I wanted to take a moment to pause to commemorate our first anniversary as a forum. But I’m one or two months late, depending on how you count: it was about 14 months ago that we opened this forum; it was about 13 months ago that EP fully closed (the “EPocolypse” as it came to be called) and we were one of the “lifeboats” available to those who still wanted to seek or offer support in discussing their sexless marriage.
I’m so, so grateful that our members have embraced this forum and continue to support it with earnest and heartfelt contributions. After all it is YOU -- the members -- who make this site what it is. Sure, I “keep the lights on”, but a space -- no matter how welcoming -- is just a space unless it is filled with big-hearted people.
Also: a shout out to my moderators -- volunteers with a calm tone and a gentle touch who assist when there are various misunderstandings/miscommunications here. Thank you for your service!
At this time, we have over 60,000 posts in about 3,000 threads. We have about 700 registered users, about half of which have posted at least once, and about 100 of which have 100 posts or more. But the member count and post count do not capture the important thing: I really think we have the feeling of a community. Not only do we have the support side, but also room for socializing and kidding around. Again, that is not something I personally have created: it is something YOU -- the members -- have created here.
I wish you each the best in your current struggles with your sexless situations, and hope that each of you can find a path that leads to comfort and happiness. And that once you find that, that you continue to support others here seeking the same.

petrushka: Just saw the forecast for Mildura at 47C -- I hope you and Ms. Enna are going to be ok Baz. That's getting dangerous.

lifeinwoodinville: I last heard from mrslowmaintenance about a month ago. I have been in regular contact with her for the last year and a half. I feel comfortable in saying that her situation remains unchanged. If you want to know more PM me.

worksforme2: Hey baza,...I know it's hot and dry down under. N.C. is having record rainfall. I would gladly trade some rain for some sunshine....
