You and me, both! I was probably the only girl who went to college, intent on losing my virginity, and failed miserably. All of my guy friends were having sex with my girl friends. I mean, I'm sure I could have had sex with someone, if I lowered my standards. In hindsight, did I really need to have standards?

I hear that. My ship sailed a loooooong time ago,lol. I just had 'friends with issues',lol, no 'friends with benefits' for me.

glad I don't have to think about THAT anymore said...

Well, I suppose it beats DIY....

In my day benefits meant he was 21 and woulc buy liquor. Or he had a car. I'm the When Harry Met Sally generation I guess. You didn't want to trash your friendship by having sex. And if you did have sex? The relationship had catapulted forward or you hid every time you saw him thereafter. Today? I think the kids are stuck with far more on their plate than they need.

Oh, and "glad?" You said, "beats...." he he he he he.

Is it me or is sex not so important any more? It just seems to not be a big deal anymore which, I for one think, is sad.

Your post certainly suggests you regret missing that opportunity.

As you know, I missed it too, being in my own world.

It does not seem to have hurt me any later in life.

And you can always go hog wild now, if you really want. Harley makes motorcycles for folks your size, too. Ride one to bike week at Daytona. . . it's just a few months away. I have no doubt you would receive a warm and enthusiastic welcome.

Oh, John, that ship has sailed! LOL!!! Me? A Motorcycle Mama? Not so much. I have a few college friends who would have been interesting friends with benefits. But even if that had been en vogue in 1985 I doubt I'd have partaken. I was a one man gal even back then. Just like I am now. So, the Harley trip is a no go for me. Sigh.....

One of the most empowering things about a commited relationship is that you can let your freak flag fly with your partner. Indulge it.

You do not want your freak flag tendancies to be a topic of discussion in your circle of friends.

I'm just sayin'
