Welcome to our forum.
We have a Dating & Friendships subforum
; you may find that helpful (if you haven't been there already).
You'll definitely find people here who are sympathetic and understanding towards you. Just explore our various threads a little, see what calls to you, and post any thoughts and questions you may have.
I get the impression you and your partner are kind of in the "thinking about it" stage. Is that accurate?
In any case, I'm glad to welcome you aboard.
