Not many of you know this but I started this blog when I was in Law School in 2005.
I fully intended to walk the straight and narrow and document how I WAS FINALLY GETTING THINGS RIGHT IN MY LIFE.
Of course, it turned into something else.
It just goes to show, you can’t pretend to be something you’re not and keep up the pretense for any length of time.
Eventually the real you shines through.
I thought I could make myself into someone classy, poised, and perfect. Instead I discovered I’m earthy, funny, and full of flaws.
I think the time has come for this blog to evolve AGAIN.
Into something with a little more soul and a little less frivolity.
I’ve been commiserating with a friend about our mutual single statuses.
We both have discovered recently that we have certain “problems.”
He is addicted to being in relationships.
I am addicted to the rush of a new sexual relationship.
It makes for very interesting conversations between us – the romantic and the cynic.
One of us fantasizes about snuggling and smelling his lover’s hair.
The other one of us fantasizes about getting down and dirty.
It’s a very interesting conundrum.
He could use a little dose of my cynicism and I could use a little dose of his romanticism.
If you merged us into one human being, we’d make the perfect partner.
The irony is, this friend hasn’t been a close part of my life for at least a decade.
But now we find ourselves thrown together by chance and circumstance.
And I think perhaps his perspective is the one I need the most right now.
Which reminds me that the universe is unfolding EXACTLY as it should.
And I am EXACTLY where I need to be.
With EXACTLY who I need to be with.
