NVR - Relationship question
This is really random, but I thought I'd post this question and see y'alls thoughts . . .
I'm 31 yo, have only dated men and have been single for the past 3 years, with a few unsuccessful dating attempts over the past 2 years (for more details see the Online Dating Catastrophe thread). Physical attraction isn't the most important quality to me, since I'd much rather have an amazing conversation than a great roll in the hay. That being said, I've always been able to appreciate a beautiful woman as well as a handsome man.
As I've gotten older, I've started questioning what I want in terms of a relationship. I'm not looking for a husband or the proverbial big house with 2.5 kids. I'd rather have a partner with whom to share my life. If they like me enough (and I don't grow tired of them), maybe we can grow old together. I caught myself saying the other day "I hope I meet someone one day . . . ." instead of "the man of my dreams . . . ."
I wonder if maybe the person I meet one day could be a woman. Although I've never been a lesbian (minus one drunk experience in college that doesn't count), I'm certainly not opposed to having a woman as my partner. I've had two different female acuaintances who, also in their 30s, fell in love with a woman after having been straight all their lives. In both cases, the women met due through work.
So, my question is purely philosophical at this point, as I haven't met anyone that strikes my fancy, but I'm just curious . . . . what are you thoughts? Has anyone actually dealt with this or been in this situation? Hopefully not TMI, but how does sex work in a case like this? I mean, I'd need a manual to help me figure out what to do with a woman - "hold on honey, let me turn to page 46 to figure out what to do next".
Just in case you're wondering - yes, I do tend to overthink things :D
