what was it about "opening up" that you were so emotional and overwhelmed... Mono has had that on loan for a long time now and still can't bring himself to read it... don't know why though.

I lent my dad "new love without limits" the other day... when the parents came for tea. We shall see how that goes over.

I LOVED the book Mono suggested. It's AWESOME (Maca is reading it now).

Opening up has a lot of... concrete lists for defining relationships.
Instead of saying "be sure to communication" it's more of a
"did you discuss who is ok as a secondary, friends? neighbos? relatives? coworkers? exes?"
etc through a variety of the topics that commonly pop up in any nonmonogomous relationship-not just polyamory.
It's been very interesting to read.

I can't remember what got me all emotional.
There's been so much going on.

Good grief huh?

We finally got to "debrief" about our weekend in full today. I think we made some kick ass breakthroughs and are "back on track" with each other again.

So I spent 2 hours on fetlife and ... yeah-I got so lost I didn't know which page was where and while I read a few interesting posts, didn't really find anything new that I didn't already know.


Anyway-we did find some other stuff elsewhere online that Maca and I found exciting. GG is here too-but I got all self-conscious (his roll is SO different with me) and I had to drop hte kinkier side of our "search" because I just couldn't keep going with him watching.

reread my post-it wasn't the book that had me keyed up. Sorry for the confusing way I typed that. I was keyed up and emotional over the strain and distance between Maca and I since Friday. I was reading the book to "take a break".

New love without limits


Comming out is good also. Thats the book that asked the question about my perfect relationships.( posted about it on LR's thread about D/s)

Enjoying it tons. I have picked out a section that [I] have now reread 4 times and I refuse to move forward till I believe I completely comprehend it.

I have also decided that Im going to back off on New relationships and just concentrate on the ones I have now and work on myself. I realised I really dont know enough about myself to move beyond where I am at now.

Im actually very relieved that I made that choice.

Peace and Love
