Another Pop-Up Man

Yet another man has popped-up.  I told you they come back in groups.  This time he’s not an annoying one though.  He’s a really nice guy going through a difficult time.  My heart goes out to those who are struggling in life and need a friend.  This one definitely is in need of a friend and he’s OK with just being friends with me.  I’m OK with that too.

I first met him in early 2010 when I was at work.  He was a frequent customer and a flirt.  One day he asked for my phone number and I gave it to him.  For some reason he kept losing my number and we kept missing each other and we just never got to go out until last August.  We went for lunch one day and then went to the beach for a few days.  I had a great time with him even though we never had sex.  He was one of those guys that just wanted to talk and didn’t want to be alone at the time.

Shortly after we got back from the beach I tried calling him but never could reach him.  Then my little DWI incident happened and then all the Manwhore shit happened and that completely threw me off mentally for the next several months.

Now I’m back to normal, or better than normal as I like to see it, and I could really use a good friend like him.  One that has no expectations of sex or emotional ties.  Maybe I’ll meet him for lunch this week.  I need someone to give me their opinion on my newly styled/colored coif anyway.

  1. Don’t know how often it happens but yes, it is possible for a man and woman to just be friends without sex. Just ask my wife. 😉 (Sorry – you lose karma points in heaven if you pass up a straight line.)

    Seriously though, I have many female friends that I see regularly. My wife knows about them all and has no problem with it. Guess it’s just part of trusting each other and being secure in our relationship.

    My brother has to take the cake for that though. He introduced his fiance to the woman who would become the maid of honour at their wedding. He and she were platonic friends to the point that even after he got engaged, he still went camping with the future maid-of honour friend even when his new fiance had to work and couldn’t come with them.

    Strange but true. Do whatever works for you and as long as everyone consents, nobody gets hurt and you have fun, what more can you ask?

    Thanks PD.

  2. Thank you both. There’s nothing I like more than a NSA hassle-free friendship. And Quidmont, thanks for the laugh. I’m sure your wife won’t mind you taking advantage of the straight line opportunity. You remind me of a former boss that I had four years ago. He was undoubtedly the smartest, wittiest and funniest man I’ve ever met. He was also became a great married male friend of mine that was able to flirt with me but in a joking way that made it a joy to work with him. He even met my then fiance/future 2nd ex-husband and they got along great. The best advice he ever gave me that I didn’t follow was that I shouldn’t marry my fiance at the time. LOL I’ve learned a lot about listening and following good advice since then.

    My keyboard is going out on me. 😦 I’ll have to write more tomorrow after I go pick up a new one.

    Thanks again for your support!

    • Wow! Now I’m going to have to find a bigger hat. I’m gettin a swelled head from “… smartest, wittiest and funniest man I’ve ever met.” Even to be included by association makes me blush. 🙂

      Thanks PD!

      Can’t wait for you to get a new keyboard. I understand. I’m using one that works great. But it’s almost got the letters worn off of many of the keys. Certainly gets good use.

      Please keep posting the great stuff you do.
