That's possibly becqause kissing isn't necessarily a sexual action.It can also be a simple expression of affection. Besides that, kissing doesn't have to lead to sex - I kissed a good five years before I ever had sex.
As for paternity tests, I agree that they're not a nice indicator of the world we live in but not for the same reason.

Right now, my daughters are only 8 yo and I drop them off and collect them wherever they may be going. It's actually easier for me than for most because we live way out in the sticks so I pretty well HAVE to do this (saves a lot of grief with the "nobody else's mum does that...".View Thread
I agree. Dance clubs may be marvellous in a perfect world but what is the supervision like? I suppose it all boils down to not what your children are attending but how much the people in charge are aware of their responsability.View Thread
Could I please ask you to use paragraphs to break up your text and some punctuation too? Please? I find it very difficult to read your posts because they're all in a single block. I'd love to read them right through but because it's hard (without paragraphs) to do so I find myself giving up after a couple of lines. I doubt I'm alone in this. Please For the comfort of your readers. I only ask because I WANT to read your posts...Please take this as a request and not as criticism.View Thread
