Although I have been on this forum for a very short while I have come to realize from the many heartfelt tales of sexual privation that we all seem to be existing in a purgatory of sorts. Of course not in the biblical parlance of heaven and hell but rather a place of compromise, frustation, despair and an over whelming sense of ennui. A place to be sure is just as horrid.
All of us dream of a better way out of this self created purgatory but because of the fear of the unknown or a complacency drilled into us all over the years few try to take a chance. Our disappointments in our relationships act as an anchor and drag us down.
We all claim to stay because of children, unrequited love of the partner, societal pressures or financial considerations. All of these may be vaid but as the years pass and nothing really changes suddenly time and aging will take away every opportunity to escape. This is why we all must make those tough decisions and this forum may give us the impetus to do so.
We group together here in hopes to gain solace in our individual issues. Also, in happier moments to applaud those who have taken some action to escape.
It is my frevent hope that all here will collectively be able to act to achieve that measure of happiness in their relationaships which has thus far eluded them.
