Apparently young, un-skeery poly people have their own unique "vibe," but this vibe is fragile and must be protected by warding off all the skeery old people who might crush it with their presence. I am quite sure I want no part of said vibe, and also pretty sure that it does not actually want any part of me. So I'm here to sign up as a skeery-old-poly-lady protegee, if you all will have me. Pretty please?
I don't know about you, but I'm skeerier by the month.
Can I really be a scary old poly lady if I'm taking my girlfriend to meet my mother this weekend?
After I stopped using hormonal contraception my love life flourished, right along with my sex drive. Now menopause is nearing, I'm sort of
dreading curious how long this fun part is going to last; how much me and my fun are actually my hormones and my fun; and what will happen when hormones are moving away.
I arrive at this point in life
skeery incredibly ignorant about this. Somehow it never seemed quite applicable to my situation and it never was the first order of business to find this out.
If it's inappropriate to ask, just do your thing to me, but as some of you have already visited menopause and teh land beyond it, I was wondering if you'd have any pointers, wise (or other) words to spare, or perhaps (reading) tips.
I know. Being a sopl I should be over it. But I'm not. Waiting for it to pass. Hoping fot it to be over soon. But no. No luck for this sceery gal.
It makes me rant. I'll keep my mouth shut till this one is over.
Skeery Old Poly Lady? Damn right!
Anybody got any suggestions on how to enjoy one's forty-fifth year? Besides indulging in art, literature, frolics of various sorts (especially the ones involving good theatre), and not suffering fools?
So far, I've bought a fringey halter-and-skirt-plus-shawl outfit in copper and red, figured out a truly cool Halloween costume with a friend (or perhaps just ritual garb, if the right rituals come along), gotten into a makeup-wearing phase again and feel dangerously babelicious, and have begun taking better care of myself again with moisturizer and drinking more water. Ideas for what to add would be lovely, thank you.
Oh, and I think we need a S.O.P.L. party somewhere, preferably somewhere where I will be. *grin*
