A stranger is someone that we are not familiar with. But what is “familiar”? There are different levels of familiarity. You can be familiar with someone’s face or social media account, but that doesn’t mean that you know anything about their hopes, dreams, or life’s challenges.
You can be familiar with a coworker under office settings, but that is miles away from being familiar with them in an alcohol infused social setting. Just because you share a church, volunteer group, or physical activity doesn’t mean they will behave the same way outside of those social settings.
You don’t really know your friend’s friend, so if you are alone with them, they are a stranger.
Most everyone, except a few friends and a some family, are strangers. And strangers should always be treated with some level of wariness.
A former coworker was once sexually assaulted while sharing a ride with a another coworker. She didn’t know him outside of work, but they were going to the same place over the lunch break. So she figured that she would take his offer to drive together. He would end up groping her. She exited the car and took a cab back to the office.
Of course we don’t get to know people unless we let them in, but how we let them in and who we let in is what we can control.
We don’t need to be friends with everyone. Nor should we want to be.
One of Lola's biggest fears is tall men in military uniforms that she doesn't know... That and people wearing hats.
It's kind of silly, since one of her humans is a tall man in the army... So you would think after living with him for 7 years she'd be a little less concerned about the ones she hasn't met yet, but no.
Good news for Lola tho, my home comes complete with built in desensitization training. Since she had never met my husband until she started training, he makes for the perfect training aid. Especially since he loves dogs and doesn't mind helping me out with training when he is home.
Lola got here before he left for work, so I was able to put her on place and help her work through her fear while he finished getting ready to leave for the day.
Just having him walk around the house and go about his daily routine pretending Lola wasn't there helped me show her that there is nothing to fear. She definitely kept a close eye on him, but only let out one or two barks. Not too bad for day two.
Self discovery is an amazing experience... enriching and liberating and exhilarating all wrapped up at once.
We are not all mad and BAD, we some are simply unique.
Finally...ME explained. Finally some light on my relationships and their dynamics.
It too explains why ONE NIGHT STANDS have always seemed oh so abhorrent to me.
It also explains why I can sleep in a bed with another woman and NOT feel sexually ignited.
Never have and never will; its just how I've been "wired".
To me, sex has always been secondary, and always been void when the emotional connection is disconnected.
It's incredible how "normal" people just can't quite grasp this nuance of humanity.
Demisexuals are not choosing to abstain; they simply lack sexual attraction until an emotional, relationship is formed.
Mindless one night stands and random hook-ups just freak me out.
Fucking strangers is just too fucking strange for me to comprehend.
It makes my skin crawl.
