I'm asexual.

I have no need for either one.

Hmmm having a harem isn't bad. And I don't mean harem in traditional terms. Just a bunch of guys that hang out with me and I like to have around because they're fun.

I've always lived under those auspices, Blue. And, would have to agree! A lot of guys can't handle a girl with a posse.

In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

I could maintain buddy-hood too if others feelings didn't start getting involved. That's the problem. I thought men were supposed to like detachment?

Re: Boyfriends are over-rated...
When you start seeing magazines for guys about how to be a bride, girlfriend, this that or the other you could have a point.

Until then, you're just in denial. Women thrive on relationships.

You have sexual power now. That won't always be the case. Before you discard the people in your life that are boring for the more dangerous types, just remember, you too will be an old lady.

Invisible, like a toothless lioness.

God gave you sexual power at a young age to secure a good man to care for you when your power is gone. Men learn to live without it and have been doing it for centuries. Women are the pack creatures. Think about the future.

Use your power wisely and have a good day.

Re: Boyfriends are over-rated...
Thanks for the advice, but I'm not sold. A companion would be nice, but someone who allows enough space to be your own person without having to cling to you at every given moment. That's what really gets to me. When you're just buddies, there is a common respect you share and are able to keep living your life without having to invite them everywhere you go.

Maybe I've just met the wrong men to consider serious, I don't know, but I'm 99% of the time the one to end it.

Re: Boyfriends are over-rated...
No offense Lips (you know I love your lips) but it sounds like you view 'boyfriends' as a toy. Just another part of your posse except you sleep with them.

Do you feel like you have to have a boyfriend just for the sake of having a boyfriend? Do you have any real emotional commitment to a boyfriend?

Re: Boyfriends are over-rated...
That's it. I've felt at times that I've had a boyfriend just to have a boyfriend... not because I was head over heels for that person. I know a lot of women that just keep on going out with guys to have a boyfriend. I've never really considered myself that type.

Like I said, a companion would be nice... but there are so few people that I would want to spend a significant amout of time with and those people are already my buddies or friends.

There is always the distinct possibility that I've not met the right ones, but I've been through quite a lot and the possibility seems a bit daunting at this stage.

It sounds to me like you should continue on the journey of your life and never give a second thought about having a boyfriend until the time you meet someone that you feel a much stronger connection with. No need for a boyfriend "just because".

Wish - that's pretty much the way I've been viewing it. Everyone else seems to have a bigger problem with it than I do. They all want to see me with someone. I'm not sure that couples dating is where my heart is either, so probably a good thing. lol

Yeah, I can tell from your posts that you have allot of positive things to offer the "right man", but that doesn't mean it's the right time for the "right man". Just enjoy life and when the time is right destiny will take control.

Re: Boyfriends are over-rated...
Upon reflection... part of me feels guilty going out with people who are significantly younger than I am... By significant I mean at least a decade younger if not more. I meet A LOT of those types... I have a hard time seeing that as a long-term thing and just think of it as fun for the time being.

There's also the occasional married guy that I find uber attractive, but I'lll never be a homewrecker - no matter how tempting it may be at the time. This type is usually more within my age group.

1.) Young guys enjoy dating more mature women. Believe me, I know that your guilt is without warrant. As long as you don't lead them to believe that you are looking for something more than you really are, there is no harm done.

2.) Married men who flirt with the idea of affairs only go through with it if they are willing to gamble with their marriage. I could go on and on about that subject, but let's just say you should not feel any guilt on that end either.

Do you mean sex-buddies?

The vast majority of people are way too co-dependent for that to work. But it always struck me as a good way to go.

Like a dog to their vomit, nature will out her.

Her simple musings on this forum is clearly a struggle within herself to accept the easy going life of a person with no long term plan or the accepted route, family, suv's and soccer games.

Finding solace in the opinions of strangers is yourself yelling wake the hell up. Were all human, will your story be a page or a chapter?

Re: Boyfriends are over-rated...
i think the whole boyfriend/girlfriend thing is so , well, not me. it takes so much time and energy to make even a good relationship work, that i prefer to leave my love life to fate, and after five long but not lonely years, it has, i could spend everyday making this woman happy, and expect nothing in return, but she so appreciates the smallest things i do for her, it makes it effortless, it may be another year before i even kiss her, and i don't care
