Who wrote that? As soon as I saw "we've all been there" I thought, "Oh?"

And then I realized that I must be from another planet.

I've visited two shrinks in my life. I was 18 when I saw the first one (voluntarily), and told him I thought I might be gay. He sat me down and asked, "Do you fuck or suck?" That threw me big time, because I had done neither, and wasn't even sure I was gay. So I walked out.

I was about 25 when I saw the second shrink (also voluntarily) and told him I was worried that I might be in love with another guy. I did all the talking for two sessions, at the end of which he said, "Well, you know it all, Gary. You've analyzed your situation very well and there's nothing I can add." However, there was one thing he added, and that was his hefty bill.

Pardon me if I seem a little skeptical.

Very insightful. I think I will revisit our contract, thanks to you. It's a good idea to just check in now and then. Too often we get on autopilot and forget where we are going.
Is this the stuff that you are teaching? or learning?

Boundary violations in a relationship?? Whoa. No wonder why psychologists charge so much ;-).

COOP the single guy doesn't have much to add to this one.

Dangit I'm forgetting things again.
Who is the hot hot HOTTY at the end?
He goes nicely with an iced Americano. Hee Hee.

STEW. . . These are ideas we discuss, mull over, and share from our own perceptions in class and mostly in our regular group therapy sessions.

And YES I do use these ideas and principles with my students in the course I teach. Obviously the class is a mix of men and womnen, str8s , gays, whatever. . .the underlying ideas apply to everyone, making the necessary changes as to orientation.. . and each one's personal idiocyncracies.

I just wanted you to know that i found this posting, and the one immediately before, very helpful in some issues I'm facing with my gay-bisexual-straight(?) roommates and friends at college.
The Gaytwogether site is awesome as well. Thanks very much.
