Thanks. I'm not planning on "opening up," myself, but I understand her situation is different. We're doing some reading (Tristan Taormino's Opening Up), and communicating well, and talking with friends who have some measure of experience with these things, but it's all pretty overwhelming sometimes. I never wanted anyone but her. Any other reading recommendations for a guy in my situation?
Side note: is there a reason my longer post giving a little detail and background hasn't shown up in the "Relationships Corner" forum yet? I double-posted on accident, because I didn't see the notice the first time that it needed moderator approval, but neither has appeared, and I tried to post this morning....
