TGFG: Addition to "The Boyfriend Dilemma"

 I was once told that I live my life like a cliche. 

Well, the thing with cliches and quotes, and age-old sayings are that oftentimes, if not all, they are true. 

Yes, I live my life as if it were a stupid silly little cliche. Yes, I too (although I say that I don't) have certain expectations from a relationship that I just assume things. 

That any and all men that are even remotely interested in me should "just know" what I expect from them and vise versa, especially with this one because we have been friends for so long, and so forth. 

But I guarantee you, they don't. 

Moses (that's his pen name) has no clue how I feel about him. Even though when we are together we do know because we both feel it. It's electric. 

Moses has no clue that not saying something silly and very cliche to me in a text such as "good morning" is what keeps me knowing that those feelings we have when we are together are still there while we are apart. 

No, he doesn't know...

and I am not going to tell him. 

I am not going to tell him because it isn't that important. 

It really isn't that important that I hear from the guy each morning with a "good morning" and each night with a "good night" because I trust the process. 

I trust his sincerity and I am not going to tell him because if I do, I am giving him certain expectations to live by when any and all of this should come naturally from the heart. 


It feels good to have full faith and trust in someone, including myself. 

I don't even think he reads these silly blogs. 

In fact, I am actually surprised they are being read! 

Ninety-eight on the last post. 

Thank you! 

This is a self-proclaimed message that regardless of anything, we don't need to feed ourselves with the idea of what it is supposed to be like in a relationship. 

If that's even what this is... 

That's not fair to either of us. 

Those intimate moments we share, have shared, will share, and those cozy moments of days that run into nights, and nights that run into days, and days that I leave and am asked to come back again, are ours. 

I have never experienced a love like this before. 





Cliche, right?

Or is it. 

Only time will tell. 


  1. Even if you don't say anything, you still have expectations. If you didn't have expectations, you wouldn't have hopes and dreams.

The boyfriend dilemma

 Why is it that when we imagine our perfect partner that when we finally meet them, it turns out that we are not the perfect partner for them - at all.  When do we know that delicate balance when it comes to matters of the heart and attracting the relationship that we desire?  I met my friend Moses almost a decade ago on one of those cheesy dating apps that was cool hip and fun at the time, but later discovered it was really just another way for men to get laid.  Moses is 5 years older than I am, fit and athletic, and likes to do the things that I like to do as far as physical activities. He is also incredibly sexy and very attractive. The downside about Moses is that he is seemingly a tortured soul, just like I am.  A free spirited black sheep that vies for attention because like most of us emotionally unavailable adults, was neglected as a child.   But that is the one thing that I love the most about him... Moses is wild spirit that can't be tamed.  Just. Like. Me.  Moses and I s

Jowl: noun plural noun: jowls The lower part of a person's (or animal's) cheek, especially when it is fleshy or drooping. I am going to talk a little bit about age. Yeah, I know. Not fun. Especially if you are in your early, mid, or late 40's. You may not even like this topic in your 30's because you know eventually... it's coming. When I was a kid, I noticed that each of my aunts had them. The old lunch lady had them, and my grandma had them. At the time, I didn't really consider much of it and thought that maybe it was because they were all angry Irish women or that maybe there was something in the water of our super small rural town that was also causing families to have an over abundance of children. When I started to notice a little bit of face drag as of recent, I thought that maybe it was because I am always on my cell phone looking down or typing away important papers for school (again -looking down) or maybe along with "global warming&

Life of Pi

It has been said that without failure, there is no growth. I can say that with all honesty there is some merit to that claim and there are moments from the past few months of my life that are completely unexplained; falling directly under the category of personal failure and growth. I have given the past three years of my life, the past three years of my time, money, energy, love, dedication, emotional support, failing health, and whatever else, to be thrown into a forced position to fit a mold that I tried desperately to escape since Jr. High and High School. Popularity. Unfortunately the career path that I had worked so diligently to pursue since 2011 had me as a "perpetually moving target swayed by the winds of polar politics" (Stowe 2019). In that, the power and influence were not judged by good work ethic and genuine action put forth to create improved results, but by "how well I played in the sand box with others" (Ellis 2019).
