I'm lucky to have S in my life too. We started with a sexual based online relationship but quickly realized that there was a very intimate, non-judgemental component to it as well. Very accepting of each others lives, very open to share our own desires.
She also reads here, or at least used to. Hi, S!
I don't know if she read my previous post about her, but I did inquire about our relationship, and she concurred with the FWB, but we both know it's more than that, and less than an "in love" deal, though we do love each other.
Isn't it odd that there aren't more words for love? And then we wonder why we miscommunicate and misunderstand in relationships all the time
