I had an up and down weekend man. On one hand it was nice to just relax and do things at my own leisure, as opposed to planning for two. But on the other hand, I had to resist the temptation of calling my friend(or anyone else for that matter), and that was a bit difficult. I ended up having a brief text message conversation with her, but that's about it. I must admit I was pretty proud of myself, but it was only one weekend. We shall see what happens.

A female friend and I talked on Friday night, and she told me she was flirting with the idea of taking on a same sex partner. That spawned an interesting conversation on what we expect of a mate when we are in the screening process. She mentioned that while she was in the process of figuring out what she wanted in a woman, in the past she may have placed unrealistic expectations on men. I KNOW I am guilty of this..I can't even begin to recall how many times I expect a woman to be outgoing, when I know I'm not. Or expect her to be affectionate, when I know that's not really my style. I guess the trick is to figure out the balance between someone complimenting you, and expecting someone to compensate for what you don't have. That's a very fine line. But anyway, back to the same sex thing. It is fascinating to me how many women have had lesbian experiences. Personally, I'm all for it, but I've never looked at my boys like that. Not even close.

Other weekend highlights:

-I had lunch with an ex co-worker of mine on Saturday. It is easy to forget how nice it is to have a simple outing with the opposite sex without expectations. I had a damn good time.

-Watching football, and getting lit up off of margaritas with boy Kevin. I mean yeah my beloved Philadelphia Eagles lost, but I barely noticed because we were talking trash. After all these years, nothing really changes. We drink, watch sports, crack jokes and then go home. It sounds simple, but sometimes I forget just how much fun that can be.

-I played basketball for the first time in about two months, and I had a woman guarding me. Very interesting. At first, I was being too delicate with her, and then she started scoring on me. It was obvious that she had played collegiately, because she was quick and had a good shot. I eventually got the upper hand, but she made me work for it. I also was able to "accidentally" rub on her ass, and gently "graze" her chest. Of course this was all in the heat of the battle, but still..I got a workout and a cheap thrill at the same time. Good times.

Still a pervert after all these years . . . did you manage to keep from falling out while playing B-ball . . . if so, then you really are in pretty good shape. As far as the margaritas . . . that sounded like fun . . .wish I coulda been there. I sure could use a nice tight margarita! As for your weekend, congrats on finishing it out unscathed. Maestro, you are my hero! And the same sex thing, it is definitely interesting how we tend to over-stipulate when looking for a partner. We definitely need to learn how to take a good look at ourselves FIRST.

I miss being in LOVE and that's the main thing I miss about my last boyfriend. He wasn't all that now that I use my 20/20 hindsight, but I LUVED that man. I mean he did put it down in the bedroom, but I digress...Enjoy your trudge through lonelyville with your head held high because when you're the one for you it will all fall into place!!!
