And it was good!! It feels really nice to be having fun dating again after breaking up with my longer term, long distance boyfriend back in December.

But yeah, this new guy and I talked pretty openly and frankly about boundaries and where I was at, enthusiastic and verbal consent was asked for and double checked, and I had fun!* I slept over and it was just really, really nice. I forgot how there can be good casual sex that doesn’t have to feel like a drunken one night stand, but can be kind and caring without Huge Emotions.

Also, Phantom Thread is a great movie, really nuanced gender portrayals, amazing acting, THE CLOTHES, sound design was incredible - it subverted a lot of my expectations while keeping the people *real*.

*TMI time but I’m feeling pretttty good about myself after having had sex once last night and twice this morning 😎
