I like hearing different opinions about things. A recent thread about men being cautious and/or avoiding being alone with women made me think about how I feel about this. I still tend to err on the side of caution on this but hearing what everyone had to say helped me to examine my own beliefs and relax . I have been talking with my wife about this and she told me to not loosen up. If I am alone with a women for a purpose there shouldn't be a problem so why worry. At 3.a.m. on Monday a good friend knew he was having a medical emergency. For whatever reason he started calling everyone on his speed dial instead of 911. The first person he reached was a young women who came over and took him to the hospital where he had emergency surgery. He is back home now and doing well. My wife and I bought food over to him last night. The same young women has been staying in the house with him and taking care of him while she telecommutes for her job. I realized this morning that it never occured to me that this might be a dangerous situation for them, and I don't think it is. I am really happy that she is there taking care of him. Some of you may not think this is much of a big deal but for me it has made me just a little more free. It feels good to let go of old ideas. Thanks TB for helping open my mind in this area. And thanks to Titus for starting the share the love thread that got me thinking about this. Anyone else have a similiar experience.
