Yes, it definitely does. We are all three quite happy about things, and not just sexually.

Yes, I am rather, shall we say, glib. If thereís a point of any gravity that Iím trying to communicate, Iíll generally do so bluntly. Everything else is just me trying to amuse myself and whatever poor fool has to read what I write.

But no, thatís just silly phrasing. We are all three adults, and while we are planning for the long haul, there is no expectation of ownership, possession, or anything of that nature. We will probably joke around and say things like that as terms of affection and whatnot, but thatís as far as it goes.

Yes, she is much younger. Iím 40, Lucy is in her early thirties, and Ethel is in her mid-twenties. We discussed this extensively. Our previous girlfriend was also much younger, and that was a point of concern. We came to the conclusion that she was very mature for her age. We were mistaken. Therefore we have looked even more closely at that issue this time, and we have discussed it at length with Ethel.

But what that comment referred to is that Lucy and I have schedules to keep, and Ethel was here visiting, so didnít have to get up early on a weekday. Sheís just as much of a grown-up in that regard, and actually has a tougher work schedule than me and Lucy combined. Which kinda sucks from a self-centered point of view. Really complicates visiting arrangements.

It is a full and proper triad, except that Ethel and I donít put Tab A into Slot B. There are some solid reasons behind this decision based on both of their histories. So far we seem able to satisfy each other just fine, and weíve only barely scratched the surface.
