jj - So glad you've joined us. I met you at one of the Dallas GTG. I believe the Makers Mark had its way with you that time. But you seemed like such a good person - suffering as we all have.
I'm just tickled that you're feeling this feeling! I will tell you what I told my sons growing up. "Don't be afraid to go out on a limb - that's where the fruit is!"
And if it doesn't work out exactly as you hope, well the ride will be worth it and you will learn some more on your journey through life.
Sending strength and peace and lots of !
Even if you can't control the world around you, you are still the master of your own soul.

Awwww, JJ. Yay!
I echo what everyone else has said. Go slow and let it happen.
And if things take a different turn, you will have new experience to draw upon next time.

Of course I remember nl! (It was Woodford Reserve - same State as MM! - haven't touched it since )
You, cd, & others are saying things that are helping me to reinforce, & confirm my quiet feelings. Take it slow. Enjoy.
Part of what's different is the ability to be sanguine about it - if it doesn't work out.
It lends a freeing and a refreshing...a strength aspect to the tingle.
Through all the struggle, may we all obtain a superpower: surviving infidelity, whose main weapon is:
the ability to let go.
Will be interesting to learn how it manifests - should things go forward into deep intimacy (it already seems intimate inside me - feels marvelous!)
Thanks to all! You're the bestest! I will update.
Headed out now for family, will be back in a couple of days...
