While I’m awake and working, the rest of the world is asleep– then I sleep away all the daylight hours. He still hates it down in the city and misses our little town. Both my kids stayed home sick, my babysitter bailed, and then it started snowing. When he did make it in to town the next week and stopped by we had a terrific visit. There were tons of lingering hugs, and he fixed the stereo he gave me so long ago. We had a pretty romantic night together, but minus the hanky panky.. Then he found me on facebook and we started talking again and haven’t stopped since.When I do wake up to get ready for work, I usually message with the Duke a bit… We are both in lonely places and wishing we were closer, but a myriad of circumstances prevents that. I don’t know what I’d do if I didn’t have that fuzzy little love bug following me around to snuggle with me every second I’m home. I miss having strong arms around me and the strength in his personality. I miss companionship, talking for hours on end, and sex… I figured out today that I have gone for more than a year in my state of voluntary celibacy. If I’m so in need of the company of a man and all that, there are places I could go and people I could see…. Where I live, when it snows, there is crash after crash, there are chains required, and freeways closed. I was lying around on the couch with a raging headache but I was glad to see him none the less. We made loose plans for the next visit, and he started talking about a wedding he is going to and the subsequent vacation days he’ll be taking. Still one of the absolutely most memorable nights of my life. We were good friends back then and now fit back in to each other lives so naturally. We respect and care about each other and have managed to share all sorts of secrets honestly and without judgement.
We poured out our hearts and our tears and all our frustrations with daily life, as well as trying to balance our careers, and relationships. Strong and passionate, romantic and protective and he’s crazy about me.
So, all this would be very exciting except that The Duke is married.
Just moving forward and doing my best to stay positive.
