It’s interesting that it took me this long to get where I don’t have any angst whatsoever. It was a long, long haul. It seems like this last time around when we were together for about two-months it was a trial run for me, and I probably didn’t think it was going to work anyway. I think that I just love having sex with her. I’m kinda neutral on relationships in general at this juncture anyway. They don’t seem to last. Maybe I’m in a weird age bracket. Who knows?
We can have sex two weeks from Friday or not. I’m not holding my breath or will I ask for it. I haven’t ever asked for it since my bday and she got pissed and left. She accused me of keeping her up. As I said in October, I’m permanently off that party bus.
I know her patterns with me anyway… She contacts me when she misses me, wants to have sex, or feels like she needs to connect to me. The way in which she does the latter isn’t the way anyone connects with me. She’ll call with book titles or parenting tips. I guess it’s an intro into a conversation, but it doesn’t facilitate one for me and frankly, isn’t the way that anyone talks to me. I think that she is used to being the guru and the smarter one when it comes to her friends, so she gives advice or tips. She should blog 🙂
Next spring, I’ll date again. Right now, I can do sex with my ex or not. I don’t have to reach out and don’t care if she does or not. I have only known her 14-months and that’s no longevity for person like me that has had some friends for nearly thirty-years. Additionally, I know that I will never be close with her. That’s unfair to my next girlfriend, and is a very weird boundary for me.
I’m grateful to not be in the land of craving her, or wondering when she’ll contact me, or hoping that we will be together again. If we are meant to get together next year, we will, but I know that we’d need counseling. I wish her well this weekend at the big party she’s hosting. I’m glad to chill at home and get some stuff done. Most of all, I’m glad to not need to detox or deal with my likely former addiction to her.
There are words, honest, bare, introspective. The light the way for many of us to feel liberated or not alone. Thank you for such words from your life.
Wow! That is one of the most touching and sincere comments that I have ever gotten. Thank you, and know that I appreciate your reading my entries as well.
