A celebate, lesbian, conservative, Catholic who finds what she is looking for in friendship.
St. Alered (the Patron Saint of Integrity), On Intimate Friendship
“It is no small consolation in this life to have someone you can unite with you in an intimate affection and the embrace of a holy love, someone in whom your spirit can rest, to whom you can pour out your soul, to whose pleasant exchanges, as to soothing songs, you can fly in sorrow… with whose spiritual kisses, as with remedial salves, you may draw out all the weariness of your restless anxieties. A man who can shed tears with you in your worries, be happy with you when things go well, search out with you the answers to your problems, whom with the ties of charity you can lead into the depths of your heart; . . . where the sweetness of the Spirit flows between you, where you so join yourself and cleave to him that soul mingles with soul and two become one.” (citation in NY Times article)
Maybe. contrary to When Harry Met Sally, men and women can be friends without sex.
