Today I am a man

Inspired by Neilocha, (on whom I have a bloggy crush) (see how I awkwardly didn't dangle one single participle there?) (I think?) who challenged us to write as if we were the opposite gender (or is it sex?) (I can never remember).

My girlfriend just won't let up.

It was great in the beginning...the sex was awesome.

She got me, you know? As if I'd known her forever. FOREVER.

We spent all of our time together; I never saw my roomates because I was always at her place, and that was cool because we were busy filling each other in on the details of our lives we'd missed, you know?

Did I mention the sex was awesome?

But after a few months, I started to FREAK. She wants to be with me ALL OF THE TIME. Sure, it was cool in the beginning, but now...come on! It's time for us to get back to normal, our normal routines. I need my dude time, and her friends are getting on my nerves.

I'm thinking that what we might need is to slow things down a bit here. Stop being so girlfriendy-boyfriendy and cool off a bit.

Yeah, I totally love her. But she's stifling me. I need some time off. Sure, the sex is still great and I don't want that to stop, but I need my days back. Maybe we could just spend our days apart and hook up at night.

That sounds like a great plan. I'm going to run that by her tomorrow.


  1. Haha! I've dealt with this guy.

  2. Yea, I don't get it. I've dealt with plenty of women like this too.

  3. That's scary.

    True, scary!

  4. That is really frightening. Because I'm the one who is usually acting like the guy in this kind of situation. Might have something to do with growing up with a bunch of guys who told me that I could be anything that I wanted. Turns out I wanted to be a dog.

  5. ROFLing. Good one, crackah!

  6. No, you definitely earned the Tootsie DVD! Awesome.

    Glad to have found you too.

  7. That seems a bit talkative for a guy - don't you think it woulda been more like: "I'm over it. I wonder if the game's on?" :-)

  8. I tried to do this and gave up. You did good...

  9. I'm not even sure there's a whole thought process like this involved with men. I think they just sort of go with whatever seems like a good idea at the time

  10. Nicely done dude. I'm still waiting to hear about how your breast exam went. I'm hanging on over here praying for you too. It's gotta be good. I just know it.

    By the way, I haven't posted it yet, but they found a subchorionic hematoma by the baby and gave me a 50/50 chance of miscarrying. It just never gets easier does it?


Brilliant observations:
