I don't particularly like saying this, but two weeks ago I had sex for the first time. It was wonderfully relaxed, safe, and with someone I care about. The thing is, I have been highly emotional about it ever since and feeling very confused. A few hours afterwards (when I was alone) I felt this surge of emotion that I can't quite explain, other than it wasn't saddness or regret -- even though I did in fact cry. It just felt like something needed to be let out. I worry because I very much like him, enjoyed the time we spent together, and continue to see him regularly. He knows how I feel, communication has been very important for both of us, but (1) I can never explain how I feel completely because I don't know even know what it is and (2) I'm afraid if I keep being so emotionally preoccupied it may potentially interefere with what we have going. Even now, this doesn't even seem to make any sense to me. If anyone has any advice or opinion I would be so grateful. Thank you. I realize this might not be the appropriate board for this topic but sex is the core factor and I was hoping to gain insight from that aspect just as much as the emotional/relationship perspective.
