(Quote) Kathryn-328433 said: Ok, so I'm just going to come right out with it--How do you manage yearning s for physical intimacy? This has become my biggest challenge. I never took a vow of chastity and I yearn for a physical relationship There, I said it. Am I alone in having these feelings? Kate Widowed 5 years, 7 children ages 23, 21, 18, 14, 9, 8, & 8
Um, I definitely don't mean to sound flippant, or inappropriate, but my thought on this is....it's like the chocolate covered cherries that come out at Christmas. I just LOVE those things.
The whole rest of the year, I want chocolate covered cherries. I'm just waiting for Christmas to get the first box!
It is O.K. and normal to want the chocolate covered cherries - there's nothing abnormal about that.
In July, if I think about them, it's O.K., because I know that eventually, I will have them, just not right now. The likelihood that you will be without for the rest of your life is practically nil.
You're young, pretty, and you'll find the right guy. Just like my Brach's cherries will come out every year at Christmas...In July I just remind myself that I will get to have as many as I want when it is time, and go on about my business. It kind of gives you something to look forward to. But, that's just my opinion.
