Back when our youngest child turned 4 yrs old and was regularly finally sleeping through the night, my ex and I had a 2nd honeymoon. We finally had time and energy for rekindled feelings of romance and desire. It was great, we were both on such a sexual high.
At the same time, I got a HUGE crush on one of our best friends, a younger single man who lived right across the street. It was thrilling and yet very disturbing and difficult, as I didn't recognize I was poly at the time...
Love withers under constraint; its very essence is liberty. It is compatible neither with envy, jealousy or fear. It is there most pure, perfect and unlimited when its votaries live in confidence, equality and unreserve. -- Shelley
