On the way to Bozeman, earlier this year.
I remember being warned about the emotional consequences that follow sex, but what about the sexual consequences of emotions? We're all standing on a two-way street. In my pursuit of emotional and intellectual connection I often find myself closer to people than I intended to be (although I should be noticing a pattern), and I can't really distinguish a feeling of emotional kinship from a feeling of attraction. I don't know how to draw those lines except by trial and error. I don't trust myself when it comes to other people, my lens is a little too warped by desire and suspicion.
