Have you ever just been a straight sucka for some good Lovin'??
Let's be honest, it wasn't really love. Purely physical, nothing emotional about it. I never understood why it's considered taboo for women to simply want to experience the act of sex without further involvement? Men do it and they're considered to be "acting like a man". However a woman who acts in the same manner is considered less than desired.
I say you should do what you need to in order to be happy (without hurting someone else). I've been guilty of the "crime" of finding pleasure in being pleasured ;) There have been one or two gentlemen that I've dated and decided I no longer had any mental interest in but the sex was good so I kept them around for my in-between-time. One guy in particular knew all the right spots and I got off every time... he made sure of it. But once we left the bedroom our time was just filled with awkward conversation of no real value. We came to the agreement that we both know what we enjoy doing together, so why try to make it more than that? Let's just keep this thing up (pun definitely intended) until we can no longer milk the cow!
It is much easier to be honest with someone (and yourself) than try to force a meaningful relationship out of the act of good sex. You're just going to find that it's everything but meaningful when the lights come back on (or maybe you're the type to keep the room lit... whatever you prefer).
Anyway, I like this arrangement and in the meantime I'm keeping my options open. Since my "little girl" is already being taken care of, I can focus on finding someone who stimulates the other aspects of my life. And when I find him, I'll say good bye to my gentlemen friend. Until then... he keeps me satisfied!
