Needing Emapthy

Message reputation : 100% (3 votes)
My GSA experience has been a mixture of euphoria, passionate love, anxiety, and confusion. I am a 35 year old married mom of two, which I was raised as an only child by my biological mother and step-father. Last fall, a half-brother, 30 years old and married without children, was in contact with me wanting to have a sibling in his life. We share a biological father (there’s one other known 11 year old sibling) who was not involved in my life and very little with his. Upon meeting, we experienced stages of GSA progression (extreme physiological and emotional compulsions leading to an intimate, sexual relationship) and are now able to control our urges to continually be together. Within the last several months, our plans to have one another in each other’s life have evolved to face reality that we can’t live together without losing friends and family. However, his wife left him this week out of fear of our GSA. My husband has been very supportive, understanding the scientific basis of this phenomenon. We are listing our house to sell this week, so that we can move closer to my half-brother. I joined to learn of successful GSA relationships, if living separately or what arrangements work.

Welcome to Kindred Spirits, w110knm. I’ve upgraded your membership.

We have many GSA couples in the forum. I think you can certainly find empathy here.

Best,
UN

Welcome! We can discuss this more in the member areas, specifically the Your Story and GSA sections. It sounds like your husband might be open to an ethical nonmonogamy situation, specifically one of polyamory. Like I said, we can discuss more in the member area.

Thank you all for kindly welcoming me. It’s been quite isolating having no one who understands. I look forward to engaging in this community and learning how others cope.

Since I am an ally, I cannot empathize, but I am very happy that your husband is supportive, and that you are even able to move closer to your brother! Sorry that things didn't go so positively for your brother's marriage, as they did with yours.

Welcome to KS w110knm. I'm glad to hear that your husband is supportive of you and your GSA relationship with your half brother. I hope you find this to be a comfortable place to ask questions and seek advise from others.
