In a nutshell I've hit mid-life and am working at re-inventing myself in every way.
While I was married I was the "good wife", which meant boring.
After my divorce I took some time to think about what I REALLY want.
That's a big question, ya know? The answers don't come swiftly. At least they didn't for me.
The one thing that has been really clear to me all my life is, I genuinely love men. Pretty much everything about them. Vive la difference!
I'm pretty much baggage free in the gripes against men department.
I take responsibility for my own shortcomings, which means I don't blame the men in my life for what I'm unhappy about.
Sure, I've had some shitty things happen to me, but when I look at them closer I can see that I'm the one who let those things happen to me.
By taking full responsibility for my own happiness I am, dare I say it, a Joy to be around. LOL
Happy, positive, loving, self-actualizing, joy-full : )
My independence is really important to me, but I am looking for a partner. I enjoyed being married, it just got stale and we grew apart. No harm, no foul.
My life has been full of wonderful men, and that's not going to stop anytime soon : )
But I require someone who understands that.
Polyamorous is now how I see myself in relationships. Many loves. There's a lot of love to go around, ya know?
More than pure sex for sex sake, I'm looking for connection with people who stimulate me on other levels too. Mental, emotional, spiritual...& of course physical : )
Hmmmmm....... It's a pretty big part of my life right now, so maybe I'll blog about that later.
Anywho, that's a start!
Now I'm going to go see what this place is all about.
I'm hoping to learn a ton and make some new friends.
