It’s been a number of months since my last post but it’s time to plunge headlong into this once again and resume chronicling our life.
After a number of months of a very vibrant and exciting triad relationship, it all came to an abrupt end at the beginning of 2017. There is no denying that the triad was fun and interesting and stimulating. But communication was difficult, trust was challenging and ultimately what we decided, as a couple, was that the two of us were greater than 1+1+1. We do miss the frequent trips to Manhattan, perusing art galleries or trying new restaurants. Even the Sunday night ritual of watching West World won’t quite be the same.
Soon after our extended triad ended we made one final attempt to explore that concept with no success. It was at that point we were enveloped in some familial challenges that truly tested our relationship. It meant the waning of sexual appetite and drive, the stress of not only reduced physical interaction but also the health and well being of those around us. As we navigated through that metaphorical abyss, we also came to understand our own beings better and worked on the communication between us. Kink was, is and will always be a part of who we are as a couple but we also realized that more importantly, the touch of a hand, the feel of breath next to skin, the comfort of strong arms and gentle hands around each other was the comfort and solace we needed navigating through difficult times. It wasn’t about being tied up or spanked or wearing outfits for each other. It was the simplicity of our own interaction. There was also the introduction of a new family member into our midst who has changed our lives in joyful ways that can never be properly articulated.
Yes, I know what you must be thinking. A dominant woman or couple should be walking around with a Doberman or Rottweiler. But the fact is, the joy of a you puppy, so dependent on your kindness and willing to love in the most unconditional sense is what we need. It added an element to our lives that was lacking. It made us realize that the people in our lives, past and present, are wonderfully flawed people, as we are too. We still love them, may never see some of them again, but will always have faith that they will live happy and rewarding lives.
So. We’re back. Moving past the challenges of the past, ecstatic at the times we did have and reengaging and repurposing our lives for one another. And who knows, along the way, maybe we’ll reconnect with the past.
