I think after a couple of years in here it's time to update this. I'm 6+ years out of the only LTR I've ever had with a woman. That was my awakening. Before that I was "experimenting". However 6 years living with someone teaches you a lot about your life, even when that person cheats on you for 5 of them.
Ah! But who is bitter.
After that I spent a couple of years "healing", but the last few have been about meeting new women and having some fun. I've expanded my horizons, and, who knows? Maybe it's time to find one special woman to be with.
