This is the list of questions for this week.
1. When you have experienced sexual difficulty, how did you overcome it?
There are four things we do. One is to create a good place to sit comfortably to acknowledge there is a problem and make sure your partner knows what it is. We settle ourselves and bring a sense of calm to the communication. We keep talking and talking until we can see the solution. Then we take steps to correct the problem.
That or we will have a blazing row which neither of us enjoy. If we yell we tend not to listen. We both grow defensive and the whole thing blows up in our faces. So not a good alternative as we both avoid letting anger get in the way.
I have one rule, ‘Never let the sun go down on your wrath.’ That was something my Nana used to say all the time. She also said ‘words are like arrows and can harm a person. They are impossible to take back’ My nana knew what she was talking about.
2. How do you like to reconnect with your significant other?
I do something nice, like book a table at our favourite restaurant or make a special meal at home. We have a fire pit and we like to spend time watching the stars or gazing into the flames. Of course we make smores or wrap a potato in foil and cook it in the embers. Phew are you now seeing food is a big theme for us. Bring me food and it will help everything.
3. “It isn’t what you do, it’s the way that you do it.” How do you like to be done?
Medium rare? Sticks and stone may break my bones but whips and chains excite me.
4. If you are married, were you ready for marriage?
First time around I had a princess wedding but I was not ready for exactly what it meant.
5. If you are not married, are you ready for it? What makes you say that?
S. and I want to marry and are planning a wedding but we don’t want to confront the kids or rush into it. I would much rather have a collar ceremony and there are quite a few to choose from. They are beautiful.
Bonus: “It’s complicated.” In what way does this describe your current (or most recent) relationship?
Wow, this is soooo much a question about us. The way we got together, me moving to the US of A. Learning all about the kids and being respectful of the fact their mother died and I was not trying to take her place. It is a fact that when you fall in love on the internet the people come to life in reality. It is learning to blend everything together but the kids figure the greatest.
