This is really interesting stuff....

I'm reflecting I have this belief about people which is that - from an early stage - they are immensely sophisticated, powerful, complex and resourceful.

I'm not so self-impressed to think that my xgf can't find another relationship as satisfying as the one we enjoyed together, especially considering she will probably end up with a guy who won't be using a cane when she's still a spry 50 year old.

What would you be using the cane for, I want to know?

It sounds like your relationship is

Sounds like she needs a friend, and you too. I would not want to be in her shoes. Women need to be financially independent, but that's a whole different thread!

But in terms of going without, you are an inexperienced lightweight. This is not an arena in which you want to compete. ;->

That was hilarious but wait til I hit the 6 month mark. I assume I'll be at least to the middle of the pack?

In fact, without the sex I don't think the level of emotional connection could be more than 10% of what it
