    Well, Not Really

    I am not really celibate for life.  I'm not really totally celibate right now.  But I've never seen how sex is so all fired great as people say it is.  I don't understand people who act like they  have to have sex or they're going to die.  I was married for seventeen years...

    I believe that God hasn't meant

    for me to be in relationships or have children like everyone else (some may call it the "gift of singleness). I think that I will fulfill my meaning in life (or destiny) by myself. I think that friends come into my life for me to inspire them and help them through something, but...

    I am a Christian. I have been one

    for 10 or 11 years. I struggle with same-sex attraction (though I didn't always consider it a struggle). I knew since I was five or six years old, that I was attracted to the same sex in the way that I thought of other males and my interpretation of something. I had no idea what...
