    Seems ok with me.

    There is that deep expression of love that can come through the making of love, and then there is that raw sexually burning stuff that just happens. However, I much prefer this with someone where I can express that deep feeling of giving love, too. :cool:

    Trust can be an important component of love, and I agree that co-commitment is essential for healthy long term partnerships.

    Thinking is good for the soul.

    I like the idea of having both shared "space" and seperate "space".

    Oh d_f ... please becareful about that changing your plans during a day to accommodate him. It can lead to giving up part of yourself. Be very careful that it doesn't head down that path.

    Won't happen DP. We organise around what we both have to do, and he has changed what he wants to do to accommodate me as well, so it works both ways. Compromise. Why just this weekend he came dress pattern shopping with me!! Not something he would have been in the least bit interested in before meeting me. :D

    okay its early and I still am recovering from OSB and feeling a bit too lazy to be precise general there were few times when I was younger and more externally reactive when a relationship with another very emotional person with similar limitations could have easily spun into something a bit too volatile and irrational and ugly and addictive .... :rolleyes: know what I mean?

    Not so much as a what, but more of a when:

    The British actress Emilia Fox, on her parents the actors Joanna David and Edward Fox. Edward Fox bears an uncanny resemblance* to the British prince, Edward who abducated the throne in favour of his love, the american divorcee Wallis Simpson. Edward Fox has also played tv/film roles, acting as Prince Edward. Otherwise, in he a "very fine actor".

    (* yes, there has been speculation regarding the resemblance ;))

    There's a lot to be said for sex with a friend you've known a long, long time and trust completely. So, at least in my book, sex is a reasonable way to vote. No need for :oops:

    For a lot of people- myself included, at one time- marriage is not necessary for sex. I have also been very, very careful about not letting sex get in the way of some very special relationships I've had with men. It would absolutely have ruined the friendships.

    First I'd pick love and if that's there I'd look at the friendship and companionship aspect... I mean, sometimes you can fall for people who you wouldn't be good companions with or whatever (opposites attract...)
