend him. Any ideas?
