Ditto, DD. Except my long time of celibacy ended a couple years ago, and I celebrate that every day.
And having great love & passion in my life now is something that I am so grateful for.
I think it is up to the needs of the individual. But for me, Love without Passion will waste away. This could get very deep.... I'll keep it simple...
You can tell how much Passion is in my lfe... I'm replying to a 2 year old post.....LOL
