In the arms of another . . .

Ha! right! I must be out of my ever-loving mind!

I have a good friend to whom I speak every few days . . . and see every few days . . . and generally tease about his lack of a girlfriend after all these years.

Boy is seriously hot . . . like scalding hot. Rippled chest, taut ass, nice hair, pretty eyes . . . THE WHOLE NINE FRIGGIN YARDS! Oh and baby boy can dance! he is my dance partner whenever we are out . . . yumkins.

But the ladies, they don't line up. He is convinced it is because the ladies go for the jerks and he is not one. He treats his women fine and they treat him . . . well like the piece of meat he is *wink, wink*

Anyway, we were discussing over a beer the other day, his lack of a steady mate and the current state of mine.

So, cause he is seriously hot ladies!, I asked him, "are you picky or are you looking for something unattainable? cause the women folk should be lining up!"

He didn't think so, so we talked about his past relationships and lo, there was something wrong with the ladies in each of them. Of course, as we can't all be perfect ;)

Now, this particular hot piece of man-meat and I flirt endlessly, but we are just friends, NOTHING MORE. Hell, he flirts with the granny on the corner. He's hopeless - but he is cute and fun so there's that! Oh . . . and you can bounce a quarter off his ass - or crack walnuts with it . . . trust me . . . truuuuust meeee!

I don't fancy myself anything particularly wonderful, but I'm not butt-ugly. I've got a few extra pounds around the middle, but I'm working on that. I've got a good head on my shoulders and nice hair, exotic color and eyes . . . hell, the girls work overtime . . . so, basically, what I'm saying is although I'm not all that and a bag a chips . . . I'm also not a bag over her face girl either!

So I asked, young and hunky . . . "If I were single, would you be interested?" His response? A flat out no. No thought required. Just no. I didn't ask for him to elaborate because, truth be told, I'm crushed. I've no reason to be crushed, as I'm not interested either . . . but a girl has little more than her vanity somedays.

Shit, he was there when the boys were pouring beads over my head cause the girls were out there and proud of it. . . I'm not without my attributes . . . and the secret ones - even better! (not that he . . . or any of you . . . would know! *snicker*)

So, I'm crushed. Talk about a blow to the ego. I think I'll go over here and sit in the corner with a tub of ice cream. Course that won't stop me from taking the piss out of him about the fact that yet another woman has dumped him . . . I'm beginning to wonder if he isn't all that between the sheets . . . ahem . . .

Too bad too, cause I am . . . ahem . . . HA! Oh yes . . . I am . . .poor boy . . . will never know the asian invasion. poor, poor boy . . . *snicker*

How old is he?

There have been a fair number of guys that were all that and a bag chips (i.e., your male equivalent) that I enjoyed as friends only, but would not have considered anything more.

Not that they were not attractive, not that they were not damned sexy, and not that I was not attracted to them, but because their friendship was more important to me than any other kind of relationship.

There's nothing wrong with that.


It is often not a case of the right person, but being at the right place (in our heads and our hearts) that really matters.

Probably sees you as a friend and can't see you any other way; been there, done that! You've been pigeonholed by the hottie and there's nothing short of dynamite that can blow that image out of his brain!

he is just a friend - and I am not interested . . . but I'm not dead either. . . . I was simply looking for a stroke to the ego . . . alas . . . he isn't that bright. No wonder he's single *snicker*

Been there, done that, burned the tshirt. My problem was that I'd develop a very close friendship with women, only to have the friendship become a self-imposed barrier to moving forward with any further relationship. Took me a long time to overcome that and realize that intimacy doesn't always have to alter a friendship for the worse. Sounds like he has the same issues.

And as a blogfriend, kinda concerned about you with the tone of your last few posts. Hope things are okay in your direction.

Seriously ya'll, this wasn't a cry for intimacy with anyone . . . simply an ego stroke! I am not interested in him . . . not that way! Ack! Besides, I'm hitched.

We all need that ego boost/validation from time to time. I hear ya.

Oh, for pity's sake. If I were a guy, I'd chase you to the ends of the earth. You are all that and a bag of chips, and don't you forget it.

(Unfortunately, I like men. But that doesn't mean a girlfriend can't respect the hotness. And you've got it.)

OD! I totally love you. That, that is what I call validation ;)

I like to think that I was once a hottie, now I'm barely warm. Even so, if anything ever happened to Linda Lou I would be trying hard to convince you that an affair with an older man would be wonderful for your social development.

Since Linda Lou will probably outlive me, you'll die without ever knowing what you missed, you poor thing.

He's GHEY!!! I would smack up on your.....well, you know what I mean.

Posted by: Paul Mitchell at August 4, 2009 02:07 AM

Um- he said NO because there is nothing wrong with you.

Apparently, he likes women with problems. Maybe he feels he can fix them? Or he chooses women with problems so the relationship is doomed to begin with and there is no long-term to worry about.

Trust me sweetie- you are gorgeous and smart and funny and intelligent and I could go on forever.

Posted by: Rave at August 4, 2009 10:18 AM can never figure them out. Just appreciate the eye-candy...and tell him he couldn't have handled you anyway, so it's a good thing to stay just friends.

I love Peter. He cracks me up.

I think it's normal to want to still be attracted to the opposite sex, even if you're married. I just had this conversation with my Tech Lead, who is also like a brother to me... for the last 20 years. He's 2 years my senior. We were talking and I said to him that as much as I pride myself on being pretty easy going about my looks, how I'm not totally vain, I would on some level be destroyed if I thought the opposite sex didn't find me attractive... not the whole group, but some of them. Does that make sense?

Honey I think you're all that and then some... ;)

There is the Way of the Beefcake... and the Way of the Gentleman.

Mr. Debonair would never have slapped your ego down like that, no, never. He would have told you how wonderful you were... that you were undeniably attractive... but that he just wasn't ready to allow his emotions to run away with him, given your pre-existing relationship and all.
