Time to say goodbye

Right, so I wasn’t sure about this last time I blogged but now it’s been confirmed. My neighbour/sex buddy (for some reason I cringe at the phrase ‘fuck buddy’ – it’s so cliché but there’s no avoiding it). Anyway, I digress – he’s moving back home due to visa issues. He might be back, he might not be – that’s all dependent on the visa. 

This news kinda made me ‘re-evaluate’ our relationship as for me, there was no long term plan and hence I use the term relationship very loosely. Every day, you hear stories (or watch a movie) about some girl who had a platonic relationship which eventually becomes a romantic one. I can safely say, this is not the case here. I mean don’t get me wrong, there’s definitely a strong physical attraction there but truth be told, we’re just really good friends. We get along like a house on fire and I could spend hours and hours talking and hanging out with him but there’s no real ‘va-va-voom’.

Maybe I’m just being greedy or have unrealistic expectations but I really want excitement! The most excitement I’ve had lately is having too many cups of coffee and practically bouncing off the walls from my caffeine high. And I totally understand that the excitement might wane after several years of being together but I definitely think it makes for the start of a fantastic relationship.

Last month was fairly busy on the work front so I didn’t get to do much social stuff but I’ve got lots planned this month! I plan on going a little crazy and giving my liver a good work out! Hahaha!!!

Also, I think I have been signed up to do a charity skydive! I vaguely remember slurring out my consent at work drinks on Thursday. Funny how ideas seem so much better when you’re drunk. *shakes head* I’m terrified of heights but then again, I am looking to try new things and push my boundaries (and it is for a good cause)... I’m so conflicted!!! *sigh*

Anyway, back to my original point – he’s leaving! And it’s okay. I’m absolutely fine about it. We had a great time and I’ll miss hanging out with him but I’m definitely not heart- broken! All in all, it was a great summer distraction!

i'm with Luciano here, I'm guessing you're not so nonchalant as you appear if you're writing a whole post about it:)

As for the sky dive, have fun. You can mark it off your bucket list and it's for a great cause too.I hear it's really very safe.

Charity skydive sounds like a great idea. It's terrifying right up to the point where you leave the plane. Then it is magical. Don't pass up on this opportunity. I know of what I speak.

Good for you. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

@Luciano and Myne, I am gonna miss him! That's not it. I just don't feel 'heartbroken' ( - I have felt 'heartbroken before and it sucks!). I just feel like the same way I felt I'd miss my friends when I moved from Wales. We have a good relationship but I feel like its something to build a great friendship on (which we have) not a rock-solid relationship. I guess I might re-think this once the dust settles and see if I feel any different but I know myself and I'm pretty good.

@Cal, see, I don't know know if I could even hack it to that point! It seems too terrifying!!! I'll have to think about it properly. :-)

@Murees, thanks!!!

I think we all need some excitement in our lives!

Sometimes you miss people for all different kinds of reasons. It's like giving up a comfortable pair of worn out jeans. Good luck with the skydiving, but don't take the plunge unless you're ready. It may be easier to buy a new pair of jeans. Julie

Skydiving does sound so much fun! Glad you had fun while it lasted. Life is too short!

{ Barbara } at: 22 October 2011 at 11:04 said...

oh yeah! I'm with you when it comes the idea of sky diving! I haven't done that before, so I would be happy to read your story!

Good articles. I like it. Dont forget to give me your comment back into my blog, okay

Lola, I couldn't find you -- maybe looking in the wrong place. Although this post seems as if it should be a sad one, you write it with such humor that I can't help myself from laughing (sorry). You do have a talent to tell it like it is, even with humor.

{ Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness } at: 2 November 2011 at 02:22 said...

You tell such good stories and I would have you shipped here as my mail order bride. It's too bad you lost your sex friends. Those are rare and special when you can find them.

{ Lola X } at: 5 November 2011 at 13:24 said...

Thanks for all the comments everyone! *virtual hugs all around* I'm actually really fine but I guess I get the whole thing about the lady doth protest too much so I'm gonna stop talking about it! Hahahaha!!! :-)

{ Howlynn } at: 5 November 2011 at 23:00 said...

Nothing at all wrong with distractions -- grin! It's ok to miss them - there are lots of ways to care -- it doesn't all have to be forever to be perfect -- Protest all you want -- even a toy deserves a little sad when it turns up missing!
