Dangerous

I’m in new territory. I’m not on my A game and I am flailing a little. It’s more than a little embarrassing. My i’s are not dotted. My t’s are not crossed.

I have been spelled into submission and I am flagrantly risking my hard-won freedom whilst I tie myself into aprons and slip into heels with the raw anticipation of seeing him for the first time in 8 years. I am woefully predictable when it comes to certain vices and he’s a walking list.

In a tie even, be still my heart.

He’s driving to work and voice texting me from his car. Apologizing for his grammar and punctuation. I’m so turned on that I feel flushed. This is the guy who created my penchant for smart men. Not just smart though… smarter than me. Eeeeek.

I text Miss Fancy the same screenshot.

J- I’m in danger. Humongous danger.

She agrees.

F- You’re in trouble.

He sends me his playlist and I love what he listens to. He wears a tie every day, y’all. Every DAY. He doesn’t love it, but I can work with that. I am nothing if not inspirational when inspired.

I’ve ghosted a few dozen men and deleted my Tinder account.

The poor pilot. He will not stop texting me. I’ve been sending him a few here and there because I can empathize with how much worse the silence is than disinterest, but I think maybe it might be easier if I just full Casper.

There is one factor…

He’s celibate. He took a year off and when my eyebrows bounced to my hairline, he laughed and quickly invited me to have sex with other people. Again. Instant shocked eyebrow face lift.

D- Is that a deal breaker?  I understand if it is. I’ve been in an open relationship for years and don’t have any problem with you having sex, but I’m not right now.

Chaste dates with a man that embodies nearly every last vice and craving, I possess?

What am I getting myself into?

  1. Hi J,
    He wears a tie. In Idaho a man wit a tie is introduced this:
    “Your Honor, this is the Defendant”.
    “Sorry, your Honor?’
    “Ha, of course you’re right, brown doesn’t suit him, tie or suit, and definitely not both.”
    “I forgot to mention that C. Oward Lee prefers to be known as Wolverine. He saw that Logan died and he’d like the job if he can get it.
    “An anachronistic choice, he says. Maybe he just meant ironic..”

    Anyway, good luck with vaguely-defined Tie Guy! Hope I didn’t put you off .. 🙂

    1. He’s a criminal defense attorney, so your comment made me laugh. Awww… me and my collection of broken toys. Some things are eternal. 🤷🏼‍♀️

      1. His wit will be my downfall. I appreciate your help, as always. I may have actually chosen wisely this time. We’ll see.

      2. Choosing wisely is impossibly difficult I fear—too many variables and misrepresentations. Let’s just hope you chose luckily, and win happiness, and set the bar there. That’s sufficient, right?

        Missed your blogging…

      3. I’m awfully happy being single. I love the life I’ve made and I’m not terribly inclined to change anything unless it’s spectacular. I think that’s the ultimate curse of being single for a long while.
