Now that I have opened my heart so much with a person that I shared exchanges with for many months, it is hard as all-get-out to end that connection. So many issues arise. How do I keep my heart open? Where does that love go now? Should we spend time as friends without doing exchanges now? I imagine she wants love and intimacy, so should I stay away so she can forget me and find a new partner? Should I do the same. One of the downsides of getting so close with ecstatic exchanges is that when the relationship ends, it's super hard to endure the end of that connection. It also feels very hard to find another partner who I can share the exchanges with next. Most new lovers seem to really want a lot of passion and intensity that is filled with arousal and orgasmic satisfaction. I'm so open to suggestions or comments on these difficulties. Got any?
