Hi, I started this thread before the server outage and data loss. To recap. I have an overpowering fetish for gloves, sometimes it sits in the background and does not really bother me, this time of year (UK, winter) it can get prominent. This year it is bad (because of the fact that long leather gloves have made a comeback), when i'm out in the city I'm looking for women wearing gloves, esp long ones just to see the gloves. My wife, She will not wear gloves for sex, or as an general accessory she only wears gloves for practical reasons (washing up and when it is cold). I decided to go and see a counselor and I am waiting for the appointment (I went to my doctor who has refered me.) At the moment, I feel odd as I was in the city with my wife earlier and when we coming home, we passed a couple and the women was wearing long leather gloves. We were on public transport at the time, I wanted so much to get off and go and have a better look. I dislike feeling like that, I feel like a stalker. I could not say anything to my wife, I wish I could, but I get a feeling of annoyance from her when gloves are mentioned. I feel like my fetish is taking control. Somethings I have thought about doing, when I am out with my wife, If I spot long gloves on a mannequin in a shop or being worn. Do I mention it to my wife, 'Those gloves are quite cool'? I hope the counseling will help. Cheers.
