We’re flirtin’ with disaster, y’all know what I mean
And the way we run our lives, it makes no sense to me
I don’t know about yourself or what you want to be, yeah
When we gamble with our time, we choose our destiny
Here’s a rundown on my current cast of characters from Ashley Madison. There are some more but let’s start with these guys because they are the most consistent about pinging me. I’m texting/emailing with the following:
Hank: You can read all about Hank here.
Skittish: He’s hot and intriguing me but he’s very nervous about being caught. He lives in my immediate neighborhood and we figured out we go to the same gym (he almost had a coronary). I had dismissed him when I couldn’t get a photo out of him. Finally I sent him mine, I got his (and he’s sexy) but he’s still nervous. Today he tells me that he’s headed to the gym. I ask him if he wants to meet. He agreed to a quick meeting in the parking lot, so I pop over and text him my location. He stops by, says hello, we chat a few minutes and then it begins pouring rain. I mean buckets. Apparently I passed after I sent him a really nice email (I can be nice on occasion to these guys) that says the following:
Listen – if you aren’t sure about any of this I completely understand. The odds of us being in the same neighborhood and connecting were exceedingly slim, so it’s a huge surprise to me. I SWEAR my lips are sealed. If you just want to chat, that’s fine. I was married for 25 years, so I understand when the spark is quashed and you start wondering what else is out there. I don’t want to be the cause of any drama. I have found that straying outside of a marriage is more a symptom of a bigger problem.
So that was it, except now….he’s texting like crazy. Oh yeah, one reason he’s nervous – he’s a cop. What is it with me and cops?
911: He’s a paramedic in a city about 4 hours from mine. Great body. Introduced me to a new messaging app, Kik. Has good banter and my guess is this is not his first time at the rodeo. He travels for his job quite a bit so he may be in my neck of the woods sometime soon.
Flyboy: He owns a manufacturing company of some type. Currently on a business trip in another country, also has good banter. Pretty cute pictures. We are to meet on Tuesday for lunch.
I’m getting to old for this shit. I have to create contacts for all these guys with their online handle, real name, emails and then add notes about what I like about them, description, etc. There are times when I’m dealing with three conversations at once. I have to remember what I told whom. Good grief!!
I am headed out of town this weekend to visit my son at college, so I’ll get a little break. The unfortunate thing about my trip is that my ex chose the same weekend to visit the kid. My ex called me about it and I told him I booked my trip back in July, so we would just have to share him. I also got the better hotel — his sucks. Ahhhh, the weekend is looking like a lot of fun already.
