Switching from enjoyment to emotion
Switching from enjoyment to emotion I'm not sure what I'm looking for in here. Maybe just finding like-minded people to share some thoughts & feelings. I'm a celibate gay man, religious (tantric)... I've lived for 7 years pretty much alone, and found out needing platonic, partly physical friendship. But as I've been looking around people, I've found they often want way too much. But I also don't think it's either everything or nothing. I mean I miss human warmth and touch. My celibacy won't break from those things, because I'm very happy with it. For me it's not a way to 'mortify' carnal needs, instead it's a way of life that I like. It brings more subtle things up in a friendship. To my disappointment it's not what gay men usually tend to prefer. It could be this time, which is so overly-sexually centered. But sometimes I think people are too much following some formulas in their social life, interpreting these formulas to be their actual needs... I don't know and I don't want to judge anyone! I'd just like to find romance without sex and subtle ways to experience the warmth and caring. Having said 'romance' I have to specify however, that my religion has changed in me the fact, that I don't want anymore an exclusive relationships, I don't want to belong to someone, or bind anyone. If the heart functions well, then I think there is room for some romance with every living being (at least this is my ideal that I recognize).
