I was feeling quite honored this week that a beautiful woman was confiding in me.
Then a few minutes later, she went cold.
I didn’t understand it. I wondered what I did wrong.
I find emotional intimacy with an amazing woman so intoxicating that I want it to go on forever. It always hurts me when she shuts down.
I talked about all this with a mutual friend and he explained that the woman wasn’t sharing so much as venting. That’s how she ran. She’d connect deeply with you for a few minutes and then she’d hit her limit and shut down.
Something weird happened to me in shul recently. I was embracing a male friend and got so carried away that I kissed his shoulder. I have no idea how that happened. I hope it doesn’t mean I’m gay.
