ibeeshell, don't hessitate to ask away.. this girl (through the past few months especially) has grown to be a sister to me. lol, and i'm looking out for her, so if anything you ask can help her, i'll answer,
agreed... she runs a high risk of being assaulted... it's hard to convey that concern to her without sounding like a parent, which is not something either of us wants
she's not pining after me. nor i for her. there have been several occasions that either or both of us have come close to crossing that line.. but we both know that what we have is too important to cross that line, and we have a laugh about it later (usually it's at a point of lonelyness, like after a breakup). she's not sparking my jealousy... she's telling me about this, because we gossip to each other about these aspects of our lives, just the friendship we have. the guy she's pining after sounds like an awesome guy, that she met through a family gathering.
i understand the sex addictions aren't necissarily about the pleasure... but as i said, it's not always (usually) a sexual thing, to me it appears more of an attention thing. to her as well.
