Love life and the roller coaster

I love roller coasters. They offer the thrill of speed and unexpected turns. They can take you for a loop, and often provide the feeling of weightlessness. I see relationships with similar experiences.

This is my first blog and I hope to have several more during my journey with this site. My disclaimer is this, don't expect consistency, as I am often a random thinker. Don't read between the lines. Ask if you are confused, before you make assumptions.

My most recent relationship was an extreme roller coaster and I feel secure that the ride has come to an end. With coasters, usually I don't want to get off and I run back to the end of the line, waiting patiently to get back on. When the sex was good, it was like that weightless feeling and the adrenaline rush as you speed down the slope, wow we were hot! Smokin hot! Then, for what appeared to be no reason, we would take a quick turn (often in opposite directions) and it was like my head getting smashed against that pull down shoulder harness, only this one did not have padding.

I've read the book about men from mars. I know I am different. I just wish I could see the whips and turns coming. It soon got to the point where I wasn't racing to get back on the ride. I didn't find another coaster (woman). Instead, life just became quiet and boring. We were probably each waiting for the other to change. But roller coasters don't change. They are permanent structures until they are dismantled. I know that my relationship (ok, marriage) would not be a smooth ride if I decided to get back on. Sadly, I think we have both come to realize that we could be happier apart. This coaster has been torn down.

I admire the old wooden coasters. You know the ones, a little rickety, almost fragile. They are weathered with cracks and wrinkles. But the track and the train are joined together like well oiled machine. I recently saw a couple walking down my street. They both had white hair, the same dark tan, similar shorts and a shirt, and almost the same height. They fit together like no other I have ever seen. They could have been 100 years old and smiled together like they were in their twenties; the perfect wooden coaster. I can only hope that he is still running to get back on and on and on, every night.

So, I have opened up a little, shared some random thoughts, and made a simple comparison. I hope that I can learn more from you. But remember, it's just fun food for thought. There is no need to tell me right or wrong. I do not write to offend, only to entertain and learn.

Hey Ultima - your blog is whatever you want it to be ! Welcome and this is honestly the BEST way of "meeting" people and getting to know more about them.

The people here can be a fantastic support system, even though they may be thousands of miles away. They've touched my heart many times and given me support even my "touchable" friends don't.

I agree with the rollercoaster theory although I hate the damn things !!!! Last one I went on was one of those old rickety things that seemed like it was about to fall apart. It was called The Mouse and was at a seaside resort here in the UK. They aren't my cup of tea either - much rather a sandy beach and crystal clear waters and sunshine.

Anyway, welcome to Blogland - the people here have inspired me no end - I have recently started to write poetry - something that I never really did before. When I am inspired, it's here that I write and post it.

Welcome to the blogs! This was a great first post. The wonderful thing about your blog is that you can write what you want and not worry about offending someone. People have the right to agree and disagree with you.....but it is still a safe forum. Have fun with it. Hope you'll stop by my blog and say hello sometime.

blue eyes--welcome to the blogs. That was a vry good first post. I know where you are coming from about the rollercoaster ride. I have been on one for almost a year and a half. I am finally getting off. I deserve better than what I have been getting from him. I want someone who will want me as his one and only; I'm tired of being second best to some other woman. Good luck, and enjoy blogville.
