I(48) am 2yrs divorced (18yr marriage - married the wrong girl - bluegill life - took 3yrs to work from D1 through to D10 before pulling the trigger) and in a LTR(32). She’s probably more RP than most people posting here. No relationship issues beyond occasional comfort tests.
That being said, I vetted this girl strongly and don’t see her negatively negatively impacting my plan at all. Either way, the go plan is same as the stay plan.
So for me, I’ve lived the BP life, I understand and apply RP principles, vetted a First Mate and using RP tools and I know I’m the prize and her behavior is appropriate. I’ve never had a problem getting sex. I happily divorced my Ex even though we were having sex daily and regular threesomes with younger single unicorns.
So, what’s a healthy Dread layer to walk around with when the relationship works and the good behaviors are there and bad behaviors are manageable? For me, I’m thinking it’s around D2 or D3.
What say you?
