Perhaps we need to define intimacy.
You're so darned smart, Wondergirl! I wish that you were my neighbor as well as my friend on the local level!
Yes, perhaps intimacy needs to be defined here. I wrote my original question very late when I was very tired. But, I'm not going to change it. It stands as perhaps a harbinger for thoughts and ideas yet to come...
Perhaps "intimacy" means something different for a man as compared to a woman?
I'm just throwing that out there...
