Hi I'm the An from the original post...
My name is Maenad. Whirl is my bf and as he mentioned this is a new experience for me. At first, it sounded scary, insecure, temporary, fleeting... well, that should paint a pretty good picture. But to my surprise and delight... I feel so open and willing to try this...to try anything (at least once :P )
I have to agree with Whirl, open communication has been so wonderful. No matter where this new chapter in life will lead us, I feel so confident that it will be positive, enlightening, and a life enriching experience.
So I am very interested in your input and sharing my experience with you on the forum.
