Is comfortable enough

Let me begin with the fact that I never (or maybe very rarely) dream about people I'm interested in or people I know in any kind of sexual or relationship-y way. However, last night I had what amounted to the sweetest, most realistic dream about one of my own. I don't want to mention his name here right now, but he has appeared on these pages before.

There was a lot more going on in the dream, but I'll just stick to the important parts. I was hanging out with my gentleman friend, and we were discussing our mutual friends. I confess that this one friend has been driving me crazy, and suddenly he kisses me. Full on. The odds of this particular boy doing this in real life are so slim I might win the lottery first (only b/c he is uber shy and wrapped up in layers of awkwardness). We kissed for a long time, and then pulled away and kissed again. We were happy. We were also very adult about it and honest. He looks at me, smiling, and says how comfortable that was. I smile because I was thinking the same thing. It wasn't full of passion or that "thing" that makes you think you might die if you don't kiss them again. It was just like coming home. It was the feeling that I could kiss that person any time I saw them just because I wanted to.

So here's my question to you all. Would comfortable be enough for you?

I would like comfortable actually! We would also have to have a little passion and sizzle thrown in there though!

I think it's better than it being all passion and then all of a sudden you realize you can't "just be comfortable".

This is something I've definitely battled with in my head. My most recent Ex and I had a "comfortable" relationship- hence why when he cheated and we broke up, I could never just leave it be. Whenever we see each other at parties on the weekend we end up going home with each other. You would think the morning after would be awkward or angering- considering we are exe's and we never really made up, but it's not. Laying with him is just so comfortable that I can't get over him, for that reason. Comfort can be enough- but sometimes it tangles you in a web.

Sorry for the novel of a comment I just left you. You're blog is great by the way!

My husband and I are very happy with comfortable. Like a favorite pair of worn pajamas. Yu can't get enough.
