I can do it!!!

I'm sticking to my guns! That's right...I STILL haven't had sex! It has been just over 2 months since I last had sex. I've gotten over the sex-craze hump, so to speak. I don't think about it nonstop anymore. As a matter of fact, I rarely think of it at all. Is that normal? I think it helps that I haven't really been dating either. I've been concentrating more on myself rather than trying to hook up with someone.

I have been talking to a man I met on a dating website almost 2 months ago though. We haven't met live and in person yet, due to the distance (about 500-600 miles!), but we do plan to eventually. Maybe it's my blossoming interest in getting to know him that has blocked my sexual appetite for anyone local. I never thought I would ever consider doing a long distance thing with ANYONE, but something is different about this guy. I can't really put my finger on it, but it is. Is that crazy?

Do you remember your last long distance foray?
I think it has more to do with the intrigue, the feeling of not having something near you at a moments notice, so you yearn for it more.
Sex is something that is as important as eating, sleeping, breathing. It is a part and parcel of our existance. The more people try to suppress those desires the more frustrated they get.

i never really thought bout long distance seriously before. but then again i never met anyone that i could imagine myself actually considering that as an option. that said, i do believe that sometimes it does work out. my friend met her now-husband on an online dating site. and at that time they were in entirely different countries across the world! but they still managed to get coupled and married and are still married years down the road...

I know a handful of couples who met online, did the long distance thing, and ended up married. I think you have to have a very special relationship to maintain it though.

You go girl! I've considered long distance but don't know that I could do it...at least not at that distance. I'm sort of seeing someone now that's 75-80 miles away and even that can suck sometimes. Hope it all works out for you!

wow congratulations!

In college, I gave up hooking up for lent. The day after easter I gave away my virginity.

Maybe you will the day Mr. Long Distance comes to meet!

It supposedly works for some people (long distance), though I couldn't do it. I don't think it'd hurt to meet up, but it will automatically be more complicated...so YMMV.

Yea! I need a support system. I'm trying to at the very least go 6 months. But yeah, it's a b*tch at times. And I just met a really good dude and we haven't had this talk yet. If he can just wait until 12:00a on 1/1/09, he'll be a lucky fellow.
