Roommates


I live with my sister. And being a private person, I keep as much of my online life as possible out of her head. I try my best for her not to know anything about who I chat with, and especially who I meet. I don't know what it's such a big secret to me. She doesn't ever say anything to me about any of it. She used to ask who I was going out with, I think mainly because she wanted to be a part of my life and it bothered her that I had outside interests that I didn't want to share. Maybe deep down I'm ashamed of my promiscuity. I can really see that, especially lately. But the biggest thing is that I don't want her telling people about what I do.
So this whole living with my sister deal makes it difficult for me to meet people. I can't ever have anyone over at my house. And alot of times I think guys think I'm lying about my living situation, like they think I'm really married and just not being honest.
And this week, I made up a big huge elaborate lie about being out of town. I told my sister that I was going on a due-diligence trip for work, but in reality, I just went down to Lawton to have a final fling with a guy I met online. He's headed back to NC this week and I just had to be with him again. And I'm terrible at driving long distances, so I didn't want to drive back late last night, so I just stayed the night with him.
Does my lying ever pay off? Sometimes. It certainly did last night. Other nights, it's been a total waste of time.
So my goal for the next year is to get my own place. Hopefully she'll be able to afford her own place as well. I just can't continue to live with her anymore. And it's a shame, because she really is a great roommate, with the exception that she is ALWAYS here.

Reading your post brought tears. Remembering all the times with my sister, the long long boughts of uncontrolable laughter, and our once close bond.

We don't talk anymore, and the recent passing of our mother only further impacted in stone our distance.

There's no one in the world like a sister. Whether good or bad. I've had some really close friendships with women, who I call 'sister', but the friendship comes no where close to the relationship my sister and I used to have.

I only hope for you and your sister, that whatever difference's you have, and it sounded like there are some, that you don't lose your sisterhood.
