Grateful


After the last post, I think I've come across as being a little ungrateful for the past weekend's event. I am, in every way, very grateful for the time and energy for those who helped to make this happen. sexydisaster30 did a wonderful job in organizing this, and I just wanted to extend my gratitude in that regard. There were many people who worked very hard behind scenes as well, although I'm not sure they want their names to be listed, so I'm not going to do so here.

I'm excited to know that this was the largest AdultFriendFinder blog meet ever. I'm excited to have been a part of it. It really was great meeting all of the people of which I've read in the past, and to meet new ones of which I'll read now.

To me, this site is a great thing. It allows us to do these kind of things and it's always great to meet new people.

The downfall to this last weekend was that it was soooo terribly hard to actually have in depth conversations of any nature. I'm not all that outgoing of a fellow when it comes to meeting new people anyway, so this made things that much harder for me.

Again, the only other major issue that I have is how things were handled in the end. I know that she thought I was mad at her, but I wasn't. I guess I'm just too direct of a person. I like news delivered to me face-to-face. I don't like finding out about things after the fact. If she truly were not interested, or the group felt they needed to protect her, I wish a representative from the group would've told me about it, rather than me finding out later.

Ok, so in the past I've made stupid decisions while drinking... However, I also want people to be aware of how well I've done for the last month or longer. I've caused no fights. I've caused next to zero arguments. I've been the happiest I've been (due to my sexy red-headed girlfriend) in what I believe has been my entire love life. My life has made a turn for the better, but it sucks knowing how hard it is to be able to run from your past... I have a rep for not being the smoothest guy out here. I have a knack for pissing people off. I get it. When is somebody going to recognize my efforts?

Again, everything went very, very well! When I envisioned this event it was exciting. When I participated in the event, I saw the minor details that really pushed this over the top. This was done w/ high class.

Aas, Just stopped in to say it was nice meeting you I read your previous posts and while I have no idea what you're talking about in regards to the "guarding the psycho" issues, I wanted you to know that you didn't come across that way to me at all and I'm sure your friends were just being protective of you because they love you. HOpe things get better for you soon

AAS - I read these two posts last night and needed a little time to think about them. I am going to comment on both of them here. Hope that's okay.

First of all, had I been there, which was the initial plan until my puppy got sick thanks to SD and her non, I would have spoken to you without monitor. I know that you would have acted like a perfect gentleman. I also know I can take care of myself so "protection", contrary to others opinions for me, is not needed. I must admit my gem was concerned for my safety, but that is his nature. He is not very trusting. I am.

That being said, no woman can ever be to careful. If her attending the meet came into question because of you or her fear of you, it is appropriate for your friends to step in and make her feel comfortable. They know you and they are the ones that can do so out of true love for you. They did and their honesty seemed to sting you.

Understandable... however, that is the nature of good friendships. When Seriously was just out of a relationship and starting a new one, you called him on his being in love with being in love. It may have stung but he was better for your comments. Justa's comments, Mo's, Elbman, Bardic... they all are giving you a greater gift then you know in my opinion. They know your flaws, they accept you regardless of them, and they do their best to help you conquer them.

I would encourage you to evaluate the longterm friendships not just this one stinging instance. They have been there for you. It's clear from your blog and theirs. You are hotheaded. You know this, they know this... people like me who don't even know you know this. Perhaps, the best thing to come from this is that you know that you need to approach your friends and tell them how they could deal with this circumstance in the future. Don't expect them to change what they do... but maybe they will be willing to change how they do it.

Regardless, don't let any of this make your emotions swing to the point you start drinking again. You, my binary friend, seem to be your own worst enemy... so call up your friends.... go to a movie... and get on with living... Don't waste your time on this. Kisses (not wet sloppy one's... innocent sweet one's) and Monster Hugs.
