Your description is much like my path, thank you for sharing. I do not really miss the cuddling and all part either, I must be one set in my ways woman!! I love all aspects of this time in my life (I do believe I am into my crone stage).

I hear ya Mike Stivic. 21 years and counting for me. Started out as I needed to not be in a relationship after my daughter's father, for my own well-being. Then, it just became the norm. I was raising a child as a single mom and didn't want people coming and going in my life, which would affect both me and her. Now that she is an adult, I am just too darned set in my ways, and too old to really truly want to compromise for a relationship, which is how it would have to be.
The one thing I really miss as well is the cuddling, comraderie, partnership. Otherwise, I am peachy.
Its part of an entire system though, for example: I don't smoke. I don't drink. I don't use drugs. I eat organic foods, probiotic yogurts, and stay away from fluoridated water.

There are plenty of Hindu and Buddhists monks who don't harm society by being celibate.
I wouldn't blame the problems of the Catholic priests on celibacy.
