I don't need advice (I am a counselor by the way)...I wanted to hear from someone who could understand what I have been going through.

Huh? Don't cultivate a relationship? That is what a relationship IS....cultivation in part.
I am not in a relationship.

> Parable: When a farmer cultivates soil it puts oxygen into it and makes it more fertile so the new crop will flourish. If the soil is not cultivated, and no seed is planted, the weeds will grow. You pull the weeds out one at a time, making sure you go down to the root each time, and if you get them before they go to seed, they'll never come back.

> Only you know what the weeds in your life are, and only you can pull them out. you would have to define "weed." Basically the "weed" in my life (as I stated) is being alone and without sex.

I'd say sex is a weed, unless it is a seed that you have carefully nurtured, and until you meet your charming prince, I'd consider it dormant.

I had already said that I was celibate.

There isn't any pleasure in being alone OR without sex.
