Say What You Mean/ Mean What You Say

Greetings, everyone!

I have to apologize for the lack of blogging lately. Offline life keeps getting in the way, darn it.

Your friend DCE is an enthusiastic amateur gardener, so I've been spending some time outside (zonked on allergy medicine). It's a small price to pay for trying to add a little beauty to my corner of the world.

I recently got to hang out with my AdultFriendFinder date (from a few weeks ago) again. I found out that he can be easily bribed with a cherry Slurpee from 7/11. (I wonder what other things he can be bribed with...)

Today's blog title is not just a line from a Fixx song. ("One Thing Leads to Another" for all of those who weren't digging this tune back in the 80s.)

I've been making every attempt to send a response to everyone that sends me an email. (And yes, I think the auto-response does count. If I don't send a Quick Reply or a personal one, I'm just not interested.)

Anyhoo, I've noticed a little trend that happens almost every time I send the Quick Reply that says, "I think we're interested in different things". (That one generally goes out in response to men looking for a "no strings attached" arrangement or guys looking for playmates for their wives or girlfriends.)

The NSA guys almost always come back with, "That's the impression that I got from your profile" or "I didn't mean 'no strings' exactly..." LOL

Huh? I don't know how much clearer I can be. I'm looking for a steady, ongoing relationship. I know it's a scary word, but a "relationship" is most definitely a string. LOL

Not all strings are necessarily bad. My hope is to be a good friend to someone and maybe add a little fun to his life. I'm not looking to complicate matters for myself or for him or to disrupt any other relationships he might have.

When I read "NSA" I take it for what it is. I'm not criticizing anyone that prefers that sort of relationship. That's just not me. If you want an NSA relationship, that's cool. Stick to your guns. Everyone should get what they want.

As for the guys looking for other women for their significant other, I can't help but wonder whose idea it is. I would think that if the woman was really interested, she could sit down at the keyboard and send out a few emails herself. LOL

Like I said in one of my earlier blogs, I've never been with a woman (and I'm not opposed to the idea), but doing it just so someone else can get his jollies isn't at the top of my priority list. LOL

Anyway, when I've sent the "different things" reply in response to those emails, the guy will come back and say, "Okay then. How about just you and me?" Hey! What happened to the lady you were so concerned with finding playmates for? LOL

Wow. That post went on a little longer than I'd anticipated.

Time to rejoin life away from my keyboard.

I hope everyone has a fantastic week ahead. : )

I know exactly what you mean. I say often, to each his or/her own, but I know what I like and want. I hate for a man to try and change my mind about what I want, just to suit himself.

Keep on blogging!

I am the real deal! "Come Get Me!!!"
