I had an interesting experience last night. I went out with a new friend, someone I know casually. There were supposed to be others there, but it ended up being the two of us and it started to feel like a date.
(I started writing a comment in another blog post but then it was getting so long and monologue'ish I thought I should make this a blog post. Here's the original post I was inspired by: http://www.reuniting.info/node/11113)
I want to share some ideas on unconditional love cause I'm noticing that my ability to love is really shifting for me now as I redirect my sexual energy towards being giving and loving. I guess it's also about having clearer boundaries.
Perhaps I should introduce myself and how I ended up on this path. I am a single mother approaching 40 and after many passion cycles, long periods of sexless loving, breaking up with generally wonderful people, going through the subsequent confusion and pain, and ending up with a child (no, I don't regret that!) and an ever expanding 'what I want in a new partner list', I felt dumbfounded.
Are there any single parents out there wanting to start or are already in a new relationship practicing bonding-based sex or Karezza? I'm starting this blog to invite some ideas and explore some questions I have (and maybe you have) as a single parent wanting to find a partner that wants to practice Karezza.
How do you find someone who wants to experiment with the exchanges when just the commitment to that experiment (if you follow the 'sleeping together every night' suggestion) also requires commitment to being part of a family?
How do you manage a longer period of courtship?
