My biggest fear when I was mate seeking was that I would fall in love with a man's soul, but that we would lack chemistry, and have a sexless marriage. I have been in love with men, whom I was nonetheless not physically attracted to. Love is more than friendship, for me, if I feel that I share a home with a soul, that we have known each other forever, and can tell each other anything. I prayed and prayed to find a man whose mind dovetailed my own, and whose bodily presence made my stomach flutter. I have lost many things in life, and have not gotten what I wanted in many departments; but in this one respect, I am incomparably blessed.

I love my husband more today than I did when we first met. I still feel weak in the knees as I watch him move himself through space. We fit together like hand in glove.
