Or the guy you may have known for a while who only texts you to see if you want to "hang" but has never asked you out on a real date.
Or the guy who you've had a major crush on despite the fact that he is unavailable in some way but you just cannot deny the chemistry.
So, if you do feel more open and expansive, it is very likely that you are going to feel a desire to connect on an emotional level with the person that you are connecting with on a physical level.
If you relate to this, I want to tell you that you didn't do anything wrong.
My encouragement to you is to explore ways to experience sensuality and express your sexuality in ways that don't make you feel bad about yourself! Navigating the waters of love and sex can be treacherous, so go easy on yourself! Write in your journal what you learned from the experience and how it is helping you to clarify what you really want 3.
Have fun, date, flirt and make a commitment to be self-honoring and authentic when it comes to hooking up. Create some hooking up guidelines that honor what is true for you that can be your compass as you move forward horizontally ;) Take the reigns of your sexuality back into your own hands and enjoy a ride that feels more in alignment with the Truth of who you are and the kind of intimacy you want to share with someone.
Otherwise, it can just feel empty and meaningless and honestly, is it really worth it?
Perhaps you draw the line at having casual sex, but consider whether drawing it even sooner could be an act of self-love and self-honoring.
