It wasn't exactly a decision...
more like an acknowledgement of my unabashed appreciation.
It's not exactly preference either, so I can't say that I am one way or the other.
Maybe I should finish up my thoughts on this in a dicussion forum...? I dunno.
but say, like with you? You have got the most gorgeous, widest, brown eyes, and I expect they sparkle like quartz, with flecks of yellow light. You also have shown great compassion, fortitude, and generosity. Just so you know that it's not just that you've got great "lights".
(I'm just going by your Pip-pic, but truly, just lovely, Sue.)
And I'm a hand-holder, cuddle-hungry sorta being too. Women are very good at that. I'm not saying men aren't, but with women, there's less rude bumping that is not always what I want.
So yep, I think it's pretty obvious that my dual-option-mode has always been apparent. To everyone else. I love the combination of strength and vulnerability apparent in so many women. I very much love and admire men who also display those qualities. I happen to think it takes a great deal of strength to be open regarding that vulnerability.
I just thought I'd announce it. Because I happen to think it's okay.
If it's not okay, then my apologies if I've broken a forum guideline--and I'm also okay with my announcement being moved--but only if I thought I'd made someone truly squeamish.
It wasn't a bid for deliberate shock. I just wanted to do this for me, and for other folks, who might feel like they are all alone.
So, now ya'll know I mean it when I say:
Love to all.
And oh I do love you all. It's just not always in an intimate way.
