Anyone practice celibacy? I think I’m gonna start. I love doing the deed but I think I get emotionally attached to quickly and it’s easier to move on from guys if there was no sex involved.

I don’t practice celibacy per se, but I’m definitely more selective on who and when I have sex especially now that I am more serious about finding someone

There was a whole thread about this a few weeks ago... it got kinda heated 🤷🏽‍♀️

Been celibate for about a year and I’ll admit it’s not a walk in the park. It’s very possible but you have to be dedicated and intentional about your commitment. I also stopped because I get emotionally attached easily and adding sex to the mix typically clouds my judgment especially when dealing with a guy who isn’t necessarily the best for me. I hope to keep it up until Im ready to settle down

Why practice celibacy when you can just pick guys that you won't get attached to but do find attractive? I kept a few boy toy(s) growing up (1 at a time only) that were specifically for hooking up. Each had a trait that I didn't want in my ideal husband (age, personality, etc) so it was easy to not get feelings. I enjoyed their company both on the bed and off, but it was easy to part ways if needed. When we were out, we’d be friends and play wingman for the other. It was quite empowering (think Samantha from Sex & The City). I'd start each fling stating the rules. No seeing other people, if you do find someone then be cool and break it off between us, even a simple text message was fine. Always wish the best for each other. Always respect each other. Always be cool about it and don't get clingy and crazy. Get tested before we start this. It was also always at his place as that was my way of staying safe. I had great experiences and men loved it. Only 1 fell for me (3 years younger than me and an intern at a different company in the same city) but it was cute and flattering. I fell for none.
When I was ready and found a guy I was actually interested in who had the qualities I wanted, I did the normal thing and dated and married him.

I’m tracking down an article that’s been on my mind but I can’t find it for the life of me. It’s about domestic expectations of men and women, and how often men will express eagerness for domestic and work equality, but stop short of actually doing more domestic work. Domestic things still need to get done, and women fill that gap. It’s a lot of small things, but when you zoom out the collective impact shows massive impact. Death by 1000 paper cuts.
