Re: ...but what if they don't respond...???

I get how the word “indifference” causes some hesitation in some folks. I honestly can’t remember where I first heard the term used in that way. But I do know it is a reflection of the basic rule of relationship that we see also described as the HD/LD dynamic. And that is simply that the one most wi...

Re: ...but what if they don't respond...???

, I just see what I understand "boundaries" to be. In my opinion, it could be seen as a boundary of sorts. It’s a personal boundary on ones own actions, set my oneself. When I have read others speak of “boundaries” here, particularly when referencing the book of the same title, it always ...

...but what if they don't respond...???

"yeah, outcome indifference sounds good....but what if they don't respond positively?" This is a question I'm quite sure any of us high desire husbands who have tried to modify our behavior toward the outcome indifference model have asked ourselves - probably over and over. I know it has b...

Re: What Effects Have You Seen from

It was like he was able to make responsible decisions or something! :o I don’t know anything about “purity culture”, but I do know that the above is true. That is what should be taught. Along with the potential consequences and the certain ones. One of the problems with teaching kids about sex is t...

Re: Radical Sex: God's foundation for a healthy marriage -- book report

“Because of sexual immorality” is KJV, and if that were the only translation, I could certainly see SLS point, on that verse. But it does not fit the later verses. And, as you said, it was written to a different audience, who also had a different view of male / female interactions. Many of not most ...

Go shoot something, the bigger the gun, the better. Hitting a target requires focus so that part helps. Making that target something that explodes, even better.

Re: Radical Sex: God's foundation for a healthy marriage -- book report

I’ve not read the book and probably won’t, but I have some disagreement with your thoughts below. Then they say "Sex has many benefits, but the primary one, from God's perspective, is avoiding temptation." WHAT??? A benefit, for sure, but does that that outweigh sex as an expression of lov...

Re: 09/20/2021 - Attractiveness with Aging?

Physical beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so no answer is right or wrong. In general I think the male mind and eye is drawn to youth and the promise of fecundity. Female mind’s eye may be more drawn to security and providence that typically comes with some maturity in the male. Then there are e...

Re: 09/16/2021 - Have you noticed "sexual seasons" in your marriage?

I will use some economic terms here - I have seen macro and micro seasons in our marriage. The macros being more slow attitudinal changes that are years in their development. Maybe somewhat resembling the typical “phases” that are often mentioned, but not necessarily in that order, though they do so...
