When They Find Out....

I have been living this life for a while now. Like 6 yrs. going on 7 soon. Now, people that know me know, understand a treat me like anyone else. This sometimes causes people to be uncomfortable with me. See, I am a contemplative, religious, laity and I live a celibate life. Yes, I did willingly give up any physical intimacy with another person. I imagine people think that I should be this prim and proper, church lady, stuffy, close minded woman. Maybe a zealot to others. Not at all true in my case. In fact, I rather enjoy the laughing and yes a good beer too. I'm not pushy and if others were not told they would not even know what my lifestyle is like. I love people and every one of the different personalities they may have. I am the last person to judge anyone and know that if not by the grace of God I would/could make the same mistakes. Please remember that we are as human as everyone else. We just pray and talk with God more than others do. :) You can talk to me about anything and please don't run away or avoid me because you think I will preach to you. That is not my style and will leave that to the professionals. I will however, in the privacy of my own home pray for you.
Thanks for listening to me vent!:) Take care and be at peace all!:)

thecarer, thanks for your nice response. I can always use another friend. Especially one that will be respectful of me. :) I may be in touch and please do feel free to contact me anytime to chat or just to say hi!:) Take care and be at peace!

As you say your human too! so am i and I too am not your typical adult male but believe in live and let live but if you need help come to me!(no pun intended) I too enjoy a beer and am celibate but that's as finished relationship and not looking for another maybe in future but at present like how things are!

Thanks for the response! I love the honesty you sent to me. I was just feeling self pity is all. I'm better now and thanks! Take care and peace to you as well!:)

Won't run away, don't worry :) There's a whole section for asexuals, so giving up on it because of your beliefs is hardly strange in here. :p<br />
