So here I sit the day after Thanksgiving and I'm trying to reflect on my current dating situation.

I know what you mean.

Statistically, most men latch onto a new woman and often marry her within 18 months. I've been that "transitional woman" and put up with all the crap - listening to them miss their kids, hating their ex, the lawyers, the money, on and on and on and on and on.

I did talk to him about slowing down and told him that I do want to get married again and have a family, just not tomorrow.

It would make me very nervous if someone I had only been dating a few weeks started saying "You are the one for me"--I'd want to yell "you don't even know me."

I agree as well, sleeping together without having sex is way more intimate.

I can tell that he is serious about me, and it's only been a few weeks.

I'm trying to stop beating myself up.

You're right, it's definitely hard to put the genie back in the bottle, once you unleash it.

I also think the actual sleeping togther is in a way more intimate than having sex

She's 100% right on this one. You don't sound like you're half as into him as he apparently is into you.

I think it would be impossible for me to have sex w/ someone and then go back to not having sex, esp. if the sex was good.
