Relationships blowing up and developing and straining and fading. Complicated feelings. Long talks in dark cars with JH. Crawling up to AYl and kissing sideways as he lies down. His smiling eyes. “You’re distracting me,” cuddling on the couch. Saturn and Hercules. Mosquito bites. Borges. Packing and moving and screaming and crying. Phone calls and […]

When EMC and WB and I collide

Oh, goodness. I guess, if you’ve been following my influential relationships for the past few years, you would be well acquainted with the roller coaster that is EMC, and the rocky road that is WB. EMC dropped a huge text bomb on me, just as I had come to terms with the relationship. She acknowledged the troubles […]

“The Talk” with AYl

I went over to his house to watch a movie last night, and I refused to make out. My little way of testing whether he was just down for the hookup. After the movie, we kissed for a minute or two, before I wound up the guts and cut us short and asked, “Hey…what are […]

An Update on the Relationships that Currently Matter to Me

AYl – Doubts

Well, I just slept over at AYl’s place again. Planned, this time. We went further than before. Each time, we go a bit further, so I’ve never felt uncomfortable, even though we’re probably moving faster than we should. Especially including the fact that two weeks ago, I’d never kissed a guy at all. A few […]

AYl Movie date

It’s just a date I want to remember. Cuddling in the back of his car among the blankets. Laughing over how very little of the movie we were watching. His arms encircling me as we star-gazed through the moonroof. Complete comfort. Him brushing back my hair as it fell back on him. Him teasing me by holding […]
