The Reapparance & Disappeance of RacketballGuy

Yup.  You read that correct.  After nearly five years of no contact, RacketballGuy suddenly reappeared last August a few days before my birthday.  The company he works for in Chicago sent him to London on an extended work assignment and he called me a few days after arriving. I was in such shock and at first I thought it was some sort of prank but it turned out to be real.    And in that I didn’t have a boyfriend — I had just started going on dates again — I agreed to meet up for drinks, maybe dinner.  As there […]

From Breadcrumbs to Toast

I have not heard from Basherter since I laid into him in March. Perhaps he finally understands my position — when I’m done, I done. I had told this to him before we stopped speaking, but I suppose he never thought it would apply to him. After all, while unsaid for much of our friendship, I was madly in love with him. But no more. I knocked that out of my system like a bad cold. Besides getting rid of Basherter, as bonus, I’ve also gotten rid of his friend who continually phoned me to chitchat. This guy wasn’t much […]

Breadcrumbs

This past Wednesday was the 21st anniversary of my mother’s death. I know people say that it gets easier as the years go on, but for me it hasn’t– perhaps because our family unit hasn’t really recovered.

I just didn’t know how to be supportive without continually having to rescue her every time she got herself into a difficult situation. […]

Come a Little Closer

For the last few months I can’t get Rihanna’s song Stay (feat. Mikky Ekko) out of head. Strangely, I’m not thinking about a particular guy when I hear this song. It’s more to do with the general desire to be in a committed relationship. I know this is natural, but I’d really like to be content with myself. Most days I am, but some days like today, I’m not as I’m starting to find it exhausting to go through life alone. Sure one can be self-sufficient, but it would be good to have someone around who provides unconditional love and […]

Singledom

Yet another Valentine’s Day finds me single and I’m really starting to question my decision to remain in London. The weather is less than glorious, it’s rather expensive so I can’t afford to live in my desired area Notting Hill and I’m eternally single. Granted I’m not the social butterfly I should be, but even when I’m out and about, I still don’t get approached. As for finding love online, well I probably should revisit, but previous attempts didn’t bring forth any decent suitors and so not excited about trying again. It’s all rather frustrating and I’m seriously questioning whether […]
