Blue eyes. Over 6 ft tall. Beard. Possesses the ability to give amazing orgasms. Nope, I’m not describing some sort of superhero. I’m describing the last two (non-family) important men in my life, both KJ and CS. This is where the similarities end. I really shouldn’t be making comparisons between the two as relationships I had with CS and my current relationship with KJ is vastly different. But I can’t help it.
The main reason is probably that CS is back in my life, by text, on a daily basis. We’re friends with a tiny bit of flirtiness, and we know where the line is. Of course if I’m going to be honest with myself, there are times when I’d still love to hear his voice, as it probably remains my favorite voice to listen to.
CS matches my wit better than KJ. KJ matches me better emotionally. But there’s no such thing as a Build-A-Bro workshop in a mall. KJ is truly a male version of me, while CS balanced me. I’m not trying to “decide” between the two as that decision has already been made. I know who I am with and want to be with. Maybe with the friendship with CS, I’ve got the best of both worlds now.
I’ve always had two theories, one of which I have disproven to myself. The first is that there really is no such things as friends with benefits. I’m sticking to that. Usually one person catches feelings and the other doesn’t. Or, in my case, after months of swearing we didn’t want a relationship, KJ and I fell for each other. The other theory that I’ve disproven is that exes can’t be friends. I do still have a slight emotional attachment to CS, but at the same time like where we are now. And if I’m being super honest, there are times when I really miss him and would love to see him again. But don’t know if that would be wise.
Totally unrelated to the post but it’s a big deal so I had to include. Congrats to my man, my KJ, of thirty days of sobriety today. I’m so proud of him, and I can still see when he struggles. For example, we went to a huge event with two other couples last week with 40,000 people, who were openly walking down the street drinking. He was shaking thirty minutes in but refused to leave because it was something I wanted to do. Little did he understand that his well being is way more important to me than being at any event, Our relationship has its ups and downs. It’s not easy. But he’s truly killing this sobriety thing.
