feeling

"You met me at a very strange time in my life, and I wasn't always... I used to be a very open kid. And since Gabriel died, I just stopped talking to people. I didn't see the point of it anymore. They didn't understand and, um... sex, for me became a way of feeling things without having to talk to anybody. And when I met you, I guess I had just gotten used to it... using reckless behavior as a way of feeling like I was still alive."

"Just because they're happy together, doesn't mean they're not sleeping with others."

“You mean as in Dan Savage’s idea that marriages should be non-monogamous? I can’t really see it working for heterosexual couples. — Not yet, but we couldn’t see premarital sex once either. We are a generation that believes in self-fulfillment, but also in commitment, and in their negotiations between these two ideas they will come up with new negotiations around monogamy...It doesn’t mean it will fit everybody. But I do believe it’s the next frontier.”
