I Just Left Aff - And Found This Place!

After being an "On-and-Off" member the AFF website for the past three/four years, I just left it - finally. It's like a strange, addictive entity that's hard to shake. I joined because I was in an awkward position in my marriage, which I would come to learn - I was only one of many. The classic "sexless marriage" - which, I can genuinely say is a situation I do live with. AFF was a supplemental experience. And I have to say - it did me a whole lot of good. While I didn't make it my intention to get myself into heaps of trouble, I did go through a process of self-discovery that I can say I appreciated. I'm not sure if I'll be able to stay away completely....but for now, I'm doing alright.

As I was so interactive on that site for that span of time, I've found myself trying to fill the void. It's an odd void to try to fill, given the unique nature of it. Hence, I found myself joining random websites just to be part of a community of like-minded people. Through that - I ended up here!

Not that this is the same sort of community (obviously, AFF is rather explicit). But this website has got it's own flavour and I'm interested to find my way around and learn more. I think it's going to grow on me. I've enjoyed reading many posts and seeing the diverse ways people are sharing pieces of themselves. It may not be AFF....but it will be another part of my journey, if only for a season.

To all those who maybe have followed a similar path, thanks for reading. :) I look forward to reading more about you all too.
