Sad to say this, but apparently the man I used to call the “love of my life” has now joined the ranks of the biggest losers. He stood me up this weekend in a rather cruel way. Makes me wonder if he felt some sort of need to get revenge for something I have done. Only I can’t imagine what? The only thing I seem to have failed at with him was not giving him enough attention the past several months. Perhaps due to his narcissism this made him angry. I really can’t say.
We hadn’t been talking much lately. Now and again I’d get a random text from him saying he misses me, and I would respond in kind but we hadn’t planned any get togethers. It’s been something like 9 months since we last had sex or saw one another.
On my birthday he texted me. It was sweet, he said he wished he were here to enjoy it with me. A few days later I got another text. This time he was inviting me to a concert. He said a friend had given him their tickets because they couldn’t go and he had an extra one.
I was thrilled because, unbeknownst to him I was going to be in his town anyway! I was driving up to see family and had meant to text him and let him know but hadn’t done it yet. So when I told him this and that my sister would likely be able to babysit he sounded excited that I’d said yes. He emphasized that even if I wasn’t able to go to the concert with him he REALLY wanted to see me.
The concert was for an old school singer whose music I love, and I know he does too. It was an all white event and both of us were going to have to find something to wear. Being that it was nearly Labor Day I figured I’d be able to find something on sale. After telling me the details of where and what time it was and how we needed to dress, he disappeared.
That was the last I heard of him. I assumed he was working. He tends to be really slow responding to texts and constantly busy so I didn’t think much of it at first. I texted him a few times, mostly thanking him, and letting him know how stoked I was that he had invited me to come along!
Then I set off to find a dress. I found a darling little white sundress on clearance sale for $15 at the mall and some really cute shoes (used but in fantastic condition and a normally expensive brand) for $9. The dress didn’t require a bra, since it has a bit of one built in. I was thankful for that, having nothing strapless and white to wear otherwise. I got some white flower pins for my hair and a cute white bracelet and earrings.
I texted to let him know I’d found some things, because he’d expressed that he needed to find white clothing as well. No response, but I still wasn’t too worried. The concert was the next evening so I only had one day to look and get ready to drive his way. I even decided to swing by a tanning booth since I haven’t been in the sun much lately and I wanted my color to look good with the dress. I decided on sparkly gold nail polish for both fingers and toes.
By the next morning, when I was getting ready to leave town with the kids, I still hadn’t heard from him. By now I was getting a little worried but trying not to stress. We’ve had big blow outs in the past because I’d over-reacted (or so he says) to him not responding to texts when he’s busy with working. He always says that if he hasn’t responded then nothing has changed and that he is a man of his word and his feelings don’t change that quickly, so not to flip.
We’ve worked a LOT on this kind of stuff in the past. I mean, we were seeing each other and in an emotional relationship for 4 years. Our affair lasted two years during the end of my marriage and carried on over two years after that before it started to dwindle. He knows all too well that being stood up is a HUGE pet peeve of mine and that I tend to panic if I have any reason to believe plans are going to be changed at the last minute.
That’s what is really fucked up about all this. He knows me and knows my trigger points probably better than anyone on the planet. He knows all too well about my abandonment issues, and over the years that I’ve really been trying hard to work on them. So I finally texted that I was starting to feel anxious and stressed but that I was going to try not to worry and looked forward to hearing back from him soon.
I let him know I was on my way to town and was looking forward to seeing him when I arrived, that I’d be at my sister’s house. His cousin and my sister have a child together, so in that sense we are practically related and I’ve known him since we were kids. I reasoned that everything was probably fine and was proud of myself for not going overboard or getting angry with him for his lack of response. I was trying to remain calm.
All to no avail. I arrived and showered and got ready for the concert but still no word from him. I had an awful feeling in the pit of my stomach and just knew he wasn’t going to show. I didn’t put on my new dress and I told my sister what was up. She was like “yeah, if he hasn’t responded by NOW, he’s probably not coming”.
Wow. Just wow. I couldn’t believe he would do this. My sister said yeah, but what do you expect from the men in that family anyway? I had to acknowledge that there is some truth to that. I dated one of his half- brothers long ago and he stood me up constantly. I just wanted to believe he was better than that. Sure enough, he never showed and I haven’t heard a peep out of him.
I guess he must have invited someone else instead but the least he could have done was make up some stupid lame excuse. I’d rather hear one of those, and maybe even be lied to, than stood up like that. It was cruel. My sister said the same thing, and so did Mr. Firm when I told him. The Producer said I shouldn’t be hanging around lame ass bustas like that, haha and I even told the Pilot (we’ve been texting back and forth a bit, but no plans to get together again or anything as of now).
The Producer says he will take me out and I can wear my new white dress. 😀 At least I know he will most likely follow through! For my birthday he took me out to an expensive steak house and for a couples massage and had bought me roses and a card as well. He went to a white linen party himself recently and bought white clothes for that too so we could even match, lol. Mr. Firm thought it was pretty fucked up too and said I should send HIM a pic of myself in the dress.
I commented to the Pilot “see why I am so sensitive about stuff like that?” and he said “I can understand that but I didn’t have you come all the way up here and change my mind”…which is true. At least he gave me that much respect and in that sense his behavior is more forgivable. Thank God I didn’t make a trip up there JUST for that or I would be pissed beyond belief. I was coming up anyhow to get my hair done by my sis and hang out with the fam. I’d also made tentative plans with Mr. Firm for the following day.
As it is though, I was mad enough to text him to never bother contacting me again. I left it at that and said have fun at the concert. What an ass. I am so done with him and compared to the hot sex I ended up having with Mr. Firm the next day, he’s really not looking like he was ever much of a catch anyhow.
OMG. Mr. Firm was beyond fabulous in bed. He drove up at lunchtime (he’s 30 minutes away from my hometown) and got a cheap motel. I’d just had my hair done and couldn’t get all the dye off my head but he was cool about that, lmao. He said the same thing happens to him when he colors his goatee. He must have gray hairs in it or something, lol.
WOW, did my time with him ever make me feel better!! 😀 I think he has surpassed even the Professor in the bedroom. He’s almost up there with Mr. Married Man and is probably my second most favorite ever. I loved every minute of it!! We fucked twice and were in there for two hours.
He’d told me beforehand to come in the back door because the front desk staff was being nosy about his checking out a room during that time of day. I’m pretty sure by the time I left there was absolutely nothing left to their imaginations as to what we’d been doing, lmao! He even said he saw a shadow on the wall from someone standing in front of the door for quite some time while we were having sex, though it was gone by the time we’d finished.
I was trying to be quiet but it was impossible, lmao, and he was like “just let it go”. 😉 Oh my God, he is good!!! There is no doubt in my mind that he has had LOTS of practice, haha.
He texted me afterwards. “That was great. You fuck me just the way I like. Amazing.” He even commented a couple more times how freaking great it was and how he loves the way I fuck. Apparently it was good for him too! I have no idea why and it still baffles me that men say that when I don’t feel like I do anything special in bed, but I am thrilled that he likes it!! Haha
Nothing like getting under one man to get over another. Soooo glad I had someone to fall back on, because it really did help. I’m ready to forget the guy I had the affair with and move on. So much for that. Unbelievable that he would stoop that low but unless he’s dead or something there really isn’t a good enough excuse.
