I flagged this comment because it doesn’t actually contribute to the thread.

I flagged my own post. I saw no other recourse to my crass comment.


In reality, I probably do regret any time I contribute to the sex-sensitive threads. I'm certainly not a fount of relationship wisdom, I can barely get along with myself.

That must make it awfully tough to enjoy porn.

 Like my dear mother always says, when it comes to one’s own post, ‘tis better to flag than flog.

Did the OP talk to her SO yet?
Communication is key.

I'm starting to worry because I haven't received my "save the date"card.

Pretty sure they're just still trying to figure out the safest way to climb in a party of 3.

The key word is trust. If my partner and I are having issues in our relationship related to trust and negative behaviors, probably not the best idea to climb with the opposite sex. Accusing your partner of wanting to sleep with anyone he/she climbs with while you are seeking out members of the opposite sex to go solo with for the day and giving your SO vague information could be argued to be intentionally utilizing triangulation and other control tactics for emotional control and manipulation.

There are definitely appropriate and healthy ways to climb with the opposite sex. Communication, respect and honesty are key. 

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.

There is ZERO tolerance for being a jerk in the Women's Forum.
