Settling or Compromising?Sex/Romance

That One Connection

That One Connection


I’m addicted to him.

I realize this addiction after my latest encounter with Papi just a while ago, and while we have been at the sexual affair for almost 20 years, the unthinkable seems to be happening.

It just keeps getting better and this feeling is what frightens me the most.

Incredibly sensual and the chemistry is always intense.  The kind of interactions that most people will never experience in a life time.

We continue to explore and no take each other’s bodies to another level.  So tonight, it was my turn to be the dominant as I talked and nanny instructed him through each and every touch, kiss and stroke.

This man is truly my 50 Shades of Grey and this isn’t quite a sexual addiction, but an addiction to intimacy with him.

Oh, and what about dating?   Nope, nada, zilch.

I’m not even interested in trying to date and would be lying if I said it was solely due to the lack of quality men.  Instead,  my real issue is the “what if”.

What happens if I meet someone that I like?  That would force me to do exactly what I’ve done for years- pack him up and store him like some old discarded toy that had no use.  It’s like dating would be an unwelcome distraction or something.

Scary yet again, this all we have been for each other over the years and we know it is what it is, though each of us have done a few things outside of our boundaries as of late.

Him, with an invite to see him and enjoy a little music threw me for such a loop, I totally missed that he wanted to see me OUTSIDE the bedroom.  It never happened.  Totally out of character for him.

But I also stepped outside of my boundary a few days ago.  Texting him, saying how I couldn’t wait to see him when he returned from a trip.  Totally out of character for me.

Still….this isn’t us.

We know why I’m single and slowly but surely, I’m figuring out why he’s divorced and single and may likely have that status for the rest of his life.

Messed up situation that literally feels so good and so right.

I guess the cure I’m waiting for isn’t from the dating hangovers- maybe the cure is for him.

Hangover - a let down following great excitement or excess. Wow. This one sentence describes nearly all of my dating and relationship experiences!

I'm a 30 year-old woman muddling through the Los Angeles dating scene and yes - Believe all that you've heard about the screwed up men and women in La-La Land.

This blog is of my actual experiences that will either make you chuckle, laugh out loud or maybe say "aw.....".

If your dating hangovers seem worse than the next person's, read on, post a comment and enjoy!



  1. Damn woman, you’ve got black gold (assuming he’s a brother)!!!!

    As good as the sex may be you know what this means, right? He’s totally screwed up in some other area.

    Chile, get your groove on and think nothing else because like you said- there’s a reason why he’s not hooked up with anyone.

    1. You say black gold, I say it’s like kryptonite! It’s all good and you’re right An_gel, it is quite rare.

      The unknown about his single status isn’t too much of a mystery. I suspect his lackadaisical attitude towards most things is the reason why. It comes off as not giving a shit about most things so to a woman involved with him?

      It’s all bad.

      I’ll keep it in the bedroom.

  2. Hmmm…I can’t knock it. Hell, intimacy could be the cure for me right now too. Continue to enjoy the connection 😉

  3. Healthy and loving sex is a by-product of friendship and intimacy, not the cause of them. #TakeItSlow #DailyLove

  4. Sex can be a tricky thing and no matter what but like someone said earlier- this kind of experience is golden.
