Thank you thank you thank you! The changes over the past few decades have made my life nothing short of amazing and this piece sums it up quite nicely. I was especially keen to read your comments about space and safety. Whether I am in a relationship or not, it is good to know that I am free to explore whatever I wish without fear of judgment or ridicule. The upside is that I have immense freedom to change as circumstances and my feelings dictate. This has also change the way I define loyalty and fidelity. Those terms are laden with outdated meaning that no longer feels right for me. The downside has been a lot of heartache and anger in the wake of those changes. Not everyone is on board with my freedom — and having the space and safety to do so — but I hope the women I meet will evolve to accept the fluidity of it all the way I have.
