Yeh, Not that I’m against gettin’ frisky. I guess I was just feeling cynical. But sometimes it’s exciting to go on a few dates, actually get to know a person before you see them naked. Plus if you just get right down to it, its mostly physical and less emotional… emotion makes the physical part better (for me, anyway). I’ve experienced both, and I’ve experienced emotion borne from a physical relationship. It’s late… am I making any sense?
The last serious relationship I was in was a six year stint that started in high school. That might explain something.
“I live on my own, in a new city with a new set of flowing strangers. Now I see the real world as plain and dry as white paper. No passion or romance. No love and vibrant color. Just dust and people in cars and costumes.”—my journal, 7.23.10
