It's not the men in my life that count , it's the life in my men. --Mae West
Gosh I love Mae West's sense of humor. But I digress. I have been thinking it would be good for my readers to get familiar with the following characters (ie, men) in my life, as they will undoubtedly (hopefully?) pop up in my stories sooner or later...
In no particular order...
The Cop is my most recent ex. I have to say he really does it for me--I think he's quite yummy: tall, incredible kisser, muscular, wears a spiffy uniform to work, could rescue me if necessary...(insert girly sigh here). We were swimming along merrily until his roommates threw a party. The Cop had to work and forbid--yes, I said forbid--me to go without him. Even though I considered his roommates to be friends of mine and I was bringing my own friends anyway. He was screaming at me (this was a new and very very ugly side to him which I had never really seen before). I told him that this had to end if he thought he could use that tone of voice and tell me what to do. Yelling is an instant deal-breaker for me. We have talked a few times since then. We even went out to lunch. Although, I have to admit it was mostly my doing. Because I had ulterior motives....(use your imagination). Those motives blew up in my face when he shot me down. Cold. Let's just say I'm not his biggest fan.
MIA is one of The Cop's former roommates. I had always thought he was a great guy, but I had never really hung out with him all that much. I ran into him one weekend at a bar. He was not with The Cop and he was pretty buzzed, which ended up being a great thing because he made a big confession to me: he had a thing for me. (Maybe this was why The Cop didn't want me going to the party?) He went on and on (*blush*) and wanted to know what I thought about us dating since I was no longer with The Cop. I said sure and gave him my number, thinking Cool. I'm kind of excited about this. He told me he wanted to hang out very soon. As in that very night. I said, "Uhhh...what's the hurry?" He kept asking and I kept blowing the idea off. I figured he was just drunk or horny or lonely. I figured that when he sobered up in the morning, he would behave normally and call me for a normal date. Um, so far that has not happened. He only drunk text-messages me. The most recent one? "happy tivgping" --ha ha! I'm kind of fed up with the endless texting that never goes anywhere. It's a letdown because I can actually see things happening between us.
Hook Up Guy makes my "Hottest Men I've Ever Laid Eyes On" list, which, including him, only lists 3 people. I met him one night out at the bars when he spilled his drink on my foot. I think he might have been on purpose, come to think of it. We have so much chemistry you could heat your house with it. It was, as I like to say, "On like Donkey Kong". But I had to leave, and so I gave him my number. He called a couple nights later wanting to know if I could come over and spend the night. Exsqueeze me? It turns out that HUG doesn't date. Yup, he only "hooks up." He is just that honest. I on the other hand, do not hook up--I only date. So we were at a crossroads, and I took a timeout. He's HOT but he's emotionally unavailable....dang!!! After that, I ran into him every time I went out for months afterwards. It was very strange and only made me lust after him even more. He always said his offer still stands. Then I didn't see him for a while and figured he moved. But a couple weeks ago, guess who joined my gym?! I told him I would give him a call....but haven't decided what to do yet.
The One That Got Away...oh man, doesn't everyone have one of these? We're friends...we crossed the line and it was a mistake.....and went back to being friends. Another person I have amazing chemistry with. I have the most shameless school girl crush on this guy. But I don't think it will ever happen. I guess I just don't do it for him. Ok, that's all I'm saying about him because I think he reads this blog...but I'm sure he knows all of this anyway.
OK, you should be all caught up now. If anyone has any advice/explanation for their behavior, please let me in on it!
