Single Couple

Since I left my last long-term romantic partnership, I've been eager for physical connection. But most of my friends are people in couples. There's a certain comfort to hanging out with mostly functioning romantic partners. I can feel their love and it reminds me of what it feels like to have a steady human companion.

But that doesn't do much for my physical desires. And the regular glimpses of human companionship remind me that I'm alone. That's not always the worst thing. But I am alone, hanging out with couples, and tonight it hit me - maybe I should make more of an effort to hang out with single women?

While imagining the seduction of wives and girlfriends I know can fuel my fantasy life, I don't like to imagine the social fallout, even if they were all poly. I don't think I want to have sex as much as I want intimacy.

I'm single and most of my friends are single. It never fails, I dont care how much you like the couple, if you're hanging with them, the third wheel blues eventually sets in. Single friends are doin it for themselves!
