Well, whatever fetish/twist he's got is changing: At first, just physical issues but overall healthy, then he needed someone ill.

I have been wondering the same. I invited the whole class to dc's party in July. I think unless you are doing all boys or all girls you should invite the whole class regardless of date in the summer. People will be hurt/offended if their dc is not invited, unless you do just a few friends. [ Reply | More ]

I agree with you, but unless you are doing a small party with just a few kids I still think you should invite the class. Think of it as an excuse to get together as a group one last time. If you offend people by not inviting them it will only make you look bad. Is that worth it? Plus, I would bet a lot of people decline the invitation if they are not true friends of yours anyway.

[ - ] Never thought I’d write this. I am a very attractive and smart divorced woman, late 30's. All of a sudden I can't stop thinking that I would like to meet another woman, possibly like me...Why am I looking for such a person? Well, I am heterosexual, have always liked men … but in the past year I have just started to feel something difficult to describe with words - I found myself curious about meeting a woman and seeing what would happen, if all the traits important to me were present. It could be only a quality friendship that I seek, who knows. I don’t to be honest, and I apologize if all this does not makes sense, and of all places for posting here. But I guess I just wanted to hear if this is normal, if anyone else has felt the same way. Thanks. 11 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

boy, on the old UB you would have already had a bunch of 'offers' from wanna be lesbian moms. OK - this crowd is a big tamer - I think it is normal to fantasize about women. men are SO draining and sometimes I think woman just want the ease that goes with hanging out with other women. No advice really; haven't really btdt but have done a lot of fantasizing and more about being with another woman. [ Reply | More ]

hmm, i think this it's totally normal to want to have a close woman friend who you have a lot in common with. if you're thinking you might want it to be more, that's normal enough too- i mean, just go with it and see where it leads. you might find that friendship is all you want, you might want more. but it's ok to think all of that [ Reply | More ]

go to a lesbian bar, walk in and sit down and have a drink. absorb the energy. repeat. BTW, I did this (the exploration thing) and once I got past the sexiness of the novelty, found that I am basically straight though open minded. We are all on a spectrum IMO. GL figuring it out. [ Reply | More ]
