I'm trying to figure things out. I don't have many close friends. Aspergers/Autism and has always created problems for me when it comes to maintaining and building friendships. I do have a few friends, but all are living long distances away. My 2nd wife and I have been arguing all the time for weeks. I have gotten so tired of it. It seems like everything I do she is mad at me. I can't do anything right. I try to talk to her about it and she's all about blaming...naming who is at fault. Sometimes
I've been reading about those women who were kept prisoner for 10 years in Cleveland. What a disturbing and scary story! To think that something like this could be going on next door and in all that time nobody questioned, nobody followed up on their gut feelings?
I've never been through anything as traumatic as that, obviously, but I have been through some things and I can tell you what those women have ahead of them. Right now they are in the news. Everyone is sympathetic.

I also believe in God, because I have traveled the Crow Creek Pass in Alaska, and I was in such awe, that I knew there must be a God.
If god was that powerful and created this place in Alaska then he must be a sadomasochist
This is what I want. I want to be friends first before I start making out sexually with someone. I want to get to know them first. I want to be with someone and feel safe. I want to take the time to let love and desire grow. And I don't want to have sex until I am ready. Is that too much to ask?
Apparently it is. It seems I am caught between two contradictory messages. One message says don't have sex until you are married. Well, there are several problems with that. First

I live in the country, and there are a lot of animals running around after dark, such as deer, raccoon, even turkey. Or there's snow and ice. I don't panic, I just instinctively know what the correct course of action is and follow through.

Again, I don't mean to make this personal. Also, if this is just the matter of misunderstanding, that's fine and I'm sorry about the interruption.
I haven't posted for awhile because I was busy with a play and also I needed to rest my hands. I am having trouble learning to accept the fact that I can't go full-bore 8 hours at work and then come home and fool around on the computer. So every now and then I have to take a "sabbatical" from the Internet. Not such a bad idea.
I am still with the Unitarians and feel more and more at home. I still occasionally meet with people from my old church who have pretty much accepted
