Appreciating being here

    I also have been informed that the proper etiquette is to introduce oneself. I’ve been lurking around for about 2 years since this site was recommended to me by a mentor during my engagement. (I’ve also recommended this site to some of my other engaged friends so I don’t want to be too specific here!) I was raised in a sheltered Christian family and was pretty clueless with regards to sex so started coming here for somewhere safe to get answers and perspectives. Since our wedding, I’m thankful that we’ve had a great experience with the marriage bed, particularly emotionally, with similar wants and desires and the feeling of building great intimacy and closeness through it. My body doesn’t always respond the way my mind thinks it should, so I’m still here for that. I’m also looking to keep improving and growing this aspect of our marriage so it keeps on being good past our first couple years and early 20s!

      Well, by lurking for 2 years I really just mean I first found it 2 years ago and then every few months or so I would look something up on here. I joined because I thought I’d benefit from personalizing some questions!

        Congratulations!  I wish there had been such a thing as TMB when we were first married.

              Welcome! I too wish that such a great Forum were available early in our marriage. Learn, grow and be blessed.

                  Welcome. Glad to have contributions from the younger audience. If I recall correctly, the switch to this new format in early 2019 was done, in part, with the hope to draw some of the younger crowd to TMB. Unfortunately, based on a previous poll, younger Millennials and Generation Z are still absent. Hoping to see that change, as young adults have important viewpoints they can contribute.

                  Oh, and definitely envious of finding this place so early in your marriage (or really, before you got married).

                  As a millennial, I thought it seemed like most people interacting were older and had been married for a while. I actually saw a poll that reflected that just this evening. It was something like 70% of the people here have been married 20+ years! Glad to see a diversity in voices here on TMB. 🙂

                  @PK:

                  You are referring to this poll: https://qna.themarriagebed.com/poll/how-long-have-you-been-married/

                  I hadn’t voted yet, so I did and can now see the results! 😀
