The Man of My Dreams
When I first met my husband Peter, I was it was love at first sight. We met at subway while heading home in the evening after work. He was too heading home and he was the one who approached me. We met several times later and I was sure that I loved him. He was kind, charming and with lovely eyes. Everything about him made me smile.
I loved his way of approaching issues and the way he talked or explained events or issues. We would chat or video call late in the night and everything was perfect. He promised to marry me when time was right, though I didn’t see the reason for the wait. He loved me and I loved him and that was all that mattered.
But this didn’t last long. Six months into dating, he broke some news which shocked me. He revealed to me that he was a nudist which stemmed from his family. I couldn’t understand any of this because it was so heart-breaking. Let’s face it, this is a man who I loved with all my heart and was hoping to have a family with and here he was telling me that he was a nudist; a life that I would never consider or give a thought. What was he expecting me to do?
I think he had anticipated my reaction, because after the news, I tried cutting him off my life but he still insisted on seeing me so that we would talk about the issue. However must I felt that I detested his lifestyle, I couldn’t get him out of my mind. He was the person that I loved and wanted to be with the rest of my life.
Subdued by my love for him, but feeling so stressed and disappointed at what people would think about me (especially my parents who were staunch Christians) I decided to seek counseling. I went to a marriage counsellor for help but she insisted that it would be better if I came in the company of my fiancé.
I didn’t like the idea but I had no better choices. I called Peter and talked to him about the issue. As supportive and soft as he was, he told me that he was willing to come along.
The counselor was quick to help me and after a long talk, I was surprised to realize that I had a completely false idea about nudism. I realized that nudism was a lifestyle which didn’t much advocate for sex and immorality as I thought. Peter was quick to help me through this and promised to help me try nonsexual nudism if I felt like though it would be my own decision.
Today I’m glad that I realized that. We got married despite the objections of my parents and today I’m a nudist mother of two beautiful girls. Occasionally, we attended nudist parties and beaches and I’m really proud about it. This is a decision that I can never regret.
