This LW requested feedback specifically from readers, so I hope you can help her out.
I’m writing because I adore and respect this man and am mostly happy with the way things are between us. (“Mostly,” because I wish we had more time for each other). However, those who love me most want “more” for me. What others project on me, I think, is a traditional partner who will be all things to me. What I want, however, is what I, incredibly, have – the sustainability of having free, creative, out-of-bounds sex with the most beautiful man I’ve ever met and the only one to whom I’m attracted.
So, I’m curious to hear if any of your readers have stories to share about non-traditional paths to love, especially those that span many years and many phases of life. (I’m not interested in hearing about what a single mother “should” be doing with her free time, heaven forbid she have any). — About to turn 34
