Lust vs. Shared Values

couple, relationship, love, woman, man, marriageI get a little edgy at times and I wonder why and then I remember that I haven’t had sex in seven months. Hello! That would make anyone crazy. Especially someone like me who was used to having it all the time. It’s a new way of living and although I stand by my decision to stay celibate for a year at least, possibly longer, it’s not easy.

Secondly, you are not overwhelmed by bonding hormones that may cause you to close an eye to incompatibilities or poor character.

    • Thank you; I love you for writing this. I do need the support. Most people think I’m crazy.
