Let’s get personal for a moment, shall we? I’d like to tell you a little about my own intimate relationships, and why my philosophy surrounding love is part of what makes me good at what I do.
As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I sometimes have clients assume that I am single, and just doing this “until I meet the right person.” While I do believe that many people have just one single soul mate, and are beyond content with that person, I am a bit of a different breed. I’ve known from an early age that I’m not meant to share love and intimacy with just one person, and the times I’ve tried to be monogamous have left me feeling trapped and repressed.
Does that mean I’m afraid of commitment? That’s a common misconception about polyamorous people such as myself. I have relationships in my life which have been going strong for many years, with other people who share my lifestyle. Watching those relationships grow and change as our lives grow and change, has been one of the most rewarding experiences, to me.
Personally, I think that this outlook has been one of the things that allows me to find my work so fulfilling. I view all kinds of relationships as being valuable, and I don’t believe that intimacy is only meaningful within a conventional monogamous bond. Because I love freely in my personal life, there’s no reason I can’t extend that love to the many wonderful subs I see for business…though our time together may be short, the memories can last a lifetime 😉
