.I had one weird ass day, yesterday. It started out with a few phone calls to Marrying Kind and 28, and then out of boredom I sent out a “how’s your day going?” text to a few of my leading men. What happened next was not what I had expected.
Dull Boy answered first. His day wasn’t going well at all. He even used a frowny emoticon, and I have never in almost 3 months seen him use a single emoticon. I texted back asking if he was ok, and he replied telling me not to worry. Cuz…you know…nothing makes a person not worry like someone telling them, “Don’t worry.” I messaged back but didn’t hear another thing out of him. So, yeah, I am actually worried about Dull Boy.
Gig was next. This was very SURPRISING. I hadn’t talked to Gig in almost 2 weeks. We usually spend time on the phone on the weekends, but this last weekend I had so many dates that I just didn’t get a chance to sit with him for hours shooting the breeze. I kinda missed that too. But, we hadn’t been texting since our little cool-off/break-up (or whatever the hell it is…search me). He texted me telling me how there had been an accident that day and that a driver had been killed. Scared the hell out of me! I thought he’d been with them since sometimes he has another guy with him. He wasn’t thankfully, and he said much the same thing as Dully Boy about not worrying with much the same result! Thanks, boys. Yeah, thing is I like you enough not to want bad things to happen to you. Silly me. I guess my “competition” wasn’t around for Gig to talk to and he knew I’d care. Yeah, silly, silly me.
Supplier replied, but he’s been busy. He’s been macking too. lol We’re in the same place I guess. 🙂 Who knows?
The oddest text of all? JOE. Joe’s name is under Gig’s in my cell and I guess I accidentally hit his name too (probably a Freudian thing). This started a series of “I want to see you” and “I’m off this week” texts. Puuuhhhlease. I know him. There’s only two reasons for him to talk to me either he’s running out of ho’s or he’s missing what we had. I told him I was seeing several other people and he started this “no strings” thing. It’s probably a one day thing. Joe tends to take a fancy to an idea and then leave it alone.
Stalker wasn’t texted but he called last night to talk for a few minutes. He’s been working a double shift which as anyone knows can slow down even the most eager of stalkers. lol He’s wanting a date for Friday, and he might get it.
Now to the elimination round…
Private Dancer pulled some crap on IM last night and this morning we had a little standoff. He was out of sorts last night and refused to talk about it but it was obvious that something was going on. He got testy and left. I asked him if I had done something wrong this morning because I’m…what’s that word…NICE. He got all up in arms and said I was crowding him (funny…you seemed pretty interested in that red lace bra I was wearing…what? gotta give the boys something to fight for!). I told him not to worry that I didn’t need this crap. He started laughing about me wanting to leave at the first ill word. And, I just told him that it wasn’t that. I don’t need somebody who wants to blow hot and cold and puts his own stuff off on me. That was that! Ask me how relieved I am!!! Woohoo!!! I got out and I didn’t even have to break anyone’s heart since he started it. Best of all, it means that Major Cox has a clear path to my heart. 🙂 I can even go to the Welcome Home Ceremony if I want! It’s great. Today, Major Cox is online IM’ing me and pretending he is here putting up the Christmas tree with me. How sweet is he? I mean to tell ya. If he’s half this good when he does get home, I may be truly smitten.
Second in the elimination round was Marrying Kind. He had also been acting oddly since Tuesday night questioning me on all sorts of things. We were on the phone several times yesterday talking about things, just life in general. He brought up Eveready by location and then the conversation came around to Gig. He insisted that Gig’s texts indicated his desire to have me in his life more (not even close buddy…I know Gig). Prior to this, Marrying had been very loose about my other relationships insisting on being allowed into every facet of my life, and I had obliged to some extent. He knew the major hurdle with Eveready and had been confident in having children himself but suddenly he was all “what if we don’t?”. I shrugged it off. We were talking about going to his office Christmas party this Friday. Then he said something kind of off about liking his friends. Finally, I told him to get to the heart of the matter and when he hemmed and hawed, I spelled it out for him. I had made no bones about not liking his so-called friends. These include “swingers” who don’t so much swing as cheat on each other and call it swinging, women who let him buy them and their kids expensive cellphones on his phone plan, and just general users. Trash, pure trash, I’m tellin’ ya. And, that’s precisely what I told him. Then I told him that this wasn’t going to work out because I’d never be ok with being around those types of people. He said, “I still want to know you and talk to you.” I cut him short with, “Didn’t you tell me that I needed to make a clean break from the other guys? What’s the point in postponing the inevitable?” So, no more of the Marrying Kind.
Whew! After a day like that, I was a bit confused to say the least! Kind of despondent, I went over to an astrology site where a paragraph was talking about the Virgo Moon. Apparently, the Virgo Moon was supposed to be great for “cleaning house” and uncomplicating your life. Well, that explains it! It’s supposed to continue for today I think. So, I need to stay away from anyone I want to keep! lol
As for a question that several of you have asked, how do I keep them all straight? It’s not hard. I actually remember their names, first and last, and the details of their life. Now, I don’t memorize their phone numbers unless I call them a lot, but I even remember their children’s and pet’s names usually. They aren’t numbers to me. They really are people that I’m interested in and want to know. I don’t lie to them or try to hide anything about myself. So, I don’t have to worry about telling someone something I shouldn’t.
Am I going all ga-ga over the guys because of my weight loss? The answer to that one is, “Maybe.” I can’t say for sure since this is a new experience for me, but I doubt it. I dated a good bit when I was 500lbs. Seriously, I did and that is not exactly the norm and it REALLY wasn’t the norm all those years ago (it’s been 6 yrs since I actively dated…. I think I have a wider appeal now at my MUCH smaller size, and I have a policy of never turning someone down for shallow reasons such as looks (one of the above men looks for all the world like Smeagol in Lord of the Rings). However, I am considering hanging a sign that says, “You must be this tall for the Honeywine ride!” Anytime someone is more than an inch shorter than me, the kissing becomes awkward. 😦
There is always something about a man that sets him apart. I like men. I’ve always been terribly fond of them and I’m not just speaking sexually. Men are so much easier to figure out. Their actions usually do all they’re talking, and it’s only when I try to understand their emotional side that I get confused and caught up. Unlike some people, I really don’t believe in that stereotype of the unfeeling male. A lot of times, I think they just aren’t sure what they are feeling and when they do, they have learned not to say anything because of the reactions they have gotten in the past. Men are great on so many levels and I’m a genuine fan. And that’s without the sex which I consider a category unto itself. Not that I’ve been up to that lately! lol
Any other questions? 🙂 Honeywine is an open book. Maybe too open! lol
