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!
Welcome! So glad you joined us. Wow, 2 years of lurking? What finally got you to join?
Thanks for sharing a bit about your marriage. As you know, you have come to a good place with many people who will be eager to help you along – and also look forward to getting to know you better and learning from you as well!
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).
